After some initial skepticism, I have come to like the new bat decals on my car. I just needed time to adjust, I suppose.
My homeowners claim for hail damage was accepted. Insurance will cover the cost of replacing my roof. Yay! I'm just waiting for the $$$ to land in my account, then it's off with the old roof and on with the new!
Funny photo of "Ed" and me
I’m usually not one to post photographs of myself, but I rediscovered a funny one while sorting photos. I think it’s hilarious because it looks totally fake. It looks like someone badly Photoshopped an extreme closeup of my head onto a photo of Edward Scissorhands' doppelganger walking past the Hotel Monteleone.
I went to Target for a new toaster. Based on the display models, I chose a silver one. When I went to get one from the shelf, I saw that it was also available in purple. Squee! Purple toaster came home to live with me. Purple toaster makes me inordinately happy. I'm going to eat toast EVERY DAY! :D
|it's even shinier and more fabulous in person|
A bit of background on this one... I have bad feet (not bad as in they sneak off at night to rob liquor stores, but bad as in it's hard to find shoes that even come close to fitting them). Most shoes hurt my feet, though not all in the same way; I dealt with this by rotating among them - pinchy shoes today, squeezy shoes tomorrow, chafy shoes the next day, and so forth. In fact, I used to choose my outfits based on what shoes I could tolerate that day.
What changed? I took a job that allows me to wear New Rock boots every day if I want to. For me, New Rocks = comfort. My interest in them was originally piqued by the looks (Buckles! Shiny metal bits!), but it was the comfort that won my admiration. New Rocks are the exceptionally rare footwear that don’t make my feet hurt... and I love them for it. :)
A few days ago, I discovered that New Rock World offers custom boots. :o CUSTOM NEW ROCKS. Choose the colors, the type of sole, the buckle style... everything. This is dangerous information. I can picture my feet blissfully cuddled in purple-and-black New Rocks... the temptation to buy is strong! The cost is 280 Euros/$375 US, which is roughly 30% more than the already pricey cost of standard New Rocks. I'm typically very frugal, but love makes one do crazy things. ;)
Anyone else ever find something that was so perfect for you that money almost didn't matter?
