Wow, but that was good. To Christophers in Porter Square, then over to the Hub (on Hubbard Ave, of course!) to hang out a bit and just chill... then a slog back home via Shaws. Brisk! And somehow nostalgic... Not a drop of slush to be seen, either. Very nice indeed.

(Edit: and they had concrete advice for how to break the logjam on the writing project! Whee!)

Shaws proved worthless for one of my two objectives there: Milk. They were out of Organic 1%. Haven't they figured out the amount to order yet? Though, if a person buying organic will automatically failover to the Garelick or Hood, then they may lose a little bit of money... if they fail to sell out all of their organic milk before expiration, they may lose a different amount of money. If that second amount is, on average, more than the first, I guess it could be rational, in their business plan, to eit the customers every once in a while.

Bastards.

But really, I don't actually feel too angry about that... well, at least not until I started looking for things to be angry at. So I will fail to be angry.

From someone else's post somewhere in the past couple months, it sounds like grocery stores aren't getting to do as much of their own ordering as they used to. Also, remember that you went to the grocery store after everyone and their brother went to stock up on supplies before the big storm. It's possible that demand for some things (like milk) was completely wonky because it that and everything will go back to usual soon.

Ah, so that's where you were!

And yeah, milk and bread are the canonical pre-blizzard foods people buy.

I certainly noticed that the Stop-n-Shop near me has a lot of inventory failures. They sold completely out of confectioner's sugar a week before christmas, and a couple of things I'd buy regularly, I'm only able to buy semi-regularly, because they chronically run out...
