SBD Sass, why is your pedometer in your purse and not on your hip??? LOL I just had to tease you about that! :)


I bought it one day and wore the darn thing for two days and it ended up in my purse. And there it lives. LOL! It's useless, but it keeps the time and so does my cell phone so I guess the pedo is really useless. haha

I carry a lot of crap just in case the end of the World comes. I get it from my mom...her purse is way worse than mine so I don't feel so bad.

I am so terrible at being a girl. I don't actually have a purse (actually, I have a few, but none that have anything in them right now). Every time I go out I usually have to grab everything I need and put it in my shoulder bag that I use for school.
