The other night I went over to a friend's house. She was having a purse party. A purse party is a party - where you can buy knock off designer purses. (The only thing that would be better would be a shoe party.) So I ended up buying a knock off Coach bag pictured here. But instead of 600 bucks I paid a mere 120. (SO - when I spill nail polish inside it - it won't matter so much.) I love it. I love it. I love it. And it holds 3 pairs of shoes - a good thing.

Anyways, while I was at this purse party there were some girls there I haven't met before. One of them somehow got onto the topic of micro chips being the mark of evil and how in the future we were all going to be microchipped at birth and no person who has one will be allowed into heaven... you see where this is going. I am not judgmental - really. But it was so hard not to ask her if she had a great big bowl of Crazyios for breaky. I was biting my tongue the entire night. Then she actually went on to explain something about how in the year 2012 (I think that was the year, maybe I should have written it down) the world was going to end. At that point I said - shit. I'd better go buy some more purses while I have the chance. Big purses. (To hold all my shoes - since I'm totally bringing them with me into space right before the world implodes.)

In fact - if the world really was ending in 5 years - there's a lot of things I'd be doing right now and I'm pretty sure none of them would help get me into heaven.

"a MERE 120"...

you chicks kill me...

elizabeth said...

But Slyde! It holds THREE pairs of shoes. Important.

She's right.

No one implanted with a microchip will ever get into heaven.

The Pearly Gates have metal detectors, yo!

V-chips, they're coming!

also, 2012 is the end of the Mayan Calendar, which TECHNICALLY marks the end of a cycle, not the end of the world. It's also the name of a RUSH album, and i hate Geddy Lee.

You don't have to eat Crazios to believe in Conspiracies...lol.

big brother is watching YOUUUU!!!

elizabeth said...

Yikes.

Okay - phew - I've got a few more years to build my spaceship... lol (but she really WAS a nutter - she had all kind of odd ideas...)

Did you notice what kinds of purses SHE bought? That's the real test! ; )

I'm so jealous of your coach bag!!!! I need better friends that have cool purse parties!

Yes, how many times have I heard the whole, they are tracking us from space and you know we have secret invisable bar codes on us talk - though usually from GUYS, sad, lonely guys who will never get a date because they think too much about bar codes.

I was going $120 for a PURSE, do you know how many really good vibrators you can get for that (much less $600). I mean, I love my Fossil bags, but obviously I am in a different league when it comes to purses (and probably shoes - I was thinking, "Three pairs, but why would I want to put 1/2 of all my shoes in one bag?")

elizabeth said...

RLL - Yep. She bought some crazy metallic one that I assume she think will work like tinfoil if she places it on her head (stops them from hearing your thoughts you know...)

beth - lmao. You rock! (Do you know how many vibrators would FIT in that bag... might have a hard time going through security at the airport though....)

i am the diva said...

i could set you up with those vibrators... :D

elizabeth said...

Boy... this post went sideways from talking about purses and crazy people... now it's all about sex toys. How DID that happen???

Kat said...

That's fucking hysterical!!!
As I was reading this I thought
'what the fuck does it matter cause we're all going to die in 2012 anyhow.'...and then I read the same shit. Too funny.

Cheezy said...

I thought the world was going to end in 2019... or is that the year of all that 'Rapture' stuff?

She sounds like a really unique individual :)

elizabeth said...

She was unique all right. In the sense that you wanted to "neek" away from her the first chance you got before she started chanting or trying to demonstrate her energy force and crazy mental powers... creeeeepy.

elizabeth said...

Kat. I'm confuzzzed. Did you know about this 2012 thing? How did that memo miss me?

Slyde said...

uh, diva... the rush album is 2112, not 2012....

damn non-rush fans....

elizabeth said...

Who's rush anyhoo?

Kat said...

Ask her about toto instead.

elizabeth said...

Now you're talking.
