This Is What Happens When I Don’t Make a List

Posted in General at 3:37 pm by Ian

I just got back from grocery shopping. My purchases were:

  • Cereal
  • Crackers
  • Lettuce
  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Limes
  • Apple Juice
  • Three kinds of salsa
  • Lunch meat
  • Five kinds of cheese
  • Salmon
  • One bottle of wine
  • 659.6 ounces of beer

Yeah, that oughta keep me for the week.


  1. JT said,

    What, no milk for the cereal?

    Also, since I don’t by alcohol, I may be missing something, but how do you by beer that with .6 ounces at the end?

  2. Ian said,

    I already had milk.

    And European beer that’s sold in bottles with mL sizes.

  3. Ethan said,

    Well hey, lunch meat and cheese sets you up for weeks. I mean, I assume you already had bread, but even if not…

    Out of curiosity, which kinds of cheese?

  4. Liza said,

    You got your nutrients and you got your beer, so I think you did well…

  5. Ian said,

    Cheddar, Brie, Swiss, Mozarella, and the other Mozarella, the one floating in water.

  6. Lisa said,

    [reads list of cheeses]

    Ian, you are my hero.

  7. Ian said,

    Wow. That’s all it took? What a misguided two years I’ve spent.

  8. Ethan said,

    w00t for Brie.

  9. Matt said,

    Bah. Who cares about the cheese list. I want the beer list.

    I just love being back home in Seattle where I can buy Alaskan Amber by the 24 pack rather than the sixes only available at Liquorama.

  10. Ian said,

    A 12 pack of that Rialto stuff from Trader Joes that tastes like Corona but is cheap. A 4 pack of Russian Imperial Stout. One largish and strangly sized bottle of oatmeal stout. One largish and oddly sized bottle of Double Chocolate Stout (which, c’mon, I had to buy). Three 12 packs of XX Special Lager, because they were on sale at $10 per 12 pack, and there were only three in the store.

  11. Lisa said,

    [reads list again]

    I like the limes. They prevent scurvy.

  12. Ethan said,

    haharrrrr, indeed they do, missy. P-)
    James Lind was a good man, rest his soul where e’er it lies. ‘Tis a cursed shame he was a redcoat.
