Day 8: Temp X and Trader Joe's Project

[The following was originally written last Sunday.  But then I quit my absurd job and had to write about that.]

Dinner:  Raisin Bran

Raisin Bran: $2.69 (20 oz.)
Soy Milk: $3.49 (half gallon)

As was well documented last week, I pretty much ran out of food.  So I scurried off to Trader Joe's on Sunday morning to restock the cupboards and reclaim them from the dust bunnies that had moved in.  You might have recognized me.  I was the only one taking pictures of the Trader Joe's sign much to the confusion of the old Russian couple standing in front.  But after dropping $77.16, I have enough food to last me until the end of this ridiculous blog stunt.  By the way, did I mention I'm going to do a drink/blog along with the Teen Choice Award on August 9.  Stay tuned.

Oh, and regular milk makes me toot.  That's why I get soy milk.

Something weird that happens every time I go grocery shopping.  No matter how fancy I get in terms of what food I buy or how determined I am to have a dinner that suggests I'm a grown up, I some how always revert back to cereal for dinner. Perhaps it reminds me of my youth when I had fewer responsibilities and pressures.  Perhaps it's because it's the easiest thing to prepare short of just ordering out pizza.

It doesn't help worth a shit.  Seemingly nothing I do helps me in Hollywood.  I go to networking events -- nothing happens.  I periodically go to drinks with other underlings -- nothing happens.   I write a bunch of scripts -- nothing happens.  I suck up to execs -- nothing happens.  I attempt reverse psychology and decide to "leave" Hollywood in hopes that the Fates will then throw some good fortune my way -- nothing happens.  I do nothing -- nothing happens.  So I decided to try eating raisin bran.  Wanna guess what happened?
