I was reading the Mason Dixon Knitting blog today, and learned about a new knitting magazine that Mason Dixon said was making it’s debut today at Borders and Barnes and Noble.
So, since I love a good knitting magazine, and since Borders is in deep doo-doo financially (and yes that is the technical term) I thought I would drive over to Borders and do my part to stimulate the economy. I need to keep this Borders afloat, because otherwise where will I go to purchase knitting magazines and F1 Racing Magazine in the same place?
But when I got there, no new knitting magazine. Tragic. Especially since now I was in the Shopping Mood. This is a dangerous situation. And then, I found the most perfect, most me thing in the store: A messenger bag. A messenger bag with skulls on it. Skulls in pastel colors like purple and pink and a couple shades of green.
It had everything. First it was a bag. I love bags. I am something of an Imelda Marcos of bags. I won’t tell you how many I have, that would be embarrassing, but I have a lot. More than a lot of people, but I am sure not as many as some others.
Second it had skulls on it. I am a big fan of pirates and the Jolly Roger (all thanks to Orlando Bloom and the Pirates of the Caribbean). They make me look really badass. I realize you can’t hear the sarcastic tone in my voice there so you will have to imagine it, but they do. They make me look really badass. Somewhere I have a pattern for knitting a skull into a sweater. Just you wait until I get around to that mister.
So, long story short, I bought the bag. It is of course too small to carry around my laptop, but it looks really cool. And frankly, sometimes that’s enough.
