Omg, I’ve been catching up on new Simpsons episodes over the weekend and I’m quite obsessed with the silliness of their Pokémon GO parody (which they call Peekimon Get). I can’t believe I didn’t know about it until now!
I haven’t done a Dollarama Review in a while, but I thought this thing would be worthy of one. After all, it is described as the revolutionary concept in peeling!
I mean for $3 how could I resist right? It promised to make my carrot peeling mess free.
Here is what it is like. Giant carrot to scale. It takes up a lot of room. I don’t think the handle part needed to be that thick. or long.
Anyways, I tested it on the carrot. It was dull. It was also hard to aim where you were peeling, so it took me a long time to actually peel the carrot. I found the carrot shavings also tend to jam the already shitty blade, so every once in a while I need to scrape it.
Since I am currently in northern Quebec, I’m being immersed in French. I’ve taken French classes of some sort until I was 22, so I have a decent comprehension of the language but since it’s not a daily thing, I have to think a bit before I can form a sentence as a reply. Being in a place where you’re required to speak is actually helping a lot. Learning or keeping a new language is definitely easier if you can use it practically!
Anyways, there are some things that becherelle’s and dictionaries can’t teach and that is phrases and sayings. My favourite so far is “Lâche pas a la patate”, which in English literally translates to “Don’t let go of the potato”. However, it is a funny way to say “Don’t give up”.
