Grapes are the new gold

I went to the store to get some grazing foods for the rest of today and tomorrow. Mr. P wanted Chinese, but I was feeling fruit/cheese/crackers/hummus/crudites/pretzels/perhaps a nacho.
Note how I wrote crudites? It is 2K11 and I am all about Klassy in 2K11.

Anyhow, I got some grapes:

I dare you to get how much I paid for said grapes.



No, really guess.



Pretty close.
TEN DOLLARS and THIRTY SEVEN CENTS.


Fuck me. No wonder in 2K11 I never bothered with WeightWatchers more than 2 days in a row, and all but quit running and gained 20lbs back. Grapes cost some freaking jack.

BUT no worries, I got them anyway and now I can graze on this:


I hope everyone finds 2011 to be the best year yet. I also hope to learn to crochet...which I have dubbed a necessary two-handed hobby that prevents food from being put into mouth while hobbying. I hope to put together a puzzle my school bestie sent me for getting tenure. I hope to get my shit together with respect to healthy, healthy, healthy. I hope to work on my relationships with my adults. I hope to grow the balls to ask for what I want/need at work to be really happy and to feel like the equal that I know that I am in a fairly predominant male office. I hope Mr. P gets the boat of his dreams and we have a divine summer on the water.

Here's to hoping on hopes.

DAMN, girl! Where'd you buy those grapes!?!?!
Sorry things have been kind of sucky lately. Here's hoping the new year is full of brighter days for you. Be happy, my friend!

Fruit can be crazy expensive, and I balk at it sometimes, but I used to think nothing of the cost of junk...so I suck it up and buy the damn delicious expensive fruit.

Oh, and the year I cross-stitched Christmas gifts for something like 17 people, I lost weight. Loving your crochet idea. :)

Here's to an awesome 2011!

I once bought a bag of cherries and had the clerk take them back because I could. not. believe. how much they cost. It was WRONG for them to cost so much. I forget now how much they were---close to $20, I think.

I must say that is a beautiful plate of crudite, though.
