friday five

1. Do you like to shop? Why or why not?
I *love* to shop! Presents, I like everyone to have presents! They're my friends, they need presents!

(exception to this: aimless trolling around with Chris buying dollar store stuff, or nailpoilish, etc. where we can just stop if we are not having fun)

2. What was the last thing you purchased?

No. But I used to save my lunch money and I could buy an LP every week.

5. What was the last thing you regret purchasing?
I hope very very much that in a day or so I will find out that the answer is *not* our new car... Our Vue went in for its three month maintenance last week and is *still* in there somewhere, with its engine disassembled. Saturn is being very nice, but...
