It's late....

I should be packing...

But I'm not....

I start and then, it turns into such a mess, and that mess starts to look at me.

Do you have any idea how much CRAP a ten year old can cram into her tiny girly desk drawers? A LOT! A LOT of crap.

Instead I'm here. Listening to Pat Benatar--I need a hero. And I do.

Did you know that you can search for a specific exact thing inside a blog title URL like this:

"cupcakes" (Just like that. No spaces.)

Huh? Didja?

Cuz I so totally could have used that little tidbit last week when I was looking for awesome photos of awesome cupcakes.

And Didja know that it's totally hilarious to type in "Carissa needs" into the google fun machine?

My favorite one is this:

"Carissa needs to wipe off 2/3 of her make up" I do? That would leave me with only face, cuz girlz, I don't wear MAKE-UP!


"Carissa- needs two surgeries and Ive been told that each one will cost about $12000 along with an airline tickets and hotel stays" And that is funny of course, because uh...I just had TWO surgeries, but that makes it sound like I should have gotten new boobs, butt and a lovely trip to Costa Rica out of it!! (All I got was the screw back in a pee cup).

This is good:

"Villa Carissa needs to be cancelled at least 60 days prior in order to avoid penalties." I'd say. Villa Carissa is closed right now due to an infestation of boxes and crap avoidance...but it will re-open in Oregon! Feel free to make your reservations now!

Last one I promise:

"Carissa needs to wake up and realize it may be her husband next! " It's so true. He could succumb at any minute to the late night blogging addiction. What would we do if both of us became Mouse Potatoes?

Geez, wasn't that fun? Your turn. Let me know if you enjoy it as much as I just did.

PS. I totally stole this idea from someone, and I cannot for the life of me and my 1:30AM brain remember where I saw it? MerlotMom? Bejewell? Sorry if it was YOU...I suck.

And another PS.
I made something beautiful today. (Yes I was supposed to be packing...but LOOK at this!)

I did that one time, and my name was associated with p*rn. I was mortified.

Well I googled... and the results:
Sarah needs:
- A Cold Shower
- Self-Esteem
- A Date
- Answers

I guess that about sums it up? Random.

THE BAG. IS STUNNING. Gorgeous. Beautiful. You've got talent - I'm insanely jealous!

Also, your packing pictures make me want to hyper-ventilate. (Is that a word?). I'm moving back to school on Sunday and have NOTHING DONE... eek. I think I'll go pack now. Or read some more blogs...

The bag is beautiful...and as for the packing it will come...I was fortunate to be able to pack over several months...but in the last few weeks...I Just Didn't Want To...Get some sleep..

First, I am so stealing this idea... provided I remember to actually do it one day on the blog...

Second... I heart that bag. Much more beautiful than plain old cardboard boxes anyway. I have zero talent with that type of thing.

Jaysi said...

That is hysterical! I love it. I will have to try it out later. Good luck with the packing!

April said...

Oh oh oh I want that bag!! I am obsessed with red and I love black & red together.

P.S. Packing sucks! Hey, look! "P.S." DOES stand for Packing Sucks!

Threeundertwo said...

I feel your pain. I really really hate packing. Except the feeling of victory when many things get thrown away. Good luck with all that.

LOVE the bag! You have such great fabrics!

Melissa Ann Browning said...

I also did the google... Apparently, Melissa needs a break.. needs prayers.... needs the internet... needs a lot of guidance.. and needs [something very naughty] .... :)

Hmmm... not to off, I suppose! packing looks like a nightmare - so sorry. But the bag is lovely! You needed to make something pretty to counteract all that packing-ugliness in your world right now. Carissa needs balance.

Alice said...

I love the bag you made. Especially the colors you used.

I tend to put stuff off until the last minute also. Your finest work comes out then!

Jaime said...

Well, apparently Jaime needs "to grow up and stop making all of those horrible faces..." and "a lip wax and lypo everywhere." Hahaha...

LingoVise Says... said...

definitely Don't envy your packing. Ugh! Looks like you're making good progress though. Have you found a house out there yet?

Love the bag!

Claremont First Ward said...

Beautiful bag. What is the google fun machine? I totally did not know about the search did you find out?

Good luck packing today.....:)

Daisy said...

Bag is gorgeous! It could carry you through the packing ordeal. I know the 10-yr-old girl thing; mine was 9 going on 10 last time we moved.

Jenni said...

A couple of things!

1. I hope you got your packing done okay.

2. That bag? Gorgeous! Love it! I can't even make anything. Not even dinner. I suck.

3. I am filing that "Jenni says" google blog idea for a rain day.

4. You have won some fabulous and major awards on my blog. When you have some time...come pick them up!

Amz said...

That's MY bag and I LOVE it! I love it even more knowing you sacrificed valuable packing time to make it! You are amazing and I will miss you!

Oh my heck! I was featured. And it didn't hurt or anything!
