Mid-afternoon today. I'm making the dreary slog through the grocery section of our local Meijer supercenter. I've just called enough and decide to head for the checkout lines. I have to wait in the produce section for traffic to clear. As I'm standing there twiddling my thumbs, I check out the cart of the large woman next to me. She's busy scoping out the baked goods. In her cart I spot something I haven't seen for a good fifteen years.
Jell-O Pudding Pops.
Jell-O Pudding Pops! (I can't decide if this sentence needs a "beetches" or not).
No kidding. I had no idea they were back. I haven't seen or heard Bill Cosby on TV, not that I watch TV these days. I found myself intrigued.
Jell-O Pudding Pops.
So I went and found them. Not only were they back, they were ON SALE. Destiny.
I've been housesitting this weekend, and they have cable. Most of the time I don't miss cable, but when I see it I'm reminded of what I'm missing. The good and the bad. And the ugly. Lots and lots of ugly. Like those people that eat 33,000 calories a day. Ew.
I didn't watch anything on Saturday, but decided to veg out today. I caught an afternoon showing of the BG-approved teen flick 10 Things I Hate About You. It has its moments, even if it's hard to believe that the looks-mid-30s Heath Ledger is a high school student. I guess that year in Milwaukee was really hard on his complexion.
Anyway, If I'd known, I would have followed that up with Bring It On. It's dumb, but it's a good dumb. Instead, I went to the grocery store.
This evening, TBS was showing the Lindsay Lohan vehicle Mean Girls. Surprisingly enjoyable. I kept meaning to turn it off and leave, but was not able to do so. Sure it's largely a rehash of Heathers, but that doesn't mean it had to suck. And what else was I going to watch, the NBA all star game? Now, if only I had some peppermint lotion.
Skizzom flozzom wooble Zhhello Puddin Pops! Fozzm libble zoink.
So there you have it. A day in the life. Just not mine. Usually.
