The Sun Does Exist!!

As I woke up today, I was startled by this unusual sort of brightness for 9am.. I quickly got up to see what unusual phenomenon was causing this. I almost gasped outloud.. SUN! After litterally a record breaking cold/cloudy/rainy umm 10 months? I think everyone was absolutely thrilled to have a genuine sunny, warm, pretty much cloudless day. I know I was, I decided I had to go downtown on this joyous occasion.
Soo off I went downtown, I did only a slight amount of shopping, but somehow still ended up spending big. Remember those boots I mentioned a few posts ago? Well turns out they were 50% off, so I couldnt resist!! They are almost knee height, brown leather with some buckles happening here and there, and probably about a 3/3.5 heel. Regular $265.. I got them for about $90.. but then our ridiculous tax brought it up to more like $100.. still fairly good savings =)
Oh and I saw these freakin adorable Miu Miu boots.. but at $1040.. I wasnt buying ;)

After my quick shop, we headed off to the beach, took a stroll down the sea wall, and went to this little take-out place on the beach to order fish and chips =) Then we sat on a bench and pretty much people watched. Good day for viewing I must add.. um hot guys jogging topless/playing beach volleyball, yeah pretty good =) But there were also the "please put some clothes on" type people, one perhaps being the 80yr old wearing a speedo, help! my eyess!

I did take pictures.. and also spent about an hour trying to fix the camera so I could load them onto the computer, but being the not-so-techy type person I am, couldn't figure it out.. We're going to take the camera back to where we bought it tommorow, so hopefully this nonsense can be fixed once and for all! I did however take one view photo on my cell.. so enjoy my nice sunny day! =D

PS: The new coldplay CD comes out tommorow, Yay!! Can't wait
*update, I stayed up after 12am so I could hear it hehe, LOVE IT, so buying it =)
Oh and while waiting I noticed on msn.com, "The worlds best places to live in 2008"
Im number 4! With highest life expectancy, woo! go us, see if your city is on the list!
