Fabulous 80's Purse and Bangs and Alice

I just found that there are purses for sale on Ebay. I have never used Ebay before and was puttering around there one day a couple of weeks ago - and stumbled across the category. So I ordered 2 - a black Kenneth Cole Reaction tote something or's cute and a Fossil leather hobo purse, it looked brown.

I haven't received the Kenneth Cole bag yet, but I did receive the Fossil. First, I don't think it was really a Fossil despite the sewn in label, etc. Second, it so was not brown! It was coral - orange pink. No kidding. And the style, I thought was cute - the bag was smaller than I thought and 80's pink leather.

I can't use it. Really. I already live in a town where 80's white trash fashion is normal for some - just walk into the only popular bar in town and wait about 10 - you will see what I am talking about. I can't risk blending in - I have a constant need to separate myself from here - I use the phrase "I am from the Bay Area/San Jose" quite a bit. I need people to know. I need to have it tattooed on my forehead. Okay, my forehead is covered with my cheeks. Whatever.

Speaking of my forehead covered with bangs...I need your help over the next 5 months. I have tried over and over again to grow out my bangs - but always get frustrated in months 2 and 3 and give up and cut them. I am determined to get past it and grow them out. I have always had bangs, my whole life. I want to see if the grass is greener on the other side. I am going to do it this time. And I promise before I pick up those scissors or make that hair appointment, I will call Carol, Rish or Maggie and you can make sure I am not going to do anything drastic...

Oh - can I tell you how happy I am that Alice Radio 97.3 in San Francisco now has a "Listen Live" link...I can now listen to my favorite morning show - because all the morning shows around here sucks, as my sister would say, big fat wookey!

Any why isn't there spell check on here?? I have to preview & post, copy it into Word, check the spelling and correct on here. Sucky!
