So, I Stopped at Trader Joe's.... buy some wheat crackers for the leftover Colby Jack cheese I had on hand because I it was closer to home than Kroger's and I didn't feel like shopping. It's been a while since I've been there and I haven't been in since they purged most of the staff - my neighbor across the hall and his girlfriend worked there; they've since moved - and I really noticed the changes.

They rearranged the items drastically - the coolers inside the front door that held the cheeses and bad mass-produced faux sushi were replaced with cut flowers and the staff had a different look to them; no longer the Bonnaroo hippie folks that used to be there. More striking was the clientele. With the exception of a young nurse (in scrubs), the customers overwhlemingly consisted of butch lesbians, Obama supporters and Apple Mac worshipers.

Not that I have a problem with butch lesbians, mind you.

Anyhoo, I got a small box of Wheat Thin knockoffs for a decent price, though the box was half-air - why doesn't the Goreacle campaign for right-sized boxes? - the crackers themselves were pretty good. The last time I bought wheat crackers from TJ's, they were salty as heck. Not very tasty or healthy.
