Seeing that I'm enormously grouchy today brought on by being blown off last night by my Brazilian Mistress of Pain and the impending arrival of Medusa, I have a short one for all of you today. This is better than me ranting about something insignificant just to vent my rage.
I stole this idea from Rachel over at Party of One.
Ladies, empty your purses.....Gentlemen, your pockets. Show me what ya got!
I ran downstairs to an unused office and took this picture. This is a catalog of all my shit:
Prada Bag - gift from Mom
Wallet - I've had it forever and there is at least $50 of change in the pocket part. It weighs a ton!
iPod - Constant companion.
Wetnaps - I have no idea why they're in there
Gum: Usually there is more than one pack. I'm low.
Tube of lip plumper: Makes me look like I got my lips stuck in a vacuum and tastes terrible. It's also super sticky and I always get my hair caught in it.
Burts Bee's chap stick: I live in New England. Chapped lips are a year round problem.
Matchbook: From a wedding 2 years ago. The matches barely work.
Pens: Currently, I only have 3. I can promise you that by the end of the day I'll have at least 4 more. I tend to "steal" pens from places I go.
Hairbrush: For emergency "do" repair.
Business Card Holder
Checkbook: Why I have this, I have no idea. I use my credit/debit card for everything and I can't remember the last time I wrote a check
Address Book: I've had 4 Palm Pilots and they all crapped out on me. I write it all on paper now.
Sunglasses: Stole these sweet Oakleys from Big K. I broke mine.
Broken Eyeliner pencil
Kiwi Lip Gloss: So yummy
Rock that says "Thank you": A woman I worked with gave it to me. I have no idea why I still have it.
Big Round Rock: I got this at a seminar on Child Abuse when I was still in college. The rocks are gathered on the beaches of the Cape and given to child abuse victims to give them power. I love it because it fits in my hand perfectly and makes me feel calm. Also, when someone asks me "Why the fuck is your purse so heavy. Do you have rocks in it" I can answer, "Why yes, I do!"
Cap from a Bud Light bottle: Left over from tailgating at the Pats game on Monday. (Don't clean out my purse that much)
Listerine Strips: I drink lots of coffee and quite often catch a case of dragon breath. These work in a pinch.
Pocket Micro Cruizer Scan Disk Storage Device: You never know when you're gonna have to upload a file (I'm such a geek)
Dirty Chocolate Lollipop: Yes, I am currently schlepping around a chocolate lollipop in the shape of a vagina. Surfer Dude gave it to me as a joke and I haven't done anything with it yet. I'm having dinner with friends on Saturday so it will be a fun conversation piece. I can't bring myself to eat it.
I also have a few fem. products, but I thought those would be in bad taste to photograph. I did have a remote control egg vibrator, but the batteries died. I am currently "without sex toy".
Alright, I've showed you mine, you show me yours. You've all been mime. Get on it!
