Cool Shoes

The preperations for my brother's upcoming wedding is eating up a lot of my time, and so I'll blog about it. And you have to read it. So there.

The wedding is mostly under control. It always amazes me the amount of planning and prep that goes into even a relatively small wedding. Small is a relative term; she's related to the entire town of Danville and probably most of Caledonia county. The ceremony is Saturday and the clock is quickl running down. At this point if anything has been forgotten, it's going to have to remain forgotten (with the exception of my panyhose. I'll pick up a pair on my way out tomorrow).

The bride's maids (myself included) decided that we didn't want to buy shoesdyed to match the dresses that we could never wear again. I looked around online and I found a pair of uber cool clear lucite shoes with hollow heels. The bottom of the chunky heel unscrews and you can fill it with whatever. The idea to fill them with something unique or something to match the outfit, though I suppose in a pinch you could shove your carkeys in there if you didn't have any pockets. I'm a very big geek so I filled mine with tiny blue dice, to match my dress. Oooh, I feel girly and geeky all at the same time. For those of you keeping count, there are a total of 288 5mm dice in the shoes (144 in each shoe) that I bought in various places around ebay as the local game shop didn't really understand the concept of what I was trying to do. I didn't get more complicated than basic 6 siders. Maybe I can try to get the happy couple to role for initative before they walk down the aisle.
