Help me vanquish a sassy person.

How do I counter this argument? Me: Please do your shopping at independent, local businesses. The mall chain stores do not need your money.

Help me find a clothing website I never bookmarked

Help me find a website I saw a few years ago. It sold smart women's clothing, mostly dresses (and specifically long sleeved dresses), and I remember a major selling point being that the person who set it up (maybe a librarian or academic?) wanted to find clothing for work that didn't require endless layering to look appropriate and modest. The stuff was well made and they didn't have a huge stock (I don't think it was Modcloth). It was perfect for anyone who is sick of having to wear cardigans all the damn time! Sound familiar to anyone?

Peppermint, spearmint, wintergreen, ginger, cinnamon, liquorice, cool honey, but sadly not creme de menthe. One of every kind of Altoids mints.

For a present, I want to buy one of every different flavor of Altoids mints (just the regular size mints, not the gum or smalls). The problem is that they seem to only be sold in bulk. Is there anywhere online that will sell me every variety individually? Or does anyone know a place in the Orange County, CA area that stocks the entire range of Altoids?

This isn't one of the "figure flaws" they list in magazines.

I'm just under 5'5". Unusually (I think?) for someone of average height, I have long legs *and* a long-ish waist. This is possible because the distance between my shoulders and under-arms is, apparently, according to the shirts of the world, unusually short. [more inside]

Sturdy and Steady.

Please give me your suggestions for large, very sturdy grocery/laundry carts. Said cart will have to do duty carrying groceries from my parking space to my apartment (which is across and down the street) but more importantly, it must be able to handle 1-2 35 pound containers of cat litter on occasion, when I need to buy for the boys. Good wheels are a must for when the weather gets snowy, but I do have an elevator (after about 4 steps). Price is not a huge issue, but I would love to keep it under 75$.
