And read on to find out about my new kick-b*tt boots.

The most exciting thing I did this week was buy some new boots.  Here in Melbourne, it never gets cold enough that you have to wear heavy duty boots, but that doesn't stop Melbourne girls from using the onset of colder weather as an excuse to purchase.

I was originally just going to get some basic riding style boots.  Functional.  Smart.  Can be worn anywhere.  And then I saw these and all rational thoughts like 'Can I even walk in these?' floated away.

How super-sexy are they? And look at that awesome heel!  I'm about three inches taller in these (an important distinction when you're only 5'3") and I feel like an Amazon.


In other news, I had the strangest conversation with my parents earlier in the week.

My folks live in France (my mother is part French and all her family, besides me and my brother, who lives in the US, live in Paris) and, from all accounts, life is good.  Until last week when I had the following conversation with them.

Mum: You need to speak to your father.  Every week, he swears right through church.  Eff this and eff that.  It's embarrassing!  He won't tell me why he does it so maybe you can talk to him?

Me: Put him on the phone then.

Dad: What's up dude? [Yes, my dad calls me dude.  No, he's not Keanu Reeves.]

Me: Why are you swearing in church?

Dad: I'm just testing Jesus' patience.  I'm trying to see what it takes.  Your mother doesn't understand.

Ha! I love my dad.  He had a massive stroke two years ago, and is permanently disabled as a result, but, man, the guy just keeps on rocking through life like Alice Cooper.

I hope you are all well.  Have a great week everyone.  Rock on like my dad!
