Snow Day At The Grocery Store (Something To Blog To)

leave a comment »

So I was in a bit of a bind today. The Shittsburgh area has effectively been shut down due to the snow, and I stayed home from work today. Actually, my boss called up and TOLD me to stay home. Now I do my best not to mix work with home life, so that means I could not do any work today even though I really should have. Hey, I don’t have ANY family pictures (not even of the CATS) in my office, and I do not have any work-related materials at home. I do my best to keep the two worlds separate. However, I did do about an hour’s worth of stuff for a project that needed to be done today. Now that the weather has improved I am planning on heading to work Tuesday. The boss told me it was my choice to stay home Tuesday or come into work. The problem is that the roads around the office still aren’t that good and the work parking lot will probably be filled with people illegally parking there due to the roads being blocked up. With several more inches due Tuesday afternoon/night, I really need to get into the office and tie up some loose ends.

Now what did I do today? Nothing really. Because I knew I wasn’t coming into work Sunday night I stayed up late. I did go out grocery shopping today, but that was because I wasn’t sure if I would be able to Tuesday or Wednesday. Besides, I figured if there was any leftover milk, bread and toilet paper to be had I better get what’s left now before it’s ALL gone. So I did.

I wish I could say that the store was packed (it was) and that there was an imaginable amount of chaos. Not really. Just stupid people.

One thing I was surprised at involved the items people decided to get in wake of the GREAT SNOW STORM OF 2010. The lack of moo juice didn’t surprise me. Actually, there wasn’t ANY cow milk available, and people were getting PISSED at this fact. Uhhh, it’s a snow storm. Sheeple are stocking up. This isn’t the least bit surprising. Fortunately, there was still hippie soy milk available. It was on sale and I had several coupons. Sigh. Better than nothing, I guess. Mrs. kkk can have the final gallon of moo juice we have at the house, and I’ll stock up three half-gallon cartons of this shit. At least the three $1.10 coupons offset the higher price.

Oh, here’s what I’m listening to as I’m typing.

Where was I? Oh, yeah. Stuff that people cleared the shelves for in the midst of the GREAT SNOW STORM OF 2010. Milk? Of course. Bread? Not so much. Certain brands were cleaned out, but there was plenty of wheat and white death for everyone. Now what about toilet paper? No clue. I didn’t go down that aisle. In fact, we get our toilet paper at Sam’s Club so I haven’t ventured down that aisle in a long time. Here is a quick recap of the stuff that was purchased en mass.

Potatoes.
Heads of lettuce.
Potato chips.
Frozen pizza.
Taco shells. (Note: They were on sale this week as well. However, non-sale taco shells were depleted as well.)

OK then.

Oh, and in addition to the dumb(m)asses acting SHOCKED that there was no milk available were equally surprised that there were long lines at the check-out lines. Jesus Christ I hate people. One person said, “This is ridiculous.” If there were two cashiers working I would be inclined to agree. But there weren’t. EVERY CHECK-OUT LINE WAS OPEN. There were just a shitload of people in the store. What do you want the manager to do? Give you your groceries for free? Just wait in line, get a magazine off the rack and read it until it’s your turn. Fortunately I was next to the magazine aisle so I picked up a Cat Fancy and got through about half of it until it was my turn. Yes Cat Fancy. It was either that or these stupid vacation/recipe/good housekeeping publications. It is times like this when I REALLY miss the Weekly World News. Then again, it wouldn’t have mattered because the aisle I chose didn’t have magazines.

How the hell am I going to end this entry? I know. I’ll just stop typ…

While “super bowel” inspired me to post today’s results, I’m stoked that there was only one “belly button” search term this time.

Plowing Through This Argument

with one comment

After the Super Bowl Mrs. kkk and I were watching the local news for updates on the great SNOWFALL OF 2010. While we both laughed out loud when we saw the news story of a tree falling in the driveway of the in-laws’ neighbor and had that neighbor on the air, I soon got annoyed at other yinzers (Pittsburgh residents for those not in the know) who were complaining that the roads weren’t adequately plowed.

Jesus Christ. We had more than TWENTY INCHES. You shouldn’t expect spotless roads in conditions like this. One idiot said that she couldn’t get out of her driveway and said that the plowers were more concerned about the buses than her. Well no shit. The best thing to do in a situation like this, in my opinion, is to stay home and let these people do their jobs. The last time this region got a similar amount of snowfall was 1993. If you don’t have a vehicle that isn’t up to driving in off-road conditions then it shouldn’t be out. There’s enough craziness going on already, what with tens of thousands of people without HEAT or ELECTRICITY. I would hope our public works crews wouldn’t give a shit about your ability to get out of your neighborhood. Oftentimes when the better half and I wake up after a snowfall our road isn’t plowed. I would hope our public workers would be more concerned about state roads and interstates before working on the back roads. Apparently some people don’t.

2010 Super Bowl Ad Recap

with 2 comments

So I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or what, but over the last several years (at least) Super Bowl ads have been downright horrid. And this year’s crop of commercials were no exception. It amazes me that companies, even in the HUSSEIN RECESSION~!!!, shell out seven figures for air time and put this shit on.

I could go down the line and comment on how unfunny/unoriginal/etc. many of this year’s ads were, but instead I’m going to try and focus on the positive.

For example, this commercial got a legit “WTF?” moment from me.

I hit the rewind button on the DVR to make sure I was seeing Leno and Letterman together and not as a result of some fancy camerawork/editing. I don’t care all that much for Letterman and I despise Oprah, so me giving mad props to both of them for this effort says quite a bit.

This one has to be the best Snickers ad I’ve seen in quite some time. And when your competition is Patrick Chewing, you don’t have lofty expectations to surpass. Nevertheless, it had Betty White talking smack.

OK, I have to admit. This one was cute.

The other commercials related to this campaign were so-so, but this one did make me laugh as well albeit for different reasons.

If you are the type of person who gets Denny’s Grand Slams for your birthday, you better enjoy them because you aren’t going to get that many birthdays left.

I didn’t care at all for this commercial until the part with Stevie Wonder, which gave me a chuckle.

I just showed you the Super Bowl ads I liked/thought were OK. I even included “moments” in ads I thought were otherwise bleh. Hell, there was a moment late in the third quarter when I turned to the better half and said, “I’m starting to miss the four-hour erection ads.” But then came the ad of the night, which almost made up for the crap I had previously watched.

AWESOME.

Sad thing is this whole “Green Police” will become a reality sooner than later.
