I'm getting too domestic...

Yesterday Julia and I went on an outing which included going out to lunch (at 3 PM) and shopping. Where did we go? At least three different stores, one of which is the mecca of shoes. I actually spotted a pair of Doc Martins! If I weren't so cheap I'd have bought them, but I wasn't about to spend $50 on them (conversion: $56.68 Canada, £28.48 UK).

Get this... I actually purchased a skirt. Yes, folks, that's right. I even plan on wearing it! Perhaps I am actually making progress on my femininess... femaleness... womanliness... girliness... whatever. You still can't part me from my combat boots, though. Could those be worn with a skirt? Ooh, maybe a camoflauge skirt! What do you think ladies?

Lol, thanks for specifying the amount in canadian! Very thoughtful of you.

Progress on your femininess? Carey, you are already delightful!

I used to love camouflage skirts and combat boots in highscool (even though I never owned a pair of combat boots). I think that had a lot to do with my choice of music.

It is however really not my style. Sorry girlie (i call all my friends like that)...

God bless,

The last part reminds me a 'Peanuts' comic strip. Snoopy is making fun of woodstock, and says his mother wears army boots.

So it is possible, I suppse.

Indeed it is, Robert.

You where Combat boots?
What kind?
We got the new GorTex ones.
While the water proofing is nice,
They weigh about 10 pounds each.
Making running good excercise.

A skirt and boots, huh?
Depends on the skirt.

Found your blog through comments on "Pen Of Iron".

Anyway, you can wear skirts & combat boots. I hope so, at least, cause I do it all the time. It works real good with camo, cargo, plaid, or "punky" looking skirts. Then again, I wore a pair of brown combat-stlyed boots with a denim dress today - good for here, because it can get cold and I do a lot of hiking & outdoorsy stuff in skirts.

Well done, Carey!

Women look so much nicer in skirts.

I used to wear combat boots when I was younger, long-haired and nose-pierced.

I do not mind ladies wearing combat boots if they are wearing skirts.

BTW, in the UK, £28.48 is a very good price for shoes. Most people would think nothing of spending £45.00 on a pair of shoes.

Are shoes that much cheaper in the USA?

God Bless

Oh yeah. I spend on average $15 (£8.55) for most of my shoes. Glad you approve of my skirt/boot wearing. I am still trying to picture you with long hair, Matthew. How long was it?

Jason, Gortex? Whoah. I wouldn't be able to walk in those. *laughs* But I have this funny image in my mind of me trying to walk with an extra 10 lb. on each foot. The pair I have now are actually hiking boots (some cheapo brand from Wal-Mart). They're so beat up and falling apart, but I can't get rid of them. They've served me well on three continents.

Raine, thanks for visiting and I'm glad someone else wears boots with her skirts!

Speaking of boots reminded me of this funny story about me, steel-toed boots, and a tea room with ten other girls. I'll save it for another post. Oh, but the tree story also goes along with that... and the mud! *laughs* I feel a post coming on.

Half-way down my back.

When I was at home from university, my parents insisted I wore it in a ponytail. It was like being at work, except at home.

Gah, Gortex. That stuff can get HOT. But it does repel water well.

Thats like girl length hair dude... Not cool at all.

At 04 March, 2006 14:23, Blogger Carey said...

My hair has never been that long. I usually keep it shoulder-length. Actually, I like long-ish hair on guys (like shoulder length)... and facial hair. I call it the "Aragorn look."

Jason, I wish the USAF didn't make you cut your hair so short. I liked it when it was a little longer back in highschool.

At 04 March, 2006 14:25, Blogger Carey said...

Robert, long hair on guys could be cool. I personally don't mind it.

At 04 March, 2006 14:30, Blogger Dyspraxic Fundamentalist said...

Well, I do not agree with long hair on guys any more.

I decided at the end of university, four years ago, that it was inappropriate to wear my hair long.

It is hard to know what the Biblical maximum length would be- maybe shoulder length rather than short-back and sides.

Nowadays I wear my hair slightly floppy on top and very short at the back and sides.

These days my mother complains that I cut my hair too short, when she used to complain that it was too long.

I think the Bible is clear on men having long hair:

Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him. ~1 Corinth 11:14

Long hair on men make me think of Rev. 9:8....sorry guys.
