How close are you to the nearest grocery store? I picture you being miles away.

Growing up, we lived in a number of places, way out in the country. Always a good eight miles from the grocery store. We probably went grocery shopping once a week. In one place we lived, we also lacked a washer and dryer. I remember the laundromat was next door to the grocery store. We'd go grocery shopping while doing our laundry...I'd get a pack of baseball or football cards and come back and peruse all the statistics on the back until the laundry was done. Good times.

it's a 6 mile drive into town.  we're about 3 miles down a small, winding country road and a third of a mile down a gravel road so it can feel isolated but in reality we're not that far out.  i drive into civilization every day for work so i potentially could shop ever day but i'd much rather stock up and get it over with once a week.

i feel this does a lot to explain your current career... ;D

9/20 Giant

Wings-Band on the Run

Don't worry, I wasn't grocery shopping on company time. My wife tells me I should do housework and grocery shopping during telework time, but I say no way. I just stopped and bought groceries on the way home from the doctor. Totally legit.

I agree, to a degree. Was only in the store for two songs and can't even remember the other one. I would have skipped posting it but didn't want y'all to think I was slacking on the shopping front.

Wonderful Christmastime makes me want to wage war on Christmas!
Technically not a wings song, I always thought it was because of the video
Although the members of Wings are not on the recording, they do appear in the promotional music video

it is estimated that McCartney makes $400,000 a year from this song, which puts its cumulative earnings at a little over $15 million

I am always amazed that playlists that are automatically created by AI continue to include this song because it's a McCartney song with no credence paid to the time of year.  It's fucking not even November and I don't need to hear that song!

It's a simple script to save humanity.

My wife asked me to pick some stuff up on the way home from work Friday night, and of course I happily obliged, awaiting with wonder as to what tunes Giant had in store for me.

Alas, the first song I couldn't decipher. So the next and last song was the winner. Though not her best shot, it may have been her biggest hit.

Benatar-Love is a Battle Field
Fun Fact, Pat Benatar grew up in Lindenhurst Long Island NY (graduated 71)
birth last name... Andrzejewski  (kinda see why she decided to keep her ex husbands last name)
She never ever admits being from there...always said NY or NYC
(although I did just find out she did something with the lindenhurst choir in 2008)

Momma Sidehatch had her in homeroom when she was pregnant with baby Sidehatch
