I was talking to Audra, more than Ethierry.
I like the weather too, but it makes me a little nervous when I am already running the A/C in my car in February. 120degree summer seems more likely, which sucks. My son and Nick both work outdoors, so I worry about the heat a little more probably.
I think you've been swindled, dear.
Also, where abouts in town are you staying? I can definitely recommend some places.
EDIT* Love the pics Ivy. I miss the desert.
I was just browsing through yahoo articles, and apparently the movie Empire Records was written by a former employee of a Tower Records in Phoenix that closed in 2005. I wonder if that was the Chris-town store I used to frequent? I loved that place. There was also one at ASU.
The Matsuri Japanese Festival in Heritage Square this past weekend was a lot of fun for me and my kids and FREE. I did have to pay for parking, but it was so cool to go to a free event that my kids really wanted to go to, and my daughter Cerys was so excited to see everyone dressing up as their favorite anime characters and dressing in traditional Japanese style. And of course buying tons of souvenirs and Japanese books (cerys is teaching herself Japanese). I definitely look forward to next year.
