Fluevogs -- I went to Fluevog, as I do every year or two. The idea was to look at a nice sensible plain pair, and naturally those things hated my feet and my feet hated them right back. These chunky, mildly witchy platform sandals though? Surprisingly wide toebox and a comfortable stride. I wouldn't have picked them out online, but they came home with me, and on some non-rainy day soon I'm going to startle my co-workers by wearing them. How deliciously tall I will be, that day. :-)

Head scritches from the corporate overlords -- behold, my highest ever performance rating! It seems to have been a combination of me dealing with some next-level shit and the bar moving slightly (as a manager, I know perfectly well that the bars move, which means I can pry it out of my own managers when the bars affecting me move). It required some explanation, but now I know what counted as next-level. And I managed to quickly squelch my reaction of "oh shit, I'd better not take that vacation if I want to hold on and get this rating again", because that is no bueno and also a trap. My new plan is to take the vacation, clear my head, get the rating ANYWAY and consider floating a promotion packet in the fall. Things are changing (new definition of tech-manager levels probably going into effect, plus unknown process changes) so it'll be a guinea-pig cycle where nobody quite knows what's going on anyway.

i love Fluevogs so much. i've been lucky with sales, but i feel like even without sales they have genuine value in that they last and last.

The sandals look lovely but the price tag makes me blink, hard. But as you say if you get a decade of wear out of them it's not such a bad thing.

Congrats on the performance review and good luck with the promotion package.
