|12:25 pm - It's in my friggin' EYE|
Woke up groggy this morning, read my friends list, saw everybody crying about massive snowstorms all over. Didn't bother to look out my window, because seriously... what are the odds of it being a winter wasteland everywhere from the 33rd parallel to the 43rd parallel?
...apparently 1:1. It's God's bukkake party out there.
Also, I got new winter boots. This is not typically LJ-worthy news, except that these boots have solid steel plates embedded in the soles to make them puncture proof. I bought them in SPITE of this, because they were warm, waterproof, and altogether everything else I wanted. And they ARE good boots. They just also weigh a fucking TON. I feel like I'm walking around with cars tied to my feet. While this is bloody torture NOW while I slog through snow... a few more weeks of this, and I'll be able to kick in tanks.
Current Mood: blah
You know, hun, that's what happens when you don't swallow.
The fun thing about your new boots is that now, when I write my secret imaria
webcomic, I can have ninja!imaria knocking the shit out of bad guys with his steel boots! Do I hear "action figure"?
I would DIE with happy if I was in a webcomic. Or was ninja!imaria. Or kicked bad guys with my steel boots.
20cm of snow, oh man. Is the whole GTA gonna grind to a halt? Gonna call out the army?
Toronto will never live that one down.
That's what happens when we elect a fucking furniture salesman to mayor.
also, i feel kind of like i should be doing the *subtropical inhabitant* dance, but i don't really want to make anyone too jealous...and if i celebrate too much, it'll probably dump three feet of snow the week i'm in toronto next month.
20cm of snow shut down Seattle. :D
I want to see these boots.
No images exist online, I'll take pics at some point ;]
think of the mega hypothetical ass you could kick with those boots!
Once I can lift my legs that high, no-one will be able to fuck with me ever again. I'm walking on a pair of sledgehammers.
and thus did you hit upon the reason why all my *real* boots have metal plates (I don't count my casual I can still run after kids at a very good clip as boots)--yeah they weigh a ton and can be a bitch to walk in (up say 4 flights of steps...), but after a week or two your calves feel so much nicer.
I do not, however, recommend wearing them if you have a tendency to step on people's feet/hands. It's not easy to feel a person's toe/finger being ground to dust
or so I've been told and in no way shape or form tried this lovely trick out on my younger brother to see if it was true. which it is, but you didn't hear that from me. under your heel...
Them: "Nice boots."
You: "IM UP HERE!"
sexy boots get all the attention.

on a COMPLETELY UNRELATED note, i too would like to see these boots! and .. i mean, if jon wanted to upload pics of his feet in socks, i wouldn't object, either. not that i really care one way or another. really, i don't. not at all. but if he wanted to, i wouldn't object.
