Inspired by a friend's (locked) post:

What is the weirdest thing you regularly carry in your purse/pockets/fanny pack/backpack/whatever you usually carry?

Two chopstick rests

My birthmother carries a small package of marbles. she claims it's so no one can say she's lost hers.
The oddest thing in my bag currently is an expandable grocery bag, which is not really odd. Or the folding pair of scissors.

Yeah, I always have string bags with me.

I know one other person who does. I currently have a home-made cloth napkin in my bag, but not on a daily basis.

How come?

kyubi gave them to me. They seem happy in there and make me smile.

A tiny miniature ouija board. I made it in 1987, when I was thirteen years old and a ouija board freak. It's kind of scaring me that I've been carrying this thing around with me for almost twenty years.
Dec. 22nd, 2006 10:48 pm (UTC)
Wow, that is pretty cool! Does it have a little thingie-you-slide-around-on-the-top-of-a-ouija-board to go with it?

My usual bag is either the day-glow yellow messenger bag I take to work or the pirate booty bag, both of which are weirder than anything I carry inside them. Unless you consider carrying a knitting project everywhere you go weird. (-:

Dec. 22nd, 2006 10:49 pm (UTC)
I don't think a knitting project counts as weird. Maybe I should carry one too. (I only do on special occasions.) But then I'd have to get a bigger bag.
Dec. 22nd, 2006 07:38 pm (UTC)
I don't know, I'm sure there's a lot of competition from both inside and outside the backpack. Maybe the (Harry Potter) wizard coins can have the title for today.
Dec. 22nd, 2006 10:49 pm (UTC)
That counts!

Asian style face mask
I always carry a face mask with me just in case I might be where there are a TON of sick people. But mine has little kawaii things stiched on it, like a panda, 4-leaf clover, or bunny.

Re: Asian style face mask
I've seen hello kitty face masks. So they work, huh? I've thought of taking them on airplanes.
Dec. 22nd, 2006 07:44 pm (UTC)
A human tooth? If not that, probably the fairy ball.
Dec. 22nd, 2006 10:50 pm (UTC)
I think the human tooth is weirder.

A tuning fork. I got stopped by airport screeners because of it once. Or maybe it was because I had three of them. They seemed to think it was a giant roach clip.
Dec. 22nd, 2006 10:51 pm (UTC)
Airport screeners can be pretty imaginative in what they think has an illicit-pharmaceutical connection, can't they?

A small rock from Puget Sound
Dec. 22nd, 2006 08:30 pm (UTC)
My notebook. It is not, in itself, intrinsically weird, but some of the notes contained within it are exceedingly random...
Dec. 22nd, 2006 08:32 pm (UTC)
About a dozen vials of BPAL in all scents.

Or maybe the measuring tape on my keychain.

Dec. 22nd, 2006 08:48 pm (UTC)
Three knitting projects - but that's not particularly weird. Perhaps the tape measure might be a little weird...
Dec. 22nd, 2006 10:52 pm (UTC)
If two people who commented at the same time carry the same thing, I don't know if it's weird...

No, I don't smoke
Tobacco. I carry it in a little round metal tin that used to hold mints.

A friend of mine who's Native American talked me into watching the Jim Jarmusch movie Dead Man, and afterwards he kept asking if I had any tobacco. It's sort of a recurring thing in the movie. Has to do with dying and the afterlife and it's just a good thing to have. So I went out and bought some pipe tobacco, and I've carried it around ever since.

Re: No, I don't smoke
Does it make your bag smell wonderful. I don't smoke, either, but I love the smell of pipe tobacco (usually hate a cigar smell, although I think my guardian angel smokes one.)

There's nothing really weird now, but I tend to wear out my fanny pack by accumulating way too many coins.

I used to carry practically everything in my bag, and it was rather heavy. A friend once said, "I'll bet you even have a flashlight in there?" Normally I did not, but by chance I had just put a huge flashlight in there for a specific purpose, and hadn't taken it out yet. I often thought about buying a toy kitchen sink just in case somebody said something.
Dec. 22nd, 2006 10:54 pm (UTC)
I've destroyed a lot of wallets by carrying too many coins.

A flashlight seems like something that makes sense to carry, not weird at all.
