Late night shopping satisfaction

Better now.
Blew off laundry until tomorrow morning, never did get to the library (or, regrettably, to the Kaiser pharmacy) but I did motor over to Potomac Yards to hit the conveniently located Shoppers Food Warehouse and Harris-Teeter. I think I may have gone a bit overboard, but on the other hand I got some great deals and double value on my coupons. None of those were supposed to be doubled, but I wasn't going to argue with the self-checkout's software.

Aside from the convenience of having the two stores practically on top of each other, both of them had pretty much everything I was looking for, including things which are a little hard to find in the local (Foxchase/Landmark Center) stores - Arnold Brick Oven White bread and HT store brand pina colada yogurt, which the Foxchase store hasn't had in, well, months. Also, while the Landmark Center Shoppers is a pain in the ass to get in and out of, the Potomac Yards store is the second store from the left as you face the river, and the center's layout doesn't force you to come in one way and then go around three sides of a square to get out and get home. The Harris Teeter, on the other hand, has oddly designed underground parking which is nonetheless easy to get into and out of; when you come around the building, you head right out onto South Glebe Road and back toward 395. It's all good.

One of the things I found was the ever-elusive Diet Snapple Green Tea with Mango, which is made of meth, tropical fruitiness, and win. It was on sale for $1.25 at Shoppers, but I managed to limit myself to two bottles, one of which I drank on the way home. So much for an early bedtime.
