Purse Inventory or Crap I Carry Around

Everyone carries random crap around in their purse. Often times my purse ends up being the black hole home that tells the story of my recent handlings. My brother decided I needed some more fun and silly pictures for this blog post. Big thanks to my guest cartoonist is Onewitherr. They definitely add a spin to this post.

Inventory

  • An opened bag of honey lemon Ricola cough drops with Echinacea.
    They are delicious and have been my friend during the past week. I don’t know if it was allergies or a sore throat, but I’m glad to be feeling better.
  • Lemony scented moist towelettes that I stole from Chili’s. I feel no shame for jacking them from the dinner table. The wrapper reads, ” Pepper some freshness.”
  • Pack of Orbit gum with three pieces left. Wildberry remix flavor.
    As are many of my purchases (cough drops), I bought my gum at my favorite grocery store–the salvage store.

    Purse full of random crap

  • A wadded up Walmart receipt with 13 items on the list. I recently went “nice” clothes shopping for work. I will likely share a blog with my clothes choices soonish.
  • Circle tin of Nivea hand creame for when my hands are super rusty. As the weather gets colder my hands get more dry and sometimes crack. I try to put lotion on my hands and drink extra fluids, but the cold fights dirty.
  • Artistry brand light up lip gloss. A gift from my cousins up North. I like to wear this when I wanna feel fancy. When you unscrew the top the light turns on and there is a tiny mirror on the side of the tube. Like I said, to feel fancy.

    Dumping my junk

  • One dollar in quarters. The soda machine at my new work only takes quarters. It is a good indulgence for my lunchtime. I also have three random pennies.
  • 6 tampons. There are four different styles. and three different brands represented. It looks like a bunch of different wrapped candies. Some of them are brightly colored and fun (I love the UKotex packaging). This may sound a little psycho, but typically I forget to throw some in my purse until !surprise! Then I throw an entire box into my purse and forget until….It’s a vicious cycle.
  • Mission Skincare mint chapstick. A gal can never have too much lip product in her purse. This is my favorite colorless lip stuff. The mint is fresh but not like a breath mint burn.

  • A Bic Atlantis black ink pen. Similarly to tampons, I often end up with absolutely no writing utensils or a thousand in my purse.
  • A snack sized snap lock baggie with 9 Advil pills in it. This also makes me look a little crazy. I didn’t have a travel sized bottle and I needed something to cut the edge off of my scratchy throat last week. Now it is just squirreled in my purse for the occasional headache.
  • Personal checkbook/wallet. This is expected, right?

What weird crap do you carry around either on purpose or accidentally?

Return of the Kat

I’m home!!

Had roughly 7 hours of sleep, food, coffee, water and even planned dinner for tonight.

Can you believe my productivity?
I just generally being lazy. I could do more if I wanted.

In fact today’s plan involved washing up my laundry from the trip, but I got sidetracked when I found baby chicken #9 was laid out in the rain.

Slaughtering an animal for food is one thing, but walking away from a baby animal that is on death’s door is not something I can do.

I brought him in and held him in a dry washcloth for a bit so he could get some of my body heat. This may sound irresponsible but it was the best I could do—I gave the chick some human baby electrolytes (like pedialyte).

Drop by drop he was drinking and currently he is holding on. Nursing baby animals, especially birds is not a strong suit of mine. At least I can say he will be warm, dry and somewhat hydrated if I lose him tonight.

In addition to being the Nightingale to the chicken I am getting supper ready.

Dinner is a little bit random because I don’t want to have to make a full shopping list and spend hours at walmart just after vacation.

Supper is spicy quiche! I will put rotel tomatoes, onions, dry red pepper (+other spices), cheese, milk, and eggs in it.

Dessert is flan! I am using a box mix that we got ages ago at the salvage store. It has set up well in the fridge. Fingers crossed that it tastes as good as it looks.

I’ve missed my readers very much.

How have you all been?

Is there something in particular you would like to read a blog about?

Day 238: Gas Station Art

image

My mom really wanted me to snap a picture of this random Kentucky wall art at a gas station.

She asked me to take pictures of about ten more things–to which I said, you have a camera and it does the same thing as my phone.

This was just one of the gas stations we stopped at on our way to Illinois for our road trip.

 

{Edit: My mother saw my blog and wants me to be more accurate :P
This is wall art featuring the Father of Blue Grass, Bill Monroe. This is not random, but close to his hometown in Ohio County, Kentucky. *eye roll*}
