i love gelato. so good. i especially love walking around pike place market and then treating myself to some delicious gelato from Bottega Italiana. my favorites are the watermelon and honey dew gelato! perfect during a hot day.

i have several weddings, bridal showers, and special events that i will be attending this summer and all of them are either semi-formal or very formal events. i'm actually very excited because i just love getting dressed up and feeling pretty. so during any free time that i can spare, i'm usually browsing the net for dresses. there are a ton of pretty dresses out there, but i'm a gradstudent, so i'm definitely shopping on a tight budget. i'm looking for dresses with a bit more color, but a girl can never go wrong with a little black dress...specially a lbj with a classic cut...
look what i've found:
nordstrom - $134.00
target - on sale for $40
JcPenny - on sale for $30same basic dress, huh? and it's so easy to dress up or down. plus, no one will ever know that you spent under $50 for such a classic, flirty dress. love finds like this.

i saw the new indiana jones movie last night. i liked it. i was a bit worried harrison ford was going to try to act younger than his age...he didn't. he definitely shows his age. i won't give any of the plot away, but it's very indiana jones-y...some action, some romance, some bad guys...a fun movie experience. but i'm the type of person who continues to think about a movie for days and now, after some thinking, i have few questions and thoughts:
- why do most "bad guys" in a movie have an accent? it's usually russian, arabic, or brooklyn/italian (think mob movies), and frankly it's getting old. and we wonder where stereotypes come from.
- i love the 1950s. everything seems so much simpler...and cleaner. also, i've always secretly wanted to wear one of those pointy bras from that era.
- i don't think i've ever met a real-life anthropologist in my life. i've seen them on the discovery channel and what not, but i've never actually met one. do people still go into that profession? i know people who studied anthropology in undergrad, but now they don't do anything relevant with their degree.
- i understand steven spielberg is great at what he does, but i sometimes feel like he is the equivalent to starbucks. he's every where. he seems to direct, or co-direct, everything...a monopoly of some sort. let's give some fresh-face director a chance to shine.
anyway, it was a good movie. i love movies. i especially love going to the movies at night.

i am so excited that an H&M store is moving into the abercrombie&fitch space in the u village. some of the stores in the u village are a bit out of my price range (ie. Mercer) so i'm looking forward to actually doing some serious shopping the next time i am there. i've heard that the doors will open in spring 2008...so my question is, um, when exactly is spring 2008? i'm pretty sure spring started back in march.
come on, already. you're killing me.
also, why does their website suck so bad? H&M, my darling, i just want to browse through your clothes. no, i don't want to see some 5'11 girl with perfect hair + makeup modeling one of the bikinis. and no, i don't want to dress a cyber girl with cyber-versions of your clothing line.
