Miscellany

Today will be a hodge podge of thoughts and ideas I've had pinging around in my head for a bit. Also, I've got pictures today - you know, kind of like "Show and Tell"! Aren't you lucky?



All Click had wondered a while back what constituted "really cute sandals". Well, in the brain of a female, it's a complicated mathmatical equation. It's something like : the desired cuteness multiplied by correct heel height divided by how expensive they are (more is better) minus the percentage of the sale price. It's all about the perceived (not real) bargain we stand to walk away with (so to speak).



Without further ado, I give you my new cute sandals:


And, if you'll take notice - I think I have really cute toes too. The 2nd toe is NOT longer than the first toe, as it is with most people. The Evil Twin says I obviously have a birth defect, but I don't think so. He's just jealous.








The next pic shows a side view of the sandals. Notice what I mentioned earlier about heel height. When you're a tall girl like myself, you want to be sure you don't tower over your man of choice. The Evil Twin has about 5 inches +/- on me, so we're good.












The next photo shows our growing caterpillars. They are MUCH larger than this photo, which I only took a couple of days ago. I think they're almost ready to form chrysalids. After that happens, we have a 7 to 10 day wait until they emerge as butterflies! I'm soooo excited!

















I'm sorry about the crappy layout here. I still haven't really figured out how to add pics without causing mutiny on Blogger. Let's face it: I'm lucky to have functioning brain cells, period. That's what having kids will do to your brain. It becomes like jell-o. Sometimes, it vibrates around in my skull like I'm on one of those funky mattresses in hotels a long time ago. You know, put a quarter in the machine and the whole bed shimmies. I used to think those were "rides". I suppose they were, depending on how you look at it.

  3. RON! You make-a me spit OJ!

    I'm 5'10" or so, so ANY shoe will make me tower over 90% of the mens out there. One reason I pretty much only wear flats...

  4. Crystal - Kohl's, darling!

    Ron, but do you have cute toes too? And are they painted red?

    Tiff, I'm darn close to 5 foot 9. I ordered the shoes for my wedding from a magazine, then had nightmares until they arrived that the heel would be too high. (they weren't - shew!)

  5. My toes are not painted and tend to scare children. Most of the time I keep them covered.

  6. Great shoes!!! Gotta love Kohls for shoes. I got a great pair there on Saturday...pewter heels with a peep toe. First thing I went to do after I bought them was fresh polish on my toes. Must have nicely polished toes! I went for the much darker OPI Linkin Park in the Dark. You should consider it as its great on toes with long nail beds like yours.

  7. Cute sandals. I haven't worn sandals in years. My feet are tres uglies. They're all or nothing feet: Total confinement or total freedom.

  8. PS: For some reason you riding the vibrabed as a child reminded me of the vibrating Harry Potter broomsticks that the kids were so fond of a few years back. XD

  9. I'm 5'9" now - down from a high of 5'10" and I always wore heels up until about 15 years ago. Plantar fascitis made it nearly impossible, and after that was cured, flats felt so good I stayed with them.

  10. OH you MUST come and see my SANDAL COLLECTION!!! The first day of Spring (even with snow) I start wearing my sandals. This will continue to sometimes past Halloween. My toes like to be in the fresh air at all times and totally unrestricted. My oldest daughter and I share this trend, thedaughter covers her feet at all times - GO FIGURE! I may just have to make a photo gallery of my Imelda Marcos collection...LOL
