[Insert Hail to the Chief here]

Yeah. Obama? He's going to be our next president. I for one couldn't be happier.

I don't think that's how you get Hillary's disgruntled supporters. (I like how an "aide" claims that McCain knew about this before Palin was picked. And the IMPORTANT PART is that she's keeping the baby, because they are Strong On Family Values. ...teen pregnancy and sex before marriage is now under the Family Values umbrella? Huh!) And this rumor, if true, would be absolutely devastating to her campaign. What a soap opera!)

ION, I have just made my own messenger bag and it's kick ass. Pics to come once I have my camera charged now under the cut!

My problem with available laptop bags are that they either aren't big enough (I have a 17" laptop) or they aren't cool or hip looking, or they are KA-RAY-ZEE expensive. I found one that was totally cool, but it was over 200 bones. Um, no.

I was at Urban Outfitters with my sister the other day and saw this cool looking rug. (I've been looking for material that was either pop-art or graffiti inspired. That's hard to come by!) So anyway. This rug. PERFECT.



(These next 2 pictures are over-exposed, so the color isn't as bright and I'm too lazy to fix it. *G*)


The back view with the flap opened


The interior, lined with foam padding and an extra pocket in front of the laptop sleeve for papers, etc. I made an inner pocket for my charger.

Now, I still have to hand tack down the lining, so that's why it's puffy and wonky looking. I was just excited at how it turned out. :D I want to add a thin, stiff strip of leather inside so I can hook pens to it and keep them out of the way.

I also need to add the velcro closure to the front and a velcro tab over the laptop compartment, but that's all handwork for later tonight.

Yay Mormon-arts! Hahaha. If anyone wants the pattern, I made a diagram up in photoshop so I could remember the dimensions. I couldn't find ANYTHING online, so that's my contribution to the world at large.

HERE YOU GO:



(Happy birthday to romanyg and mere_ubu!)

Thank you!

Yeah - I'm calling total bullshit on any McCain peeps knowing about that. There's NO WAY. Also, how much you wanna bet that come GOP Convention "I accept!" speech that Palin is no longer the Veep candidate?

Wouldn't surprise me. I'm thinking we've got a "For the sake of my family, I am bowing out of the race." speech from Palin in our future.

I can't imagine who they can get now. The gov. of Kansas would have been my first choice, but I guess the GOP wanted to go with the insane route. Huh.

The Gov of Kansas, Kathleen Sibelius, is a Democrat. I don't think they were gonna pick her.

Yeah, she was on Obama's list.



(Um, stoney- I hope you don't mind me reading your lj! I really enjoyed your Twilight recaps, and I kind of got sucked in with your posts on LDS.)

Okay, then who is the Republican from Kansas? Or am I completely confusing the governor with someone else?

(Thanks for the heads up)

I think you are confused. There are no Kansas republicans with National potential right now...

LUrk away! Or pop up, either or. :D

Yeah, I've just gotten my wires crossed on that one.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
