Gentle Readers and Dear Friends another week passes and we are at a two day break - woo hoo!!!!
Yesterday after work and after dog stuff we ran down to the Tanforan Mall - yep the Mall. Stopping off a Michael's first. I needed a couple of bits for the 4th Blogoversary Prize. There was actually a reason we made the trip to the mall - to buy some new clothes. Now I can wear the same old things for years - as long as its clean, pressed and at hand I really could care less. I have 6 pairs of jeans I rotate through and about 25 or so shirts and about two dozen low rise Converses Chucks (black) and there you go.
My work out fit (in fact it's how I dress everyday) - jeans a solid colour shirt, and Chucks. Fashion statement I am not. Now don't get me wrong - I enjoy Haute Couture and fashiony things, but on me - that ain't gonna ever happen. So after a handful of years everything starts to fade and get a bit worn - so it was off to the Mall to replenish. There is a very specific style shirt I like and both Sears and Jacques Pennay carry them - and there are usually sales going on.... After about 20 minutes total shopping at both stores I had purchased 7 shirts in various colours, two more pairs of jeans and another pair of Chucks and I was set. What sucked was at Sears is I found "my" shirts on sale at 40% off - so woohoo!! When I got to the register there was a revelation - they were not actually on sale - I questioned the shop girl and so off we both went to check this supposed sale rack o'shirts. Upon reaching the rack with the gigantic red 40% off sign it would seem that every shirt on said rack was not on sale but at full price - so I had my "whatchu talkin about Willis" moment. Then the really sweet shop gal said not to worry as the sign should not be there - she was going to give me the shirts at the 40% off as listed - and then she removed the sign. So I would guess that shopping doesn't really suck, but that little hiccups during the shopping suck.
After the traumatic shopping - we headed off to Red Robin - I had delicious patty melt and some peach tea - and found that all was right in the world!!!
Just a quick reminder that the 4th Blogoversary drawing closes tomorrow at 3 PM - if you've not thrown in and wanted to you still have time. Just click HERE and it will take you to the post to enter. I will announce the winner on my 4th Blogoversary, Monday!!
