    No phone? Or maybe that's in your pocket?

    A) I took the photo with my phone, and B) iPhone 5 is usually in my pocket for easier access--I tried putting it in the photo left side pocket with the ultra-suede, but I tend to habitually swing my bag around to the other side of my body when I need something, which was a time-consuming error. I don't like putting my phone in the other pocket with my pens, but I'm getting the pencil organizer soon, which may solve the problem. Plus, I often listen to music as I commute and haven't found remote earbuds I like--the ones pictured are my extras with different sized jelly plugs for each ear to fit my tragus piercings better and for noise cancellation (working in the library, etc.), but at the moment I use the new Apple earbuds when I'm walking.

    The S19 is a fantastic daily carry bag.

    Hi Kiddo, where did you get the hard candies? Had a dream about them not long ago!

    Used to get a box when I was travelling as a child.

    These are not so good to put in your mouth right before delivering a lecture, but I'm fond of them in most other contexts.

    I bought those candies locally, unfortunately--though I think I remember Whole Foods (and similar organic stores) stocking them as well from time to time. I was disappointed that the store I bought them from only had one flavor, though!

    I try to stay as far away as possible from The Collective!


    Thank you so much for reminding me of the name, itsablur, I will be hunting for a local source.

    Let's hope I don't have to fight a Klingon for the last tin of my favorite flavor, well... I'll just call the negotiator!


    In case somebody doesn't know, I am using Star Trek references.
