Someone on ATS was doubting that authorities would find a brochure from a rafting resort in the bombers' backpacks. I was just saying on that site, how much you can learn about people by looking through their bags.

So, people. What's in your wallet? Or purse/briefcase, etc. right now?

*turns around in tiny cubicle and pops open briefcase*

*snap*

Here we have:

a phone directory of everyone at my organization

a copy of my taxes for 2004 ( I've filed an extension on my extension, and now they're due aug 15! And I STILL haven't done them)

A map of California (from my business trip last month)

A city map for my business contacts in California

Hand sanitizer (for use after shaking hands w/ sleazy sales reps)

Business cards

Receipt for a medical procedure (hernia) in March, plus my paper war with my insurance company, concerning what they consider "outside-network provider" on equipment they had previously declared to be "in-network . . ."

OOPS! documents I was supposed to run through the office shredder wound up in my briefcase!!! just a minute . . .

A photocopy of a coworker's driver's license, for the rental van in VA; that should have been turned in with my reciepts.

some pens

technical manual for software that is proprietary . . .

cellphone (with call notes!)

OOPS! Here's my resume and an interview appointment with another firm I did before the july 4 holiday *jumps up and heads for shredder*

correspondence with local college about the possibility of me serving as an adjunct professor in the fall.

bank receipts for my most recent paycheck

a floppy disk with . . . a "to do" list on it from just before last Christmas (jeez, what am I walking around with that for?)

Haw! a birthday card for my wife. . . I lost it and had to go buy another one instead. I wonder if I can save this one 'till next year. Hmmm. Guess it's safe in my briefcase . . .

A copy of Robert's rules of order

A blank book I keep as a journal. (it's in my own constructed language, and not english)

See, my point is, I am a disorganized personality type. And just from rummaging through my briefcase, you've got a HEAP of information about where I've been on various dates, and even with whom. So I don't think the brochure is that unlikely.

On my desk here at the office I have a brochure from an historic california landmark, from my recent trip . . .

Holy cow!!!! I had no idea I was so organized. But anyone that went through my purse would think, My God, how vain is this girl.... Actually I'm just not a morning person, so I put my make-up on during the train ride to work.

I hide the good stuff at home.

As far me, I'm sure I've got pamphlets and matchbooks from Vegas casinos and European hotels left in my baggage from trips I've taken years ago.

I suppose you really can tell A LOT about a person by their purse/bag/etc... I didn't realize that everything I've done for the past couple of nights and everything I'm supposed to do for the next four are fully spelled out in my purse... Not to mention the name and address of where my friend is staying in NC... That's too much power for one man to have over me... I'm semi-creeped out...

Alrighty.

Contents of ancient denim-and-leather purse that I bought for $3 at a flea market in Seattle:

NORML card (it's old. Very old)

Old concert tickets: Nick Cave, David Bowie, Tibet House, Blondie.

Movie tickets: Armageddon (!), Eyes Wide Shut

Burt's Bees lip balm

Body Shop eyeliner and powered tissue paper doodah thingies

Three hair clips

Four rubber bands and a GlueStik

Copy of immigration papers

Copy of Goljan's "Most Commons In Medicine"

Copy of Goljan's "Most Commons In Path and Lab Medicine"

Dalai Lama biography

Leonard Cohen cassette (yes, cassettes still exist)

Amnesty International, Int. Campaign For Tibet and Childreach membership thingies.

Small bottle of patchouli oil.

Friendship bracelet made out of human hair belonging to me and my best highschool friend.

Two fortune cookies (unopened, still in wrappers - I'm figuring I might need them in an emergency)

Unopened condom (ditto)

Water purification tablets. (don't ask)

Benadryl

Packet of Gummi Bears (for those times I want to bite someone's head off)

Very, very old packet of gum.

Four odd white pills - I have utterly no idea what they are.

Two (unused!) tampons, painted with silver and purple glitter nail polish.

Notebook and pencil.

An Epipen (which I think is outdated)

Packet of airplane peanuts

Two chocolates, unwrapped, of dubious origin. They're probably older than Noah.

A fossilised bird's egg. I don't know where it came from, either.

(Freud would probably have a field day with this list)


Edit: These are my contents, I hasten to add...they didn't come with the bag when I bought it
