Shopping Hell

I can commiserate fully with this, and I can ever offer a potential (limited) solution.

Shop at a 24-hour store.

My local Asda is open 24hrs, and there is no greater pleasure than meandering round at 1 a.m., stopping randomly, at times for no other reason than you can. Admittedly you do have to negotiate round the shelf stacking staff and some stray cardboard boxes, but that just makes it seem kinda edgy and deviant, like you are sneaking round the shop illicitly.

Or maybe I need to get out more.

Aside: How many other people grew up wanting to play Tig in a closed supermarket?

Friday night.

A work colleague’s 40th, several beers (and the creation of the Crushinator) then onto a house warming party. Home by 2:30 a.m. Hungover already covered, thanks for the cures guys!

Saturday night.

Dinner at brother-in-laws (a superb home cooked Indian meal), several bottles of red wine, back to in-laws house, where we were staying, at 4:45 a.m.


As covered, Dad’s birthday. Home again by 8 p.m. to restore the house to order in time for today.

This morning.

Mild shakes, completely shattered. Stayed up until midnight watching Abyss Live. As Nick says: If there’s one thing the BBC is pretty damn good at, it’s popular science.”
