I took Evan to the mall yesterday. He needed to get his cell fixed. God knows what he’d do without text messaging.
I wanted to show you the horror that is my child in public. He loves his pants long and, even though he covers his drawers with his shirts, I KNOW what’s under those shirts. I coerced him to lift his shirt to show you! Amazing. What a skinny little thing!
While we were at the mall (Bridgewater Commons) I found a few things that I thought you might be interested in.
Take a look at what was in the J.Crew window…
Then, while Evan was trying on shoes I found these patchwork Converse shoes in brown and in pink.
I loved the white on this blue top and it inspired me to a two color appliqué.
Then, look at this (speaking of embellishment) look how easy a running stitch with a clear sequin can make your bland fabric shimmer. It’s really easy to do and will really add a kick to your quilting projects.
I loved the colors of this bright little skirt. Of course this is a size zero. It could look like the Amazon Jungle in a normal size.
And, punkins, this is what’s new in tween wear. Apparently clothes to hide a baby bump. These were in the window of Limited Too. Hideous for everybody but the preggers 15-year-old. Inspired by Jamie Lynn Spears, no doubt.
I bought a few Yankee Candles that were on sale and one that wasn’t. Shit, they’re expensive, even on sale! I bought Egyptian Cotton World, Stargazer Lily, Cottage Breeze, and Midnight Jasmine. Oh boy, Pickle Road will smell like a whore house!
Speaking of whorehouses, last year, for my birthday, Jeff and Evan bought me a $100 gift certificate for a massage for what I thought was the very nice massage center in Chester, NJ. Of course, Jeff found a massage place that had just opened behind the toy store in a strip mall — and not the one I was thinking of. I never went because 1. It wasn’t the place I wanted and 2. It looked like a front for a massage parlor (Poor Jeff – he never thinks of these things).
Well, they were shut down recently. Yup. Prostitution. Can you imagine me on the table when it was raided! LOL I would have had to murder Jeff! What’s worse, the girls would have HATED me. They’d really have to give a massage!
I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU
You know, are you guys being accosted by Dead-Sea-Salt slinging, kiosk workers at your local malls? These fricking idiots are relentless. Everytime you walk by, they jump out at you. The one here is called NATURE’S BEST but from what I’m reading on the internet, they are called all kind of brands, at mall kiosks, and have been linked to possible spy rings to illegal immigrant trafficking, and more. All you have to do is GOOGLE, “ Dead Sea Salt, Kiosk.” You’ll be surprised what comes up several pages in. I sure was.
A lot of people like the products. But I’ll tell you this, these Dead Sea slinging idiots are the most aggressive, rude and arrogant group of people I’ve ever come across…and, according to the net, it’s like that in every mall where Dead Sea kiosks are found.
If I wanted to be approached and followed and called out to, I’d go to a outdoor flea market, not a top-priced mall. I hate it. Everytime I pass the kiosk, I get called to or approached and I’m a fat ugly old man. I may boycott Bridgewater Commons Mall. If the malls can’t control their kiosk stalls or turn a blind eye to how they’re run, then I’ll go somewhere else.
Bye babies….off to Ontario! xoxom
