1. Do you shop locally?

2. How much shopping do you do online?

3. Do you antique, thrift shop, or go to flea markets or yard sales?

I didn't even check that since my comments were only about how "I" like the chips over Lays and I certainly wasn't making any nutritional claims!

Lays tastes like crap.  And only a moron chooses a POTATO CHIP for its nutritional data.

That's how I feel about Gramma Utz's Hand cooked chips.  They're easily the LEAST healthy option when it comes to chips, but damn, if I'm going to waste calories on chips, I want them to be the yummiest.  They're cooked in lard.  And they taste awesome.

It looks like you were comparing 100g of Tyrells chips to 28g of Lay's chips.

You got your nutrition facts wrong.  They are virtually identical if you compare like serving sizes.

Not that it matters, they are both junk food.

That isn't what she said.  When you deleted the rest of her sentence, you changed the meaning of her words.   You probably shouldn't do that, because it makes you look like a liar.

1. Do you shop locally?  I try support local businesses when I can-- we have a fantastic toy store.

2. How much shopping do you do online?  A lot.  That's my preferred way to buy clothes for myself and other random items that I don't know the best place to buy in person.  Especially, if there isn't a locally owned store where I know I can buy it.

3. Do you antique, thrift shop, or go to flea markets or yard sales?  Hardly ever, but I wish I did.

but she's skinny tall..and that's a difference... skinny tall makes people be all "ooohh!  so willowy! such a model!  legs for days! "  Bea ARthur tall (which is what I am) makes people go "wow.. sturdy!  maybe she will reach something from a high shelf for me" .... we tend to inspire fear not awe...

Hey, it works for the Duchess of Cambridge.  That woman has got to be 6 foot twenty or something, yet she wears these incredible heels.  I'm in awe.

My friend used to tell me the same thing about beef.  Her family used to live out in the country have a farm, raised cows and ate their own beef.  The cats got the beef sometimes to eat.  When they moved into town (and this was 15+ years ago, so it's not a new beef thing) the cats would not touch any beef from the grocery store.
