Getting to Know You, April 2018

Recommended Posts

I have 3 pairs of dress shoes. down from 4 ( two brown two black ) now used for going out, used to be used for work. 

3 pairs of slip-ons.  1 summer, two winter. (these are my normal shoes)

2 pair of sneakers. One for gym one for outdoors.

1 pair bike shoes.

2 pairs XC Ski boots (two styles of binding)

2 pair high top hiking boots (probably should make one into mudding boot)

1 pair low hiking boots

2 pair mudding shoes for outside work in the mud.

1 pair sandals 1 pair flip flops

So 18 pairs.  I have the space to store them so not too many but now that I am retired I could go to 2 pairs of dress shoes. And now I probably should get rid of my old style XC bindings.  But this is too much thought for shoes.

Question, April 25: How many pairs of shoes is too many and how close to that limit are you?

  • I have a nice pair of leather shoes (Dr. Martens)
  • Pair of gym shoes for home
  • Pair of gym shoes for my former work camp.
  • Pair of hiking shoes.
  • Pair of winter shoes (shoe sized winter boots with nice traction)
  • Pair of steel toed boots at home.
  • Pair of steel toed boots at work.
  • Tons of worn out shoes that never quite get thrown out for some reason.

 

Though I don't have any hard set limit, I usually only buy shoes when the current pair is getting worn down. The soles of my last pair of shoes had gotten so flat that I kept slipping on smooth wet surfaces, nearly killing myself on several occasions in a single day.

 

P.S. Also one pair of flip-flops for the gym shower and home made comfy wool slippers (that are always on my feet at home)

When you say shoes, do you actually mean shoes - i.e. the things that we wear on our feet?  Or is "shoes" a proxy for other things that people on this forum may be buying and hoarding? :ph34r:

 

You know what - never mind.  I'll take the safe option and say that there is no such thing as too many shoes! :B):

Two pairs of black dress shoes

Two pairs of brown dress shoes

one pair of "inside" shoes and one pair of slippers

Two pairs of sneakers. 

One pair of work shoes and one pair of foul weather boots.

 

Honestly, that feels like too many shoes, but, in practice, it's really handy.  I tend to ruin one pair of dress shoes.  I'm currently short one pair of brown dress shoes (being a men's size 7 1/2 to 8 hurts when searching for shoes that fit), and I have others that fill the other roles.

Shoe shopping stinks. I have long toes, so most shoes have an arch at the ball of my foot. Ick. This is probably why I don't get shoe obsessed, even if I enjoy having a few extra pairs.

I have hiking boots, black doc martens boots, fancy brown boots, and some moccasins. Only the hiking boots aren't knee high haha. I love boots!

 

I used to love heels too, but I haven't worn them in a few years since I broke my ankle.

I am pretty sure I have too many. Whatever definition of too many you want to use. I have about 4-5 pairs that see at least weekly use, then dress shoes of all sorts, awesome boots, running shoes, then costume shoes. I do have shoes that I modified for costumes I only wore once and a few that I have yet to actually wear. So yeah. My collection can safely be considered 'too many'. 

 

I think my favorite fun shoes are the black glitter boots.

I have really wide feet with arches that collapse when I step.

 

I wear shoes under protest. Shoes hurt. Shoes try to make me keep an arch. Shoes try to shove my toes into my other toes. Shoes keep me from picking things up off the floor with my monkey feet.

Me three! 

 

When I was little I hardly wore shoes at all, so I had some serious hobbit calluses on my feet. As I grew up the occasions for wear shoes became more frequent, to the point wear I could no longer chase the ice cream man down in bare feet on hot pavement. Le sigh!

Question April 26:  If you could freeze time for 1 hour, what would you do with that hour?

I don't understand the question.  Like, what are the parameters of this "frozen" time?  Is this a once in a lifetime thing, or do we have the ability to do it repeatedly?  Can/do you interact with people or stuff in this frozen hour?  Can you unfreeze people to join you? 

 

The way I'm reading this question currently is, "what would you do with 1 extra hour in your lifespan"; and my answer to that is "probably nothing special."

      Welcome to the last 2019 instalment of Getting to Know You, December 2019 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( ...should you chose to accept them... )
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, are likely chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions will typically be posted between  06:00 hours and 09:00 hours CET. (Central European Time UYC +1)***
      3.5 (...that is 23:00 to 02:00 hours RST Reaper Standard Time UTC -6)***
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me or one of the other quisitioners.
      (But my PM box is stuffed full gimme 2-3 days to clear it out...) 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play.
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to respond (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will often take the form of two day quests, running Saturday to Sunday.
       
      ***CLEARLY I WILL ON OCCASION BEND RULES 3. And 3.5.

      It's time again for a year-end roundup of the figures I managed to finish last year. These are the figures I finished during the calendar year of 2018, which was, let me tell you, another ... interesting year.

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).
      Tablescapes Terrain WIP
      Terraincrate Terrain/dressing WIP 1- Wizard's Study general WIP
      Wizkids pre-primed minis and more minis terrain & dressing
      Bad Squiddo Freya's Wrath 
      Folklore the Affliction minis
      GW mini WIP
      Reaper Bones minis
      77434 Yeti Chieftain
      77460 Dwarf Butcher
      77624 Altar to Dagon 77343 Goroloth 77166 Balto Burrowell 77142 Bones Blacksmith WIP Show-off
      The missing minis are yet to come... I need to find where they were stashed out of the way.
      Total count 20 (actually, __)
