It's a *good* thing

Statia has an interesting neighbor at her new place: "Living a block away from a CVS could be a convenience, or it could be extremely dangerous."

For 7+ years, Rob and I lived across the street from a 24 hour 7-Eleven. Very convenient. Rob was a big fan of those little Drakes Cakes cinnamon topped coffee cakes. I've always had a weakness for the old reliable, Hostess chocolate cupcakes. The ones with the white squiggle across the top.

I was recently wondering why it's called 7-11.

I thought it should be called 24/7, so I went to their web site and found out:

"The name 7-Eleven originated in 1946 when the stores were open from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m."

As I recall, the cupcakes came in second to the Ben & Jerry brownie ice cream things.
