preposterously awesome

We all know I have a coat problem. Slightly less well-known is my bag problem, which is particularly incomprehensible because I don’t usually carry one.

I would, however, give up all the other rarely used bags in favor of never using this one:

Seriously, I do not know what level of kick-ass one has to conquer in order to deserve one of those, but I have major, major bag lust. But of course, what color would I get it in? The brown seems somehow sexier, but the black, more practical! Insofar as a black leather 4-way hip holster thigh strap steampunk beyond-comprehension-awesome bag is practical at all, I mean.

Also, I would like those abs and hips that go along with the bag, please.

They’re available (the bags, not the abs) here, from this Etsy seller. Dude, they are just SO AWESOME. Costly, but they’re hand-made and for the sheer amount of awesome involved, they seem worth it. Of course, I would expect it to last forever.

Maybe for Christmas? :)

why is the rum gone?

Or more relevantly, why does the to-do list never seem to get *shorter*?

Speaking of which (heh) I wonder if I should put together a 2013 calendar. Not today, anyway.

But speaking of calendars, I’m putting the Kickstarter calendar together and putting out one last call to see if anybody’s got photos they’d be willing to share, since the theme of it seems to be “CE Murphy Urban (forgive me) FANtasy”, and numerous fan-type people have offered up photos from places my urban fantasy novels are set. I’m particularly looking for:

- a photo of Thunderbird Falls, outside of Anchorage, AK
- a photo of the Fremont Troll in Seattle, WA
- a city skyline of Manhattan

and will pay with photo credits and a copy of the calendar. I know it’s not much, but it’s what I can do. :)

My NO DOMINION proof isn’t here yet. *hops impatiently*
