Where My Feet Take Me
Over and Around
Around, Over and Through

I ordered a pair of the Vibram Classics in the hopes of having a second set for when the KSOs are in the wash or, say, when it is really hot and tight, black fabric isn't so comfortable. I received them today and slid them on only to find that, Alas and Alack, they were both uncomfortable and too big. Back to the mail with them, with sadness and a little remorse. I requested an exchange for a set of Sprints in Red and Black and a size smaller.

I trust that they will fit. Oh yes. Or I shall destroy the world with my wacky, segregated toes.

Addenda:
1. I like best about today was not having to work super late.
1a. Yay for smooth-ish deadlines.
2. Annoyance and an odd sense of tragedy have replaced anger. Mostly.
2a. I'm still angry.

I admire your feet for taking you exploring to places that make for such nifty pictures.

Smooth-ish deadlines are fantastic things. Possibly made even more fantastic by their rarity.

This is just down the street. I was pressed for time as I had duck curry coming! However! I was climbing into a corn field. So...

You know.

Corn.

Also: I'm good at managing deadlines. I tend to do my work up front and ease out the week of the deadline. Course, busy developers tends to ensure a late night or two waiting for fixes .

Eh? I'm cool chilling with internet access waiting for compiles.

Duck curry? Where did you find duck curry?

Corn! Actually, after reading Still Life with Crows by Preston & Child, I don't think I'll ever look at a corn field quite the same way. Too much potential creepiness lurking between the stalks!

The real trick seems to be in trying to predict how much last minute work you'll end up with right before the deadline. Sometimes no amount of planning and preparation can compensate for being handed additional work the day before it's due, lol.

I'm angry too, grrrrrr.

I'm sort of loathing the weekend. Fox is off to Missouri and I was supposed to spend a few days with her in Milwaukee.

Must find adequate distraction lest I give into some silly loneliness.

If I was there I'd make you go on a photo outing with me!

I think we both know we'd just stay in and take pictures of your daughter.

Frankly I'm a bit shocked regarding 2a. Didn't see THAT coming at all. : / But I have been in a cave of studying and being away and busy for like a month, so I guess I wouldn't have?

Dunno. Anyway, my condolences.

Welcome back to the world! We have drama.

I'm still mostly cave-bound, Cass is staying an extra 3 days because they missed their plane.

But yes, apparently you has drama in copious amounts. Who is the other relationship lost this week?

Apparently being a mature adult is tough for some.

Want me to kneecap someone? I'm in the mood to kneecap someone.

This picture is AWESOME. I really, really love it.

Oh no, I'm not wish pain, hurt or destruction on anyone or anything. Though I'm feeling really down on polyamory right now. Maybe you could rough it up a bit?

How about I fly down there and you rough me up a bit? >:)

What do you like about the photo?

Sadly, I'm otherwise occupied. The male companion is flying down to see me for the weekend. He'll be here in ten hours! Besides, you already know my feelings on the poly thing. It's like religion and politics. You just don't discuss them if you have differing views. ;)

I love the colors, the angle, the focus on the flower... it's a great composition. My monitor at work is really dark so I can't tell what's going on on the fence, is it someone's leg? But something about this picture is just so beautiful to me, I'd actually consider buying a print of it (if I had any money). :P
