The Krispy Kreme down the road from our apartment (well, about two miles away) is having its grand opening tomorrow. I read a news story saying that Cornell is going to be blocked off for a block or two or three because of all the traffic that is expected. Nobody can go through except for drive-through customers and the handicapped; everybody else has to park a ways away and walk in. And this road closure is expected for AT LEAST A WEEK.

I do NOT understand the allure of Krispy Kremes. They're just donuts. They taste the same as Safeway donuts when left out for an hour. OK, so you get 'em fresh. You can do that at lots of little bakeries all over the place. OK, so you might get a free one while you're standing in line for four hours. Whoopee. How much is a donut, a buck? Ooh, you're saving a whole buck just by standing in line for four hours. I just don't get it.
