barefoot in the park

Ok, humor me here for a sec... Have you noticed that going barefoot is in vogue all of a sudden? I can't say I'm not a little intrigued. I have really high arches which were great for ballet, but for life...not so much. I've heard some anecdotal accounts that walking barefoot can help high-arched folk with their plantar fasciitis and general foot woes. Since my feet are already pretty battered, a little adventure into the world of naked feet won't hurt, right? 
I know my podiatrist would kill me, but I think I might start with some walks on hardpack sand at the beach, and then maybe get a pair of Vibram FiveFingers if I can get over how scary they look! Anyone have experience with them? Seeing as my boyfriend already hates clogs, I'm sure he'll LOVE my Aquaman kicks. :)

I know I'm really late to the party here, but I just saw the Kiera Knightley version of Pride & Prejudice and loved it! I actually tried to watch it back when it first came out on DVD, but truth be told, I hated the idea of Kiera as Lizzy Bennet from the beginning so I just couldn't get through it.

After a time, I finally decided that I hadn't given it a fair chance - and thank goodness I did! The cinematography was gorgeous. The swing sequence in particular was beautifully shot. Even though no one can touch Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy, Matthew Macfadyen grew on me by the end. I'm such a sap, but I loved the very last scene where you actually get to see Lizzy and Darcy post-marriage at Pemberly. The book never quite satisfied me in that respect, so it was nice to get a little pay off. :)

Love this photo that my friend Erin took - we switched cameras for a couple weeks, and this was on the beginning of the film roll. :)

Don't you just loving evening walks? Last night I went for an impromptu stroll with CB at sunset. Not the safest thing in the world, I'm sure, but I allow it when there's a male walking partner available. :)
