What's in your wallet?

Well, not that anyone asked, but yes, I am a bit bored today. I've got a sick kid all doped up on dextromethorphan so when he's not rambling around the house in a fugue muttering, he's asleep. I've managed to clean most of the house, except for the kitchen. SweetieDarling and I are having a battle of the wills over that one. It's her only chore and she can't keep it up. So the dishes are towering in the sink, clean ones are languishing in the dishwasher, ants are threatening to carry the lot off, and I'm not touching it. I will order take out and eat off paper plates for the rest of the summer, but I am not cleaning that kitchen. So! I feel better now that we've gotten that established.

I do have a point to this post, truly. I'm doing the "whats in your purse" meme. That's right! Your wait is over! No, I wasn't tagged for it. Why? Who let you in here anyway?

Gather round poppets, and behold:

This is my briefcase and purse. I have to do both because they are both surgically attached to my body. And, despite the fantastic color quality of the photo, they are both red. The black and white spots at the top of the pic are a puppy, sleeping on my pillow, waiting for something to pounce on and chew.

In the briefcase we have a variety of boring items. Trade partner training materials (snore), company brochures (that I designed. Yay me!) brag book, bluetooth, ginormous paper clip, and parts diagram for backhoe part. I have to research and print the diagram because when I go to the John Deere store to order the part? Since I don't have a penis? They don't think I know what I need. Grrr. OOh, and my darling little Coach wristlet. Toss in a lipstick, some money and the phone and I can leave the rest in the truck.

The purse was better than I expected. Notebook that goes everywhere with me and gets lots of stuff written down in it that never gets done; pad of paper for piglet to record his deepest thoughts on (no, he can't write! Again, who let you in?); old lady reading glasses with rhinestones on the corners, woot!; wallet, very empty, moths circling above it are not pictured; purell wipes; lipsticks; earrings I have never seen before; palm pilot and blackberry. I know the blackberry is supposed to eliminate the palm pilot but that would entail my actually installing blackberry software and transferring stuff and all kinds of techy things that I don't want to think about. The business cards are ones I picked up at the gym for local personal trainers.

Not to be snarky, well, ok lets, but don't you think she could've at least proofed her cards? Whats that? I should've proofed my blurry pictures? Thats it, I'm throwing you out.

Do you like your bluetooth? I haven't broken down yet, but I'm seriously considering it.

Remember, I'm never in the car anymore. At all.

Good for you for sticking to your guns on the 'dishes chore' thing! Kids have to learn and have respect for themselves and others.

The your/you're mistake- most common and most dreaded. :)

I'm taking a break from my own Blackberry hell right now. I just got the new Curve and can't get my contacts to transfer! GAH! I'm not techie enough to fix it and the tech support that lives here, otherwise known as the SO, is asleep for the past 4 hours. Yes its 10:30, yes he decided 6:30pm was appropriate for a nap!
