It's the shoes!

OK, so I've just got back from my first run with the new shoes, and I must say - diagnosis: awesome! Actually, make that: AWESOME! They're like slipping a fluffy puppy on each foot and skipping through a flower-filled meadow while a rainbow shines overhead and children giggle in the sunlight. Either that or someone just slipped something in my drink and I'm on some huge trip.


So yes, they're soooooo comfortable, and I really don't think I was pronating as much as usual. Admittedly, I have still got a little bit of pain in my knee, but it's nowhere near as bad as it was last week, and I'm figuring that it might just be a hold-over from last week's injury. Time will tell.

Marcosy has recommended that I team the new uber-trainers with a pair of X-Socks. He says they're the "X-Wing Fighter of the sock world," which sounds rather exciting, even if the X-Wing Fighters in Star Wars were a bit shabby and prone to exploding at the slightest whiff of an imperial blaster. Unfortunately, I haven't really checked out the X-Sock range because I keep refreshing the intro page to see if the woman who appears there briefly really is butt-nekkid, or if it's just lit all arty-like to make it appear so. Current thinking: she's nekkid, because I'm sure I can see nippleage!

(Also, I'm sure he won't mind me saying, but Marcosy has seen a job for 'Women in Prison' magazine that he's tempted to go for. I told him he should, but he's worried he might end up as some obnoxious Top-Dog's bitch. I disagree; I've seen many prison dramas, all have which have shown that prisons only contain the sexiest lady villains. I think he'll be just fine.)


Ooo, Graham has posted some more stuff up on our comicspace page. It's the first thing we ever collaborated on together. It's called Six Weeks, and it's all about a superhero who dies, then comes back to life and decides to fix all the world's problems before his body zombifies-up. We did the entire first issue of this bad-boy, and you can find it HERE. I think we did this about … ooo, four years ago now? See what ya think.

He also sent me the latest version of the flashback sequence I posted up the other day. Goddamn it looks AMAAAAAZING; gorgeous washed out sepia tones, watercolour-esque clouds, dialogue overlaid, the whole kit 'n kaboodle. But I'm not going to show you that yet. Ooo, such a tease!

Continuing on with your run of titles of things I would definitely go see, I would definitely go see "Diagnosis: Awesome!" I don't even know what kind of movie it is, but I'm there.

Tim said...

I don't know what it would be either, Dinah; suffice to say it would be 'awesome.'

Between this, Daytime Hooker and Oh my, It's George Takei, I think I need to be working up some TV show pitches!

Nice shoes. Even better blog.
Your post about the bird poop nearly made me pee my pants from laughing so hard. (That was probably sharing too much, huh.) I'm enjoying going back & reading your older posts, too... and...
Happy Blog Birthday, Tim!

I'm so glad you like your new shoes!
The lingering pain in your knee will probably work its way out soon. It has to have the last word, you know, before it makes a grand exit. Or it could be a combination of your knee getting used to the right shoe plus the leftover pain from it being out of whack.

Hey Julie, thanks for your kind words! And don't worry, I think the depths have been plumbed far too much on this blog already for me to worry about too much information being shared!

And - gasp! - you've uncovered my dirty little Tuesday secret!! Are you a detective!?

Tara! Yeah, I'm kinda thinking the knee pain is a last hurrah - or at least hoping that's the case! Hell, if it carries on I'm going to have it replaced with a bionic version. Enter the RoboKnee! Muwahahahahaha!!!
