Hello World!

Don't you hate it when you go to the supermarket and instead of buying the things you're supposed to buy, you get totally unnecessary stuff instead?

Today I trudged up the shopping centre, and instead of buying practical items like cheese and salad dressing I came home with BBQ chips and tortilla wraps. Must write lists in future.
