i want a hallmark day too

I feel like a neglected child! I am apparently the only person in the office who didn’t know that my boss is on vacation for TWO WEEKS, having left last Saturday. What the hell! I’m his only direct report and he didn’t bother to tell me?! I have pressing issues that must be addressed! Who’s going to throw me emergency flow chart requests on my way to the Diet Coke? Who’s going to fill the ice cube trays when I inevitably empty them and forget to refill? Who’s going to sign my expense report??! I feel so unloved.

I have decided that whenever I buy myself an outlandish present, I am going to justify it because I don’t get honoured with a day of my own. Mother’s Day? Father’s Day? Not going to happen. Administrative Professional Day? I would be horribly offended if someone celebrated it at me, as I’m not an admin worker. IT Professional Day doesn’t technically (heh) exist, and doesn’t exactly fit what I do anyway. I’m not just missing the annual Hallmark occasions, either – I didn’t get a bridal shower OR a bachelorette party, and I’ll never have need of a baby shower. When do I get random cards and presents to celebrate ME? Where’s my breakfast in bed and margarita served out of a giant penis cup?

I have no use for either of those things, so I bought myself a new pair of Fluevogs instead:

so much awesome

There was a $40 gift card (to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Fluevog Shoes) in our media kits for the OPUS Porter launch: I figured it would be rude not to use it, so I went on an expensive but gorgeous spree yesterday afternoon. As much as I love my Qtees, it’s impossible to wear them for very long because of the utter brokenness of my feet. I am tired of life in flats, so I opted to try a lower heel: the shoe I bought has a 1.5” bamboo heel that is, so far, perfect. Hooray! I am slightly taller!

The shoes are fucking HOT on my scooter, too. That’s right; I’m admitting to something on my person being sexy. You can keep your edible underwear and clay ashtrays made in kindergarten – I’ve got sexy shoes and a scooter, so I win.

  1. Super cute!! I wish more Fluevog styles came in size 5/5.5 so I could partake. On the other hand.. I’m sure my bank account is better off.

  2. Those shoes actually made my breath catch in my throat for a moment. I think I said, “Wow,” under my breath. They are amazing! And they come in blue!

    I wish I had more money to spend on shoes.

  3. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  4. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Thanks
