can i pull these off?

I just bought these shoes, but I've never bought any like this before. Can I pull it off? Not sure yet. I usually say people can pull off anything with confidence, but who knows...


my life is average

A website I love is MyLifeisAverage.com. It has tons of meaningless stories from average people that are just funny to me. These were some of my favorite ones from today's posts:

-Today my boyfriend surprised me with sparkling grape juice in plastic champagne glasses and Peter Pan on VHS. We are both 19 years old. I feel like this was an acceptable way to spend the afternoon. MLIA.

-Today, I saw a lady eating licorice next to me at a red light. I realized that I really wanted some, so I screamed out the window "look at me" and asked for some and she threw a whole pack of twizzlers into my car. Thank you mystery licorice lady. MLIA

-Today I gave five dollars and all the spare change in my pocket to a homeless man who's sign read "Brother kidnapped by squirrels, need money for nuts and booby traps." MLIA

-Today, i lost my remote. the first thing i did was grab my phone and try to call it, then i realized i can't call my remote. i still haven't found it. MLIA

So everyone on Facebook is doing this celebrity look alike thing right now. I don't really think I look like anyone, but people have mentioned Mischa Barton and Alexis Bledel. About 3 times for Alexis and 6 times for Mischa. I guess it's the tallness with brown hair?? I just don't see it. According to Lauren Steele, Alexis is really awkward in person. And I did talk to Mischa's agent on the phone recently (not kidding) and he said she was doing really well, despite her visit to a mental institution. Good for Mischa. Anyway, here are both women, so take your pick.

I think it makes sense that people are curious about what celebrity they look like. We live in a world that idolizes the rich and famous. We have a desire to be "defined" and also a subconscious tendency to compare ourselves to others. It just makes sense to me.
