  1. I’ve gone ice skating once or twice. Didn’t fall, because I knew how to roller skate quite well, but wasn’t great at ice skating, for some reason. Your story about ice skating when you were ten was very cute. 🙂 I used to go roller skating at a place designed for that when I was much younger, and used to get in trouble because they said I was “speed skating”. lol .

    I’m enjoying the ambient noise in this episode, too.

    In answer to your question: “What is a personal shopper?” I think it’s the second idea you mentioned. Someone who is super important, and too busy to shop for his or her self actually hires a person to go do that for them.

    The Emma Dean cabaret show you described sounded really interesting! And I agree, she does have an amazing voice.

    And Yay for Erk being back on afternoon shifts! You sound a whole lot more energized in this episode than you have sounded lately.

    I somehow missed the entire Twitter conversation that you and Shawn were having regarding strip clubs! LOL!
