Life in the closing days of the empire
Thank you for the morning laugh!
Well spotted! isn't fashion silly some/most of the times? I live only about 15 miles south of Bedlington, Northumberland, home of the Bedlington Terrier.Had to look up PETA, mind. I don't disagree entirely with them in principle. My Dad was a professional photographer. He told me he once had a job working in a hospital research lab photographing the animals -- mainly dogs at the time -- they used for surgical experimentation. He said he couldn't hack it for more than a few days; he had to quit. That said, all the animal rights people I've come across up here in Newcastle are really scary types and gain no empathy from me.Sorry to be so serious -- it's my curse to be that way. Cute post.
Steve Martin has a very funny short story (same title) in his collection, "Cruel Shoes." I immediately thought of it when I saw your photo. Yikes! http://www.amazon.com/Cruel-Shoes-Steve-Martin/dp/B001Q5I9G0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1265294977&sr=1-2
Having followed Alexander McQueen's designs over the years, I've come to the conclusion that he doesn't like women. Who the heck would wear that???
I love a Bedlington! The McQueen shoes, not so much. Hallie
My condolences to the McQueen family and organization.
PETA - people eating tasty animalsbut seriously folks, what an incredible loss. comfort aside, those shoes are the mark of someone thinking not just outside the box but outside the planet. without folks like mcqueen, we'd still be swinging from the trees and picking lice off each other. my condolences also.
