two things that i love.

1. discovering Overheard in Chicago! thanks for the heads up cinnamon! now i can send in all the ridiculous conversations that i overhear on the El.

2. trader joe's. good lord, that place is fantastic. it was one of those places that, up until about a month ago, i had heard of and been inside once or twice, but never really registered on my mental radar. then i started noticing that when we'd be at friends' houses and they'd have good food and i'd be like "this is tasty!" and they'd be like "it's from trader joe's!" (and then i'd be like "far out no way!" and they'd be like "way!" and be like "wow that is like so cool." that is to pre-empt any of you making fun of me for my "like" usage. stuff it.) so then some co-workers chimed in about how great it was, and decided i had to check it out. i've been three times, and i am completely in love. their hummus! their sweet peppers! their frozen veggie burritos! their salsa! their indian food that i can cook in five minutes! it is almost too good to be true.

oh, and two buck chuck. can't forget that. and it really says something about how much i love trader joe's that i'm willing to write the word "chuck" twice in one sentence.

I like Whole Foods better. IMHO, they've got it all over Trader Joe's.

toast, it's official - we encapsulate the yin and yang of the entire universe. i loathe whole foods with an intensity that no one should ever direct at something like a grocery store :) but that's a whole 'nother story....

You and your fancy gourmet market...I guess I need to find myself a job at a posh nonprofit like yours so I'll have the excess funds to afford such delicacies...
