Tim Minchin – Prejudice

Up yours Safeway

I recently moved to Vancouver, Canada. I’m living in a pretty overpriced part of town called Kitsilano. It’s the land of million dollar bungalows, yoga moms and private school kids who get dropped off at the gate every morning in a mercedes. There is a very affordable “No Frills” grocery store in the area,  but it is a little bike ride away. So whenever ____________ (I’m lazy, the weather sucks, I’m starving…) I default to the only big grocery store reachable on foot – Safeway.

This is the most expensive grocery store I have ever been to. We are talking about $3 cans of beans, $7 boxes of cereal and everything else twice the price of where you shop. I once accidentally purchased green peppers thinking they were $2.99/lbs. Nope, that was $2.99/PEPPER!

I dropped by today for some juice as I recover from a day long hangover. As I was walking through the baked goods section cursing the store for only selling no-name orange juice in the giant 3 litre format, a jug that will most certainly NOT fit into a small fridge shared by three dudes, I noticed something unusual. Somebody had picked up an apple strudel, taken a bite out of it and then left it on top of the loaves of fresh bread. Normally I would condemn such a thing as it’s a waste of food and it is kind of disgusting. Instead I was laughing aloud. Screw you Safeway.

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 3 years to get that many views.
