Some days you just have to go to Costco. Today was one of those days that also, unfortunately, fell on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Admittedly the store was prepared for the madness with every check stand open. Still, on a "normal" day in excesstown, I'm not a fan of shopping there. I survived with the goods we needed and was promptly rewarded with a washed card, beer from Emerald City Brewing, wine from Bartholomew, and dinner at Urban Enoteca. So, I guess I can't really complain.
