Fun passage from White Noise by Don DeLillo about supermarkets:

Jack Gladney: ''Everything seemed to be in season, sprayed, burnished, bright. . . . The place was awash in noise. . . . The toneless systems, the jangle and skid of carts, the loudspeaker and the coffee-making machines, the cries of children. And over it all . . . a dull and unlocatable roar, as of some form of swarming life just outside the range of human apprehension.''

Murray Siskind: ''Everything is concealed in symbolism. . . . The large doors slide open, they close unbidden. Energy waves, incident radiation . . . code words and ceremonial phrases. It is just a question of deciphering. . . . Not that we would want to. . . . This is not Tibet. . . . Tibetans try to see death for what it is. It is the end of attachment to things. This simple truth is hard to fathom. But once we stop denying death, we can proceed calmly to die. . . . We don't have to cling to life artificially, or to death. . . . We simply walk toward the sliding doors. . . . Look how well-lighted everything is . . . sealed off . . . timeless. Another reason why I think of Tibet. Dying is an art in Tibet . . . Chants, numerology, horoscopes, recitations. Here we don't die, we shop. But the difference is less marked than you think.''

@smrk Definitely worth the read. It's fantastic.

On topic, market wear for me is LL Bean mocs or birks with socks. Sweatshirt with nothing underneath, some sort of pants.

..simply because I felt that I've achieved the perfect balance between comfort and drama. Often when I wear something comfortable I thought, "well this is nice, but nice doesn't cut it.", unless of course I'm just getting the groceries.


emphasis mine (from here). i really want to know what "just getting the groceries" is like for @Rosenrot.

They weren't lying when they said bodega cctv cameras add thirty pounds.

Coming from work hence backpack but other than that it's the usual.
