Welcome to Empirical Purple
A blog by Simon Brady to cover a surprisingly wide range of geekiness, in a combination that no-one else does quite the same way. Probably. Either that, or it'll just be Simon talking about the likes of Football (usually the Soccer variety), PC & Tabletop Gaming, WWE, Movies, Music and occasionally even my actual job of Graphic Design, depending on what I'm up to in the world.

What it does have, besides two banks at the entrance, is a Spinneys. Spinneys is a supermarket that imports British goods for consumers in the Middle East, and stocks Waitrose products (yes, I am apparently going up in the world by now shopping at Waitrose).
It's a bright, clean, well laid out store in the Western style, where you get hit with fruit and veg and Deli counter as you enter. All the other supermarkets - Carrefour, Lulu, etc. - have random things when you enter like electronics, clothes and toys, but Spinneys has everything where you'd expect it.
Except for pork.
