I hate to have stuff in my pockets. If it's just that it would be my small billfold with my driver's license, health card, credit card, ATM card, Hard Rock All Access card and a few dollars in it along with my car keys.

If I'm traveling out of state (which in RI is easy to do) I always bring my backpack. It always has this other stuff in it:

G5 iBook with necessary cords and stuff, Generation 3 iPod with necessary cords and stuff, wallet with lots of other cards, Speed Stick, cell phone (never on) with recharger and manual, Canon Rebel XT (not shown 'cuz it's takin' the picture) with manual and necessary stuff (Midstate Camera Repair card, extra battery, recharger, extra compact flash), LL Bean windbreaker, loose change (I never carry it on me), Tums, Life Savers, tissues, and Chap Stick. Oh yeah, I never go anywhere without my cheap, polarized sunglasses (my eyes are very light sensitive).

    Holy crap! You have just as much stuff as I do on a daily basis! My photo just shows some of the stuff I carry. If I took a photo of ALL the stuff I carry on a daily basis, my camera would break...and, no, I definitely don't need 90% of it! Ha ha!

    If your cell phone's never on, why do you need the manual?? Were you a woman in your past life?

  • John Linton

    John Linton said (27 Jul 2008):

    Perhaps I was, Leanna...I don't remember. I'm not much for talkin' on the phone, but if I ever need to make a call I'd have no clue without it. It's for the car.
