Boy did I blow it. I indulged in more than a bit of retail therapy today first with a bout of clothes shopping and then at the biggest Half-Price Books in the freakin' universe.
I hate clothes shopping more than anything ever, but I bit the bullet and dropped a bit of cash on 4 shirts, one pair of denim capris, three pairs of shoes, 4 pairs of earrings, a purse, and a pair of sunglasses. They look a lil sumpin' like this:
Green crocheted top. I can't believe this shit is back.
The edge there is a chocolate brown, v-neck top that makes my ta-tas look like gold (and it goes nicely with my super-red hair), middle is a gawdawful black tee with camo stars (love it!), and the last one is even worse...camo with a silver butterfly in the middle. They're AWFUL, but strangely enough, I still dig 'em.
Three pairs of luscious (cheap) shoes. Click for a bigger pic of my red slippers, black/silver/bronze flip flops, and the green butterfly flip-flops.
And a tan bag with gold threading throughout, black gypsy earrings, and a 3-set of turquoise, green, and white/wood danglies.
On top of all the wearable goodness, I blew the rest of the Half-Price gift card I got for Christmas. I purchased:
Zombie, by Joyce Carol Oates
Heroes and Villains, by Angela Carter
Bet Me, by Jennifer Crusie (hardback, for my keeper collection)
Tell Me Lies, Crusie
The Complete Stories of Zora Neale Hurston
And last, but CERTAINLY not least, we had lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. Mom had fried shrimp, I had fish tacos, and of course we got cheesecake for dessert. She had the dulce de leche caramel cheesecake and I had chocolate peanut butter cookie dough cheesecake. SO GOOD. And they're inhuman-sized pieces. I'm getting all excited just thinking about it. There were leftovers, so I'll be polishing those off later this evening.
Now, it's time to stroke my new stuff and read Call It Sleep.
