for that dog lover in your life, here's a brilliant gift idea! fake sleeping dogs! they breathe, they're warm and fuzzy, but unlike live dogs, they never wake up!
our local mall is so weird. i heard that it opened at 1:00 am the day after thanksgiving, except that it was only "locally owned" stores that were open. which means, i guess, that all the bizarre kiosks were open -- like "perfect petzzz" and "happy feet," which are huge ugly slippers that look like oversized sneakers, and the light-up pictures with moving waterfalls... who are the lucky recipients of all this crap, i wonder??
