Loving these shoes. I need to have them NOW.

They're Back

Yes it's that time of the year again. Cambridge, Somerville, and Boston all over has been infested with students. Yesterday must have been move in day at Harvard and Tufts because it took me forever to get home. And there seriously has to be a lot of freshman or something because no one knew what the hell they were doing, or where they were going.

Driving home people were stopping in the middle of the freaking road. for no good reason. They weren't turning. I don't know what the fuck they were doing besides getting in my way! Who stops in the middle of the road? No blinker. No pulling aside. Just stopping! ARGH Pull to the side!

Yesterday it took me a full hour to drive from Newton to Somerville via back roads that normally take me 20 minutes! I have not seen such poor driving in a looooooong time.

UM WHY Prada would you not have an online store for the US, but you have one for for all of Europe. Not Fair!!!!!!!

And if Saks or Neimans were actually carrying your new shoe from Vogue's August edition I would buy it there, but they don't have it!

I'm annoyed. I NEED this shoe!


ohh there's going to be a new boutique opening in Chestnut Hill called Cusp. It looks like it may be pretty good. This is their blog too.

The card they sent me shows items from: See by Chloe, LAMB, Nanette Lepore, and Cynthia Vincent. Grand Opening is Thursday, August 28th.

I sense a shopping trip coming on... good thing the credit cards are all paid off for this month! WOO HOO ;)

Who actually REPLIES to these stupid emails?? I guess someone must or they wouldn't keep sending them out. I don't know how a person could fall for this!? and if you worked for a 'reputable bank in South Africa' wouldn't you just name the bank???? I mean come on - make it sound KIND OF REAL WTF!? Oh and he has a gmail account - cuz that is so legit for a banker!

So hilarious:

I am Dr. Fredrick Mbeki, the account officer of a reputable bank in South Africa. There is an account open in this bank in 2002 and since 2004 and nobody has operated on this account again. After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited for nothing.

The owner of this account is Mr. Daniel Benson, a foreigner, Business Man and a miner at Kruger Gold Company, a Geologist by profession and he died since 2003.No other person knows this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the money involved is One hundred and Thirty Six Million United States Dollars (US$ 136 Million).

I want us to first transfer US$ 36 Million from this money into your safe overseas account before the rest. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a local bank here, but can only be approved to any foreign account because the money is in United States Dollars and the former owner Mr. Daniel Benson is a foreigner too. I know that this message will come to you as surprise as we don't know ourselves before. We will sign an agreement, but be sure that it is real and a genuine business. You can view the web site bellow for more information on our late client.

I only got your contact information from my secretary who operates computer; with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business, considering my position as a public servant. You are the only person that I have contacted in this business; so please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take immediately.

Send also your private telephone and fax numbers including the full details of your account to be used for the deposit. I want us to meet face-to-face and sign a binding agreement to bind us together so that you can receive this money into your account where the fund will be safe. And I will fly to your country for withdrawal and sharing and other investment.

Meanwhile, I am contacting you because of the need to involve a foreigner with foreign account and foreign beneficiary. I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you as soon as you indicate your sincerity to co-operate with me, and capability to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instruction and advice for our mutual benefit because this opportunity may never come again in my life. I need a truthful and God fearing person in this business because I don't want to make a mistake so I need your strong assurance and trust.

With my position in the office I don't want anything that will jeopardize my job so I advice that we should make secrecy and confidentiality our primary working condition, bearing in mind that I am a public servant. I will also use my position and influence to effect legal approvals and onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance forms of the ministries and foreign exchange department.

At the conclusion of this business, you will be giving 25% of the total amount, 70% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred the process of the transfer. I look forward to your earliest reply through my alternative email address:

Yours sincerely,

Dr.Fredrick Mbeki

Why is it that people just cannot navigate a rotary??

Today I got to witness a genius go through the rotary in the wrong direction to apparently make a turn into a parking lot quicker?

What jackass does this and stops up the rotary for minutes while everyone tries to figure out what this idiot is trying to do?

I'm not a fan. I think I'm in the minority though.

