don't grocery shop on an empty stomach...

that whole saying about not going grocery shopping on an empty stomach, should also be extended to online shopping. for example, don't decide to look for your favorite food items that are not available on the east coast, when all you've eaten all day is a giant tub of gummy bears.

i ALMOST purchased 6 giant bags of tim's cascade jalapeno chips and a 2 pound loaf of tillamook medium cheddar cheese, for the combined total of $40 with shipping. come on dactyl, you're not THAT ridiculous.

i'm still really wanting the chips and the cheese though, people. i'm not going to lie.

I wonder how much it would cost me to ship you some cheese? hmmmmmm...

you're probably going to take umbrage to this, but... what's the big deal about Tillamook cheese? i had it when i was out in Olympia, and it was definitely good, but it wasn't significantly better than higher end, East Coast regional cheese. Have you had Vermont cheddar here? I actually find it sharper than my recollection of Tillamook, and I love a sharp cheddar. We should go cheese tasting/shopping together.... matter of fact, why HAVEN'T we done that yet???

arija... i don't do the sharp cheddar. and i grew up on tillamook medium, hence my love for it.

but good point... why haven't we done cheese/wine tasting etc?

brooke - you are adorable, but i think the cheese would water by the time the mailman delivered it. so cute. :)
