Hmm.. My wallet has about six bucks in single dollar bills, and about two dollars in change. Absolutly nothing else. However I do keep a Nintendo DS with me at nearly all times so I'm basically a walking one-hundred and eighty eight dollar theft target (including DS game thats in the DS at all times). A target that has no cellphone either. Well at least I'll be getting a pocket knife soon.

But as you can see my wallet is pretty empty, I don't even carry ID of any kind.

Let's see.... my gig bag (the stagehand equivalent of a briefcase):

- two rolls of gaffer's tape (one white, one black)
- crescent wrench
- DeWalt 18v battery charger
- two folding knives (in the offhand chance that my leatherman is actually allowed to go dull)
- a pair of dikes (cutting tools, you dolts!)
- wire strippers
- a computer repair kit
- two knee braces
- a lower back support
- a quantum theory book
- plans for a Tesla coil
- coil of trick line (black braided 1/4" theatrical cable)
- about 400 packets of mints from a pesticide company that I ganked at a trade show and never took out - the mints taste like #.
- razor blade for cutting gels
- pocket-sized knife sharpener
- 3 spare lighters
- organizer with pens (hasn't been updated since March of 2005)
- cordless screwdriver with charger
- black paint marker
- black sharpie

Can anyone guess what I do for a living? *grin*
