a tote note


I have a very strong aversion to messenger-style laptop bags. There’s just something downright distasteful about that tough nylon textile, those padded shoulder straps, the automatic “urban dweller” label that gets attached to anyone who hoists one of these multicolor monstrosities across their body. In honor of my slick new MacBook Pro—my first new computer in over a decade—I opted for the more chic and versatile Cambridge leather satchel by Nixon. The hobo-style bag is roomy enough to haul my laptop (cushioned, of course, in a faux-fur-lined neoprene sleeve by InCase), multiple Moleskine notebooks (reporter essentials), a Sigg water bottle (hydration!) and, of course, the kitchen sink. —LML

  1. With all of the things you will be carrying in that bag it sounds like you might need some fashionable back support as well. Be careful carrying water in the same bag as your computer!

  2. Nice writing with the clever send-up. In this case, the “kitchen sink” remark made the post.
