the third sign the devil is winning :



hello children.

welcome to the third sign the devil is winning,
(creeping up quickly on numers 1 and 2:
birkenstocks and tie-dye.)

the actual CROC STORE in hong kong.

(right now, gretchen is having trouble breathing . . . )

this summer, i worked maintenance at a hotel. this included setting up banquet rooms. for several days, an annual 'shoe show' was there. [suppliers show left shoes to store owners and buyers]. most people had two tables, but crocs had an entire room to themselves.

yes, crocs is the devil. HOWEVER, the guy running the crocs room gave me a free pair [which were great for wearing to the laundry room and back. that's pretty much it.] and he slipped me some extra cash to ensure that i looked after his room, had his shit constantly organized, fully stocked snack table, etc. so yes, crocs are the devil, but sometimes i don't mind working for the devil... you know there's always a reward HAHA

oh... i also had to pack up all his stuff at the end of the show? do you know easy it is to just cram a million pairs into a huge box and then be able to carry it on the palm of your hand? its sweet HAHA

Oy.

MY EYES! MY EYES! Actually I think crocs look very cute on little children. Just little children - no one, I repeat, no one else.

I'm having a hard time justifying my intense hatred of Crocs when I wear Birkenstock kitchen clogs at work.
But I hate those uglies too, so there you go.
Self-justification is just so dang easy sometimes...

I'm just going to pretend it's one of those bizarre "art" installations.

Is no one paying attention to all the news stories about how these are dangerous? And when I say "dangerous", I mean "ugly".
