Stand Back - I'm going to try science [20080918|11:45]

I opened my present from Adam today, and I figured it was a good opportunity to combine a bit of camhoorin with fulfilling that photo meme currently making the rounds. This picture has been rotated and resized, but not touched up. I took it right before I left for work.

I now own two copies of this shirt. The first was gifted to me by my doppelganger becala. You know you’re an incorrigible geek when your friends see an XKCD t-shirt and immediately think, “Aha, the perfect present!” My day is also fabulous because I received books from My Mate Josh, a beautiful pair of ridiculously impractical shoes and an invitation to invent labs and demonstrate for an instrumentation course being taught this year at Imperial. I’m a lucky scientess.

Those shoes are absurd and fabulous and I really want to see photos of them in use.

Mostly I want to see what kind of outfit you wear with those shoes.

I was thinking about wearing them tomorrow, but then I remembered that (a) I'm celebrating my birthday at work tomorrow because I'm off all next week and (b) it's International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Which means I can dress as a goth pirate for work and no one can do anything about it.

Also, I'm afraid to spoil the soles of the shoes. Did you look at them? Those would so be ruined within five seconds of meeting London pavements.

Wonderful. And I love the impractical shoes. Most of the Irregular Choice shoes in the US are very meh in comparison.

I know, I know you chose the much better country for goth shoes. I mean just look at our choices here in the US and Amazon isn't much better.

I bow to your foresight!

I would say something bland and compensatory, but I can't, because the UK shoes are so much better. Sorry!
