Life in the Fish Bowl

Fun Monday


Our host this week is Candid Karina. Our assignment is to share our security blankets, the items that we can't leave home without.

Damn if Fun Monday isn't a struggle for me every week! If it wasn't so much fun reading everyone else's and I wasn't such a follower, I'd just bail. But it is and I am so here goes.

I don't really have a security blanket. Never did as a child either. It's funny because neither does Punkin. Not a blanket or a particular toy. He never even took a pacifier. But things I can't leave home without? Now those I have plenty of.

Since Punkin is potty trained we really don't do the diaper bag thing anymore. Sure, we keep one in the car - just in case - but we don't carry it in anywhere with us. So I'm back to using a normal purse -
I also have to have my little planner - purse size, of course - and my most important possession, my credit card for daily expenses.
My cell phone. I like red. Sue me. No key photos because, SURPRISE!! I can't find them. But if I had my keys I'd be off with this sweetieIn my Mom mobileBut I could never, and I sincerely mean it, never leave the house without this one last thing.
Because I, dear readers, am blind as a damn bat!!!! Purse, credit card, planner, car - none of these would do me a bit of good without my contacts as I wouldn't be able to find any of them, even the car.

That's it for me. Go over to Karina's and check out the rest of the Fun Mondays. They're addictive, though, so go with care!

Ha ha ha! Can't quite commit to technology eh? Most of us tech types would have photoshopped the details off the credit card rather than cutting strips of paper.

Me too....I can't see diddly squat while driving....in the distance anyway. [did you find your keys yet? I know just where they are... they're at the last place you put 'em. *giggles*]

Mine's posted...
Have a great MOANday.

Jennifer said...

I don't need anything. Seriously. I usually shove my keys into one pocket and my cell phone in the other. Which, by the way, is exactly the same as yours!! I like red; sue me!!!

Bren said...

You mean you like red and not blue? :D

What's with the blue dot? I can't make out what it is.

Kellie said...

What's the blue dot?

Love the purse :)

The Rotten Correspondent said...

I like the red planner and phone. I'm all for anything I can pick out at the bottom of my pitch black purse.

Happy Fun Monday!

Serina Hope said...

Ooh. I love the purse. Where did you get that.
I will forgive you for saying I should throw away Stoosh becase you have such cool looking items.
My Mother feels the same way and I put up with her, so I guess we are cool. Happy Monday!

janet said...

nice purse. niiiiiiiiice!!

and the blue dot? umm... why?

Mango Marie said...

Add me to the list of people that like your purse! Feel free to send it my way when you grow tired of it....

Please, please tell us what the blue dot is!

lisa's chaos said...

I'm blind as a bat too, I'm in good company. :) And I can never find my keys either, that's why I leave them in the car. ;)

Sandy said...

I love the strips of paper on the credit card! So much faster than trying to blur it out. Great post. I didn't mention my glasses because they are never off of my face except for sleep and shower.

susan said...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that doesn't know what the blue dot is!

WT, she got techie with the license plate!

Catwoman said...

I love your purse! It looks so butter soft, I want ro roll around it naked!

OK, maybe I'll keep my clothes on while I roll on it, so that you don't get a restraining order.

Kimberly said...

Aren't acuvue lenses just luvvvvley?

RED head said...

Oh, PLEEEASE allow this lurker to explain the blue dot.

Remember the blue and red state maps plastered all over TV during federal election returns? You know, the ones indicating which states went Democrat (blue) vs. which went Republican (red)? Well, some libs in Alabama just couldn't take it that Alabama "went red"...uh...Republican. Sooo...they manufactured this cutsie little square red bumper/window sticker featuring a blue dot in the center. Beneath the dot it says, "another bright blue dot in a temporarily red state." Now libs all across America are joining the collective wah-wah-wah...

In my house, we refer to Democrats as simply "Blue Dots." And, it's not a term of endearment.

On MY car, the SOLID RED, sans-the-blue-dot "What dot?" sticker is proudly displayed. Yup. Those pesky blue dots are still the minority.

Yes, it's indeed puzzling why RED is this blog's author's favorite color. :)

Robinella said...

so glad my eyes are the same. I would surely get the R and L mixed up. That would suck.

Robin said...

LOVE the red phone (mine's boring silver).

I, too, was blind as a bat, then shazaam! Laser surgery...LOVE IT!

I don't have photoshop, either, so have to resort to strips of paper or Sharpie's to blot out what I don't want to broadcast on the WWW.

Minimalism is a virtue, I tell ya!

Beckie said...

Well...at least I know what the blue dot is now.

This was a tough one for me too. I used to wear acuvue...then I ran out so I wear my glasses.

ChrisB said...

I can see you like red, and your cell phone would certainly be easy to spot. I love the look of your handbag (purse).

Yankee Belle said...

Ha! I love the contacts. They are like second nature to me - well i should say my glasses, that I would never have thought to include them. Genius!

Joy T. said...

This is the second red cell phone I've seen on Fun Monday and I love it! It was also interesting reading the commenter who explained the blue dot. Funny but interesting.

Jennifer said...

I have to admit, I love the blue dot! What it says to me is "I think for myself and I don't buy into anybody's line". Myself, I have a fish on the back of mine and inside the fish is "nchips". Get it???!! I bought it at a shop in Atlanta that caters to Wiccans and that makes it all the more appealing to me!!

Crown Princess said...

that is the best lookin D&B purse i have seen.

alisonwonderland said...

i like red too! i'd have a red phone if mine wasn't a hand-me-down from my hubby!

Karina said...

You'd like my digital camera...it's red! ;-) I love your purse, very cool!

Sirdar said...

Nothing wrong with red. I bet it feels good to be back to a purse instead of the big bag to carry all that kid stuff.

Tiggerlane said...

Hey! Another red phone girl! AND LOVE THE BLUE DOT! I live in Arkansas...so...yeah...I need a car COVERED in blue dots!

I'm a Mom!..? said...

Wow! Blue Momma, what did you do to "Red Head"??

That Chick Over There said...

I have the same phone and I loooooooooove it.

M said...

I am so jealous of your phone. I'm a secret red lover but too lame to do anything about it. Cod I'm jealous.

And I'm REALLY jealous of a normal purse. Sure my diaper bag kinda RESEMBLES a purse (if you use vinyl purses that slip off your shoulder constantly) but it is NOT as much fun as a purse. *sigh*
