Shopping in Romania

Finally I left my house. It almost felt like I was abandoning her...because we had been alone together for so long. Its sad but my daily routine is as follows. When I am done with work, I come straight home with the subway, make dinner, watch my super sweet 16 on MTV...Pause....are those girls really really kidding me? What are sixteen year olds doing with BMW's and Jaguars? I'm sure they return it right after MTV packs up their camera's. In fact its on right now, Tianna has just come to give out her invites in an ice cream truck, her voice is sexy though. Oh my she got her dress custom made and it looks like a poofy lollipop. The show is perplexing but fun to watch for want of something to watch that I can actually understand the language....Unpause....After that I watch Medium, I have truly fallen in love with this show and then I may choose to watch CNN or other CSI-like shows that follow while I chat, facebook, and/or write. SAD. I know.

So anyway, this week I finally made friends with this Romanian girl and I think she thinks I am a weirdo because she asked what I have been doing for three weeks and I said...nothing really. I don't think she really understood what I meant. 'NATHINGGG?? What do you mean nothing??'
Yeah her very words. So she has taken pity on me, a sad African child who only goes out to buy groceries. This weekend, I have been taken to a bar, gone swimming, eaten out and gone shopping. Nothing of which I have done in three whole weeks apart from a short break last weekend outside Romania. But leaving my flat wasn't funny. I felt serious withdrawal symptoms and I know she felt abandoned. Poor thing.

Apparently I have free membership to the gym where we went swimming..who knew, at least I can entertain myself with that. Shopping was fun, I broke all my promises to myself and had to purchase something. Its just the right thing to do. Anyway I saw this dress and wanted to know what you guys thought...A Yes or a No



I didn't buy it because I hate buying on impulse and I had already done that before getting to this store. I love the yellow though. Wait oh..as in really this Tainnas party is fun oh, I wouldn't mind shaking my tail feather with them.

Its back to work tomorrow...blahhhhhhhh.

Lee said...

Hahaha.. If you like the dress and you really need it, get it. That's how I question myself when I'm caught up with impulse buying.

Once you get out and break that "jinx" of sitting home, get a map, walk and discover the city more.:)

TaureanMinx said...

@pink satin, they sure are. It can be quite entertaining to watch.
@lee, I like it...don't know about needing it though lol. I will explore some more, definitely.

A Kel called Wonder ...... said...

Ok lovy how much is it? that would determine buying on impulse for me, cos if its less than say $40.00 then even if u dont wear it u wont feel bad. Its nice and cute though. I like the fact that its short!

Buy it and you can give it to your sister if u realise u dont need it.


Ermm alone in a new city! i will face book and gym too, then do the whole tourist thing in and outside of the country.
