a list.

shoes

i start shaking now--when something upsets me.
visibly.
it would be embarrassing but that it only happens in private.

my favorite pair of shoes cost a mere twenty-two dollars.
twenty-two dollars, i say!

the stress of (not) moving is giving way to thoughts of potted plants, easter brunches, and open windows.

i like to sleep with my feet hanging off the bed.
or diagonally.
depending on my mood.

there's nothing i like quite so much as climbing under the covers immediately following a bath.

speaking of lists, a friend recently listed all of my failed romantic ventures.
all together, on paper, they seem a bit laughable.
but they are mine and i claim them as such.

(and yes, my legs are so white they actually glow.
and i am not--i repeat--not ashamed).

My husband and I used to say (when we moved to Australia) that we were actually blue, then we glow white then a little red and maybe even some tan....nah not really, the tan doesn't happen for a LONG time....

I also like to sleep with my feet hanging off the bed. I thought I was the only one!

P.s. cute shoes!

Don't you know monsters will chew your toes if you leave them hanging off the bed?

I understand about being that white. All of my friends go tanning except me. I'm really pale, but I like the color of my skin so why would I want to ruin it?

I like the part about climbing under the covers right after a bath! Such a great feeling.

I love these shoes! No worries, my legs are as white as yours, if not whiter. Except in Louisiana, it's almost like summer; yet I do not tan. At all. I blind people with my whiteness year round!

Autumn said...

my legs glow too

Erin said...

i like to sleep diagnolly too. or with my feet hanging off the bed. (good to know i'm not the only one.) and my legs glow too. some days it bothers me. some days it doesn't. i'm trying to learn to love my pale skin.

You're not alone when it comes to glowing white skin! Just remember people like Alexis Bledel and Nicole Kidman who've made millions from their creamy complexion :)

Becky said...

Those shoes are wonderful---and I have oh-so-very similar milky white legs! Nice list!
