Would you likes some almonds and cashews? I have a whole bunch

I have like ten minutes before my mother wrests control of the internet away from me, but ericaplease went ahead and posted her original fic after I said I'd post mine if she would, SO NOW I HAVE TO. Oh no. I am embarrassed. But I promised. So expect that.

For any of you that read that New York Times Article on the Netherlands last week, you know that the shops all close insanely early here. In fact there's one day a week where the grocery store is open past six, so that people can shop after work. It's called Koopavond.

Well, today I discovered that Koopavond is not let's go shopping, oh what fun avond but rather alcoholics-unite-avond. Seriously. The only people in the store were clearly alcoholics. This country is so nuts. Lovably so, but still, NUTS.
