Technology Is Not For Me


The winner of the Momentum Wrap Bracelet Giveaway is Shannon! Thank you to everyone for entering; Shannon, I will email you this morning!

Anyone remember the TI – 82 calculator?

You know, the giant (and scary) thing they called a scientific calculator which was required in math and science classes for us to store our formulas?

I never used one. I had a harder time figuring out how to use it and store the formulas than memorizing the actual formula needed for the exams.

In case you didn’t already know, I hate technology. Always have and always will. I am old-fashioned, close-minded and don’t adapt well to modern computer processes.

I hate widgets and plug-ins, I don’t want to clear my cache and haven’t a clue what to do with things like HTML or FTP.

And, if you want to know how I really feel, I find it rude that the people who developed this computer language that I don’t care to speak made use of the word cookie. It is just not nice to throw around “cookie” when there really isn’t an actual cookie to be had.

This hate for technology completes my trio of hates:

hate people and pants

This would be my original tag line and should I ever have the actual shirt made, please remind me to add technology to the design.

Anyway, today is Friday. Friday has become my day to play in NYC. Well, not all play I guess. I have a business type lunch meeting at Sarabeth’s and will then stick around town for a good dinner.

Remember the last time I was at Sarabeth’s? I couldn’t resist the oatmeal for lunch and was then starving because there wasn’t a drop of protein in my meal. Hmm. I am all about more carbs/less protein these days but one needs a little protein to not feel nauseous hungry so I am going to try to order something different today.

To save myself from throwing my pretty pink laptop across the room yesterday, I unplugged in order to tackle my grocery shopping in advance of the weekend.

After carefully reviewing this the sales at my local grocery stores for this week, I determined that most of what I buy is cheapest at Trader Joe’s regardless of special pricing and sales.

Yesterday’s haul:

Fresh Produce:

  • Bananas
  • Plum tomatoes
  • Broccoli
  • Mandarin Oranges
  • Carrots
  • Cruciferous Crunch Mix
  • Strawberries
  • Potatoes


  • Rice Medley – if you are still boiling your own rice, you are wasting your time
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Asparagus
  • Chicken Shu Mai
  • Blueberries – Um hello, where are the decent priced pints of fresh blueberries these days?


  • Organic Chick Peas
  • Organic Black Beans
  • Refried Beans
  • Organic Spaghetti Sauce
  • Coconut Oil Cooking Spray
  • Reduced Guilt Popcorn – I am obsessed at the moment.
  • Pepper
  • Semi-Sweet chocolate chips
  • Whole Wheat English Muffins

Notes regarding my purchases:

*Ever since I announced that my son and I are all about the Wild Frozen Shrimp, they stopped selling it, I can’t find it at any of the locations and it isn’t polite.

*My son has developed an expensive palate and requests to go out for Japanese food several nights a week which just isn’t happening so I compromised and bought him Chicken Shu Mai to satisfy his need for restaurant Shrimp Shu Mai.

*I am still hung up on the Fruity Pebbles so I bought Fruity O’s to make myself feel better.

Fruity- O's

I may or may not bake something with the Fruity O’s this weekend. I have it in my mind to do so but I also have a long run to look forward to, Red Mango to eat, a Little League game to attend as well as an awesome dinner in store for me tomorrow night which hopefully concludes with chocolate fudge cake.

What are you doing this weekend?

Anyone else hate technology as much as me?

Bloggers, do you go insane from widgets and codes and programming for your site?

What day of the week do you do most of your grocery shopping? Do you end up in the stores more than once a week like me?
