A Ten Weekend

10. Watched Chocolat. (a better movie than the critics led me to believe).
9. Watched Life or Something Like It (an incredibly predictable film).
8. Ate too many Twizzlers while indulging in movie fetish.
7. Sticky Sick Stomach (Should have eaten popcorn to counterbalance the sugary-waxishness)
6. Bought pretty brown (American Eagle) boots for $15!!
5. Bought a little Swingline RED stapler (mini of Milton's)
4. Read French and got a headache (decided to stop and procrastinate)
3. Tried to do math homework on line regression on Excel, but it turns out to be evil--just like everything else that Microsoft makes.
2. Got my tresses pulled by my mother, after pinching my sis's leg during church services (Don't ask)
1. Saw a lady in Wal-Mart with huge, exceedingly ugly, pastel artificial flowers sticking out of her head on clips. Dozens of them. I was waiting in line behind her for about fifteen minutes (thank you lady in front of her with about 40 items in the 20 item line) and I lost count. The faded pinks and crusty yellows were so distracting. Where does one buy such atrosities?

Not that I am saying I am perfect. But the woman really looked as if she stepped out of a faded and moldy copy of The Secret Garden.

I am pure evil. I really am, and I am not proud of it, but REALLY!

Hilarious posting. I can see those flowers! Crazy. (Odd observation: this is the second time I've seen a SHU blogger post a "people are crazy at WalMart" message). Sounds like you had a fun weekend, actually.

America is living at Wal-Mart. My sister goes there at least 4 times a week. We live 5 minutes from one, and that has some bearing on the frequency of her visits, but soon EVERYONE will be. How much retail can we fit in our homes?

"How much retail can we fit in our homes?" you ask. We fit too much retail in our homes is my response to that question, and I know that I am one of the worst shoppers in the world. See I have this little thing called an obsession, and my obsession is with LOTR materials. I have just about anything you can think of in this realm. Just come and take a peek at my dorm sometime. You think my original room was bad. Wait until you see this one!
