I went back. To the store having the massive closing down sale. Because I'm an idiot sometimes, and I really wanted some black pants. And $5 pants are a pretty good bargain.
It's a weekend so the store was busier than yesterday, lines much, much longer. I started to think that everyone who hadn't gone to the Aussie Bloggers Conference had headed to Harris Scarfe. I hope everyone at the conference is having a ball!
In front of me in the line were a teenage girl and her father. About 40 minutes into the wait the girl's mother joined them and I overheard this: "Mum, we were so bored we watched all the videos of the cat that I had on my phone." Her cat must be more interesting than my two. All mine do is laze around and plot my death. Still I get the boredom. I have never been so happy to have over 300 episodes of various tv shows on my (thankfully) fully charged iPod. After an episode and a half of Warehouse 13 I was finally served by a girl who was somehow still cheerful. I hope she gets a huge bonus.
In the past two days I've bought $200 worth of clothes for $20. My mother will be so proud.
