Yogurt! I Hate Yogurt! Even With Strawberries!

If you don't know what movie that's from...you are a sad sorry sack and I don't want anything to do with you.

Have you noticed that yogurt with fruit on the bottom is ALWAYS cheaper than yogurt that is already mixed? Isn't that strange? On average, you will save 10 cents a pop if you're willing to swirl your spoon aroun
d for 15 seconds. Those who are not willing to expend the effort are penalized with the higher price. The funny thing is...I almost never see anyone reach for the fruit on the bottom kind. They all tend to lean toward the "time saving" option. Weird.

I'm going to start tallying how much money I save by stirring my own yogurt. I'm betting that by the end of the year...I'll be able to buy somethin
g with it. Something that the lazy ass pre-stirred population won't ever be able to afford. And I will taunt them with it.

Does it seem like I have too much time on my hands? I assure you, this is not the case.


This weekend there are TWO egg decorating parties in the works. Saturday is at someone's house who I do not know...and Sunday will be at Marie's House of Globes. We're making Disco Eggs. Yes...there will be pictures. If it's nice on Saturday Amy and I might get drunk at a picnic in the park and then head to the zoo to yell obscenities at the caged beasts. Kids need to learn about the real world sometime.

Look at my sister. Aren't she and her offspring adorable?

17 keep(s) me blogging:

I don't go for the fruit at the bottom cups because I have chronic tendonitis on my wrist. It hurts to stir.
Oh and I had yogurt for breakfast today. It has that Bifidus Regularis stuff in it..."That's the stupidest combination I ever heard in my life!"

Well isn't that just typical? I went to London Zoo last Saturday and had to lecture some people about their bad behaviour. If I saw you yelling at the animals I would spank you until you said "uncle".

First of all,
'I WANT THAT PICTURE," says Grammie.
Second of all, the only kind of yogurt worth having, which is always stirred by the way, is Tillamook. And that's all there is to say about that. Doll baby!

Laura said...

That is SO not cool that you posted that photo on your blog. The child is adorable, I will grant you that. I, on the other hand, look like a muppet. Please won't you crop me out of it? Have mercy on your older, muppet-faced sister, I beg of you.

Jill said...

OK, I admit it. I don't know what movie that's from. I AM a sad sack.

Are you going to tell us?

Kara said...

ax - pansy!

goranas - um...you'd have to CATCH me first. and even inebriated (sp?) i'm fairly certain i could outrun you.

future - i dig the Tillamook, but this money saving fantasticness is the key too my scooter. not literally, but figuratively.

my muppet-faced sister - no.

jill - oh come ON! Spaceballs!

Laura said...

K - Blast you!

Everyone else - Spaceballs is a classic and if you haven't seen it, you are indeed, as Kara says, a sad sack.

What a wee sweetie-pie!

Laura, well sprung, m'girl. You done sprung that offspring real well. Beautiful!

Orhan Kahn said...

Adorable, indeed :)

nato said...

"no sir! I did not see you playing with your dolls again sir!"


one of the greatest movies of all time

I don't buy yogurt with fruit in it. The fruit just bothers me. I hope I don't seem odd for confessing this.

thethinker said...

Oh, and Spaceballs is a classic.

Allan said...

The mixed ones usually have 20 or so more calories too, more sugar and added corn starch, I think. Plain w/added fruit is good.

slaghammer said...

It’s been a decade or two but I’ve seen Space Balls several times and I don’t remember that line. I will research the issue. Btw miss smarty pants, where did this line come from: “Get your hams out of my face please, I’m trying to boil cabbage here!” Give up? That’s what I thought. It is from The Misadventures of Henrod Gash.
Oh yeah, great photo, outrageously cute baby, sis does not look like a muppet, boiled eggs are best served pickled and there is nothing nastier than that petroleum-based artificially colored slurry at the bottom of yogurt canisters, I eat it anyway.

Kav said...

Oh jaysis, I love yoghurt. Especially with big chunks of strawberries.

I'll wipe up that drool in a minute.

Kara said...

sam - and you wouldn't even believe how squishable he is. and it doesn't even make him urp!

orhan - i'll thank you on her behalf

nato - it's definitely in the top ten.

thinker - you are odd. but your opinions are welecome and encouraged.

alan - so they get you with price AND they get you with calories. bastards!

slag - i think you should research the issue as your better half seems to be totally ignorant of the important things in life...namely Spaceballs quotes.

kav - i never thought of yogurt as being drool-worthy. i mean, it's good and all, and if some of it escapes out the side of your mouth it resembles drool...thick drool...but that's really where the comparison ends.

Macoosh said...

i don't like any kind of yoghurt. even the name is gross.

your family is gorgeous! that child is making the best face ever!!!

and, if you have this much time on your hands, you should be babysitting my blog this week haha.
