I was just looking for a chapstick in my purse. I *know* it was in there, I remember seeing it a couple of days ago while rummaging around looking for a receipt. It was a red one. Cherry probably. I didn't find it.
Here's what I did find, and a strange assortment it is:
a cork from a wine bottle (?!)
I don't remember how that got in there. Oh wait, I do. When I was in San Diego in November, my boss mentioned that she's making a cork board with real corks that she collects from the bottles of wine she drinks. Evelyn and I decided to help her out and we saved the corks from the 2 bottles we had in our hotel room. November. Jeez, I guess it's been a while since I cleaned out my purse.
two identical (and very nice) pens from Technology Sciences Group
Crap. That means I *did* pick up my sister's pen. They were promotional giveaways from the company my Dad works for, and I swore up and down that I didn't have hers, she must have lost it. Guess I was wrong.
a small cardboard box containing a shower cap
Must have grabbed that from the hotel we stayed at in Phoenix in December. Again, I need to clean out my purse more often.
a ticket stub from a Phoenix Coyotes/Nashville Predators hockey game at Glendale Arena in Phoenix
Sigh. That was a good time. The game was great, and I got to see Wayne Gretzky behind the bench. Check out the blurry guy in the yellow circle. Yes! WAYNE!
(Apparently I had reached the limit of my camera's zoom function.)
Oh, and double joy. Who dropped the puck at the start of the game? None other than Phil Esposito! He got a standing ovation. (When I was a little girl, we lived in Sault Ste. Marie, right down the street from Phil and Tony's parents. Cool, eh?)
And while I'm on a hockey tangent. Did you check out any of the All-Star Break coverage last night? The Eastern/Western Conference young players game, or any of the skills competion? It was pretty interesting. I caught the CBC coverage and even with that amazing display of hockey prowess and speed, the thing that really struck me the most is that Marc Messier is. The. Sexiest. Bald. Guy. EVER.
8 ottawapolice.ca temporary tattoos
Those have been kicking around in my purse since Police and Fire Services Day at the Carp Farmers' Market this past summer. The girls got to sit on a police motorcycle and the cycle's owner gave them each a handful of the tatoos.
4 kleenexes, 3 of which are pristine
No explanation necessary. I'm a mom.
a pair of Little Mermaid plastic clip-on earrings
OK, so it was a pretty cheesy excuse for a blog post. But it works for me.
What's floating around in your purse?
