Swag

Posted: November 9, 2011 in Ramblings

Chris picked up three laptop bags at work yesterday as the result of a “sell off for cheap all this old swag with logos we don’t use anymore” project.  Anybody need one?  I’m happy to send them to you.  We don’t need them.  I don’t know why he bought them.  Clearly, he’s been hanging around with Dad too much.

    Each of you should have a Grab N Go bag, also called a Get Out of Dodge bag (GOOD). This is a bag with all the stuff you would need if yoiu had to evacuate for a few days, due to natural or man made disaster. Since you arfe not using your NOOK anymore, you could stick it in there and also a charger (both wall and car and possibly a pocket solar, llike a Juice Bar. Add some fruit leather or other snack, a change of underweart and socks and whatever else you hold dear (and is small enouth to fit.

    You could also use it to make a car emergency bag for each car,with heat sheets in case you’re trapped in your car in the winter, first aid supplies, a flashlight, a Leatherman utility tool and other stuff that you think you might need.

    Finally, you could use it as a genreric messenger bag when you have small stuff to carry around and have no room in your purse.

    Dad isn’t such a bad model. 🙂

  2. What I meant about that is that Chris collects bags like Dad collects TV sets!

    These are good ideas. But I don’t like that “expecting the worst” mentality! You should know that by now.

    Shouldn’t it be a GODB? Good thing neither of us drives a Dodge. 🙂

    Can you post a picture of the bags? Would love to see one.

    never got the idea reading your blog, now I do.

    Do you still have the bags and want to get rid of?
    Would be interested in one for my one bagless laptop. I dont mind outdated logos. At the moment it resides in an “internationale school” logoed bag. Only that I would never send kids to that school, since their logo contains a badde mistake and their flyer was not any better (the curriculum descriptions were teeming with grammar mistakes and typoes galore).
    I am not good at it, but think, I would be one of their better teachers.

    • Nice to see you here! Unfortunately we did get rid of all the bags, but Microsoft is notorious for giving out logo-ed bags, so I will keep you in mind should Chris come home with any more. Thanks for posting.

      I agree that it is infuriating to see so-called “professional” businesses with bad grammar and so on.
