Diary #22

AMSTERDAM, 1996 — The Treachery of Heels.

THE HAGUE, 2012 — We’ve already established that I’m a dweeb. What more do you want me to say?

    They sure make you legs look pretty… until you fall off your feet. hehe

        It’s funny, in SL, I love heels but in RL my feet were tortured for years. I still can picture pulling my feet out of my extremely expensive Ferragamos and wondering if I’d ever walk again. Better than foot binding i guess (btw, saw a wonderful film about two “sisters of the heart” in china… it revolved foot bindings.)

          ha, I agree Yordie, flats IRL… heels in SL! 😛

          Actually I’ve mostly worn virtual flats too since they’re more “practical” or “comfortable” or “real” or something… and heels are so, you know, like your sexualized “panties”

          But then I got hooked on Maitreya Gold, my drug, er, shoe of choice. The’re a lot of fun to wear.

          Somewhere on this blog is a comment from some guy who said that he has a female avi ONLY because the SHOES are so awesome he couldn’t resist them! 😛

          IDK that Chinese film… do you know the title?
