Another Weekend at the Pupstead

So what do I with no one to hang with? I decided to tackle the madness that is the Weekend Mall!! Dum Dum Dummmmmmm..

I don’t tend to go to the mall very often, and when I do it’s usually during the weekdays when the crowds are smaller. I’m not sure what got into me besides thinking it would be a cool place. Not cool like radical or narly, but temperature wise. It’s been over 100-degrees the last few days, and my cheap ass isn’t keeping the air on very high. So off to the mall.

I have a problem with buying stuff. Many of you know this. Even things I want I’ll talk myself out of. I’m very bad about buying stuff. However, if I am able to make myself buy one thing, however small, then the wallet’s open. It’s open season time.

So I saw a pair of pants at the Banana (Republic) that I couldn’t resist (nice AND like 70% off). Huge discounts are the antidote to my non-buying-ness. I needed them for work. It was on now. Let the shopping begin!! I ended up with a big o’ bag of stuff. I’m expecting a call from my credit card company any minute now to make sure someone hasn’t stolen it.

While wandering around the mall, I was observing the people around me. As making up stories about other people is a favorite pastime of mine.

One example I can think of right now: See that couple over there? The lady thinks the guy is totally cheating on her and she wants to get one more big spending spree out of him before she leaves. But really, the reason he’s not been interested in her in the bed room and having these mysterious meetings is that he is doing chemo and he doesn’t want to tell her and worry her as his chances of recovery is very small. Look at her snide smile thinking she’s getting away with free stuff. Bitch!

Ok, so I made that up, and it’s terribly morbid, but there were other ones that were more interesting and elaborative and happy.

Shut up, I know I’ve got issues.

So I got out of the mall with moderate damage, and decided to go to Whole Foods. In case you don’t have one by you, it’s a great grocery store that has mostly natural and organic food. Everything is delicious there but crazy ass expensive.

The question here is. Why can’t I leave that place without buying over $50 worth of stuff? Sheese. Do you know how much grocery I can get at a regular grocery store with $50?! But it’s sooooo good. Well worth it as I feed my Guacamole addiction.

On to Sunday.

Even with the temperature being over 100 degrees, I thought it wouldn’t be that bad to go out and run around playing ultimate. Goodness was that a bad idea.

Strangely, there were also 3 other people who thought that it was a good idea to tempt heat stroke. We played a smaller version of ultimate. I lasted all of 20 minutes or so. After one long run, I actually threw up a little. Yea, that was gross and I had to stop.

I’m watching the Dido Live DVD I bought myself earlier today. She’s freaken brilliant. Not only is she wonderful to hear and look at, but she talks a lot about drinking in her spare time. Cheers to you.

I’ll leave you with one of my favorite lyrics from her.

“… And if you find one day, find some freedom and relief
With this freedom maybe, maybe you will find some peace and
With this peace baby, I hope it brings you back to me…”

Bring me home. Take me home.

Anyway, on to another fun exciting week! Maybe I’ll get to see Gwar tomorrow night!

Happy Monday Everyone!!
