Cost Plus World Market, my favorite choice for nice chocolates in this area, is closing its Twin Cities stores. How bad is it for them? They were playing classic country on the radio when I came instead of vapid "world" elevator music. It was a great improvement--now if only they would have dropped the cost of the chocolates by 60% instead of just 15%, it would have been really good....come on deflation!
And so I got this song stuck in my head for about the next day. But on the bright side, George Jones points out something that's really decent theology; that a man stops loving his wife only when they put his nicest suit on him and lay him in a box, no matter what happens when he's alive. (and arguably he keeps on loving her even then, at least if he's not subject to excessive heat in the afterlife)
Another good thing is happening due to the Pelosi/Reid/Obama Depression; Quizno's in Waconia closed, and has been replaced by a Vienna Beef store. Yay!
There's incentive to get my resume out there and get a new job. :^)
