Devil with a Blue Dress On

Hey there, everybody! I know. It's been a long time since I (Erika) updated. But my life just isn't nearly as exciting as Jessica's in South Korea. Here I am, though! Yay!

So. What have I been up to?
As the title suggests, I have been acting like the devil and wearing a blue dress.

Ok. Not really at all. But! I did buy 2 new dresses for 2 of the 3 weddings I am going to this summer. And dress shopping really is so much fun. Dresses are the one thing that I actually enjoy going to try on. Shirts, pants, bathing suits... all just a hassle (yes hassle, Andrew) to try on. But my sister and I had a blast trying on all sorts of dresses. And I fell in love with 2, which, ironically, we didn't take a picture in either one of those.... And! The best part is - one was $35 marked down from $70, and the other was $15 marked down from $50! Yessss. I love deals. :D

And, just for the record - I am also reading a book by Frank Peretti, who likes to write about demons and devils. So the relation of the title to my life is 2-fold. I am just that cool.

Also. For those of you who have been living under a rock, the Red Wings WON the Stanley Cup!!! That pretty much makes my summer complete right there. No, I'm not kidding.

In other news, I got an internship that I'm suuuper excited about!! It's for a communications company in downtown Greenville - which is the prettiest downtown anything ever. I'm going to be working on some of their graphics stuff. I'm not really sure what that means yet, but I'm still super excited. It's way better than working at Dairy Queen again, as much as I love ice cream. :)

I finally saw Clear and Present Danger. So good. Next assignment - Patriot Games and The Hunt for Red October. Love those Jack Ryan movies.

I also saw Kung-Foo Panda. Which, believe it or not, was good. I wasn't really looking forward to seeing it to be honest, it looked kind of dumb to me, but I went with my sister who can't see lots of movies yet, and I was pleasantly surprised. It was funny. And I liked it. I also got in for FREE! So, again - love bargains - that made it even better.
Here's the story: the deal was that Kendal pays for the tickets, and I pay for the popcorn and pop. She said to the lady, "2 for Kung-Foo Panda" and the lady said, "Ok, that'll be $6.50" I thought that sounded awfully cheap, but didn't really think much of it. So the lady gave Kendal the ticket(s). And we went in, gave the ticket(s) to the ticket person. She said, "That'll be theater 11 on your right," and handed us back 1 ticket stub. Huh. That's weird. Only one stub? Then we started putting all the pieces together and realized that we both just got in w/ only one ticket. Hah! After the movie, we went back and did the "right" thing and told the guy at customer service that we needed to pay for another ticket, but he said it was their fault so we didn't have to pay. :) yesss. And then he tried to get us to describe the lady that let us in... but we felt bad for getting her in trouble so we acted like we couldn't really remember what she looked like.

And that's that.

Peace out.
