Tuesday Tootsies

In honor of the Superbowl this past week, Darc suggested I do something on football shoes.  I thought that was an excellent idea.  So I went here –>>NFL Footwear to do a search.  I found that right now, Colts and Saints fans can pretty much only get their feet into some way cool socks, and some slippers, although if you are a guy you can get some golf shoes too. 

So, here’s some nifty keeno socks for fans of the reigning Superbowl champs.  I like the pink ones.  🙂



And here’s some for the other team that also went to the Superbowl this year.



Now, if you’re a Patriots fan, and a woman, you can get these awesome sneakers, with the cool Flying Elvis logo on the back with the sparkly silver stripes on the side.  What?  You didn’t think I was going to let a post having to do with football go without mentioning the Patriots, did you?



And Patriots sneakers for the men.  😀


If you would like some football love for your feet, click the pics (or the link above) for more info. 

And have an awesome Tuesday!

Monday Mayhem

The joys of being 4:

During prayer, my daughter said, “Seasons change every day, Lord, thank You!”

During play she said, “That’s Spidey’s secutity web, look out!”


I almost got 100% on my football picks this weekend! 

What I’m neglecting to mention is that most of my picks were wrong.  And considering there were only 4 games, well … .  🙄


It’s the end of week 2.  I miss you, nicotine!  But in a contest of wills, I WIN!


I passed the 100k milestone the other day.  No, not miles on the car!  We passed that ages ago.  I’m talking blog hits here, people! 

And I thank you, for without you, there wouldn’t be anywhere near 100k hits.  🙂


A cool website you readers out there might like – Shelfari.  It’s a place where you can create a bookshelf and add books to it you’ve read, or are reading, or are planning to read.  It’s basically an online book club kind of thing.  And if you have a Blogger page, you can get a cool widget to put on your blog.  They say they’re in talks with WordPress to create a widget for us, but time will tell.  WordPress is kind of anti-java/anti-shockwave – and for the record I’m NOT blaming them for that.  But I would like to be able to use cool widgets.  In the meantime, I have a Blogger page to handle my widget envy.  Actually, I have several.  I use them to catch the Google Reader stuff that I read and want to save and pass along.  Yes, I am a blogging fool.  Now, what else did you want to know about me?  Oh yeah – if you’re on Shelfari or planning on joining (it’s free), look me up!


Now for the smile to get your Monday off to a good start.  🙂

I hate Mondays!

Heath Ledger
more lol celebs!


Especially the Monday after the SuperBowl.  Do you know what this means???  No more football for 6 whole months!  Oh sure, there’s the draft, and training camp, blah blah blah.  But there’s no football.  And I want football!  Please hurry September!  I miss you so!

Oh, btw, happy Groundhog Day!

Weekend Weaknesses

It’s been sort of a quiet weekend here in the Darc household.  We got a ton of snow at the beginning of it, close to a foot, I’m sure.  I thought about taking a picture of it but … nah.  Seen one blank page, you’ve seen ‘em all, and that’s all snow looks like – a big blank page, only colder. 

We watched football, a lot of football.  I should really say that Darc watched football while I listened as I played my Sims.  They were some good games, too!  The Championship games next weekend are going to be really exciting, I think and I’m looking forward to seeing them.  And after that, just one more game, (not counting the Pro Bowl because really, who counts the Pro Bowl?) and then football’s over, OVER until next September.  Maybe I could make a Tom Brady Sim?  Now there’s an idea!  There is a sports star career track … . 

My baby Falcon is a wit already.  Know what she said to me?  We have this thing, where I ask her, “Howdja get so cute?” and she would giggle in response.  Now she says, “I’m cute because I love you so much!”  That kid!  I swear, I’m like putty in her little hands.  And my son is a mini-Darc, already mocking TV shows and the voices he hears on commercials.  He’s got Grampu down pat, and if you don’t know who Grampu is, don’t worry, you probably will after you have toddlers in the house.  ;) 

I’ve also become re-absorbed in reading The Stranger Beside Me, by Ann Rule.   It’s been a long time since I last read it, and while there’s some updated information in this latest release, it’s almost like reading it for the first time, again.  I think what fascinates me is that I probably wouldn’t have known any better either, like Ann herself didn’t know, that the nice young man she befriended was so twisted.  Surely you’re not talking about my friend!  No, no, my friend isn’t a sexual psychopath serial killer!  I would know something like that!  Yeah, we all like to think that, don’t we?  I’m only half-way through the book, and despite knowing how it ends, I can’t put it down.  Ted’s been dead 20 years now, and still he captivates and mesmerizes.  One can only imagine he was even more so in life. 

Back to the Sims to raise the babies, send them to college, marry them off.  In some expansion packs you can make vampires and werewolves, I’ve read.  Gardener me, I made a PlantSim.  :)  One thing’s for sure though, there are no serial killers in Simland.

Well … it’s over

This map was made or improved by the Wikigraph...

I had an amazing run on blog stats for about a week and a half.  I knew it couldn’t last – I mean, c’mon, people looking for funny were coming to my blog!  But it seems that WordPress has fixed that little glitch in the matrix now so I’m back to being simply the Queen of Chicago Sucks, and no longer the Empress of Funny Pictures.  Oh well, a girl had dreams.  ;) 

Our Internet is still up and running, FAST, so we are happy here in the Darc Household.  I’ve been on tenterhooks all day, waiting for it to go down again, but it hasn’t, so maybe it will hold this time.  Woo!  But, the maintenance guy that was supposed to come take care of a few things in my apartment never showed up.  I called on Friday to put my work order in, and they told me they’d have someone here on Tues.  Tuesday afternoon I called, and was told that no one put my work order in on Friday, but she promised, promised someone would be out TODAY.  Well, that was yesterday.  No one showed.  So I kept my bra on all day for nothing.  ;)  And know what that means?  I have to keep it on all day today for whenever they show up, and they probably will while I’m in the shower or something.  Hey, nothing like some strange guy walking into your apartment when you least expect it, even when you’re expecting it, you know?  My life’s just all fun like that.  :D 

And good grief, the regular season opens tomorrow night and I haven’t even made my picks yet and gotten my football posts up!  I’m lagging!  Oh noes!  Guess what I’ll be doing today?  It’s football seasonnnnnn!!  Woooooo!

Here’s a bit of funny, in case you come here looking for it.  😀
