^I had to search that -otherwise I would never have guessed you bought a new pair of shoes.



Darn 'mericans; always using brand-names when there are perfectly good old words that mean the same...

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I posted these in the picture thread as well, but i figured i'd post them here too. not my latest, but the latest memorable purchase. figured groceries doesnt count.





This last one died a bloody death unfortunately. I used as a pressure bandage shortly after i bought it.

I've made three trips to the grocery store in three days for various items. It wouldn't be so bad if Mom didn't live 40 minutes from the nearest store.

Oh, you're funny, Mr.-"Just-opened-another-Krombacher". Everytime you post in the "What are you eating/drinking?" thread lately, I go, "Flensburger Frühlingsbock??? What the hell is that?" and I have to go google it.

Except now I've figured out that 99% of the time you say a brand name, it's beer.



(And if it ends in -ost, it's probably cheese. Yummy cheese.)

Oh yes I dih-iiid. And I'm about to head out the door to see if I can find Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle.

Just be glard you're not in a wheelchair and can't drive like me. Luckily, our grocery store is right down the street, and when my girlfriend is at work, I go by the chair and get little (by that I mean non-frozen) things. 20 minutes up and 20 back. It would probably take less, but I always treat myself to a Subway sandwich or McDonald's Big Mac when I get there. Both are in the same parking lot, and, I figure I've earned them. Plus, all that arm pumping makes me hungry.

Though, mostly I cheat and go on Saturdays when my girlfriend is off work. That way she drives and we're there in two minutes.

Oh, and OT: my purchase for today was a haircut.

^There's a guy in our neighborhood who has a motorized chair and goes out in the street---with the tall, orange safety flag---and does his errands. Luckily, it's a really suburban neighborhood and people just drive around him. I always worry that the guy will get hit, though. I see him rolling back to his house with a few plastic bags from the HEB or CVS on the corner.

I received a wonderful, wonderful gift. Something I've wanted for a loooong time.

Now I feel like, say, Robert Redford or something.
