Christmas is Tight This Year

Date: 2008-12-19, 6:24PM PST

My dear friends,

Somewhat embarrassing to admit, but Christmas is tight this year.

I will be making bedroom slippers for you all as gifts. Please let me know your sizes. You'll most likely agree that it's a splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I've included the instructions below.

How to make bedroom slippers:

* You need four maxi pads to make a pair.
* Two of them get laid out flat, for the foot part.
* The other two wrap around the toe area to form the top.
* Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot part.

Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is most asthetically appealing), etc.

These slippers are:

* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: (1.) Regular, (2.) Light and (3.) Get out the Sand Bags.

I've attached a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the nifty slippers for yourself....

Awaiting your response. It's crucial that I get the right size for each one of you. So please hurry I need to start them as soon as possible.


  1. I know a guy who ran out of clean socks and stole a couple of maxi pads from her sister to line his shoes. He says it's the most comfortable he's ever been while wearing shoes.

    I've made sure to never run out of clean undergarments, so I can't confirm his claim.

  2. LOL! I must admit that, had I seen someone wearing these things around the dorm, I might not have noticed right away what they were made from.

  3. Hahaha! I call that misguided creativity. :-)

  4. I wear a size 5 (but an 8 1/2 feels so good). And could I get mine with penguins please?

  5. Forget athlete's foot, do you have to worry about toxic shock with wearing these for too long?
