The imminent famine

I sure there must be one coming- going by the hordes buying up at Pak & Save today!

Honestly, the shops are only closed for two days! How much can you frickin' eat in that time.

But then looking at the numerous examples of Ambulocetus* blocking the aisles- quite a bit!

All I have left to do is pick up my ham on Monday, so I can avoid the Red Shed, Pak & Save and the other forms of retail hell for the really crazy days.

The seasonal insanity has also spread to the roads, going by the low-grade moron driving at 65km on the open road, oblivious to the rest of the world.

It's that or German Cortinas doing warp factor nine on their way to the cutsy holiday cottage in Martinborough or Greytown.

Normally I go into hiding at this time of year, but I'm working so I can't...

* Look it up like I did

Without googling it, I'd guess it means something like "walking whale"?

Oh good, i thought it was just me, it beggars belief how people clean out the shops, come on people it's just two days. Does the fridge have to be overflowing before you can sleep easy at night. And they'll all be pushing and shoving when the shops open again.

And those morons doing 85-95 in a 100 zone and suddenly finding speed as soon as an over taking lane comes up, makes one wish for an RPG.
