I just came back from a couple of markets...  
...and amazing how hard it is to find halfway decent produce in Hawaii. :( All I wanted was fresh - it didn't have to be spectacular or anything - I could've lived with fresh. The market that I usually go to right across the street had disgusting produce, so Mark & I had to drive all the way to another more expensive market... :( Can't we get a good market here? Like a Trader Joe's or something?

I guess I have to remember the whole daylight savings time thing when I go into work tomorrow - I must remind myself that the stock market closes at 10am our time and not 11am like it had been... I'm not sure I fully understand the whole concept of daylight savings time - we've never had it here and all it seems to do is give me greater jet lag when I travel... :P

And I've been trying to save money - but, really, surfing theatre message boards does nothing to help me in that respect. :( Just found out that Seth's Chatterbox video tapes are FINALLY available through mail order - so I went over to the site and ordered 3 tapes... Kerry Butler from her "Bat Boy" days, Sutton Foster, and Kerry Butler from "Hairspray"... Ah... so much money to have spent in the span of just 3 minutes, but it's for a great cause and the tapes should be fabulous. I had to restrain myself from buying the Emily Skinner tape - which was pretty hard (and I had to NOT bookmark the page or I'd probably go back in to order it...) I'm pathetic...

What were you looking for? If it's fruits I would suggest Palama Supermarket (the Korean supermarket in Kalihi). Veggies, usually safeway. Daiei always disappoints me in this department even though it's so close to my house. And meats in Chinatown (don't forget to stare at the giant severed pig heads in the glass cases on the way).

Yeah, Safeway usually has the best selection of vegetables - I miss working at my old branch on Beretania right next to the Safeway - that was great. I've never been to the Palama Supermarket, but Mark works in that area - maybe I'll try to get him to stop by one day on his way home from work. :)

And meats in Chinatown (don't forget to stare at the giant severed pig heads in the glass cases on the way).

LMAO! That's one of the reasons I used to be a vegetarian! ;)

Thanks for your suggestions! :)
