friday five :: what's it like?

It's threatening to be another sleep-deprived night, as my hip is keeping me awake. So ... I thought I'd do this Friday Five, provided courtesy of Kristine.

What is your keyring like?
It's the key fob for my car.

What is your purse/bag/briefcase like?
At the moment, I switch between a black L.L. Bean diaper bag (if I have Daniel with me) or a black, leather purse by The Sak (which I bought the day after I found out I was pregnant with Daniel).

What is your wallet like?
Black, leather, Coach. I've had it for a number of years, and it's still in really good shape. I get obsessive about wallet design; it has to be really intuitively arranged and easy for me to get to everything, but not too big. I love this one.

What is your mouse pad like?
It's one Steve brought home from work. It celebrates the June 2000 initial public offering of the company where he works. Sexy!

What are the curtains in your bedroom like?
They're a heavy, mossy green velvet. We added them at a time when we were being told that having a dark room at night helps with fertility. I don't know if they helped, but they do a very good job of blocking out the sun (and covering the old Venetian blinds).

The one I carry now is brown and black, roomy and made of expensive, high-quality synthetic materials. The brand is only available through trade shows and online, I just happened to stumble on it (new) at an antique store and fell in love with it! It gets lots of compliments.
