Big Ball of Snot

I am a big ball of snot. Our entire "Hey, the kid's with the grandparents, let's party!" week was taken up with a stomach virus that segued beautifully into a sinus infection. At least the decongestant has some good side effects--I'm very alert and disinclined to eat.

And the comments are back, so that's a happy thing. One day I will convert to WordPress--I've downloaded the zip file and read the 5 minute install instructions and everything--but today will not be that day. So I soldier bravely on with MoveableType.

All of this to say that until the snot trauma subsides, posting will most likely be sporadic and probably a little difficult to read when it does occur: the decongestant keeps me awake, alert and hyper, but the synapses it stimulates tend to fire randomly, making logic difficult.

In the meantime, for your viewing pleasure, the scariest footwear I have ever seen. Ever. And that includes those platform shoes with the goldfish swimming around in them that Huggy Bear wore in I'm Gonna Get You, Sucka.

Now I'm going to be looking ALL DAY for the chance to use the word "spatastic" in a sentence....

See if the stuff fixes urinary incontinence in dogs. There's a need for that since they banned phenylpropanolamine, the previous decongestent and appetite suppressant used for the purpose.

Not very functional with all that foot-skin showing, either; IIRC, spats were to keep the, er, organic exhaust of the gilded age from slopping over the sides of your shoes.

But what do I know? As far as I'm can tell, Dorthy's red shoes were butt-ugly, too.
