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




135 - Black and Blue


I'm tempted to class the blue items as emergency items, but the listing of "Yvonne" warns me not to. I doubt that anybody would need, nor indeed be able to find, an emergency Yvonne. It is, therefore, more likely that the items in blue are _for_ someone called Yvonne. Perhaps she's planning a dinner party and wants cheese and wine as dessert? It links quite well with the "gin" and "tonic" (linked by brackets). Perhaps G&T for an apperitife and cheese and wine for dessert. My, how civilised!

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.
