>>I call my purse a "bag," or sometimes my "pack,"
>>but I think that's just me.

I don't know if this is a regional or possibly age-related term, but I always saw purses being referred to as "pocket books".

I always called them coin purses as well with a straight face, until Stewie was shaving himself to be a swimmer, and from that day forth, I smile when I hear someone say it.

I've always known them to be a purse, or pocket book. I've also heard the term wallet, for a females purse.

I dont have any but my roommate has and old Khukuri knife and follows the superstition that it is bad luck to unsheath it without drawing blood, yours or anothers. The one and only time he showed me this knife he took it out, looked somewhat concerned about doing so, and then cut open the tip of his finger as his form of drawing blood with it. Needless to say, he has a nice knife that he does not get to use at all.

There must be some kind of a charm you can use over your house to keep the sharks from falling into your roof!

A "coin purse". Go figure.




It is also known as a "change purse".

>>One superstition that I do not personally have
>>but which many people do (and that annoys the
>>hell out of me ) is a belief in astrology.

Personally, I view my astrological sign in the same way I view my ethnicity, birth stone, or state flower: an amusing trivia bit, not without its symbolic or lesser magic uses, but not something that I actually vicariously live through either.

I am also a Gemini, but people don’t say all those annoying things like what you have mentioned.

The idea of having more than one personality is silly to me. I have one personality, and I am just ME.

I just like being a Gemini because I can celebrate my birthday in nice weather.

There are all kinds of things to carry with you and keep money in nowadays.

I keep a “wallet” inside my purse, and it has a separate part for coins, a separate part for paper money, and also has slots for credit cards and such. I like my purse contents to be organized, and it would annoy me to have money be loose in my purse.

Astrology is just gross. There are some topics that reek of ignorance to a degree that I no longer care about whatever benefits there may be in practicing conversation. I can taste the stink of the other person's mental laziness, and every time I do, I fear that I have somehow been infected by it. It's the same feeling I get around chatty xians, and what a doctor probably gets who forgets to put gloves on, and realize he has been exposed to a patient's blood, or a soldier who feels his lungs begin to sting, and starts flashing back to seminars about nerve-agent, and starts feeling around for his atropine injectors.

In this case, it is Psych-Agent, rather than nerve, blister, or blood agent--or a bio-hazard.

The answer is the same in every situation:

DECONTAMINATE!

This being said, I have read briefly and carefully on the subject, for the same reasons I own the Family Guy cartoon series. I think there is something to be learned SUBJECTIVELY from careful study of stupidity. The practice is to be avoided. The mechanics are to be understood for parallels with human behavior.

The only two pieces of information about this topic I can recommend are the quote at bottom, and an essay called "Signs of the Times" by Isaac Asimov. Everything else is shit. I don't doubt there are some great books out there about how to mindfuck someone out of this and that--I don't care. I've spent all the time I'm going to reading about this topic.

I recognize the usefulness of being adept at the language, as explained in the following quote from "Mostly Harmless." I refuse to take any notice or part in the shit, however, for the same reason I refuse to talk like a xian: STRATIFICATION.

I simply do not want to be surrounded with people who talk like shitheads--for whatever reason. I certainly don't want to impress them with verbal gymnastics, since that would just attract them.
I found this quote to be a fillip to senses, though. At least, though I choose to distance Astrology, it is still refreshing to see an articulate description of a person who simply exploits the mechanics.




"I know that astrology isn't a science, said Gail. Of course it isn't. It's just an arbitrary set of rules like chess or tennis or what's that strange thing you British play?
- Er, cricket? Self-loathing?
- Parliamentary democracy. The rules just kind of got there. They don't make any sense except in terms of themselves. But when you start to exercise those rules, all sorts of processes start to happen and you start to find out all sorts of stuff about people. In astrology the rules happen to be about stars and planets, but they could be about ducks and drakes for all the difference it would make. It's just a way of thinking about a problem which lets the shape of that problem begin to emerge. The more rules, the tinier the rules, the more arbitrary they are, the better. It's like throwing a handful of fine graphite dust on a piece of paper to see where the hidden indentations are. It lets you see the words that were on the piece of paper above it that's now been taken away and hidden. The graphite's not important. It's just the means of revealing their indentations. So you see, astrology's nothing to do with astronomy. It's just to do with people thinking about people."
- Douglas Adams, Mostly Harmless

Don´t be fooled.

They call it wallet. It isn´t separated by genders as it is in GB. Over there it is all wallet.

If you choose to be fooled by this "coin purse" thing that was invented here, you´d have to repeat yourself to their: "Whet did you esk?" one thousand times.

They can´t even take the piss properly. Too lousy. Annoying though. I ought to be the last to deny.

C´mon. How often do people talk about purses? In America where fashion or anything related to what one wears or carries isn´t even in the dictionary? (I am not sorry and do look at the photo of that bag posted somewhere above... honestly, all it takes is a little taste! I could write a song starting with just about how wrong that buckle is... face it, you don´t talk about these things, you paint dragons on your denim trousers for fack sakes) Among males? When did once if that become always? Pocket books. Is this when I laugh out loud? Can´t be.

It doesn´t matter in what you believe in. Superstition is belief. Belief for its lack of possible reasonable explanation brings on a chain on events. If you keep thinking that an opened umbrella in the house is powerful enough to ruin your life, then it is. It is all in your head. Simple as that.
