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*
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.
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
You didn't happen to notice if his glasses were in a case, did you?
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. :)
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.
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!!
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 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
