first of all , Monika, you darling, are the queen of procrastination!!!!!! and i love it! why didnt you and i share our love of crazy socks in EDU? we really should have. i definetly have over 40 pair of socks...i really should count one of these days...and none of them are plain. i've got monkeys, sparkles, monkeys WITH sparkles...the list could go on and on. My socks for today? White with pumpkins, they match my pumpkin flannel pants my Mom sent me for my birthday (she sent me both the pants and the socks) (also, my birthday is on Hallowe'en...so that makes more of a connection to pumpkins and my birthday). IMHO though , Thriftys/Bluenotes definetly have the best socks.
