Voyeurism - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal
What's in my bag - 5/5/09
What's in my bag? - 5/5/09

Photo: I love this community on Flickr - What's in your bag?.
    First, I'm a terrible bag slut. I own the following bags:
  1. Medium Timbuk2 messenger I use for the gym.
  2. Small Timbuk2 messenger (above) for everyday use.
  3. Custom Mirror's Edge Timbuk2 messenger (Yeah, I was that excited for the game).
  4. Saddleback Leather medium briefcase I use for travel and days when I want laptop and camera.
  5. Chrome Bag citizen messenger I use(d) when riding.
  6. Tamrac 5608 Pro 8 camera bag which is for weddings. It carries two cameras, flash, gorilla pod and various lenses, batteries and memory.
  7. Finally a Lowepro Nova 180 that I very quickly out-grew and never use anymore
    (See? Bag slut)

Secondly, voyeurism is FUN. People carry weird shit with them. I especially like to find people more gadget geeky than I, like the guy who carries four PDAs and two iPods. And the San Fransisco messengers who carry 20 protein bar and three changes of underwear. Are the super designer girls who match every friggin' Dolce and Gabbana accessory. I can gawk at them. Look! They're crazy!

As for me? Well, I seem to manifest bottle caps in all my bags. I had a Blue Moon bottle cap in my bag yesterday. Last time I had one of those was over two years ago at Blue Moon Bar and Grill on University Ave. Crazy. But good practice for the apocalypse.

In other news, I'm soaking chicken in the garlic buttermilk RIGHT NOW for fried chicken tonight. Nom nom nom nom.

I'm also trying to switch to green tea at work rather than coffee. I washed my teapot, Funny how a clean tea pot is so much more appealing than a dirty one when you're making such a transition (again). I still had tea left over from jackshoegazer's and antarcticlust's gift last year. Perhaps a smidgen past prime but hey, I'll drink it. :) mm.. green tea.

And I'm taking Friday off. Not sure why but I want to. Probably going to go phlogging all day. Or ruin my newly exchanged tea addiction back for coffee on State street.

OH! An industrious individual has prodded photog_xp back to life. We'll start up again next week. You should all join, especially you, hellocthulhu. I've added some more moderators so we can pass around the organization responsibility as I failed to keep it up on my own last time through. Yay shared responsibility!

This past weekend? Awesome.
YOU: You should all do a What's In Your Bag! post.

Current Mood: groggy groggy

And "what's in your bag?" would be a good first theme for photo_xp! :D

Indeed. Though my bag doesn't change that much day to day. :) 7 days of the same junk? I dunno! But! I will suggest it.

mmmmm Green Tea. mmmmmm Black Tea.

i don't like the taste of fruity teas. it tends to taste like hot Kool-Aid to me. >.

Ditto. But I've only ever really liked the green tea I get from Barriques.

Jasmine Pearl...nom nom nom.

Also do you have essential oils in your bag? Or are those vials of blood of your enemies?
abmann From: abmann Date: April 6th, 2009 04:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Essential oils. I keep the blood of my enemies in my leather bag. Spilled blood is great for leather.

i was distracted by the contents by your BAG: omg i love it!!

your chicken sounds goooood. i don't like green tea, although i keep trying to.

My bag is awesome and full of goodies!

Soaking the chicken in buttermilk overnight makes it tangy and awesome. I'm sort of concerned that using the butter milk from the garlic butter Fox made will make it way to garlicy.... if that's possible.

Green tea is ok. It's not coffee but I want to feel less groggy in the morning now that there's more light in the morning. Of course, come next winter I'll be right back on the black gold train.

You should do a What's In Your bag! post!

it's funny you posted this today, because i've been bemoaning that i need a new bag. i grudgingly switched from my Mary Poppins bag (it was getting holey) to a purse and i'm not crazy about it.

garlic butter sounds awesome, too. yummm. garlic cream cheese sounds even better. can you tell i haven't eaten in a day or two? haha. i'll post a picture later. JUST FOR YOU, MISTER.

Need bag recommendations? I've been around the block. ;)

Yeah you have!
abmann From: abmann Date: April 6th, 2009 03:09 pm (UTC) (Link)


I was honest, see. :) Still want to date someone as worn in as me? You can rub me down with oils every six months to extend my lifespan and prevent cracking.

Does it have to be patchouli and ylang ylang root?

I'm flexible!

I'm going to use corn starch and rice flour for the coating tonight to see what it is like. I've made tempura batter with corn starch and it was impressively crispy. I want to see how well it translates to chicken.

I don't have a bag and NO ONE wants to know what's in my sack.
abmann From: abmann Date: April 6th, 2009 08:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think you told everyone anyway.

I, too, lack a bag. Unless you want to see the grocery bag I carry gaming gear around in when I have a session.

I joined the group though, and will try to keep up!
