My very good friend Nomes took me for coffee and brunch today.
“You’ve been blogging quite a lot recently” she observed.
You may also have similarly observed this. I am on a mission. I have a shoe challenge to complete and a very limited time to complete it in. I also have 3 kilograms to lose and no one else to bore with my masochistic tales of running and not consuming nice things other than you lot.
So here’s the deal. I have 47 days to wear and blog about 59 more pairs of shoes.
The Shoe Challenge rules include a direction to
After 14 February 2011 I have to either sell, sling or donate the unblogged about pairs to charity.
“How am I going to manage this task?” I asked my husband.
“Just bung up a few pictures, write about the first thing that comes into your head and I’m sure that that will do just fine” he said.
Today’s shoes were not the best choice that I could have made for meeting Nomes for coffee. Cityrail trains were running to a lazyarse holiday timetable (ie ten minutes late). Though I am often late, I really REALLY hate being late. Nomes had kindly arranged to meet me at Cafe Dov in Potts Point, mere metres from Kings Cross Train Station. The tree roots are surprisingly hazardous round those parts especially when wearing platforms. So I sashayed as quickly as I could while trying not to fall over.
Before I got there Nomes sent me an @reply on Twitter as follows:
I am very disappointed that she didn’t wear these. They are bright red and smell of bubblegum. She’d have been fighting shoe fetishists off with sticks even at lunchtime.
So seeing as I am hearing just writing about the first thing that pops into my head – the running is still going. Today’s soundtrack was pretty apt:
Girl it’s a long time when you’re running
