So, I did something that I never thought I would do. I bought some flip-flops. For a bit of backstory, I've had the same sandals for 11 years. Yes, that may sound like along time, but they're served me well. But they were not flip-flops. I've never cared much for flip flops. The presence of something between my toes never quite sat well with me. the same with the constant suction to my foot. I have been a staunch hardliner against such things, but yesterday I was convinced to buy some and wear them. I can't say that I have totally, rescinded my earlier opinions, but I can at least say that they are not as uncomfortable as I previously thought.

So...It's been a while since my last post. And somehow that feels like a confession at an AA meeting. At least, that's what I assume AA meetings are like from years of tv viewing. Anyway, I thought I'd comment on the fact that I have no roommates anymore. It's odd. One of my roommates got married, one moved to Oregon, and one is doing an internship in Texas. This is the first time I've lived alone. Which is not to say that I'm actually alone, I have neighbors who like to pop in, a girlfriend who's over quite often, and the recently married roommate likes to spend his afternoons here playing Xbox. ( It's his xbox, which might explain that better.) With all sorts of people around, there's very little opportunity to feel lonely, or to walk around the apartment with no pants on. Sigh.
