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
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.
