Better watch out, Jay. Over in my neck of the woods, we've nicknamed CostCo the "hundred dollar store" because that amount is the amount you end up spending pretty much every time you go in there, regardless of what you go in there for to begin with. Sounds like you've got a similar problem with Building 19, to wit: there's an overwhelming force generated by that store sucking you inside like a vortex and then there's that irresistable pull as your wallet leaves your pants pocket.

Wow! You like Angel too?

Like I tell my wife, it's much more believable than Buffy (which isn't saying much).
