- I bought some soy milk oer the weekend. It's okay I guess. That is to say it doesn't suck and it's not as horrible as I thought it would be. I got the regular mix and think I'm going to try the extra vanilla flavoured stuff next time. On a completely unrelated note, does anyone know the best place to buy a hemp totebag? I've suddenly got a strong urge to buy one, along with some hemp sandals.
- I was at the Huge Hawk grocery outlet on Saturday, going through the self-scan line which I completely love now even though I scorned it when it first came around. I've got all the bar-code items scanned and I'm down to the produce which you have to set on the little weigher thingy then push the correct button for that type of produce. Simple stuff, no? I grab the onion from my basket and press the "FRESH PRODUCE" button on the screen. A favourites screen pops up and right there I see "yellow onion" which I push. The machine says (it talks to you) "move your YELLOW ONION to the belt" which I do.
About one second after I plop the onion on the belt and it starts the journey down to the packing area I hear this loud shrill voice yelling SPANISH SPANISH SPANISH and I look up to see this Huge Hawk worker women running over towards me. She grabs the onion from the belt and proceeds to tell me that "it's a Spanish onion, not a yellow onion." Like who would know? Let alone that, she could tell that from half way across the store???? Damn. So she types some magic code and undoes the yellow onion price and then runs it through with the Spanish onion price, saving me 6 friggin cents. That's right, she saved me from almost certain financial ruin as I was OVERCHARGING MYSELF 6 WHOLE CENTS for that onion. Crikey.
- I watched The Sting and Dogville over the weekend. The Sting holds up pretty well and was pretty entertaining. Meanwhile I only got about 45 minutes into Dogville and hit the eject button. P.U. Alright, it gets good reviews, maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it, but I couldn't even begin to get interested in it. Maybe if it was like a regular movie and not some play with no props I would have liked it better, but as it stands I couldn't be arsed to watch the whole thing.
- A friend of mine loaned me a copy of The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt which I'm about 200 pages into. Thus far it's great and he's my new hero. Anyone who would threaten to bite a political nemesis in the balls, to his face, is an alright chap to me.
