Why the economy sucks
August 9, 2005 § 3 Comments
Taking Polichick’s advice, I made an effort to help our slumping economy on Day 8 by doing what Americans do best: shop!
I was completely prepared to spend, spend, spend, my excuse being that I needed cute new work clothes. I mean, you have to spend money to make money, right? So I head up to the shopping mecca of Buckhead for the afternoon and, to my horror, find nothing. Well, that’s not exactly true. I did find the "latest" in fall fashion, but I have to say there’s no doubt in my mind why the economy sucks.
This would totally be cool, you know, if I wanted to be a 19th century hooker.
They’re pink plaid elf shoes! Elongated pointy shoes are perfect for my size 11’s.
Almost every tank top I saw had sequins all over it. It was like a fucking kindergarten art class.
As the girls from Threadbared would suggest, crochet is just wrong. So is wearing a sweater 10 times smaller than your size.
All I can say is that I tried. Really.
