I've never met most of my regular blog readers, am email pals with a few, but appreciate all of you. Nicole is one who has often tipped me off to fascinating topics that she thinks might be worth sharing.
So, welcome to GroceryLists.org. Here's Bill Keaggy:
"In 1997, I picked up a discarded grocery list at a St. Louis
supermarket. I found it to be a fascinating glimpse into a stranger's
life and decided to pick them up whenever I found one. In 2000, I
posted my collection of about 40 lists to the web. By 2004, when the
New York Times Magazine profiled me and this collection, I had about
500. In early 2006 I started working on a book about these lost lists
and by the time it was published in May 2007, there were 1,600 lists on
the site (with thousands more yet to be scanned and posted).
The book, 'Milk Eggs Vodka: Grocery Lists Lost and Found', features about 200 of the best: The funniest, the weirdest, the saddest, the strangest, the unhealthiest and more. Simply put, it is a strange, fascinating and hilarious look at other peoples' discarded grocery lists. Published by HOW Books, it's hardcover, 240 pages, full-color — a beautiful compilation of shopping habits, spelling quirks and good fun. Learn more about the book at www.milkeggsvodka.com."
"List #1648: Nice. Self-directed sarcasm, bad dogs. Keeping it real. And very alone."
"List 1114: All I need to tell you is that this list was found in West Virginia. It's like the joke writes itself!"
