Um, when I said "Help me", I wasn't counting on a three way TIE.

Well, I love my internet folks, but y'all are about as helpful as teats on a bull when it comes to helping me pick out my new handbag!

And I do apologize if I've offended anyone with my Southern colloquiallism - but I'm positively full of them. Or it. I can't decide which.

So the results of the highly scientific poll are as follows:

29 votes total

(I used to have a LOT more readers than this!?! See what happens when you quit writing regularly? eek!)

~The zebra print was the lowest with 31% of the votes.
~The giraffe print garnered 34%, and
~The slouchy hobo also received 34% of the votes.

(And you have no idea how incredibly taxing it was on my pea-brain to come up with THREE separate descriptors for the outcome of the voting.) Somehow I really felt the need to explain myself on that and I have no idea why - maybe it's because I am highly desirous of getting my writing mojo back???

So ya know what? I'm going to live on the edge and buy two of them. The Giraffe print ($22.90 - the most expensive of the three, but seriously? Under $30! A steal, if you ask me), because I fell in El-OH-Vee-EEh with it when I saw it and the white slouchy hobo ($16.90 and I don't expect to have it past the abuse of the summer, because, well...I have 3 kids. 'Nuff said). Thank yew for yure support. (a la Ross Perot)

Next week, I'll be attending the Christian Book Expo in the Dallas - I'm hoping to gain some insight from "real" writers (unlike me - the pseudo-writer) and get myself back on some sort of writing schedule again. Once upon a time, I actually had writing aspirations. Then I had three kids and I had my aspirations kicked.

What is one thing you wish you had time to do for yourself that you don't? (And why aren't you making time for it???)

(and one last thing...I'm not sure I'm in love with this new comment form...is it a pain in the patootie? I'm thinking it's a pain...but your feedback is ever so welcome)

It's a pain in the patootie. ;)
Okay, I forgive you for picking the giraffe print, because you did after all choose the one I voted for, the slouchy hobo. :)

I'm w/Amber. On both cases. Don't like having to "register" to comment. But I forgive you because I DID choose the giraffe. LOL!!! :-D

Amber @ Classic Housewife said...

Hey, did you make a few tweaks to your blog, even since earlier, or am I just plain losing it? Regardless it's a good thing. ;)

"kicked my aspirations" scute. s :)
I wish I had time to.....get the haircut I've been putting off scheduling. sI know that sounds absurd, but apparently personal hygiene is the first to go when there isn't enough time in the day. sSo me and my split ends instead use our precious free time to read and write blog entries!

Yep, I think this comment form is a REAL pain in the patootie!s But I did it anyway, just for you, Karen.

I can see the draw in that you now will have access to email for commenters - one of my biggest reasons to leave Blogger when I did.s I think it's fine.s It's the same info I type in when I comment on a Wordpress blog - not a big deal for me.

Something I do not make enough time for is writing.s Serious writing.s I was going great for several months, but I am in a MAJOR slump and just can't get back to where I want to be.

Yes, I need to write more.
No, I do not love the new comment form. (I am forever having to write it twice because the first one gets lost since 'cancel' is before 'submit'.)

It's a little bit of a pain. I think last time I was just a guest because I didn't notice it had changed. Until it posted.s :)

On the purse front, I am totally on the lookout for a great animal print bag. Will have to check out your links!

I have the opposite problem most people do - I have time to do anything and everything. I am never low on time. The problem is that the pain prevents me from doing a lot of things I'd like to do.

I thought it was so funny that the three purses got such close votes.s You go girl!s A lady can always use two handbags (but if you're going to talk about cows teats you might as well just go ahead and call them purses!)
s
I am confused by the new comment system.s I never know what method to choose.s Lisa~
