"....One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you..."

So.... Joe Biden, huh? I guess he's as good a choice as any to be Obama's running mate. If it couldn't be Hillary, I'm glad it's someone I know and like.

What I like the most about Joe Biden, aside from his very liberal opinions about women's health and reproductive rights, is his wife.

Jill Biden is, by all accounts, a woman with a heart of gold. An educator with a PhD, she works at a community college right now and has worked in the past with students with disabilities. She also spearheaded the Biden Breast Health Initiative -- a program whose goal is to educate young women and girls about the importance of breast self-exams and early dectection for breast cancer.

As the daughter of a teacher, I have to tell you that teachers have a special place in my heart. They're the soul of our country. Where would we all be without our first grade teachers when we were learning how to read and write? Where would we all be without that English professor in undergrad who finally made us LOVE that one Shakespeare play we had always hated.

Well done, Senator Obama. You just made me like you a little bit more. Having Jill Biden around is going to be awesome.

And on a totally different note.... look at these BOOTS!

"...I like it in the city when two worlds collide..."

As I was driving around today I had alot of time to myself. Usually, this leads to a pretty angsty state of mind. I am proud to say that I did not lapse into any maudlin self-reflection.

What could this mean?!


It must mean I'm truly content and at peace with life!

Makes me want to walk out of my store right now and go dance on the street in the amazing new outfit from Sugar that I'm wearing today!

"...It's calm under the waves in the blue of my oblivion..."

Alot of things are swimming around in my head today.

At the forefront is the realization that I am not, in fact, done with grad school yet. I fucked up a class, thought I could get it straightened out and ultimately it turns out that I need to retake the class. More money, more juggling with a full-time job, more waiting for that diploma. Bloody hell. I'm so tempted to say "screw it" and just not finish. But I know I'd end up really regretting that in the long run.

Also on my mind is the Democratic National Convention. I'm still holding out hope that Obama is going to make Hillary his running mate. What can I say? A girl can dream. And stranger things have happened in politics! So you never know!

Fall, winter and the holidays are also on my mind. I can't wait for fall. All of the amazing clothing options... all of the fun things to do around the city when it gets cooler... watching the leaves change... drinking hot chocolate... and most of all... the bonfire my parents have each Halloween that is replete with pumpkin carving, hotdogs on sticks, hot chocolate and s'mores. This year, in particular should be fun... as it seems I'll have a significant other to bring to the festivities.

...and now that I've typed that, I do realized that I just jinxed everything...

::PeaceTurkey knocks on her wooden desk::

I'll conclude this daydreamy post with a picture of boots I'll be lusting for more and more each day...

This amazing boot is by Cole Haan. They can be found here.

"...I can feel the distance getting close..."

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder...

...I'm here to tell you they're right.

It's funny how quickly you get used to someone being a part of your life...
