This is a great cause in support of a great lady and her family. Please consider helping out however you can, even if it is just by posting information about this on your own site.
Now on to my own business. … Um… I got nothing. Not because I have nothing to talk about, but because I have no time. Understand I was studying in the library on campus until 1:00am Saturday night, and until 2:00am Sunday night, and I still have tons of work to do. So, since I don’t have the time to put into a post worthy of you wonderful readers – and I certainly don’t want to subject you to utter crap banged out in two minutes in a frenzied rush as I stress about how much work I have to do – I am going to try something a little different. I am going to make you guys write the post for me.
I heard that “Oh no she didn’t!” out there. But yes, she did. Here’s what I’d like from you:
First, what did you do over the weekend? (It must have been something good, ‘cause I know y’all weren’t here commenting… *ahem*) Give us a recap of the who, what, when, where, and why of your Saturday and Sunday. You can even make stuff up – we won’t know.
In exchange for your telling me what exciting lives you were leading while I slaved away in the dank, musty corners of a really old building filled with really old books, I present you with a special, one-time offer: You may ask me any one question and I will answer it when I respond to the comments.
(You do all know that I respond to your comments, right? Two days after the post, like clockwork. Just thought you should know, in case you weren’t aware.)
So yeah, what information have you just been dying to get from me? What have you been wondering about for weeks but too afraid to ask? What do you most want me to blather on endlessly about? (Dangling prepositions, maybe?) Go ahead, bring it on, do your worst, and all those other silly challenging statements that amount to “Ask me a damn question already.”
Thanks for helping a stressed grad student out. Hit comment now. No, wait, don’t hit it yet. First, as per the requests from OP and Charcoal, I give you a link to some funny cats. Seriously, it’s about two minutes of your day, and you will not be sorry. These cats are hilarious. OP, Charcoal and I had tears streaming down our face because we were laughing so hard at this thing. You know you want to watch it. Just make sure you come back afterwards.
Back now? Okay, now hit comment. Oh, wait, no, still not yet. See the shoes first…
Day 11 of LaBloShoeMo: The Black Boots
Because I feel guilty for not giving you a real post, I offer you my own pair of Badass Boots. I loves me some knee-high boots. They’re sexy in this sort of kick-ass girl-power way, and in the winter, they’re a good choice to pair with skirts (‘cause you get to wear a skirt without subjecting half your legs to the freezing cold air (yes, I live in California and the concept of “freezing cold air” is pretty much out of my realm of understanding, but I’m cold, so it’s freezing to me)). These particular boots I bought way back in freshman year of college (holy heck – that was a looong time ago!). Then I lost them in Vegas, so I eventually bought a new pair. The new pair, however, was never as good as this pair – they were stiffer (these are smooth and flexible), the toes were more square (they pinched in on the sides), and the heels were thinner (which put more stress on the feet when I walked). All in all, the second pair wasn’t nearly as good as the first. But then Mom found the first pair, and all was well with the world.
Also, because these boots are so awesome and I love them so much, I decided to play dress-up and give you an outfit for these. Understand that I would not actually go outside in the current weather in this outfit, but it looks good anyway, right?
Of course, going out in this outfit might heat things up enough that the weather wouldn’t matter…
