good for a laugh

can you guess which one is my fave?

Tuesday, November 27, 2007


i hemmed and hawed about participating in NoBloShoeMo this year. actually, i didn't give it much thought until the month already started, then i was thinking, "oh, but i don't have nearly enough shoes do complete it without repeats!"

uh, i was wrong.

i have more than enough shoes (wait, there's no such thing as "enough shoes!") to go thirty days without repeats. that i've already purchased three new pairs this month (way to go, nordstrom half-yearly!) and am well on my way to buying another today (yay for DSW coupons given to you by your bestest friend that make shoes practically free!) [aside: this has got to be a record of sorts -- using parenthesis THREE times in a teeny paragraph?! /aside]

wanna see what i've bought lately? (it was a rhetorical question)

had to give this diesel pair a try, if only because they were such
a good deal (cheaper at macy's) and pretty darn comfy

but the truth of the matter is that i just can't be arsed to photograph my shoes on a daily basis, then post 'em. so i've only done it once.

but what's humorous about the whole thing to me is that the particular saturday morning on which i took this pic i was lamenting that i didn't have any brown sneakers. a quick look-through of the ol' closet revealed that yes, i indeed had brown sneakers that had never been worn. ooops. when i was in hawaii earlier this year we stumbled upon the greatest deals at foot locker, of all places. between their already marked-down shoes and my friend's cousin's discount, i walked away with these bad boys and their twin in black for a cool $17 a pair. had i not been blinded by DISCOUNTS! i would have purchased a few more pairs to sell on eBay to fund my shoe addiction.

cause, really? let's face it. it really is an addiction. and one for which i'm not ready to accept help.

movie madness

i've long said there's no therapy like retail therapy. sometimes said in jest, i do tend to believe in the healing powers of flexing your credit (or cash) muscle.

which is why this is on its way to me.

along with 10 hd-dvds to get me started. and now i feel like one of the cool kids that can change her netflix profile to reflect the "hd-dvd" status.

movie life at casa de bee may never be the same.

i'm thankful for all of you!

a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has offered thoughts and prayers.

my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer this morning. i've been told countless times today that "it's not the death sentence it once was," and while i know these people mean nothing but the best, it's not exactly comforting.

she is meeting with a surgeon for a consult next week and likely will have surgery shortly thereafter.

right now? right now this is all so surreal. like i'm detached from the whole thing. i know that being there for her and being supportive is what she needs and i will do that the best i can.

let's hope things look up soon, mmm?

jump the shark

i was originally a fan of the ironic t-shirt fad, but i'm pretty certain that ship has sailed. not just because i'm tired of them, but because the best way to know a fad has ended is when people the fad was not geared toward start to participate in said fad.

picture this, if you will: a stroller-pushing, heavy-set, middle-aged caucasian woman wearing this

tight in all the wrong places. can you picture it? well i saw it live and in the flesh, so to speak. do you think she knew that it was an album reference "cleverly" disguised by some wizard at a t-shirt company?

i think it's pretty safe to say it's jumped the shark.

thinking good thoughts...

i normally don't do things like this, but i'll make an exception for something so important.

my mother is having a biopsy on her breast tomorrow (post abnormal mammogram last week, and suspicious sonogram this week) so if you have any spare positive thoughts/prayers, they would be greatly appreciated at this time.
