what’s in my bag?

my bag

If I’m not taking pictures, I’m either reading, writing, or pondering why chocolate coconut water & sour peach rings taste so delicious together.   The only drawback to this behavior is that I need a giant-sized bag for the camera, the lenses, the books, the journals, and, of course, the dog necessities (I take Kinzie just about anywhere I can).

Okay okay, so I’m pretty sure you don’t care what’s in my bag or what I’m doing on the day-to-day.  That whole diddy about what I carry around was really just to show you that I’m currently reading (&loving) Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

I’m liking it so much that I ordered Tina Fey’s Bossypants to minimize the withdrawals that will inevitably occur when I finish the novel.  I’ve also been a fan of Chelsea Handler’s books for a while, and Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me is patiently waiting on my nightstand.

So, here is a little photo collage paying homage to the girls that are making me smile:

  1. I nearly skipped this because I saw the date was Sept6 and thought “why is there a post from last year showing up in my feed?” and then I realised that it’s today! How has it just struck me NOW that it’s September?! Ha! Looks like you have some good books there 🙂 (and a very full handbag)

  2. I like those tiny photographs. They are cute together. I have the same love of coconut water and sour peach rings although I try to stay away from the peach rings. I am eating fruit leather as I write this, before that smoked baby clams in a can with Louisiana hot sauce, and before that, frozen grapes, and before that, lucky you, I can’t remember. But, now I am eyeing the Heath Eskimo bar. When I get nervous, I eat. OK, I eat all the time.

    I used to carry a camera everywhere I went. I am now getting rid of my backdrops and light kit. I already got rid of a Spiderlight, which was really expensive at the time, but I never used it. I think I am giving up photography, where I can do pretty well with the phone camera and Photoshop. I do want to print big, so, that’s a problem.

    I have a very heavy backpack too. Today, had pens, batteries, keyboard, various old articles and pieces I had written, an envelope with a letter about wanting to play music and read poetry for the residents of the nursing home my mother is in, a portfolio, History of Madness by Michel Foucault, which I am reviewing and will be turning into an epic poem, work-related matter, old copy of new book, a “Five-Minute Resume” I wrote in ’93 or something, beginning of letter to my mother’s ex boy-friend of say ’78, an outline of a talk I gave to a high school english lit class about art, Poets & Writers magazine, May/June, ’13 that I never read, subtitled: “Get the Ball Rolling…,” copy of my book After, the book The Tarot Letter by my friend Carol (C. S. Thompson), a poem I wrote and copied on paper with an image I took of a friend as a response to a cafe clerk at Guerilla Cafe who was wearing a scarf over her head but I never gave it to her (See; http://savioni.wordpress.com/2013/09/06/the-loser/ as I just posted it). I kept going back but she was never there and I felt embarrassed. She was too young for me and I am obviously attracted to her. There’s the book How to Find Fulfilling Work by Roman Krznaric, which I had forgotten about. Mints, copies of my book Blue Emptiness, gum, and more mints.

    I wish I had a dog but I feel I would neglect it and it would become depressed living here.

    I do feel that everyone is hanging without me. I don’t think I could get through Bossypants nor CH Told Me.

    Anyway, it is nice to see what you are doing.

  3. AHHHH! I love both Mindy Kaling’s and Tina Fey’s books! 🙂 I haven’t checked out any Chelsea Handler books yet, but I will have to. Recommendation for you: “Seriously…I’m Kidding” by Ellen DeGeneres. So wonderful.


  4. I got half way through Mindy’s book and set it down. I LOVED all of Chelsea Handler’s books. I started with Are you there vodka, It’s me Chelsea and last read My Horizontal Life.

    A book I don’t think has been mentioned yet is White Girl Problems. I urge you to go to target and BUY. IT. NOW. Seriously, the funniest book I have ever read.
