Aw, what a nice night. So the Jessigirl and [livejournal.com profile] modernsaints took me out for a surprise early birthday outing, all secretive-like :D.

We went to the Vosges store first, because we like to do things backwards, and also because it closes earlier. It was awesome. Awesomely purple and beautiful and oh, so much lovely stuff everywhere. I wish I'd brought my camera. Virginia Plain was playing when we went in, which was hilarious because we'd just been talking about Velvet Goldmine (which [livejournal.com profile] sharpest_rose brought up earlier, and which the roomie still has yet to see: I made it another condition of my birthday that we all watch it together, lol).

We basically ran around like little kids in a, well, candy shop. They have clothes, too. I very nearly bought myself a cute puffed-sleeve blazer with coppery pinstripes - SO CUTE - but refrained. Probably very expensive.

Instead, we got some truffles, and Emily got some minibars, and we shared some ice cream (Pandan and Naga, mmmm) and Jessi and Emily both got the Bianca cold chocolate drink, which is lavendar and lemon myrtle with white chocolate and is nicely herbal with a fruity aftertaste (that can taste a little like Froot Loops).

Then we headed to Minnie's, where everything is tiny. It was adooorable. I got a tiny tuna melt, a tiny veggie sandwich and a tiny pizza, along with a tiny limonada and a tiny glass of water and...actually fairly normal sized fries. SO CUTE OMG.

It was all up in the Lincoln Park neighborhood, and everything around there is really cool, aside from the frat boys, but the stores are just adorable and, um, I want an apartment with a tower, kthx.

There was something else I wanted to mention. I don't know. We had a really good time. It was awesome, and I love my girlfriend and my roomie for being awesome, and I had a lot of fun. <3

I knooooooooow! We were like, "You watch. You understand." I don't even know how anyone missed out on the glory that is VG. Even my sister's pothead, supposedly hetero ex-boyfriend watched it and said, "Can we watch it again?" Seriously, the movie is epic.

AWWW! I am glad they are making you happy. Don't you also love how you keep getting Harry Potter for your birthday? :D

Hee, I know! Considerate of the producers ;D
It did make me miss you, though! What's new with you?

Clearly they know what's best for them!

Awwwwwww! Things. Stuff. I dunno. Stressed. Meaning to do a big post but god only knows when that'll happen. How's Chicago treating you, aside from the obvious?
