"A Loaf Of Bread, A Container Of Milk And A Stick Of Buttah"

Why is it that when Supreme Leader gives me a shopping list of more than two items I will inevitably have to call her to remind me what the hell I was sent out for in the first place yet 30+ years on I have no problems recalling this list?

I went along with Liam's class to the pumpkin patch yesterday. Gale force winds, rain like icy daggers, thigh deep mud and twenty-two five year olds who've picked pumpkins far too big for them to carry. Good times. Good times.


"Who cleans up the pineapple juice spilt on my floor?" Never liked Sponge Bob.

Not random enough?


If Roger Moore carrying a light sabre isn't random enough for you then I'm sorry, I can't help you. Maybe The Un-Mom can.

  2. Remember in the 70s there were maybe a dozen cereals & most had "Sugar" in their names? Now there are a hundred even at the tiniest grocery.

    Thanks for reminding me to get bread...and juice. Can't stand Sponge Bob - love the image

  3. Ah, the days of going to the supermarket for your mom before you reached your 6th birthday! Those were good times.

  4. I love you. I really, really love you. A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a stick of buttah. Just this morning, I sang my husband the song about the Alligator King with 7 sons, who needed cheering up. He remembered it! ;-) A toast to the 70s sesame st generation!!!

  5. Wow...you can find anything on youtube! I hate sponge bob too. He's such an asshole.

  6. Roger Moore could have used a light saber. It may have made him a more interesting James Bond. Can you tell he wasn't my favorite?

  7. Roger, the Force is not so strong. But I imagine your martinis are.

    Thanks for the trip down Sesame Street memory lane.

    Great randomness.

  8. That is completely NOT the way I remembered that Sesame Street clip. I remember one where the kid goes to the store, and gets distracted along the way by a fire engine and other things, and he replaces the items on the list with the things he sees. Now I have to go find that one. Curse you, Captain Dumbass!

  9. What strange alignment would have Roger Moore holding a light saber? I posit that it was a badly chosen publicity shot for Moonraker.

    P.S. At this point, my grocery store memory is so pathetic that my wife won't even let me do the food shopping anymore. (Heh heh. Mission accomplished.)

  10. Love that clip-it's well known in my family, as is the Alligator King mentioned by Michaela.

    I hope you dressed for the weather on your pumpkin lugging trip.

  11. Captain? You've got "random" on lock, baby. Total awesome randomness.

  13. How can you not like Spongebob? I might have to disown you a bit.

  14. the pumpkin patch sounds like magic...lol

  15. Maybe you could remember the lists better if you just memorize what could be made with the ingredients. This time, think - milkwiches.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, that's pretty random. He looks good with the sabre, though. I sense a movie mashup in the works.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ah, the 70's. Good times.
    And it doesn't get any better than Lightsaber Bond. Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Truth: Roger Moore is my favorite Bond.

  19. Funnily enough I've just been shopping and my Wife and Daughter were absolutely no help at all.

  20. The title of this is great. Had me flashbacking to "Make the first place you passed, the last"

  21. AnotHer Tuesday oF RanDom AwesoMeness!!
    Random capitalizations to go with the post.

    I'm glad you survived the pumpkin patch - that sounded pretty sketchy.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Roger Moore always did have a large lightsaber.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It is because of things like sesame street, we can't remember anything ... our brains are full of useless things...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Spongebob is the 4th horseman of the apocalypse. I'm just sayin'.

    Love 007 with a light saber, you can't get more random than that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I bet that shot that got Roger Octopussy.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Um, you've got randomness down perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  27. you bring true randomness to us all....I can only dream of being so damn random. I am going ot have to stop trying so hard....buttah...I need me some buttah...thanks for the reminder

  29. Much like your not remembering a grocery list, my husband has a rule that I can not give him more than one thing to carry at a time. I've tested this theory with disastrous results!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Did YOU get to see afterbirth hanging out of a cow's vagina? Then I win for the Pumpkin Patch Contest story.


    hands down.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I remember that Sesame Street video like it was yesterday! Thanks for the sweet reminder.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I LOVE that clip of Sesame Street! But now a days, I just text the list over to Almost Hubby... at this point he knows the brands, so it takes all the "fun" out of phone tag. -J

    ReplyDelete
  33. I remember those trips to the pumpkin patch. fun times!

    ReplyDelete
  34. My dad adores Bond. This picture will make him stumble.. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  35. THANK YOU! I was wondering where that came from! It is always in my head pushing out my real list whilst at the store!

    ReplyDelete
  36. SpongeBob as a mop. Hilarious.

    ReplyDelete
  37. HA! I remember that video! Sent my husband to the store once to get strawberries and beef. He came back with $30 worth of strawberries and $100 worth of Kobe beef.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh jeez... I haven't seen that Sesame Street bit in 25 years! Thanks for making me feel old!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh man, I know the pumpkin patch was a nightmare lol & Roger Moore carrying a light saber? That just rocks.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Cheers to the 70s Sesame Street generation.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Not only does Roger Moore have a light saber, it also looks like he has a spray tan. Pretty progressive for back in the day.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Random enough for me. I still think you are the king of random. Roger Moore with a light saber just makes too much sense to not happen. I'm going to talk to some people about this.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I cannot go to the store to get more than two items without coming home with everything else BUT those two items. And when I read "buttah" I hear Wolowitz's mother from The Big Bang Theory.

    ReplyDelete
  44. These are the questions that perplex us all. Only you are brave enough to ask them.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Boy that was pretty random. But I take issue with you disparaging my Sponge Bob. That boy rocks it. Especially when he's using "Sentence Enhancers." Boy after my own heart, pineapple juice or no.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I remember that list too! High five! And great randomness-ness!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh, I just *love* her. What a great walk! I'm totally walking to work like that today. Chanting, naturally, "a loaf of bread . . . "

  48. Today is pumpkin patch day at Chick's school. I wisely sent her father to go with her.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Roger Moore with a light saber- simply awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  50. The List is entrenched in long-term storage so deeply that I fear, in my future dementia (the one I'm bound to have; such is my luck), The List will be one of the last things I'm still able to mutter. And no one, no one is the whole nursing home will understand. Promise you'll visit.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love, love, love that Sesame Street clip. I've never forgotten that one either.

    And Roger Moore with light-saber? Brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh wow. I haven't seen that clip in FOREVER!
    I'm wondering if my mother would have sent me to the store at that age, even if it was down the block. And I am guessing no way in hell... :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Damn, I guess I'll have to return the Sponge
    Bob Jammie I got you for Christmas!

    I remember that Sesame Street list to and I loved the Alligator Song, it kept you guys
    quiet for a brief moment.

    Hope Liam got the biggest, baddest pumpkin!

  54. No love for SpongeBob? Patrick and Squidward are my favorite. Though I'm partial to Plankton as well. Okay, I adore all of Bikini Bottom. There, I said it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. This was my FAVORITE random post yet!
    I think it was the Roger Moore thing.

    ReplyDelete
  56. More random is if you asked Roger Moore to dance to that Krishna influenced ballad and jig mix.

Come on, sailor. I love you long time.
