When I first heard Colbie Caillat‘s “Bubbly,” I kind of thought, ugh – another pop princess wannabe. Her next song, “The Little Things,” which will be included on the Cities 97 Sampler, Volume 19 CD (available on Nov. 15), has a bit more meaning and shows Caillat’s vast talent.

But of her songs getting airplay, “Realize” grabs me more than all the others. I think you’ll see why…

Lyrics

Take time to realize
That I am on your side
Didn’t I, didn’t I tell you

Take time to realize
That your warmth is
Crashing down on me
But I can’t spell it out for you
You no it’s never gonna be that simple
No I can’t spell it out for you

If you just realize
What I just realized
That we’d be perfect for each other
And we’ll never find another
Just realize
What I just realized
We’d never have to wonder
If we missed out on each other now

Take time to realize
Oh oh I’m on your side
Didn’t I, didn’t I tell you
Take time to realize
Oh oh I’m on your side
Didn’t I tell you

But I can’t spell it out for you
No it’s never gonna be that simple
No I can’t spell it out for you

If you just realize
What I just realized
That we’d be perfect for each other
And we’ll never find another
Just realize
What I just realized
We’d never have to wonder
If we missed out on each other, but

It’s not the same
No it’s never the same
If you don’t feel it too
If you meet me half way
If you would meet me half way
It could be the same for you

If you just realize
What I just realized
That we’d be perfect for each other
And we’ll never find another
Just realize
What I just realized
We’d never have to wonder

If you just realize
What I just realized
If you just realize
What I just realized

Oh, oh, we missed out on each other, now
We missed out on each other now
Yeah

On Target

Target corporation is based right here in Minneapolis, and yet conversations with friends, family and co-workers often go something like this…

“I love my new neighborhood’s Super Target!”

“Oh really, you have a Super Target? Mine is just a Target Greatland.”

“I wish we had a Super Target in my town. All we have is a Wal-Mart and it’s not so nice.”

“Well, my Super Target has it all. I could easily spend $200 there every time I walk through the door.”

“So what’s the difference between a regular Target, a Greatland and a Super Target?”

The answer is quite simple. Super Target has it ALL. From deoderant to shoes to a full-line grocery store, to a full-service pharmacy, as well as Starbuck’s and Pizza Hut built into the store, Super Targets are designed as a one-stop shop for home needs. It will also include large seasonal floor space with elaborate displays at Halloween and Christmas. Here is a photo of the Super Target that is within walking distance of my home. My daughter works the Starbuck’s inside this location. It just opened on Oct. 9, along with four other new Super Targets in the Twin Cities metro area. That is 750,000 square-feet of new retail space people!

Super Taraget

A regular Target store is about half the size of a Super Target and carriers just basic department store items: clothes, office supplies, some electronics, etc. A Target Greatland is right in the middle in terms of size and inventory. Some grocery items are carried including milk, and the store also features a food counter.

Now you know the difference between the various Target options. And if that’s not enough, Wiki has a great page on Target including its stores and dominance in retail.

Happy shopping!
