The Purse Dump Meme!

I love being tagged by a meme, but I think this one is my favorite. Why? Perhaps because there's no way to make it any prettier than it is -- what's in your purse is what's in your purse, as long as you're honest. And I was. Unless you count the pay stub I took out since it has my name and social security number on it. No offense, blog land, but you don't need to know the 411 on my busizzle. Thanks, Ro, for the tag!

Here it is, in all it's glory -- the contents of my brown Coach tote:

Answer these questions:

Describe the contents of your handbag: "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" (which I'm loving), cell phone, blue tooth, sunglasses, iPod Touch, wallet, flash drive with all my event details, lip gloss, pen, barrette, purse holder, box tops, moist towelette, a receipt for Baskin Robbins from the other night out with my kids, a receipt for my boss' sandwich today, my beloved Valium and my work badge.

What's the most important thing in your handbag? I'm torn between my wallet and my iPod.

What's the most embarrassing thing in your handbag? I've got to go with the work badge, on which there is a picture of me where I actually appear drunk. I was just happy, really. I swear.

What's the smallest thing in your handbag? Hair barrette for hair emergencies.

Is there anything illegal in your handbag? I suppose the Valium, but only if I drive just after taking it.

Here is the fine print:
Find a safe quiet place free of significant others, nosey meme makers, priests, nuns, all things religious and men in general. (If you're a guy just reverse this process to male and tell us about your wallet, tool box, briefcase or metro sexual accessory.) Don't look at me, I just cut and paste.
1. Dump the contents of your handbag in a pile.
2. Take a photo of your handbag and the contents.
3. Be brave and explain to your fellow bloggers what lurks inside the handbag.
4. Tag others who might want to embarrass themselves.
5. Answer the above questions in your blog.

Whom am I tagging? Hmmmm...howz about:

John Deere Mom

Darcie at Such the Spot

Have fun girls!

Very nice. Damn, you have very little in your purse. I am embarassed to literally have "a pile of garbage" as one of my items! Thanks for playing.

What an awesome idea!

Question though. Do you still love your EnV? I've discovered if I carry mine in my pocketbook it becomes possessed and turns itself off every single time. Annoying!!!

#1- love the Coach bag
#2 - LOL at the Valium and you rock for including it (I'm partial to Xanax myself)

and #3) High fives for being the only other McCain supporter (as far as i can tell) in the blogosphere.

This will be my post on Nov. 12th:

Sheri - yeah, the enV has made me want to go back to a regular simple flip phone, but I do so love the keyboard!

Sue - Blog high five! Nice to see another non-Obama lover in the crowd. Not to mention your support for Coach and Valium!
