What do YOU do all day?

It is not unusual for some annoying jackhole to approach me, in the course of my day, and ask, with a sneer, "What do you DO all day?" Of all my daily humiliations, most notably not being recognized and financially rewarded for my brilliance, this is perhaps the most insulting. Especially because I do what just about all Working Stiffs do, namely surf the net and look for a job.

However, I do have the time to photograph myself wearing all my shoes, and then make a poster of said shoes, thereby easing my whole toilette by at least making choosing the most perfect shoe outrageously easy: I get dressed, I look at my shoe poster, and voila! I remember that the adorable wool kitten heel with black velvet piping is in a box in the closet! Why does she remain unemployed?, you ask, When she is clearly a genius?

In case you're wondering: 43.

What do I do all day? Sometime I wonder where the day goes, I know it goes at a very fast pace, and most of the time,.. it passes me by! I have never thought of taking photo's of my shoes though! Maybe it's because my feet (and my shoes) are very big!....but your shoe look very nice on your feet, maybe it's because your a ..Genius (dad)

Is that 43 pairs of shoes? I've never counted mine, but I probably have a lot since I can't bare to part with them. I think your shoe poster is brilliant!

The shoe poster is a great idea. Brian laughs at me b/c I have shoes that go with an outfit, but clearly you would understand that, what a guy not to know about girls and shoes. I love the red ones.

Who sneers that question at you? I'll...

OMG, you'll have to ask me what I was going to post, because I totally just chickened since I know that your loved ones read this. But it was awesome.

I love the shoe poster idea, too!

Happy weekend!

Thanks for the compliments, crew - Yep, that's "pairs of shoes", although I found another pair after I loaded, so it's really 44.

44. The pictures of my shoes would fit all together on a postcard. I don't know why your strategy hasn't been suggested in Martha or Real Simple.
