Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

A gyro from the Pita-Pit. It was a recommendation from my daughter so I thought I'd give it a try. It'll be the last I order. I wasn't bad - it just wasn't great. It was only OK so I'll take a pass from here on in.

^Damn. I don't think I've ever spent more than $40 on groceries! Then again, I can only buy what I can carry five miles.

I just bought a really bitchin' pair of extra high black Docs. They are amazing and make me feel like kicking things in a good way. When we were kids we used to call them "gut-stompers." I don't how regional that slang term was, but it's so appropriate!

It's for a family of six for two weeks. Food ain't cheap.

Me and the wife celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary by going out for Chinese food, went to see Don Jon and I picked up Star Trek: Federation The First 150 Years.

Poor bank card has been abused this week.

You carry your groceries 5 miles to get home? Is that literal - or by public transit? How does your milk, etc. not spoil?

Two 9 volt batteries to change out in the smoke detectors.

The Clone Wars season 5 on DVD, and $55.00 worth of groceries for the week.

I haven't seen $300.00 grocery bill since my brother and I both lived at home. It's just me and my girlfriend now, so.....

Yeah, that's literal, but I'm not complaining. I don't feel right unless I get my walk in every day, and if I can carry groceries the ten minute walk from the supermarket nearer my apartment then I can carry them for the hour and a half walk from the cheaper supermarket with higher quality food and better selection that's in Manhattan. No matter where I shop I can only buy what I can carry.

And milk won't spoil in an hour and a half! Even on a hot day it's still cold by the time I get home.

Ah. That's explains it. Hubby and I hit the store every week, and there's only the two of us.
