<quoted text>Are these shoes or strappy sandals? i forget which way the vote went... ;-)

if they're shoes, try smushing the top of the toes back to the top of the heel (put a shoe on your hand, toe by your finger tips, and "close" your fingers towards your wrist) and then also try smushing the back of the heel (where your achilles comes out) to the bottom of the shoe (where your heel sits). these moves should loosen the leather (or leather like material); do it a couple times a day until then, and they should loosen just a bit...

but then, if it's the ball of your foot or the balance of the heel that you're working on, time and practice! ;-)
Yeah, it's the whole all-my-weight-on-the-balls-of- my-feet thing. The shoes themselves are fine, no pinching or blisters.

Walgreens or CVS or DSW has gel foam pads to put under the ball of the foot which will cushion things.

Is this a cocktail party format or a sit down dinner at the restaurant?

Seriously, what's with these gayass books your friends read? I just read Dan Brown's latest "Inferno." I recommend that, instead.
That actually looks pretty interesting. Might check it out.

Shh...don't tell anyone, but book clubs are created for the same reason bunco groups are...to get 30+ year old women, usually young moms, out of the house regularly. The actual book doesn't matter. Bunco doesn't matter. It's an excuse, if you will, for women who either won't give themselves a break OR, in a couple cases, unfortunately, their husbands won't.

Guy on Criminal Minds tonight was rockin' out to a Rush bootleg album/CD from a concert. Then he died. Big stick through the neck. But hey, he heard a kickass live version of 2112, so it's all good.

I cannot believe how polite the cops were. Down here that guy would have been jacked up for yelling in their face.
I cant understand why they did not disarm him sooner? I know in FL, a cop is allowed to temporarily take you weapon while they question you (give you a ticket, whatever) but have to return it when they are done.

Any craft beer lovers here? This list ignorantly excludes the Surly brewery here in Mpls, but I think beer lovers will enjoy the slide show.

Yeah, that whole freedom of speech and unlawful search really makes a cops job tough. Hey! Maybe if they dont like people expressing their opinions, they should get another job?

I aint saying a cop should put up with being spit on, but I see too many times where a person gets pummeled by the cops because he wont shut up, and that is wrong. Sticks and stones man.

This was big news back when it first broke -- Feb. 2012 -- but I think that's because Target's HQ is here, so Target is in our news quite a lot, especially the business management angle.

"What Target discovered fairly quickly is that it creeped people out that the company knew about their pregnancies in advance."

When you call various businesses/utilities, you may be asked for your name, home phone, and other info, but invariably, they already have all that info right in front of them, and they are asking for it from you for two reasons:(1) they want to verify that it's YOU, and (2) customers had been freaking out when they didn't have to provide any of it, that they were told "Oh, I have that info already right here on my screen."

Yeah, I'm going to get the gel pads tonight. It's cocktail party format; passed hors d'oeuvres and open bar.

That's a given. Dudes don't care about shoes.
Let's be real. Women dress up more for other women to one-up them.

Shoes are for the other women to fawn over, push up bras are for the boys even if they are initially made to push up the girls.

I have no doubt you will look stunning. Just remember to walk slow. Swing those hips!
