-At the Wee Historic Beastie today:
Me: Do you know if [swanky restaurant in Middleburg] does gift certificates?
M: *shurgs* I would assume that they do…
Me: I mean, rich people give each other gift certificates too, don’t they?
-Also, I made an amazing discovery at Target today: I DON’T look like a fat cow in skinny jeans! *boggles* I have to admit, this was the first time I’d even been able to bring myself to try a pair on, because I just assumed that they would look horrible on me because I’ve got big hips, a huge ass, and giant thighs. But I’d seen so many other chicks pull them off, that I finally caved and gave the skinny jeans a try. And was amazed at how decent they looked! So now I can add a pair to my “I’m Visiting My Parents in the Sticks for Christmas, and I Want to Impress All the Hicks With My Great Urban Fashion Sense” shopping list. Along with a great pair of pointy-toe stilettos (because those are totally practical for December in South Dakota! :-P). And a new cute carry-on bag…
