My Handbag hasn’t got a Leak yet…

Really now, there is something for everyone nowadays, and that includes the lovers of handbags… including me!!
I just got to reading earlier this morning and low and behold what article popped into my face.. Yes, a handbag that serves/ holds your favorite beverage…
Not like you think though… it has a built-in thingy that holds your beverage of choice… and to be honest, okay, if you don’t want others to know that you are taking a nip of a certain beverage, but otherwise I am not tooooo convinced of its functionality, and a spigot on the side of the bag is not my idea of a good looking hand bag nor of cleanliness either. Or am I just out of it when it comes to fashion statements???

Plus, a small bottle of water or the sorts is just as good and just imagine, you fill your handbag up with a beverage and the container springs a leak… Then what!!! Scream or cry or maybe even both, if you’ve got some precious things in your handbag…..

My eyes are watering already with that thought… or even worse my Mascara is running down my face at this thought…. Everything is ruined, but then to prevent this I need the super duper waterproof bag in a bag to prevent the worst case scenario….

But, you never know… Invited to a party or out with friends … You got it!! Beverages are on hand and if a group of you have the same sort of handbags then…. Hey, let’s have a party!!! Drinks galore!!! I mean really, I always have a couple of cups in my hand bag for such occasions; should I run into a friend with that sort of handbag. I bet you have cups in your handbag, too???

Though I must be honest here and say that none of my friends have such handbags… Why they don’t I cannot say… Sorry
A somewhat concerning thought for me is while I am out and about and may have a bit of red wine left over from last evening in my bag( please don’t tell anyone my secret here) and I accidently catch the spigot on my clothing …. Then a red wine stain and how do I explain that at work and hope that everyone believes me???? Any answers???
Plus, how do I clean this beverage container thingy handbag?? I feel really perplexed with such thoughts.. Or who cares …

Another thought is how much does such a handbag cost and where can I buy one, should I ever what one??? And does it have a built in cooling system for those hot days in the summer or does it keep my beverages warm in the winter and what does it weigh…. These questions need to be answered, don’t they and I bet you thought the same as I was thinking, but just afraid to ask those questions… Don’t be, because no question is too dumb, if you don’t know the answer…

Though, should any of you out there own such a handbag, please do let us all know and maybe even send us a picture of you using it… Thanks, we are all curious, too!

Enjoy you handbag no matter what style it is….

Christmas is over….

Well Christmas is over and now we are counting the days until the New Year 2017…. My how time fly’s!

Though Christmas is not that far in the past and so many people seem not to gotten the present they hoped for and want to return it to where it was purchased and exchange it for something else that they like… this seems like a normal thing with lots of people, but I must be lucky because I am always happy with what I receive and never want to return anything that I get.

And now there are the over abundance of tips as to what to do with the leftovers from Christmas dinner and how to store all the food properly, as if it is something new all these food hacks (ideas/tips) nothing has changed, just the design of the plates the food is served on and as for storing the food, common sense I hope still exists and we know what to do.

Though like every year now there are the tips on how to lose those extra Christmas pounds in time for New Years Eve, so you can wear that new little outfit…. I think I’ll skip that and wait and enjoy myself instead of worrying… I feel better already!
Nothing worse than not being able to enjoy yourself…. Everyone around you is eating and drinking something, and there you are saying” Sorry, no thanks. I am on a diet until 31 December”… Just image the comment or the facial expression of the person you say that too…. They will/would probably think you’re nuts!!

Sorry got a bit sidetracked here. I think I’ll just put my feet-up and take it easy and enjoy myself and forget about all the food hacks,diets,etc….

Enjoy yourself too….Christmas is over only once a Year!

Sorry No Selfie Today

It was brought to my attention the other day that young people take at least 30 “selfies” of themselves a day. Where do they find the time???

It got me thinking about selfies and if took 30 of myself in a day …. How would I manage?

So, I guess the first one would be when I get-up in the morning….. You probably would have a heart attack if you saw me, so I guess I won’t post one of me getting-up…. Thank goodness you say!!

Selfie number 2: Just showered, wet hair in my old bathrobe and drinking a cup of coffee… Now that is a picture to share with the world…Or???

Selfie number 3: Brushing my teeth and putting my make-up on all at the same time… Now you say: “that is a picture I want to see”!

Selfie number 4: Me doing the dishes before going to work. I bet you never saw anyone doing that before? Or is there someone at your house who does that too?

