Question...

birkenstocks make me happy. i like when i see people wearing them. last night at dinner i saw a girl wearing a pair and it reminded me of how much i love them. and it also made me sad because i just threw away my old ones. i really want some for my birthday {its on tuesday!}. but, question...are birkenstocks super coo or weirdo hippy?

They are cool because they are so not cool. Does that make sense? The counterculture, hippie-ness is what makes them cool.

I've never owned birkenstocks, but I say if you love them, they are cool!

I fell in love with birkenstocks last summer when I bought a pair in Germany at the GROCERY STORE. How's that for cool? They were 19 euro, was all. I lived in them last summer and will be resurrecting them from my closet as soon as it stops SNOWING :)

Oh dear. It's not 1994 again, is it? If I have to go back to high school, I'll cry.
