They have the milk and eggs as far as they can possibly shelve it from the bread and veggies. Plus they rearrange the store every couple of months. Sometime they just switch everything from one end of the aisle to the other or to the opposite side. Other times like recently they will move things all the way to the opposite side of the store. Having me wander up and down every aisle looking for the pancaking horseradish is a good thing for them no matter how pissed of it makes me.

    Our local grocery store did a re-sort, but their excuse was adding an aisle. So what if doing that put column posts in the middles of some aisles. Love it when the cashiers ask, "did you find everything you were looking for today?" and I get to say "no, but Walmart is on my way home." Especially if the store or front end manager is within earshot.

    Dang it...I was in the lead today. I got the stupid pony question right, but since I didn't know anything about the stupid "my little ass ponies" I had to take time to think about it. Dorko ponies. Stupid dang ponies. Those dang ponies can bite me.

    The first one I remember well, it is called "Fried Green Tomatoes". Great movie. It starred Jessica Tandy, Walter Mathau, Kermit the Frog and Lemmy from Motorhead.

    The second one is called "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls", screenplay by none other than Roger Ebert. It stars Dolly Reed, Cynthia Meyers, Captain Kangaroo, and William Shatner. The best part is where the mock turtle and Dracula go disco dancing on Gilligan's Island..

    Thanks for the quotes Kittie!

    I haven't much on the docket this weekend, which is probably a good thing. Finished my book last night and have the next in the series ready for me when I get home. I got a really sweet project on my desk this morning so, Happy Friday!
    Design is not decoration.

          We have one 7-11 in a town on my commute home. Not particularly in a section of a town where I would willingly get out of the car though.

          Lots of odds and ends to clean up here at work today. July is always slow for us.
          No plans for weekend other than fishing of some kind.
          And maybe finding something to put in the smoker. A Boston Butt perhaps for a pulled pork dinner.

            There's nothing like a Boston Butt, especially when your pork needs a pullin'!
            Thanks Kittie! Happy Weekend Everybody!

              I knew GDF wouldn't disappoint me on that very enticing turn of a phrase.

                  The 7-11 franchisees around here aren't very fond of this promotion, and usually by 8-9 a.m. they "run out of cups" or "haven't got any more syrup" for the rest of the day.

                    They're more like Slurpoops.

                  The kinda day I'm having, I wonder if they have bourbon slurpees . . .
                  Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

                  Last weekend was the 4th, and my birthday- so I have tons of alcohol left over. AND I have no work to do or people's computers to fix. So this should be a good weekend.
