After lunch, we went to an art show and got our culture on...a great afternoon.
I also met my 1st London friend..Alyssa for coffee last week and she demanded I make my way to the flagship "Paperchase" store. She was confident I would like it and thank god I took her direction! This store changed my life...when I walked to the 2nd floor and saw the Christmas decor, I was so excited...I had to walk away. I felt my heart rate rising!!! Hot Pink Christmas Trees!?!!? Glitter Jesus in multiple colors!??!!?! I couldn't contain myself!!! It was as if a disco ball had exploded all over December up in there! I LOVED IT!!!! I also had an amazing experience in the gift card section where I found a) "Mrs. and Mrs" and "Mr and Mr" cards for gay couples (Love my gays and LOVE when they are recognized and allowed to share in the joy of greeting card receiving for their commitment ceremonies) and b) I found SHIRA and HEMAN cards!!!!!! Any store that recognizes the single most important cartoon of the 80's is in my top 10 FOREVER!!!!
I have gone back twice since my first visit and I think I might be closer to convincing my boyfriend that a hotpink Christmas tree is a good idea...even if it is only the 2' size for the guest room!!!!
