I just realized my moral compass is actually kind of fucked up when applied to shoes.

I'd have sex with unpleasant people for these boots.

If I was wearing them during sex, I might not actually notice anyone else's existence, so you see how this works out.

This can't end well. I need my obsession with computers to return now, please. I just don't think that discovering my one true shoe should involve Christian Louboutin you know?

This has been a message from my lack of willpower. And luckily, from all the credit cards I cut recently. No, I didn't go looking for them desperately, so please don't ask. Or stare resentfully at the garbage cans or anything.

BTW work hates me, so if I am quiet, it's mostly because I'm trying to drown myself in the sink at work. What I am saying here is, would mental health be a reason to buy these? If you know, it saved me from a terrible sink accident?

Luckily, I am saved from boot-lust by my more practical urges. (Which are: "holy fuck, is that how much they cost?" and "if I tried to take a step in those I would fall flat on my face and break my nose. And possibly both ankles, too.")

having said that, those boots really are the sex and leather ideal.

*flails* Oh honey. They are ASTOUNDING.

... I have an ambition. I will have a wardrobe that, apart from sweats and jeans for relaxing in, will be CUSTOM MADE FOR ME. I've had to be very stern with myself about "I WILL HAVE SAVINGS BEFORE I BUY ANY OF THIS OMG".

And then I discovered that there are people who custom make shoes. Including a truly fabulous pair of boots (the second pair down)

Those are beautiful, beautiful boots. I'm a sucker for unexpected hits of colour on the sole of footwear. Especially that red. Yum.

See, I have the soul of a philistine, because I look at those and go, "Hmm, look an awful lot like some Newport News was offering a while back, in the choice of black or red patent leather, for a hell of a lot cheaper..." (Yeah, actually, they still have a few in clearance, sizes 5 through 6.5, red only.) And the reason why I never bought a pair of the tall patent leather ones myself is that I can't stand actually wearing heels...

If I ever decide to end it all, I will buy those boots. Seriously, with my bad leg if I tried to walk in heels like that I'd fall and break my neck.

I think the saddest thing is that those boots are worth far more that my pathetic excuse for a car (I paid $300 for this care and vastly over paid).

Who wouldn't have sex for those boots? I mean, really. That's not a fucked up moral compass, that's just good sense, man.

...OK, they're pretty. But the question you must always ask yourself at these times is, do you actually have anywhere you can wear them to?

2010-05-19 04:41 am (UTC)
I would create events for them. I'd wander around wearing them with pajamas. I will buy skirts just to show them off.

....okay, probably there would not be many events that would qualify, no.

Bootses! Whee!

Unfortunately, due to a rather sever limp, I can't wear heels like that. :( But if I could? Those would be mine.

i have the perfect pj's to wear with them! and seriously, i don't want to be reading about your untimely loss in a fatal sink accident....

2010-05-19 02:26 pm (UTC)
That is a good point. No one wants to read about death-by-sink!


2010-05-19 05:13 am (UTC)
a) how unpleasant? unappealing physically? off-putting personality? moral corruption? megalomaniacal tendencies?

b) those shoes are terrifyingly beautiful.

c) What I am saying here is, would mental health be a reason to buy these? If you know, it saved me from a terrible sink accident?

-price of shoes (s) = hours of therapy* (t)

-hours of therapy needed to keep you from drowning yourself in the sink (d)

Assuming shoes prevent drowning:
If (d) > (t) then (d) > (s) therefore (s) is the reasonable option. Clearly.

Yes. Yes, they are. *tries not to grab them*

This can't end well. I need my obsession with computers to return now, please.

This is why I so like being a computer nerd who likes collecting spare parts. I spend hardly anything on shoes, but video cards? Homg, EVERY LAST DIME I HAVE. \o/

Also, please don't drown yourself in the sink. *hug hug*

2010-05-19 02:27 pm (UTC)
I know! I like that part! This boots thing is getting to me. I'm not even googling for the Android gemini this week!

1. Those boots are awesome
2a. I was about to say that I've had sex with unpleasant people for less, decided it didn't quite sound right, and have settled for...
2b. If those boots (okay, I want guys boots of equivalent hawt) were a post-coital present, I would not regret the worst sex I've ever had. I would probably repeat it, just in case.
3. If retail therapy reduces suicidal tendencies, I'm all for it. Just remember that unpayable levels of credit card debt can increase suicidal tendencies.

That is a truly great philosophy, right there.

Those boots are awesome. Fortunately for my peace of mind, I can't walk in heels that spiky and thus don't have to suffer from OMG, WANT NOW!!! quite as badly.

Oh, if you have to discove your one true shoe, I think it really should involve Christian Louboutin. I mean, would those boots be right without the bright red soles? I don't think so.

2010-05-19 02:38 pm (UTC)
That is very true.
