But that 's not their "job."

Touchdown!'s your NFL purse ban game-changer...

Did you see the slew of comments from disgruntled females slamming the NFL for imposing the soon-to-be implemented ban on almost all purses and packs in the stadiums?  here's one example:

I can understand why there were countless remarks showing disgust about having to display one's tampons in an NFL-approved clear bag, BUT the good news is ...there are ways to deal with this problem and avoid the pain.

Us gals don't have to like the rules, but we do have to live with them. And now we can ...without sacrificing our pride...OR our privacy.
Smart gals talk to me...
stop on by...and help YOURSELF.

for pete's sake, be safe on spring break!

(hmm....who's Pete anyway?  oh well...;) 

Ah spring...!  you turn around and the season's upon us. ...after a long winter of gray skies and snowy days we're ready to release our pent up frustrations and blast off on a long-awaited spring soujourn. Maybe you're road tripping or you're sending your student on their first solo trip (well...ok..."solo" with all their friends ;).. or maybe it's simply a rendezvous into the city with Sue...

Wherever you go, it bears repeating... preparation can save you from potential pitfalls. So why take unnecessary risks? There may not be any live T-rex left in the world, but there are plenty of 'predators' just ready and willing to help themselves to your things. If you let them. Of course all you savvy travellers know just the right things to do to minimize the possibilities of problems with your valuables. You:
  • never keep your wallet in a purse or bag, or even in a back pocket
  • avoid flash by keeping expensive jewelry and accessories at home 
  • only carry the minimum amount of cash and cards that you need
  • keep copies of important documents in a separate place in case of emergency
But no matter what you do... the unthinkable happens. Here's a nifty article on what should (and shouldn't) be in your wallet (or PortaPocket! ;). It may be useful info that can be a help:

Where are you going this spring? Let us know in the comments below!

New Year...New Leg. Serving Up Some Wacky Wishes for 2013...

I have a bone to pick.  Call it a femur, or even a fibula. No matter... just feeling a little passed over here and thought I must share. Just when I thought I'd finally be getting that leg up on's a trip to the compost pile once more. *gah!* ...
As those Shark Tank fans in the crowd probably noticed, there was a pseudo-PortaPocket-ish product featured on the Dec 4 holiday special, which replayed Dec 14, 2012. As a result, it wasn't too surprising that I got a whole bunch of calls after the shows with supporters saying wtf, and some even confused that Partie Poche (just who can spell that exactly...?) was actually somehow my patented PortaPocket.
For those who've kept up here, you may know I have tried out for Shark Tank 2x and had a producer quite interested. Yet, at the end of the day, I apparently got passed over for a one-dimensional "version" that has limited utility and no patent protection, but DID have a movie star glam gal who channels Gwyneth Paltrow. Ah, the trials and tribulations of being on the far side of 40 and raven haired instead. Can't turn back that clock and never felt like a blonde, so I'll just try the next best thing...
I'll wear a giant leg on my back.

So now I've got a video in the works...showcasing wacky reactions of people on the street when they see me and my appendage sauntering down the sidewalk. Will have to admit to occasional glee as when one experiences those rock star moments ... got pushed to the head of the several blocks-long line for a music mogul in town, since he I hear...has a foot fetish. ;) Not even sure who it was, but man, twas a little interesting to be sure!  Plus one gets to be the point of so much attention for photo requests...and then there was that guy who fell up the down escalator trying to take my picture at ORD.  SO many little time. Such fun with the necks spinning around a la the exorcist when people spy my form and do those inevitable double-takes.
NEVER a dull moment to be sure.
Just wait 'til I get another one sticking out of the roof of my car...
