» I guess I should post before the month is over. Don’t Eat Off The Sidewalk!

I guess I should post before the month is over.

I have no real excuse for not writing. Except that every time I thought that I should write an entry, I would think about all of the things I would have to talk about. And before I could type a single word, this novel of a blog post had formed in my head. And then I would curl into a ball and cry. So i’ve decided to stick one toe in.

Sometimes when I can’t sleep all night, I decide to go to the grocery store in the morning. I got out some cookbooks that haven’t seen much use, wrote down some recipe names along with the page number and ingredients I would need for the store*, and headed off. Things got a little fuzzy at this point. I came home and unloaded the groceries and promptly fell asleep.

I do some weird things when I shop after being awake for 20 or so hours. I awoke to find three dozen discounted bananas on my table, and three cartons of discounted Silk snog in the fridge. Now, I like bananas. And I like snog. But I am one person and that’s a damn lot of both! I’ve been taking pictures of my adventures in the banana diet. Those will come later.

Whew. Baby steps. Anyway, here is a picture of the beez after I gave her a ridiculously bad haircut. But I think she looks cute as hell so who cares if she has stray hairs and crooked lines.

*And then I lost or threw away the list and can’t remember half of the recipes that I bought stuff for.

P.S. Issue #2 is currently sold out until I feel like dealing with Kinkos. That means i’ve sold almost 1,000 zines since last summer. Fucking nuts, dude.

    Awwww, at least it’s your dog you do that to. I give our cat haircuts. In my defense though, she needs it, otherwise she gets rear-end passengers along with nasty dreadlocks on her back.

    That dog is freakin cute. I just want to put her in my pocket.

    Daaamn, that is a cute dog! My grocery shopping adventures are always random & trying.

    Awww she’s adorable. Can’t wait to see what you’re going to do with those masses of banana’s (crud, 3 dozen?!?!?)

  • erica

    i’m a sucker for cute doggie pictures. Congratulations on selling 1,000 copies of your Zine in YOUR FIRST YEAR of writing!!! nothing short of remarkable.

    My grocery shopping almost always includes coming home with one or more truly random item which seemed like a good idea for reasons which I later cannot remember…. A frequent refrain from the spouse: “And WHAT are you going to do with this?” I have been making an effort to dig through the odd bottles and jars and find things to do with them!

    Your puppy is adorable. Congratulations on your #2 zine. If you do decide to deal with Kinko’s again and could, I would really like a copy of #1. I know I know, but I got on the boat late.

    wow the dog is so little and so cute.

    One of my favourite meals/snacks/whatever is a ‘banana milkshake’ – soy milk, banana, a little vanilla extract, and if the bananas aren’t sweetly ripe I’ll add a little maple syrup. Put it in the blender and whizz! What is extra nice though, is if you buy your bananas, and cut them up and freeze them, so you can just put frozen chunks in the recipe and you get a nice cool, creamy drink. So maybe you can try freezing some of your excess bananas! :)

    Cute dog, BTW. :-)

    I would be very interested in purchasing copies of both issue #1 and #2, so if you decide to make more copies of #2, please make some of #1, as well! Thanks!

    Cute dog, and holy bejeebus, what will you do with so many bananas? Can’t wait to see.

    Woah a THOUSAND zines sold? That’s awesome.

    When I go grocery shopping on my own I buy all these fun and coll things, but whenever Alex is with me he stops me from going crazy. Who cares about being sensible really?

    I actually did go on a banana diet once when I was 12 or so and convinced I needed to lose weight. I couldn’t eat bananas for a year after that. Eew. I’m sure your banana diet is a lot more interesting than that, mine was just raw bananas and a glass of milk every now and then.

    hahaha–sounds like my grocery trips. I would think you could peel and chop the bananas, put in a freezer bag and freeze them. All set for future smoothies. Now the snog…ice cube trays of snog? Snog cubes? Don’t know how thawed soy milk would be. Keep us informed ;)
