Tim and I just got back from the grocery store. I was bitching about how much I hate New Year’s Eve and how depressing I find it, and Tim was doing his usual “don’t be sad” that he always does whenever I am sad about something. (It is very nice and thoughtful but it usually doesn’t work.)
Then I saw a middle-aged (read: much older than me, probably around 50) woman with a case of Natty Light in her cart, and I felt a whole lot better. 2009 hasn’t exactly been an awesome year, but at least I’m not spending New Year’s Eve drinking shitty beer.
Based on the things people were buying, I’m glad I’m not going to a party. The woman ahead of us in the checkout line had six bags of Tostitos and a package of Azteca flour tortillas. The woman behind us had some cheap champagne, ice, and “Stoned Wheat Crackers.” We had:
- toilet paper
- cream cheese
- four cans condensed cream of chicken soup
- organic milk
- heat and eat cheese fondue
- fancypants sourdough bread
- crescent rolls
- green grapes
- two heads of garlic
- a candy thermometer
NOW WHICH PARTY WOULD YOU WANT TO GO TO? Either we’re going to be doing some weird shit with food, or we’re having cheese fondue for dinner tonight and then Tim is making chicken roll-ups tomorrow night.
In completely unrelated news, I’ve decided that I’m going to write more in 2010. I will probably not be posting the things I write here. The things I write will probably be at sticksandtomes.com. I know it says that it is a knitting blog, but it won’t be, I promise. (Although there may be some knitting content here and there.)
