Well, Aldi is a discount supermarket. Their produce in general isn't great, but it differs (in France it's better than in Northern Germany).

I go to Trader Joes for nuts, chocolate, beer, punjab choley, olive oil, coconut milk, and other pantry goods. It's hard to beat for stuff like that. I never get the stuff that needs to be cooled because it takes too long to get home.

TJ's is owned by Aldi. I don't know the whole setup, but one of the Aldi divisions, or whatever it's called, owns TJ's, while the other one operates in the U.S. as Aldi.

Got business cards. These are considered almost as valuable as gold among my government colleagues. When budgets get cut, the little stuff like biz cards are the first things to go; they've been hard to come across since the Great Recession hit.

As a VIP, I got some. bigstar[1].gif

Oh, didn't know that. Well, no wonder why the Aldi brothers are that rich.

Drunken orders from Vista Print can lead to lulz.

I have a core group of professional colleagues - most of whom worked for me at one time or another. A new gold mine opened up and there is some opportunity for some people to be poached.

All this time, I had a mistaken view of who the most loyal ones were. I knew #1, but had no idea about #2 until the past couple days.

I'm rather touched.
