  • Joanie, I just spotted Gold Keds with a wedge heel! Is the universe trying to tell us something?!

      • Don't know if there are Keds brand gold lame specifically. But it's quite the understatement to say there are lots of retirees around here and some of those ladies sure love the sparkle. The older the more bling. I've seen LOTS of gold sneakers on that Keds style.

        An idiotic story from prosecutor days (the short version) is that I lost a leash law trial to a little old lady in rhinestoned pants. Judge was clearly hypnotized...
        Breathe. Move forward.

        I just eat what I want...

          I guess the upside is the sprinting. Because I'm not going to sprint in public. Except maybe in the cemetery. That would be for the tourists. "What the hell spooked her?" heh

          Whoever you saw in the media getting physical during today's shopping, it wasn't me! I have been here all day, cooking the fixins I bought for TDay dinner just in case we couldn't go out. The worst thing about going out to eat on Thanksgiving, as I have discovered today - no leftovers!!! Which is why I am cooking turkey, stuffing, etc., today - I miss them!

          Stay warm down there!
          It actually got normal for winter here. 56 degrees this afternoon. That I can like a lot. I'm with you on leftovers. That one article shows a turkey sandwich, then goes into a long tirade about how dry they are. But I remember those turkey sandwiches, and with a big scoop of cranberry sauce and a ton of mayo, they're delicious. I also used to make a mush by reheating bread stuffing, adding some chopped up pieces of turkey and then topping the whole thing with cranberry sauce. Yum (though ugly).

          Could be. I had a pair of platform saddle shoes in high school. I think it was those shoes that set me on the path of odd footwear.

          I'm going to see who owns Keds and put a couple of dollars in their stock.

          Wow - I'm impressed. Rhinestone pants - you have to figure that a little old lady in rhinestone pants deserves a little nulifying.

          I've posted this before, but it seems apropos:

          Warning
          by Jenny Joseph

          When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
          With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
          And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
          And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
          I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
          And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
          And run my stick along the public railings
          And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
          I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
          And pick flowers in other people's gardens
          And learn to spit.

          You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
          And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
          Or only bread and pickle for a week
          And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

          But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
          And pay our rent and not swear in the street
          And set a good example for the children.
          We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

          But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
          So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
          When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

              I love those!

              I would love to buy shoes online, but for now, half the fun is watching the sales people bang their heads on the counter while I make a decision. I'm also not above going into a shoe store, trying on tons of shoes, then going home empty handed and finding the identical shoe online. I suck as a customer - except that I'm always polite.

                  I wish they'd make those light-up-flashing shoes for adults. I would SO get some. And the ones with the built in roller skates--I'd get a pair of those, too.

                  At work we had one of those "get to know each other" things, and one of the exercises was to come up with our 6-word obituary. Mine was: "She liked to wear crazy shoes." Everyone agreed it was a good obit. My job has to do with airplane parts, so I wear jeans to work, and crazy shoes... I have a pair of Chuck Taylor's in blue plaid. And a pair of Puma's that are half black, half white with red trim. And sometimes I wear my Vibram 5-fingers to work (pink and black).

                    Sometimes kids get the best stuff. Those are awesome shoes.

                    I dread thinking what coworkers would have thought up for my obit. "She's crazy as a shithouse rat," would be my guess. I love the pink and black Vibrams.

                          • When I was in the hospital having my girls, I once asked the birth certificate lady for her war stories. She said she and the nurses had to really pitch long and hard to have an Indian mother stand up to her traditional family and change the name the grandfather had chosen as a first name from Ashit (ah-sheet) to something more Western and have Ashit as a middle name. The nurses were so worried about this child's future, as he was to be raised in the US.

                            • My child's first name is a chess piece and/or a bird (spelled the normal way). Husband chose it. No one, except my aunt*, has ever had a bad word to say about our choice, but reading these threads makes me nervous. His last name is our shared family name, we changed ours to match his after he was born (we were going to do it when we got married, but hadn't quite chosen a new family name then). His middle name is Apollo, because he is my sunshine.

                              *She looked at me strangely. I said he could change it if he wants to when he's older to which she replied: yes, he probably will. So far small boy LOVES his name, but that may well change. He's in a class of unusual names, so his doesn't stand out.

                              Also, you move country or work in a cosmopolitan area and you hear lots of unusual names (that are perfectly ordinary in the home country). I'm all for changing it up a little.
                              I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                              • I know which one you mean - Small Boy's name, and I honestly like it. As for my stories, I just think that Lemonjello is in a class by itself, the spelling of which just puts it over the top; and La-a's mom must honestly have been smoking everything in sight - that is some kind of puzzle, not a real name.

                                Don't worry - if Small Boy likes his name, that is all that really matters. His confidence will carry the day with anybody who might possibly be surprised/whatever.

                                First and Second have a swim teacher named Echo, and I honestly believe Second has short-listed that as a future baby name already.

                                I had discussions with hubby about possibly giving our kids a German name, but hubby absolutely nixed that as our kids were destined to be raised in the US, and hubby just didn't want our kids to have to pronounce and spell their exotic names for the seven-millionth time every day of their American lives - not that he thinks German names are weird. So two ended up with German middle names instead.

                                Have you ever seen the movie "Soapdish"?? Funny as hell, and the lead in the soap opera the movie is about is named "Bolt" - that cracks me up each and every time.
