My new notebook bag

I’ve finally found a notebook bag that is suitable for academic conferences aka it looks classy and doesn’t resemble a notebook bag at all. I tried very hard to be sensible and choose the black version, but what can I say? the cherry red bag beamed at me from the top shelf in the shop and I just couldn’t resist. 🙂

    Really, who can resist cherry red?? (my kitchen counter tops are cherry red. I had to do it. Had to.)

    And Robin Hood!! I only recently heard about this one! I can’t wait to see it!!

    I love your new bag. Wish I had one just like it. And how could you not choose cherry red. It is such a classic with just the right hint of flare and individuality – it’ll look great with any ensemble.

    Can I ask where you finally bought it from? I’ve been looking for a laptop bag that doesn’t scream “LAPTOP!” – your bag is pretty excellent. And given that I’m in Canada, it’s not like we’d ever run into each other with the same bag. 🙂

    Kate, the back is from Filofax — don’t know whether you can get their stuff in Canada.

    Adair, that’s exactly what I thought. 🙂 And when you think about those very serious academic conferences where everybody wears a suit or at least dark clothes, a flash of red is a Very Good Thing indeed.

    Seeley, the plot isn’t that great in most episodes, Robin Hood looks like he isn’t yet old enough to wear a beard, and that we’re supposed to believe he fought in the crusade is a bit of a joke (if this guy can lift a real sword I’m Jeanne d’Arc!), BUT the baddies are brilliant. Keith Allen as the Sheriff of Nottingham is beyond great, and Richard Armitage … well, he’s Richard Armitage. So even with guyliner, he’s HOT! (Pssst, there’s a naked-chest scene in the second or third episode of Season 2)
