Why is everything so freaking expensive?!
Seriously, I went to Walmart to get some stuff I need for packing - bathroom necessities, underwear, socks, and a DVD case thingy. I spent..wait for it... $50!!!! And I got NOTHING. I bought the bare minimum, all the cheapest stuff, even clearence items!
My big splurge was on a $9 bra which was on clearence. That being said I have ONE white bra and only one, and I wear it almost everyday so I thought I'd might as well get another one after trying to find my size for ages.
I even found a DVD case thing in the clearence section that holds 35 DVDs. For $7.
So how did I spent $50 you ask???!!! Beats the heck outta me! All that cheap stuff adds up too quickly!
My stomach feels weird at the moment but overall I've been feeling better.
People from Essex have been staying at the motel and I finally got to meet them today. They're leaving tomorrow evening back home (shame really that we weren't flying at the same time!) The man works for Boots as a delivery man and he thinks he might be going to the Wickford shop soon so I might see him around there! It was so great to talk to them, made me excited about going over. Everyone is just so nice. I know people say that English people aren't friendly, or that American's are friendlier or whatever, but I've met the nicest people in the world in England. But maybe that just my anglophile self loving everything there so much.
England plays tomorrow in the Euro 2004, good luck!!!!! I'll probably be going to the mall to meet a few of my friends I haven't seen in ages to catch up before I leave! Yay. But I'll be anxious to hear how the match went!