Selfie number 5: Standing at the bus stop…. Now that could be an action packed photo. I did a background check, my hair is perfect and I look good until the wind comes along right when the picture is being taken…. Who cares … post it anyway! I am at the bus stop

Selfie number 6: (To be honest I am getting tired of taking selfies and I am only at picture number 6) But the day is young and “Selfies” will make my day better…. Hopefully???

Selfie number 7: forgot to take number 6 … we’ll just skip one! Now here I am waiting for the commuter train on the platform with all the other happy commuters…. Don’t you feel that this is a must take picture to show everyone?? I do

Selfie number 8: at the office… in my office wow… This is a cool place a must picture!!! Of course with me in it…

Selfie number 9: Me by the coffee machine at work… Aren’t you impressed??

Selfie number 10: can’t take it, big boss says no!! Party pooper

Selfie number 11: no group picture either. Everyone in the office is too busy to stop for a group Selfie…. Where is the fun here?? This Selfie stuff is turning into a full time job and I am not sure if I have time to do my job now or should I be taking Selfies

Selfie number 12: Me eating my peanut butter and jelly sandwich at my desk…. Now that is something to write home about!

Selfie number 13: Leaving the office for the day… How do you like me waving at you?? Aren’t I just full of original ideas for my Selfies???

Selfie number 14: Me getting a shopping trolley at the grocery store… I bet you never thought that my life was so exciting? Did you????

Selfie number 15: A gallon of milk in my hand… you never knew that was what a gallon of milk looked like before??? Well, if you didn’t now you know.

Selfie number 16- 29: requires too much energy on my part and the battery is getting low on my Smartphone.

Selfie number 30: in the kitchen again… where I was this morning only now making dinner…. I hope everyone is hungry and likes what I am cooking?

Sorry no more selfies today!

I Have To Ask My Bra Today…..

The world is changing and isn’t as I imagined it might be and now there’s some mention of a bra that sends signals to prevent me from eating chocolate or other such great stuff when I am feeling a tad stressed…. Where’s all the fun in life going …. Cheers!!

I do not what to wear a bra with some electronic equipment built into it and it senses that “oh dear… my wearer seems to be getting in a tizzy.” Now bra send a signal to the wearer warning her that she should under no circumstances get the idea to eat chocolate or junk food…. Party pooper!!

What do I do now?? I can’t let my bra get the best of me and control my life. I am in charge here and not my bra!! Plus what would happen if I ignored those signals and went to the store and bought myself 2 candy bars and ate them both…. Anyone know the answer? I sure don’t!! But I would feel better after eating the chocolate and who cares what my bra thinks!!

I am sure there is some scientific nonsense behind the system but I wonder how do you wash such bras in the washing machine and are the bras nice looking or are they so ugly looking that if you were seen in your bra the guy looking at you would get a heart attack because the bra is so ugly.. Or what sort of signal does the bra send off when you’re feeling in the mood?? Will the bra blow a fuse and short circuit? I don’t want to get electrocuted by my own bra just because I am in the mood… The dangers of wearing a bra seem to be lurking everywhere!

A further thought about these bras is are they guaranteed, because I am sure they would cost more than $10.00 and I wouldn’t want to buy one and after a short time the electronic system breaks down… Then what?? How will I know when I need my chocolate bar, because the signal isn’t being sent from my bra? Plus how heavy are those bras and are they figure shaped and not with ugly bulges appearing where they shouldn’t be.

There I am out with friends and we are sitting in a bar and a guy comes over and says to me.. “Ah I can see you are wearing one of those sensor bras, because of the way you look there”. Now what would my bra tell me… Punch the guy or remain cool??? Could the bra answer that question based on its sensors??? I want facts here no BS

A really scary thought is what happens if the batteries are running low and you can’t recharge them or are there bra recharger stations in the ladies rooms that you can use to recharge your bra for only $1.50 a minute…. I feel saved now; I wouldn’t want to be out and about and then be told by the sensors in my bra that the batteries are losing their charge… I could scream!!!

Though I will try to manage my life as I have been for the last….. years; just wearing normal bras without sensors and using my brain to tell me whether or not I should eat some chocolate or not.

Gals enjoy your life & chocolate bar(s) because we only live once!

