I wholeheartedly agree with some of the 13 things to love about being an American in July's Glamour:
# 2 The belief that "there's no place like home" and that really great red shoes can get you there.I'd like to be wearing some really great new red shoes whilst eating pie and watching surfer boys polka. That sounds like a party.
# 5 California surfer boys.
# 10 Pie.
# 13 No matter where you are, you're never that far from a taco, an egg roll, a sari, or a polka.
[Yes, okay, I realize the confession is redundant, but: "I've been reading the trashy girl magazines."]
