Food 4 Less may have cheaper prices...

...but they don't have nearly the selection that I'm looking for.
I don't shop there too often, so I don't really know the layout of the store; and as it was almost midnight, all the stockers were scurrying about trying to put everything in its place. I never did find the anchovies. But they aren't that important right now, I don't have anything to put them on, and I probably won't make more stew until Saturday. So I have plenty of time for that. But I couldn't find a lot of the things that I like to eat... like my pastas. Or, the stuff that they do have is all family size. I'm one person. Why do I need the 24 case of beer when a six-pack will last me a little less than a month? Well, beer and soda are a different story, they don't have to be in the refrigerator the entire time. But I know I don't need a tub of peanut butter. My last jar of PB was a little one, and it still went bad; but that may have something to do with sitting out in the sun at Burning Man one day (whoops).
But it was cheaper... $36 instead of about $50 or $60 for a 3/4 full cart of stuff...and their carts are bigger, too. hmmm
Will have to think about this. Save money but not have nearly the selection or bigger selection, bigger price?
I've got it! I'll go to F4L first, get all the stuff that I'm not picky about, then go to S-Mart and get all the stuff that I am!
Gosh, do I ever feel better.

I got a lot of the house cleaned today. I can at least walk through it without stumbling over bags of empty soda cans.
As for making the bread...I didn't feel like it today. And pyrophilia called me and invited me over for some curry.
So I didn't get to finish cleaning hose, and even if I had been in the mood to make bread, I don't think it would've happened today.

Just replied to a statement by guppygrrl who was talking about a house that had caught fire just a couple of houses down from her.
I talked about Patches' incident with the fire department when my apartment complex caught fire a couple of Februaries ago.
I wasn't in the building, so the fire department had to break into my side as well (even though the fire was pretty much contained in the apartment next to mine).
They pulled out Patches, set her down at the bottom of the stairs, wherein she ran back up and they had to go catch her again. You see, Patches is an indoor kitty who is skittish. She hates it outside, and she doesn't like other people (except pyrophilia). So they brought her out a second time, this time one of the firemen had to just hold her until I got there (I was across the street. I didn't even know they had found her until someone came up to me and said they had my kitty.)
So it's embarassing enough that they had to rescue my kitty TWICE, but it also got recorded by the local TV news cameras!
Somehow, CNN also got ahold of it and ran it on national TV!
I still have the news clip on tape.
Maybe, someday, when I have the ability to record on the computer stuff from VCR tape, I'll upload it, or something weird like that.

So what do I do when insomnia hits me (that would be every night)?
I sit at the computer playing Spider Solitaire.
