Where in the world is Carmen San Diego?

I remember being in school and playing this game. This one and The Oregon Trail. Exercises in using our Noggins to reason things out most likely. (This is waaaaaaaaay before the Carmen San Diego kids game show on TV...) I bring this up because I was recently in Half-Price Books with my MIL. It's so not hard to get her to go in. You just mention it and point the car and she's all for it.

While we were in there I overhear a conversation about the game. It's one reason I love shopping. People watching and eavesdropping on random conversations. Sorta Pygmalion if you will without the need to count the different accents and such. Anyways. A mother was asking if they had this game and the young girl at the counter had never heard of it and suggested where it might be if they had it. It's more evidence that I'm just getting older.... bah! lol.

But today I was blog-surfing through things and I came across Shutter Sisters equipment list subpage. Each of the contributors listed what they had in their camera bags. down to the sand and used kleenex. It made me wonder. What's in the bottom of your purse? Most of us carry them and we all know how things can get lost at the bottom. A book I'm currently reading even mentioned it. The heroine dumps an "armful" of stuff onto her companion and when he dryly commented "anything else?" she responded by telling him that the keys "always sink to the bottom." So I wonder...What's in YOUR purse.... or coat pocket as the case may be.

I have empty gum wrappers, a needle to inflate my volleyball(purchased a year ago and the ball is still waiting), a paperclip, a airline lock key (you know...the one that also fits your diary?), various folded up post-its, the business card with my eye appt for tomorrow, my wallet, two pens, a screwdriver (don't ask I dunno either), mascara that should be dumped, two things of travel kleenex, 2 Partylite Sponsoring CD's , 2 checkbooks (well one is only deposit slips...), my wallet, sunglasses, eyeglass case, eyedrops, keys and two Partylite tealights.

and don't ask me why there's a mayonaise packet beneath it all...I dunno about that either. I'm sure I had a good reason to stick that OR the shoyu packet in there... (oh yeah...and that's not my purse up there. Mine is NEVER that neat....)

Miss Aloha strikes again.

This past Saturday was Kainoa's birthday party. I was originally going to make excuses to not come, but decided to go anyways. Auntie Donna held it at 56th Street Community Pool which is super neat bc it's got water slides and a lazy river and all sorts of fun stuff for kids. I unfortunately don't have tons of pictures. I think subliminally my mind is telling me that my camera sucks. After the pool closed though, we gathered for a "BBQ" bday feast out front. I hate that I have absolutely no pictures of it, but he's seven and I'm sure I'll get more as he gets older.

What I did get though, was pictures of Chelsea walking off with my purse! She grabbed it, slung it over her shoulder and waved bye. Total hilarity because she even said bye-bye! How did she know my purse would be the one with all the money?!?! I'm telling you... Mikey's in a world of trouble when this girl gets old enough to shop!
