Breakin' in the Docs

Observing casual Friday:

My Harry Potter leggings with the Deathly Hallows symbol and finally wearing my new Doc Martens. They're pretty stiff so I'm wearing thick socks underneath to try to start breaking them in. They're pretty comfy so far. They also felt very stable on the feet and ankles while going out to the car in the winter slush. It was still a little slippery near my car yet so I'm glad I was wearing these instead of sneakers.

In work news, dear LAWD my coworker Elaine needs to STFU. Her boss is out today and the student isn't working today so I get to hear her incessant rambling about the Union and their inability to negotiate a contract (I'm not a card carrying member because this particular Union that I'm in by default sucks SO much), how her stepkids want money instead of gifts (has to be the fifth time she's gone on about that) and other constant babbling. I declined the invite to go with her and other work friend to SmashBurger because I want to eat healthy and because I need a break from her. Oy vey.

BAD ASS!! I love them.

I'm glad you explained the leggings because I wouldn't have known *lol* I did think it was cool pattern straight away!

how her stepkids want money instead of gifts (has to be the fifth time she's gone on about that) and other constant babbling.

GAH! If they're teens? Get over it! All teens want the cash. If they're kiddos, then you guys fucked up somewhere and it's your own fault *lol*

And GREAT job turning down the lunch offer (is that a fast food joint or an actual restaurant?) you are killing it, girl <333

Thanks! I'm surprised that while they're stiff, they're pretty comfy. My feet don't feel overheated either. My pair of Docs canvas shoes are supposed to show up today. Woot!

Ah! It's the same logo as in the necklace I'm wearing in my icon.

Hell, they're in their 20s - of course they want money! DUH

It's one of those fast-ish burger places like Five Guys. They're ok but both red meat and fries upset my stomach so while I could have got a chicken sandwich, it seemed like too much bother for not enough payoff. If I'm going to spend calories, I'm going to spend it on stuff I really want. ;)

OH MY GAWD SO SPOILED!! GIFTS after 18? Are they FOR REAL? My family does not do that/never did that. Christmas was for the actual kids--not the adult kids who don't wanna grow up.

Ohh, I love Five Guys! It is one place we WILL eat at--it's very good quality (up here anyway, don't know if it's different somehow there) :) and yeah the fries are junky but SO GOOD... We have it once every two or three months!

So proud of you for saving your cash for more important things! <3

I like the necklace, too :)

Heh, the Deathly Hallows 3 Brothers story is right up your alley too.

Yep, the quality of Five Guys is good here too, though it seems everyone is getting into the fancy burger trend.

The stepdaughters have a crap mother so I think the Dad feels compelled to keep giving them stuff. That and they have three little girls together with her husband so she can quit whining about wanting to buy the stepkids stuff.

*eye rolls* Gotcha. Well, I hope she shuts up at least *LOL*

Looking sharp!

Love the leggings. Docs are a bit stiff at first but they get broken in.
