Fred Meyer French Onion with Bacon Vegetable Dip

As a kid, I was fascinated by the hardware store. It had aisles and aisles full of shiny, mysterious gadgets. It also had a distinctive smell, composed primarily of grease, burnt metal, and dirty old linoleum. I hadn’t felt that particular sense of wonder at a poorly-understood sense of order and purpose and shiny in many years… and then I tried this vegetable dip. It tastes exactly like the floor of a hardware store smells.

Sometimes I just need to blog about a product to remind myself never, ever to buy it again.

Below the fold: O iTunes Oracle, will I ever forget this warning and waste another dollar on shitty generic vegetable dip?

The Oracle says: Yes. Apparently I am a doomed, doomed, doomed creature of habit, and by “habit” I mean “impulse purchase”. Good thing gross generic veggie dips are also pretty cheap.

    All this means is that seven months from now you’ll be exhausted and roving the grocery store late at night and think “Fred Meyer French Onion Vegetable Dip with Bacon, huh, that sounds familiar. I think I blogged about that… It must have been really good.”

    You must blog about it again the next time you buy it so we can point and laugh.

    I must admit, your iTunes prognostications baffle me.

    For one thing, I do not know the significance of the bulleted, bold nouns and gerunds.

    And aside from that, in the years I’ve been reading your blog I don’t think I’ve ever recognized any of the songs or artists. I guess I really am an old fart.

    I suppose I should stop slacking off on posting the link to the key.

    Young farts don’t recognize my music either. If North European folk music had any indie cred I would be an awesome hipster.

    I started to look at the key, but decided that it might be more fun to guess…
