I just want to say that it makes me proud how we all pulled together to aid Virex in his grand decision.  What a community feeling we've got going on here.

I think I just felt a tear stream down my cheek - no, not that cheek.

I am aquiver with anticipation for the review.

Somehow, my cheapo Target $3 Flip-Flops just don't seem so cool anymore.  :(

Well, if you guys are this excited, just imagine how I feel!

(By the way--I may be putting my old Wal-Mart specials up on eBay; let me know if you're interested.)

Hmmmm. . .  Could be, could be. . .

I'm gonna order some of these for OCB, to go along with his Nintendo controller belt:



He'll finally have a pair of his own flip-flops, but better yet, they'll have his name on them, so in case he forgets whose they are--"oh yeah, 'Scott.'  These must be mine."

Enjoy, Scotty!

Thanks!



 I got my belt by the way, I find myself playing with the buttons down there quite a bit and my coworkers are starting to wonder what I'm doing under my desk.  I shrug and say "Practicing Beating Super Macho Man"

I think I'm gonna leave that one alone, but I will say that I'm glad you're getting some use out of the stuff.

Looks like my VOTC figs will be arriving around the same time as Virex's flip-flops....

This thread has gotten thinking about footwear, and how!  I've seen people wearing flip flops while out on the town, and I've been getting envious.  I look down at my socks and shoes and feel prudish and layered.  Wow, it would feel so good to go free and easy with some 'flops.  The closest thing I have are some wal-mart cheapo "extreme sports" type of rubber footwear - fake surfing footwear I wear in mountain streams and such.
