shoes. finally.  

After a ridiculous number of attempts, I have shoes that do not hurt my feet. That is good. I also got 2600 words written on the train commute. That is also good. And believe I have ended up, via these massive revisions, with a scenario that will permit me to write a third book in this series if my editor wants one. That’s good too.

The drunk asshole on the train who made fun of my hat and upset my tummy by doing so is less good. It’s a very cute hat, I know he was drunk and an asshole, but wow, it’s amazing how a random stranger’s nastiness can puncture a person.

Tomorrow morning I’m going to put my new shoes on my feet, get on my newly-fixed bicycle, bike over to the pool, and swim. So mote it be.

But right now I’m going to the war room. *shakes spear, runs off*

Post a picture of your hat and we will over ride his foolish comments.

The up side is that kindness from strangers means the world.

You're still rocking your cute hat and he's hunched over some trash can with a technicolor yawn. You win.

*chuckle* I am doing the great search for shoes today and tomorrow. Something about being on my feet for 10+ hours straight on a daily basis makes the ones I have currently not work.

But since its my day off I am fighting the urge to log into a game... any game... to get a break from the world =p

Mr Random-Drunk-on-a-Train is a smelly-head and I discard him.

This is why you must be prepared to transform into your superhero alter ego at a moment's notice, educate him in the error of his ways and leave him wondering who was that masked woman with the gorgeous hat, improbably long legs and shoes so new I can still taste them.

The Hat would be squished under The Helmet. :)

.. I thought of that after I posted, but maybe there is a larger version of The Hat that could go over the helmet. There is an amazing variety of bike helmets in Portland that show a lot of creativity.

Having already seen the hat I can wholeheartedly say that Mr Drunk is a prize wanker and fit only for barbequeing as the walking pork roast he is. It is hard to shake that though. I had a rather nice tweeed thing I wore exactly once at college to be met by a 'friend' who brayed at me in faux Sloane Ranger tones 'Oh Gawsh! Priscilla's come orf!' Have hardly worn a hat since. Don't let the bastards grind you down.
