I went out to lunch with my mom and sister. Ran in to a co-worker while at the restaurant. One that I really like too so it was actually a pleasant exchange.
Afterward, we went to the mall. I needed some sandals. I'm convinced my letter to Mother Nature will prove successful and I don't wear anything but sandals, flip flops or open toed shoes in the warmer months. Of course, I don't own a lot of shoes. I can use one hand to count the pairs of shoes I have and still have room for more, lol. So I only have a cheap $5 pair of flip flops that annoy me because they're cheap, shitty little things but you get what you pay for and at the time that was what I could afford. So, I was in search of sandals that won't make me cringe and that was pretty much my mission. Of course, I hate the mall but meh, I had checked several stores in search of sandals and came up with a big fat fucking nothing. I'm PICKY. I don't like girlie stuff and that generally presents a problem when I need to shop for stuff.
The first place I went was Hot Topic. They had some sexy as fuck boots I wanted and some sexy as fuck platform pumps I wanted too. At $95 and $65 though, they weren't what I was going to get. Also not what I had set out for and I just like to get what I want and be done. I didn't like any of the sandals they had. They all looked like someone had puked neon paint in stupid designs all over them. I gather from all the shit I saw today, neon colors are back I guess and ick. I'm so not wearing shirts that look like people puked neon splats of paint randomly all over them and then after it dried, put some design in the center of the mess. Not doing it with pants or shoes or anything else either.
Though while I was in HT, I did find some stuff I liked and decided to buy just because. I love Apocalyptica and have for years. They're a bit more popular now so they had one t-shirt on the band shirt wall. Which made me happy because it was pretty cool looking and I love the band. I wish you could suggest bands for them to find shirts for to sell, lol. Maybe I should just design my own for the bands I love that aren't mainstream enough. Hmm, there's an idea. I digress. I got that shirt and then I moved on to another wall I always have to look at in there....
.....Yeah, the wall that has the socks, leggings, arm warmers, gloves, scarves and all that stuff. If you've read here long enough, you know I freaking love socks. I have more pairs of socks than any person really needs. Some chicks have one hundred pairs of shoes. Me? Nah, I have three or four pairs of shoes but I have one hundred pairs of socks. Of course, that's a minor exaggeration but you get my point. ;) I saw about ten pairs I liked but settled on these two pairs......
Oh, you noticed there's a pair missing? How very observant y'all are. ;) If you didn't notice, no big deal. The missing pair are these little spikes I saw and liked. I used to have a pair similar to this but then sadly, I lost them. They aren't on the package because they're chillin' in my earlobes.
So that was all I got in Hot Topic. By then I was thinking I might just forget about the sandals since I got some other shit that I hadn't intended to get but then I was thinking on it and decided to go search out some sandals anyway. Why work so hard if you can't buy some small stuff you'll like?
I did find some sandals too. It was the only pair out of like fifty+ Famous Footwear had that I liked at all, lol. I'm picky, as I said.I also don't like the twenty+ pairs of sandals I saw that have that quark board looking wedge on them or whatever that crap is. Bleh. I wear a size nine to a ten depending on the brand and it's a little difficult finding shoes I like in my size. A lot of times I will find one pair of shoes I like and then they won't have them in a big enough size for me, lol. Anyway, here are the ones I got. Pretty simple and black of course. The Stars were what caught my attention. ;)
That concludes the picture show of my shopping extravaganza. Next time I go to the mall, I hope it's at the end of the year to knock out my Christmas shopping. *grin*
Come one, I KNOW more of you want to battle me on that silly little game I was talking about a couple days ago. MsRummy on MyBrute! Create your characters using that link (you know, so you can help me out and have fun too! *wink*) Unless you have already then hey, you rock and thank you! I'm slightly shameless, I admit that, it doesn't bother me, no need to mention it. I could be far worse things, after all. ;)
So, if you're a dork like me and read webcomics but some how don't read Questionable Content, you totally should. The Engineer turned me on to that webcomic several years ago and I've been a loyal reader ever since. It starts out kind of slow but it's awesome to see the art and the wit of the banter progress. I fucking love it. Pintsize and Hannelore are my two favorite characters, they're pretty awesome.
My post title comes from this song. =) I usually don't mention the song my title comes from but generally my titles are lyrics out of songs. I've had this song stuck in my head the last couple of days. It makes me chuckle.
