|A couple of charming lamps to grace your sitting room|
I had a nice little surprise outing with Samos. I had told him I would be busy that day, but he called again on the morning of anyway, just in case. I realized then that I had made a calendar mistake when turning from July to August, and that I wasn’t busy after all. What fun! We had our favorite Japanese tofu burgers for lunch and then off to junk stores. Samos is on a spending freeze, and showed great restraint. He bought nothing. I am always on a spending freeze, so my willpower was lessened by the quotidian quality of my budgetary issues. I bought a number of useless items, all things to use in the kitchen – so not entirely useless but definitely not needed. Unneeded, but happy making. I won’t even tell you what they are, lest you sneer at my shopping silliness.
|A prie dieu for a material girl??|
These stores are always fascinating with the sometime bizarre items they have to offer. One is forced to speculate as to what sort of person would purchase such horrors. But maybe they (the horrors, not the purchasers) are so horrible that they transcend from horrible to kitch, to camp, to cool. Who knows!

PS I did not buy a lamp or a prie dieu. I wasn't that silly.
