feed the man...man

i'm sorry, but don't you dare for one second say that these aren't kinda awesome. espesh considering the source. no, you're right, they aren't perfect, but they are pretty damn neat if you ask me. and you did, didn't you?
i found these while scouring walmart online to try to find at least one more pair of nearly the most perfect shoe i've ever purchased, and certainly the most often worn. if you've hung out with me more than once, i would imagine that you have seen these shoes. josh likes to tell people i shower in them.

sorry revolutionaries and protesters all 'round the world throwing tomatoes at walmart. i bought two pairs of these babies (i prefer the carmel colored ones) for a combined price of < $20, and after a year of concerts, festivals, walking to class, and stumbling around down town (including the shoe-demolition-derby aka SXSW), these shoes have become my inanimate besties--and i'm just now breaking in my second pair!

long live walmart (or at least my wonderful walmart shoes.)

the bell of the eye ball

so after seeing this sea of shoes post, i was inspired to play around with some make up. generally, i'm one to avoid eye make-up (save the occasional sweep of black eyeliner) because i forget i'm wearing it, rub my eyes like a three year-old, and then end up uglier than i would have been had i skipped the eyeliner. yada yada yada. so i saw the post, rushed home put on a sticky thick coat of red lips and started doodling on my eye sockets. i think it went rather well. i'm currently without camera, so i took some cheesy pictures on photo booth :)

attempt one:







this is from when my mouth ate the rest of my face. thought it was funny.




attempt two: 



the first was my favorite. i loved it so much, i'm probably going to wear it tonight while i play air drums and dance at hole in the wall. today has been such a gift--i've had the opportunity to cheelax, which was much needed. i stay busy all the time jocking them haters--somebody's gotta do it. (can someone tell me what "jocking" means? sounds like something i might need to know. oh and if you're wondering why i don't brush my damn hair out of my face, it's because i only did one eye with the second one. being symmetrical is way harder than anticipated.

anyway i just urban dictionary-ed "jocking on haters" and it is telling me that jocking means to either be flirtatious with or imitate. that being said, can anyone tell me why we are jocking haters instead of nice people? maybe it should be "jocking on my buddies" or "jocking on them nice people" or "jocking on them lovers." who's making this shtuff up?!

anyway, i'm off to lounge and watch trashy television in bed.

xoxo&happy trails
