I’m really excited for two very different things happening tomorrow…
1. Daria comes out on DVD. If you were a fan of the show, you have also been waiting for eight years for the DVD box set. I would like to point out that you can order the Bachelor Finale DVD while you’re watching the reunion special, but I’ve been waiting eight years for Daria. Before now, the cloest thing I had to a box set is the VHS tapes I recorded off MTV. If you didn’t watch the show, Daria is a Beavis and Butthead spin off about an acid tounged girl going to high school.
2. Nordstrom Rack opens in Union Square, a store designed for the broke ass who doesn’t want to look like a scumbag. Oddly enough, I refused to shop at Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack when Daria was on the air. I saw both stores as a source of evil, providing my classmates in high school with layerable shirts in the same three colors to wear while the primped their single curl bangs in the bathroom mirror when I wanted to wash my hands. But then I grew boobs, and Nordstrom was one of the few stores that carried bras in my awkward size.
After high school, I got the fuck over myself and figured out Nordstorm just sold simple, high quality clothes that were free of evil powers. The only problem is the regular store isn’t that broke ass friendly, but Nordstorm Rack is! Instead of having clearance sections in their individual stores, Nordstrom puts all their mark down items into one store. If you’re looking for crazy discounts on warm and fuzzy sweaters, designer shoes in sizes five to 11, trench coats for selling letters in a dark alley, bras in difficult sizes, etc. check out Nordy’s Rack. To give an idea of the mark downs, you’ll find ruffley underpants marked down from $14 to $3, Calvin Klein bras marked down to $15. Its Union Square location is sure to make it a madhouse, but it’s gotta be less crazy than Century 21, right?
One Union Square South
