Shoe Fair is something that tends to be a pretty precarious place for me... I am a shoe addict (though I tend to only ever come back to one pair on a regular basis, which I know is bad), my family say that I am a bit like the SL version of Imelda Marcos as I have around 2000 pairs of shoes... Yet it draws me in, I cannot help it, I hear Shoe Fair calling me "Rudh, Rudh, Come buy some shoes Rudh"... Well this year was gonna be different I had set myself a limit of a maximum of 5 pairs!
I went in and picked up LOTS and LOTS of Demos, before pulling myself away back to our build platform to spend TWO WHOLE HOURS umming and awwing over which ones I wanted... In the end I chose only TWO PAIRS (as I had bought one pair already - it was love at first site)... THREE PAIRS OUT OF THE HUNDRED OR SO DEMOS I GRABBED... Pretty good huh??
Then I needed a set plan to make sure I went to the stores I was buying from and those stores ONLY... So, I having a moment of smartness on my previous visit had snapped a photo of the fair map, and I got out my colouring crayons and started to draw all over it...
Colour codes were necessary!Orange was used for my route from the initial landing point to the first store I was heading back to, SLink... From there though I had a long walk following either the Blue or Yellow routes over 2 Sim Crossings, it looked to be a bit laggy walking all that way! Then I thought AH HA, I'll TP from one store to the other using the world map, hence the Purple Dots, but that didn't work either as there was a landing point in the central point near the fountain, and then the Pink route was created a simple TP to the central fountain on the Osmium Sim and then a quick walk around the corner to store 63, NX-Nardcotix.
I love all the shoes I bought, but man the Military-esque precision planning that went into that trip was tiring... I salute you shoe fair vendors and organisers, but now it's time for a nap hehe!