I Forgot Your Name Today

I forgot your name .. that seems to happen to all of us sooner or later, but we never seem to pay much attention to it and take it in stride or say that comes with age… Well, thank heavens that it doesn’t come only with age !!! My life is saved…. Thank you scientist

It seems that nowadays that our brain has been transformed into some sort of computer and that when it is consolidating its files we seem to forget other people’s names.. Now that is something… Isn’t it? I always thought my brain was you know like you learned in school this mass inside your skull but who am I to know and since my brain has a couple of years wear and tear I guess it works differently than the newer models of brains out there?

They say it takes time to remember things and once it is stored in the name section of your brain … well then you are on the way to success and if you’re having a tad of problems on that day then please do try and avoid meeting too many new people. I guess the scientists know what they are doing but do they know the names of their colleagues and if not then what do they do? Also it mentions that they studied snails and I must complain here because my brain cannot be compared to a snail and do snails actually have a brain?? Any biologist reading this?

But the whole problem of forgetting names can be easily solved and be the hit of your next party. You’re guessing or thinking … what the heck is she talking about, well it’s simple.

The next time you plan a party and invite a bunch of people who don’t know each other; then all you have to do is buy those labels that say “ Hello” or “My name” and then the person can print their name in the space and then stick the label onto what they are wearing and there you go…. No more forgetting people’s names and after a bit everyone can remove the labels and then you can play a guessing game of who’s who and then you can really see who remembered who is who. Of course after memorizing the names and playing the game the winner should get a prize for their outstanding ability to remember everyone’s name…. I would probably lose here but it could be fun with the right group of people.

So the next time you are invited to a party don’t forget your name tag otherwise you could hear…. What did you say your name was? I forgot it

Time & Memories – 2

As I am feeling a bit in the mood to reminisce about the times in my childhood; I was also then reminded of the new colored Television set. Now that was a moving experience for many I am sure.

We had a small black and white TV which sat on a table in our living room and on another table there was the record player. a gigantic thing but it was called portable. What was portable about it I really couldn’t tell you. My parents loved their records and would listen to them for hours and if I was lucky I could listen too one of mine for 30 minutes at the most. That seemed unfair to me but I had no other choice until the day came when my parents proudly announced that we were getting a new TV and record player all in one.

Remember the kind where you could lift the top up and see the record player and on the other side was the TV set ( the home entertainment system of yesteryear)Though I know it had another name but what it was I cannot remember .

Again my mom made a fuss about this too. Though the good thing was, was that I was getting the portable record player for my bedroom( the thing took-up a lot of space in my small room, but I had a record player for adults and could now play my collection of 5-45’s and 2 LP’s. I was in heaven and so were my friends too because we could listen to our records for hours and have time to dream. Wow – that was life!

The new “colored TV” was delivered while I was at school and so when I got home that day my mom was already enjoying the new TV & record player console. I was beside myself when I saw it.

Just imagine solid wood ( not plastic like now -a- days)and it must of weighed about a ton and a nuclear explosion wouldn’t have even put a dent it because that was a solid piece of furniture that was built to last forever.

The parts were not all plastic either. A real glass TV screen which had to warm-up a bit before you got a good picture and there was a knob that you could turn to change the channel or a knob for the volume.(remember those were the times before remote controls)And guess who was in charge of getting-up to change the channel or volume when I was watching TV with my parents? You guessed right – me!

I was not allowed to turn the TV on when my parents weren’t there or else- that would be like committing a major crime, because you never know what could happen. (That was my mom’s motto) Plus I didn’t stand a chance to watch TV when they weren’t around because the whole TV and wood casing would retain the warmth and you got it – bingo caught watching TV even when I had turned it off 5 minutes before they came into the house. Believe me that was no fun – 1 week no TV as punishment for sneaking a chance to watch TV when they weren’t around.
Hey that’s life and it was worth every minute to be alone in the living room and to watch color TV!

Though this entertainment system took on a dimension of it’s own in the eyes of my parents and it (TV & record player)had to be welcomed into the world, so that meant a cocktail party and have friends over and take time to look at our new addition.
All my parents friends showed up and the men looked at the technical aspects of such a device while the women at the same time discussed the decorative aspects of this and at the same time listening to records being played on the wonderful record player. Everyone was happy and had time to enjoy life though my happiness that evening was ended abruptly when I had to go to bed because I wasn’t allowed to stay up so late.

That TV & record player supplied us with many hours & years of happiness giving us time to be together and share the company of one another.

Enjoy the company of each other this gives you a fond memory that will be cherished for sometime.
