grocery shopping continues to be a wild and dramatic experience.
this time I:
- discovered that i can fit a lot of groceries into my panniers and backpack and thus do the shopping on my bike (would have been a disaster if i couldn’t, so i’m glad that worked out)
- was unable to remember my pin. before i left i knew i didn’t know which one it was but for some reason didn’t put any cash in my wallet and idk what i was thinking. probably along the lines of ‘well there’s only four things it could be, i’m sure i’ll get it ONE of those times’ and it was the fourth try, OF COURSE. at least now i know what it is. last time this happened i’d just filled my car up with petrol and i just panicked and the dude just swiped it because of that thing that you can do where you don’t need your pin so it was ok but GOD TERRIFYING
i’m still the college first-timer of the grocery gauntlet, that is me, that was in fact pretty much word for word one of the things i muttered to myself as i stood trying to determine which jar of tomato paste to buy. i’m not sure how many first times i will get before i stop being that but hopefully it will happen eventually (that’s how life works right???)
I keep thinking about the dream I had last night which was pretty silly; I caught the train to Chadstone (I think it was Chadstone; I’m still in the subconscious mindset that Chadstone is really far away even though its not anymore) but I had to walk a way to get to the shops from the train station and everything looked like Vegas, and then when I made it i didn’t even have an objective, I just went for no reason, so I was wandering around and I went past this shop which was basically just giving people money when they were bereaved? Or something? And as I went past the lady at the counter handed me all this money, and I hadn’t paid any attention to what the shop was when I went past so I didn’t know what it was for but it was a lot of money and I was in a very ‘ooh free money, I won’t question this at all’ mood and happily took it. I was going to walk off with it but then this other lady who was ACTUALLY being served at the time, and who the money was ACTUALLY for, you know, SPOKE UP because I’d just taken all her bereavement money? I’m not sure how the woman at the counter mistook me for her because we looked totally different and they had been talking about everything before I walked past, it was an odd mistake to make. Anyway I gave the money back, it was very disappointing, and then the bereaved lady kept following me around because she was under the impression that the mistake had been because I had lost someone myself and had been dealing with the shop lady earlier in the day. I’m not sure how that impression formed but then I was too embarrassed to correct her, so I had to keep going along with it and lying about losing someone, and she kept wanting to talk about it and commiserate together because idk she was grieving someone and really wanted to talk to someone who was in the same place. But I wasn’t and then I think the rest of the dream was just me trying to get away from her without being rude.
Also I don’t know why I keep having dreams about going to Chadstone. I’ve had two or three now, each with a lot of focus on my transport difficulties (the mode of transport changes each time but has never, i think, been anything close to reality) and no actual objective for when I get there.
this is some airbending shit right here
what just happened
PFFFFFFFFF this is from Shaolin Soccer, a Stephen Chow movie. It’s freaking GREAT, I highly recommend this movie.
oh GOOD! thank you for your wisdom, i was highly skeptical about the reality of this
i take it as a point of pride that my comic turns up before the other one with the same title on google. hahahahahahha TAKE THAT, YOU OLDER COMIC
there can be only one
constantly tempted to type out my password list and put it on my drive so i can remember what my passwords are when i’m not at home, but that just seems like SUCH A BAD IDEA IN TERMS OF SECURITY so i guess i’ll keep grappling with my inability to remember them all. esp because google isn’t really up for accountability when i’m not giving them money to safeguard my stuff so.
I appreciate diagrams that contain blank areas and question marks
