New bag for me!

I finally had to retire my old canvas bag which I picked up back in 2004. After a bunch of looking around, Ask Metafilter suggested a Tom Bihn cafe bag, which turned out to be about perfect. I got the medium, linked back there, but you can really see the details (and the color I got) in these pictures of the small size.

I figured that was as good an excuse as any to do a "What's In Your Bag" post. You can click the photo to see the annotations on Flickr, or see the list below the cut to see what's in there:

What's In My (new Tom Bihn) Bag


  • Magazine and/or book: Right now, this month's Good and Jane Jacobs' The Death and Life of Great American Cities, which is systematically describing to me everything I'm finding in Toronto which I wasn't finding in Ottawa
  • My stainless-steel Onebottle from Grassroots
  • My big plasticy orange Fossil sunglasses
  • A couple moleskines (one of which is full of letters from coffeechica, hee <3)
  • House keys with turtle light, and caar keys
  • iPod nano and Sennheiser PX100 headphones
  • Orange nylon folding grocery bag
  • Business card holder with mine and nyxie's cards in it
  • Orange Jimi wallet (I like orange)
  • Binder clip full of the cards that don't fit in the Jimi
  • Rollerball pen
  • Camera, or there would be if I didn't have it in my hand
  • My phone, a boring old prepaid Razr
  • Gum for emergencies
  • Umbrella

Alright, meme time, what's in your bag?


  • 1
outer pouch: lighter, house keys + secureid fob, car keys.
side pouch: sigg bottle.
other side pouch: samsung blackjack.
underflap outside pouch: gum, little lint roller, fountain pen, sharpie, gel pen, moleskine, passport, travel tissue packet, little box of tiny origami papers, hearing aid storage pouch.
main pouch: wallet, bottle of ranitidine, bottle of , tylenol, bottle of darvocet (tylenol for daily use, darvocet for real pain), makeup bag (makeup, safety pins, nail nippers, breath strips), nintendo dslite (in case with accessories), creative:zen m 80g, frizz-ease hair creme, tissue, driving glasses.

my current bag is too big and encourages carrying too much stuff. it's cute and i like it but it's a bit unwieldy. plus i'm a sucker for cute messenger bags!

I know what you mean! I carried my Timbuk2 bag every day I'd need a chiropractor on call.

That reminds me: Under the washing directions on my new bag, it reads "Siquid mantica non capit, domi relinquendum est" -- if it doesn't fit in your bag, leave it behind!
