uggggggly

I succumbed! I bought some Ugg boots from the Warewhare today. They were only $15, and they're called Pamela (I imagine after Ms Anderson, but my mother is called Pamela too, so I think they're funny).

I've lived in the Hutt for three years now, and that is obviously how long it takes to totally drop ones standards and shelve ones pride.

I think I'd better head back there tomorrow and buy a Shakira CD.

At least you're not from Upper Hutt. When I tell other Kiwis where I come from, they take an instinctive step back :-(

Which is another reason to pretend Canadianism.

Tell ya what, the girls popped out he other day & returned with a DVD of Black Eyed Peas videos...

Maybe Shakira could compete (and I see little point in anything involving Shakira that doesn't have moving pictures..) with Fergie, but I doubt it....

hot, hot, hot!

Oh... and we all bought ugg boots. I wore them through the 80s & right now, in a house with no heating, they seemed sensible.

And you guys are from the big smoke, so I feel a bit better.

Did you see Fergie in the Kia Kaha dress?

And David (instinctively steps back) - I still would take someone from Upper Hutt over Canada ANY DAY.

Ugh!

Meh I have never been into Ugg Boots - I know heaps of people that have them, personally I think they look hideous!

llew said...

Slippers with soles... it's pragmatism!

dON'T GET ME WRONG, i WOULDN'T BE SEEN DEAD IN THEM OUTSIDE THE HOUSE.

oops... caps....

Sadly I obsessed over Shakira in her Whenever wherever whatever video. Oolalala...

Martha said...

Mmm, me too. I was pregnant with Finn then, and imagined I'd look a bit like that after I had the baby. You're quite deluded in that first pregnancy...

Brena said...

It's the wiggle of the jiggle that counts...

Mr Reasonable said...

Confession of a middle aged man:
I have the Shikira CD in my car and enjoy the latino version of Whenever a bit more than the English. Its that rolling lippy thing that she does and lets not even start me on the jiggle...

Martha said...

Mr Reasonable. I am shocked. Does the fact it is in your car make it less naff? Or does it mean you somehow got it free so you didn't spend money on it?

Then again, I'm not one to be a music snob. I own the Spice Girls - although that is directly related to the fact I used to have a very drunken social life - which requires crap music to yell at the neighbours at the end of the night. (sorry Austin St, Rixon Gr, Ohiro Rd, Devon St, Majoribanks st, Molesworth St, Semeloff Tce, Adams Tce and Bolton St Petone - but only once).

Mr Reasonable said...

I have no excuse. I paid money for it but, in my defense, I was in an erotic haze due to the jiggling and general wailing thing. I am a man and, therefore, cannot be held responsible for my actions when jiggling is going on. We are weak, weak, weak.

Martha said...

Ah well, you said it.

And she does do nice jiggling.
