These boots aren't made for walking!

It seems the people have spoken.

Fishnets it is!

The boots are a no-go, though. I dug them out earlier today and tried them on. I'm glad I did, because wow, are they ever uncomfortable! I could handle them for a couple of hours at a party, but for several hours, no way. It's not the platform part--platform shoes are a 5-foot-tall gal's best friend! It's just how enclosed they are. I'd prefer to go barefoot! So instead of the boots, I have a pair of silver wedge sandals that, as Dr. Evil would say, are quasi-futuristic. They'll do quite nicely, and it's not too cold to wear them. It seems that I've reached the point where comfort trumps glamour. I'm cool with that--I can still get duded up when I need to, but I refuse to squish my toes into a pointy shoe!

I also couldn't find the skirt I was thinking of, but found one that I forgot I had! Pink and black, baby. So I'm all set. Someone suggested finding a bouffant wig, and it's not a bad idea, but it would probably drive me crazy. I'll stick with a ponytail or something. And yes, I'll make sure Ken takes a picture!

I hope everyone had a good day! I went to Circuit City to buy more memory today, because heaven knows I'm losing mine! SD cards for my camera were on sale, and so were flash drives, so I picked up a few more of those. While I was at it, I saw that the new Indiana Jones movie was out and on sale, so I got that since we never made it to the theater to see it. "The Untouchables" was also on sale, so I thought I'd continue to build our Mob movie library.

I've got a thing or two to do--and I still haven't read many blogs yet today!--so probably more later. Where the heck did the day go?


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing the picture. Make sure Ken takes plenty of photos!

    Have a blast!

    I agree with you about the shoes.

    Hugs, Rose

  2. sounds like fun
    go for the ponytail!
    and keep your feet sweet.....

  3. I can't wait to see the picture!

  4. Hi Beth,
    Sounds like you really scored at Circuit City. Meanwhile, I look forward to the photos ...

  5. Reading blogs ia all consuming. LOL. I don't know how folks who work keep up at all. I try to check and read several times a day so I don't get behind again.
    Your outfit sounds mag.
    Hugs, Joyce

  6. I'm sure you'll choose something nice. Although I enjoy dressing, there's just some days that my 2008 body doesn't cooperate with my 2007 wardrobe. In a concert, I think I'd feel more comfortable with sneakers.


  7. you'll look great no matter what you wear...i can not wait to see the pic either! XO

  8. Holy Moly spotters, you are sure demanding a lot out of me on my day off :o)

    I understand, lots of pictures. I will pretend I am a paparazzi LOL

  9. sounds like you will have a great time at the concert!! good outfit too! have to agree about the boots; you'll probably be on your feet a lot; you want to be somewhat comfortable


  10. Good call, on the wardrobe, and on the films! I love just about any movie with Sean Connery, and of Any Indiana Jones movie! After you see it, let me know what you think! I bought it the other day as well, but I went to see it at the Drive In with the family. Mj was alert for my movie, but fell asleep for Ironman. It was a good flick, and I still enjoyed going. I have great memories for all 4 films, so it is hard to say which is better. I favor three, because of the cast, and story line. Off to your next entry.


  11. Your outfit sounds bitchin!!! I can't wait to see the pics. I have opted for comfort over glamour myself.

    My toes started to turn from wearing pointy heels for so many years! Thank goodness the little piggies are out in the good ol' farm air now, breathin' free!!!

  12. Can't wait to see the pics. I promise not to drool too much ;O)
    (Sorry Ken)

  13. As I work my way back from recent to older posts, I am wondering what 'untouchables' you are referring to? the LA ska band, or Kevin Costner's remake?

    It is cool that you are a B52's fan! They have consistently made any day brighter for me!

  14. Oh, you're there right now. Hope it's as great as I think.
    Waiting for the reviews and photos!
