Let’s Talk Current Events

•  According to InStyle Magazine the number one, most coveted, purse for next fall is the Chanel Mosaic Bag which costs $9,000.

Are YOU coveting it?

Because I, for one, am not.

I realize $9,000 is only equivalent to one or two professional camera lenses …

But expensive lenses last longer than a designer handbag stays in style.

(I say all of the above as as a woman who likes, and appreciates, a well made bag.)

If you’d like to save money, InStyle also mentions the upcoming Fendi Peekaboo Clutch which only runs $4,150.

By the way, I’m quite sure I’ll see several of the Chanel Mosaic Bags floating around The OC next fall.

•  Jared, from Subway, had his house raided by police.

News reports allege the raid is related to a child pornography case involving a Jared employee.

Exact details aren’t clear.

There are already all sorts of inappropriate “six inch” and “foot long” jokes being made.

Meanwhile, Subway has removed Jared from their website and they appear to have severed (??) all ties to him.

•  In a 2005 deposition, Bill Cosby admitted he purchased quaaludes with the intent to give them to women he wanted to “have sex” with.

In his mind, apparently, drugging unsuspecting women into oblivion and then “having sex” with the while they were drugged and/or unconscious is not rape?

I wonder if he’d feel the same way if a man twice his size drugged HIM and then “had sex” with him while he was unconscious?

What’s happened to so many of our celebrities?

Why do they feel they’re above the law?

Why do they lack morals?

There’s something SO WRONG with the celebrity culture in our country.

•  South Carolina seems to be moving towards completely removing the Confederate flag.

Honestly, until a few weeks ago (when the Charleston Church Shooting happened), I didn’t even know they were still flying the Confederate flag.

What century are we in?

•  Apparently, no one wants anything to do with Donald Trump anymore.

Businesses are cutting ties with him right and left.

The surprising thing here really is that anyone ever DID want anything to do with Donald Trump.

(Just my opinion, of course!  But really, with that HAIR how could anyone feel anything but repulsion?)

•  Amazon has announced “Amazon Prime Day” and I admit, I got a little excited.  

I wonder if I could get all my holiday shopping done in July?

I definitely get my money’s worth from my Amazon Prime membership.  I buy almost everything online.

Prime pays for itself tenfold.  (And no, I’m not getting anything from Amazon for writing this.)

—  These are the things in my head this week.

How about you?

    I love a nice handbag and have my eye on one by Marc Jacobs that’s in the mid 400’s-sounds like a bargain! By the way I saw beautiful leather bags in Italy that I swear were the brand you purchased!

    Donald Trump also has orange skin!

    Bill Cosby is an accused rapist. Anyone else would have been in prison by now. The double standard is horrible.

    I don’t have Amazon Prime but have considered it-I’m just now sure I order enough to benefit. I usually order about once a month.

    Sometimes I think life in the South must be really different from Ca. I thought the Confederate flag was a relic from the Civil War. What does your son say?

      My son is in Texas.
      There are some definite cultural differences.

    What does it say about us (as in USA) that The Donald is 2nd in the polls?
    I’m so not looking forward to election season. Ugh.
