I feel stupid...and contagious.

I'm buying these. I don't care what you say. They're mine!

Oh they're pristine. They're beautiful! They are Chuck-a-licious.

It's about time I bought I new pair. I've owned and worn my old pair of Chucks since 1991.

Sixteen years. Since high school. Since the days I smelled like teen spirit. When the lights are on, I'm less dangerous. I've written Oingo Boingo lyrics in Bic pen on this pair. It's a spandex obsession.

This isn't my only pair of old crusty Chucks. Oh no! I bought this pair in 1992. The spirit of Christmas moved me.

These had jingle bells attached to the back of the shoes, but I removed them. They were not kick-ass. Jingling does not get along well with Oingo Boingo lyrics.

I will receive my leathery new Chucks in 6-10 days. You may send your congratulations then.

"Becky, congratulations on being a great big dork. Wear those Chucks with pride."

Don't worry, I will.


  1. Oddly enough, I was just wondering yesterday if I'm too old to wear Chuckies.

    I'm still undecided.

  2. I have a pair too, black ones.
    My students look at me and say "cool". Then I feel I am alive again.

  3. I guess I am just too old- I am not familiar with Chuckie shoes. Does this mean that you will chuck the old ones when the new ones arrive? Is there any demand for used Chuckies?

  4. You're not too old for Chuck Taylors Dick! Whatever did you wear in gym class? They've been around since before YOU were born!

  5. just stumbled here from over at Wil's blog, and now I must go buy new chucks :)

    Also, w00t for nevada!

  6. Dear gawt in heaben .....
