But, that aside, the latest reason I've come up with why I don't care for any of the myriad bags currently decorating my office is because they don't have the enough pockets, or at least right kind of pockets that I want. So, all my junk ends up floating around in one big pocket. While the opportunities for my flash memory to make friends with a book of stamps or a spare contact lens are not lost on me (socialization is important, you know, especially for Sony products), I'd prefer a bit more control than that. And yes, I was one of those kids who didn't want any of the different foods on my plate to touch, to answer your question.
So, I decided to take the problem into my nimble, attractive hands (I'm a hand model, you know) and find a solution. That is, a solution other than buying more bags, each of them a vain struggle for laptop toting nirvana. (You know as well as I that I'll find some "serious" "flaw" with the bag about a month into use and decide I need a new one.) I decided that I needed an insert for my existing bag, which would help me lasso up all of those wily cables, adapters, Zapruder tape fragments and so forth and keep them in some kind of order so I wouldn't erupt into fits of blind rage every time I open a pocket. Plus, it would be nice if I could reconfigure it on a whim, since I'm just a whimful person like that.
And that's what I made: an insert for my laptop bag to organize my junk, and that I can rearrange when I get the urge to do so next week. It's modular, like some homes.
