Thursday Thirteen #7

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Thirteen Things I have about my person…

  1. Keys: I used to have a huge bunch of keys and pocket tools when I worked as a projectionist/tech crew at University. Now I’ve got a few house keys and a lot fewer holes in my pockets.
  2. Wallet: Need somewhere to keep #3, #9. #10 and #12. Plus other assorted detritus.
  3. Cash and change: I’m no “Rusty” Regan I like to keep this to what I need to have on me and not too much more
  4. Watch: I need this so I can make sure I’m early. Even though #6 and #7 have clocks built in I still like having the convenience of a wrist watch.
  5. Maglite: I’ve carried this with me since I was a projectionist. Surprising how often having a torch is useful.
  6. Mobile Phone: I’m not a big mobile phone user. My first phone was a brick – when it suffered multiple systems failure last year I opted for a slinky modern slim line number in silver.
  7. Dell Axim X50: I spent a long time avoiding having a handheld but eventually I succumbed. It doesn’t run my life although it does remind me to do those jobs I’d rather forget to do.
  8. Think Outside Slimline Keyboard: This lets me write when I’m away from home without having the hassle of typing up notes afterwards.
  9. Stamps
  10. Cards: Membership cards, store loyalty scheme, library card and bank cards. #2 needs to have lots of space for these.
  11. Used Rail Ticket: No matter how hard I try I always seem to find one of these in my wallet. Usually from or to Liverpool. Still they make good emergency bookmarks.
  12. Pen and Organiser: Before I got # 7 I relied on my Muji aluminium organiser to keep track of phone numbers and other mundane stuff. Now it’s got a few essentials and lots of blank paper for those times I can’t set up #7 and #8 or when the battery goes flat.
  13. Comb: I’m no style guru (really I’m not) but I do have one grooming item with me pretty much all the time.

MissMeliss Friday, April 27th, 2007

What a great list - I love the use of a ticket as a bookmark (I often use a dollar bill)

Carol Friday, April 27th, 2007

Great list. I enjoyed reading it.

Ctina Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Do you really carry all these things with you?! Wow!

Titania Starlight Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I like to travel light myself. You sure had quite a list. :o)
Happy Thursday.

Christine Thursday, April 26th, 2007

My husband loves his Maglite.
If I counted I'd probably find more than #13 things in my purse.
Interesting list.
Happy thursday!

YellowRose Thursday, April 26th, 2007

You should be prepared for anything!!

Great list!

Sword Girl Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I love those maglites! They can really come in handy. Very nice technologies, esp. the fancy keyboard!

Kuanyin Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Thanks for the great idea about the slimline....and Happy TT!

Danielle Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I only have my watch and keys on me most of the time.

Happy TT.

Be well and enjoy the day

Dane Bramage Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Thank you thank you thank you. My friends think I'm the biggest geek because I have a few electronic Bluetooth gizmos but wit till they learn thay you have a keyboard! Ha! that is until I break down and get one.

My Thursday 13 is up. It's #39.

NAncy Thursday, April 26th, 2007

We all have so much stuff we have to carry with us. I have a cell phone and would rather not. The thing drives me nuts.

Tilly Greene Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I love the mini-keyboards - no more writing names/numbers on my hand [the shopping list is already there]! Hmmm, the cutie has receipts and ticket stubs in his wallet too, it must be a guy thing because I toss them unless I need to keep them, then their in the study.

Kim Knox Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Congrats on being the featured TT *grin*

she Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Watches in bags? Perhaps I misread.
Either way, you have far more goodies on your person than I do. I hate it when my pockets become over loaded ;)

Robin Thursday, April 26th, 2007

See now I always have a watch to make sure I'm not too too late. Early is generally not a problem.

Happy TT.

Qtpies7 Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Even when I clean out my purse, you are bound to find way too much junk in there. And with 7 kids, its pretty scarey to even reach down to the bottom most days. Yikes!

Nancy J. Bond Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Great idea for a TT! I'd be scared to list the things you might find in my purse. :) Happy TT!

Christine Thursday, April 26th, 2007

How cool is #8 - didn't know it existed.

Thanks for an interesting and educational list. I'm all about cows on parade over at

Janie Hickok Siess, Esq. Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I would need a list of more than 13 items to list everything I have with me at all times. Especially on a band rehearsal night! Then the list grows exponentially. Cool idea for a list.

Lori's Light Extemporanea Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Wow...I'm impressed! Happy TT!

Di Thursday, April 26th, 2007

I think I'm the last person on earth left using a Palm pilot...but I love it and depend on it...and I can sync it with my MacBook!

Janet Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Ahhhh Liverpool...always wanted to visit there, being a Beatles fan and all :-)

DK Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Interesting stuff you carry - kinda McGuyverish! That's a good thing. Have a great week and Happy TTing!

Susan Helene Gottfried Thursday, April 26th, 2007

LOVE the used transit card! And fewer holes in the pockets, too. Nice details.

Happy TT!

Rhian / Crowwoman Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

My pockets are usually empty unless i'm on a photoshoot - then i'm bulgy butt girl with batteries and lense caps and rags and keys and cellphone and all the other essentials while keeping my hands free for the camera. No wonder people laugh at me during a shoot.

This Eclectic Life Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

I don't carry all the fancy gadgetry. I'd be afraid to look at the other junk in the bottom of my purse. Wait until you get old, and you'll have six different pairs of glasses with you at all times, just in case you misplace another pair. Good list, makes me jealous of the stuff!

Thomma Lyn Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

Ha! Hubby and I have two Maglites -- a small one and a great big one. So handy -- they're some of the best flashlights around.

Thanks for a fun list, and happy TT!

Rashenbo Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

Hehe, I used to always wear my watch... now it sits at the bottom of my purse. I wish I had an alphasmart. I think I'd carry that thing around with me.... ok maybe not, it might just be that I want one :)

Kim Knox Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

I think I have keys... and that's about it. Mini filo-fax/purse the odd time LOL

Tink Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

Always interesting to see what someone carries with him or her. I did a handbag TT some weeks ago. We have quite some things in common. :-)
