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”.

Banahaha

Torn piece of note paper, turned, with blue biro. I am not sure I can read all of these words. My best guess is:

  • Chocolate almond
  • Salt
  • Peanut
  • Callllorole
  • Cashew x 1
  • Orange juice
  • Banahaha

A lot of nuts, or very few is the lack of plurals is to be considered seriously.

Interestingly, this list has two sides. What are we to make of this?

Small Potatoes

A list on A4 lined and punched paper pulled from a pad. Written in biro by two people. The first in capitals, the second amending in what looks to be an older style in lower case.

Ordinary tea suggests that other types of tea are sometimes purchased. Quite a healthy list, no meat, low fat.

Cryptolist

This is all perfectly clear, the list reads: Soup, fogultunt?, cereal, pomegranate, bhasumiss?, rocket, rinpoos?, kitchen roll, cats, boats?, crisps/nuts.

They say that the most intelligent have hard to read hand writing, for example doctors, and indeed Einstein:

Glucos


Glu cos?, milk, potatoes, butter x 3, eggs, meat, greens, ham, 1 pk b/beans, crisps, nuts, bacon, cuscus, unsure. [sic]

The purchased items have been diligently crossed off. It is a shame there were no nuts. And also no sign of Glu cos?

Found Aldi, Reading.
