The contents of my own purse are fairly utilitarian. I have a weakness for purses–I like to collect them–so I force myself to switch purses every two weeks just to rotate my collection. This tends to keep clutter to a minimum.
Inside you’ll find a huge wallet filled with discount cards, etc., glasses for reading, prescription sunglasses for driving, prescription regular glasses for driving (I’m aging), my Maxalt tablets for whenever a migraine strikes, assorted pens and highlighters (most of the pens don’t work), a little wallet for business cards, a little wallet for post-it notes and sticky flags, a change purse, a couple of throat lozenges, a mirror, a lipstick in a case, a compact I hardly ever use, a pack of gum, and a collapse-able brush. I’m the type who would carry a Swiss army knife, except that I travel a lot and you can’t get through airport security with one. Oh–and my cell phone, of course, which I honestly use only for emergencies, and my passport, which I always carry for ID because I HATE my drivers’ license picture.
Saturday, when I was cleaning house, I discovered a great way to knock several years’ dust off a silk ficus tree–I have a six footer in my bedroom that makes me sneeze, so I took it outside and dunked it in the swimming pool. It seems to have survived pretty well, so I think I’ll baptize it every year. (If you don’t have a pool, I should think a spritz with the garden hose would work just as well. Yes, it’s sunny and warm down here in Florida. The oak trees are molting. They make me sneeze.)
Found a wonderful review of UNCHARTED here. Thank you, Lauren Steigerwald–you were not only kind, but you didn’t give the plot away! Also found copies of UNCHARTED for sale last night on eBay . . . pretty good trick, since the book won’t be released until July fourth. They’re selling “unread” advance reader copies . . . somehow, that hurts my heart. (The entire point of ARCs is for reviewers to READ them.)
I pre-posted this because I know I’ll be busy Tuesday and Wednesday . . . so thanks again for the great purse contents!
