Radio Silence

By the time you read this (yippe for the auto-post function!), I will be knee deep in boxes, waiting for the cable guy to come and set us all up with the technical goodies that make this blog possible.

Feel free to discuss things amonst yourselves.

Topics that may be of interest:

  • Should women with thick ankles completely abandon the trend of ankle booties?
  • Does anyone else think the Celine Dion and her pediphillic husband are still totally creeptastic - even though they are both way old now?
  • I saw the REAL Von Trapp Family singers on Oprah yesterday. Edelweiss made me cry. Am I total sap or did you cry too?

Or you know, pick a topic of your choice.

Or, just watch this little video. That bust is a terrible product development piece that came out of our office many years ago. We named it Phil (note the name tag) and he became our very silent mascot. I bequeathed him to an old office mate. She introduced Phil to her dogs and posted the reaction/comment on Facebook. I could not stop laughing.

My silly dog meets old mascot Phil (he originated from the Philippines). Channy, how much do you miss our boy? You can hear me trying not to laugh; hope it is not too distracting but we found this hilarious.

As a woman with thick ankles, I like ankle booties to wear under my trousers. I have a body type that likes trouser styles that are firm in the booty but wide in the leg. The little booties look great without the discomfort of a taller boot. I wouldn't be caught dead wearing angle boots and a short skirt, however. Talk about making my legs look like a couple of tree trunks.

On the same subject, I hate boot shopping because my calves are too wide for the pretty boots and "wide calf" boots are made with ugly elastics or uncomfortable stretchy plastics instead of leather. Why can't manufacturers offer boots with both shoe and calf sizes so that we can have pretty boots, too? Bunch of size-ist jerks.

love the dog. am totally obsessive about all things"Sound of Music", thus I boo hooed. and as a woman with regular sized akles/calves, still I find some of the ankle boots look dorktastic on me.

Oh those Van Trapps always do it, don't they?!?! I went to their Lodge in Vermont years ago and was on the verge of tears a few times just staying there, listening to their music. Just gorgeous!
