Shopping

I just went to the supermarket (Price Chopper) for the second time this week. I've come to 2 conclusions:
1) The people who work during the week are all mutants.
2) The weekends are too busy and annoying, especially if there is a screw up at the register and you've got 4 80 year old women waiting in line behind you to buy prune juice and ciggarettes.

I'm not sure which time I prefer at the store. During the week is quick and easy, but there is the mutant factor to deal with. On the weekends, the workers are all human, but there are lots of old people roaming the aisles. (Aisle is a fucked up word.)

In other news, I've got butterflies in my stomach. Possibly excitement for a long overdue phone date with an old friend. Possibly nervous about a going away party with co-workers that I've never been extremely close with. Possibly due to the idea of a return trip to Montreal and the people or final that await me there.

Every once in a while I try to think of things that I want for Christmas, but most of them I've bought for myself. I built myself a new computer. I bought more RAM and a new keyboard/mouse set for said computer. I bought myself a camera and all the things needed for it. There are (as always) movies that I want, but the combintation of Jim owning a DVD burner and me not wanting to ask for movies causes problems. I do still want a DVD burner for my computer, but that can get a bit pricey. (The one I've been looking at is actually about 70-80 bucks.)

I guess I've sort of gotten out of the habit of asking for Christmas presents, so I don't really know what to ask for. I just assume I'll get cash from certain people, and random gifts from other people here and there. Part of me kinda wants a Waterman fountain pen, but I'm not really sure why, or what I'd do with it. I dunno. I don't really want to think about it any more. It gets me annoyed.

I'm done with this post.
