I ordered my TOMS Shoes today, with two days left to go before the Africa drop. :) This is the pair I'm getting. I wanted to buy some at the concert, but they were entirely out of my size. I wear an 8 1/2, and they had 9 1/2 or 6 1/2, neither of which would ever fit me ever. Plus, they only had white.

BUT THESE ONES ARE PINK. I AM ALL ABOUT PINK SHOES, PLUS, I REALLY NEED NEW SHOES LIKE NOBODY'S BUSINESS. Seriously. If you've seen my shoes, you know.

IN OTHER NEWS: I have no other news. THAT IS ALL.

SO, on Thursday, I had too many thoughts, now I feel like I don't have enough! THE WORLD IS DYING TO KNOW AN UPDATE ON MY LIFE AND I HAVE NOTHING TO REPORT. So you'll just have to suffer, okay?

Really, there's a lot going on, what with the busy weekend I had (concert, party, kick-off), Halloween tomorrow and NaNo fast approaching.

MOSTLY I JUST WANT MY FUCKING APARTMENT. :(

I called them again on Monday, and even though my application has been approved, they say they're still "trying to get the apartment for me". So what does it mean if they don't get it by November 5th, which is when they said I'd be moving in? I have to wait another month? I don't want to do that.

I've decided that I'm only going to live at these apartments for one year, and spend that year looking for a different place to live...but I know the odds of finding an apartment complex with good management is next to impossible, since they switch management every three seconds anyway.

What I really want is a house, but I can't even begin to afford payments on that, and plus, a house has things like lawns to be mowed, plumbing that breaks, etc. The nice thing about apartments is you've got someone else to take care of all that for you. Except that it feels like I'm throwing my rent money down the drain every month, where, if I had a house, it would be working towards paying off that house and eventually not having to make those payments anymore.

I DON'T KNOW. MAYBE I WAS LYING ABOUT THIS LACK OF THOUGHTS THING. SORRY.

A Musical Halloween Gift For You!

You are lost. The road is dark, you're tired and almost out of gas. The only light seems to be coming from a creepy looking building at the end of the road.

Sighing at the cliche, but realizing you probably won't find another sign of life anytime soon, you pull into the dirt patch they're passing off as a parking lot. As you get out of your car, you realize the place is a bar.

You push the door open and a small bell tinkles. A man is playing a haunting tune on the piano, lit by a single bulb swaying slowly from the ceiling. A few road-weary patrons listen, sip their drinks, and make an occasional comment to their neighbor.

When the song ends, a woman, wearing a dress that may have once been alluring but is now somewhat shabby and drab, begins reciting an eerie sort of monologue.

"Care to pull up a seat, friend?" a guest near the spot you are standing asks, pulling a chair out for you. "It's the yearly variety show, it's something to see," he says, gesturing to the empty spot and pushing a pitcher of questionable looking liquid your way.

You know that watching a variety show in a seedy bar like this won't get you home any faster. But the place has got a disturbing allure that reminds you of the Hotel California. You accept the seat, pour yourself a glass, and settle in for the night...

My Halloween Mix! They are all .mp3s, let me know if you have any problems downloading it or anything. The awesome syntheticjesso let me use her website for it. I spent most of this and last month working on this, trying to get it "just right" and all that jazz. :) Enjoy, and HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEEEN!!!!!!
