An update from conservative utopia

Okay folks, I'm back from my errands with a quick report on life here in conservative utopia, or at least the 5,000 square feet of it occupied by our local Target store.

I got a nifty new blow dryer which is going to change (dare I say revolutionize?) the entire hair drying process for me. It has - are you ready for this? TOURMALINE IONIC TECHNOLOGY! I have long suspected that what stood between me and that perfectly pulled-together look was semi-precious jewelry; I never thought to incorporate it into my small appliances. Just think what a difference a diamond drill bit might make!?!

My joy was slightly diminished my my inability to get the other appliance I needed, a humidifier. I did not get the humidifier because Target moved them all up to a shelf by the ceiling in order to make room for Christmas decorations. Which is essential on October 31st. I guess I'll have to ask Santa to bring me a humidifier, as I suspect he's the only one who can reach them. In the meantime, let's hope that all those extra tourmaline-generated ions in the air keep my nasal passages clear :)

Uh, I don't actually think that TARGET counts as a conservative Utopia...WalMart, maybe.

Trish--why didn't you pick up one of those red phones, and call a Target team member???? I did that a couple of visits ago and was told by a recording that someone would show up in 60 seconds. I was in the middle of sarcastically telling my four year old that 'we will just see how long it takes...' when the guy popped around the corner. It literally took him five seconds. I was suitably impressed.

That's why my hair hasn't been Lorelai-ish, must get TOURMALINE IONIC TECHNOLOGY.

I can't wait to see your hair! You are the fashion icon to which I aspire.

I can't believe all the Christmas stuff that's out already ... I went to the mall two weeks ago and they had one of those massive trees up. In mid-October!

You should totally post pictures of your hair!

Please post a review of the tourmaline ionic technology dryer. I need to replace mine and this may be just the ticket to tame my increasingly dull and dry hair.

I know it's weird, but I can't get enough Christmas right now. We didn't decorate at all last year since our house was on the market and it felt like Christmas never came. I've been looking forward to over-the-top store displays since about August. :)
