Hermosa Beach

Beachgoers enjoying a warm sunny afternoon...

Hermosa Beach -- looking back at the shore.

Little birdie lost in deep thought -- hmmm, which human should I poop on?

Chloe Bag

I want this bag so badly. It is on sale for US$1,300. I know a) it's totally overpriced by like US$1,200, b) it's my one month's rent c) I won't care about the bag in a month. But right now, I want it so much! I can see myself as a globetrotting hotshot lawyer with my sharp suit and a Chloe bag. Ha, the opposing counsel will have no chance! But, alas, I am old enough that I can control my buying impulses. Hmm, maybe I should find a $20 imitation when I am in Hong Kong next...

Glamour Shot

Another self portrait. Aren't I cute?

K, I got this pic off of the BBC (Agence France-Presse) - it's a Persian cat at a kitty show in Taipei. I just want to hug it and kiss it, so adorable.

LV the Ugly

I was at the mall today. While I was on the escalator going to the second level, I couldn't help but notice the LV bag the lady in front of me was carrying. It looked like this (without the little multicolor key chain, which is extra).

The more I looked at it, the uglier and cheap it looked. LV purses are around $1000 each. IMO, they are nothing spectacular. I don't get it, why do women spend so much money on these purses. Do they really think LV purses such as the one above are beautiful or is it only to show off? If LV were a Walmart brand, would the same woman be carrying the ugly thing proudly on her arm? I almost got caught in the purse craze once -- I purchased a designer purse for $400. It was the dumbest thing I ever did -- I didn't care for it after a month. Now, it's sitting in my closet collecting dust. I would rather save the money and go traveling or eat a good meal or donate it to a good cause.
