Baggage

12 Oct

I watched the entire season of Girls on HBO in just three days.

My husband watched some of the episodes with me, and things that I thought were hilarious, he didn’t blink an eye at, but instead looked at me in bewilderment.

One of the scenes I especially enjoyed was in Episode 3 (“All Adventurous Women Do”), where Shoshanna and Hannah are watching a dating show called Baggage. Each of the contestants air their small, medium and large baggage (i.e. “she spends $1k on her weave a month” or “she plans her wedding after the first date”), and are eliminated by the suitor based on their baggage.

Shoshanna and Hannah share their baggage. Watch the clip.

What would be in your baggage?

I made my husband play with me as we listed our own baggage and each others’ baggage. Either a really fun or really fight-provoking game…

And here it is:

My Baggage:

From My P.O.V. From His P.O.V.
Small Unknowledgeable re: news. Needs attention whenever I am doing something.
Medium Tomboy. Doing a favor has to be accompanied with an immediate quid-pro-quo.
Large Stubborn. She hates being told when she does something wrong – will fight over it.

His Baggage:

From My P.O.V. From His P.O.V.
Small Momma’s boy. Wastes time doing things (i.e. Craigslist/Wikipedia) when supposed to be doing other stuff.
Medium Always makes it sound like he is right, even when he has no clue. Often construed as arrogance. Yells at the tv / Beats himself up about his driving / Sounds arrogant when isn’t trying to be.
Large Takes forever to get ready / is never on time. Mamma’s boy.

Pictures are of a bag I recently made for myself — I kept it small-ish to limit the amount of “baggage” I carry with me.

    Thanks for visiting, Abbey! Yes, the bag is my own, simple design. I bought that fabric a few years ago from a Crate & Barrel outlet store.

    Love the bag!!! Very cute! What fabrics did you use with the denim/jeans? Was this bag from your own design?
