I'm not much of a shopper- until we have a trip to go on. Suddenly I'm in a flurry of retail. The weather is actually going to be quite a bit colder than we anticipated in our next locale, which means coat shopping. The problem is we're in Arizona right now! I walked into a store today and asked, "Do you have coats?" The sales girl responds, "Oh, our jackets are over there." I say, "I saw those. Do you have coats?" She says, "You mean like long sweaters?" I say, "No. I mean coats." She says, "Oh, like blazers?" At that point I decide I better hit the internet at home. But while out we were treated to Christmas songs in all the stores. It's still 85 degrees here during the day and the Christmas music weeks before Thanksgiving seemed a bit much. Although, I did get to hear one of all time favorites, "Do they know it's Christmas?" by Band Aid. It is so perfectly 80's in its inception and execution. I remember watching MTV in high school and saying, "That looks like Bono. Wait, is that Boy George? And Sting? And Bananarama?" I promptly went off to Tower Records to buy the 45 and listened it until my brother declared that he would burn it if he heard it coming from my room one more time. I was around 16 at the time and thought it was genius.
