1 sexy haircut.
1 hour in a used bookstore, whose stock I've determined smells funny and is generally overpriced and in worse condition than that of other used bookstores — no purchases.
1 online book-buying spree.
2 trips to 2 different parks with wading pools.
2 trips to yet 2 other parks for good ol' sandbox and slides.
1 excruciatingly powerful novel.
1 fairly entertaining B-movie, resplendent with stilted dialogue and crappy acting, its only truly memorable aspect being the heroine's boots — sleek and sexy yet sporting remarkably sensible heels.
1 Parc Safari excursion, complete with:
-giraffes! I love giraffes!
-countless slobbering beasts poking their heads into our vehicle
-playground, with bouncy tent
-amusement park rides
-1 very delighted little girl with a new and sudden fascination with zebras
-2 slightly sun-tendered shoulders, plus exhaustion
