I need my things.

I have a messenger bag - I carry it everywhere.

Why is it only girls can take things whenever, wherever they want?

Now mine isn't as spiffy as a Diesel one and I don't even think I paid 5 dollars for it. It's just a cheap black bag with a backpack strap- but darn it, I love it.

So if you want to carry a bag, I say go for it.

I carry a bag, but still have my keys, wallet, phone in my pockets, I learned a long time ago about losing my stuff, and my pockets seem the safest place to me. God forbid, I leave my bag somewhere, at least I still have my important things on me.

Aside: Put some heavy make-up and wig on William Stedd, and he'd be a dead ringer for porn director ChiChi LaRue.
I killed the boss, you don't think they're gonna fire me over a thing like that!!!!

I thought this thread was going to be about male nurses.

Jerby. I think I loved your video more than the original. Especially your reasoning behind the designation of "bag" as the term, followed shortly by a man-with-murse montage to "Vogue." Love. It.

I'm all for the murses. As a college student, they're fashion meets practicality. I'm a girl, so luckily totes in general are old hat, but apparently, they're *the* thing in Korea, so I'm seeing all of the boys come back from summer break rocking their super trendy imported murses, in a variety of materials and colors. I wish more American boys would pick up on the idea, because chipmunk pockets are a big no.

I say rock the murse with pride!

Bye, bitches. :o)

First off . . . your video was cracking me the f' up. I agree . . . better than the original. Secondly, I have a messenger bag, but I don't carry it everywhere I go . . . just to work or to the theatre or places where I need to carry something other than my wallet, keys, phone, and yes . . . an inhaler too. **screams** ASTHMATICS UNITE **weezes and then takes a couple of puffs**

You forgot my personal favorite - mandals!

I remember days
Or at least I try
But as years go by
They're sort of haze
And the bluest ink
Isn't really sky
And at times I think
I would gladly die
For a day of sky

I think it depends on the style. Messenger bags are o.k.

LOL!

The distinction for me finally became two things:

1. getting the crap out of my pockets--I have often had a messenger bag with me. That became the norm from not having a car to leave things ever since I moved to NYC.

2. bringing the bag to places I would normally go bagless. I still wrestle with this. It is not fun having a bag in crowded bars. BUT, I don't have to worry about getting pickpocketed. And, I don't have chipmunk pockets or a fanny phone--which has almost fallen off many times from pushy queens who NEED to get past you RIGHT NOW. And when you have a PDA of some kind, you can't just stick it in your pocket.

I am very guilty of the pocket bulges when I go out to bars and clubs....but really there is nothing I can do about it. I need my wallet, metropass, keys and a few other things on me that I can't put elsewhere.

I was starting to look like a raver with all the stuff in my pockets- so that's why a bag works wonders.

That and during art school I had to carry so much stuff that carrying a bag just became habit.

Don't get it twisted - I don't carry like chapstick and compact mirrors like some of my other guy friends do. I carry gum, markers, sketch pads, mints, gluesticks, pens, stickers, magazines, ya know the necessities.

Mateo likes to make arts & crafts on the subway.

I wish I was on the subway- but I do on the road arts and crafts, yes. I should have a show on HGTV.

oh and btw- I am eating Twizzlers as I write this. :)

Mateo...yeah. I have a backpack that has my sketchbooks, day planner,reading, basic art supplies and lately my MacBook for meetings, that I carry around with me everywhere. But I still like to keep my wallet on me for safety purposes, plus it is just a pain to dig through my bad to get at it when I need it.

ooo a MacBook. I'll take one!

Well I do the same- I keep my wallet in my pocket but everything else in the bag.


Good idea Raviloisun! :)
