Nine

*i am still doing this.

*i am also still doing this, but i have fallen thousands of words behind.

*thanks to the awesome shopping skillz of my friend mama d, who found me free shipping and discount codes, the red boots have been ordered and are on their way!

*i like marvin gaye and all, but don't you agree that this is the least sexy song of all time? what would you do if someone leaned into your sleeping ear and said, "wake up wake up wake up wake up because you do it right"?

*did i tell you that the dog ban didn't pass? m and i took minnow to willard beach yesterday to celebrate!

*in other minnow news, he and i now have an official song. which means i sing it to him, and he wags his tail. also, plans are in the works to have that thingy removed from his eye and his teeth cleaned.

i can't even tell you all how affirming it is to get all this positive feedback on the boots. why didn't i think of making decisions this way years ago? i sure hope they fit!

I wholeheartedly applaud those boots, and I think that they will make you even more of a novel-writer. Because they are the sort of things an author would wear to a reading, and I would spend the entire reading wondering if it was kosher for me to ask, after the reading, not a question about what she read, but a question about where she got her boots. Me, I keep trolling Goodwill in the hopes that my imaginary dream boots will be there, in my size.

and what are your dream boots, julie? and what size do you wear?? cause maybe you want a boot scout scouring goodwills on this side of the bridge...

Well, my DREAM boots would be olive green and not high heeled and size 8. But any version of that would be acceptable. There was an article in the New York Times yesterday about how people are still being frugal, EXCEPT that they're buying fancy shoes, and justifying it by saying that, well, you know, we have to WEAR these things on our FEET, so they might as well be fabulous. It made me feel a lot better about my constant shoe scouting.

Went to Goodwill today and bought an ice cream maker instead of shoes. It looks clunky on my feet, but otherwise I think it was a good score.
