Washington Square Mall run, April 9 April 17, 2012

So I went back to Washington Square Mall today. I’d been wanting to do that since my trip on March 15 was a disaster…anyway, I noticed they got new directories at the mall, and it was the same design as Castleton Square and Greenwood Park Mall’s directories for once! (Washington Square Mall’s directories usually get a secondary design.) I noticed that in addition to losing ‘This N That’ last month, the mall also lost a Christian supply store and Vitamin World, with the latter’s space being taken over by ‘C N P Hollywood Dollar’. However, one thing the mall DOES still have (and the main reason I go there) is Aeropostale. I went in there and NOTHING was a good enough sale- shorts being $20-25 and polos being $15-20, all of which is STILL too pricey. Luckily, I found a blue XL T-Shirt on sale for $5 on the clearance rack! I bought it. Then I went to this smoothie place- Sui Feng Ju, I think it’s called. They also have Chinese food, but I was still too full from lunch for more food. Frullati raised their price from $3.48 to $4.24 for a small smoothie, and Surf City Squeeze wasn’t much better at $3.89. This new place only charged $3.15, probably ’cause they used water or ice instead of cream, but for the price it was worth it! The funny thing about Washington Square is that it is half second-tier businesses like Torc, Hairapalooza, Fun World, reTails Neighborhood Pet Place, Rainbow, FunkE Fusion, ConsignMEN, and Indy Wholesale Furniture, and half first-tier, like Sears, Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Aeropostale, Victoria’s Secret, Radio Shack, Buffalo Wild Wings, and MCL. First-tier businesses are more ‘high name’ national chains that people have heard of, and second-tier businesses are more unknown name local businesses that people may or may not know of. Anyway, after starting to drink my smoothie, I went to Target to see if they had any Weber Grill barbecue sauce. They didn’t, but at least I managed to find 99 cent berry-scented Glade air freshener! (Wal-Mart was out of that during my last visit.) Then, the most peculiar thing happened. This old lady who looked to be in her early 50s, looked Russian and had a thick Slovakian accent, asked me if I could explain to her how solar-powered yard lights work since she said she couldn’t read English. Luckily, we have about a dozen of those lights in my yard, so it was very easy to show her. She said thank you when I was done and went on her way. But on the way out, as I finished backing up, the car behind me started backing up and didn’t stop. Had I not slammed my car into drive and pulled forward, the lady would’ve rear-ended me with her rear end! Oh, and then she just drove off. Annoying. At least I found $3.78 gas at the Speedway at 10th & Mitthoeffer when the north side is still $3.95.

Hey people! OK so I haven’t updated anyone on my articles since January 15, so here’s everything from then to April 11 (today)! (I am well aware it’s a lot, but maybe skip through and pick a few at random?)

These are the ones I’m most proud of because they took a LOT of work and had to be handled VERY delicately!





























I’m also a featured writer in this article:


Thanks for reading!

Ryan’s vs. Ryan’s April 9, 2012

OK so within the past two weeks, I went to both Ryan’s Steakhouses in Indy: the one on the east side off 10th & Shadeland and the one on the south side off US-31 & Stop 11.

Southside location- good for ice cream!

I noted that the east side location runs out of ice cream half an hour before closing (At least they have the last 3 times I’ve been there) and the south side location still has ice cream 10 minutes after closing.

East side location- good for teriyaki chicken!

And I REALLY enjoy their ice cream! I live closer to the east side one, but I drove to the south side one just for ice cream. However, I didn’t spot any teriyaki chicken at the south side location. The east side one always has teriyaki chicken. I guess each one has its strengths and weaknesses!
