Your Choice of Rabbit Holes

It’s the end of the winter Lobster Season today and all the traps have to be retrieved by midnight. Starting tomorrow many of the boats will be dragging for scallops. You can tell who is planning to go by checking for the A-frames mounted on deck, the dragging gear,ย  and the small shocking shacks they add. All of the scallops have to be shucked (or in local parlance “shocked”) before they are off-loaded.

Sitting in a cold plywood box on the open water, in sub-zero temperatures and high winds, wielding very sharp knives, is not for everybody. Certainly not me. I’ll deal with the little morsels once they appear at my door already shelled.

I went out early yesterday to check the harbour and go watch the waves arriving in advance of our latest storm. This one not only brought a lot of wind but also freezing rain.

The air is fairly still this morning, the temperature has taken a nose-dive, there is ice everywhere, and we have some snow flurries. I wore my ice cleats when I took the small monster out. One of my better purchases. grin

I had another one of those “the world is seriously deranged” moments. Honestly, I used to think drop-crotch pants was a sign of the apocalypse. I seriously underestimated the number of bizarre life choices to be had.

I don’t want you to think that I spend all my time dozing in a recliner. In this weather I do find it comforting to sit in front of the wood-burning stove and read or watch TV – but I still get some things done. However, these are the choices I make when I have the time – particularly in the winter.

I also don’t want you to think I’m going to share weird things I’ve learned on YouTube every time I post. Maybe just once a week. ๐Ÿ™‚ However, I did travel into another alternate reality yesterday.

I learned a tiny bit about Biokinesis. sigh It’s not as gross as Mukbang, but it is (to my unenlightened mind) still weird. “Biokinesis is a process of reprogramming the cells and DNA through a person’s mind. This may involve altering, healing and destroying the cancer cells,increasing body mass. Also it allows the person to change physical appearance and even heal the physical body.”

The practitioners on YouTube are obsessed with changing their eye colour. Honestly, if you can alter your DNA with subliminal messages while listening to birds chirp (huh?) I don’t think my eyes would be my first target. But then I’m a Boomer, what do I know.

  1. I almost bought some ice cleats recently after encountering frozen snow on a mountain walk. I’ve never used any before and I would only get some cheap ones, so in the end I thought I’d be better just keeping away from the frozen snow, rather than putting my life (and feet) into the hands of some equipment of questionable quality. As for Biokinesis, I’m not sure I’ve heard the term before but I did once come across the eye-colour-changing thing; attempting to consciously change body appearances, and DNA, like that seems very odd and far-fetched, but I’m curious now so I’ll delve a little more down that rabbit hole!
