79 cent banana

I seriously just paid that for a banana. In my defense, I didn't know it would cost that much. I didn't even consider it might cost that much. It was a banana! Not only was it a banana, but it was a crappy banana. It kinda tasted like soap which is very disappointing after paying so much for it. I could buy a whole pound for that much, I think. I don't buy bananas all that often. I understand that the UI has to recover from the flooding. It's going to cost a lot more than they thought, but do they have to take it out on those who just want a decent banana?

And to continue with a little ranting, it's 21C (~70F) in here, which while an improvement over 19C, it is still not a comfortable workplace temperature.

I hate that!! It seems like bananas you buy anywhere but the grocery store are always really expensive and taste gross. This is why I usually end up with a 50 cent bag of crap instead of fruit when I have to buy lunch. :)

I just realized that you're moving out of the state. Duh. I'm sad! You'll have to keep blogging so we'll know what you're up to.

You and your poor (expensive) banana of woe. Sucks man.

Ok, is it sad that I don't know how much a banana normally costs? I do hate how crappy they can taste sometime though. I know people are big on going to the fruit market, but honestly, our fruit market isn't that much better because everything is still crated and shipped.
