a pair of Christian Loubuitin's, perhaps? yes, as soon as i got the cash

i created a grooveshark playlist for finnish music. its pop/rock... which is not what finns are good at. but im not into metal so someone else can work on that.

i need to be more open about shoe shopping. i have to come out of the closet and say im a shoe collector. i am tired of the "you have a lot of shoes!" comments. i am ALLOWED to have - i COLLECT them. ive decided that its an acceptable hobby and can be useful too...

my teacher-look tonight;

some clothes i got last week when we were actually shopping for the doctor;

a pure red knit sleeveless dress

purple skirt

the doctor is moving here in 2 days. im nervous and excited. he wants to try fit his couch in the bedroom. my sense of space and size say its not a good idea but i decided to be flexible and give it a try, we can always change it i guess. perhaps it works. and if it makes him happy, ok.

a very finnish phone conversation (translated) with my uncle -father's brother- whom i havent seen or spoken to in perhaps 5 or so years.
uncle: XXX speaking
