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?
