The Happening: Well.. hmm. I thought there were some interesting visual moments. Andy completely hates it.
The Incredible Hulk: It was ok.. though I got bored in the fight scens after a while. No where close to Ironman.

On Sunday, Andy and I had dim sum at the Shanghai Palace, which was wayy too crowded. But I love their green tea deep fried sasame balls.

We also went to pick up my bridesmaid dress for Walter and Miriam's wedding, and.. they were too small. So I was like.. did I gain an entire size since I ordered it in April. Or did I do one of those vanity purchase, a size smaller so I was forced to diet. But I remember deciding against doing that in case I wouldn't fit and Miriam would be pissed ("Uh, sorry Miriam, the diet failed. Can I wear this instead? It's in the same color family?").

Anyways, it was bad for my self-esteem, and the assistants insisted that I had ordered that size, and I asked them for a paper copy of my signature (since I didn't bring my copy.) Then one of them implied that I wouldn't even be able to fit the next size up.. and probably needed 2 sizes up. I was like.. aaaaarrrrrrgh. WTF?

After being on the phone and typing on the computer.. the 2 assistant ladies were like: Oh. We mistyped it on the computer. It's really easy to mistype. And yeah, that color has been discontinued. We don't have that size in that color anywhere in the country right now. We can get it end of July.

I ordered this dress in April. The wedding is in mid-July. They messed up the order, and still can't get it in time? Not to mention they've insulted my body image multiple times. Grrr. David's Bridal, you're on notice!

Anyways, they did have another style.. so I'm going with that. It'll mean that 3 of us will wear the same style, and 1 of us will be unique. Sniff. I wanted the original style too. But the one I'm getting will be fine. It was also more expensive but David's Bridal is comping the difference.

It did cross my mind to go on a crazy crash diet so I can drop a size in a month.. it is doable.. Hrm... But probably better to drop a size, and have a dress that's slightly too big then not fit into the dress at all!

Silliness.

bridesmaids dresses are also sized weird. I remember buying a 12 for my sister's wedding, and I'm fairly certain I was thinner then than I am now.

I can't believe that the store gave you such a hassle. I'd write them a bad review, or complain to the corporate headquarters about your bad experience. Or just let it go because stewing on things makes them seem worse than they really are.

I heard that bridal clothing have remained consistent in size with the past.. as opposed to department stores whose female sizes have grown as their clients waistline.

that makes sense, since Marylin Monroe had the same measurements I have, but she was about 4 inches shorter, and she's a 12.

They did not!

Wow, I can't believe how rude they were to you. I'm glad you held your own and made them check and see what size you had really ordered.

Also, no crazy crash diets! I want healthy, happy bridesmaids.

Yeah. Tell me about it!! I had to try on the size I ordered (in a different style) to convince them that I knew what I was talking about.

Hrmpf.

I looked at wedding dresses at David's Bridal and was not impressed with the service when I was there. I was told by many places, though, that the wedding dresses and bridal gowns are sized smaller than normal. My wedding dress was a size or two bigger than I normally go for.

I agree with zuleikhajami. No crazy crash diets. Those can just end up back firing, anyways, and people end up gaining weight. You shouldn't have to risk your health, because David Bridal completely messed up the order.

Yeah, but they do have really cheap prices though..

What store did you finally end up with? And were you happy with it?

Btw, zuleikhajami is Walter's fiance :) Walter doesn't really LJ.

They do. I ended up going to Trudy's Bridal. I think it might be local. I wanted a place with cheap prices and they were pretty good.

I figured. ^^ (We need to get Walter to LJ)

I haven't succeeded in doing it, so it may be a lost cause. He reads, though.

Awesomely spoiler-ful review of The Happening:

I have a really hard time imagining how that movie could possibly be any good.

Its not. Trust me. I saw it this weekend. I have enjoyed most of M.Knight's movies, including lady in the water, but this was just really bad. I believe the best line I have seen in any reviews was something along the lines of "its only worth watching just so you can be in on the ground floor when the film gets torn to shreds by critics"
