if you guys recall, i had an ostrich-eye-peeling-off drama a couple of weeks ago. well, i got a call from my SA today and she said "your bag is here!"....and i'm like, what bag? did DH surprised a bag for me to pick up (he did that one time in the past)? is my Blue Brighton here? did i special order a new bag? it just made my slow wednesday a very exciting one all of a sudden! then she tells me, "silly, you forgot? it's your fuschia ostrich HAC we sent out for repair"....oh, that bag! i didn't expect it to be back soon! anyways, BH did a good job (it didn't have to be sent to paris) and when i was at the store, I met US Hermes Vice-President Tony (can't pronounce the last name nor can i spell it) who's in from NY just for a day. really nice guy! oh well, i met the VP and i got a "new" bag and i got me a new mini-ulysses in gold. what else can i ask for?
