Reasons Target Is My Favorite Store:
You can get almost anything you need there.
Their Cherokee cropped stretch jeans are cut just right for me and the first pair I bought, in my regular size, got too big even before I started losing weight so I had to buy a smaller size, but I still probably paid less for two pairs of them than I would for one good pair of cropped jeans someplace else.
A lot of their stuff looks really cool because they care about design
Really cheap boxes of cereal bars that Rachel likes
Good prices on juice boxes
On, if you're looking at clothing, you can click on "red"or "green" or whatever and they'll show you everything they have in that color

Bummers about Target:
We don't have one here in Davis
Their pants never fit Rachel
Last week when we went there to buy a Gameboy, they didn't have any so we had to go to Game Stop. Then when we went there again the other day, they had a whole bunch of Gameboys.

What do you have against Ethan Hawke? Thought that one was a little weird. I liked him in Training Day. Other than that the only other movie I know of him in was Reality Bites. See you this weekend.

Tracie said...

I think he's a pretentious asshole. Also he blamed the divorce on Uma wanting to be a movie star after he cheated on her. Bleah. And don't even get Ryan started on him -- there are not words to describe his loathing...

Chad said...

Ahhh. Out of the loop I guess. I watch the movies and and only get the crumbs of gossip of their personal lives. In fact your blog seems to be my main source of gossip. Angela is now getting US magazine, so I will probably be a little more up on this kind of stuff. I didn't even know he married Uma Thurman. I know they were in Gattica together.

A Friend said...

Gattaca sucked.

Chad said...

Yes it did.

Tracie said...

Never saw it, but I didn't hear good things about it. I liked "Before Sunrise" and want to see "Before Sunset" but that'll be one of those I have to watch while Ryan's not here because he just can't tolerate watching EH in anything...
