i'm being a lazy blogger but also trying to kick-start my other blogs - big tips and food musings.
i've posted the following on big tips but thought i'd get more suggestions here.
ok, so i know it was a mistake to buy white havvies. i know that now. but the fact is that the black ones i bought at the same time i bought the white ones, are long dead. and the brown ones i bought after the black ones died, broke yesterday. yes we were walking up fitzroy street from checking out the festival of st. kilda when the bit that goes between the toe snapped just outside that coolsie bar on the corner of fitz and canterbury rds. no, not the prince, and not the terminus and not the chemist [that's not a bar you fool] but the other one. while gigi was trying to get in the door past the rather slim bouncers, i kind of twisted my foot and snappo. so my brown thongs are now in the bin outside that bar.
so i had to walk barefoot home.
do you realise how dangerous this is in st kilda?
do you realised that within a 200 metre radius of the pig and whistle/elephant and wheelbarrow place there are a billion shards of broken glass?
anyway we got home without me slashing my feet.
and then i went and got my grotty, dirty, grubby, blackened "white" thongs out of the cupboard.
they are horrible.
but until i get my next pair [i'm going brown again. it's my fave colour] i would like to try and clean these ones.
yes, i've tried an old toothbrush with some sort of ajaxy powder.
