I got my first pedicure ever (!) on Saturday. How can someone go without a pedicure for 32 years of their lives, you might ask?
Well, a) you must have grown up in Germany [because pedicures for teenagers and young women are definitely a pretty new invention over there – or am I wrong?] and b) you must have been too tight on money for too long to go “waste” it on a footbath and massage, followed by nail-clipping and coloring done by someone else but yourself. But it is, I have to say, quite the treat.
I couldn’t stop starring at my pretty french-polished feet [in sandals!] afterwards :) |
The rest of the weekend was not AS exciting as last weekend, but we still had a relaxing time.
We went out for breakfast yesterday. Breakfast in an overall pretty “liberally inclined” place. At the end of our breakfast, the waiter brought the check and also two jelly beans. He asked as to ‘cast our votes’ for Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton at the door. McCain wasn’t even in the race there *ha!* There were two glass vases and many people before us had ‘cast their votes’ with jelly beans. It was kind of funny… because there were only blue, red and white ones. Would you have expected anything different?! ;)
The two vases were kind of equally filled with those colored jelly beans. Damn, I should have taken a picture. Where’s your camera when you need it, right?
We dropped in our “votes” and I left wondering “who do you think is going to make the nomination?”.
Oh, and did I mention: I already received my federal tax refund! It’s kind of convenient to do your taxes before the due date… before the IRS people are swamped with last-minute returns and won’t get to yours in a timely manner :)
