I haven't encountered that yet...the thought is scary. You know how in love I am with Meijer's...BLECH!

I have an idea...make Martin go. He LOVES the Sims! LOL.


Oh Lisa, that's too funny! Here we've got Albertson's. They've got TV screens all over the place, hanging over the produce bins, the frozen food bins, and at the cash registers. They're motion activated, apparently. Every time someone comes near, the thing starts telling you how to grill something, slice something, or what have you.

It freaked me out the first time I noticed. I was head first in the freezer case looking at chicken breasts, and this booming voice started leturing me on how to fillet a fish! Talk about chills! For the sake of my nerves, I avoid them at all costs.

I've found if you're quick enough, moving with the cat-like precision of a Navy Seal, you can bypass the "Becky Home Ecky" (great expression, Lisa!) video alltogether.


Lisa, what or who are SIMS?


you are very funny. my favorite is taking cans back. there is something satisfying about the crunch of cansmackers. and i can feel good about recycling too, if i can only get my shoes unstuck from the floor.

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)

    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
