Fragmented Thursday

Did you know that if you hit enter while writing a post, it publishes? That sucks! So if you stopped by and saw a post title "Screw the Rules"- I wasn't being the cool rebel radical that I wish I was, it was simply premature publication!

As I was saying, screw the rules... I usually do Friday Fragments, but I have too much going through my head today... so Thursday Fragments, it is...

***I spent the morning running from a mad man. Well, not me, personally, or anyone else, really, but there was a murderer on the loose in my community. He had been running from the authorities since 4am.

Many of the schools closed. I said a quick prayer that my kid's school would NOT be cancelled- (oh yeah, and that they would catch the guy, of course.) My kids' school was on "lock down". My gym was right in the middle of all of it! I considered not going since I was a little uneasy about leaving Beebs in the daycare (which is visible as you walk into the community center and it was not on lock down), but I had to work out, man- priorities- I only have 10 days left until the damn beach!!!

Luckily, they caught Marcus 'Butterman' Powell at about 11AM without incident. Yes, his nickname is 'Butterman'- I think he may have killed the guy that gave him that nickname.

*** Is anyone else having an issue with Google Analytics or do I REALLY suck that much!!! I mean, I know I haven't been whipping out Pulitzer quality stuff here, but GA is saying 5 visits in the last 2 days- that can't be right, right?

And why has blogging made me such a damn narcissist? I know people have lives- kids to take care of, Twilight books to read, Cookbooks to write- whatever. Why is it that I take it personally when people don't want to read the silly shit I write... I didn't start off like that- blogging has created a greedy, reader hungry, comment whore!!!

I guess I just want to make sure I haven't stepped over the line every once in a while- in this tightrope walk pathetic excuse of a blog, I have. I know the politics and religion freak people out. It freaks me out, but if it's on my mind, it's on my blog. However, if you stop back in the next day, chances are pretty good that Sybil will have turned into a sweet doting mom, you just never know!

*** I was tagged (no, I really wasn't, I just really thought it was a fun idea and begged her to let me join in on the fun) by Cheryl at The Daily Blonde.

Find a safe quiet place free of significant others, nosey meme makers, priests, nuns, all things religious and men in general. (If you're a guy just reverse this process to male and tell us about your wallet, tool box, briefcase or metro sexual accessory.)
1. Dump the contents of your handbag in a pile
2. Take a photo of your handbag and the contents
3. Be brave and explain to your fellow bloggers what lurks inside the handbag.
4. Tag others who might want to embarrass themselves
5. Answer these questions:
Describe the contents of your handbag.
What's the most important thing in your handbag?
What's the most embarrassing thing in your handbag?
What's the smallest thing in your handbag?Is there anything illegal in your handbag?

Take a look inside my soul purse...

It is the clown car of purses! I shove far too much crap in it and have NEVER been able to buckle that clasp (except today when all of the contents were laying of the floor- I didn't even know it worked!!!)
There is really a bunch of useless shit in my purse. When I was 12, my mom brought me to a baby shower for one of my Aunts. One of the games was a scavenger hunt from your purse. For some reason, ever since then, I value my worth in whether I could check off everything on that scavenger hunt list- I know, I'm totally demented.

Coupons that I ALWAYS forget to use

TONS of receipts

Pictures of my nieces and nephews that my sister gives me (she has their pics taken every 6 months or so... what am I going to do with them? So I shove them in the handbag from hell!)

sunglasses (mine and Beeb's), ipod, cell phone

Sucker and candy for emergency breakdown bribery while shopping

Crayons for emergency breakdown bribery at restaurants (that don't have crayons)

20 Moist towelettes that I stole was given from a local BBQ restaurant because they're great to have. I also have bug repellent wipes for the 15 soccer games a week we have- very handy!

Some pills my dealer mom gave me during my father in law's wake (about 6 months ago) because I hadn't slept for a while.

Headbands, rubber band, hair bows- Beebs will not keep her hair up!!!

A bobby pin, a safety pin, emery boards, and band-aids ( these were all on the 'list')

Gum and Brush ups- you know my obsession with teeth!

A bag o' medicine- Tums, Pepto, aspirin, Aleve

The most important thing is my cell phone and my lip gloss- I'm superficial , that way!

The most embarrassing thing: that would be the Men's Speed Stick. I had to go to my Step dad's mom's funeral about 8 months ago and my sister and I drove an hour drive together to the middle of nowhere for the funeral. I wore a sweater and the sun was beating down on me the whole drive. I was sweating like a stout pig and got a sniff and about shit- I had forgotten to put on deodorant that morning! The only place was a "Hucks" in East wegepeejie- I paid $5.89 for that Men's Speed Stick and it saved my life that day- I figured it was a good idea to just keep it in there in case of emergency!

