milk, wine, chocolate, Cheetos. what?

I hit the Target tonight for the necessary dairy staple and helped out my best friend by picking up chips for her son's birthday party tomorrow, then grabbed some chocolate for another friend's housewarming gift and THEN discovered one of my favorite wines (Chateau Ste. Michelle Gewurtztraminer [I really like saying that with my Frau Blucher accent]) on sale for $5.49. But I didn't feel judged at all in the checkout line, mainly because it was 8:15 p.m. and the checker was just ready to go home, not worry about my items. Though she did card me; I immediately prayed for a thousand blessings on her.

This post is essentially my online version of a lost grocery list; if it were on actual paper and dropped outside the store, someone might send it in to Found Magazine and speculate on my hormonal cycle.

Please feel free to skip that step.

I'm jealous, deep in my heart. Hope you had a great time last night.

(Are you hanging out at the par-tay tonight, or are you free as a bird and up for hanging out? Or hanging out at said partay, with crazy costumed kids...there's a question in there somewhere. Hopefully, I will see you tonight.)

The weirdest look I ever got at the checkout was the night before my sister's wedding shower. I was helping with the food, games, and I'd waited until the very last minute to get her a gift... so my items on the Target check-out belt? Celery, Scotch Tape, and an XL satin teddy. Oh yeah, the guy looked at me, but I didn't even try to explain.

I'm stuck on the whole you got carded thing.

I wouldn't get carded if I wore a baby bonnet and extra moisturizer.

You lucky!

I love to say Gewutztraminer. It's too bad all mine gives me a headache. I can, however, devour me some chocolate!

you should have also picked up a fiber supplement to feel really judged.

I laughed at the part about you "Frau Blucher accent"! Hee hee hee! Just another example of what makes you so cool. I can tell if I want to be friends with someone if they're Young Frankenstein fans. What's great is that when we introduced our kids to the movie, they loved it. Otherwise, we would have had to abandon them.
