  2. HANDBAG QUESTION OF THE DAY: Have you ever gone food shopping, pulled an old shopping list from the purse and proceed to shop? Sadly I have done this, the whole time wondering didn't I just get this, are we really out of this already....

  4. QUOTE (Janie @ Dec 18 2010, 01:59 PM)QUOTE (Pags @ Dec 18 2010, 07:28 AM) So my wife is browsing the on-line stores looking at purses when she comments on what she doesn't like about her own. "I really like my purse, but the one thing I can't stand about it is that everything falls to the bottom". And I'm like... "Wait a minute. I'm no expert on purses (a good thing), but let's talk basic physics here - like gravity. Wouldn't the contents of ANY purse FALL TO THE BOTTOM??" And she looks at me and says, "Oh you're a man, you wouldn't understand." What the hell happens in these purses, anyway? But... everything does fall right to the bottom. I personally like bags with multiple compartments. At first, I can never remember where I stored what but after a while, it becomes second nature and I can find things in a snap. My favorite bags for the last few years have been diaper bags. Really. They have larger compartments and are a good size to store everything. Although, we're still at that stage where I have to have a few diapers and wipes on hand but still, I have a perfect spot for my wallet, my cell, my camera... everything is tucked away in it's own little spot. I've had a few bags but my favorite is the very durable black Coach travel laptop/messenger/diaper bag. So the thing is meant for multiple purposes anyway. I've come to love messenger bags. They aren't the most feminine but they are so practical. Of course I use a different purse when going out with the girlfriends or something. Ok, I've rambled on long enough about my frickin' bag. I soooooo miss a diaper bag! Never needed a purse had everything in it's spot. Sadly using a diaper bag now is out of the question with the youngest at 5...BUT boy do I miss it!!!!

Remember all the light and energy and cosmic forces and death and destruction that poured out of it? Same thing happens when a guy opens a woman's purse. Don't do that. Greatest explaination EVER!!!!!!! ....Now who want to get me my purse....

  11. QUOTE (owlswing @ Mar 22 2007, 05:37 PM)Alright ladies, it's that time of year once again!!! I think we need to be reminded of a few things. So my sisters, PLEASE, raise your big toes and repeat after me below... The Open Toed Shoe Pledge As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules when wearing sandals and other open-toe shoes: I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps. I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free. I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe. I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow. I will shave the hairs off my big toe. I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker, mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there. If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it. I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. Scholl's if my feet need him. I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizees. This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle. I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages. I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look good. I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them. I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once per season and have a real pedicure (they are about $15 or 20 and worth EVERY penny). I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals. And this I promise as a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood!!! Seems we have ventured off track here... Since I still LOVE my flip flops and my toes SCREAM to be free as soon spring rolls around...I repeat my pledge!!! I will add due to the economy...the PEDI-EGG BEST new invention for open shoe wearers!!! Buy the two pack and share with your favorite sister!!!! NOW GET OUT THERE AND SHOW THOSE FEET OFF MY SEXY SISTERS!!!!!
  12. QUOTE (sullysue @ Mar 29 2010, 04:18 PM) QUOTE (Mara @ Mar 29 2010, 03:49 PM) HOW IN THE HELL ARE YOU GUYS MANAGING THIS????? I want to quit - I really do - and I only smoke about 1/2 pack/day to start with! I managed about 9 hours a few weeks back before caving. I really don't want to do Chantix - expensive as hell copay, for one, plus I know too many recidivists. Part of it, I know, is just breaking associations. Like not smoking while driving, for one. Holy crap, Mara. That is me, to a T. I know I could quit. I mean, hell, I can make it all day at work without one. No problem. Those triggers KILL me! A pack lasts me the good part of a week. But, I just can't seem to let go. I'm not ready. I don't think I could if I tried. I'd only end up feeling like a loser for not being able to accomplish it. And, Chantix was a nightmare for me. Literally. And, I had moments where I was really close to passing out. Not good. It took me 2 1/2 years to get to the point I am today! Do the math...that is a lot of days of trying and failing and trying and failing and...well you get the point! What finally did it...I don't know about where you live but around they have these commercials that graphically show the effects of smoking. That my girlfriend reached over 2 years quit, I still remembered one of her attempts from 12 years prior and my oldest daughter was routing for me!!! You NEED to be ready and no matter how good that drag makes you feel, that breath of fresh air feels so much better!!!! Can I also tell you that I would have cronic bronchitis and some form of pneumonia at least 2 times a year...HAVE NOT had either in over a year!!!!!
  13. QUOTE (GeddyRulz @ Mar 28 2010, 11:25 PM) My quit date was 2/6/2010 10:00:00 PM. Smoke-free for 50 days, 2 hours, 15 minutes. 1152 cigarettes not smoked. $410.55 and 8 days, 19 hours of my life saved. Can you believe it? I would've smoked 1152 cigarettes already, just since I quit? Gross!!!!!!!!!! Excellent!!!!! Keep it up - take deep breaths when an urge comes on - keep taking them until it passes. I still do it....410 days later! Approx 4110 Cigs not smoked and are you ready...... $2,562.50 saved!!!! Oh and the $ per pack has increased by $1.50 since I quit!!!! Saving an add'l $615.00 to total $3,177.50 Yes I have put most of it in the bank!!!! Some went towards the Chantix co pay at first the rest went towards family vacations/getaways/fun days!!!!
  14. QUOTE (sullysue @ Mar 18 2010, 04:27 PM)QUOTE (Ya_Big_Tree @ Mar 18 2010, 10:39 AM) I like low cut with a lil flare. Skinny jeans are nice I just hate how they bunch up around my ankles even when I get the right length, which is why I like a lil bit of flare. But I do like the shape my legs get in skinny jeans. This is me exactly. May fav jeans are my American Eagle boyfriend cut jeans, which I don't think they make anymore. They're low-rise with a good flair and nice and roomy, but not dumpy looking. I've had them so long, they have holes where the rivets are at the pockets, so I can't wear them in public, 'cause people can see my knickers through the holes. I wasn't aware of this until I wore them one Friday to work! Quick & stylish fix for those rips...I repeat stylish!!!! Get some white thread and just sew across the fray in the opposite direction. ex: is the fray is left to right, sew up & down or visa versa! I have actually seen jeans in store with the frays done this way...I was amazed. I could do that at home with my old ones and not spend any money and wear my fav house jeans out and about again! As far as those straight leg skinny jeans...I had enough of those in the 80's with the scrunchy socks or leg warmers I don't need to go down that route again. I"ll leave those for the teens of the times! I am still a simple Jeans girl, my favorite are Levis with a pair of flip flops. I'm just happy if jeans are long enough - nothing is worse than short jeans!

When Pags saw how it worked all he could say "why aren't they all like this it would have made being a teenager so much easier! Definitely! When I saw that easy access flap come down for the first time, I was in utter amazement. Totally astonished. Best invention since sliced bread right!
