An amusing story about a modern day pirate who shopped at the same Trader Joes I used to shop at in Emeryville. It's a nice enough store but ridiculously expensive and so precious. I shopped for their excellent Famous Grouse Scotch which they were giving away. I also bought some of their wine. It was a nice enough store and best of all, I could walk there and back in less than 30 minutes. Oh, and Borders was right across the street.
