  60. Karen says:

    Hi Vampy Varnish,

    How fun! I haven’t been on a pair of roller blades in years. I want a pair of old school roller skates though — you know, with the two wheels in the front, two wheels in the back. Back in the day I used to hustle pretty fast around the roller skating rink in those, LOL…

    Hi Tiera,

    Fun! Did you pick out a skin for your iPhone yet?

  62. Karen says:

    Hi Tiffany,

    I have gone through phases where NOT shopping is extremely challenging, too. One thing I’ve found that helps is to just make myself wait — if I’m still lusting after whatever I wanted to buy in two weeks I’ll go back and get it. Usually that’s enough time for me to forget about wanting it, LOL.
