Tell Me Something You Couldn't Care Less About

Want know what I couldn't care less about? The fact that everyone is always ragging on Uggs.

Yep, Uggs. They're just soooooo ugly, right? They make my already stumpy legs look stumpier. They give me duck feet. Wearing Uggs means a case of the cankles. They look equally dumb over pants and under them. Shannen Doherty wears them with miniskirts when it's hot in LA. Stick each foot in a loaf of pound cake and you have a pretty good idea of what these boots do to the silhouette of your feet. All signs point to worst trend ever.

But hello, yours truly lives in New England where, snow or no snow, January and February usually* bring on the wicked winter weather. And maybe I'm just a super weenie, but my poor wittle toesies get amazingly cold. So cold that I practically want to die when I'm sockless and they touch each other under the covers at night. Brrr.

The best solution I have found yet for my near glacial feet is Uggs. They keep my feet roasty-toasty when it's pushing 0F outside and my floors suddenly turn into ice sheets. We even have wee matching kiddie Uggs for the P. since I want her feet to be nice and snug until springtime rolls around again. We call them her princess boots. Adorable, no?

So, my apologies, fashionistas! Sorry, legs! And vegans, too, though mine are secondhand and that's a game-changer in our household. Which you may think is gross, but I'm the one wearing them so mind your manners and hush up about it. 

Now it's your turn - tell me about something you couldn't possibly care less about!

* Um, except for last year.

  1. Well, I do LOVE my Uggs, but not because of the way they look, but because of how warm they keep my tootsies. I have the coldest feet and in my Uggs, they are nice and toasty. I just didn't get the same warm, sweaty feeling with the fake ones LMAO.

    1. I tried the fakeys so they wouldn't be leather but they made my eczema worse so it was natural or nothing for me!

  2. We are an Ugg family, too. Of course ours are knock-offs from Payless. They are vegan. They are toasty warm. My girls and I have matching ones, too! I could care less about the fashion aspect of it. If you want to feel better, though, my 16 year old niece and all her friends wear Ugg knock-offs. These are the homecoming court, work at Aeropostale, boy-chased, popular girls. My niece has the exact same ones as me!

    As for things I don't care about: resolutions to lose weight/work out more. Showering everyday. Single-cup coffee makers. The Oscars.

    Ahh. Thanks for letting me get all that off my chest!

  3. Similarly, I am totally indifferent to the venom people have for Crocs. I don't get it. They're comfy and convenient for certain things, and I see much uglier footwear around the place all the time, yet they seem to fill people with raging disapproval. Meh, I say. Mmeh.

    1. My take is that if you have so much time to worry about footwear, you're not busy enough.

  4. Uggs?! I think they are fall boots. when it's cold here, I've got my BIG ol' Sorel- type North Face, waterproof klunker boots. No such thing as a fashion statement when you live in Northern NH!
    I couldn't care less about all the wackadoo pro-gun, militia of one, "my cold dead hands!" crazies posting on Facebook. Or could I?

    1. I have a paid of clunkers rated for some ridiculous low - it doesn't drop that low here, but my feet! They're cold! When it snows, my feet look like submarines.

  5. I couldn't careless what people think about me wearing exercise pants outside, in the winter. They're the only thing I find that don't put pressure on my growing preggo belly. Even if I do look a bit lie a pirate when they are tucked into my snow boots.

  6. I do hate when the comment form won't let me backspace and correct autocorrections though.. ;)

  7. sweat pants need to make a comeback, ok maybe not as office clothes, but as acceptable run-to-target and go-to-playground. They're the comfiest! and easily washable! Sometimes you wonder if the role of the fashion industry is to outlaw everything that feels comfortable. Snobs.

  9. I have bright yellow knee high moon boots. So yeah, I'm not worried about Uggs :)

    Things I don't care about: most of the stuff on "the news"?

  10. I couldn't care less about makeup. I sometimes even skip it on date nights. Sometimes I like to feel pretty, usually it's just a waste of time. I mean, I don't even get to enjoy it since I can't see it!

  11. One of my coworkers recently had a massive stroke and will likely be disabled for the rest of her life. Several of my other coworkers have gone to visit her and are asking for donations, since she can no longer work. Me? I couldn't care less.

    I feel a little guitly that I feel nothing over this, but I do. I feel nothing. The coworker in question had several smaller strokes in previous years, yet still smoked a pack a day against the advice of every doctor and every shred of common sense possessed by man.

    I do understand that her life has changed dramatically - and most tragically, likely permanently - and while I'm not quite saying that she deserves it, I mean... com'mon. When you're staring death in the face, aren't you supposed to try your hardestto do everything you can to avoid it?

    (Posting anonymously since this is work related, on the off-chance that anyone puts any pieces together ever. And since I am a coward and I feel guilty. Also that.).

    1. Wow, not surprised you're posting anon. (And for the record, I have no clue who you are.)

      It kind of reminds me of this time in high school when we were on a school trip to an amusement park for a comp. This girl with an eating disorder passed out and ended up in the park infirmary and the other kids in my group suggested buying her a present to cheer her up. I wouldn't kick in because I felt like she'd be getting rewarded with attention for something she was doing to herself. She needed treatment, not a stuffed animal.
