Fullerton Adventures

Playing: Under the Gun-The Killers
Reading: The Sandman: Preludes and Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman
To continue our adventure in Fullerton, Sophie and I walked a mile to get to another area in Fullerton that had this great deserted desert city, retro type of vibe. Of course, I couldn't resist the challenge of telling Sophie to go look like an angry teenager for my photo and have her listen to me.
Our mile long walk took us to The Thrift Store, which was one of our sketchier finds. It was completely random selling everything from clothes to strollers to old china. One of the problems I had with this place was how stuffy it was and how there wasn't much of a breeze. However, if you look through their DVDs and CDs, you can probably find something you like for less than $3.
As you can see, the back half of The Thrift Store was jam packed with clothing from past decades and there was so much that Sophie and I sort of gave up on it. Sophie looks absolutely flabbergasted at how much clothing there seems to be in this photo. By that time, she and I were extremely dehydrated from the stuffiness of the store and the hot weather, so we left in search of a place to get drinks.
We ended up getting drinks at a CVS Pharmacy, but ultimately ended up at a 99 Cent Store, which was at least another mile away or so it felt that way. I kind of want to get this deodorant for a friend, so I can walk up to them and tell them they SMELL LIKE TEEN SPIRIT. I think Nirvana needs to sue this brand and teach them a lesson. Haha, but seriously, isn't this the best name for deodorant ever? Whenever I'm in the locker room with my friends and it smells horrible, I say, "It smells like teen spirit in here."
Sophie ended up digging through the makeup section in hopes of finding something amazing and for doing a review on her blog. However, I was incapable of helping her find something cool to buy because I was too busy drinking water and trying to stop myself from being too dehydrated. She ended up getting some pretty nifty items and we just bummed around for a bit before we decided it was time to call it quits. We've decided that we're going to explore more cities now just to get a better feel for California. Sounds like a halfway good idea, right?
Do you explore different towns just because you feel like it? No reason other than just because you want to?
