Oh, the convenience of it all

I'm not one to rush out to the store to hoard milk and bread just before a snowstorm, but I just so happened to run low on milk this evening. It wasn't that bad this time around though. Unlike some of the snow scares in the past, there weren't any milk mobs and the stores were still well-stocked.

Anyway, I went to see the new convenience store up the street. It's part of the Exxon gas station that closed for renovation a few months ago. Then when it reopened a few days ago, it had an "On The Run" store. It's not a bad store. They have an adequate selection of bagels and wraps. I noticed that some of the food items were from the deli / pizza place in Park Ridge. So I got the milk from the fridge and brought it to checkout. Then the cashier couldn't count the change because she had only nickels and dimes, but no quarters. So she let the store manager take care of it. *headsmack*

My opinion? It's okay, but it's no Wawa.

From thefridayfive:

1.) Do you believe in God or a higher power?

2.) Are good and evil just concepts, or real powers in the universe?
Those are descriptions of the manner in which people treat other people. On the scale of the universe, that's nothing.

3.) What is your view on forgiveness?
Sure, why not? But only if there is acknowledgement of fault from the person to be forgiven. Otherwise, there is nothing to forgive.

4.) Do organized religions do more harm than good?
Extremist movements aside, there is plenty of good from organized religion. Religious community is a large part of the lives of many people and the social benefits derived from that community are significant.

5.) If you had a day to spend playing God, what would you do?
Try to make a rock so heavy that I can't lift it. :)

From fridayfiver:

1. Can you dance?

3. Tell us about a dream you remember.
I'm surprised didn't remove this website yet.

4. Do you live with anyone, or do you live by yourself?
By myself.

5. When is the last time you bled from an injury?
Recently? I scraped my arm against a rock a while back, but I don't think there was much bleeding.
