The Shopping List Compendium:
a collection of abandoned shopping and grocery lists




072 - Ziemnielei


Pass. I'm not a particularly talented linguist at the best of times, but I'm bloomin' useless at even attempting a translation if I don't know what language it is in the first place! Fortunately Maria has stepped into the breech with an amazing bit of investigative work.

She emailed to say: 'I recognize some words on it as Russian but written in English. Item number four on the list is parsley, sixth one is 1 tomato and eighth is 1 sour cream. Down the bottom somewhere we also have bread. Unfortunately i can't make out the rest.' Don't worry, Maria, you should be more than happy with that contribution to the Compendium. Gold star!

This site is made possible by the kind people who abandon their shopping list at the end of a trip to the supermarket. I collect those shopping lists. You might refer to these as grocery lists, which strikes me as a bit strange because not all the items on the lists are groceries. Anyhow, I won't worry myself about it if you won't.

For those of you who have asked why I do this, please just be content with the fact that I do. I saw a list lying abandoned in a trolley once, and thought, "I'll have that". So I did.

Each shopping list I find is added to my collection along with comments about each list, which usually consist of me spouting on about the possible personality of the person who wrote it. I'm quite harsh at times, at others I feel a pang of compassion. Sometimes I just don't know what items are. Hopefully it will aid your procrastination.
