The Grocery Shopping Saga

:note: Hedwig and the Angry Inch – “In Your Arms Tonight”

When I go grocery shopping, I tend to spend $20 and then come home with nothing to eat. I don’t know how it happens. The last time, Daniel threatened to call his mom so she could teach me the “right way” to grocery shop. It was very funny.

He insists that lists are the key to everything, but the truth is, the last time I shopped I did use a list and still came home with nothing. So the other day he sat down with me (figuratively speaking) and talked me through making a good grocery list, one that will enable me to come home with stuff to eat.

I think it worked; I spent $30 but I have stuff for sandwiches (sammiches!) and I have fruit and pudding and carrots. All decent lunch items. Yay!

I also got ingredients to make this really good, really easy snack. You take 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of honey, and 2 cups of powdered milk, and moosh it all together. The end. I haven’t had it for years but I really liked it. And it’s not too horrible for you, since peanut butter has protein and milk is, well, milk. I won’t pretend to know a lot about nutrition, but I know there’s a lot worse things I could be eating.

Completely unrelated: I’m just now starting on my homework for tomorrow. :dis: Well, that’s only sort of true. I got an okay start on it today at work, but then I’m just now continuing to work on it. And I actually have to build it out into an HTML page again this time. Lame. I wish I wasn’t so tired. :sleep: My alarm clock woke me up in the middle of my sleep cycle this morning so I was extra groggy. I hate that. I did take about a 15-20 minute nap today but it wasn’t nearly enough to refresh me. Ah well, I’ll work with what I’ve got. :)

    What do you call that creation of yours? Do you spread it on bread or just eat it as is? It sounds pretty good to me. I might try it sometime.

    Well… that peanut butter conglomeration doesn’t SOUND too bad, but let’s think. Sugar gives you quick energy *ding* this form of energy is best suited for mid game refrshers, and 6 year-olds looking for a quick and dirty high *ding* if this energy was not immediately harnesed and turned into motion and vigor the body will store this energy until it is needed *ding* fat is excess energy from food your body has stored for later use *ding* so… sugar = quick energy… energy not used quickly = fat… computer nerd = not too energetic… so logic follows that sugar + computer nerd = do I really need to say it?

    *ding* IM AN ASS!

    Zombie, you just eat it. It kind of works in place of trail mix. I don’t remember what it’s called.

    And Paul… :worried: Why must you prey on my insecurities?
