If the contents of a woman's purse says a lot about her, what does your purse (or carryall or tote or backpack) say about you?

You suddenly have an hour to yourself. You are free to do whatever you want and are not obligated to answer to anyone during or after that hour. What do you do?

What do you think is the worst show on television this season?
Which show is your favorite? Which show do you secretly love, but wouldn't admit to?

What is your very favorite dessert of all time?

It says I have asthma and a super-allergy to bee sting; I hate dry lips; I love to travel; I'm a Safeway shopper; and I'm not overly fond of credit cards.

Nap... duh. ;)

Television?? Show?? You mean there's something on there besides NFL Sundays? Hunh... I wouldn't know.

Warm, homemade chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven.

Nilbo said...

I travel light. When I do carry a small portfolio, it says "I'm efficient and well-prepared". So ... it lies.

Hour to myself? I come online. Every time.

Worst show? I loathe "Dancing With The Washed-Up Former Stars". But Pushing Daisies makes my brain hurt with its stupidity.

Favourite show? The Office. I love that show. I also love the Amazing Race, but it's still not on this season and it's bugging me.

Guilty pleasure? Survivor. It's been my guilty pleasure for a decade now. So much so I almost don't feel guilty.

Favourite dessert? Three way tie between my Granny's cinnamon/raisin coffee cake; my Mom's Lazy Daisy cake (aka California Squares - basically a white cake with coconut icing); and my own chocolate chip cookies. Mmmmm. Also: French Vanilla Ice Cream. Yummm.

What do the contents of my billfold say about me ?
What can a few dollars, a debit card, and a bunch of receipts say ?
An hour to myself ?
Going on line of course.
Worst TV show ?
Favorite show ?
Northern Exposure re-runs.
Secretly loved TV show ?
Thomas the Tank Engine
Favorite dessert ?
Blue berry pancakes, heavy in blueberries, a la mode with vanilla ice cream.
I am a bit weird about other things too.

At the moment, my purse would be misleading, because I just got a new one and it's still nice and clean. It's still got that new car smell, almost. ohhhhh

If I had an hour to myself and I felt good, I'd head out on a hike with my camera.

The worst show on TV is that one with the rapper guy called flava of love, or something like that.

I don't have a favorite show just yet.
I find that my old favorites don't have the same appeal for me this season. For instance, I'm not really looking forward to the return of "Lost" and I doubt I'll make time for it.

I disagree with Nilbo, Pushing Daisies was funny! There was a scene with Swoozie Kurtz where she has to shoot an intruder with her one good eye... Oh, that takes too long to explain, but it was funny. I don't take sitcoms very seriously, however.

For the dessert question, I was just trying to think of that one dessert that ranks high above all others, but I can't come up with one. Almond filled bear claws would be high up there. And maybe my chocolate decadence pudding stuff.

My purse says pretty much exactly what my (younger, newly married) sister said about it, after I commented on her itty-bitty clutch and compared it to my ginormous, 25-lb. albatross: "You're a Mom. It's a Mom purse."

An hour to myself, with no obligations? Either a nap, or some retail therapy. I've been a stressed-out mess lately.

I haven't watched much TV lately (I'm actually thinking about cancelling the cable subscription.), but I did see the previews for that "Cavemen" show and thought that looked positively absurd and awful. That'd probably be my vote for the worst show. Have they cancelled it yet?

Favorite show? "Brothers and Sisters." That's probably the only reason I haven't cancelled the cable. Even though I haven't watched it in a week or two. I just don't take time for TV like I used to.

Favorite dessert...probably my grandmother's Chocolate Delight. I love that stuff. I make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas. YUMMY.

Love and hugs to you and yours, CK.

LadyBug said...

Oooh, I forgot to answer the "guilty pleasure" question. I would never, ever admit that I actually enjoy watching "America's Next Top Model." I don't even know when it comes on, but if I happen to flip through the channels and catch it on -- and the kids aren't around -- I can't help but watch it. Maybe it's the Train Wreck effect?

Kellan said...

I've got a big purse and lots of stuff - is says I'm a "control freak" - which I am.

I'd go shopping for myself.

I love the new show Damages.

See ya.

Bone Machine said...

I carry a man-purse or backpack. It probably says I carry way too much crap around with me.

