Went to see X-Files: I Want to Believe last night (Eeeeeeeeee!!!). It was SHORT, but sooooo good, although it felt a bit like another tv episode and less like a feature film. But it was SO cool to see Scully and Mulder again that I DID NOT CARE. In my completely biased opinion, X-Files is one of the best tv shows ever made. It had a little bit of everything – scariness, humor, drama, the unexplained, and thought-provoking complicated plots. Thank you, Chris Carter. But I MISS IT.
Also…we were killing a bit of time before the movie started, and I am in need of a pair of shoes to wear with a bridesmaid gown (I had no training in how to be a girl growing up, so can anyone tell me – is it ok to wear black shoes with a navy blue dress?). So we wandered into a little shoe shop downtown and I found these:
Which are green patent and do NOT go with the navy bridesmaid dress. BUT they’re sooooooo cute. And they were 50% off, so I got ’em in black too. Damn Gemini tendencies. However…we did a bit of walking after that, and I now have blisters on each foot the size of a sixth toe. And they felt so comfortable in the store…so I have invested in some bandaids and am determined to wear these until they are tolerable, or until part of my foot dies and sloughs off.
I have possibly the worst legs ever bestowed on a woman, so when I find a shoe that even mildly disguises that problem, I have to get it. But S watched me hobble and sob to the car at the end of the night and thinks I am crazy. I pointed out that they merely needed to be broken in and this was NOTHING compared to Chinese foot-binding. Besides, they’re SO CUTE!
