    So, yesterday I had my second fitting at Oscar Hunt. Was super impressed and super happy with my Suit. They were altering the lower back a little and adjusting the trousers. Going back Tuesday. Can't wait. Even got a black paisly lining which looks fantastic.

    After that it was Birthday Drinks at Asian Beer Cafe which was nice.


    EXCEPT......

    I decided to go #sexyankles and didn't wear socks. With my new Red Wing Postmans. That was a mistake and a half.

    I couldn't walk properly and I had to take them off once we left ABC because it hurt so much. They cut me the fuck up.

    So much pain. They better soften up. Looked real good though. Solid outfit.

    Had my Sierra Trading post order come. Got heaps of Cedar Hangers, really happy with them. Smell so good too. All other suspicious wardrobe smells eliminated. Wish I had of done this years ago.

    Man that looks nasty.

    Had that happen to me once and I couldn't wear shoes to work (or play soccer) for a week and a half...

    Also, Asian Beer Cafe?

    Foxy, in October had my birthday drinks. New loafers, started wearing them 5 in the afternoon and got home around 6:30 or so. A far bit of walking I assume. Something similar but much much worse. The wounds are still not healed! Might even scar if I'm lucky. But yes, much worse than this. Much much worse. No pics though.... Fortunately.

    I have permanent scars on my toes / under my ankle / on my heel from my bodyboarding fins. I had a hole in my heel the size of a 20c piece at 1 point. Use strapping tape NOT band-aids if its bad.

    I dont think electrical tape is adhesive enough. You leave the sports tape on for a week or so. It also doesn't breathe.
