Working at a magazine def has its perks. Today, I got an IM from my managing editor. It went something like this.
Ed: What size shoe do you wear?
Me: haha, ummmmm.... 7/7.5. y?
Ed: Yay!!! You win!
She proceeded to bring a Sam Edelman box to my desk, which I opened to reveal these:
Shoes were always my big thing before I moved to New York. I was obsessed with them. Heels, platforms, stilettos, boots. I loved them all and wanted them all. Then I moved to New York and had to walk everywhere and was basically like FTN fuck that noise.
Today brought a nice reminder that I still, in fact, fucking love shoes. These are perfect. They are sparkly, they are black and they are flat. I can wear them in the city without wanting to kill someone, so that is good. And they were FREE. Thanks, universe.
It couldn't have come on a better day, because I found out today that I have a fucking EAR INFECTION. All caps attack necessary. Am I five years old??? On top of that, I'm on my period, so yay TMI Friday this morning I basically felt like a snotified zombie lady with intent to kill.
But my new sparkly shoes made me feel better. Happy Friday everyone!
PS, I interviewed the guys who made the Facebook film CATFISH that everyone is talking about. My story is here. I encourage everyone to see it - it's shocking and thought-provoking, especially for those of us who belong to the Internet Generation. Ahem, that means you.
