11-27-2007, 03:52 AM
...a magazine, bag of crisps and a packet of sweets.

11-27-2007, 03:56 AM
A NY Post, a pomegranate, and a box of Raisin Bran.

11-27-2007, 04:01 AM
a bowl of soup.

11-27-2007, 04:01 AM
Oh geeze... it's been a few weeks... probably diapers.

11-27-2007, 04:04 AM
a stint on a table so that a woman could flay my face off with sand crystals and some sort of acid from hell.

I'll look great as soon as the tartan grid fades.

11-27-2007, 04:04 AM
Um, I guess this would have to be the last thing that went into the grocery cart this morning. Which would be a... tomato. I was going to get an organic one because they looked redder and nicer but then there was this guy standing in front of them squeezing all of the avocados and I didn't want to bother him so I went and picked out a regular artificially ripened one instead.

11-27-2007, 04:07 AM
what else... chocolate. :)

11-27-2007, 04:07 AM
A bag of rasberry-mocha coffee grounds, a box of blue gel pens and 2 reams of paper.

One would think I didn't have a day job.

A set of tires (we're getting ready for the holiday adventure to the south); oh, and my credit card is still smoking.....

$800 for a set of tires - at Cost Co - aargh.......

A Whirlpool front-load washing machine. :LilLove:

A NY Post, a pomegranate, and a box of Raisin Bran.I suffered a pomegranate injury last night. I was freeing the seeds when the rind slipped and jabbed deep under my thumbnail. Ouch. It's all swollen and tender today. Be careful. Pomegranates are dangerous.

11-27-2007, 05:01 AM
Pomegranates are fantastic. I love them beyond all reason and eat them until the tip of my tongue is raw from prodding at the little seeds.

They are dangerous, and like all things beautiful, perilous and delicious, they have stolen a corner of my heart.

11-27-2007, 05:02 AM
A gallon of milk and a dozen eggs. If all goes well, I'm havin' me a fried egg sammich for dinner tonight!

11-27-2007, 05:03 AM

I bought my lunch at work this afternoon.

Oh! And I bought the One Republic CD yesterday. I usually don't buy CDs but I got this one for a great price and it's a really good CD. Wasn't expecting it to be so laid back.

11-27-2007, 11:21 PM

Maryn, who doesn't put that many miles on her car

11-30-2007, 05:39 PM
Ha! I bought 7 books last week, was given 3 and borrowed 16 from my mom! Then took them all on a plane. :)They let you? You could knock someone unconscious with all those books. You could've taken over the plane, brandishing a tome at useless flight attendants and cowardly pilots. You could have caused an INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT!

What were they thinking - letting you on a plane with all those books?

What the state of National Security coming to?

11-30-2007, 08:45 PM
35 yards of Hemlock wood chips for the garden (which is now under snow) and they are delivering it now!!!! $250 for sawdust!!! Man, am I in the wrong business!!

It's raining here too, but I like walking without one. ;)

11-30-2007, 10:14 PM
I'm the same way...but with kids... and I need to do my hair for a meeting... so I don't want it ruined. *sigh*

It was just a couple hours ago... laundry soap for me *sarcastically dances with joy*, deoderant for Hubby, a filing box to organize some paperwork, and (is anyone who knows me surprised?) a bottle of Starbucks mocha frappuccino. Man, I sound like a broken record with that, don't I?

12-01-2007, 12:33 AM
Seven books for $3.50. I love the library's used book sale. Wish I'd gotten there earlier; I'm sure all the good stuff was snatched up.

Maryn, still working on the complete Sue Grafton series

Lunch for my friend who just turned 40.
