Bag Voyeur

What’s in your bag?

I was reading through one of my favorite Hello Kitty authorities’ blogs, Hello Kitty Junkie,  when I came upon her March 2 entry entitled “My Favorite Purse… And My Hello Kitty Contents.” Her post inspired me to do this tag, which by itself, is neither new or innovative, just a tad annoying (sorry, folks!) and a whole lot curious.

In truth, I’ve always been a voyeur of sorts, peeking into people’s purses (with their express permission, of course), wondering how these reflect their image or identity. And if you think I’m weird, just think of the many women who’ve submitted photos of their bag (and contents) in In Your Bag- In Style, a site dedicated to showcasing trendy bags of celebrities and non-celebs alike.

And so, I’ll ask ever so politely the following people to do this one for me: Leirs, MegaMom, Teacher Julie, Cris, Mari, and Toni. And also new friend Miss Nomer, and KT Sanctuary and Angie (even if I know how much she hates hates hates tags!), my bestest Kitty mates in Sanriotown, just because I want to see what kind of Kitty bag they have. :-) You show me yours: I’ll show you mine.

~Whee!~

I live in my bag. I carry a rather large bag to accommodate many of the things I can’t leave home without, like my handheld gaming consoles (what if I get bored while waiting for a cab?), or pepper spray (what if I get held up while playing with my handheld gaming console while waiting for a cab?), or two phones (what if I need to call the police if I get held up while playing with my handheld gaming console while waiting for a cab?). Okay, okay, so you get the picture. This hardly sets me apart from others. I’m sure that there are many women out there who carry diaper-bag-sized bags, and they are not entirely fashion statements. Call it an instinctive girl scout mentality; when a need arises, one only needs to pull magic from a bag of tricks, like Mary Poppins and the way she conjured a standing lamp from her overnight bag.

While I could practically blend in a sea of brandless bags, I do have a particular something that sets me slightly apart from the normal midlifer. While women my age prefer to carry $1000-Guccis or Vuittons, I prefer Hello Kitty. And so, I parade my bag with the rest of them, head held high, a certified Kitty fanatic for life.

 My bag is my home.

This is my black leather HK bag. (Please click the thumbnails for a bigger view. Not in picture- the camera I always carry. Obviously, I was using it! And stashed somewhere behind the DS case are wet and dry tissues and a hankie, which I forgot to take a picture of. ) And these are the things I carry everyday, anywhere, everywhere, bad back and all.

1. my HK wallet (with Sanrio fan club cards, both old and new)

So now you’ve seen what’s in my bag. May I see what’s in yours?
