Saturday, May 17, 2003I am a bag fiend
I have sooooo many bags...Computer bags, courier bags, backpacks, wheely bags, suit bags....I can't get enuf.
I say I'm on the journey to finding the perfect laptop/work/travel bag that fits my needs.
Last year I bought a lovely High Sierra laptop bag which is just perfect for traveling overseas or interstate with when I need to take my laptop, papers, a couple of books; basically when I need to have my work stuff with me away from home.
This week I was traveling to Sydney for a day (not overnight) and decided that I needed a new bag. I could have taken my Crumpler courier bag (as Suzette quite rightly pointed out....several times) but on top of my shirt and pants business look it wouldn't have quite worked out.
I "needed" a bag that would hold the minimum stuff for a day trip and would keep with my image as a not conservative techie without looking like a skater.
So I schemed to get a new crumpler laptop bag. It was purchased on a run this week much to Suzette's disbelief!!
So now I have yet another crumpler bag (we have 5 crumpler bags between 2 people).
The result....well I ended up going to Sydney without the laptop but the bag did take all the things I needed (except a drink bottle). And to finish the day the staff on the Virgin flight complimented me on the bag...thanks ladies!!!!
So bleh to you Suzette ;-)
