Yup.  Sand, from Ebay.  Hopefully on their way. I like the dark brown, but I would never wear them.  I just sorta have this psychological thing against dark footwear with anything other than a suit.  I look in the mirror, and feel that I look like I have tiny tiny feet, even if they are the chunkiest things in the world.  
Maybe a flower, but I think after all of the mac and cheese that I am gonna eat, i think that it will be difficult to be delicate after eating a lot of this:  Here is the write up from Serious Eats (http://newyork.seriouseats.com/2010/03/the-best-macaroni-mac-and-cheese-in-nyc-new-york-manhattan-brooklyn.html) that puts them as tied for number one Mac n Cheese in NYC. Sauce: Deep cheese flavor in a beautifully silky béchamel.
