10 best Supermarkets

Really? That doesn't bother me and it's certainly not the only grocery store I've experienced it at.

Lol, yes I never have a problem with Harris Teeter's self check out, but then again, I never have a prob finding a regular check out with more than a 2 customer deep line either.

That's great. Not so is the case with my local Safeway, lol. It's usually only one express lane, 2 at the most.

BOGO's -- how do they work where you are?

I know you've mentioned having Harris Teeter in your area, and at least at every Harris Teeter I've been to, their BOGO's will allow you to receive half off just one item.

Omg, yes! The service at both of these store just sucks. If you can find a nicely renovated Giant I'd pick that over a Safeway any day for quality of product, but still. And really, why doesn't Safeway have any self check-outs?

how do you store your glasses/stemware?

Same with my Mother. I still shutter a little when a guest in my house decides to be helpful and put away dishes for me and I open the cabinet later to find the glasses bottom up!! Ohh the nerve, lol.

how do you store your glasses/stemware?

Bottom down because I have slight OCD and don't like the thought of the rims of the glasses touching anything, and yes i do eat at restaurants and probably subject myself to way worse everyday. I have enclosed cabinets and my glasses get used often enough that dust is not an issue.

Do you wonder why the Chow site stinks?

None taken. It's all dirt off my shoulder around here anyways. Glad to know you have a sense of humor, though!

Lol, well no I actually did not see that movie but maybe I need to. I generally live under a rock when it comes to movies.

I'm sorry you don't like what I ordered, but keep your thoughts to yourself

I just answered similarly without seeing your reply first. :)

I'm not easily offended so a friend expressing their opinion and telling me they personally don't like something I order or even a simple "I don't know how you can eat that, I hate clam sauce" would be fine with me, but to go on and on about it would just be annoying. I don't go out to dinner with friends to hear their opinions of what I choose to eat the whole time.

To answer the second part, no, we should not give a shit about what people think about what we eat. To each their own. If you enjoy it, eat it.

In Your Opinion, What is the Best Thai Restaurant in Northern VA?

I'll have to see if I can get around to trying it. I'll admit I'm a little lazy when it comes to traveling for food, even if it is good.

Request for mini reports week ending March 23

I just noticed this place today when I made my first visit to Sisters Thai since it is right next to it and was wondering how it was. Thanks!

In Your Opinion, What is the Best Thai Restaurant in Northern VA?

So I tried Sisters Thai in Old Town Fairfax today for the first time. I only got Drunken Noodles to go, so my review might be a bit limited. First off, I thought the place was very cute and the women who got my order was very nice. I also thought the drunken noodles were excellent. Here's what I didn't like. The portion!! It was so small. I'm not sure if this is because it was the lunch portion or what, but my gosh. Even for the lunch portion it was still $9 before tax, which is about what I pay for the same thing anywhere else for double the amount of food. This is the only thing that would make me think twice about visiting again.

Supermarket pricing.......can someone explain this to me?

Here I go again, but the one thing I love about my local Harris Teeter is that for their BOGO sales if you don't want 2 of something you can buy just 1 and it will ring up at half price instead.

My local Harris Teeter has them at at $1.99/lb everyday sold at the meat counter, so you can get that price for as little or as many as you want. I love it since I live alone and usually only want a smaller amount.

I haven't been to any either. I guess I need to get out more! :p

Paula Deen's latest headlines......and this is just bad business

Well they did at least give out severance. That's a lot more than most restaurants that close abruptly do.

How often do you drink alcoholic drinks?

At the least, 3 times a week. At the most, generally not exceeding 5. If I'm on vacation, however, it's usually every night.

Diet Soda that Sh*t is going to kill you....especially if you are a woman.....

I actually drank water the whole time just because I was working long hours. I'm almost certain they served diet soda, and I know the convention center sold diet soda. I saw plenty of people drinking diet soda while I was there, lol.

Diet Soda that Sh*t is going to kill you....especially if you are a woman.....

Well I consume at least 1 Diet soda a day and I am in good health and not even close to obese. So in short, whatever! These diet soda studies always drive me nuts, and then since they started publishing them I'm always encountering an over weight person who tells me (while sipping their regular soda) how diet soda is so much worse for me than regular. Like sure, whatever makes you feel better about drinking your regular soda.

On a semi-related note, this study was apparently presented this past weekend at the Amerucan College of Cardiology's Annual Meeting. They are one of our clients and I was at the meeting working. :)

Lol, I have not had the pleasure of meeting her yet, but I will keep that in mind for when I do. :) I'm in Northern VA, so I've experienced the hellish never-ending Winter that has affected so many, but temps seem to be on the up this week, so I'm hoping it continues.
