New Boots!

Post by A_Morley » Fri May 23, 2008 10:56 am

I have a pair of 2008 English Sportsman's Burnished Leather Brogues! Just your standard Men's US size 13 brown leather boots, but I should be able to walk something like five to seven thousand miles in them, which is a big step up from my 2004 buffalo leather Chelsea boots which have a big crack in the leather where running along the top of the sole...

So I guess I won't be buying any Dunhills or Balkan Sobranie for a long time haha, since these boots way overfill my yearly quota of pretentious English accessories. My parents haven't been seen in years, but if they were around and hadn't blown their money on cheap whiskey I'm sure they would have been generous to loan me the money for new boots, as long as I told them that I was going to buy an electric guitar or something. I don't think that any bank would loan me money to buy boots. The other good thing is that if I ever had a girlfriend in the Bay Area, I could wear these boots when I went to see her and I am sure she too would agree that they were very nice boots indeed haha

So you would say that those boots were made for walking?

Nice! I just purchased some new boots, though they are made for wildland fire fighting. They should last a couple thousand miles, and their completely rebuildable.

Are these the ones?

In any case, congratulations on the new boots. Enjoy, and for heaven's sake, get a pair of proper boot trees and take care of those things.

Congrats Morley! Boots rock! I wear boots everyday of the week. Are they lace ups or wellingtons? I found that I actually prefer wellingtons after years of wearing lace ups. Depends on what you are wearing them for though. I mostly operate equipment at work so I can get away with them. I've also learned that gore tex sucks. lol. It's great for the first year but after that it seems to plug up and retain moisture and bacteria in the boots and then it's just plain not sanitary.

An excellent choice, sir. May I recommend these people for accessories to show off your new boots to their full advantage?

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Those are keen boots and all. But I've got much bigger fish to fry here:

Alastair, I've been struck this afternoon by a very strong sense (call it whatever you like -- brainstorm, conviction, or epiphany) that you really should adopt the nickname "Flapjacks." In fact, it's less a question of adopting the nickname than it is recognizing that "Flapjacks" *is* your nickname, in some unavoidable, deeply ontological sense.

And I'm not talking about messing with your right honourable, legal name. In fact, the nick loses its fundamental significance without the quotation marks. I'm talking: Alastair Morley "Flapjacks" Jaques. "Flapjacks" for short. And "That's Mister 'Flapjacks' to you, bub" to any who dare hazard the overly familiar "Flappy."

And, no, I haven't been drinking.

Yet.

Yeah, shut up, pasty boy. I'm the one with fish to fry here.

To be blunt, you're completely ignorant on the subject of boots. You have no concept of footwear. You don't even know how much you don't know. I may barely even qualify as having feet, let alone shoes, but your sheer stupidity of a bald faced certainty. You said so many stupid things about boots that all I can imagine is you literally being a big ol' sack of stupid: a sack full of misbegotten notions with "stupidity" written across the front of it. I particularly love this little gem... of stupidity

Did I mention that I have access to a web browser and that means I can say with all certainty that Wellington boots are only made of rubber and PVC, stupid. Well they are. I'm staggering, not only because I, like Dug, have been drinking, but also because you are so stupid that the ignorance of you literally physically manifests itself as a noxious, pink vapor of sheer idiocy that smells like spoiled veal and makes it hard to keep my balance. It's breathtaking.

But now, frankly, I'm going to call you stupid again because you're just so very stupid. You'll be wandering around for days looking for them and that will just make it apparent to everybody else just how stupid you are.

Just this. If you believe so much that there is such a thing as a pair of leather Wellingtons, go out and buy them and wear them on your stupid feet, stupid.

You are probably a true believer in non-PVC wellingtons. I don't admire this. The fact remains, you can't buy them because they don't exist. But go for it. If I'm wrong, you could have a pair of leather Wellingtons someday... but they will still look stupid on you because you, sir, are stupid.

Hi cutie!

It seems accurate to suppose that Sanchez was not adequately socialized in a public school.

At the very least, he did not get enough nappy-time during kindergarten.

What makes you think I was talking about Sanchez? Considering the number of people who have posted, there is a chance that at least one has been home schooled. Of course, now that YOU have entered the discussion, the odds change dramatically.

And drop the flirting. It's annoying.

Sanchez, your polemic on the good Sir's poor word choice would have been quite a blow were it not for this awful, awful sentence, which strips your diatribe of any credibility.
Sanchez wrote:I may barely even qualify as having feet, let alone shoes, but your sheer stupidity of a bald faced certainty.
What? Did you miss the day when they discussed verbs in grammar class? Fixing it is as simple as tacking on an intransitive verb likestandsbefore the period, but no, you couldn't proof read for sentence fragments.

And it'sbold-faced certainty.Bald-faced certaintyrefers to the resolve of a clean-shaven man, which SirTirithon is not. If you happen to be in the British Isles, you might hear ofbare-faced certainty,referring to now-antiquated head coverings, butbald-facednesshas nothing to do with certainty unless you are remarking on facial grooming, whereasbold-facedwas first used to suggest a strong, confident expression that frequently accompanies impudence in Shakespeare'sHenry VI—a much stronger pedigree than your phonic misconstruction, which didn't appear in English until 1648.

I can't even begin to tell you how many ways a reader could misinterpret the second clause because of your grammatical hamfistedness. And you accuse Mr. Tirithon on the basis of his sloppy language. The audacity!

Look here, young upstart. I most certainly have not been drinking. Not even water. For at least 12 days.

As much as I hate to part ways with your esteemed father, A.M. "Flapjacks" Jaques, you're only making the case I pleaded to him a decade ago. "Spare the rod, spoil the Sanchez," I maintained. But NO, according to the tome on Emotive Parenting that was always under his arm back then, that would have "inhibited your self actualization," or some such. Phuh. Now look at you: An abrasive, abusive, homeless, footless ne'er-do-well.

As the Brits might say, it's people like you what put the "screa" into "miscreant."

And I have not been drinking.

And what Colton said, too.

(I have reason to believe that he also has not been drinking.)

Sorry... I didn't mean to hijack the thread.

I just can't help the way my heart goes pitter-pat when you-know-who is on the board!

So... Sanchez is getting schooled in the use of verbs, and Ol' Flapjacks got some new boots.

New boots are great.... my son got some new boots at Boot Camp last week. He is very excited about them! "Desert Sand" style.

You two-timing womanizer, all the time you spent on the computer I thought you were downloading pirated mp3s and software. Instead I find you carrying on with some bloated hussy.

That its mister, when you come home don't expect me and the 16 kids to be waiting for you. Maybe I'll go cavort with Zed see how you like that.
