*Gasp!* Trina bought a WHAT???
Perhaps the worst time for me to shop are the times when I really don't have a set shopping agenda. Today was one of those times. Merely going into Walmart for some milk and cream, I ended up finding some pajamas and a robe for my Italy trip. Oh, and some shirts. And a Gameboy Advance SP. And some anti-noise headphones (reasonably priced, I thought). But the real shocker of the outing was when I bought a skirt! Me???? A skirt?

People who know me best know just what a shocker this is. I am not a dress or skirt person. Jeans, shorts, slacks if I have to. That's it. But for the Italy trip, I'll need to be dressy from time to time, and this is a skirt that's light, wrinkled already, and purple. I got 2 tops (also purple) to go with it, so that gives me two dressy outfits. With my Chacos on, no one ever need know that I'm not a dressy kind of gal. Of course, for most of the trip, I'll be the typical American Tourist. :-)

So anyhoo, my $2 milk turned out to cost me a hell of a lot more money. But I got lots of cool things in the process! (And even a skirt!!!)

PS - a very happy birthday to our own drake57!

A skirt? Who are you and what have you done with Trina?

Meanwhile... I need your home and cell phone numbers, dear. Lost my phone in Chicago, had to replace it. Need to reconstruct my phonebook.

I did have a skirt comment, but that random Sylv pic stole my brain. So I quickly made an icon of it so I could oggle it more :D

Oi! You there, the biped with taste. I've been sitting down and squishing my brainules for a good question I should ask of Penguin Man if I get the oppertunity at the upcoming stage show, and would like your opinion. At first I was going to ask about almost being cast as Bilbo (OooOh that would have been great...) but decided not to. So, I thought a bit more. Percy James Patric Kent-Smith to Sylveste McCoy, he's probably been asked about a million times. But what about Sylveste McCoy to Sylvester Mcoy? What do you think - should I ask why he added the "T"? Or do people already know... Mnnn... Any suggestions are welcome :D

>< Why did I say "t" when I meant "r"? Sorry. Brain still sleeping. *bing*

I've gotten more into wearing skirts as I've gotten older, especially in the summer. They're a nice alternative to shorts and can be cool and comfy while not revealing as much of my legs.
