I feel like my insides are going to burst out from inside of me on the one day I want to feel exceptionally sexy. Damn you, period.

Now that I'm ready to spend a little more if I find something I love, I can't find anything I love. I bought one over the holidays, but for $130 it wasn't absolutely perfect in some of the functionality so I returned it. The search continues. I'm fine if it's a cheapy, I just want something new to carry that's fun and cute and I want a bright color.

I've tried Marshall's and TJ Maxx and they had squat! There must have been a purse buying rush or something because the racks were practically empty.
That's funny, I could almost have written the same thing word for word, and I also want something with perfect functionality (for me) that is fun and cute and a bright color, I'm tired of boring neutral colors.

KK, I did try Marshalls. And TJMaxx, and Steinmart, plus Kohls and Macys (I had coupons!!), etc., but no luck.

How do the rest of you buy purses online? I feel like I have to see it and touch it and make sure it's the perfect shape and size, and see if it has structure or if it's slouchy, and look inside to make sure it has all the right slots and zipper-thingies and such. (I may be a little picky....a little) How do you do it?
Marshalls and TJMaxx are definitely hit or miss. I've been there many, many times and found nothing. but all it takes if for me to have one score to make me a believer again, that happened last spring Haven't had any luck since though. Maybe next time!

I can't do purses online, either, for the same reasons as you.

I found this awesome humanitarian aid/development training program being offered in my city this summer... But it costs $3000+.

My offer about the purses --- ordering to my address for shipment to Canada or just straight out taking some of mine --- stands.

In the meantime, JHC! I just rebuilt my bed from the bottom up: slats, frame, that thing under the mattress (box something), mattress, and memory foam pad. It was one of those project fevers I get sometimes. Heavy, awkward work.

The dust under there was awful. All gone now!

My students acted out this advertisement yesterday. I laughed so hard! They told me I was a terrible director. The part where the "female lead" shouted out "line!" had me in stitches. I like my job.

...and Willian Levy, we share the same b-day and thanks for reminding me that I need to move to Cuba.

And I could have written this! It has to pass several usage tests, like is the strap drop long enough for me to put it on my shoulder with only one hand? Are the handles stiff or will they have some give so they're not always in my way? Is it slouchy on the inside or structured and are there enough pockets for all my junk? It's hard to look at a picture online and determine all of these things. haha

All this aside I still want the one on ebay even though I wouldn't be able to return it if I don't like it, it's just cute, darn it! I'm still watching it and trying to decide.

Hey Canadians... Question:

The other night at work, we had a strangely large amount of Canadians come into work. One girl ordered her coffee and then said "And I'd like that with triple cream, please."

I probably sounded like an idiot, because after a few seconds of a blank stare on my face I got it together and then said "... I'm not entirely sure what triple cream is, actually." But then before she could respond, her friend was like "No no, they've got half-and-half over here at the condiment counter."

Is triple cream some elusive Canadian dairy product? Or was she perhaps just asking for triple the normal amount of cream?

I feel like this is a valid question, considering milk does come in bags up in the Great White North.

She was just asking for three times the amount of cream. We have a lot of people who like a triple triple from Tom Hortons. Which is enough sugar to rot your teeth out.

I think she just wanted triple the amount of cream. Double cream is another name for heavy cream, the highest fat percentage for it being 40% (I was hunting some down today because supermarkets carry crap cream for the most part). It goes down from there and up you have clotted cream.

She wanted triple the cream.

Here it's pretty common to hear large double double....large coffee with two sugars and two creams.

I'm and XL 3 milk 1 sugar kinda girl

Haha good to know! Thanks! The way she said it is mostly what tripped me up, I think...

I just googled a triple-triple/double-double. That's a lot of milk/sugar!

Do a lot of places (just in general, not necessarily in Canada) put cream and sugar in your coffee for you? It seems odd to me. Like, overall, wouldn't most people be happier to add it themselves? I hate it when people are like "just add some soy milk to that, please" and I'm like... *panic* "GAH, I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH YOU WANT! Don't make me do this, PLEASE!!!"

Sometimes I resort to handing them the carton, and they always look taken aback. Look people, I'm not doing that because I'm lazy. I'm doing it so you won't yell at me when I put too much/not enough milk in your coffee!

Tim Hortons is a massive chain here, similar to Dunkin Donuts, I think.

A place like that, you order it how you want it...DoubleDouble, TripleTriple, etc.

Places like Starbucks, Williams, Timothy's, Second Cup, etc, you do it yourself.

LOL, this ****ing article:

http://www.trueactivist.com/nine-foo...ver-eat-again/

This coming from a FB friend that I would think a bit more aware than this. Stay away from white rice! It's only a staple for billions of people! Guess we gotta tell them. And that poisonous white flour killing Europeans for thousands of years! It's not even worth discussing that not all flour is bleached and bromated because it's beside the point.
