What has it got in its pocketses?
Posted by Sam at 2:59 PM
Clearly, I'm insane. This is nothing new to the people who know me well. The following inventory should be used as documentable proof of my dementia. Use it responsibly... I hear insanity is contagious.
List of things that I currently carry in my pockets at all times:
2. Mini Mag-Lite (attached to keys)
3. Leatherman SideClip
4. Pilot Precise V7 Rolling Ball Pen (red)
5. Burt's Bees, Beeswax Lip Balm (.30 oz.tin)
6. Sony Ericsson T-610 bluetooth camera fone
7. Wallet with all the appropriate accouterments (thanks Sarah)
8. Collapsable travel toothbrush
Total Current Weight = 1.24 lbs. (according to the FedEx scale at work)
In addition to the above, I often carry the following:
9. Palm Tungsten E with 64mb expansion card
10. 20gb Second generation iPod
11. Sharpie Fine Point Marker (black)
Total Additional Weight = 1.16 lbs.
Total Weight = 2.4 lbs.
Why do I carry so much crud around with me? I have no idea. How do my pants stay up? I have even less of an idea. What I do know however, is that I couldn't imagine facing the day without all of that stuff. What about you? How much gear do you carry around?

Why don't you use that little red man-purse you made? Maybe you could sew sub-sacs on the outside of it.
I have the same problem. I use my jacket as storage. Or my computer bag, which has never once held a computer. And sometimes I clip my pen at the collar of my tee-shirt. I really dislike my wallet too. It's huge, and as you've seen, holds more bank statements than money.
Good post though.
