When shopping attacks!

Posted 15 June 2004

I'm not allowed to eat in the dining halls during senior week. Not without paying $8.50 per meal. Naturally. So over the weekend I ordered two pizzas from Papa Romeo's, one for Saturday, and one for Sunday. Of course, Monday I had some serious problems, not the least of which was "what am I going to eat for the next week before Plex opens?" I tried going to get food on Sunday, but as soon as I walked into the store I got skeered. So I bought some razors and left. Whew It turns out, though, that razors don't fit neatly into the food pyramid [image]. Crumb!

Luckily, Sharon Lee agreed to go shopping with me, so today we went to Jewel and bought stuff. And by stuff I mean cereal and sandwich materials. Always thinking ahead, I also purchased apples to help ward off dentists and scurvy.

But don't be confused. I still don't like shopping.
