Boots and Cats and Boots and Cats

Saying “boots and cats and boots and cats” doesn’t make you a legitimate beatboxer, but it is tons of fun and as boots are my favorite type of shoe, sometimes my beatboxes turn into “boots and boots and boots and boots.” One of my favorite parts about living in the Bay Area is the weather, and how it lets me wear boots year-long.

I’ve been feeling like I need some black boots up in my closet, so here are some that have been catching my eye lately…and of course, some cats, too.

CATS (though I’m just gonna have to put it out there and say I’m a dog person through and through. But cats can be cool)

This is August. She is my lovely friend Shira’s baby.

This is cat wallpaper. In case you ever need or want any.

P.S.

I would never actually be able to afford any of these boots. But, if any of you out there decide to start making excellently designed black boots at reasonable prices, do let me know! Shoe cobbler-ing is probably a hugely rewarding career.

Lately Listenings

When “I Will Wait” came out, I felt it in my bones that the rest of Mumford & Son’s new album would be a good one. Garrett bought the vinyl right when it came out and we took a nice long listen to the whole thing sprawled on the floor while reading the lyrics, which were handwritten in lovely cursive over the vinyl sleeve.

There were five that became fast favorites, and one of them is “Not With Haste.” So good! So great!

Do not let my fickle flesh go to waste
As it keeps my heart and soul in its place
And I will love with urgency but not with haste

We also recently watched Big Easy Express, and oooh! To have been able to see them at one of their stops! Edward Sharpe is a riot. This documentary will definitely make you want to jump on a train and own a loose thermal dress thing to run around barefoot in.
