Lighter Long

A4 Lined, spiral bound, folded. Black biro.

A short list of items, maybe somebody planning a barbecue for Saturday. They need fire lighters and ‘lighter long. Maybe this is long matches?

Speculating, they needs rolls for sausages and burgers and maybe a salad to go with it.

Cake for afterwards.

Compost Bags and Bread Sticks

This could be described as a mixed list.

It looks like it is written on a piece of water colour paper or heavily textured writing paper, itself unusual in the genre.

The items here are not natural bed fellows. Stock, masking tape, compost bags and breadsticks are followed spread, jam and oats.

Further down the list are hairbands and chips, then a horizontal line indicates the point where I can no longer decipher what is written.

The natural thing to do is to place these words into an automatic poem generator.

This is the result:

Where are the misty hair clips?
Travel roughly like warm oats.
All hair clips desire old, big compost bags breadsticks and spread.
Sunny, rainy hair clips calmly pull some cold, cold masking tape.
Endurance, endurance, and courage.

Hmm…

Central Reservation

Interesting to see a centre justified list. Items are bunched around a mostly invisible centrally vertical dividing line. Although in some cases, Ham | Chicken are visibly separated with a vertical bar.

A5, lined and spiral bound paper.

Dog and cat owner, smoker?

Doritos are listed as well as tortilla chips. Hmm.

On the back of the list is a date “Wed 22nd, 2:30pm”.

Spa Water

A small piece of paper, torn on 3 sides. Maybe belonging to an older hand.

Unusual to see a particular brand of water required.

What is W.U.L? Ah – washing up liquid 🙂

I suppose Bis is biscuits. Ch Burgers are chicken. Marg is margarine.

Mouse Treats

Very nice neat handwriting here, lots of items fitted on a folded A5 spiral bound piece of paper.

Likely a mother of children at school age, with pets. Mouse treats, “kid’s” crisps/snacks, cookie dough, lollies.

Meat captured in a separate area of the list in large parenthesis. Chicken, prawns, muscles, bacon, ribs, sausages.

Orzo pasta suggests a cook in the house.

Choc Dig

White paper, 145mm x 100mm, cut with scissors. Staple torn from upper left indicates that this sheet was once not alone.

This person has a sweet tooth. Items include Choc Dig (what is dig?), custard cream biscuits, cake and ice cream.

After all the sweetness, this shopper was planning the main meal. Diced beef has been crossed out and replaced by chicken thighs, to be served maybe as a stew with vegetables and mashed potato.
