Today I danced for approximately 6 hours while standing behind a table, smiling and handing out flyers.

I don't know how some feminists do this in heels.

(Lacing up the boots for another 6 hours of behind-the-stall dancing tomorrow, this time for jocks who will probably stare at my chest before signing up for rugby. If only we could get some of the female rugby players... (; )

Go Women's Campaign!

Ker-plunk for more sleep now even after a 3-hour nap with Eve. Sweet dreams!

Don't tell anyone, but this is the point about high heels
I don't know how some feminists do this in heels. There are parties when I manage 6 hours in heels, dancing most of them. And you want to know why we do it? Really? You're absolutely sure you want to know? I don't think LJ-cuts will work in comments, but I'll try anyhow.



Well, it's agony, of course. It's exquisitely painful. It increases slowly, but towards the end of the evening, the entire fore-foot (if that's the word. The bit that's actually on the ground in high heels) hurts whenever you put your feet down. Anderson's Little Mermaid is nothing to it.

And you know that you can't take those shoes of for
a) it spoils the sophisticated, dressy effect you were aiming for
b) you will never, ever get them back on again and you still have to get home
c) you'd might have people fainting in a 20-metre radius. Feet can get very hot.

BUT.

Then you're finally home. The true perv (me) doesn't take them off the minute you cross the threshold, but goes all the way up to the bedroom.

You sit on the bed.

oh, yes, please, now

You slowly peel off the shoes.

Yes!

You wiggle your toes.

Ooohhh.

You rub your soles.

You wiggle some more.

You bury the feet in the soft shagpile in the bedroom.

Oohhh. Ooohh, yes!

If I ever get over there, I'll give you a footrub, as long as Lord Snowdon doesn't mind.

Shoe SM, another rabid bunny...

Shoe SM, another rabid bunny... Not one I'm going to turn into a story. But feel free!
I'll pick you up at the airport in the most elegant of high heels ...

Re: Don't tell anyone, but this is the point about high heels
Goodness, my admiration for you is endless! 6 hours in heels dancing!

I purchased my first pair of heels the other day (they're little boot-like things). They're rather tall: when I put them on I'm average height. I was wearing them around the living room. I put them on occasionally to practice.

I understand the agony! Hahaha, I very much understand those three points as well! It's surprisingly similar with those who wear boots.

Mmmmm. Now I understand somewhat more. It did feel excellent to take them off once I had taken the two flights of stairs to my room a few times.

I am learning. (:

I'll keep a good thought for that, and I'm glad Fluffy is at least tolerating the dancing.

You should dance.