The smallest would be my wedding band. Last Christmas, my husband had an eternity band added onto my engagement ring and we just nixed the wedding band it's still in the bottom of my purse (I had no idea until, I emptied it out!)

I think those pills my mom gave me are legal, but I couldn't be 100% sure.

I've been reading for a while now, but I must say- you crack me up! I have 5 kids, and my oldest routinely tells me "you are not really like a mom". I swear, I have random thoughts, I am not Martha Stewart, and I went back to law school, willing to suffer 4 years of hell, just to get out of this domestic engineering profession I somehow got sucked into. Enjoyable sure, but not forever. Keep up the good work. :)

Honeybell said...

Awww, and my comment on the mistake post was funny . . .

You said something about narcissism?

jill jill bo bill said...

10 comments on an accidental post and you think no one loves you?!

That was so funny! I am thinking right now when the last time I cleaned out my purse....not a good thing. LOL about the illegal pills your mom dealt you.

Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

Good to hear "Butterman" was caught.

Okay, I am with Jill. A accidental post gets 10 comments and you think no love? I am gonna start signing off

I love you Tenakim, Amy

P.S. I think I will steal the purse thing that was cool.

because I said so said...

your purse looks suspiciously like MY purse (great minds...) my contents are slightly different....

where did you purchase your 'bag'

The Mom said...

Stop reading GA, that stuff will eat you alive!

Love your purse LOL!! I did a post on this a while back and I had gum, keys and a couple of credit cards oh and about 3 dozen receipts. BORING.

I just made TDB's new header for when she swaps blogs! ;)

Glad they got that murderer, scary shit!

I've prematurely epostulated before too, happens to the best of us!

KimandCo said...

I carry the smallest purse possible to avoid having it full of sh*it. But you know what? That still doesn't work!

Patrice said...

lol i'm sure that GA is mistaken! I checked mine, and it seems right.. so I don't know what to tell you!

Cute purse! I saw this on the Daily Blonde, too, and thought it looked really fun!!

Dorsey said...

You forgot to make other friends empty their purses..HA! Half the fun of displaying something so crazed from your own life is putting others on the line too, right? HA!

I saw the other post and wondered if it might be something like that. Can't count the number of times I did that and had to go back and edit [finish] the post.

Well, I'm just going to take this moment to stroke your ego then...I LOVE seeing that you have a new post and can't WAIT to read it!! I think if we ever met in person we'd be dangerous (to nearby bars and cute toushied men). I tip my glass to you gal! Rock on!!

Cheryl said...

OK, I want your purse. You can keep what's inside of it. THAT is one great purse!!!!! ;-)

Glad they caught the butterball...butterman...whatever the heck the bad guys name is!

Eudae-mamia said...

"premature publication" - I cannot be the only word perv who got a giggle from that?

And seriously, I wrote today what I thought was a pretty good post, to only get 6 comments. 10 frickin' comments for just breathing!!?

I'd dump you if I didn't totally love your style.


DJane said...

So I am new to your blog... Already love it! Love the purse, it is like mine except yours is pink when mine is read. Plus mine is a little larger... I can't believe you fit all that stuff in there!

Linda S said...

Sorry, I love Screw the Rules!!! As my kids would say, "that was epic"!!

Love your bag. I'm going on record tomorrow with my bag of shame...

Soulfully Blonde said...

TAG! You're it!

Deb said...

I just switched my old ripped up purse today to a brand new one! Bummer, I should have taken a picture. There was so much crap in it.

Btw - your purse is so cute!

Tena said...

so funny you said that about your purse, because the second I saw the size and than all that was in it, I was certain it must have some hidden bottom to it or something. Sure does carry a lot of stuff!!I was tagged for this as well, and I have to wait till the day i go out and actually use a purse, which is only when I go out with the girls, lol
Glad they caught Butterman!!

Sabrae said...

Well since you say you are a (and i quote) "a greedy, reader hungry, comment whore!!!"
I just had to leave you a comment! lol your purse looks just about like mine (on the inside that is) I love your friggin blog!!! You go girl for getting it all out there!

Brittany said...

How does all that even fit in your purse?

And scrap GA for statcounter, love it SO MUCH MORE!

Legal Diva said...

Tag you are IT!

Jen said...

I saw that post and it cracked me up. I thought, wow, that Tena sure has gone mad, but I love her creativity. Oh well...

That purse is insane! I've never seen so much in one smallish purse in my life.

I totally get you on the comment thing. The more I get, the more I want. I wonder if bloggers like Dooce and that Pioneer lady ever get sick of the comments. I doubt it. Their whores like the rest of us.

Tina said...

you do have alot of stuff in your bag dont you lol. the bag is so hot though!

Tiffany said...

Sorry I haven't commented. I was too busy reading my Twilight books. LOL And I'm not lying either. haha
