You're so polite, indeed....

I love grocery shopping. Normally. I like grocery shopping late at night or really early in the morning. Any other time? When there are a good bit of people or a lot of people in there shopping too? I don't like it so much. I end up wanting to grab a bunch of grapes and sitting them up in the front of the shopping cart. Then whenever someone is being rude, I want to run them down with my shopping cart and then pelt them with grapes as I dance by with my shopping cart giggling gleefully. Or possibly I'll be laughing maniacally. ;) Seriously. There's no reason for people to be so fucking rude. Everyone has stressful days. Everyone has bad days. Everyone wakes up on the wrong side of the bed now and then. Everyone has to do something they hate but can't avoid because it's necessary; which for some is grocery shopping. No need to be a pain in the ass, rude motherfucker or outright snotty bitch to other random people just trying to buy their groceries as well. I know, some people are just bitches and rude snotty fuckheads by nature. They can't help it, that's the way they are, blah blah blah. So yeah, if you're ever grocery shopping one day and some chick with big boobs rams you with her shopping cart and then pelts you with grapes well laughing maniacally.... you'll know who it was and you won't have to wonder why. Granted, it'll probably put that person in a worse mood but oh well... chill the fuck out and stop taking out your moods and emotions on random people.

I'm still not done with the Laurell K. Hamilton book. I got "Skin Trade" shortly after it came out but every single time I sit down to read some, something happens. Then I have to put the book down and do other stuff. Then I forget and then remember later. Then I pick it up to read. Then the power goes out. Fuck man. Then I pick it up again, then it's time to head out because I forgot we were going to a birthday dinner because I was more concerned with my book and finding out if some sack of shit gets his throat torn out or now. Then I think about reading again but then my Nintendo DS sends out it's mind control vibes and I pick it up instead. Then I end up playing that for an hour or two because it's addicting and soul sucking and I can't stop easily once I start. Then I think about the book again and I pick it up. I'm reading along and all of the sudden, my eyelids are drooping low and pretty much refusing to stay open. What's that? Sleep you say? Now I've read 3 pages and I'm pushing to get at least one chapter done so I force my eyes open and press on. I wake up a little while later with the book sitting in the floor, my page lost and me giving up so I can go back to sleep for real this time. I'm dying to flippin' finish it, lol. I only have 82 pages left to go though so my goal is to have it finished before I go to bed tonight. Wish me luck! Lol.

Little known fact about my musical tastes? I LOVE the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I don't mention them a lot for whatever reason, I don't know why honestly. So so many of their songs just speak to me in a lot of ways. I can relate to a lot of the lyrics and I like how they have a sound all their own. Though, I used to not like them and then I started doing drugs and they were good music to sit and listen to when you're sick of listening to Sublime and want something chill to listen to, lol. I stopped doing drugs and still kept liking their music though. Anyway, here are two of my favorite songs by them.

Happy Monday!

Of the many things I am drawn to about you is the honesty of your writing, your musings and this...we share that music-soul connection piece baby.

I have a long, bumpy storied love affair with Kiedis and the gang. Bar none, they are one of my favs too. And it is funny, all the music / hnt shit I put up...never done one to one of their songs. Dunno, they are too special and in a class all their own.

Love this!

Can I join you with the pelting grapes at the rude shoppers????? I can't stand busy grocery stores because of the "general public"... LOL... I happened to go to the Super Walmart the other night (more like early morning - after Midnight) and found it to be an absolutely fantastic time to shop - no lines, no people, just stockers in the aisles and all chatting and happy... Great taste in music by the way :D

Have you seen the literal video on YouTube for RHCP's "Under the Bridge." I love it -- but it totally suits my sense of humor.

Laurel K. Hamilton -- I'm really struggling with her. I'm on my third Anita Blake book. The first one (early in the series) was ok. The one I just finished (Danse Macabre) was full of 4-chapter long sex scenes and weird stuff I didn't understand. Guess that's what I get for skipping around in the series.

I read "Hard Candy" a few months ago, and I just wasn't impressed. But because I love the Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris, I decided to give Anita Blake a shot. I'm still not sure I'm sold.

Love your blog!

bitching about shopping, bitching about your latest book, and listening to the Red Hot Peppers......each day, I get a better and better picture of your personality in my mind....(not to mention the added bonus of the adult toy reviews.....wooooo)

Two lanes open for 50 million other ppl there. Eeep!

I work in what you Americans so quaintly call 'the grocery store' and I witness this kind of rudeness all the time, and the total lack of respect that people have for each other (and for the people who work there - a man actually tutted at me the other day, another swore at me in Polish). But it is saved by all the lovely little kids who smile sweetly and want to 'help' their parents.

The ChiliPeppers Rock! I wonder who they are getting on drums as Chad Smith is with Chickenfoot now.

I can so relate to your shopping experiences....Sometimes I wish I could just go in there with a high caliber weapon. Not to rob the place but to just take out those that get in my way.
