    I believe that the blue ones from Septieme Largeur (a pair of shoes which I was instrumental in delivering to you - one of my more interesting adventures in the geography of Paris) would qualify as totally deranged.

    Other posters - be afraid, be very afraid . . . :)

Upr, I can't thank you enough, it is not everyday you have Mr. Upr Crust as your personal courier!

    Haha. This is awesome.

    I'm new to these parts (long time lurker), but I have a pair of purple shoes I might have to break out for these. I don't know if I can take a picture, but I might have to post a picture of the shoes just because of how awesomely ridiculous they are.

    CM and mrjester, these challenges are entirely discretionary. You don't even have to look at them if you don't like them. Some have have been classic, others more adventurous. Folks have participated according to their interest, and some have received more entries than others.

    Please, let it go.

    Yeah, I know - posting too much about it. It's just sad to see that I finally have a decent enough wardrobe to participate in some of these and they're "crazy this" and "crazy that." But that's more my problem than anyone elses. Apologies for spamming the thread. Alas, I shall sit back and watch the next crazy challenge with no posts.

    Crazy sock challenge perhaps?

    thank you for posting that.
    I mean goodness gracious

    HEre are the last few challenges
    Crazy Shoe
    Unusually Colored Shirt
    Wear a hat without looking like a fool
    Grey Odd Jacket
    Game Match
    Summer Suit Challenge
    Solid Style

    There has been a consitent mix of conservative/classic challenges. If you couldn't find at least two of these to participate in then maybe you take it up with your closet and not the challenges.

    I am seriously not going to poop all over this thread so I'll just say this one thing... That's an odd reply to have written from someone who I think beats a dead horse with the "timeless/classic" thing.

    Aaaaand I'm out.

    Hiw many times have I mentioned tge timeless classic thing? I adressed it once as a response and another time as a joke to canta's post while you and jester have pestered numerous threads about this issue. It isn't like I am the only one that told you guys to drop it.

    So yes... if you feel like these competitions ae irrelvant to you... you can kindly bounce out.

    Great idea, Claghorn! I can't wait to see what kind of a creature hide wins this crazy contest.
