on your marks...
So after an absolutely stellar shopping fix (heaven) in which I scored $929 worth of suits, shirts and skirts from the Table 8 and Portmans outlet stores for only $419, I feel I am ready to embark on my next challenge as Communications Manager this morning.
I mean, yanno. It was necessary. Dressing the part is half the battle.

Wow. The election is over. Time for some linky love. Must be decomposing. And why would you want a new one? Oh yeah something about filling the holes in the swiss cheese. (Link from SondraK.) Just can't drive 55. Vive...

Nothing can lift your spirits like a wonderful shopping trip! Knock 'em dead!!
Snarg, MT ate my comment!
Awesome, nothing helps the spirits and sets the mood like a great shopping spree!
I know you'll knock 'em dead!
Snarg three times, I guess it just waited a while before it burped it. Blef.
I shopped til I dropped today, too. Wonderful, ain't it?
I love this holiday skin. Heeee!
No post shopping damage pics? Aww.
BTW did you put up the new skin already? I thought we'd be in sync on our "unveiling"...
You're right - dressing the part is half the battle. You'll do fabulous! Have fun & Good luck!
You can't possibly be asked to go to work without propper new clothes, make-up products, shoes, accessories, and spa trips to make you feel as fabulous as you look!
Hello! Those are needs!
[checks conversion rate]
You spent $561 US
aw thanks Rose! I got 3 times the lovin' :).
Funky: how did you find m y X,as skin? ;) Daniel darls, I promise I didn't unveil it yet, I have another skin for November still to unveil yet! So yes, i think we should 'co-unveil' our naughty Xmas skins.
glad you agree yaya :).
Gweny: Hello! You're absolutely right! Which is why I also got a pedicure and acrylic nails too :). oh dear.
Harv: *lol* no I didn't hon! I spent $420 AU. The aussie dollar buys about 68 US cents right now, so that works out to about $250 - $270 US, without a calculator?!
I am late to say congrats but good luck with your new job - hope it turns out to be everything you want it to be.
Repeat after me:
My clothes rock.
My writing rocks.
Now say about 3-4 more times, and you'll be great. Good luck, babe. I so believe in you.
Gotta stop smoking crack before I research exchange rates :-)
that is a lot of $$$ on clothes. i don't know if i could do it. thank god my girl works at my favorite place to shop...it's all about the discount baby!!!
you are going to look great and what a deal that you got for those clothes :)
Let me guess - you're too busy returning all the clothes you just bought to do any blogging, right? :-)
nothing like a little retail therapy. it never fails to perk me up.
good luck on your new job hon!
Only a woman would believe spending $400 on clothes to be justified ;)

help a girl out?
Are any of my esteemed US peers willing to help me out on an eBay auction pretty please?
I'm just DESPERATE for a copy of the Vertigo Tarot deck, as a character from the Vertigo Universe is the inspiration for my screen-name goldie. However they only come up uber-rarely, and in this auction, he's only posting to the US. I've emailed him to no avail. Meanie.
So is anyone keen to help me out by acting as address proxy? The auction ends in 13 hours from now (between 6 and 9am US time), so please, let me know asap!!!
I'll send you vegemite and Tim Tams in return...

I've got an ebay account, even though I've never bid on anything there (I buy books thru half.com - an ebay company). I could do it for you. How high do you want to go? It's at $50 right now (or thereabouts).
If you need, I can do it. Just let me know! You know how to get me!
P.S. I'll do it if you promise NOT to send me vegemite!!
Thanks guys! Teresa is going to bid for me (thanks hon!), so now all I need is finger's crossed from everyone that it will be worth it - about 3 years ago you couldn't get one of these sets for less than $200 on eBay, but this isn't the collectors edition, merely the limited edition *aheh*, so hopefully we'll get it for less.
The bid is in... fingers are crossed!
*Crosses Fingers* Good Luck - Really hope you get it. It is a Beautiful Deck - one of my favorites!!
thanks babe. I didn't know you had it :D. Yay! Someone who understands!
Yep I have a bunch of Tarot decks - but I love reading the Vertigo Deck the best. I think because I read the comic (Oops I just let my nerd slip out) and "know" the characters in the Major Arcana - It gives me a little more insite than just the actual meaning of the card... Ya know - sometimes my geekyness even surprises me! (the best part about my deck is I found it at a garage sale for like 2 bucks!)
Really. Well. You learn something new every single day. :) :D
As Ev would say, we're showing how big our geek is ;).
Let's not even mention our ~other~ obession here *looks at her sorting icon*.
And I may just have to take you for 50 hit points for snagging that deck for 2 bucks ;P
I'm not familiar with the deck or the comic but I thought the cover art looks great. I'm one of those old fuddyduddies that has the first deck s/he ever had, and uses it faithfully (uh, religiously?)... I'm afraid to buy another one because I don't want to piss off the one I already have. I KNOW you know what I mean.
Oh man! I totally missed the chance for Tim Tams! Groan!
Well, did you win the auction?
YES! We won! I'm so excited. Teresa and I rock the house *wooot*.
actually I do understand what you mean Rose *grin*. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if someone else gave you some cards as a gift? maybe then they wouldn't get shitty? I own over 10 decks now, and read with three. if you treat them all equally, they don't seem to get pissed off.
Wait... wait... wait... Your name is not Goldie?? I feel... betrayed somehow. lol
Lori, I've been lying to you all! *sigh* my name really isn't goldie. I know, I know, I should be punished severely. but how can you punish me for not wanting to use my real name online? Especially when it's Marj Simpson?
Only joking. Marjorie is only my middle name ;).
