One-Day-Weekend Wonder

When you work in retail, you will find that your definition of weekends is just not the same as it used to be. Today was a Saturday, and miraculously I did have the day off! (Not tomorrow though, I have to open the store at 9am on a Sunday - wooh!) So to celebrate, I had an amazing day of doing absolutely nothing, and it was fantastic!

Part one of the wonderful nothing was watching a movie with my brother Drew and mutual friend Alana. Now, it must be said that our version of watching movies involves a lot of talking and very little actual watching. It's just one of the benefits of being at home and not at the movie theater (where people typically don't appreciat that kind of behavior!) The movie of the day was "Mamma Mia!" and it was... perfect. For anyone who wants to be able to both mock and enjoy their movies, "Mamma Mia!" is the choice for you!

After that, we headed on down to Ulta, followed by Target, followed by Barnes and Noble, followed by home (the ultimate destination.) I bought a few things as late christmas presents to myself/rewards for doing so little shopping lately (wait...) The first item on my list was a new Con-Air Ionic Hair Dryer with a diffuser attatchment, for my poor, suffering hair. Next was a tried-and-true brand of Shampoo and Conditioner, also for the suffering hair. After that, "Mamma Mia!" on blu-ray (the copy we were watching earlier was sadly not mine to keep.) And to finnish the shopping extravaganza, a copy of New Moon for Edie-girl (we're exchanging our christmas presents later.)

All in all, it was the perfect day for me and my tired-ass self. Here's hoping I'm rested enough to wake up for work in the morning! Oh God, I think we're out of coffee...


  1. mamma mia = so freaking awesome. another benefit of watching movies at home is that you can sing along as loud as you wish :) or you can sing louder than pierce's character - who really needs to be drowned out because his singing is kinda terrible.

  2. Hope you had the energy to wake up today. Just to rub it in, I slept in 'til 10. One of the many perks of being unemployed is you get to make your own schedule. ;)

  3. The weekends or holidays do not apply to retailers or restaurant business and I so know what you're talking about.

    All the places you went are my favorites:)

    Nice blog and I like it very much!

  4. thingsandstuf: I feel the exact same way!

    Beelzebub: Thanks, very nice :) But if I was unemployed, where would I get the money for all my presents?

    Maki: Thanks! Glad you liked it.

  5. I need to know your tried and true shampoo/conditioner, please. Like, STAT.

  6. Hello Ambles, Bon Don here. Just lurking found you through My Hair Is Luxurious.

    That sounds like a perfect day off! I've been wanting to see Mamma Mia, Now I totally will!

    Great Blog.

    *Bon Don*

  7. kim: I either use Redken All Soft, or when I don't have as much money to spend (like now), I opt for Loreal Vive Pro Nutri-Gloss (the light pink bottle.) Whatever you do, don't use a combination shampoo/conditioner - those things are crap!


Come on, tell me how you really feel!
