If I am solo, I can drive to CostCo, buy the list I took, and drive home in less than 40 minutes. People who wander through the store touching every item better watch out for me; I drive a pretty high speed down the aisles. I don't like the idea of other people selecting my vegies, so I buy almost all of them at a local farmer's market. CostCo has too much in the way of spoiled vegies. Having them shipped from Central/South America has to play into that. For the life of me, I don't understand why I have to buy a melon from Guatemala, when we grow them right here in California. Huh

As far as the $5 goes, that is a reasonable cost for not having to run around the store, depending on your cash flow.

If we need meat or vegies I will go to the store. This is mostly supplemental groceries. The usual things...tea bags, sugar, some canned goods, paper towels, things I buy so often they are already listed as suggestions.

I still feel pretty crappy and since the fee was waived this time I figured it was a good time to try it out.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Had a nice dinner out with my new coworker.

Need to think of a witty signature.

Annoy? If I say I'm annoyed will you stay? Wink

That would work...

Cash prizes work too. Wink

Makes sense! Save time and effort when you are under the weather.

Buying veggies and melons is a winter thing for us. We grow our own over the summer. Right now, we are growing a pile of corn, tomatoes, green beans, water melons, pumpkins, and a few other things. Our garden has a slightly larger footprint than the house does right now.

Pole dancing sloth just made me smile, even though I was all frowny. Thanks.

RE: Small Things That Make You Smile Thread
Can't edit last post, so...one of my friends from a cohort behind mine in grad school just came up with a great activity for when we discuss the difference between deviance and crime (deviance not necessarily being criminal, but all crimes being technically deviant). Anyhow, her assignment to her summer session students, "Take a Disney character, what can you change about them to make them deviant? Criminal?" The example was Cindarella wearing pants in a time when only dresses were acceptable, for deviance. And for criminal, murdering her stepsisters and stepmother and desecrating their bodies, before marrying the prince....did I mention she said her students escalated things quickly? They escalated quickly.

That said, I think this is a brilliant group activity that should get people thinking and laughing during discussions.

Actually does sound like an interesting activity.
