The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
I didn’t leave work until after 6 p.m., didn’t get home until after 7 p.m., and still have to pack for a business conference. So I figured I would just write “packing,” and put up a few pics, and you guys would understand. I despise packing.
But I thought I should be a transparent blogger, and give you a little glimpse into my so-called life today, so you can see what a
bad squirrely woman I am.
While I was waiting in the long, long line at the pharmacy, the most cherubic little boy with the rosiest cheeks, started puking violently on the carpeted floor. As one gentleman immediately swiped the drugstore’s handy sales circulars from their cage and laid them on the floor for, er, protection, my only thought was, “This is how it starts in Stephen King’s The Stand.” (Which is one of my fave books ever, and I’ve read, like, 1,563 times.)
Then I wondered if dumping one of the nearby 24 oz. antibacterial hand soap bottles over my head would be considered shop-lifting if I was willing and able to pay for it, and was standing in line anyway.
I did ask the poor kid’s mom if she needed help, and tell a drugstore employee there was a cleanup, on, uh,
aisle…the carpet. Then I completely wigged out wondered if I had just been exposed to The Modern Version of The Plague for the next two hours.
Which really interferes with my packing. Here are my thought processes regarding the key elements of my suitcase:
Those Blue Shoes (John Fluevog Breva Pumps go with everything)
The Miracle Belt (Coral skinny belt from Target goes with everything)
Zip lock bag of MMD button flowers and safety pins for any fashion accessory emergency (Megan Mae Daily)
It’s okay if you stop reading my blog. I certainly don’t read it 😛
Name one thing you have to travel with that others’ might find, er, odd. You know, just to make me feel better.
Addendum: I am super, super STOKED! Ally got the outfit Megan and I thrifted for her! She rocks orange!
