maeyan (in the soup aisle, looking at Random Impulse Buys hanging on display-strips) : *holds up tube*
maeyan: "What does Hello Kitty flavored lip gloss taste like?"
mpoetess: "..."
mpoetess: "I... can't answer that. This is a family store."
mpoetess: *stares silently at maeyan for several seconds*
maeyan: (coming closer with cart) "What?"
mpoetess: "Just composing the LJ post in my head."

mpoetess: *attempts to put soup in cart*
maeyan: *turns cart away each time I bring soup near it*
maeyan: "The cart rejects that soup."
mpoetess: *holds up soup* "Clam chowder?"
maeyan: "The cart is... confused."
mpoetess: "I thought the cart liked clam chowder?"
maeyan (who likes clam chowder, not that it matters, since the soup is mine): "The cart...is having an identity crisis."
maeyan: "The cart wishes it were IRL."1
mpoetess: *stares at maeyan more*
maeyan: *laughs in crazed manner*
mpoetess: "Now I'mcomposing the footnote to the LJ post."

She bought me the lip gloss. As a prompt, so I wouldn't forget to make the LJ post. It does not taste like Hello Kitty. It tastes like vaguely-sugar-flavored stuff, like pretty much every other liquid lip-gloss. It smells like watermelon.

I'm from northwest Indiana, which is still in the Chicago viewing (and cable) area; we didn't and still don't have any of our own tv stations, except for a PBS channel out of Gary/Merrillville and one public access cable channel, as far as I know.

A room zoom zoom, a room zoom zoom,
A room zoom gillie gillie ah sa sa.
(As this is probably Yiddish-based, I'm sure the transcription is off.)
Come through the Magic Door with me,
And many are the wondrous things you'll see...

I had to cheat on the last line, though.
