It can piggy back on the other two, but if it's the second, you'll feel kinda crass about it.
Agreed, no way would I go BACK into town for food, but I won't be getting to the playa until Wednesday, so I figured I might as well stop and pick some up for the hungry dust covered people who have already been there for 3 days.

Yumm...berries and antioxidants!

I swear this is the truth: When I was 19 I sold Bibles door-to-door in Norwalk, Ohio with Southwestern Publishing Company of Nashville, TN.

Worst fucking summer of my life.

Sorry, Doc, I have to reimagine it as this sort of absurdist novel of the jewish bible salesman reading Song of Soloman to board housewives. I'm sure that there's a couple of chase scenes in there, but a lot of belly laughs as well.

Bored housewives? No, only when Doc's had his way with them.

Not too bad... I am always disgusted by the price of blueberries and raspberries in the stores but I guess they have to make money somehow. Our prices are retardedly low but our farm is u-pick with little overhead and we're always mobbed. Blueberries at cost. :)

evaporated milk amd beries would be my guess. I'd add powdered sugar or something. But then again I am not a fan of milk. Well unless there are Pecan Shortbread cookies... yum yum yum.

Thats one my fears about BM. That I will wake up and realize its gone by too fast. But you can only do what you can and live in the moments you are given and strive to make the best of them.

I do that, too. And did it as a little kid at scout camp, too. :? I'm trying to break myself of the habit.

Hey, those of you craving milk out there, get the Horizon Farms organic vacuum-sealed milk (usually sold next to juice boxes in supermarkets). It doesn't need to be refrigerated, but it's nice when ice-chilled. It's not half and half, but it's 2%, which is decent for coffee, and it's great on cereal, which is what I actually use it for.

(For actual coffee, I use Starbucks Doubleshots, canned.)

Fuck that.
Have you had the new almond chocolate chip sandies?

Or the cashew sandies?
Or the hazelnut sandies?

Pretty sure I saw Simply Sandies now with pecans!

And walker has shortbread with teenie tiny dark chocolate chips.
Thought it would be disgusting.

They are not.
Can't find any more.
