Listy McListsalot goes shawpin and eats

1. Bought new washer and dryer at Sears. Not the sex-ay red LC HE model, but the boring white ones.

2. Went to the Kittery Outlets with my sister, who is visiting from Virginia. I needed pillows, so I suggested we go to the Cuddledown outlet. Score! They were having a big pillow sale. Which is good, because I bought eight.

3. Visited the Brooks Brothers outlet to see whether they had boys' clothing, but they don't. While my sister, who is virulently anti-prep, turned celadon green, and finally escaped to the store next door, bought two pairs of jeans for myself and handkerchiefs, underwear, and a tie for my husband.

4. While my sister browsed through the racks at the J. Jill outlet, I, who was turning a pale shade of celadon green because I am so anti-aging hippy, visited the Cosmetics Company outlet next door. Or whatever they call themselves. The Estee Lauder people. Score! My favorite moisturizer, now discontinued, was there. Also some shite you can only buy at the Duty-Free shop, because they don't sell it in the States. So I bought some miraculous anti-brown-spots potions called Cyber White. Because I'm not just white, I'm CYBER WHITE. Also? BOBBI BROWN. Bought awesome two-layer lip and eyeshadow palette; perfect for travel. Susie, Wendy, and Blackbird: spotted that awesome lip gloss palette I have. Let me know if you want one and I'll pick one up for you. It's makeup heaven in there.

5. Went to When Pigs Fly, a local bakery. Bought bread.

6. Tired. Went home. Energized briefly by changing all the pillows and throwing out the really horrible old ones.

7. Too tired to cook. Went to BG's Boat House for dinner. Too tired to deal with lobster shells; got Lazy Man's Lobster for dinner.

8. Then ice cream at the Ice House. Frozen coffee Heath Bar yogurt, to be exact. See how dietetic?


  1. I want to live near you. I want to be your sister. I want to know what Lazy Man's lobster is.

  2. Oooh, I love When Pigs Fly bread. Sounds like a great day. I need to do that Kittery run one of these days when I actually have some money to spend.

  3. What the hotfessional said... although I already have one overly preppy sister.

    But she plays too much tennis, is determined to live "East of the Mississippi and South of the Mason-Dixon line" for no apparent reason, and doesn't understand why people blog, so I'd happily trade her in for YOU.

    I had looked them up when I got home

    I will definitely take one of those lip palettes...will forward money to your paypal account!

  5. Vacation home ownership sounds exhausting.

  6. You do know that J.Jill is owned by Talbots?

  7. I'm getting crustacean envy.


  8. YES! On the lip palette!
    HEAVILY INTERESTED in the Cyber White as well.
    Should probably pop in to test the New Hampshire pillows too.......

  9. You make me so homesick for Portsmouth, I could cry. It's good to know the Ice House & BG's Boathouse are still there. Is the rotting boat graveyard still next door to BG's? Argh! Why am I stuck here in Texas? Please keep blogging so I can eat lobstah vicariously through you!

  10. Me and your sistah? May just be bookends.

  11. Gah! I don't check in on the internet for one weekend and look what happens! If I'm not too late, yes, on the lip palette.

    I wondered how long it would take for the compact to die.
