Kicks

Hot damn, I'm in a good mood today. I dipped into Ross last night on a whim and wound up with a $12 pair of Converse. Now, I feel a little sketchy buying Cons since Nike bought the brand, but they've written this pair off already and I needed new sneakers. And wearing new kicks always puts a little spring in my step. It reminds me of going to the Buster Brown store at the mall every year before school started as a little kid, picking out my style, getting my foot measured with that metal sliding thing (do stores still use those?), and having a new pair to show off.

On top of that, you couldn't hope for a prettier North Florida day. I walked out my front door and the sky nearly knocked me flat. Everything's clean and cool, and V89 was playing Velvet Underground on my way into work. Run run run run run...

That last comment is almost certainly spam, but since I've never got spam in Portuguese before, I thought I'd keep it.

Ha! I read your blog occasionally and I really like it. I had to post about the $12 Converse. I got a pair, too! They were staring at me on the shelf and I couldn't believe it. I feel a little weird wearing them because I feel like I stole them but there they are and there they'll stay. I heart them.
