Shop til you drop

April 26th, 2003

I realized that there are a few positive things about having to work five days a week – on the weekends we spend way too much money, not to mention eat poorly (we had Chipotle for lunch and now Joe’s having beenie weenies while I eat chili with hot dogs in it).

My goal was to get a new bra, yet somehow Joe is the one who came home with the clothes; three shirts and two pairs of pants, in fact. I did get a nice new pair of gym shoes, and thanks to Sears’ “buy one, get one 50% off”, so did Joe. I don’t care what brand gym shoes I buy, as long as they look good and fit well, but it just so happens I ended up with another pair of Avias. The funny thing about Nike is that their shoes look cooler than Avia, but they don’t feel as comfortable. Plus they cost more.

We also picked up an UPS for my brother so the new computer we’re building him doesn’t get fried. We got it at Circuit City, so I ended up getting some Playstation games for the kids. One is Winnie the Pooh, and the other is Monsters Inc. I felt bad because most of the games I own are just too hard for them, so those should be more fun.

After all that shopping, we went to see Identity. I’m not good with the reviews, so I’ll just say it was good because it had you thinking most of the time. Although I have to say, once again I kinda knew how it would turn out (not completely, but partly).

We went for another neighborhood walk, so be sure to check out the new photo series. I can’t believe I never noticed how cool the trees look when they first start to bloom. Last year I took pictures of them, but not up close. I was missing so much! Photography really opens your eyes to things you’d normally never even notice.

    a) My Avias were my all-time favorite pair of gym shoes. Soo comfortable. I ran them into the ground years ago.

    b) I love that you said gym shoes. I can’t find anyone else outside of Chicago who says that. Not even in the suburbs.

    c) Where in the hell do you live where that’s your neighborhood?! I guess sometimes I forget there’s actually foliage in the city, since I live amongst high-rises and convenience stores. :P