It seems everyone has a pair of these boots. I guess they are probably warm and comfortable, but I just can't do it.

And now they are making them in silver. It looks like a moon boot.


How do you Ruin...

A perfectly cute stilleto? You add a rugged giant ugly sole to it.

What is up with the sole on this Yves Saint Laurent shoe? Prior to that manly work boot sole - these would have been super cute shoes for a dressy occasion. Now they just look horsey. Plus they are all around $800 (give or take a little). I'm sorry but I'm not paying $800 for a big rubber soled shoe. I don't think I'd pay $50. I just don't like the sole. Waste of a cute shoe.

Fall Shoes

One of my favorite thing about fall is new shoes! I love looking at all the new styles and while I love my summer sandals - there's something fantastic about a pair of leather boots, or classic black heels.

I am loving these new Christian Louboutin Black Leather Armadillo Peep-Toe Platforms. The striped pattern is very funky, yet classic.

If I don't shop for any else all month maybe I can afford them...

What's Society to do?

So I moved in with my boyfriend who lives right in Davis Sq. slightly closer to Powderhouse circle (I used to be near Porter). I've lived in Somerville for close to 4 years.

So now for the dilemma. There is a man who I believe is named Mike who is clearly mentally disabled. Some days he sits quietly on a bench and chain smokes, but more often than not he follows people down the street yelling, screaming, spitting, swearing at them and violating their personal space while doing it. Most of the time he repeats the same speech - why did they do this or that - not really sure what he's saying and I really try to avoid him at all costs.

Now I really wouldn't care if this man sat on a bench all day and yelled and smoked. But he doesn't he walks down the streets scaring people (at least it scares me) - he talks way too closely for my comfort and spits on you as he's yelling (not on purpose). But it's gross - who wants to get spit on?

Now he's coming further down my street towards Davis (he used to stay right @Powerhouse circle). Now most mornings I wake up to him screaming outside my window. It's annoying when my windows are open in the summer and all I hear for about 2 hours straight are the same ramblings from this guy. I would like to wake up to a little peace and quiet - my street is busy enough with all the cars.

And now last week he started a new thing - screaming 'get the fuck out of here' over and over. Great... now he's yelling AND angry AND swearing! AND on MY fucking front lawn! I don't want to be harassed and scared when I'm trying to come and go from my home! I don't want to feel like a hostage in my own home because I'm afraid to leave because he's standing in front of my car. I don't want someone screaming get the fuck out of here at me while I am trying to get into my car to go to work! This morning he was hovering on the sidewalk in front of my house - blocking the way to my car so I stayed in my house until he moved across the street to yell at another innocent victim.

I mean what is one to do about this? On one hand the man is clearly mentally disabled. He clearly can't help it - I feel bad for him. But then why is it ok for him (or anyone) to scream at me in front of my home? BF says to me well he's harmless he's never hurt anyone, just ignore him. It seems he hasn't, but still that makes it ok for him to verbally assault me in front of my home because he's got an illness? Where are my rights? How can I ignore someone yelling at me, close to my face, spitting on me, walking next to me? How does society handle something like this? What is the right thing to do here?

Overheard @ Burlington Mall

From what looked like a very able 6 year old boy (or he looked about that age) to his mother on her cell phone:

'Mom tie my shoe'.

Um tie it yourself! He looked old enough to know how to perform this task. Is this how lazy American kids are getting they can't even tie their own shoes? UGH

F-U state of CT

After a weekend of debauchery in the NJ Shore - we were making such great time coming home - when on 84 at 7pm on a Sunday night in the summer - The state of CT shuts the whole thing down to one freaking lane to do road work.

Are you kidding me???

It's 7pm! On a Sunday in the summer - you have to KNOW tons of people will be driving back from their vacation destinations! Like maybe shutting the road down at 10pm would be a smarter decision?????

So instead of getting home while it was still light out - we sat in an hour and a half traffic while the highway went down to one lane. An hour and half to drive one freaking mile!!!!!!!!!!!!! I guess the one good thing is that we were there right after they shut down the road so didn't have to wait as long as the miles of folks behind us waiting.
