I absolutely adore blogging. And not just because I can moan on and on about nothing in particular, I love it because of the insight into people. Is that corny or what? Let me explain - I know there's a (modest) amount of people who do look at my blog fairly regularly, and it's been really interesting to note which topics make people comment more than others. Sure, people send their good-wishes when I'm ill (and it's happening more and more these days, grumble) and no one can resist a compliment when I post a picture of Boy (because he's stunning, of course) and for that I really do thank everyone! But apart from that...? It seems to be fish and feet. I'm not making it up - my post earlier about fish drew a few comments for regular lurkers and my number 99, of the 100 things drew yet more comments - on my ugly feet. Well, who am I to argue? You can be the judge now - I believe my feet are really ugly. Not just the toes, but the whole package. I warn you, if you don't like feet, don't look at the rest of this. Here are the pictures:
1) Yes, I did use an ungodly colour of red on my toenails, but calm down - it was the only nail polish I had. I've since gone out and bought a cheap 'oyster pink' (but then realised I had no nail polish remover, damn).
2) Yes, that is hair on my big toes, isn't that a turn-on?
3) I think that could be a wart on my right big toe.
4) Both little toes are a little chubby - I think I broke them (or at least severely bruised them by ramming them (both but on different occasions) accidentally into large bricks (don't ask))
5) Neither picture does justice to the amount of discoloured skin due to scarring, but trust me - I've had plenty of sandal-induced injuries.
(Blogger sucks. I still can't post a picture successfully)
6) Ah, the bottoms of my feet - yep, a nasty blister there under my toes
7) Good god, look at the amount of dry/dead skin there. I don't like wearing socks or shoes.
So, what's the verdict? Are you with me or not?
Kathleen Kelly: [in an email to Joe Fox] The odd thing about this form of communication is that you're more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many somethings.
