Got my suit back from the dry cleaners today. Didn't check it out but I'm sure it's fine. Some Mohammadan owns the place and it seems to be in a ghetto black neighbourhood. Music to Kill Infidels By plays in the shop and next door there's a black barber shop full of loud jive talking. It's not too far, though. Maybe a 10 minute walk from my home.
I was going to stop at that cheap chicken place on the way home but it was closed. Closed at 11.15 on a Saturday? Madness. People want chicken at that time. It's an early lunch.
Maybe go tomorrow. I have some food but not much. And I had to throw out the milk because it had something hard in it. A hard chunk of something. I've never seen anything like this in my life. My milk experiences have all be positive up until today. I guess it's cream or something. I threw it out but not before eating a bowl of cereal first. It wasn't until the second bowl that I thought I should check this milk out more closely because it made a rattling sound. Felt a bit sick afterwards. I guess it's okay, though. It smelled and tasted fine.
It's that damned Sainsburys. They have crap vegetables too. And I bought bacon that expired like the day after I bought it too. Bacon should have expiration dates like a month in advance if not more.
Maybe I could get the vegetables from one of the ethnic shops. Not sure if the milk or bacon would be any better, though. I could walk to Waitrose, I guess, but it's a bit of a walk and I don't want to walk in this heat. There's also an M&S which isn't as far but I've never gone there. Not for food, anyway. I should check it out some day.
There's also a Lidl but I don't go there any more after shockingly bad customer service. Also, their food wasn't good. And have to pay for bags.
So...whatever. There are options. I mean, think about it. In the US, in a small town outside of Chicago, you had one place to buy food and it was probably about a 15 minute walk. About the same as this Waitrose from my home. Yeah, this place was relatively huge to the options I have here but...just the one store. Although...yeah, it was a much bigger store so maybe that makes up for the lack of options. I'm sure the food was reasonably priced. I don't really know.
But anyway, where I'm living now there's a big Lidl, medium Sainsburys, tiny Tescos, big M&S, and big Waitrose. That's pretty good. Plus there's probably ten ethnic grocery stores ranging from Asian, Mohammadan, African, and Eastern European. Won't see that in Hammond. So...good stuff, I guess.
