i walked very tall in those shoes. the air was fresher up there for sure. :p i walked with a different stride and i could feel it. the new leather cuffed my tootsies a little so i didn't last more than 2 and a half hours in them, but i got a good kick from walking so tall nonetheless. methinks they will be wonderful stilts once the leather gets nicely seasoned.
absolutely loving the new notebook. especially that beautiful smell... i keep sniffing it like some glue/amyl-nitrate addict. i got this one to fit in my bumbag, since my older leather notebook is a size for sitting my handbag. now that i'm living the good life of a freelancer, i'm almost always with my bumbag instead of having my handbag slung on my shoulder. :)
