    You are crazy to shop; I staying near south coast plaza right now, and there's so much traffic going in and out of that mall! I think I will do most of my buying online and return them in the store after the holidays, when people are at work.. heheh

    Yesterday I did most of my shopping at the grocery store. I bought enough baking supplies to make 4 batches of doggy biscuits. I am giving them away as gifts (and also for my little guy). Today I have to get started on some HUMAN treats :lol:

    I hate crowds too. Sat, I went to Knott's Berry Farm when they were having their Toys for Tots promo. You buy a $10 gift to get in the park & it was the most crowded I've ever been to an amusement park in my entire life. That mks me NEVER want to go to an amusement park on the wknds ever again. I'd rather go M-Th, but since they were hvg that deal, everyone & their grandmother were there, including me. :( It was fun, but I didn't to go on all the rides or shops I wanted.

    BTW, I love Fashion Island in Newport Beach, but I won't be going there during holiday time! :eek:

    They are so useful going down the moutain, you don't have to stop and take your snowboard off to go buy the drinks, you can just drink while you're going down the mountain!

    I am trying to "unpurchase" some pencil sharpeners I bought for my students. They are just little manual ones that look like lightbulbs, but the stupid things were breaking as soon as I handed them out! I had to e-mail the company twice before they even bothered to reply and now we are playing phonetag. They want my cc information so they can reimburse me, but shouldn't they have that information with the records of the order? They also e-mailed me a return shipping label but why? do they really expect me to collect all the sharpeners the kids still have? What about the ones that were thrown away when they broke? Of course their business hours end at 5:30 EST which means by the time I get home they are closed. I have called twice and e-mailed once today, but when I got home there was a message on my machine saying "Since I haven't heard from you we are closing this (what???) but if you still want to reimbursement you can call and we will help you." Seriously, I have, twice, and left messages both times, and you can bet I will NEVER do buisness with this company again. All this because of stupid defective crappy plastic student gifts the cost $10. I am so stinking upset right now.

    My mom & I went shopping today. My mom & I got 6 pairs of shoes (4 for her, 2 for me).

    One pair were Aravon brand. The other pair I got, isn't normally my style at all, but I'm willing to try something different (got it in the orange, store didin't have blue):

    I bought some books from Amazon today for a child I interviewed for a college assignment the week before last. I asked how many books he had at home ,and he was so proud that he has three whole books! Really, he was beaming. Three books is all. :(

    My sister called while I was ordering them and I told her about the boy and his three-book collection and she didn't think anything of it, but if she could have seen his eyes she would have realized how sad it is.

    1 year Disneyland passes for my husband and I. We never splurge and we hardly ever shop for ourselves, so we spoiled ourselves a bit. :)

    I'm rethinking the two tops I purchased for going out purposes. The blue one looks great, except that it's too tight. There's my incentive to get back on the diet bandwagon. The pink one looks nice, but I just can't figure it out! The neckline literally plunges down to my cleavage, so you'd think a cami would take care of the problem. But no, the material is sheer enough that if I wear a white cami under the pink, you can totally tell where the cami ends and my jeans show through. I am so fed up that I'm ready to give it to goodwill. Apparently many people were stumped because I went back to the store and found a ton of these shirts on clearance.
