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?

I want to do a cool photo post like this but it'll never happen, so:

work laptop (thinkpad T43p, soon to be replaced by a T61)
work portable harddrive (which apparently is a Huge Security Risk)
reading/computer glasses (purple, slightly sparkly)
black wallet that is pink inside, probably my favourite material possession (this one)
two bic pens
pink lip gloss
red lip gloss
portable pack of kleenex
house keys
pair of black dangly earrings I wore to work yesterday and then removed because they were hurting my ears
red ipod nano engraved with "4A696D6D79206C6F7665732050616D6D79"
Nike+ connector doohickey for above ipod
armband for above ipod
dust, dirt, etc

the reading/computer glasses are in their black imitation alligator case

That's almost as long as your comment on nyxie's shoe post. And believe me, I've heard about the wallet :-)

who told you - they will be shot. unless it was me =/

nyxie of course! While pointing out the Coach wallet she wants. :-)

Okay, I can't shoot nyxie. She's too cute!

If I may extol the virtues of a Coach wallet - it holds up like no other wallet I've ever had. A year later and it still looks brand new. And I just love the details on it, like the plaid change pouch :)

Yeah, I go past the Coach store and go... 'I want that one, or maybe that one! Oooh pretty' like a dork. :p
