I might not be around much longer.

Couldn't include this description with my arresting artwork, something about the a href tag being broken. I didn't see it.

As I continue to dabble with Photoshop, I'll offer up even more glorious illustrations...at least until I'm no more.

FLIP FLOPS CAN BE KILLERS
Wearing trendy flip flops could kill you, according to new research.

The fashionable footwear - ideal for the beach in hot weather - are putting the lives of road users at risk.

Three in every four motorists have admitted they find it hard to drive in flip flops and road safety experts have warned that wearing the sandals in the car could be a lethal decision.

Researchers claim a flip flop, worn by millions, can easily get stuck under the pedals and cause a fatal accident, The Sun says.

Craig Martin, spokesman for Norwich Union who carried out the poll, told the newspaper: "Footwear such as flip flops are dangerous as the sole can get caught under a pedal.

"The absence of ankle support can lead to the foot slipping off the pedal altogether."

Leigh Purves, gossip columnist for the Daily Star, is among those to have had a close call while driving with designer flip flops.

She has told how, while travelling on the M1, her sandal got stuck under the brake pedal and she missed another car "by millimetres".

The Sun also says that German researchers revealed last year that 14 out of 25 pairs of flip flops they studied contained toxic chemicals known to lower sperm count in men and attack the liver, kidneys and reproductive organs.

Somehow I don’t see you at the beach/canyon/park/pool in a pair of heavy ‘Doc Martens’ type boots. But, you might want to play it extra safe and get a pair anyway. I see by your drawing that you have two pretty left feet. See if the store clerk will break up two pairs for you.

Anyhoo Laura, I wouldn’t worry. I think those athletes that wore flip-flops to the Whitehouse the other week are still alive.

"In the morning when you're rushing to get to school on time, you don't have to put your socks on." Now that's cutting it close.

Me, I could never get the hang of flip-flops, or thongs as we called them. I guess I tend to scuff my feet when I walk and I would catch the front lip of them on the ground, it would curl under and I would stub my toe. Ouch. I do enjoy throwing them around like a boomerang.

Laura, your artwork has inspired me. I think I will make a portrait of you using Photoshop as well. Maybe if its good enough you can print it out and put it on your refrigerator.

I hope you are around much longer. Much much. Don't pull a Mitch Hedberg on us, please.

Even though your site is not completely related I think it is a cool blog. I have read back through the archives and lots of people make some good points. Well I have been on-line forever it seems. I need to continue to plug away at web video hosting. If you have the energy swing by http://www.massinternetservices.com. I try to update my site weekly (most of the time)and maybe you will see something you like. I already grabbed your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Mint job!

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

I've got a site you might be interested in (mine is about acne ) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about acne related articles and subjects.
