So...winter is here, and I like to lightly sweeten my hot tea with honey, but my local target discontinued Stash tea products including the honey straws. I figured the local Whole Foods might carry something equivalent, so I made a stop during my lunch hour. In the space of five minutes, I saw four different brunettes wearing minor variations of the same black yoga leggings, boots, and a long-sleeved, bluish-purple ensemble top.
Which, lacking Starfleet Academy insignias, is actually quite eery. I paid cash and got out of there.
Whole Foods is a bizarre place. The food does seem to be of fairly high quality, but it tends to be way over-priced. And homeopathic remedies? Yeah, right...
When they first opened up the one near us I noted that they had a decent selection of microbrewed beers. My hopes in this area were quickly dashed though; they're all kept directly under (and very close to) bright flourescent lights. Every beer I've bought there has been badly lightstruck (skunked), so I don't buy beer there any more.
I'll occasionally go there if I need an unusual ingredient for a batch of homebrew (e.g. unsweetened flaked coconut, bulk raw buckwheat, etc.), and hit their food court once in a blue moon for lunch, but that's about it.
The years just pass like trains. I wave, but they don't slow down.
