1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yeah, but if you buy food elsewhere, you might have to do something more than put it in the microwave to eat it.

    About once every two months, we rent a Zipcar and make the trip out to the Target in Queens on a weekday night. It's a pretty relaxing shopping experience. We don't really save much, if anything, but the girlfriend enjoys shopping there.

    Was like that the one time I went to the one in Downtown Brooklyn too.


    Strangely, the Whole Foods on the UWS was only as crowded as it usually is on the weekends.

    and it's not like there's 35 TJ's to choose from. I know of 3, and all are far apart.

    Huh. I'd hit a CostCo if I wanted to stock up. Anything but a TJ actually...and not Whole Food either.

    That's because you can't get more packed than the usual "everybody going" that is standard on weekends.

    Yeah... Heinz is really just HFCS anyway. Nothing like that organic stuff us New Yorkers are accustomed to.
