As I wait, refreshing my flist every few seconds just in case, patiently for the next instalment of melyanna_65's Giffoni report - I started wondering about something she mentioned in a previous post - whatever does Elijah have in that ubiquitous bag? It's so big - it sometimes looks too big for his wee body!! I used to think it was probably full of cd's - but why would he need them if he has his ipod? All I can think of is: ipod; camera; sunglasses; lip-salve;) possibly a book or mag; cell phone. Any suggestions? Oh, and just in case anyone didn't know, Melyanna got an exclusive interview with Lij at Giffoni:D *refreshes flist*

My guess- it looks like a laptop computer bag.

i had the fortune of peeking into his bag quickly. it was fairly dark, but from what i could tell, there were those things you mentioned. a small book, his camera i think, and looked like his glasses were in there. (i guess in case one of his contacts fell out) a think a comb, and yes...cd's were in there! there were other things, but i couldn't see that well. he keeps his cell phone and wallet in his jeans pocket.

not that i was checking or anything. ;-)

must dash over to melyanna's!

So ... you have seen inside the sacred bag!! I'm impressed:) You didn't happen to notice if his glasses were in a case, did you? And if they were, was this case by any chance a sort of tan brown color with a pic of a kiwi on the front? Just wondering;) And er - this would only apply after August last year:D

it was in september last year but no case. sorry. sounds like you know something. oh-la-la! ;-)

the glasses were just laying inside so they probably could have been sunglasses. i don't think most people who carry their glasses have them just tossed inside a bag. but i kinda put 2 and 2 together and came up with glasses, because it was night-time. would he carry sunglasses at night?

his cigarettes must have been in there too but i couldn't see them. he did smoke (inside the building). i guess some people got it like that. :)

"sounds like you know something"

Sadly, no. Its just that one of the gifts I gave him from New Zealand (at ELF 2005)was a glasses case - it was really nice too, I'd love to know if he uses it:)

you were at ELF last year? totally missed you. the case sounds like a keeper to me. i bet he has it. i know he has one of the gifts i gave him last year, and i have hopes he used another.

A lot of guys carry some sort of bag whether it be a messenger bag, briefcase or something for a laptop computer. They are usually that size or bigger. It's the male equivalent of a woman's purse except "male" acceptable.

As I said to Frodoholic above - I'd never thought about a laptop - that would certainly fill up the space:)

Water bottle? He always carries water it seems. Cigarettes?

I'd actually thought about the water bottle & forgot to include it!! However, I had forgotten about the cigarettes - probably a subconscious thing - don't want to accept that he smokes:(

*hugs you hugs you*

Thank you for mentioning me here! I'm currently writing my second installment, so you may expect an update tomorrow or Monday.

Yes, THE BAG. When I saw him arriving with that huge bag (he is so thin and small and that bag is far too big!) I wondered (curious as I am) what there could be inside.

My guess goes no further than yours (camera, sunglasses, cell phone ..., maybe something to clean his contact lens). Or maybe he is just trying to get back to the old days of Casey Connor ..

Hugs you again!!!

There's the ever-present water bottle too - which I forgot to include. Also, unfortunately, cigarettes. Others have suggested a laptop - though Chocolatebuny - who has SEEN inside - did not witness a laptop. Looking forward to tomorrow!! (or Monday) *hugs*

Heh I was wondering about that too :) I thought of a laptop as well because when he's travelling he might want to stay in touch with his family. But even though his bag keeps shape like there's stuff in it I don't know if it looks like he's got a laptop in there...and it might get a bit much carrying it everywhere anyway when he could leave it at a hotel.

I thought cds too but then I thought he'd have an ipod, but I see CB said he does have cd's in it :)

I think he usually carries his cigarettes and phone in his pockets. But yeah I'd say sunglasses/reading glasses and water bottle and wallet. That's what I carry anyway :)

I love your icon too btw! I love melyanna_65's reports too :)

"But yeah I'd say sunglasses/reading glasses and water bottle and wallet."

And don't forget the lip salve!! Just in case you're mystified by that - some time ago a little video clip surfaced of him at a concert with friend Jason where he was applying some lip salve - so now we know how he keeps those lips so luscious!!

Ahh, I'd wondered why people have commented about the lip balm thing! Thank you for explaining it :) I don't normally use any but I got a free one with an ice cream one day so I use that sometimes :)

While I haven't seen IN the bag like ChocolateBuny (enterprising little thing, isn't she?) I can say that I've walked very closely behind him while he was carrying it, and it conformed too much to his body to have a lap-top in it. I'll bet he has the current day's crossword in there, a writing implement of some sort, and maybe a script or two?

I can't tell you how much I love the fact that he does crosswords - I've been addicted to them for as long as I can remember!!

I happen to know the one bag contains the following essentials:

one cheese & pickle sandwich (without crusts)
one Vick stick (for blocked-up noses)
one Mills and Boon novelette
a spare pair of pants
an almost empty Hermesetas dispenser
a box of Tic Tacs
a 'to do' list for the day
a knitting pattern, needles and half-finished matinee jacket for baby Jack Boyd
two compromising photos of Dom

*g*

:D
