Unexpected victory!

It's a beautiful day out, so before I settle down to spend the afternoon writing documentation, I decided I needed to get out of the house and go do something.

I decided to shop for shoes. I always have a hard time finding shoes that (1) fit (I think I'm size 10 triple- or maybe even quadruple-E, depending), (2) don't cost far more than I'm comfortable paying, and (3) look good, and over the last few years fashion has really hosed me on front #3. (There are lots of currently-popular styles that look okay on other people, but when I try them on I totally loathe them.)

I misremembered where the shoe stores are (hint: not 120th Ave.), so I was doubling back to go down a different street when I saw K-Mart, and thought what the hey.

Score! Not only did I find a pair of shoes that are comfortable and that I didn't hate for $12, I also found a great dress shirt, a pair of good-looking cargo pants, and a new belt! W00T! And all for cheap, because they're having a big sale that ends today.

It's all the more pleasing because I didn't actually expect to find anything, I just wanted to go outside.
