It's July and it's some weird combination of hot and humid and rain either looming or half-heartedly happening around these parts right now, so it makes perfect sense that I'd post a video from Snowmageddon 2010, specifically the part where I ventured out between our two mother storms to try to buy groceries.
This clip is embarrassing to me. I look like a person who has been trapped inside for two weeks and yet somehow is not rested, although I had nothing but time to sleep for lo those many days (true.) My roots, oh, how they haunt me, as ever. (Always true.) I hate watching myself on video (also true.) But when Stimey tells me to do something, I listen. And what she told me to do, after she posted a Facebook mini-rant about grocery shopping, was to tell me to post mine. So I'm doing it, embarrassment be damned.
Bring it, 42. KEEP BRINGING IT. I am IN YOUR FACE.
I have written about grocery shopping before, in a land that time forgot there I would randomly insert major grocery chain logos into my paragraphs for...effect? When I would write about not being able to find marshmallows in a way that seems funnier to me now than some of the stuff I write wherein I'm trying to be funny? (I don't want to talk about it.) (Sarah! The first post is called Why I Love Safeway Better Than Giant! Do not tell me our friendship wasn't pre-ordained.) (I don't think you'd tell me that anyway, whatever, that just sounded good.)
But I haven't written about grocery shopping, or shopping, or anything much of anything, here in a long time. Now I just post old videos where I'm talking about it. Who says the medium -- or I -- haven't evolved?
Thanks, I think, to Schmutzie, as ever and pretty much daily, for the inspiration.
