Random Musings Friday…

Happy Friday and happy long weekend as well.  I am looking forward to a nice long weekend of relaxing, getting my hair done, a pedicure, going to the Sex and the City movie with mom and SIL and watching the four Netflix movies I have sitting on the coffee table.  J has some crazy ideas about digging and pouring concrete footers for our new deck, but I’m going to do my best to put an end to that talk. 

On to more important matters…I received a new bag last night from Bag Borrow and Steal (I refuse to call it by the new name).  It’s dreamy and I’m totally in L-O-V-E.  Here she is…

Seriously…LOVE.  The last bag was only ok…I didn’t even bother to show it to you.  It ended up being really big and more of a pain in the ass than anything.  This one is the perfect size and has lots of pockets and a zipper…which makes me worry less on the subway that someone is stealing my wallet.  Plus it’s black and white…my fave combination.  I’m seriously considering keeping this one as my very own.  It’s probably an issue that a purse is making me so happy.  I might see a doctor about it.

Now…for this week’s randomness…

  • People on the bus are getting stranger and stranger.  Last week we had the staring woman.  This week, we had the close sitter.  The front of the bus has bench seating along the sides and opposite where I usually sit, there is enough room for three people.  On Wednesday, there was a woman sitting all the way to one side of the bench.  A man got on at the last stop and sat right next to her…leaving open space on the other side of him.  For the rest of the ride he proceeded to slowly creep closer.  By the time she got off, he was sitting right up against her.  God bless her for not getting up and hitting him with her purse and making a scene…the way I would have.  When I asked her about it the next day she said she didn’t want to be rude.  She’s way too nice!
  • My mom got a delivery of food to her house on Wednesday.  It was 98 degrees outside.  The UPS driver apparently didn’t feel like walking up to the door, so he left the box at the end of the driveway, in the blaring sun.  My grandfather discovered it hours later, but it was really heavy and he couldn’t carry it into the house.  So it sat in the sun some more.  By the time my mom arrived home, everything chocolate in the box was melted…to the consistency of soup.  She called the company to complain and ask them to replace the melted items.  They told her to put all the melted items into a pot, mix together and put them in the fridge to make one big, giant candy bar.  Now, these were not a lot of items of the same flavor.  They were all very different.  My mom was grossed out by the suggestion and is waiting for a call back from a supervisor. 
  • I think I have to stop reading gossip sites.  Every time I go to Superficial or Perez or D-listed I just get annoyed.  These people, who are mostly just famous for being famous, used to just slightly bug me, but are now making me truly angry.  If I saw Paris Hilton on the street I think I might throw something at her. 

That’s all the randomness I have for this week.  It’s lunch time and we are going to run out to get pedicures.  I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.  Any big plans for Memorial Day?


  1. That bag is GORGEOUS. I think I need to get in on this Bag Borrow or Steal fun! (What is the new name anyway?)

    And where has good old P.Hilton been lately? I feel like she’s kind of gone away and that is ok with me.

    I will always love Perez. Even if it is mostly complete crap on there.

  2. Melted chocolate is yummy… but not so much when you’re expecting it to be solid (and keep-able)….

  3. Hey…you know what would look so supercute with that bag? Those 2 necklaces you have. 😉 Hehehehe…Yes, I am COMPLETELY shameless.

    I love, love, love the purse and I really think you’re on to something here with this. By the time you get sick of it, it’s time to go back. Freaking genius.

    I’m so glad I’m back. I’ve really missed Random Musings Friday. There is so much goodness squeezed into one tiny space. Is there enough room for a picture from Fleet Week? I’m all drooly down here.

  4. CUTE BAG!!!! I love the colors, too. I’m obsessed with oversized bags, but it’s true. Sometimes they can be so cumbersome to carry around and then I can’t ever find anything I need.

    What the? The suggestion made over the phone to your mom is completely ridiculous. I had a Fresh Direct delivery when I lived alone in a fourth-floor walkup and I swear I thought the guy was going to have a heart attack by the time he made it up my steps. Needless to say I gave him a good tip and vowed never to do that again. But it was pretty convenient :) Hope she gets that mix-up squared away!

    Have a great, long weekend :)

  5. I really like that bag. I love black and white. What brand is it? I’m have purse issues. Like all mine suck and my friends make fun of them.

  6. I agree, lovely bag! I work at a consignment shop and sometimes get lucky when the goods come in. I buy one a month, on average. Love them:)

    You know, I haven’t ridden a bus since high school…but I would love to ride yours for a day. I can only imagine the excitement. Call me sheltered.

  7. Oooh I love that bag! I want one!

  8. Note to Self: Bag, Borrow Steal.

    Also… celebrities *are* annoying aren’t they? The other day they had Miley Cyrus spouting off her opinion of Glee where she basically said she hates musicals and can’t stand the thought of having to even be on the same planet as them. I find this ironic since she stars on THE DISNEY CHANNEL! So yes, please count me in with the throwing of objects at celebrities. At least the loud-mouthed, ridiculous, attention starved ones. (90%)

    I’m still baffled at the “melt them all in a pot to make one giant candy bar” suggestion. If your mom wanted to make her own candy, wouldn’t she have just bought the supplies to make them herself rather than going through the trouble of ordering them from somewhere else? Are these people serious? I hope she gets free chocolate for a year from them. (the un-melted variety of course…)
