The women here are beautiful and well dressed. To add insult to injury, there was a Givenchy convention in our hotel this morning. I might as well have been wearing flannel pajamas in the lobby compared to these women! When you go to the mall there is a huge variety of stores also. So many different women's styles to choose from. I could do some serious damage shopping here! The shoes are amazing! Today we went into a children's toy store and found a Fisher Price play phone that speaks Russian when you push the buttons. We immediately loved the idea of that! Then we realized it was $53. You can buy the same toy at Target for $7.99! We are still debating on whether to go back for it. Mark is sold, and I'm thinking all those toys at my house end up broken and in the garbage(not necessarily in that order). I admit it would be really cool to have, especially if it we could keep it for years to come. Oh well, I have 6 days to ponder that one. There is no diet pop, it's all called "light". I like that. Diet is such a negative term! At the mall you can only go up escalators and then you have to walk down the steps. Maybe that's why there's no diet. If you watch CNN day in and day out pretty soon you think the world is ending. I've realized the purpose for Jersey Shore is to distract you from real issues. I prefer MTV's version of the "The Situation". The situation here is that we will be getting S in the morning. Going to bed praying her transition is smooth and not too tramatic for her(or us)!
