I signed right up for NoBloShoeMo when Chris sent me an invitation. Fortunately the rules didn't actually insist that one post thirty days of shoes, because I can't seem to get around to getting photos off my camera every day, let alone taking photos of my shoes every day.

But here's a shot of the shoes I wear on a lot of days.

Comfy, if not so very pretty.


Those do look comfy, which is my main standard for judging shoes. Honestly, I look at the folks wearing Manolos and wonder about their quality of life. Appearance is, after all, only bunion deep.

I think this is a great shot, BTW: funny and thought provocative. It seemed like there should be a clever response to it, but it'll have to be one of your other Faithful Readers who comes up with it.

Er, make that "funny and provocative." It's always a mistake to edit one word at a time ;-)

Is it the dictionaries in the background that make you laugh, Patricia? I admit to never using the Black's Law and only touching the French dictionary in extreme circumstances. The barely visible grey American Heritage was my mom's in college and I use that one all the time, although I suppose I should begin to wonder when a dictionary becomes out-dated. My feet are conveniently covering up my husband's college Webster's dictionary, which I claim to think is inferior to my American Heritage and therefore I won't use his. The binding, at least, is superior on my much older dictionary.

And yes, bunions -- I am cursed with the worst of my parents' toes. I have both slightly webbed toes and bunions. I never wear pointy-toed shoes, although I secretly think they look kind of pretty.

It's something like the juxtaposition of Black's and the French -- sort of a "Magna Carta to Napoleonic Code" thing going on, I guess.
