Outside looking in...



My mom and I play this game called "What does this say about me" wherein we examine what we're wearing or the various shopping bags we're carrying and try to figure out exactly what about us the strangers are judging. Because, y'know, we would never judge strangers based on clothing or anything.

Anyway, this afternoon, I had a rather eclectic trip to the grocery store and library. What do my choices say about me? I'll determine them below.

LIBRARY
"Queen of Babble in the Big City," Meg Cabot
"Beyond (Straight and Gay) Marriage: Valuing All Families under the Law," Nancy D. Polikoff
"Set This House in Order: A Romance of Souls," Matt Ruff
"Only Love Can Break Your Heart," David Samuels"
"The Undomestic Goddess," Sophie Kinsella
"Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Women's Rights Movement," Sally G. McMillen

What it says about me: Confused bisexual looking for a ring from anyone who'll give her one.
What it really means: Someone who went in looking for some light reading (Cabot, Kinsella) and her book club book (Ruff) who got distracted by the New Releases display (everything else) and went a little crazy.

GROCERY STORE
Pita chips
3 tangerines
Minute Maid limeade concentrate
Snapple nectarine white tea
Shampoo and conditioner (Herbal Essences Hello Hydration)
Mousse (Sunsilk Waves of Envy)
6-pack of Sierra Nevada

What it says about me: Thirsty single girl with dirty hair and a fear of scurvy.
What really means: Thirsty single girl with dirty hair and a fear of scurvy.

Now, tell me what you think my reading and grocery habits say about me.

Or tell me what your grocery and reading habits say about you.
