I Wasn't Aware


That's enough celebrating.  I can't type in all caps, it drives me crazy because it looks angry.  Yesterday was Reptile Awareness Day and I clearly wasn't aware.  Poor bearded dragons should have gotten to celebrate, but I was lacking in awareness.  I might have to give them meal worms today to make up for it.  In the meantime, let's look at some reptile shoes.

So first the bearded dragon gets split in 2 and then we step on its face?  Sooooo rude.

Oh. Dear. Gods.  Why do these exist?  And who buys them?

I need a palate cleanser after that last pair.  Baby turtles (turtle baby shoes?) are much better.

Poisonous frog rain boots!

Zazzle really does have everything.  Orange gecko high tops.  Black, orange, and white were my school colors, and are the school colors for all of the nieces (3 different schools in 3 different towns, all the same school colors). I should get these for the nieces.

OK, I know dragons aren't real, but these were too cute to pass up.  No one said reptile awareness day was only for real reptiles.

Enjoy your Saturday, whatever it might entail, just please don't type in all caps.

As I was perusing pumpkin shoes yesterday I came across a pair listed as "quirky," so I thought that would be a good direction to head for today's post.

I can't imagine you're surprised that Irregular Choice shoes were some of the first to come up under this search.  There's a fine line between quirky and weird and they regularly blur that line.

These are actually kind of cute.  I get the quirky vibe, but I'm certainly not mad at them for anything.

I feel like this is a shoe that Ms. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus could totally rock. Not sure about anyone else, though.

Love the color, but the sad faces kind of scare me a little.

These were listed as quirky wedding shoes.  I'm a little frightened to see the rest of that wedding.

I find these intriguing.  I don't want a pair, but they're kind of cool, and the right kind of quirky personality could totally pull these off.

I've now thought and typed the word quirky so many times that it has ceased being a real word and turned into gibberish.

It's almost Halloween, so that means it's time for some pumpkin shoes!

I really want the hubby to wear these for Halloween.  He's such a spoilsport.

Pumpkin shoes for the Pumpkin Seed?

I would totally wear these if the hubby would wear the first pair.  Heck, I'd wear the first pair and be twins with him if I thought I could get him to go along with it.

These are rather strange.  And the frighten me a bit.  They pumpkins look more red than orange, which make me think  blood.

I would also wear these if they came in my size.

I think I might have posted this once before, but I still think it's an adorable picture, and it gives me the opportunity to post this one:

The one time in my life I've ever drawn something freehand and been 99% pleased with how it turned out.  And it's a fake pumpkin so I'm enjoying it again this year.

OK, I realize I titled the post "pumpkins" and then posted most Jack-o-Lanterns, but they're made of pumpkins, right?  Or maybe I should change the title of the post, but I'm too lazy.

I'm assuming you knew (or guessed) that this post was coming.  I already did fox and hedgehog shoes for the Pinterest Friend's Pumpkin Seed (the PF's PS?), so of course I have to do owls as well.

These 2 are very similar, and I think I've posted them both before, but they are just so colorful and happy that I had to post them again.

I'm wondering if these were specifically cut out of fabric that has a variety of owls, and if so, what do the rest of the adorable owls look like?

I love these colors.

I think I've also posted these before, but I just don't care! Because cuteness.

I had to give you both pictures so you could see the different angles, AND that they are corduroy! I love corduroy.

I also love owls, and the PF and her PS.  It's a love fest.

I'm posting on my phone tonight because my laptop is at the office because I went to the bank.  That sentence makes no sense, right? So, I went to the bank today to make a deposit. When I was done I got in the car and backed out of my parking space. So far so good, until I tried to shift into drive. I couldn't do it. I shifted into park and then couldn't shift at all. I tried turning the car off, and then it wouldn't start. So I  was stuck, blocking traffic in the bank parking lot. I called the hubby, and then had to start telling annoyed people I couldn't move my car out of the way. While I was waiting for the hubby, 2 very nice bank employees came out to help me push the car to a parking space, but of course we couldn't because it wouldn't shit into neutral. They both started googling the problem, and by the time the hubby got there they had found what to do and, along with the hubby, spent about 10-15 minutes getting it to actually work and moving the car while I called roadside assistance. The car got towed to the shop and the hubby and I took Uber home. My quick trip to the bank ended up taking around 4 hours and a lot of frustration. But those 2 guys were were incredibly nice and helpful, so this post is for them.

I dont really know much about men's shoes, but I like all of these, and they would all work with suits in a professional setting. Those men will most likely never see this post, but I'll send my thanks out into the universe anyway.

Shhhh...I have a not-so-secret secret:  I'm home alone today!  I'm still working, but it's just me and the puppies and binge watching Outlander while I do so.  Unfortunately it's because last night my tummy was a total mess and while it's better today I'm not really fit for company, so I stayed home.

Anyhoo, in today's search for shoes I decided to look up my maiden name.  For some reason I've never looked it up before, which seems crazy.  Also crazy?  The shoes that came up are all called "mafia" shoes.  This makes no sense to me.  How does Meckler bring up mafia?  Is there something my extended family isn't telling me?  Let's look at the shoes, shall we?

I like them, but do they say mafia to me?  They do not.  Very strange.

These also came up, which makes me feel a bit better about my last name (it IS still my last name because I hyphenated, dontchaknow).  These are the weird things I learn when I'm home along, apparently.

Liqueur, Anyone?

Today was a good day. First, it's been raining off and on all weekend, which for drought-ridden California has been delightful.  Second, I had lunch with some dear friends from St. Someone's whom I haven't seen in way too long, and that was even more delightful.  Third (and this is really only for segue purposes and not so much why today was good), it's National Liqueur Day.  I don't drink much at all anymore, so it's not that terribly exciting, except for this:

Liqueurs in shoe shaped bottles!  I have no desire to drink the contents, but think how fun these would look on a window sill.  Someone else can drink the liqueurs, an then I'll just fill them with colored water and use them as decoration.  Who wants to work on that for me?
