and while I was there I saw some boots I had to have because boots almost always make me have to have them as I am simply mad about boots:
I think with the shoes I'm treading an infinitesimal line between emo and hip-hop which is good because I'm just a forty-year-old man who listens to joy division. I can't, of course, wear rockports like every other forty-year-old man in the country because then it will look as though I've settled down and given up wild schemes of fame and fortune and although I do feel somewhat resigned to the fact that I will probably have neither it hasn't dulled my enthusiasm to still do weird things on the off chance someone notices.
yes I buy lots of shoes. but I suspect that in a few years I will be so desperately poor that I won't be able to afford shoes so hopefully the ones I buy now will last awhile.
