grocery store antics

2014-5-29grocery stores are so boring, i’m surprised stuff like this doesn’t happen more often.

My biggest grocery store pet peeve is that Mr noodles and generic brand instant noodles are in the soup section, but itchiban and other actually good asian brands of instant noodles are in the international foods section.  I always seem to forget this fact in the heat of shopping for groceries and compromise on my instant noodle selection for inferior instant options.

In normal grocery stores like super store, it’s easier to remember… but in tack-on grocery stores, like walmart, where it seems their international section moves based on whatever stock they have, i can never find my Udon bowl!

Have a great thursday everyone!


…more evidence of my mental demise…



It’s monday!  Which means three things!  1)  most people start their work week   2)  It’s my day off  3)  Diana starts her maternity leave!  Which means, for the forseeable future, Diana will have no more sunday-night depression!

The day of little Xerxe’s arrival is getting closer!  I’m at that stage where I’m largely nervous about becoming a parent.  If I can barely function now, I can’t even imagine how ridiculous I am gonna be with zero sleep.  Well, OK.  Barely function is an exaggeration.  But still, it has me worried.
