I really like the new Duane Reade. That walgreens sucks (the one on astor is much better). Long live chains!

Grieve - That made me laugh out loud! Which, considering I got fired from my job with no warning (much less anything like severance or the owed vacation pay that I was slated for next week), is no mean feat. Thanks!
