"I guess I have a lot of problems, so many that I don't have time to go into them all in detail. Suffice it to say I'm anal, obsessive, vain, quick to temper, overly introspective, lazy, judgmental, insecure, and self-righteous. Probably the most annoying thing about me is that I'm hugely opinionated. But I kind of make up for that by always being right."

Day 74: Blood Is Thicker Than Kool Aid

I just got back from shopping, and am pleased to announce that I saved over 44 bucks using my Safeway discount card. Another victory for the consumer! The fact that my boys and I are now forced to eat a bunch of crap we don't really like does little to diminish my satisfaction at having lowered my monthly nut by nearly one whole percent!

Two of the items I found on sale today I didn't even know they still made -- Jello and Kool Aid. I bought the sugarless variety of each in hopes of satisfying my sweet tooth without ballooning up like Mr. Kool Aid himself. I don't know if you've seen the old guy lately, but he's really let himself go. Granted, it's true that he only has one love handle, but my god it's huge!

And speaking of weight, they really should get some physicists to study how these products are made. The packets of Kool Aid and boxes of Jello were so unbelievably light I was worried they were going to float out of the bag on the way home.

Anyway, I can hardly wait to whip these treats up and take a trip back in time, and try to my recapture some of my childhood. I may not have a drunk woman here to abuse me, but I'll try and make do.
