Just For Fun

Monday, January 09, 2006

  • Chloe decided it would be fun for all of us to share the contents of our bags, right now, this moment, without leaving anything out. I took her up on it because it sounded like exactly the kind of thing I would do anyway, so minus the crumpled kleenex, this is what I found...
  • one summer wallet (I am too lazy to change to a wintery coloured one; this one matches my watermelon summer bag)
  • one brush with hair band wrapped around the end just in case of bad hair day
  • one set of work keys (back into use tomorrow, I'm afraid)
  • two fancy pencils and one wooden pen (yes, you heard me right, I like interesting writing tools)
  • loose change (32 cents to be precise)
  • one CD (with the photos I had sent for the expensive processing)
  • three bandaids with cartoons on them (you never know when a child gets a scab or a mum gets a blister)
  • Canadian passport (I always leave it there so I know where it is the night before I am about to travel somewhere; I had a bad experience once, and learnt my lesson)
  • two small broken candy canes (not mine)
  • a photo of my children (what good mother wouldn't!; well, actually it's there for me to take tomorrow)
  • a lottery scratch ticket worth $2. (I always get some in my stocking; the only time I ever play the lottery)
  • my (very old, but still working) abused cell phone
  • coupons for diapers and loose receipts for god knows what
  • a pink notebook (in case I have a good though and need to pull over to the side of the road to write it down, or to keep addresses, or one of a thousand lists I make in a day
  • stamps (because I've recently mailed nice things to blog friends)

  • hand cream (because the Canadian winter is harsh on hands)
  • hand sanitizer (slather this on if we go our for dinner right after picking up my son from preschool...)
  • three types of lip gloss; Body Shop cranberry for fancier times, lobello for functionality, and Avon snowman for a nice smell.

Go ahead, call me a loser.

Pretty boring, I wish I had some great secret hidden in there. What's in your bag?

    Lisa;
    A winnie the pooh backback might be nice!

    Note to self;
    Maybe if I stay up all night and don't go to sleep, tomorrow will never come.

  1. Blogger Lisa said:

    LOL !!!

    Maybe I will try that too. I wrote my happy , sappy post ,then my day blew up in my face !!!

    Yes , I've had the pooh packs for a long time now .

  1. Blogger Anhoni Patel said:

    My wallet, my house key, my sunglasses and a tube of lip balm. that is it.

  1. Blogger Jase said:

    Hmmm... a girlies only challenge and so far no embarassing, worthy of snigger items, I wait with baited breath.

  1. Blogger angel, jr. said:

    Wow, that's a lot of stuff.

  1. Blogger momyblogR said:

    I carry a chocolate brown messanger bag that I LOVE. But I swear to goodness, I could live for a week out of what I have in that thing. On the up side....I usually have what either of the kids need. lol!

    Can't think of anything exciting in my purse. Personally I get very emotional every time I open my wallet and see the lack of money.

    I might give it a try.

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Wow Cathy, that's a heap of stuff. Still thinking about doing mine ... might be a bit embarassing, as I haven't dug around in the depths of it for ages. Who knows what I might find, or how long it's been there !!! Scary stuff !!!

  1. Blogger Berlinbound said:

    Did you stop by earlier? I messed with my settings and lost things ...

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Lisa;
    Sorry to hear it blew up in your face; maybe today will be better.

    Anhoni;
    Waiting for someone with something interesting! ;)

    Jase;
    Oh, not just for girlies; what's in your bag? ;)

    Angel;
    Actually, on many days I stuff even more in there...

    MomyBlogR;
    Take a photo!

    Connie;
    I'd love to see yours!

    Meow;
    I thought mine would be scarier that it was; but I didn't show all the kleenex tissue. I am awaiting yours! :)

    Richard;
    I had stopped by earlier and posted (three times I think;) but you had a thing on there theat meant you reviewed comments before they were posted. I just went over and posted now and it worked fine. It is an awful feeling when you've messed something up with your blog. I deleted my entire first one by accident; thus the title of my current blog.

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    note to self: my cell phone is also missing.
    I quite like the fact that i am not the only person who has 2-3 different kinds of lip gloss in her bag.
    Your bag is very interesting. Especially the wooden pen. An environmentalist through and through!

  1. Blogger missbhavens said:

    Oh, the insides of my bag are pretty boring...BUT there's so much stuff in there it could be a blog unto itself!

  1. Blogger Jase said:

    My Case Logic, doesn't look like but is a laptop case, which I carry to and from work regardless of whether I bring my laptop home currently contains: Software discs, receipts for expenses, a book, sunglasses, my small digital camera, associated cables & spare card, passport, rental contract for my apartment in Costa Rica, paid electricity bill for same, my Spanish mobile phone, a chapstick, Costa Rican spare change, noise cancelling headphones, headset with microphone for Skype, webcam, a letter from a bank in Gibraltar, a Future Shop gift card, an empty CD case, a ticket stub for seat 21C on a San Jose - Toronto flight, two attached square violet post-it notes with the letter F in blue ballpoint on the first, no laptop as I left the work one at work and the home one is here with me in the apartment. About my person I'm carrying my wallet, my Canadian mobile phone, keys to the apartment here, rental car keys, Canadian loose change. And that's it!
