Quote of the Day:
Many men owe the grandeur of their lives to their tremendous difficulties.
I heart shoes. Shoes are probably my most favorite thing in the whole world. I shouldnâ€™t have done it. I shouldnâ€™t have stopped at the mall and should have gone straight home like a good girl. But I didnâ€™t. I went to Nordstromâ€™s because I had my eye on a certain black pair of Franco Sartoâ€™s.
I quickly found the pair I was looking for and another pair of BCBGirls with sort of a retro-80s heel and a very pointy toe. I asked for them in my size and the girl returns with about four different pairs. She said the black Francâ€™s were on display in another department and she had to go get it, so to entertain me, she brought me about four different pairs of shoes to try.
Gaw. I told her that was a dangerous thing for a shoe-a-holic. Of course I tried on the other pairs but I wasnâ€™t excited about any of those. They were just okay. She came back with the Francoâ€™s and I have to say they are the prettiest shoes Iâ€™ve had in a long while. I love them. They were a shoo-in (no pun intended). Anyway, as it turns out, I walked out of the store with three pairs and did some nice damage to my credit card. Sheesh. But the thing is â€“ I can do that sort of thing and no one gives a ratâ€™s ass that I spent money on shoes or that I charged them. The only one that I have to answer to is me â€“ which is sometimes a bad thing because I tell me that I can have whatever I want whenever I want. 😉
I probably should have spent the money on an AlphaSmart Neo instead of shoes, butâ€¦oh well.
Worked on the Winter Rose contest more. Iâ€™ve got all the judgeâ€™s score sheets made up and ready to plug in the scores. Iâ€™ve also got the scores plugged into each category matrix. So lots of good progress there. I havenâ€™t been able to work on the dragon story much since Iâ€™ve been busy with the other.
I did watch most of the hockey game last night â€“ Stars won in a shoot out. After the first period, I watched the movie Flightplan. Good movie. I enjoyed it.
Not much else to blog about today other than Iâ€™m so behind on reading blogs! I havenâ€™t been neglecting you, I promise. Just been busy lately.
Okayâ€¦ off to work and I need coffee.
