The Eternal Truth

The most interesting place to be is right in the middle of what I need to work on.

Because Sometimes, Actually Being Able to Walk

Is kinda beside the point...

A little back story: I first saw these babies online and posted them on this blog on March 8.  A month or so later while window shopping with my friend Amanda I saw them on display at Barney's, said display shoe was my size so I road tested them.  Amanda agreed, holy cow fabulous.  As I wasn't going to pay full price for a pair of shoes I really can't walk in I waited and waited til the sales started and holy cow they went down 50%.  Still not enough.  So I kept my eye on them and held my breath  (meanwhile all sizes selling out everywhere) until literally there was one last pair available anywhere in the known universe and they went to 70% off and oh wait coincidentally in my size!  Moral to this story?  All good things come to those who (fill in the blank).

Blog It or Lose It

my inspiration, that is.  Sending my trusty hound out to hopefully find where I buried it.

Well THIS is a first!

Our very first taste from our vineyard!  And it's even somewhat quaffable!

Mind The Gap

So yesterday I was running to catch the Bart train before the doors closed and while dashing into the train jam packed with commuters and Giants fans my left foot slipped and fell about 6" down into the narrow gap (the width of a size 8.5 shoe as it happens) between the platform and the train.  I jerked my foot up and made it onto the train safely just as the doors were closing.  I got scraped and bruised several inches well above my ankle but as my heart was pounding my first thought was OMG I could have lost a Jimmy Choo!

But fortunately both came home safe and sound, the shoe and the foot...

Moral to this story?  Call a cab.

Sigh. Sales. Easy Come, Easy Go

I guess you can't keep everything.

Or as my friend Pat says, there will ALWAYS be another pair of shoes.

And In the Glass Half Full Department, soon I will reveal what DIDN'T have to go back!

Oh, I Do So Love Watching the Tony Awards!

Ah, next life, I'm going to be an ACTRESS!

Oh, but then I probably wouldn't be able to afford shoes.

But then again, I have enough pairs to last two lifetimes!

But one thing I know for sure, next life I will learn to tap in the shoes I bought this lifetime!

The secret to my success?

Place the shoes in the shopping cart and check back every week til they go on sale.

Case in point: $100 originally, four months later? $30.

Other case(s) in point?  Shipped yesterday.
