I was in the vicinity of three cars getting pulled over by police yesterday, thankfully for me I was never one of those drivers.

On the way home yesterday I did a brief grocery run. For some reason I can no longer find MorningStar Farms’s vegetarian pulled pork in stores. I really liked it, but wonder if I was the only one?

My productive night came to a crashing halt when I fell asleep super early. This should come as a surprise to no one. At least I can proudly say that I was I the office again before 7am today.

    Proudly? Dang, I guess I don’t understand the word proud. I’m “proudly” still in bed at 8. That’s a feat for me.

    The new Publix is open on Memorial as of 7:00 am. You can actually hear the angels sing when you walk into a brand-new Publix. And now I don’t ever have to set foot in that abhorrent Glenwood Kroger ever again.

    • Yes, I am proud of this. You can be proud of whatever you wish.

      I don’t shop at Publix much because I think their prices are higher. I also hope that fewer customers in the Glenwood Kroger will mean fewer items will be sold out, and lines will be shorter. At least I hope these will be true.

        Fair enough on being proud.

        I’ll do my part to free up space for you at Kroger. The gargantuan store never has at least a couple of crucial ingredients I need on any given day any way.

        I’ll gladly pay more to actually be able to find what I’m looking for.

    I was mostly awake until 10 last night. While Debbie enjoys staying downtown, I am retraining the dogs to not wake us up in the middle of the night to go out. 3rd night of training and it’s already working. Ollie whimpered once through the night and I told him to shut up. I don’t think Lola budged. I did take everyone out before bed- not just let them out (when they can just come right back in). So far, so good.

    15 miles on the CX bike. Not that terribly warm last night. Delicious truck stop Mexican for dinner… and no, I’m not kidding.

    Surely a new Publix will force the Glenwood Kroger to up their game?

      aren’t you funny – thinking Kroger will up their game.
      My ghetto Kroger has had a huge problem of prices on the shelf not matching the register. I’ve gotten really annoyed having to get help & get the correct prices rung up. (I only buy a few things at a time, so I can sort of remember prices) I finally was fed up enough, I Facebook messenger’d them about it. I supposedly have a $30 credit on my Kroger Plus Card now. I haven’t been back since, so one day soon I’ll find out if that is true.

    • ITP Lurker says:

      Steve, fat chance of Kroger upping anything other than their prices, a la Barb’s

      And truck stop Mexican? Respect, man. I’d have to be insanely hungry to go there. But clearly I’m missing out.

      • Steve says:

        This place generally has a line in the evenings, and the “Nationals” are the most frequent customers. To me, that’s a big clue that it’s good, or at least authentic.

    • I ate at a taco stand attached to a gas station near Athens once, and it was fantastic. I want to go back that way just to eat there again, assuming it’s still in business.

      • Barb says:

        when we were in St Croix, we are at 2 gas station restaurants – quite tasty.
        in Atlanta, per some survey – Krispy Krunchy Chicken that is sold at some gas stations is the best fried chicken in town! (I tried it, it is good)

  3. Coworkers talking about how the Dekalb County Courthouse was shut down due to an anthrax scare yesterday; Moonlite hash started at the bank on Commerce on Monday night… Fortunately there is no link because the scare was prompted by a letter sent to the courthouse. 😅

    The new Publix is glorious. Parking lot looks like it will be a shit show, but that’s to be expected from Fuqua, the developer. I have have never seen so many happy and engaged employees under one roof.

    • Steve says:

      Management must be lurking…

      • ITP Lurker says:

        Publix employees own stock in the company. It makes a difference. Even at a “normal” Publix the employees are noticeably more cheerful. I rolled right up on an empty register, which *never* happens at Kroger. I’ll put away my soap box now though.
