Vegan Shoes

July 14, 2010

Still here, just took awhile.  Blogging would be much easier if I had an iphone...(hint, hint)

While browsing on Etsy, I came upon this brand new shop.  Vegan shoes!  No they don't look like those shoes that are floppy and unstructured soles that you should not wear outside.  These are real shoes and they are so damn cute!

They are eco-friendly!  How you say?  Made primarily from used car tires.  At least you know they are going to wear well and will be extra grippy.  Maybe they will make me run faster?

Of course you know this is the pair I would get.

Hurry and check out Extraseed!

Wheel of Fortune

March 10, 2010

Oye, I just wrote this long boring post and I went to add an image and decided against it and tried to come back to the original post.  Now I just writing terribly bad run on sentences.

Okay, the gist of it was that I registered my boyfriend to be a contestant on Wheel of Fortune.  (When I say Wheel of Fortune in my head it comes out like the show, lots of people enthusiastically shouting WHEEL. OF. FORTUNE. in unison)  Don't worry, he asked me to register him.  Why you ask?  Becasue he is  damn good at those puzzles.  (If only he could just understand me)  Also he can't remember things that need to get done and I am online most of the day.
