In Hedland there is, as is often the case, a perceived inbalance and/or divide between Port (north) and South. Port is seemingly the more wealthy and privileged location.. it has a functioning pool, their library has more books, there is less crime, more grass-lined street, the men are more handsome.. and most significantly, Port has the more superior supermarket.
Port's supermarket is larger, stocks more in their deli (and generally), their food is more fresh, and it has better specials, or so housemate Leah tells me. It's not uncommon to meet someone who lives in South that travels the 15 kilometers across the bridge to shop at this supermarket. I must admit their yoghurt selection has more options, but on the whole South's supermarket is just fine. Infact, I generally save money shopping southside as its not uncommon for their staff to misprice the items and as a result I get them for free (happened three times last week!) The other reason why I like the South supermarket is that their corn is always on sale. I'm not sure who is in charge of the corn logistics, but 9 times out of 10 it's over ordered so they have to reduce the price and flog it off.
Which brings me to the dinosaur connection. This morning my dtail email featured dinosaur corn cob holders. The idea is fantastic. Almost as excellent as plaiting dinosaur bones into your hair!
