I'm not talking about flats or Vans (my shoes of choice, really)...but I'm talking shoes that look like they have an invisible heel.
Now, my close friends prolly know me as a heel hater, I can't really walk in them, I've sprained both of my ankles so heels just suck for me anyway...
I'm into really cool matrixy futuristicky wear, but damn. This looks cool..I just ...i just...i think this might be setting us back some.
Here's someone else's blog on actually trying them on
MORNING AFTER EDIT:
So the more i think about it, the more pissed I get.
I mean, the thing is, people are paying top dollar for this..you know these things aren't cheap.
I believe that if you're going to make it harder to walk AND take an integral part of the shoe away (like the heel), it should be a lot cheaper. Then I might think about it. If you're gonna make me wear those shoes, I'll wear it if they're like...$10.

Gadgets to help you survive cheap hotel rooms
By the way, It can happen in expensive rooms too.
And btw>btw, I'm blogging a LOT today in between calls & paperwork & being sick. I think it's how I cope with stress.
me: there goes your theory
me: what is that
Kristin: being thrown out of a window
Kristin: you want to hear something really embarassing
Kristin: i learned that word from superpoke
Kristin: SLIDE educated me
me: i didn't know that superpoke was also educational.
Kristin: it's bad
me: I just thought it was annoying.
Kristin: yeah, it IS! thats why i removed it from my applications, but not fast enough as I subsequently learned from it after doing a million retarded things to my friends....
Kristin: i hate that i ever used it
me: I think i maybe threw ONE sheep
Kristin: :-) i think we all did
He left this on a bright green super post it note on my monitor:
I believe your character
is sub-par and your
manners are lacking.
Your #1 Nemesis,
I anticipate more. I've left him 2 notes, and this is his first one. He either left it when I was away from my desk or when I was sick.
So far he's one of the few people I know that can actually ninja up on me. And that scares me.
END OF DAY EDIT:
I decided to take a quick snapshot of it on my webcam. It's real, people.

You ever feel so upset/angry/bored that all you wanted to do was take it out violently on something?
Are videogames not real enough, and are you already out of Ikea plates to smash?
You can pay to go and smash the shit out of things now. Here.
I really want to go to San Diego now. How badass would a smash trip on the way to Tijuana be?!
edit: apparently they offer discounts "We offer police, fire, military, student and senior discounts. Just remember to ask!*"
..I just imagined police officers shooting the shit out of plates.

Berna: I *could* start working out at the Marina location
Berna:they have classes at 6am and shit
Berna: not that i'd necessarily GO at 6am
Berna: maybe in conjunction with my runs down there
Berna: i dunno
me: is the fact that it's in the marina and might turn you into a full fledged marina chick holding you back?
Berna: yeah kind of
Berna: i mean
Berna:the two gyms that are closest to me
Berna: Chestnut St (Marina)
Berna: Alhamba (Russian Hill)
Berna: which is practically the same as the Marina.
Berna: GODDAMMIT I EVEN JOINED A MARINA-GIRL GYM!!!!!
me : i like to leave chat long enough to let you crumble down.
Unlike the Amazon price mistake that I talked about here, this is really the price.
The Optimus Maximus Keyboard is now available. At the hefty price of
Why the hell does it cost more than most laptops? I think thinkgeek puts it best:
You can also DEMO what it looks like, but you have to use your mere mortal keyboard and just imagine the awesome power under your fingers.
Yep. Time to take a second mortgage on your home or break into your kid's college fund. .....this amazing keyboard features a tiny screen on each key... that's 113 screens in all. What can you do with these tiny screens, you ask? Well, each key can change its image dynamically depending on what you're doing. Hold down SHIFT and all keys go uppercase. Run Photoshop and you can set it so each hotkey has an image representing its function. Set a key to monitor your CPU usage or display what iTunes track you are currently playing...
Just in case you don't believe me about the price, here's a screen cap of the price on thinkgeek.

This is kinda badass. Read the comments that the writer pulled to the top too, it clarifies some things.
William Yuan, a seventh-grader from Portland, OR, developed a three-dimensional solar cell that absorbs UV as well as visible light. The combination of the two might greatly improve cell efficiency. William's project earned him a $25,000 scholarship and a trip to the Library of Congress to accept the award, which is usually given out for research at the graduate level.12-year-old Revolutionizes the Solar Cell, Sep 2008
When I was 12, I think that I was reading vampire books and spending all my time on my computer.

Hmm. I wouldn't get a videogame for the same price as a Scion...especially when it's rated "E" for Everyone.
me: can you mix vodka INTO wine?
me: think about it.
kristin: i have...i don't htink it woudl be good at all
kristin: about as bad as my spelling in the last sentence
me: my right hand types way faster than my left hand
me: so atrocities such as htink and nad happen all the time
kristin: hmmmm, interesting, I always associated atrocities with bigger things like the holocaust and genocide...however misspellings have now entered this category....my world is upside down
me: now you make me feel like i have no perspective
me: like i have one eye.
kristin: or one slow hand

Anyway, I now have a loft bed. Technically i don't have a mattress but I have the frame up and ready to roll.
I've always wanted one ever since I was a kid, and I've always wanted to have on in an apartment on the mainland.
done. and done. and done.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't absolutely enthralled by this book, Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. I recently finished it on Saturday night on a train up to SF, and I had to buy the second book the next day.
It also doesn't help that it's a vampire book AND a romance book in one. I think it reminds me of something I would have been super obsessed about when I was 14, and that makes me like it even more.
The movie for the first book in the series comes out in November, and I am totally going to it, even if I have to go by myself.
They describe the main character, Edward, as being this really good looking, suave, beautiful man. They picked the right guy. It's not often that I read a book and picture characters and scenery the exact same way that the movie looks like it's going to.
This is one of those embarassing/proud moments for me.
