Thursday Thoughts

This Thursday Thoughts is way out of the norm.

I'm not what you might call a "girly girl". I don't dress up, I dig the sports, and I really hate to carry a purse. Why can't chicks carry a wallet in their back pocket like dudes? I've compromised and got a sling back which is totally unisex. Although, Dave said he would never carry one. I think he's just a Midwesterner and dudes carrying a bag in the Midwest is, well, you know.

So, here is what I carry in my bag:

  1. Overland Sling Bag--Like I said, totally unisex and great to wear.
  2. iPhone--Totally awesome and revolutionizing my life and business.
  3. Brio gift card--I've had it since September 2008.
  4. Notepad--I use this to write down messages or important things I need to remember.
  5. Wallet--There's like a zillion credit cards in there because I have one for my photography business, my photo booth business, and my personal one.
  6. Pen--Comes in really handy.
  7. Business card case--I've been trying to hand out more business cards and network, network, network.
  8. Jack's Aquarium Fish Of The Month Club Card--I've already told you about my fish.
  9. What do you call these? I got this with my hot chocolate on inauguration day and decided to keep it because (a) it's cool and (b) instead of getting a new one each time and creating more waste, I'll just reuse the one I have.
I want to know, what's in your bag? It could be in your purse or your gym bag, but here's what I want you to do. Empty your bag. Take a picture of it. Put that picture on your blog and label what the things are. Make sure to leave a comment letting me know if you posted it on your blog. If you don't have a blog, send me an e-mail with the picture and the list so I can post it on Thursday Thoughts next week. My e-mail can be found on my profile page.

i love the idea. i'll dump my bag from this morning's run and take a photo.

and, yes. the iphone is an amazing piece of technology. it's better than i ever thought it would be.

i know the feeling - i just don't carry a bag! well, sometimes i do, and then i end up ditching it and just carry around my wallet, and shove everything else in my pockets. ("everything else" = chapstick & phone)

I carry my chapstick so much that I have a pair of jeans that have chapstick tube stretch marks in the pocket. You know, like dudes who carry chewing tobacco in their back pocket.

I hate a purse too...and the only thing that fits into my "purse/bag" is money, credit cards and there is a small outer sleeve that holds my cell phone :=)) I will see if I can get a good picture of it-

As for my running bad OMG....Im ready for anything with that sucker.....I got extra of everything in there!
