Every once in a while, that post-everything-in-your-purse-and-tag-[X]-people meme makes the rounds. I saw it again just a few weeks ago.
I may or may not have been tagged; I don’t remember.
But in any case, as long as I was messing around with “purse stuff” (as a direct result of this goodness from Friday!), I thought I’d go the whole nine yards and show y’all what I haul around with me every day.
Are ya on the edge of your seat, yet? Good.
One (1) innocuous-looking (though altogether lovely!) purse:
It hides a surprising quantity of stuff, actually:
Inventory is as follows…
1 half-cake of sock yarn
1 sock in progress
1 completed sock (for reference. Who needs a pattern?)
1 pack of Trident gum.
1 Levenger True Writer pen, which I’ve had since high school and absolutely adore. Best pen ever.
1 small tape measure, for measuring stuff. Comes in handy.
1 blueberry candy container, which is my on-the-go knit stuff. I’ve got teensy scissors in there, as well as a couple darning needles, stitch markers, and a few lengths of scrap yarn. Everything else can be improvised as needed 😀
1 ruler, for measuring stuff. When I don’t want to use the tape measure. Redundancy much?
1 crappy-ass Phone From Hell, to be chucked from the Eads Bridge at my earliest opportunity.
1 pink iPod Nano in its handknitted cozy.
2 reusable grocery bags, self-contained.
1 sunglasses case containing (surprise!) sunglasses.
1 set of keys, with assorted frequent buyer cards and just-in-case pepper spray*
1 flash drive; free giveaway from local law firm recruiting my dear smart beloved husbandmanperson.
1 stack of business cards for my awesome hair stylist and my awesome jewelry stylist, to be handed out on an as-requested basis.
1 crappy little point-and-shoot
1 tub Rosebud lip balm, in “Brambleberry Rose.” YUM. (And also? I’ve been using this stuff several times a day for over 6 months, and it’s not even halfway gone. Best. Investment. Ever.)
2 coffee sleeves. For sleeve-ing coffee.
3 assorted tea bags, for tea emergencies.
1 Cover Girl pressed powder.
1 almost empty tube of Bath and Body Works Jasmine Vanilla hand creme. My favorite.
So…did that fulfill your voyeuristic tendencies for the day?
