Shopping, Quietly

My feelings about shopping are rather complicated. (Slight background, along with the history of Waterford's Crystal Mall, here.) I sometimes love it, though only in certain circumstances. Unless I have to do it, and then I hate it.

I've been told I'm good at it, which is nice, I guess, but if the stores don't have what you need it doesn't matter how good you are.

Also it would be nice if I could be good at something that paid me money, rather than the reverse.

In any case I am always looking for places to shop where I can usually find what I need, but even if I can't, the experience is at least pleasant rather than stressful and depressing.

And in the Quiet Corner, a few of those places are Silver Circle and Martha's Herbary.

And, I don't write about food very much, because a) I'm not much of a foodie and b) if I did the comments would fill up with stuff like "Oh I've seen you, chubby, and let me tell you, the last thing you need is more food!" But if you're already up in the QC (that is not an actual expression, to my knowledge) Bill's Bed and Breakfast - which is not a bed and breakfast - sells the best muffins in, well, a seriously long distance.
