I’m getting ready to go out, listening to Rihanna and JT on Rhapsody. Honestly, I don’t want to go out. I just want to sit at home, do some more laundry, write in my blog, and continue reading The Bonfire of the Vanities which is our seventh book club book (I picked it!). But I’m never going to meet my husband sitting at home. Just kidding. I actually left my place this morning to start my day and realized how very happy I am 🙂
Anyone can take one look at my closet and know I’m the last person who needs more clothes, but I felt like shopping today. And my paycheck kicked in on Friday. So I headed to my closest shopping area–The Fillmore–and happened upon a two-month old store. It’s new to San Francisco, but the designer Calvin Tran has a store in NYC and Chicago. Perfect, my three favorite cities. A dress fanatic, I wanted to buy ALL the dresses on the rack. All the pieces are one-size-fit-all, although if you are not petite and thin, the clothes are not going to work.
I swear, I have found my new favorite clothing store/designer. I think he specially-designed the apparel for me. They’re funky pieces that can be tied lots of different ways. The salespeople spun me around, tied knots here and there…I felt like a runway model. Besides, they were delighted to help me because I was the only one in the store and I think they found their perfect fit. As with all boutiques, high price point. I’m lucky I liked the cheapest of the things I tried at $169. Gulp. So I bought it and that was the end of my shopping day.
Spent time with Therese and Dominic. Watched the Blue Angels soar above the UCSF parking garage. All the little ones (Dominic and his two little girlfriends from the apartment complex) kept pointing, “Pwane, pwane…ayyypwane.” Then I hung out at their place, reading with Dominic on the couch while my sister took advantage of the time to do some house cleaning.
Before going to the gym (and spending two hours watching the season finale of Top Chef), I went to Lucky’s and bought 34 (I just now counted my receipt) Lean Cuisines and a bottle of soy sauce. I know I don’t know how to cook. It sucks. I’m embarrassed. Believe, I am. So I’m going through the checkout line quite embarrassed that my cart is practically full of this stuff–and that’s it. One of the Lucky’s workers enters my line with a sandwich. One single sandwich. He’s obviously trying to pick up on me or something. He laughs, “Do you have enough soy sauce for all those Lean Cuisines?”
OK, that heckled totally pissed me off. Then the guy who’s my checker continues, “Do you even have enough freezer space for all this stuff?”
I’m so pissed off. What happened to customer service? SHUT THE FUCK UP. I don’t need the commentary.
That’s probably the one blip in my day. But otherwise it’s been pretty entertaining for a day where I didn’t have a single thing scheduled. Now, I am off for a drink!!!
