So weird question: I've googled but I also want input. What grocery stores are near LAX/Embassy Suites and have a very wide selection of fruit? Like, little as I like it, when I can't get to Central Market I have to resort to Whole Foods for my cotton candy grapes and peach and apricot and berry needs and Whole Foods is like an hour by bus from the hotel unless I can kidnap someone with a car which isn't out of the question but I'm pretty sure that would make a terrible impression on congoers.

IF you don't know what cotton candy grapes are, I am so excited to show you: The Grapery - I've also glutted on the Moon Drops, Tear Drops, and--I think--Gum Drops (not sure) and they're all like how you fantasize grapes are in Narnia or Fillory or something. I'm not kidding; I've been dealing...uh, giving them to people for like ten years now and they never believe me and their expressions at the first bite...and then it's super high grocery bills and no grape regret.

(Cotton Candy Grapes taste like Cotton Candy; Moon Drops are a somewhat like condensed Welch's Grape Juice (I mean when its' still a frozen concentrate) but a little less strong, Tear Drops are lightly sweet and just cool looking, I don't remember Gum Drops which is why I'm not entirely sure I tried those.)

To assure me and [personal profile] aerialiste don't blow our budget on restaurant food, to facilitate convenient snacking, to better have actual, literal meals so we don't die of starvation or scurvy or collapse of dehydration, and because I generally feel better when I have fruit and healthy snacks on hand (therefore feel no guilt when splurging on triple chocolate double brownie somethings, I'm not picky on the 'somethings', multiple), me and [personal profile] aerialiste are going shopping on Thursday for food, and by the way, anyone who wants to join us and is around the hotel, feel free to come!

(Not gonna lie, also to pick up toothpaste, toothbrush, and/or probably a bath poof and deodorant and maybe shower gel?; I have this weird ability to pack them and two or more will vanish the second I get on the plane and back into my bathroom. My superpower is to forever be an improvident traveler.)
