About this blog: I was born and raised in Livermore with scientist parents who moonlight as musicians and a brother who is much louder and much more fun than I am. I am a published and very poorly paid author of the young-adult fantasy 'I Am Not Lost,' available on Amazon, and a worshiper of Stephen King. I am a connoisseur of human folly, a huge fan of Monty Python, and full of sarcasm. I understand that sarcasm is supposed to be the lowest form of humor - that doesn't make it any less fun. 'LOL (Lessons on Laughter)' is full of the things I come across on the internet that tickle my funny bone and elicit my trademark cackle. My only goal is to brighten someone's day with the absurd, the ludicrous, the facetious, the nonsensical and the satiric. Warning: bad puns ahead. (Hide)

I'd like to put shoes in perspective for the masses. In particular, the universal obsession women have with shoes. As one of those women, I feel that I have the expertise to remove some of the mystery from the subject.
Shoes make or break an outfit. A little black dress might as well be a potato sack if worn with an ugly pair of sandals or worn out tennis shoes. Shoes can make legs look infinitely longer and more shapely, can give a flirtatious air to an otherwise conservative outfit, and the click-clack of heels striding down a hall is a symphonic announcement of "I'm here. Now stare in awe, shut up and listen to what I have to say."
Shoes are a status symbol. Whether recognizable as a certain brand or not, the elegance and make of a shoe is obvious at a glance. Cheap shoes are like a cheap car. Roll up in a 90's Kia and everyone suddenly assumes you live in a trailer park.
But these are only words. To illustrate my point, I give you an example in film of the power of shoes. A classic story and film that shows just how important shoes really are.
