pissed off
Manufacturers! Do they think that everyone wants to have the latest model? Don't they realise that some of us buy stuff that we like because it fits, suits the purpose for which it was designed, as well as because we like it?

I had a problem earlier this year with the sandals that I use as indoor shoes/slippers. Hotter, the manufacturer, no longer makes the style I want. They do a similar style - high velcro fastening above the ankle for support - but it has a wedge heel, I want totally flat sandal like the ones I'm wearing at the mo'. Now, I discover that Stonefly no longer does the Luzerna boot that I damaged on the cruise this year. They do a similar one but it has a square toe (who on earth are they designing for - aliens? No one I know has square shaped feet.) It also only has 3 eyelets, my Luzerna boot has 7.

Packing now for my sewing weekend. See you all when I get back on Monday. Have a great weekend y'all.

Happy flat-hunting bogwitch.

jennylyle I'll check that I've set your LJ settings to accept html in comments but I think your inability to see the drop down box to select the picture to use when you comment may have something to do with your browser settings, or perhaps your work PC setup has something to do with it. You are talking about when you make a comment on this page aren't you, and not when you try to do something by email? Do you want some Spikey goodness icons adding to your userpics for when you can use them? Oh, and I agree totally with the frustration of trying to teach you something without being able to show you what I mean.

I've chickened out, I'm not going to bother. He knows, that's enough.

According to the goss, he's got himself a new girlfrend (after someone at his work turned him down). This woman is supposed to be quite well off, and he's claimed his only after the money. Methinks he's deeply insecure and only wants to hurt me. Funny enough though, it doesn't at all. It's hard to be jealous over someone who has become someone I don't recognise at all.

That's creepy.I tell you, there's something about insecure men and hitting thirty. That's precisely what happened with the daughter's ex. Her words were he's away with the fairies.

I'm always amused thinking of the poor perfumerers. I'm sure that their marketeers would love to release new perfume formulations all the time, yet they have customers who long ago decided that, say, Chanel No. 5 is their scent and who will not take happily to older products being withdrawn.

Thank goodness they know this. MWNN brought me some Diorella back from Dublin. His sis scared the daylights out of me by telling him when they withdraw it, you can get her Dune instead it's very similar. That word - similar has a lot to answer for.

Just remember this. When you're 85 you'll be just like the old gran with her Lily of the Valley.

Yoo hoo ---- yes I am talking about a comment on this page and YES I would love some Spikey icons. Walking down the street today I saw a "Spike look-a-like" lunching by himself at a sidewalk cafe - it took ALL my willpower not to sit down beside him and engage him in animated conversation --- see what you have turned me into --- a "Spike junkie"!!
