I can't resist....

Kroger had a super awesome mega sale this week... so super awesome in fact, that I just can't resist showing off what I got.  Especially because its nearly all organic!

Thanks to coupons and the (super awesome) mega sale, for a mere $12.84 we purchased all of the above, plus a fourth three-pack of Horizon milk singles that I had already raided for my dear husband's lunch the next day.  

That stuff normally would have cost $63.80.  Our savings rate?  Nearly 80%.  Basically, we paid for the bag of coffee, and the rest was free.  I wish eating organic was always this easy...

Dead brain.

My brain is tired.  Possibly dead.  Death from grad school overload.

Also, I'm TOTALLY NOT OK with how humid and warm it is here in Atlanta right now.  C'mon, it's the end of October.  Having to use the air conditioner is just not cool. 

Pun intended. 

Not really, but I'll pretend.

Help! My tomato plant is swallowing my balcony!!

My balcony gardening escapades this year have been far more ambitious then even my actual-gardening attempts last year.

Our balcony garden consists of:

  • 4 cherry tomato plants
  • 4 green pepper plants
  • 2 bins of potatoes (fingerling potatoes & regular)
  • 1 bin of onions
  • 1 bin of carrots

Two of our tomato plants have decided that in order to lead full and satisfying lives, they must conquer the whole territory of the balcony.  So far they're making excellent progress too.

If you hear screaming coming from my vacinity, its because they've suddenly developed consciousness and are trying to eat me.

The moral of this gardening story?  When planning a container garden on a balcony, keep in mind that buying "indeterminate" tomato seeds might just result in six feet or more of tomato plant.  Just... you know... FYI.  ;P

The Auditory Similarities of Stonyfield Yogurt and Fancy Feast Appetizers: Un-Scientific Observations

From the reactions of my cats, I'm guessing that Stonyfield Yogurt and Fancy Feast cat Appetizers make nearly an identical sound while being opened. This is sad for my cats, since I eat a lot of yogurt.

Note Firefly's still-palpable disappointment moments later. (and least PETA come after me, rest assured that she got treats in exchange for posing for this photo.)
