You're sitting at the breakfast table of a Saturday morning, checking the store fliers, listening to "Car Talk," and composing a grocery list. You're shopping for Sammy Sosa , Samuel Johnson, or Steven Shaw. Epicurus , Elvis, or Elmo. If you're really lucky, maybe even ---- Uma!

Must haves:

Honore de Balzac:
1 Kilo Sumatran
1 Kilo Arabica
1 Kilo Columbian
1 liter ink

Blood Oranges
Gravenstein apples
Bloody Marie of Roumania Mix
(No stop at the wine shop)

Hugh Grant:
Spotted Dick
Dental floss
Jelly Babies

Dear eGull, you can do better. Don't forget the toilet paper and cat food!

Be brilliant here: Entries: Round Thirteen
