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:
1. Keys
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.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
