not sure if i aen't ded or not  
My friends, I have returned! With a fifteen-essay obs and gynae exam under my belt, along with an unconscionable number of packets of crispy M&Ms. Tomorrow is surgery, or 'butchery and boredom' as I have with all possible fondness nicknamed it.

As usual on this thing, I have a question. And it is: has anyone ever used Insolia (Insolias? Insoliae?)? If so, did they help? I picked up the rec from weddingplans, where I lurk with adequate shame, otherwise I wouldn't have believed it.

Here's why I want to know ... My super fierce graduation shoes! They are so fierce and also SO HIGH. I would post fierce pics but I'm using my new iPhone, Christabel (named after a character in me new favourite book, Possession. YOU GUYS, poke me to write up the TWELVE BOOKS I read on my study hiatus or I'll lose the run of myself completely, k?)

There, I think that's enough questions ... For now.

I have no idea about the shoes but... a book you liked? I totally wanna know!

Ha, it is pathetically rare, is it not? :D Don't worry, you shall soon know all!

I got to read Possession for a university class, which almost made me consider an English degree -- right up until the poetry unit slapped me in the face and made me cry bitter tears of hatred.

No idea about the Insolia things, though. Haven't worn high heels since last summer. Have barely worn anything but pyjamas and wool socks since January, actually.

I thought you meant the poetry part of Possession, which, I have to say, did not exactly convince me. Particularly whatever ten page 'extract' she put in ... Was it from Melusine or Ragnarok, I can't recall. Then again, for at least half the book I thought they were real people.

I do not know Insolia. But, from the picture, they look like they're on the entirely wrong section of the foot. I would not shift my weight to the back completely. With the higher heels, I'd tumble right over. But, if it's recced, go ahead.

Definitely post pictures of the shoes. I feel a sudden desperate need to see them. And tell us about the books. Please? I need more books like a hole in the head, but then again, I've always been partial to lobotomies. :)

Whereas that's the aspect that attracted me, because the ones that go under the ball of the foot seem merely to exacerbate the problem by squashing my toes. :(

Technically that would be a craniotomy. :P But yes, I've maintained the trend for two years - a puny thing like finals is no reason to let it slide.

Ha! Craniotomy, yes. And you're right, now that I think of it. The others do squash my toes. Good luck with the shoes, and don't forget to post the pictures. I crave. :D
