Although I percieve my town in a different way than the visiting tourist who wrote that article, but it makes me feel strangely proud that you liked the description.

i'd like to announce that i'm freaking out

like totally-- i think i'm going to throw up

so if anybody would like to discuss the origin of handbags with me it'd be sooo nice

Frieda, these "facts"may or may not be true
and i am afraid it may end up being more of a debate than a discussion
but here is my copy and paste :) .........

"If we were to trace the origin of handbags, women would likely be surprised to know that they were first utilized by a group of men some 2000 years ago. Although wholesale handbags were not in the scene at this time, men in biblical times did indeed carry the equivalent of what we consider to be the handbags of today.

This practice came to women’s knowledge and from then on, its handbags became completely indispensable. Handbags, purses, or any other kinds of totes will forever be a part of women’s wardrobes. Although some men continue to don handbags occasionally, women have dominated the scene in the handbag industry."

(tomorrow we could discuss bagels and lox ??? ~"~

I am announcing that I ran the Human Race, and am most proud, despite the terrible conditions + a shockingly bad time

^^^Wow, I was just about to come and make an announcement about my handbag :D

I got a new bag.
This is a really big thing for me. I need a hand-luggage bag to travel with, and when I travel, I darn well travel, and I've been doing a fair bit lately. I don't want to be forever hitching up a shoulder bag or to have no hands free to find my bus/train/plane ticket. I don't obsess over shoes, or makeup, or my hair style, so I feel I am totally justified in being particular about my bag.

I've had my camping-brand backpack for years, and it's made of tough stuff but it is unbearably awkward in tiny antique curiosity shops with glass shelves. My other bag is a canvas shopping bag but it's no good for long hauls.

So I went and had some retail therapy at the local charity shop, and emerged particularly victorious. We're made for each other. It's the most beautiful patterned black leather, not too big but big enough, and it zips up. Most important, the straps are long enough to cross them over and wear it like a backpack. There's only a main pocket and tiny hidden compartment, so it's not really a handbag, which suits me, but it's not a backpack, either. I dub it my bagpack.
The icing on the cake: it comes with a little matching mini-bag, just the size for a pencilcase for my art supplies.
The cherry on top: it was $3.
Charity shops=my health spa.

I looked it up, what a name for a race :) but what an excellent idea.
I'm proud of you too now, such things are a real accomplishment to my thought. Congrats. :)

I'm organizing photos and film! The flickr set is building slowly, but they've got new bells and whistles I'm navigating (trying to figure out if it's quicker to rotate in PS, or upload and rotate in this new picnik thingy they've got...)

here's the flickr set link: http://flickr.com/photos/lukkucairi/...7607075245751/

will be working on cleaning it up over the next few days but if you can stand the bad exposure and unrotated pictures, feel free to peruse :)

Frieda 09-02-2008 01:53 PM

wowowowowowoowwowow cool :)

Odbe 09-02-2008 06:04 PM
