valentine's day!

So I started out the day by setting out a-shopping. I got another of those awesome coupons from Express so I spent $22 and got a skirt and 2 shirts. I also got purple hair dye, so there will be pictures of that soon.

Then it was off to the Verizon store. I need a new phone. It's been over 2 years, and my current phone decided that it's done - the "display" doesn't exactly "work" anymore. The V store had more people in it than I've ever seen in my life. I wandered around a bunch, playing with random phones until they called my name. I go talk to this lady, and she turns out to be more interested in selling me "accessories" than answering my questions about a new phone. Hey lady, I DON'T NEED OR WANT A CAR CHARGER! I don't care that you're running a special, and here's why: never have I been in a position that I couldn't charge my phone with the regular AC adapter. Also: I don't own a car. Hey, why don't you bring it up again. Do I need a car charger? Only $30? Wow, awesome. Now I'm walking out of the store because if I don't, someone will end up getting stabbed with the heel of my boot, and it won't be me.

Then we decided to go somewhere to eat, what with it being Valentine's Day (and tax season) and all. We tried Outback, which is conveniently enough located across the street from the mall. Then there was an hour and a half wait. So we went to Cheeseburger in Paradise which was not busy, and I got the best mix of chicken salad and fruit salad ever. Yum.

Then we stopped by a liquor store and picked up some Rum, some Jack, and a 2-liter of cherry coke. (Btw, I have partaken in the aforementioned, so in case this post makes no sense... whatever)

i posted on facebook, but i'm looking at the env2, too. verizon better frickin' not be busy when i go in tomorrow to get the hands-on experience. i hate shopping as is.
my v-day has been pretty uneventful. slept late (well, got up at 9, crawled back into bed because s was still groggy & slept until 1).
glad you had good food & good shopping!

that's the touch one? i can't get that with my plan (i don't have a data package). also, my bro got that one & had to return it because it didn't recognize his big dumb fingers when he pushed the screen. it looks nice, though! i just don't want to pay more than i already am for my plan.

It's got touch and a qwerty keyboard. I won't be ab;e to use the internet because that's not in my plan either. But this way when I can afford to upgrade my plan, I won't need a new phone.

I was just about to tell you to get one online so you don't have to deal with the sales people but you beat me to it......cell phones! What the hell did we do before then?

You make pretty good sense for a drunk chick.
