All that was missing was a sword. . . . .

  1. I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of my black city bag from BalNY. This morning around 9:00 my doorbell rings. Still asleep, I pop up and make a mad dash out of the bedroom. Unfortunately, I didn't put my glasses on and ran right into the bedroom door. :cursing: Ouch! No pain, no gain, right? Then I continue down the hallway only to trip over a cat toy. At this point, all I can think is, "Please don't let the UPS guy leave!" I make it to the door and open it. The UPS man is looking down at his electronic gadget and mutters "Good morning" to me. I return the greeting and he looks up to have me sign for the package and goes, "HA!! I guess it IS still morning for YOU!". I suddenly realize I have bed hair, and when I say bed hair, I mean a super high ponytail resembling samurai hair. The fact that I'm Japanese and wearing all black only added to my ninja/warrior/crazy purse girl look. Then, I signed his thumb instead of the gadget, because I'm still without my contacts or glasses. Despite all this early morning humiliation, I couldn't be more pleased with my bag. Not to mention, the balenciaga box it was sent in is so nice. I'm such a sucker for packaging and literally took a few seconds just touching the box. I know my bag isn't quite as exciting as some of the newer styles and colors, but I just love it. I, also, want to THANK everyone who helped me with their thoughtful and considerate advice. I added the samurai photo just for you! Here she is. . . . . . .
