One (comfortable) step closer to "Sky Hag" status

I can't believe what I just did. I just bought
sensible shoes. All in all my shoes are pretty
sensible, but I am talking looks-like-slippers,
grandma-ugly sensible shoes.

I tried this pair on during a long sit last week, when
I put them on I felt like I was standing on a pillow-
they have little egg crates inside :) But I was NOT
ready to step into that level of
form-following-functionality, I walked around the
store, feeling as if I was in heaven, but decided
instead to find a better looking pair somewhere else.

I bought a $5 pair at goodwill to last me one trip
until I had time to go shopping, seeing my blistered,
red toes was all I needed to know the egg-crate shoes
are the ones for me. I tried some
cuter-yet-still-comfortable ones on, but chose these
anyway.

Why would a woman do such a thing? I can see an old
married woman wearing these, but a young vibrant
single gal like me should be in 3 inch fuck-me heels.
I am looking at it like suntanning, it looks pretty
now but makes you look ugly later on. Have you seen
fashonista feet as they get older? Deformed. I am not
kidding- daily wearing of high heels and pointy toes
make feet look fucked up (and less importantly hurt
like hell I imagine)

I decided that having ugly feet will be compensated by
my energy and attitude. I have been complimented many
times on my smile, but have yet to be complimented on
my uncomfortable work shoes. And when I wear
comfortable shoes I am more likely to walk instead of
taking the elevator or tram, so I think it is more
attractive for me to have a nice body in ugly shoes
than an ugly body in nice shoes.

So whats next? Mom Jeans?

mood: practical (too young to be thinking this way!)

Granny panties are comfortable too- maybe I should start wearing those

Not that I'm really in the film industry anymore, but I am supposed to be able to pick an Italian designer from 300 metres.

7 out of the 9 major studios are now run by women. If you can't talk shoes you're toast.

Diana Crabtree said...

you arent in the film industry anymore?

Yay, more time to bullshit with me :)

Satan said...

I still make films, my little films, but I can't say that I'm in the industry anymore.

Hence the time to go Blog-crazy.

Diana Crabtree said...

why'd you move on?

Diana Crabtree said...

I'm glad you did BTW ;)

Satan said...

The CEO of the studio decided I was superflous. He was wrong, but I wanted to make my own films and didn't go back. My production budgets (for my films) which were being backed by studio producers suddenly disappeared. I now work to raise budget for my films. Doh. Never piss of American producers during pre-production - but I think I've said that. It was a harsh lesson.

Diana Crabtree said...

That was recently?

You had said that recently

Satan said...

I was speaking retrospectively at the time. It was about 12-18mths ago.


Oh, and, Yay for Granny panties. *shudder*

Diana Crabtree said...

I am so worried about this step I have taken...does it mean I am going to become a "comfort" person who wears sweatsuits to the grocery store?

Diana Crabtree said...

with granny panties underneath?

Diana Crabtree said...

and the people who wear shoes like these are usually married

Diana Crabtree said...

OMG I'm never getting laid again

Satan said...

What's wrong with sweatsuits when shopping for groceries? It's not like you're on a date.

Diana Crabtree said...

speak for yourself

Satan said...

Maybe someone also wearing sweats will see the shoes and think 'Here's the marrying type'.

...happily ever after

Diana Crabtree said...

with no sex

Satan said...

I wasn't speaking for myself, I was asking the question 'What's wrong with it?'

Diana Crabtree said...

I meant I go on dates to the grocery store

Satan said...

Yeah right, I've heard of plenty of guys turning down sex with women. ; )

Satan said...

Really?!?! I usually buy dates at the grocery store : )

But, I've never been on one. That's just weird.

Diana Crabtree said...

LOL

well enough about how little sex I will be getting thanks to my new shoes LOL

I think that the studio thing will be a blessing in the long run

Satan said...

Oh yeah, It's great. I'm not ecstatic about the job but I really do earn a good living. More than enough to make little films. And, I've won awards. So they can go stick their budgets up their...

Satan said...

They haven't had an award winning director, in our budget range, for like 5 years...

Diana Crabtree said...

I take men on first dates there. We go by the milk and I say "skim honey, we want your sweet ticker to last a LONG time"

The problem is I think the stores I take them to are too big- they keep disappearing for some odd reason

Satan said...

mmm... yeah... I'm just goingto the produce section. I'll be back in 5 mins.

*run, run, don't stop running*

Diana Crabtree said...

thats what 2 of them said!

Satan said...

You tried it more than once????

*satan rolls eyes*

ever heard of going for coffee, or does Mel get jealous?

Diana Crabtree said...

But I thought theyed be back becuase I grabbed their wrist and said "you cant leave until you say you wuv me"

and they said "uh...I wuv you?"

Satan said...

LMAO

I'm just going to the produce section, I'll be back in five minutes. Oh and I wuv you.

*Satan disappears in a puff of smoke*

Actually, I'm going to have lunch with that gorgeous girl, with whom I'm cheating on you, who is also the wearer of sensible shoes. Note: We're not married.

Diana Crabtree said...

I tried the coffee thing too, I was really sweet, I said "we could drink this every morning together"

But they kept disappearing too, I think it was too much caffiene made them jittery

Satan said...

I'm starting to see a pattern : )

Diana Crabtree said...

Smart girl

Have fun :)

Diana Crabtree said...

I just want the boys to know I am a domestic type

Satan said...

Thanks, I did.

I think you should play up the angle of espresso loving, jetsetting, internationally renowned blog writing women of mystery!
