Beware of the perfect looking produce...

Apparently you can't judge a Book by it's cover any longer. You are looking at a rancid bag of lettuce and a bunch of bananas so mushy inside, they aren't fit for banana Bread. Yea kids, it's all about the preservatives. I can't believe I got hit twice from the same grocery. The bag of Lettuce to the left cost $3.99 and when opened gave off the stench of a bar room toilet. The banana's which even sport an Irish Green stem are complete pulpy brown shite inside.

I grew up in a time where you could look at produce and tell just exactly how long it had been on the shelf. What is happening? The lettuce in that bag is still crunchy for god's sake. If I had a cold or sinus condition I might not have even noticed once the dressing was poured. I am not alone, read THIS article. The poor girl almost died, and never had a clue as to why :
"She had kidney failure. She had to have a tube inserted through her abdomen and she was hooked up to a dialysis machine for 24 hours a day for about 18 days."
ugh...well apart from that today was an incredible day. My new dishwasher..

was installed (I got it from mom for my birthday this past June) I am so exited to have that humongous box out of my hallway, and he removed the old model (which worked well enough but was over 10 years old) The poor old guy fell helping me carry it out to his truck, I hope he's ok. I guess he was about 60, and hit the pavement hard. ugh...
My kids and I went to Best Buy and picked up Clerks (which I saw back in the day but my older son hasn't) Tomorrow we are going to see Clerks II This is one of my favorite movies of all time.
Moving right along, we also picked up a PSP three games, a couple earphones and memory cards. Like I said it was an amazing day... we came home and watched the DVD, which finished right around the time to take them home, I can't wait for tomorrow.
That's it for now, hope y'all had a decent Saturday...

I'm jealous now :) I wish I had a dish washer and in reguard to the bags of "salad"...that stuff always scared me. I have a hard enough time finding stuff at Costco that looks fresh (and you should see the frightening state of their tomatoes sometimes!)

My friend Dan said that Clerks II was good so I hope you guys have fun tomorrow. I'll try and call ya soon. It's been...wierd lately.

All those preprepared foods that are supposed to be fresh smell really funny. And the texture isn't the same. I are a home grown apple recently, and it didn't feel like I was chewing mush. But I'm sure It wouldn't "keep" for six months. either.

As much as it will brand be as a pariah, Chasing Amy is my favorite Kevin Smith movie. I pretty much liked all of them with Jason Lee (though Mallrats was pretty bad).

Glad you had a great day! I had a dishwasher in a box in my kitchen for about 8 months awhile back-it was nice to get it put in finally but I missed the extra "counter" space!

Clerks 2 looks hilarious I can't wait to see it.

Hope you have a great week, Jeff

Oh Clerks II is hilarious! It's crude, crass, racist, sexist, homophobic, blasphemous, and vulgar, but it is absolutely HILARIOUS!

Not to the three peopel that walked out of the theater when I saw it, but for the rest of us, we enjoyed it.

Congratulations on the new dishwasher! Didn't the lettuce have an expiration date?
