Callooh! Callay!

Hello, summer break has officially begun over here and I have been trying to spend less time on the computer. You know, more time doing real things and less time doing pretend computery things. Sometimes those real things take the form of watching old episodes of Bewitched and eating pork rinds, or reading Jenny Lawson's book and eating roasted chicken nuts, but whatever. IT ALL COUNTS.

(And by "roasted chicken nuts" I mean mixed nuts -- walnuts and cashews and soforth -- that taste like roasted chicken. That is a thing I invented. You take some raw mixed nuts, right, and you toast them in a pan with sea salt, freshly ground pepper, garlic powder, rosemary, thyme and sage and also a little ghee or butter or olive oil. Well, what would YOU call them?)

I bought these shoes ridiculously cheap on Woot:

Like, seriously cheap. Crazy cheap. I've-spent-more-on-crappy-fake-shoes-at-Payless cheap. I ordered them one size too big and I constantly live in fear that my right pinky toe will escape its little compartment, because my right foot is about half a size smaller than my left foot, but other than that I love them. I honestly had no plans to wear them outside the house except maybe to walk the dog at night (they are very reflective) but I got so many negative comments on this photo when I posted/showed it to people that now I want to wear them ALL THE TIME TO ALL THE PLACES. Because that's how my brain works.

I get a little weird in the summer. I probably should have warned you.


  1. Stay weird, Badge. Always stay weird.

  2. I've seen people RUN in those!
    Love the chicken nuts!
