Day 901, Clogs: I’d meant to buy some new dress shoes this week/month/year but haven’t gotten around to it. So late Thursday night, I decided to wear a pair I’ve underworn in the year+ that I’ve owned them. I looked, of course, to Ian’s Shoelace Site.
Day 856, Clogs: New, seen halfway to work.
Day 793, Clogs: Sam & I made our way from Brussels to Paris, without much trouble, except when the police stopped us. We’d just gotten off the train, and they asked for our papers. This is of course “random” selection, which is why I’ve been stopped literally half the times I’ve gone to Paris this year. They checked our passports, inquired about our travel plans and possessions, and then asked us, “Obama or Romney?” You can’t make this up, folks.
Day 789, Clogs: I’ve been meaning to clean up the “piles" of paper on my desk & office table for some time now. Today was a deadline for it, as I’m basically out of the office the next two weeks. I did a lot of filing and some recycling. Okay, fine, and some repiling. In related news, I’m not likely to get a chance to update this until mid-November, as I travel for various reasons. While I’m gone, be well. Be kind to your fellow man. Learn lots. Vote, if you’re an American citizen.
Day 574, Clogs: I love the street art in Paris. Even the “models” are well-dressed!
Day 538, Clogs: I met up with a childhood friend, Jen, who really wanted us to get a drink at the Ritz. We were turned away from the full Hemingway Bar, so we went to the Ritz Bar. We found it to be a perfectly adequate substitute.
Day 532, Clogs: Antwerp Centraal Station is AMAZING. You’ve never seen a train station with so many people just taking pictures of the building. Plus, you can get waffles there. And Starbucks. And store your bags for a few hours as you walk around the city one last time. I’ll see you again, Antwerp. And next time, I’ll buy ALL THE CLOTHES.
Day 189, Clogs: We had some chocolate-covered kruidnoten left in our cupboard from December. I ate a few as an afternoon snack. I left this conglomeration as is.
Day 172, Clogs: We now have a TV! Unfortunately, due to its age & Euro-ness, it only shows black-and-white images when we hook it up to our computers. (It’s an S-Video out to a SCART in, which also includes some delightful NTSC/PAL issues.) We’ve decided we’ll only watch movies on it that were originally in black and white. Suggestions welcome.
