quickies

It's been a long time since I've done quickies, so here goes:

  • Tuesday's fast was horrible.  I did not make it all the way through.  I had a doctor's appointment in the morning and she said I'm probably anemic and that I should absolutely not fast all day.  She's Orthodox herself, so she did understand the importance of the fast.  She said I needed to start eating around 1pm.   at around 2:30pm I was dying, so I called a rabbi to find out what to do, and he told me to break my fast.  So I did.  So I'm a wimp.  Oh well.
  • Sometimes Charlie is unbelievably cute.  And he always has a wet nose.  A cold, wet nose. 
  • He will never be as cute as Pipsqueak, though.
  • I helped mscongeniality pack a little bit yesterday.  Not as much as I'd hoped, but the combination of Seth forgetting to tape a show for me, my head hurting, and not having eaten enough that day sent me home earlier.  I did get 5 boxes of books packed, but that's not much in the scheme of things, so I feel a little bad.
  • Once I got home, the phone would not stop ringing.  Sigh.  *ring* "Grand Central"... *ring* "Hello?"... *ring* "What?"
  • Fortunately, one of the phone calls was the upholstery guy making an appointment to come over today to fix the tear in the back of the BRAND NEW CHAIR that needs to be fixed.  So he's coming today.  Whew.
  • We are having company for shabbos, so I have to figure out what to make.   Hrm.  First this is going to involve a lot of dish washing.  Oh I can't WAIT to have a dishwasher.  Sigh.  At any rate, it's also going to involve a fair bit of grocery shopping.  Suggestions are welcome.
  • I've decided that I need to suck it up and buy a PDA.  I'm losing track of too many appointments and numbers to have any excuse anymore.
  • If I'm going to buy a PDA, I have to buy a new purse.  I really want a specific Coach Purse. I've wanted this same purse for years.  And I mean years.  Almost a decade, in fact.  And I've always refused to spend that much money on a purse.  But the next time I've got spare money around, I'm buying it.  So there.
  • I know it seems silly to buy a purse for a PDA, but the thing is that my current purse simply isn't large enough to carry my wallet (I need a new one of those too, but I can live with mine for the moment...it's on it's last legs though), a cell phone, a PDA and my keys.  My purse now barely holds my wallet, cell phone and keys, let alone the PDA.  Therefore, I think it's time for a new purse.
  • Speaking of cell phones, I lost mine.  Dammit.
  • Yes, I definitely sound like I'm just trying to justify an outrageously expensive purchase.  Right.  So I am trying to justify it.  Sigh.  This is why I've been drooling over the purse for 10 years and have never purchased it.  I always talk myself out of it.
  • The ants are waning.  The exterminator came out and sprayed in the kitchen and around the perimeter of the house.  It is supposedly going to take 5 days or so to get rid of them all, but they promise to come back if they don't all go away.  Hopefully, we won't have to call them again.
  • Since we're looking to pull all the cabinets out of the kitchen, I'm hoping that at some point we'll find out where they're getting into the house and we will obliterate them.  :)
  • Right.  Ahem.

That is all for now.

Current Mood: cheerful cheerful

It's not silly. Especially if you've been drooling over it for 10 years. If you can afford it and know you'll get a lot of use out of it, then I'd say do it.

It's like buying my eMac. My roommate wants me to get my scuba certification...which was about the same amount of money as my eMac.

Hmmm. Nice low end geeky toy I'll use every day versus diving with the fishes once or twice a year...

The choice is clear...

It's literally been 10 years. (It's been so long that this is in Coach's "Clasics" section of their collection) Still, I'm not sure that I really _can_ afford it. And I've never been able to find anything else that I want. Oh, well, that's not true. There's another classic coach purse that would do nicely, except that it costs even more, which is why I want the other one! (If money were no object, then the more expensive one might be my choice)

i'm waiting for a dishwasher too. sigh. someday......

ps, i think it's perfectly justifiable to spend an obscene amount of money on something that you will use for years and will last for a long time. for example...i spent $40 on a hat last year and i wear it every time i leave the house. well worth it.

buy the darn purse
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: July 30th, 2004 06:08 am (UTC) (Link)
yeah. The problem is that this is a little more than $40. Make that a lot more. Which is why I've been drooling over it for so long. It's never going to happen.

yes. but a leather coach purse will last longer than a cloth hat. and you will use it daily. how much is it? i have a coach purse i dont want and you can return it to the store for a credit if you'd like.

You should take that purse back and return it yourself and get yourself something pretty.

The purse is here:

i dont like coach purses....yuck. and it's just going to sit here in my house unless i take it to a yard sale. i've used it twice i think. i'd rather it get used well than have it collect dust here.

besides :) a coach purse would no way hold diapers, a bottle, whipes, a few toys, a container of cheerios, my wallet, keys, cell phone, changing pad, bottle warming, hand cleanser, a spare outfit and zip loc bags :)
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: July 30th, 2004 08:25 am (UTC) (Link)
Actually, Coach makes a diaper bag too. ;)

I don't like ANY of the current coach line. They're hideous. The only ones I like are the "classics"
From: gittygiggles Date: July 30th, 2004 09:13 am (UTC) (Link)
like i'd buy a coach diaper bag! if you want my purse to return...you're MORE than welcome to it. i'm not kidding.

how did you end up with a coach purse if you hate Coach purses?
From: gittygiggles Date: July 30th, 2004 11:14 am (UTC) (Link)
it was a christmas present from all the parents at the school i used to work at. it's really the most useless purse on earth. i doubt it could hold a wallet, check book, phone and keys easily. and it has one of those stupid straps that makes it feel like a 3rd boob. they gave both me and my coteacher one. mine is light beige and hers was maroon. they gave two fo the other teachers pocket size leather bound sketch books. lots of money...but...useless. although....it was a nice a christmas gift....

Yeah, I'm hoping that in the fall we'll gut the kitchen and wind up with a couple sinks, a couple ovens and a dishwasher or two. Here's hoping.

Which purse? Is there a pic somewhere online? I know someone who deals in purses. :-)

I've never been able to get the link to work with < a href ... >, which is the only reason it was never in the post in the first place. I'm not sure what's up with that link, but I've checked it a few times, and that is definitely the link.

Who do you know who deals in purses??
