1. As a lover of mail, I’m always thrilled to open my mailbox and discover something addressed to me. Even better than finding love notes in my mailbox, however, is finding packages in my entryway, and oh man was last week a good one for me.
Yay tax refunds that lead to new toys! I haven’t had a chance to play with either one of them yet, but I’m stoked to finally have a functional vacuum cleaner and a food processor!
I’m also concerned that my excitement over these things means I’m a grown up. Gross.
2. I managed to find myself a date to the Red or White Ball in the most unlikely of places: my hometown! Turns out my best friend from high school was going to be in Chicago that weekend and expected to have nothing to do that night anyway. How serendipitous! Now, however, I’m faced with a much greater challenge: finding a dress that fits my body, my budget, and my timeline. Dress shopping, along with jeans shopping, is my least favorite kind of shopping, and I have “seven” days to find a dress. “Seven” because I won’t have time today, Friday, Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and possibly next Thursday to go shopping (gahhhhh my life. How did I get so busy all at once?)…which means I really have more like two days to find a dress, and I certainly don’t have all of those days to find a dress — I probably have closer to an hour and a half each day. Stress. City. I’m hoping the high pressure situation will force me to be less indecisive, but indecision doesn’t influence whether or not a dress fits, which is my primary concern. Bad news bears.
3. About a month ago or so, I started my third session of hip hop. Though there are a few regulars who’ve been taking class ever since I started, we’ve also got some new faces. Among the new faces:
I kid you not. One of my classmates looks exactly like Justin Bieber. Haircut, earrings, rose tattoo on his leg — it’s all there. So if you’ve ever wanted to meet a major pop star, I apparently have the hookup. I have yet to discover if the guy in my class responds to Justin, though.
What would you most like to spend your tax refund money on?
Know anyone that looks just like a celebrity?
