Taking Odds

I haven't been inside a grocery store in nigh on two weeks.

Our freezer is almost empty. Our stash of canned goods and dry staples is depleted. Fresh vegetables? Fruit? Milk? Eggs? Opening our refrigerator I see only beer and water. And the door full of condiments with nothing to put them on.

The cupboards are bare. We haven't prepared anything close to a meal since we had muffins (made with our last two eggs and water instead of milk) and bacon (from the freezer) for breakfast two Sundays ago. I'm sick of carryout. We need a personal shopper for times like these.

The other night we eagerly snacked on stale Goldfish crackers, cheddar cheese flavor. I felt like I'd struck gold when I found that package buried in the cabinet behind the dog treats.

Yet is the project done? No, but it's goddamn close. How can one little room be so time consuming? It just is. Then there's Spring, which has completely sprung. It's full of distractions.

Pictures Sunday, or I'll eat my hat followed by a home-cooked meal for dessert. I miss my kitchen.

Muffins and beer, is anything else necessary?

Fast food freak that I am, I will admit to being a trifle bored with the pizza, chinese, and burgers.

If WE end up eating OUR hats, I'm going to soften mine with ample quantities of beer.

What kind of hat?

WenWhit said...

Preferably not the hat splotched with drywall mud...

Sounds like my fridge/freezer all the time. Beer, which I don't even drink but got for free for helping with a GLAAD event, and water, which I drink all the time. LOL. Please, don't eat the hat. That would suck.

BTW, ladies, please please please check out my blog today and take the AFA LGBT Discrimination Poll..we need to take action and tip the scales and there is a link to a one-question poll that I urge you to take. And then pass it on. Drop me a line if you are able to do this..it would mean a lot to see our progress! And get the word out there that we are not going to shut up and roll over so the "American Family Values" people can prove we're not worth equal rights. UGH! I just get so heated over this.

Hat eating is bad news. Don't start eating condiments either. Even if Reagan said ketchup was a vegetable, it's best put on things (Not hats!).
