What I Hated the Least Today 186/365: Loyalty Cards

Inspired by this Rebekah's post, which was inspired by this my post (it's complicated), here's a follow-up on the (not so) thrilling subject of groceries and loyalty cards. I have quite a collection of them, against my better judgement. Most of them do very little, and what some of them do I don't even know. … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 186/365: Loyalty Cards

What I Hated the Least Today 184/365: Groceries

I've been to get my groceries today. Or, as the Scots say, messages. Sure, my life is uneventful to that extreme when going out to get groceries is an event. Also, I'm running out of subjects to blog about (see my recent toilet paper post), so I figure I'll blog my grocery bill today. Yes, … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 184/365: Groceries

What I Hated the Least Today 180/365: No Foodie

I'm a … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 180/365: No Foodie

I found myself very uplifted when … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 150/365: Lifestyle

What I Hated the Least Today 148/365: Eating Out

I never eat out—except when I do, of course. I did so when I had two hours to pass away before my return bus's departure when I finished teaching/examining. I could have taken the more expensive, less comfortable and Wi-Fi-less train, but I'm loyal to my preferred bus service (less expensive, more comfortable and Wi-Fi-equipped). … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 148/365: Eating Out

What I Hated the Least Today 145/365: Nutrition Specialist

As I was sitting on a bench, having consumed a snack of puffed rice bread and finished off with a smoke, I was approached by a young man of unclear intentions. Have you been sitting here long? he inquired. I considered it a curious way of greeting but responded that not really and inquired what he wanted. He wouldn't … Continue reading What I Hated the Least Today 145/365: Nutrition Specialist
