Unexpected victory! [Nov. 3rd, 2007|02:19 pm]
Beemer
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.

I miss K-mart. I used to get all my throw-away runners there. They closed down in Canada many years ago.

7.5EEE here, or 8EEE depending on the manufacturer. (Yup, triangles.) The concept of buying shoes without trying them on has always boggled my mind: mail-order or over the internet. T-shirts, underwear, socks and ties I can see.
