    I don't care if you think they're "cute." I don't care if they're comfortable. Uggs will always look like lumps of lamb some Chinese kid sewed up. It's just true.

    I believe everything happens for a reason. All the bad things, all the torture, the unfairness, the sadness, the insanity. Without them, we would be strangers to ourselves.
