It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

So. Y'all know I went to high school in the 80s, right?

Whether I like it or not, it means that whenever I get obsessed with stuff, this Animotion song starts playing in my head. (For those of you needing assistance, click "Obsession.") It's ridiculous, I know. (Synthesizers!)

Now then. Y'all also know about my complete and utter lack of restraint when it comes to handbag shopping. Absolutely no self-discipline whatever. I have tons of bags, some of them very good bags, others are crap and I don't mind because they're fun and I'll be tired of them in a month and who cares, right? I don't need a new bag, but I'm going to get one anyway. Because. And that means I am **also** going to get rid of one.

My current Obsession: a Matt & Nat bag. I'm trying to decide, here's one: Jorja. Here's the other: Bond Street.

I'll decide, but until then, think about the song. Heh. And if you send me an email at meangirl AT comcast DOT net I'll enter you in my contest. I'm giving away a Hype handbag. Just 'cause. I've carried it twice. It's an olive green Westshire Hobo, nubuck leather, yummy plaid lining, very hip, $220 retail. (I didn't pay anywhere near that for it, thank the Lord for ranch dressing and Marshall's.) I just don't like the color as much as I thought I would. It's not worth selling on eBay - Hype bags don't seem to be selling at the moment. And maybe later this month I'll clear out a Billy Bag. (Maybe.)

So...email me. Say hello, tell me you read this blog and you don't mind my crazy. No comment entries will be accepted - I want to be able to contact the person who wins and Blogger stinks for that. I'll put all the entries into a random number generator and let the computer pick the winner. ETA: The contest will be open till 6pm Sunday, and Sunday night I'll pick a winner.

Here's a picture. Give me some love!

I also went to school school in the '80s, and I'm convinced all that hair spray did something to my brain. But enough of that.

I really like the Bond Street bag. Now about the song... must start thinking! : )

i do donate several a year to rid myself of the guilt, though.

I think I remember you posting about finding this bag. I too have the bag obsession and an overstuffed closet shelf to prove it.
