Ketchup… Catsup… Ketchup… Catsup…

Posted on

Spent most of this morning shopping by myself for the first time in ages. Not the usual “white and brown bread, milk, butter in the Spar” jobbie but a full weekly shop. On my own. Without any backup. Hmmm…

I coped ok but there were times when I felt like Mr Burns in The Simpsons standing forlornly in the middle of an aisle pondering the ketchup and catsup… Seriously, how am I supposed to find the Flora probiotic drinks in amongst the 400 other type of healthy, yoghurty things…? Just what “2 in 1 shampoo” was I supposed to get?? I spent ten minutes doing comparison studies of prices… Just look at all the bloody cooking oils!!!!!

There is no Glensink low-fat organic yoghurt… Oh wait, there it is three shelves below and just where IS the Ballymaloe relish… With the cooking stuff? Nope. The Jams? Nope… Arse.

All I was short of was asking where the “Rick-O’s” were…

You might think this is a bit pathetic but if you’re used to someone else doing the weekly shop in the house then try it for yourself just once and see how much incorrect crap you come home with… My one great discovery of the day was the composition of Billy roll. The legendary smiling sandwich filler for young folk everywhere is… Wait for it…

36% turkey, 26% pork. That leaves a disturbing 38% unaccounted for. What is it?!?!?!?! Chinese newspaper? Wow… Deng Xoaiping died…

Suggestions to the usual place… 🙂

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!|