With an hour to myself, I would spend three minutes mourning the decline of YPS!! and the other 57 minutes would be spend digging for my keys in my backpack.

I have an absolute burning hatred for American Idol, that dancing show, and of those hook-up shows on VH1 (Bret Michaels, Flavor Flav, etc). In my mind these are all examples of a declining civilization. My Name Is Earl is good. Almost everything else is crap.

Krispy Kreme donuts fresh from the grease.

WILLIAM said...

My fav show is the Office and I am digging Chuck.

Queen Karana said...

I saw a comment you left on Oh, The Joys blog -- the one about capturing the stories behind all of the pictures we take. You ended with a question - "what about the digital?"

There is a program that I love that manages all of my digital photos (organization, back-ups, printing, editing, everything!) that I really love, AND it includes a place to type in your stories that go along with the pictures. It's sold by Creative Memories.

I love this program - I have used it now for about 9 months now and I think it is incredible. I have yet to find anything like it elsewhere in the market.

If you want more information, feel free to email me
( karana at mikasare dot com ) - I am happy to answer your questions. Capturing the stories is really important to me too, so I just HAD to say something. :)

wordgirl said...

My backpack says that I'm afraid to leave home without many things. Surf the internet or read. Television? Hmmm. I love the new show "Carpoolers" and can't stand any of the reality shows. Seriously. Secretly love...I can't think.

Favorite dessert? Maybe a brown sugar cinnamon crumb cake with butter on it. And a cold glass of milk.

Momentarily_Distracted said...

It says I lose or give away a lot of pens on a daily basis and that I shop at only one grocery store.

Chill out with my puppies or crochet.

I hate reality tv.
I love the History Channel and The Discovery Channel.


Nilbo said...

Sneaking in toe whisper: "Happy Barfday, CK!"

Nilbo said...

I have no idea what a toe whisper is. But I bet it would be fun ...

Susie said...

My purse says I shop at Target too much.

I would sleep for an hour.

Ohmygosh. The Bachelor is probably the worst. The Office is probably my favorite. I am secretly liking Dirty Sexy Money. (If you got any, send it to me.)

My favorite dessert is . . . BIRFDAY CAKE! Gimme a piece! Happy Birfday to you, CK! XXXXXX (and you KNOW what that means!)

P.S. Have I taught you nothing? Why aren't you on here soliciting wishes and such?

Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Happy Birthday, ringmaster! :)

* My purse says that I carry way too much shit with me, and you could lose an arm in there. Unless, of course, you grab the wrong purse, and then it says "BIG PERV ON HER WAY TO A DATE."

* An hour to myself? A Corona and some self abuse.

* I can't say about the worst because I only selectively watch shows that aren't on the History Channel. My fave shows are, as usual, "Dexter" and "Weeds." "My Name is Earl" is always worth a few belly laughs, too.
I have no secret guilty pleasures, just the big open guilty pleasure that I watch "General Hospital" on a regular basis.

* Dessert? Old-fashioned fountain sodas. Vanilla would be a good starter, then we'll work our way up to butterscotch.

Nance said...

My purse says I have a lipstick fetish. An hour to myself finds me reading or online. Worst show is any reality show that exploits women like "The Bachelor". I absolutely love "The Office" and it's the only show I try not to miss. My very favorite dessert of all time is chocolate creme brulee.

eclectic said...

I'm so glad I'm here in time to wish you a Happy Birthday!!! Hope it's filled with laughs, and little clowns, and kisses, and CAKE! LOTS and LOTS of cake. (Although ice cream is good, too.)

But I'm with Susie... where's the birthday pimping?! *sheesh*

Squirl said...

Happy Birthday, CK!!!!

Bone Machine said...

Cake is being served and the cult leader wasn't invited? What kind of shit is that? Sheesh.

Have a nifty birthday.

Circus Kelli said...

Thanks, guys! I appreciate the birfday wishes!

Circus Kelli said...

My purse says I have way too much junk and not enough purse so it often says "find the bottom of this purse".

I would pick "nap" for that hour, too.

Caveman is the worst. Favs include the "standards" for me: Law and Order, Without a Trace, Ghost Whisperer, Heroes, House.

Gimme a hot fuge brownie sundae any day. ;)
