Crumpled

I was just perusing old entries and adding tags (new feature on macbebekin — thanks MT!) when I stumbled upon this one about denying JM a new Crumpler bag. Ah, the foolish days of non-velcro totes and messenger bags. So happy we gave in.

I bought this one in Melbourne on our last trip down south. It replaced an old worn out Levi’s zipperless tote that had been my book bag for German class. I do miss the soft suede interior of that bag, but this one has ample room at the bottom for lost keys, a long pouch on one side and two on the other, all with velcro tabs to keep the contents from rattling about. I love it and the color, a dark brownish black. “Gunmetal” the salesperson insisted. Whatever, is nice, I like. I hesitated because of the large stitched logo on the front, but turn it around and it’s no longer a walking billboard.

It carries:
2 Moleskines (Reporter and Calendar)
Pencil bag
Hat (folding bucket kind)
Wallet
Business cards
Receipts (in the long pouch)
Mobile phone
Extra pens not in pencil bag
Lipstick and lip gloss
Hand wipes
Face shield (in case I need to resuscitate you)
Keys
Mints
Bandana
Mosquito bite clicker thing
Shopping tote (thanks Elsa)
