I had to get to the bank before it closed yesterday, so I left school quickly. While I was at the bank, I got some cash. I’m still waiting for my ATM card from my Hawaiian bank, and I’m still waiting for a money transfer to put cash into my Maryland bank. I have no quick access to money right now. Ack!

Since I had a wad of cash, I stopped at the grocery store. Maui does not use plastic bags. They are outlawed. Safeway uses paper bags, but Lauren has sent me some of her collapsable-reuseable bags and I remembered to take one it. I was nervous that I would have trouble packing it, but the checker took it from me and packed it herself. She really knew what she was doing – she got everything in it.
This should keep me alive for another few days.

On my way home, I was surprised to pull up behind this car. Check out it’s tags:
I think they like the Huskers.

Ha! This was right near my apartment. I’ll have to look for them again and try to talk with them some time.

    Hey! It’s your table! And a tablecloth and placemats! Looking pretty fancy there, Mr. Royuk.

    I’m glad about the Chicobag. 🙂 (We are still pretty plastic-bag oriented here, so I like to pack it myself, as it seems to stress out some checkers.) Looking in that bag, I see some soy milk. Is that a dietary change or a financial one? I would imagine milk is super-expensive. I am also curious about the dark green items. Avocados?

    – Lauren, who is nosy about your groceries (and not exactly a Husker. Shhhhh – don’t tell.)

      The people who brought the table also brought a tablecloth and placemats.

      The dark green things are cucumbers. I’ve been eating a lot of stuff out of boxes, so it was nice to get cucumbers, apples, and oranges. The soy milk is just for drinking. I’ve developed kind of a taste for it. It has not replaced milk though. Soy milk is more expensive.

    Thank goodness Lauren sent you those bags….to keep you legal and all.

    Speaking of legal… you got a wad of cash while you were at the bank….I’m assuming you didn’t just help yourself, right?
