I drink wine and yap endlessly with my best girl friends. It's better if we don't mention the shoes.
Cake is a serious weakness for me, and I am a total foodie. I get crazy if I don't eat ice cream and ride my bike everyday. As an avid birder, I'm always seeking wildlife sanctuaries while I travel for work. My old house is always screaming for my attention. Paint me! Fix me! Help, I'm leaking! There shouldn't be smoke here! I collapsed!
Hell froze over, bring salt! Interior design, art and architecture have remained consistent passions and my renovation projects bring me a huge amount of joy. It's pretty hard to find a date that's down with dearly departed Aunt Delores showing up in the middle of dinner, but I keep on trying.
Dating websites go great for me until I get asked, "So, what do you do for a living? Game over. I take my job very seriously, but not myself. Life is just too short!

A Psychic's Story
To keep their biannual collections of 22 to 24 watch releases fresh, Swatch began recruiting a number of collaborators to design extremely unique offerings. In , they enlisted artist Kiki Picasso to design a series. The following year, Keith Haring designed his own collection. In a kind of prelude to the sneaker design phenomenon of the s and beyond, these collaborators put their own distinctive stamps on the Swatches, which acted as a kind of canvas for their artistic expression. There was the Swatchetables line, which imagined the Swatches in a series of food-related motifs—a red-hot chili pepper Swatch, a cucumber Swatch, and a bacon-strap and egg-faced Swatch.
Like all aftermarket Swatches, they needed to be kept in their plastic retail case in order to realize their full value. Some resellers bought up stock in New York, then resold them for three times the price in Italy. Swatches came with cuffs to honor Mozart or adorned with synthetic fur.
Some of the straps were scented. The possibilities were endless, and so was the consumer appetite. Except for yellow straps, which traditionally sold poorly. Collectors camped out for Swatches at retailers or hundreds of Swatch-exclusive stores around the country. Affluent collectors dispatched employees to different retailers in the hopes of finding a limited-edition watch for retail price. If they failed, some had no problem paying thousands of dollars at auction. Though no one wears disguises to acquire Swatch watches anymore, the company is still issuing new releases.
And while the company has seen a decline in sales over the years—the rise of smartwatches like the Apple Watch and Fitbit continue to eat into their marketing share—affection for the brand is unlikely to disappear entirely anytime soon. Back in , Sports Illustrated ran an advertisement for a leather pouch that was touted as an ideal accessory for cross-country skiers who wanted to hold their lunch and ski wax. Hikers, equestrians, and bicyclists could also benefit from this waist-mounted sack, which was a bit like a backpack situated on the hips.
For the next several decades, it remained popular among recreational enthusiasts traveling by bike, on foot, or across trails where hands could be kept free and a large piece of travel luggage was unnecessary. From there, it morphed into a fashion statement, marketed by Gucci and Nike for decorative and utilitarian purposes in the s and '90s, before becoming an ironic hipster joke. Even the name— fanny pack —suggests mirth. But the concept of carrying goods on top of your buttocks was never meant to be a joking matter.

Mankind has looked to belt-mounted storage solutions for centuries. Subsequent civilizations adopted the premise, with Victorian and Edwardian women toting chatelaine purses made of silk or velvet. The 20th-century obsession with the fanny pack seemingly began on the ski slopes in Europe in the s and '70s. Known as bauchtasche , or stomach bags, in Switzerland, skiers traveling away from the base lodge who wanted to keep certain items—food, money, a map, flares, and occasionally alcohol—within arm's reach wore them proudly.
Photographers also found them useful when hiking or traveling outdoors and climbing through obstacles, as they reduced the risk of an expensive camera or lens being dropped or damaged. With them came the fanny pack, a useful depository for keys, wallets, drinks, and other items. They were especially popular among tourists, who could stash travel accessories like cameras and souvenirs without burdening themselves with luggage.
In the late s, fashion took notice. High-end labels like Chanel manufactured premium fanny packs, often with the more dignified name of belt bag. Sporting one was considered cool, as evidenced by their presence in popular culture. The Fresh Prince, Will Smith, wore one. Members of New Kids on the Block were seen with them. Nothing, it seemed, could dissuade people from feeling pragmatic and hip by sporting an oversized pocket on their waist, which they typically pulled to the front. Like most trends, overexposure proved fatal.
Fanny packs were everywhere, given out by marketing departments of major brands like Miller Beer and at sports arenas and stadiums. Plastered with corporate logos, they became too crassly commercial for style purposes and too pervasive. By the end of the s, wearing a fanny pack was no longer cool. It was an act that invited mockery and disdain.
The pack, of course, has retained its appeal among outdoor enthusiasts, and lately has been experiencing a resurgence in style circles, with designer labels like Louis Vuitton and Valentino offering high-end pouches. The abuse continued until the year after Betsy Bell's father, John, died in at about age The spirit took credit for his death, stating she poisoned him, Henson said of the legend.
But, Pugh says the spirit that tortured Betsy Bell and the rest of her family, even their slaves, on that pioneer farm nearly years ago wasn't responsible for John Bell's death. A slave killed John Bell, poisoning him because he could not protect Betsy, then 11, from another family member who was sexually abusing her, Pugh said. We couldn't keep sweeping it under the rug. At each site, Pugh would scribble in her notebook, and, at the end of the day, she had listed the names of everyone in the Bell family and came up with facts that both men later said she couldn't have known.
A lot of the family isn't going to like it because of the molestation part of it, but for me, the possession factor is central here.
