I don’t really know what to call this. It’s mini-burrito-looking-ish springrolls with chicken, mushrooms, and avocados.
We have this grocery problem at home where because of my unstable schedule, we never know if we should stock the fridge. I would spend days at home with no food in the fridge because I’m either too lazy to go shopping, or because I don’t know if I’m actually going to be at home. Sometimes we would stock the fridge and won’t get time to cook until the vegetables have all wilted.
Yesterday as my mom was heading to the supermarket I told her I’d be home for lunch the next day so some veggies would be good. She came home and this happened:
Mom: Hey I bought these fresh mushrooms.
Me: *Immediately pays attention to these special mushrooms she’s making a point about*
Mom: You should eat them ASAP though, I got them on sale…
Me: You mean you got the not-fresh ones that are gonna go bad if I don’t eat it soon, which is why they’re on sale?
Mom: That’s what I meant, just eat them.
So I opened the fridge this morning, having completely forgotten about these what I now call ASAP-mushrooms, and lo and behold! Mushrooms! Too many to finish in one go! CHICKEN! THREE BREASTS!
*Immediate thought: I won’t be home tomorrow to finish all this meat and magic, I mean, ASAP-mushrooms*
That was a cue to actually make brunch and forget about having egg whites and avocados for breakfast. In my mind I knew those avocados are going to rot if I don’t eat them either, so I decided to put everything together and demolish it. We have these springroll sheets sitting in our fridge, which I also know they’re going to make mould babies soon, so…

STY STY STY STY STY STY STY STY STY STY STY !!!!
Apparently once you’ve had it you’re prone to get it again; and in my case, again and again and again and again. I know some simple home remedies and have an ointment for it and last time I got a sty I was able to keep it under control, which is why this time I only decided to go see a doctor when it got really crazy yesterday. Of course, the one day I decide to go see a doctor it’s a Sunday and the clinic I usually go to is closed – story of my life.
Ah, for those of you who don’t know what sty/styes are: it’s basically an eye infection caused by blocked pores. It’s basically a pimple/acne somewhere on your eye. The ‘head’ of the ‘acne’ is usually along your eyelashes or ON THE INSIDE OF YOUR EYELID. OH MY DAYS I’M GROSSED OUT JUST TALKING ABOUT IT.
My styes have gotten so out of hand before that I’ve had to get a procedure done: it’s where they (warning, gross stuff ahead… guard your gag reflexes) clamp down on your alreadyswollen and in pain eyelid, flip it, and go all out squeezing all the pus out of your infected eyelid. Woot! Partay!
So yes, that’s me. That procedure (the nurses and doctors call it a small operation… oh my days I’m still thinking about pus, are you thinking about pus?) is definitely one of the most painful experiences of my life. That’s why every time my eye gets infected my stress levels are much higher than the seriousness of the sty itself. Obviously stress doesn’t help it at all, and once again, story of my life. Anyway, I went to the doctor’s yesterday to get some new meds and I think I’m my the way to recovery. I think this would be a quicker process if I went to my eye clinic and paid a load of money for a crap load of pain again, but… I think I can do without it this time. Thanks.
By the way, I mentioned home remedies earlier on: If you’re at the beginning of an eye infection, the smartest thing would still be to go see a doctor – if not, find a clean towel or gauze and soak it in warm water, and put it over your eye (please don’t burn your eye). Make sure you’re not using the same part of the towel/gauze as the bacteria may spread and cause a more serious infection. The heat will open up your pores and the infection will subside/drain. I’ve heard that the steam from warm showers/a pot of water would help too; by logic it should, but I haven’t tried it. The other thing you should do on top of this is to go to a pharmacy and tell them you have an eye infection and ask for an ointment for it. It’s probably best to do this if you’ve been prescribed one by a doctor before and ask for the same thing at a pharmacy.
