Things you can learn from a grrl’s purse.

You can learn things about a grrl from what’s in her purse. Here’s some of what’s in mine:

  1. Two Epi-Pens.
  2. Two inhalers.
  3. Puppy linux CD
  4. Knoppix S-T-D CD
  5. Cellphone.
  6. PDA.
  7. Screwdriver.
  8. Thumb drive.
  9. Pens.
  10. Titanium spork from Think Geek.

What do you carry around with you?

  1. 1. Three Texas Instruments Calculators
    2. Two Thumb Drives
    3. Cellphone.
    4. iPod
    5. Pens, Pencils, Erasers, Highlighters and Markers
    6. Notebooks
    7. Pill case with allergy pills and vitamins
    8. A physics text book or two. Occasionally a Calculus one as well.
    9. A lab notebook.
    10. Several pads of post it page tabs.
    12. DV and SVGA adaptors for my laptop.
    13. A remote control for the laptop.
    14. A Stapler.

  2. A remote control for the laptop? 🙂
    Also, why three calculators?

  3. Yes, the remote is for the laptop 😉
    I have three calculators because I bought the TI-83 when I was a history major, and the 83 is recommended for Algebra and Statistics, but doesn’t do Calculus. I still have it because I took a class on how to use it and am really fast with it. I bought the TI-89 when I switched to physics because it has calculus functions built in. I carry it for obvious reasons. I have a TI-30XA because they don’t allow graphing calculators into the American Chemistry Society exams. I carry it with me in case the batteries in the other two die at the same time.

  4. I understood that the remote was for the laptop. 🙂 I just don’t understand why. Is it just for watching movies, or is there some other function it does?

  5. It does movies and stuff, and until I upgraded to 10.5 it was the only way to access one of the applications on my machine (Front Row). They’ve fixed that in the new version, but I like the remote.
    As for the calculators, is this where I mention I have deep and abiding calculator lust right now?

  6. Heh. 😀
    You have calculator lust; I have cellphone lust.

  7. Yes, well, I also have iPhone lust, but I don’t have $399.00 to spend.
    Not right now, anyway.

  8. Yes, well, I hear that.
    I want to combine my PDA and cellphone, so I have less to carry. So I was hoping for Palm OS, a nicer camera than my current cellphone, unlimited Internet, and, of course, an SSH client. I mean, what’s a cellphone without an SSH client?

  9. Worthless!
    Alas, I wouldn’t be able to get rid of my iPod, because I’ve got more stuff on my iPod that the iPhone has memory, but I would love to have a web enabled phone with a decent camera. And the iPhone browses over WiFi when it’s available!

  10. Yeah, the wifi thing is nice. I’d like that, too.
    I’m a total web-enabled phone junkie. *twitch* And the camera on my current phone sucks.

    The bulk of things I carry are:
    – Things to write with
    – Things to write on
    – Wallet with a variety of financial instruments so that I can buy more things to write with and write on
    I also carry other important things, like medicine and phone and tire gauge and a deck of playing cards.

  12. Tire gauge? You’re so organized, Julie! 🙂

    Organized, nothing. Someone gave me a tire gauge a year and a half ago, and I put it in my purse. Never got around to moving it. 🙂
