My Most Functional High Heeled Shoe

It happens to be a tape dispenser.  
My mom found this while buying office supplies for work, and of course the first person she thought of was her daughter.  

I'm sitting at my desk staring at this shoe.  It's far more functional than any of the ones I already own.  Sure, I wish my other shoes could suddenly dispense tape, have a secret hidden compartment for money, or carry a switchblade for protection (yes, that is what I think about).

Really, though, what I'm doing by staring at this little dispenser is avoiding doing things that should be getting done.  Do you ever feel like that?  Like maybe you can contemplate one million questions in order to avoid doing something more substantial?  

It doesn't work forever.  After all, even if I start to wonder if I could make my shoes do other cool things, I would still have to do something in order to make it happen, thus ending my little traipse into procrastination.

Today I've done a lot of work, but once I hit that 3:30pm, my brain shut down.  Suddenly, Pinterest, Facebook, and blog reading sounded like a far better use of my time.  Speak of Blog Reading, you should head on over to Stephanie Karfelt's Blog at the Glitter Globe.  The woman is giving away Slinky Dogs.  Trust me, you want one.

Today Stephanie talked about what her heaven looks like.  If you got to create heaven, how would yours differ than mine?  Stephanie's sounds like a cool place to visit, but there wasn't much mention of Dr. Pepper, so I don't think it would be a place I would stay.  If you want to chime in on what YOUR heaven looks like, head over to the Glitter Globe.

As for here, maybe you have a functional pair of shoes that does wacky things.  If so, tell me about them - and then tell me where to get them.  My shoes are amazing (I love shoes), but I don't think they do more than go on my feet and make my outfit that much better.

Want to meet my favorites?
I knew you did.
These babies are my pride and joy.  I love them.  They serve me well and will be a part of my American Dream Halloween costume this year (we're doing a Marvel Comics theme).
I love Halloween...
Okay, now I'm so off topic I have to be done.  Talk about a rambling blog.

So tell me about your shoes.  Or maybe about your Halloween Costume?
Tell me whatever you want.  Today is a throw away day here at Life Unpublished.

Love the boots! Today is a Blahhh day! Just lying here, wishing I felt like putting on my walking shoes...ugh!

I totally hear you. Been in the "Blahzay" mood. I think Monday being a holiday actually made me LESS likely to be functional!

Thanks for the shout out, Kelsey, about The Glitter Globe, and the Epic Slinky Dog giveaway. Which is rather epic. They've been moving fast for weiner dogs. I just ordered another herd of them and will keep handing them out as long as I can. What the world needs now is more Slinky Dogs, imho.
Had to chime in on shoes. Have a penchant for those types of stiletto heels that are impossible to walk in. Mine have superpowers, they make me type faster. Get more words in those novels. They're magic writing shoes. Not to dis your tape dispenser, because that is pretty dang awesome too.
My favorite costume ever was probably Daphne from Scooby Do. Though I rocked a pirate costume once too - and someday I hope to find three like-minded friends and pose as KISS. I might need to borrow your boots, Kelsey.

Those boots remind me of when I was about 16 and was Gene Simmons for Halloween. I made my own platform boots by nailing some sneakers to two very oak blocks, then used foam for the boot part. The things weighed about 20 pounds each. A friends sister did our Kiss make-up and we were the hit of the night, even if I could barely walk.

I own a few pair of flip-flops. One is even fancy enough to wear to church. They enable me to go places I couldn't go without shoes, yet without the hassle of having to find and slip on socks, or tie/fasten anything onto my feet. :D

Stephanie, I do love your "Writing Heels". I should get some of those and see if they help me in the same way...

Love the Kiss Outfit. A family friend of mine is an UBER KISS fan and he would no doubt applaud your ingenuity on making the platforms!

Linnette -

There's nothing like a fancy pair of flip flops! Gotta love those things. They are my "Summer Shoes". I seriously have very little time for anything else come those hot months. I like my feet to be free.
But then, I'm more of an autumn/winter girl, so I'm looking forward to the next season of shoe wear!
