you can't look in on one way eyes, ohio
took a trip down to ohio land for four days with my dear lovey/little sister jerakah, and had some fun in st. louis for two days. i loved cedar point, it wasso great going back. i rode rollercoasters that broke world records and made even the most cowardly turn heads. so awesome. i bought three pairs of fake hello kitty nails, and a hello kitty lanyard for the next school year. yes, i know. we also went to an island called put-in-bay. have you ever heard of put-in-bay?! cause i sure as hell hadn't. but it's a pretty cute place. it's like an itty bitty town, according to the wikipedia machine, only 36 families live there, with a population of about 160. lovely, eh? lots of wineries and pubs there. we rode around on a golf cart everywhere.
st. louis was freaking AWESOME. who knew that place is so trendy! so hip! so happenin'! so trendy! i saw the cutest girls and boys walking round the streets of "the loop", the shopping strip/district thing. i stopped by the coolest stores with the most interesting and weird stuff i had ever seen. it was divine. i wanted to stay. there were also a lot of cute clothing stores, one in particular stuck out to me, one that had a bunch of 50's-esque dresses that reminded me a lot of pin-up girls and stuff. unfortunately i was pretty much broke, so i left with a few postcards to stick on my wall and nothing more. but oh well. we also went to a graphic novel store in which i nearly had a heart attack over. it mainly consisted of a bunch of awesome manga and anime, but there were ALSO a bunch of really great art books and graphic design books. and also extremely adorable indie boys that worked there. not only these, but CELL PHONE CHARMS TOO. and attached to my cell phone is a good 5 pounds worth of hello kitty cell phone charms. so i picked up a couple. i also bought a kimono book which i instantly fell in love with before i even opened it, and bettie paige stationary which i couldn't even live without. we also ate at a place called cafe mochi that served delish japanese food. i had the best udon ever and shrimp nigiri. yummy yummy yummy.
i'm so glad to be back home though. <3
