Wanted criminal Amanda Bott and yours truly discovered this most awesome Asian grocery store in Pinellas Park today, big and clean and full of authentic cool everything ! Goose eggs ($7!) and live fish and shrimp and ALL the ramen. Amanda was just grabbing up things, I was not, due to budgetary constraints and whatnot
Due to budgetary constraints, didn’t buy as much as I wanted…that sentence is practically the story of the last two years of my life 🙂
Carebears pillow $1
Panda bear artwork $1
generic probably give me cancer cooking spray 50 cents
Clean & Clear face wash $1
Grape Truvia Crystal Light 50 cents
an absolutely-not leather bealt $1
5 pack Mach3 razors $10
Folgers coffee $2
I didn’t buy any porn, because the govt. provides it for free on the interweb, took some pics though
I have a horrible sweet tooth and I’m broke. When I’m bling blingin’, I enjoy fancy sweet things like tres leches and cronuts and Ben & Jerry’s and pot brownies. Since I ain’t been bout that scrilla in a minute, I luckily stumbled into the Dollar Star on Washington Ave. A sign strategically placed throughout the store says “Florida has ruled that is is legal to sell food that is slightly out of date.” Yes, please!
2 boxes of Little Debbie Cakes, buy 1 get one free, $1.09 (they ain’t stale or nothin’)
2 4-packs of Sunkist 10 (they only have the 10 calories) .49 cents each
1 potato hot dog bun 8-pack (will make my fried bologna (baloney?) sandwiches with, $1
1 Starkist fruit punch candle (cause I love for my pied-a-terre to smell all fruity, like me) .25 cents
Sometimes she puts whatever she’s stealing in her head wrap, but mostly she uses her partner in crime, this banjee girl, to distract the stall owner while she slips stuff all sneaky like
They caught me taking their picture and the old lady got loud and was yelling at me. I should’ve told her to shut the hell up before I snitch and mess her game up, but I was a little bit afraid, she is dressed all in white and might be a Haitian vodou preistess.
Haitian Vodou (/ˈvoʊduː/, French: [vodu], also written as Vaudou; /ˈvoʊduː/ Vodun or Vodoun /ˈvoʊduːn/; and Voodoo /ˈvuːduː/) is a syncretic religion practiced chiefly in Haiti and the Haitian diaspora. Practitioners are called “vodouists” or “servants of the spirits”

Nothing reminds me more of my Alabama roots than a good ole flea market.
My purchases this day:
A Boston Terrier painting for my kitchen, and a print of 2 bugs? that looks all modern and whatnot: $5 and $3
A camouflage dog bed: $4 This was a suspiciously low price, as the bed is almost new. I quickly discovered why, as it became evident that the last dog had peed all up on the bed. Now my car smells like pee, and I am going to have to wash it several times to get all traces of urine smell out, as Cricket will mark (pee) on it to show her dominance if she smells urine. She’s such a boss, when Squeak pees Cricket goes and pees on top of Squeak’s pee, to remind her what time it is in the hood.
Books check ’em out: A nice, new Confederacy of Dunces, Laurell K. Hamilton, Jim Butcher and Anne Rice: $8.75
not shown: cinnamon sugar donuts and caramel kettle corn and nachos…and a large DIET coke
