Happy Feet Friday

7:44 AM Edit This 15 Comments »
I cannot match yesterdays energy in a post, so you get crap today. These are my new shoes. I love them. And I can dance in them.

Also, I am wearing my new pink butterfly underwear that does not creep up my ass. This is an important feature in my life. Pink underwear. What? That they don't crawl up my crack is not as important as the fact that they're pretty. As far as I'm concerned, this is what feminism is about. The fact that I can bash the patriarchy and talk about pink panties in the same breath. It's my prerogative.

AND, I'm going to talk more about my cats. So there. Last night was again, not a good night for me. This insomnia thing can go away any time. But it's not likely to, so I'm just going to continue to complain. Kiki? She doesn't like it when her momma tosses and turns. The look of disdain, the swish of her tail and she's out of there. Dax? He's such a lover. He has to be touching me when he's sleeping. When he was a kitten, he'd sleep on my neck and curl inbetween my breasts. That's where he fit the best. He gets anxious when I can't sleep. He paces, waiting for me to alight somewhere and when I don't, he does his best to "help," which usually includes him lying spread eagle on top of me as in, "If I lay here, she'll calm down and stop moving around." Poor thing. He ended up lying in front of my face last night, sitting and staring at me, willing me to sleep with his eyes.

So when I get off work at three, I will most decidedly be taking a nap. And then? I get to take one of my girlfriend's daughters to her junior high dance. Her mom is working and she's horrified by the thought of her father embarassing her in front of her friends. Oh, the angst! I love that I am a trusted adult in her life. There's nothing much better to me than to be trusted and respected by a child.

It's so fun to be the "cool" grown up. My niece is 16 and her father (my brother) overheard her telling her best friend that "my uncle is pretty cool. He's got the best MP3 collection".

That's one of the best compliments I've ever got. :)

Awesome shoes!

Here's to the insomnia going away soon so you AND the cats can get some sleep!

Have fun at the dance!

My shoes today are similar (but in no way open).

When do the pictures of the pink butterfly underwear start coming?

Okay, I'll be quiet now.

I love that they have butterfly undies for full grown women. And that said full grown women are asked to escort a teenager to a dance. The world is now complete! =)

I love your crap.

That came out wrong...

You and those butterflies are a hoot! I must say, I like those shoes! I need a black casual pair with a little "kick" to the design. I have so many heels all of a sudden that I don't even wear 'cos I'm all about comfort.

Have a great weekend!

Will you take my 3yo? I mean, just in general?

I looooove those shoes! WANT

I am wearing my blue underwear with ladybugs on it. I'm going for a massage later, and I always try to make sure I've got on undergarments that will amuse my massage therapist.

Pink panties with butterflies on them? Holly Hobby lives.... :)

I'm wearing pink with a lace top.

I hope you sleep tonight, love. xo

I love those shoes

the day has been so long I can't remember what underwear (if any) I am wearing

and to be a cool adult in a teenagers life is almost as cool as being a cool mom of a teenager

Nice shoes! I gots me some too but the dern things were too narrow. Back they went-dammit.

Twinkie said...

I usually agree in your taste of shoes but for some reason those do NOT look comfortable. They look stiff. Which is impossible since you just said they are comfortable enough to dance in but still.

They are CUTE though.

Dingo said...

Are you there just as chaperone or are you actually going to be busting a move on the dance floor?

Love the shoes, they are fantastic.

Love my animals. They make me happy. I was actually thinking yesterday while I have both of my dogs lying down on the floor, each head in one of my feet, how much I love them and how much better they make my life
