What's in My Bag?

1. Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying today - not last weekend when you and your hubby or wife or just your own kick-ass single self went out to that fabulous restaurant. No cheating!!!

2. Tell us how much it cost. This is a no-judgment zone -- there will be no ridiculing or eye rolling here. And, if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I'd love to hear it.

I'm going to guess that it was between 3~5 dollars and I bought it in Thailand or Cambodia.

3. Tell us what is in the bag! We want to see everything...

So, what we have here: first off, we have the dishes created by the fact that I regularly don't eat before I head to work (yes, yes, at 2:30 PM): a bowl and spoon for my oatmeal (and man, do my students all think that oatmeal is the nastiest thing they've ever seen) and my Starbucks travel mug, which has been kind of leaky lately. Since it's an old bag, there's some spare change that I dug out of the hole in the lining and a chunner (my friends and I made that word up. Technically that is a chun-won.) My book - I'm never without one - presently Suite Francaise. I take a book to work every day in spite of the fact that I seldom have any breaks between teaching to do any reading and the small breaks I do have are generally spent reading books that I teach to my fourth and fifth graders. Though I sometimes read in the cab, especially if my pretty purple iPod conks out because I seldom remember to charge my battery. Then there's a Valentine's Day card I got from my parents today, a gas bill, and a business card from a friend who writes for the Seoul Times and makes me minusculey famous sometimes. My chapstick - that one is Green Apple flavoured and horrible. Some stale Trident gum that I paid through the nose for at the Foreign Food Mart the other day. My shitty ass phone, which has a battery that dies in about five seconds of being disconnected from the charger. And finally, my wallet/change purse - in there I keep my subway card (which I almost never use because I'm lazy and I keep taking taxis to work), my alien registration card, a bank card, perhaps my Canadian VISA card, and about $200. Korea is the kind of place where life flows so much more smoothly if you use cash.

4. Now tag some fellow bloggers and link back to this post so people know why you are posting pictures of your bag.

Really I'm doing it because Simplicity asked me to! If you also wanna do it, shoot away.
