I really found it interesting to hear everyone's take on the shoe snob debate. Although my Asics weren't my favorite shoes LOOKS wise, I tried to ignore it for their cheap price tag. But after two runs, they just weren't working. My toes were actually going numb...no thanks.
I broke down and headed up to Chattanooga, TN today to buy a pair of the same Brooks I had before. I spoke to an associate there, he had a look at my old shoes, and I left with a new colored pair of the GTS 11s. All is well in the world again!
As if new shoes weren't enough, I also took a walk in the sun, grabbed lunch at Whole Foods and did a little grocery shopping, bought the Office version of Clue at a little antique shop, stopped for frozen yogurt and picked a bunch of new beers to try out tomorrow night. THAT is what I call a successful day. Way more fun than this work nonsense.

What is your take on frozen desserts in cold weather?
I was so torn today. Tim actually asked me three different times, "do you want to get frozen yogurt?" I don't think he believed me each time he said no. As we were driving past the LAST frozen yogurt place on the way home, I decided I needed some, despite the cold weather. Normally though, once winter hits I get ready for baked goods instead!
What is everyone up to for Halloween?
We carved our pumpkin, roasted the seeds and we're having a big roast dinner with our neighbors tomorrow night. But no costumes this year, and I doubt any children will be making the trek down to our house for trick or treating!
