I just found this photo, by Brandon Long, on Flickr:
It’s amazing how everyone has gone mad for Toms shoes. It goes to show that comfort and function always win out. (Although, like most status symbols, they’re expensive!)
Here’s the pair I want:
Happy Friday, everyone. May you have lots of time to wear comfy shoes this weekend.
Weekend To Do List
*Avoid the 405 Freeway (This weekend is Carmageddon here in Los Angeles!)
*In fact, avoid car travel all together.
*Walk to the newsstand to pick up the weekend editions of the FT and the Wall Street Journal.
*Stop by the coffee shop for an iced latte.
*Walk to the market to pick up fresh greens, beets, and dried cranberries for a summer salad.
*Have lunch on the back porch where the canyon breeze is the best.
*Spend the afternoon reading in the hammock under the magnolia tree.
*Take a nap.
*Make French Toast and coffee.
*Read the Sunday New York Times.
*Walk to the movie theatre to see Harry Potter.
*Spend the evening at the park, listening to live music.
What are you doing this weekend?

PS: Here’s a very funny story about Carmageddon by one of my former LA Times colleagues.
