Forgive me readers, for I have sinned. It has been over a week since my last blog post. Sorry and stuff.

I have been writing my butt off, just not here! I kind of decided to skip getting a regular job for now in favor of doing freelance writing work online. So far so good, but I find it kind of addicting. It's fun to get paid for the amount of work I do instead of the number of hours for a change. It makes me tireless! Gimmie moneys! And boy do I need some money. SO many bills to catch up on! I have been sending Ashlee money to mail the stuff I had to leave at her place when nothing else would fit in my car... she's sent $85 worth of stuff so far, and says she has like $140 more. YIKES. Maybe I really SHOULD have just duct taped the cats to the top of the car to save space?

I have allowed myself a little bit of indulgant shopping, too. It has been so long since I've been able to afford anything other than rent and (sometimes) food, so I've been a little bad about buying a couple of things I don't really NEED, with money that should be going to paying bills, but a girl has to have a little fun, right? Plus, myself I can get something from my Amazon wishlist soon is WAY more motivating for work than telling myself I can pay my old electric company what I still owe them.

Which brings us to:

Mah Shoez: Beholdz thems!

I became kind of obsessed with these Converse that The Edge wears in my current favorite documentary, It Might Get Loud. A little research turned up that he designed them for Converse as part of the 1Hund(Red) campaign, where 100 celebrities designed shoes to raise $ for AIDS in Africa. The design is made up of the points (or edges...hehe) of the Converse star. I kind of love them, hardcore.

They only sold them for a limited time, and there's pretty much nowhere to buy them now. On a whim, I checked eBay. There was ONE pair. They were in my size. They're on their way to my house, wheeee! I've been planning to buy a snazzy new pair of Converse for AGES, and these cost me about what I'd spend on a regular pair, and have the added benefit of being designed by a sexy, sexy guitarist. I will pretty much spend the first week after I get them walking around giggling over the fact that I'm wearing Edge's shoes. Hi, I am 12 years old.

Enjoy this delightful video, which features a gratuitous shot of my shoes about 10 seconds in:

SHOES, yay! Now if only I could afford those Ann Demeulemeester Fall 2008 triple-lace boots...
