"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Socks, Glorious Socks

I think y'all know by now how much I love funky socks. Well, right now Kym is hosting an exchange that feeds this addiction - the Sock It To Me Winter 2010 edition. Kym says, "The complete history of how I came up with Sock It to Me is here, but in short:

It's The Great Sock-It-to-Me Exchange. The warmth you feel from your bloggy support is a warm and fuzzy pair of snuggly socks. Take the support with you for a trip to the stirrups. Wear them when you're chasing around your battle-won little person. Put them on when you have something to celebrate or when you need a hug. Wear them as a physical reminder of all the people inside your computer who you know care for and are thinking of you."

See, this is perfect because you get something fun and silly and get to feel good all at the same time. I want all my wonderful bloggy friends to participate so I've put together a list of fun sites with funky socks (if you know of any other sites, list them in the comments and I will add them to the list). See, now you have no excuse....bwahahahahaha.

  1. Solmate Socks - those incredibly cool matched yet mismatched socks above are an older pair of socks from there
  2. Sock Dreams - you can find the Moo Toe socks here and they are so, so wrong but funny
  3. Foot Traffic - just click on the sock or toe sock links on the left

This is my first time participating and I'm SOOOOO excited! I absolutely LOVE socks. However, I wear flip flops 365 days a year outside of the house and my mom actually found a pair of toeless socks for me to wear with my flip flops! How cool is that??!! I'm really looking forward to this! Thanks for the great list of places to get those socks!
