Shoes: The Agony and the Ecstasy

Long time no see, shoe lovers! I was wrapped up in the World's Most Painful Move Of The Century (WMPMOTC), which is far from being over, since we still have no kitchen or den (as in, no sink or stove or cabinets, or no floors and walls), but hey, at least I've got a very good place for my own shoes! Pictures to come later.

This Sunday in an attempt to get away from it all, I took a day trip to NY and saw the new MOMA (very impressive, but don't go if you have vertigo or some sort of fear of heights). However, if I'd had my druthers (and because I had already seen the MOMA exhibits a couple of times before), I would have crossed the ocean to see this little gem of an exhibit: Shoes: The Agony and the Ecstasy. Go visit the site, it's well worth it: there's a wealth of info about the construction of the shoe, a sort of glossary of terms, if you will (incomplete as it is), and a bunch of pictures of the beautiful shoes they have on display. Among my favorites:
They're from the early 1920's and just gorgeous, don't you think?

Wow, it's good to be back online. Will try to resume my regular updates soon!

Once there were two mice. They were friends. One mouse lived in the country Diablo III Gold; the other mouse lived in the city. After many years the Country mouse saw the City mouse; he said, "Do come and see me at my house in the country." So the City mouse went. The City mouse said, "This food is not good, and your house is not good Diablo 3 Gold. Why do you live in a hole in the field? You should come and live in the city. You would live in a nice house made of stone. You would have nice food to eat Diablo III Gold. You must come and see me at my house in the city." The Country mouse went to the house of the City mouse. It was a very good house. Nice food was set ready for them to eat. But just as they began to eat they heard a great noise. The City mouse cried, " Run! Run! The cat is coming!" They ran away quickly and hid.
