Where Is My Mind? - Pixies

Definitition of "insanity" by Albert Einstein: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

This is how I feel about malls lately. Poor selection. Being lied to by sales assistants who tell you you are "killing it", when you know you look like a beached whale. Seeing the same boring cuts in a variety of terrible colours.

You see, I have badun-a-dunk. Also known as junk-in-the-trunk, less eloquently referred to as "lady lumps". I cover them accordingly. Never will I suffer from muffin top or pants that fit too small in the thigh. I'd rather spend a small fortune at Outnet.

And spend I did. Winter is coming. I can't wear dresses to work forever! The top pair are Alexander McQueen, the middle Vivienne Westwood and the last Maharishi. I know they won't all work and I'll end up with one or two pairs at most. And while they will be expensive I think that they'll last me for 2-3 years and I won't have to go through this tedious exercise in patience and persistence again soon. Plus, when I think about the gas I save and the precious time not wasted sorting through piles of crap, I smile. It is very much worth it.

I should open a law firm in "justifications". I'd make millions.

And the justifications begin....we are masters of the craft.

Speaking of sales assistant. Don't forget this conversation taking place at at some hussy shoe store.

Scene: Me trying on a funny looking pair of shoes, that basically looked like oversized baby shoes.
Me: (looking down at feet) Naaaah, I don't think so.
Sales girl: No, you look cute! Like pocahontas!
Me: (lifting one eye brow in disbelief) I think I look like a horse.
Sales girl: You can pull it off!
Me to Aja: I pull of the horse look?

I was totally going to make mention of that in a later blog post, horsegirl.

That is one of my favourite sayings of all time! I use it all the time in all sorts of arguments ;-)
