It’s 1:02 AM and I’m really loving the time. Not because it’s in chronological order… but because it represents my birthdate… January 02 (01/02). I’m sitting in an
wannabe Irish pub right now listening to a sole man playing a song we all know (that I can’t name) on a guitar. He is so off key. The waitress just asked for my order and I asked for the wine list. She says, “we have nothing special… just white, red, and pink.” I chuckle. I’m at such a classy place. She proclaims that the Pinot Grigio is phenomenal. I don’t know if I trust her. She just listed wines by color… not names… I told her I would take the Pinot. I have just had a glass or Malbec before showing up here.
is was October 21,2011. I have had one of the best nights since Johanna has been here. We went thrift shopping today for pieces for her Halloween costume. She wants to be the white swan. We were able to find a base dress slip for $3.99. At the thrift store I started chatting it up with the woman behind the accessories counter. This thift store was selling VINTAGE Valentino shoes for $40. Oh wait… I forgot to mention that it was 30% off on all accessories and shoes today at that thrift store. The shoes actually were $28! Where the hell are you going to find a place selling vintage Valentino shoes for that little?! She pointed out the flaws of the shoes. I dismissed the flaws of the shoes. Why? Mainly, to the untrained eye there was none. For the things that I saw (cuz I pay attention to detail) was that the heel bottom may have needed to be redone. This would have cost a cobbler pennies on the dollar to fix. The shoes were worn less than 10 times. That’s an overestimate.
Pause… I just took a sip of this wine… maybe it’s the fact that I just drank Malbec… but this Pinot Grigio taste like Moscato. That’s what I get for drinking wine at an Irish bar.
Back to the topic. So after that I saw a pair of Salvatore Ferragamo shoes and explained to her how fantastic they where. She comes into my personal space like she’s my dealer and I’m a crackhead. “You have a great eye.” I just smile. “I have a Marc Jacobs scraf here” she whispers. I was unimpressed. Yes, Marc Jacobs is a cool name… but I’m not a label buyer. I buy based on quality. She then ends with, “…the scarf is only $1.99.” I told her to shut the fuck up. Remember it’s 30% off on all accessories. The scarf ended up being $1.39.
Don’t be jelly. =)
Really don’t be… this wine is not good and they aren’t serving food anymore. I haven’t eaten for 13 hours. I’m starving.
I know I haven’t had a blog on in 10 days.
I can’t blog about life if I don’t live it. Meanwhile… below are pics from Texas/OU weekend and I will have more pics up as this weekend progresses.
Zombies by the Cranberries is playing right now. I LOVE this song (see above).
The internet connection is not working in here either. Hopefully this will be posted by 3 AM today.
Have a save weekend.
