I loathe white socks.  Why would you choose to wear a boring sock when so many awesome options exist?  I have a beyond extensive collection of fun socks; so much halloween-socks~7218258that I never have to wear white socks unless I’m at the gym (which isn’t that often these days anyway WHAT UP!)  My favorite kind of sock is the Halloween sock (obviously since it is my fave holiday) but Santa adorned socks are a very close second.  Cats, BBQ ribs, skull & crossbones, dice, Grateful Dead bears, ghosts, hearts, leprechauns, and various patterns all adorn a pair of my socks. 

The most unfortunate part of this collection is that socks wear out over time; especially the favorite ones I wear every chance I get.  So I am constantly looking to add to my collection, and this time of year is when I’m especially aggressive in my search as Halloween socks are plentiful. 

You may be wondering, does she coordinate her socks according to holidays (i.e. only wear my Christmas socks at Chchristmas-socks-300x300ristmas) and the answer is hell no.  Why would I only want to bring out my various smiley Santa socks but once a year??  It would be like only using my Christmas glasses as Christmas– crazy!  I do however retire a few pairs from the rotation every once in awhile just to give every pair a chance at equal foot time.  I’d say I have around 100 or so pairs of socks so that can get pretty difficult.  The other thing is the laundry factor… when I wash all my socks I will be “folding” them for a good 15 minutes.  But when I look down during the day and see a splash of color or a frosty snowman peeking out from my pants, it’s all worth it. 

Pet Peeve of the Day: When people ask me how my blog will help them be awesome.  NOT awesome.
