Blogfest Day 11 ~ K is for Kangaroo Keeper …

If you are an animal lover , stop right there ! This is definitely NOT the kangaroo you are looking for . This is not that large , muscular-hipped , with a long , thick , sinuous tail , huge feet and big ears that swivel about on a deer-like head , creature that you are expecting to read about . Get that thought out of your head – pronto ! Exit this post – immediately !

If you're a "desperate-female-whose-bag-is-always-upside-down-in-spite-of-being-in-possession-of-that-oh-so-wonderful-invention-which-is-guaranteed-by-Glomail-to-ensure-that-the-contents-of-your-bag-are-orderly-and-readily-accessible" — then you'll identify with this post .

Despite having a kangaroo keeper (kk) , my bag remains cluttered . Must be something wrong with me . I still collect a stash of envelopes . The only difference being that there's a sort of organised chaos amongst the contents . Look , I'll admit that the kk is quite handy … when used correctly … So while I was thinking about the "correct usage" of the kk , I had a brainwave . Maybe one of those uber-geeks , you know the whizz kids who are hot on gadgetry ? One of those brainiacs ? Could invent a uber-futuristic electronic gadget , to help organize the organizer (does that make sense ? sounds kinda nutty?)

Anyway this hand-held device would operate in a similar manner to that clipped , monotonous , hypnotic , staccato-styled voice you hear on the telephone , when you are put on hold . You know that dead-alive voice that says : The initial command will be : your.bag.needs.organizing.immediately.please.comply.  *giggles*

Maybe a procedure of some sort , as follows :

1. To find out the status of your contents , press once . You have 2 options : option one — ; option two —

2. If you choose option one , then you have 3 further options : Option 1 –basic tidy technique — Option 2 — advanced tidy technique — Option 3 — the simple truth —

step one — put some time aside

step two — focus on the task at hand

step three — work in a relaxed atmosphere

step four — avoid distractions

step five — empty all the contents onto a clear surface

    Mish, you crack me up! My purse is always such a mess! Why is it that the thing we want is ALWAYS under everything else?
    Happy K day!

      Hey Tara ~~ I really don’t know ~ your guess is as good as mine ! 🙂

        That was funny! Purses are the dark abysses in our lives for sure.

          Absolutely ! Just when I think I’ve figured it out , it’s back to square one , in a shambles *sighs*
          Enjoy the rest of A~Z Challenge ! 🙂

    That was hilarious!! 😀
    Honestly though, I doubt there's anything in the world that can help us keep our purses/bags organized. I've tried a dozen options, organized and reorganized them a zillion times, but there's always this one time you're in a hurry, and your purse is in shambles again. : 😛
    Great post! Love the blog! 🙂 🙂

      Hey Pencil Girl ~ just can’t keep my bag tidy … mmm , I’m sure there must be some women who have mastered the art of doing so … thanks for the visit and hope you’ll pop in again ! 🙂 🙂

    haha! You got me all giggly. I have never seen this thing, so I am going to have to google it ;-).
    My bag is filled with receipts I think I need to keep, until they are popping out everytime I get into my bag… I finally end up tossing them all by the fistful into the trash.

    • mish on April 14, 2011 at 6:28 pm

      LOL !! I know the feeling all too well !! I hoard envelopes until the bag is bursting at the seams … and that’s beside the various other miscellaneous items that seem to find a “home” in my bag *shakes head * .

    This is so true. I can never find anything in my purse. But organizing it is the last thing I want to do. I think I may do it semi-annually or when it's time for a purse change. Very funny post!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog on the Challenge, too!

      It never ceases to amaze me that we cannot do a simple thing like keep a bag tidy , yet women are good at multi-tasking ? Thanks for popping in Susan ! 🙂
