After my stint at the gym (yeah I said GYM bitches) I decided to cool down and walk to Union Square and take the train home from there. That is when I saw the saddest site of my life.
Aldo's Liquidation shoe store in Union Square was having a Lease Sale... meaning GOODBYE!!!
I have a large obessession for Aldo's ever since I was 10 and was in Montreal with my parents and saw a pair of shoes in the window that I just had to have. I loved the European sizes because it was different, and I got to come home with things no one else had.
I mean it's not like can't get Aldo shoes anymore, but I can't get them for 10, 15 or even 20 bucks. Boo!
Soo... I'm thinking Zappo's? Online shopping is rad. Gotta go, Valley Girls is on VH1... Fer sure, totally awesome!!!!

Be proud y'all. I joined the gym and I didn't let them scam me. No I didn't. So I went in wanting to join for the advertised 19 dollars a month. They tried to roll me over with $150.00 sign up fees and all this and that, and I held firm at the $19 deal. Well what do you know. They get someone over to set me up and blimmey! They don't have the deal anymore. Now I'm all geeked and pumped to join the gym and get my booty on the elliptical and they literally burst my bubble. The manager did a bit of prodding (still, I hold firm) I said, no thanks to his membership rates and complained about just moving to the city and having a tiny flow of cashoola. Pshaw! I moved to the city 8 months ago (yet, my flow of money is tiny, teeeeeny tiny).
I finally got up to leave and he said, wait for it..... "How about 20.00 bucks to sign up, since that's all you have (he just HAD to slide that in there) and 43 bucks a month with the third year free?"
Now if you are savvy on the gym deals within the city, I believe mine is pretty rad. I have tri-state coverage and can go to any gym in the city. I believe that I have a great deal, especially knowing that some friends are paying 100 bucks just to run. Eesh.
Hooray for me.
Anyone going to Coachella and if so, HOW?
