Flavia's showing off her shiny new shoes. I covet them. (I'm loving the return to shiny patent leather in juicy bold colors.)
But I don't have any glossy red heels ... yet. But I did get my backordered, asskicking boots earlier than anticipated:
Having such great asskicking boots makes me almost wish I had students this quarter because it would be so much fun to kick them around in these. Almost. I shall have to content myself with striking fear in the heart of the job market and bending it to my iron will.
(If I wore these to the MLA, would I be able to control my urge to smack some sense into pretentious and overbearing search committee members? I might have to stick with more sensible shoes.)
Updated because Blogger is letting me add pics again: Here's another shot showing off the heel for Flavia as well as my cute skirt. Still not the best angle. See why I need someone at home to take photos of me and generally admire my wonderfulness? Here's a better picture. And this is a boot I was tempted by, but ended up not liking as much. (there are many other nice boots on the site as well). Of course, no sooner do I get my boots then I get a catalog from somewhere else and the grass is greener here. Sigh. There are lots of boots I like over there too. Not that I have $400 to spend. Or need a bucketload of boots. Sigh sigh.
