Probably those shiftless Wegman's shoppers.

How much space was left on the back of your car with all those magnets, Reed?

None. There's not much to begin with since the spare tire is on the outside. It's a Jeep Liberty.

Did you get a new one? I thought you had one of the big-ass Cherokees.

I'm only comfortable putting up one or two bumper stickers, etc. on the back of my car. I still need to take my Obama sticker off, now that it's over a month after the election. I also have a small Amoeba Music sticker on the opposite corner of my rear window.

I have an Evostik League sticker on the back of my car. What a sad twat.

My wife stuck two 'cat paw-print' stickers to my rear window, from one of those 'stick people family' sets. I almost shat myself and sent a tersely worded text.

I usually buy Yorkshire tea.

I'm mildly obsessed with Yorkshire Red-label; fortunately, the Armenian deli down the street orders it for me, though i get yelled at because i'm the only one who buys it.

Tried Yorkshire Gold once. If i used twice as much, and steeped it for a few extra minutes, i could just about get it to taste like Red.

It's hard out here for a, um, tea-drinker.

I seem to have made it to gold in the Hilton's loyalty scheme because there was a drinks voucher and a jar of jelly beans waiting for me in my room in addition to the usual fizzy water.

Was she messing with you? Because I think such a basic misunderstanding of a partner would indicate a marital crisis.

No, same vehicle for 7 years. 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade.

Jeep didn't mess around when they named that model.

I think I'm going to use a paper bag from the local pharmacy to line our kitchen food waste bin. It's not quite the right shape - too narrow and tall - but it is quite sturdy so it seems a shame to just throw it out.

My family did that my whole childhood. Didn't really work. Then, when I became a garbage man in our town for a summer, I learned that the garbage men hated our house because we didn't use proper trashbags. They couldn't just lift the bags out of the cans and into their rolling container. They had to hoist our cans out of the enclosure my dad had built for them and dump them in. These were the days when the trash service would actually come to find your cans whereever they were on your property. You didn't have to wheel them out front.

Today I just got a letter from the Dutch Tax authorities saying I'm gonna have to re-do my 2009 Dutch tax returns because I used an outdated form.

<sigh>

Yesterday I lashed a 4 metre silver birch tree to the roof of our car and drove home with it (16km). I got some funny looks.

When I got home I found that the road I live on was completely dug up so that we can finally have mains water. So I had to park near the shop, take the tree off and carry it home myself through the mud, and under the amused gaze of the workmen.

It felt mundane at the time, though I concede in the cold light of day it looks quite exotic.

I was able to park at the house in the evening, as they had covered up some of the trench.

I'm intending to go to Sainsbury's this lunchtime to pick up some lunch and the ingredients so that I can make myself sandwiches for lunch for the rest of the week.

I find when I do this I tend to keep it up for a couple of days, then get bored and go back to buying more expensive takeaway lunches. Meanwhile the sandwich ingredients go bad. So it isn't a good economic plan for me.

My sleeping is terrible. I didn't go to sleep last night. Went to the grocery at 3:30 am and started sort of working around 5 am.

Today's lunch is a Sainsbury's £3 value meal deal. Even with an extra packet of crisps on top it's still cheaper than one baguette from EAT. It's a shame it doesn't taste as nice.
