I'm in a perpetual phase of transition which doesn't seem to be phasing out.

For my Ex-Floridian Friends

Caleb, my friend Danielle and I all went to the mall recently. I'm not usually much of a mall person but I really needed some cotton skirts.... I only own one pair of shorts and then a bunch of pants and I can't handle another scortching hot summer in black skinny jeans.  I figure flowy cotton skirts are the way to go.  Found some for $15, but Danielle insisted I go to the thrift store instead to find a better deal (she's the most glorious finder of great gently used, vintagey get-up ever)...which I have yet to do, so alas! it's either skinny jeans or some shorts that come up to my belly botton and are terribly uncomfortable and hideous.  I did buy some teva sandals on this mall venture, even though they're the goofiest things ever. Danielle is from Orlando and she thinks tevas are the worst. Apparently European tourists love to go to Disney World and whatnot with black socks and tevas. Sounds like a German thing maybe.  I can't remember what countries she specified as notorious for this fashion faux pas. Well I took this picture with my fancy new digital camera that my dad got me for my birthday! hooray! I took the black mis-matched socks off shortly after this snapshot for fear of some sort of podiastroke.

Well I made use of my awesome tevas on a walk today with Nicki Feathers (her last name isn't really feathers, I don't even know what it is, but she wears feather earrings alot so I put her last name in my phone as Feathers, sounds like a classy pornstar, yeah-yuh!) I bought the tevas so that I could walk around in the heat with comfy breathable shows and not stink up tennis shoes all the time with my sweaty feet.  We took her Alaskan Malamute, Ivan, along with us.  He's awesome.  I ran into a couple of different friends on our walk and they both made a joke calling the dog "Ivan the Terrible"  Nicki says the poor dog gets that a lot.  He also gets a lot of compliments because he's beautiful and really well behaved.  A woman even stopped her car and rolled down her window to tell us what a beautiful dog he is.  Nicki says it's a great way to get a date and that normally she's not extroverted but ever since she's gotten this dog, so many people have approached her that she's ended up making conversation with zillions of strangers.  I'm not a dog person, shucks! I bet if I got a pet cat that liked to be on leash then we'd get some attention.

On our walk some random guy handed me a dying rose who we passed by on the sidewalk. It was a nice gester even thoigh the flower made me feel overcome with melancholy for 2 and half seconds or so.  I took this picture and then left the rose on the sidewalk.  Maybe someone more romantic will see it and find some sort of tragic beauty in it and be inspired for a bad poem or something.
