Not an April Fool’s joke, just a meme, borrowed from jjhunter.

Things I almost always take along when I go out:

  • Glasses
  • Smartphone
  • mp3 player + headphones
  • Keyring (with loyalty cards for Stop’n’Shop, CVS)
  • MBTA pass
  • Chapstick
  • Wallet (with photo ID, credit card, library card, laundry card, debit card, and some cash)
  • Mini health kit (pads, painkillers, bandaids, alcohol wipes, cough drops, in a little Red Cross pouch)

(The last 4 are stashed permanently in my bag, only pulled out for special occasions.)

Things I won’t pack if I’m just running to the store, but will make a point of taking to work, or on a more extended trip:

  • Phone charger (USB, with outlet adapter)
  • Sketchbook
  • Clipboard (for sketchbook sturdiness reinforcement)
  • Assembly of pens, pencils, eraser

And here’s September 2009, my previous computer, running the just-released Windows 7:

Picking up the theme, the computer I got during grad school and still have, in July 2017:

That’s the wonderful Desktop Calendar app running in the lower right. And in the second column of icons, you can see the folder with miscellaneous Photobucket rescues.
