Al-E's Gotta Brand New Bag

Look what I got in the mail last week!

It is from my bestie, McMommy! She showed off one that she got for her birthday and sent me one for being her on-call photoshopper (it sounds better than Blog-Button-Bitch). Isn't it supercute!?! I use it all the time. And if you know me, I have tons of bags but this one is so it has amazing amounts of pockets.

Now, McMommy has gone and outdone herself! She has started her own business venture of monogramming, which I'm totally crazy about! Go over to and look at the cool bags, jewelry, housewares...everything personalized. My preppy heart sings as my eyes drool at the catalogue. I can't decide if I like the Sorbet Swag bag, the travel cases, or the Nottingham collection...okay all of it! The cool thing is that you can customize all of your bags with specific monogramming, colors, ribbons, etc. So if I wanted all green all the time...that could happen! This is mondo exciting!

Go over and visit her and see what is up...tell her I sent ya! I sound like a little country store proprietor!

When KW saw this picture, he said, "It looks like you are the Emergency Response Team for Southern Needs!" I totally could see it: my cool pockets stuffed with prepared grits, mini jugs of sweet tea, containers of sweet potato casserole, rations of pound cake, and chick-fil-a coupons. HELP ROAMING SOUTHERNER HELP!!! My heart is too clear and blood pressure too normal...I need fried okra STAT!

Dun Da Duhn! The ROAMING SOUTHERNER to the rescue!

CK Trivia:
1.) what song am I mocking in the title? (1 CK pt.)
2.) who sang it originally (2 CK pts.)
3.) what 1993 comedy aptly featured this song during a montage (5 Ck pts.)

"Papa's Got a Brand-New Bag" by James Brown

The movie!?!? I know I've seen it, but I can't think of it.

3 pts to R&WP

Adcock Circus said...

#3 - Mrs Doubtfire???

The Roaming Southerner said...

Dang, Adcock!?! Got it!

I might have to put a ban on you two!

5 Pts....Everytime I hear that song I think of Robin Williams in drag. Can't be helped.

Adcock Circus said...

Love Mrs. Doubtfire, can't wait till my boys can see it!
This may be a little before your time... but it was also in the 1987comedy Summer School - another one of my favs.

The Roaming Southerner said...

No, I'm aware of summer school...that is why I put 1993! I can see you are a formidable adversary, Adcock.

amanda said...

ok well i guess i am glad i didn't get in on this one first.

my guess?

janie's got a gun.

and it was on full house in 1993.

oh well :)

Adcock Circus said...

I figured a gal from Georgia who spent some time in Greenville, SC had to be one smart cookie. My side of the fence - lived in Macon, Ga high school & college ... Greenville, Sc 4 years for hubby's residency. Looking forward to future trivia!

McMommy said...

I SUCK at your trivia game!!!! I don't even have one stinkin' point yet!!!

Can I just say....I love the bag! This is the first time I am seeing it! I had no idea how it would come out...but I likey!!

Buffalo Betty said...

What Friends star rocked the short shorts on 90210?

The Roaming Southerner said...

Matthew Perry!?! Ah, the stems on Chandler.

Thanks for challenging me, Betty! I had to think about that one:

I thought it was Matthew Perry but to check with common sense I thought, "Obv. it couldn't be Ross-he isn't hot enough for 90210. Joey is, but I think he would be a little ethnic looking (and young) I went for the Hollywood-raised kid (or his dad is an actor, at least) and am going for Chanandler Bong."

Erin said...

I LOVE the bag! And I love the Chickfila coupons inside it...mmmm...a few more days and I will indulge in a chickfila!!!

Mark Salinas said...

Very cool, do I see some pipes there in the pose?

The Roaming Southerner said...

I wish! Those are the glamorous shades that come in my delux 1988 built apartment! At least the pipes would be hard core and industrial...NO, I am rocking the casbah, baby

Wendi said...
