Grocery Extravaganza

We spent over a hundred dollars at the grocery store last night, and we didn't even buy anything. Seriously, stupid stuff like milk and bread and eggs and saline solution. Nothing you could construct a meal around, like meat. We're so lame. The longer I'm married (3 years now!) the more I appreciate my mom. I swear, she was a professional meal planner and chef. She she a rotating schedule so that we all got our favorites every once in a while, but she'd throw new stuff into the mix, too. She'd plan out every single meal for the entire week in advance, then do inventory to see what she needed to buy. Her grocery lists were in order - not alphabetical, but based off of the layout of the aisles. And dinner was always on the table between 5:30 and 6:30..depending on when my dad was getting home from work. I feel like a failure in comparison. I can't even plan a single meal when I'm standing in the grocery store. Case in point - last night we bought a roasted chicken for dinner. The ones that you can't help but wonder if they we roasted in the morning, and they've been sweating inside of their plastic containers under the hot lamps ever since. Ew. I mean, it was delicious, but I swear the thing was green.

And this is a very random sidenote, but this is about the funniest thing I've seen in a very long time.

And click on the newest link on the right panel - you upload a picture of yourself and it tells you what celebrity you look the most like. At first I thought it would be a joke, right, like it would only say "Danny DeVito" or something like that, but it actually tries to match you based off of your facial features. It entertained me for an hour or so the other night, I plugged in about every picture on my hard drive.

I'm off to figure out what's for lunch...


  1. You should put up the celebrity picture of yourself on the blog. I want to see who you look like. Though I already know.

  2. Actually, it wasn't any of the people anyone has ever mentioned to me. You can cycle through several matches for each picture, and my most common ones were Heidi Klum (twice), Jennifer Love (twice), and Rebecca Romjin (twice). And Michael Moore, only once though. Not even kidding. I think it mostly just goes off of the face shape. I'm not helping myself here. But really, like if your face is turned slightly to the right, it will only match you with people who are turned slightly to the right in their picture.

  3. That's dumb. I'm afraid mine will tell me I look like Woopi Goldberg.
