This Is What's Wrong With The World Today

This afternoon, while painting my spare bedroom, I stepped backwards right into the can of navy blue paint. And because I had absolutely no idea what to do next, I immediately took a picture and texted it to Sean. So let's reiterate: my first priority, having accidentally smurfed myself, was to take a photograph. Before I'd even cleaned it up. And you don't even know how close I was to tweeting it.

"smurfed myself = BAHAHAHAH.

Ahem. I don't know why that made me laugh so, but there you have it.

How appropriate, with the moving premiering, it's like the universe wanted to smurfed you! ... and by the way I like that color (on the walls I'm sure it looks even better!).

If it makes you feel better, upon first glance at this photo, I figured you had gotten an awesome spa treatment that included blue wax and/or blue scrub.

In the immortal words of Tobias Funke, "you could say I BLUE myself."

Upon initial split-second glance, I thought the photo was of a pair of Skele-Toes, perhaps a pair you'd (shudder) _purchased_, and I was thinking, "good God, I completely agree: absolutely what's wrong with the world today!"

My thoughts ran along the same path as Anna's. I was nodding along with you about the gloves the cool kids wear on their feet.

At least we know now that it's a very nice navy blue!

I thought it was a new version of those awful toe shoes people seem to love these days and I was about to have to reconsider your position in my reader.

That is quite the feat (see what I did there? Feat? Feet?) Alrighty, back to work now.

Wow...that's a great color on you. I can't wait to see it on your bedroom wall as well.

I think you made the ABSOLUTE right decision. Then again, when the dog got her collar caught in the kitchen rug and dragged it around the kitchen in a panic, I totally photographed her before freeing her. But I did free her before texting.

Mads, I am laughing so hard.

Kristin -- After I'd taken the picture, i stood there (on one leg) for a second, pondering, then hopped to the kitchen and wiped most of it off with paper towels. Then I sat on the edge of the tub and stuck my foot under the shower for five minutes.

I probably would've made footprints all over the wall, and then left them there till my husband came home. And then been like, "oh my gosh! A smurf broke into our house!"

I love reading your blog in the morning! My computer it seems will never stay clean since I continue to spew coffee all over it!
