The Urban Southern Belle

It really is too bad that both of my jobs require a uniform consisting of the company shirt and khakis. Just when I've become obsessed recently with dresses and other feminine articles of clothing. I work as a cashier at a local bargain department store, which is honestly the best job in the world for me right now. Never before would I have thought that I could buy trendy clothes for such low prices outside of the thrift store.

Rent-A-Doll at the Library

They rent books, movies, museum passes, video games, and now American Girl dolls. I guess I should have seen it coming. Gone are the days when the library is a place merely for studying or reading/checking out books. We haven't been to the local library since we've moved, as they were going under major reconstruction. I think that I'm going through major book withdrawal; I haven't checked out a book in months. Back in New York, my family was one of the very few who still used the library as a place to borrow books; most of the library visitors were there to check out movies or to go on the internet computers. I would actually feel deep sympathy for the dusty books. Come on, who wants to check out a ten pound hardcover book, when you can get the same book on your Ipad? Or Kindle, I don't discriminate!

Getting back to the library who is starting an American Girl doll rental service.
