Go ahead, hate me, it's ok...

The tag on my door yesterday foretold the arrival...the Package.  I hastily scribbled my name with nervous hand and stuck the FedEx tag back on my door, in anxious anticipation to when the driver would come back the next day and accept my illegible scrawl in exchange for...the Package.

I drive up this evening and see The Package on the stoop.  It looks innocent, benign, unassuming.  The plain cardboard box sat there, beaconing me to cradle it in my arms and take it inside.  I looked at the label...Zazzle.com.  My heart jumped.  They're 2 weeks early!  It's THEM!

I rip at the cardboard with reckless abandon, not different than an anxious child on Christmas morning tearing at his presents.  I gasp at the sight...They're beautiful, nay, GLORIOUS!
My new custom Haunted Mansion Wallpaper Pro-Keds hi-top sneakers!
Furry white legs not included.

That's hair, not varicose veins.

Close-up of the pattern, I wish it had been a tiny bit more saturated in the color but heck, I'm an easy guy to please!

I had a 40% off coupon during Labor Day weekend and decided to give Zazzle.com a shot at shoes since I was so happy with my previous shirt printing.  You get to customize EVERYTHING, including stitching, eyelets, sole color, laces and all trim and lining. This is my official shoe of the Hallowe'en season. 

I are happy!

I would tell you those are spooktacular, but then you might curse at me...ha! ;o)

So I'll just say they are the cat's meow. Creative and festive for the upcoming season. Shoes most befitting a gentleman of much macabre-ness! :o)
