Hi everyone,
For the longest time I''ve been searching for a bag I can use that transitions well from grad school life to professional conferences and interviews in the next couple of years. I didn''t want something super formal like a briefcase, but I wanted something that looks professional. It was time for me to ditch the backpack LOL! My personal style is fairly classic and casual, jeans and button downs shirts, tees, leather boots, etc. and this bag fits right in and goes with everything.

This bag is *it* and I love it!

I found the seller on etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5045078&ga_search_query=neiko&ga_search_type=seller_usernames). I loved the fumi bag, but the wooden handles just weren''t practical for my type of use. They were awesome and worked with me to custom make the ideal bag for me. Basically it is the fumi style scaled down a couple of inches with the amelia handles.

I LOVE this bag!!! I just wanted to show it off and suggest this designer in case you are looking for a new bag.

kcoursolle - you have me completely obsessed with these cats now. DH is allergic to some (not all) cats. He generally just doesn't like them. But... he likes odd and unique. I sent him the link to your thread on Blueberry.

I quote, "THAT is AWESOME! You can have a cat if we can get the cool martian cat." Followed by lots of inappropriate jokes about hairless pussy-cats....

And then I found out how much they cost. Gah. LOL. Still looking though...

This is cracking me up!! My DH felt the same way and our little one frequently gets alien comments and DH also brings out the hairless pussy jokes pretty frequently LOL.

We were able to get her for a fairly affordable cost because she was a retired breeder. She was an adult when we got her, but I was fine with that. Kittens are indeed very expensive, but if you don''t mind waiting months or a year or so a retired breeder might become available. Put yourself in touch with some breeders in your area to let them know you are interested.

I actually found a breeder in MI that has a retired breeder! I don't mind an adult cat either. But.... I don't want to jump into it without making really sure we're ready for a pet! She'd be alone a LOT, as we're gone for at least 8.5 hours a day.
She would also cost about as much as the diamond earrings I've been saving up for.... so it's diamonds or martian cat. LOL.

ETA: Sorry to hijack your thread!
