Jenn is the awesome.

In case anyone wasn’t aware (and I’m not sure how that could possibly be the case, but on the off chance…) Jenn is absolutely awesome. She got me an early Christmas / birthday / lots of other things gift: a Tom Binh Brain Bag. (With the problems with my knees, I need to stop carrying so much weight in shoulder bags, and I had somehow managed to give away all of my backpacks. So, Jenn to the rescue.)

This thing is awesome. I’m packing up for a couple of days away, and have crammed a ton of stuff into it:

  • 15″ MacBook Pro in protective case
  • Clipboard with knitting patterns / agendas
  • Ginormous InDesign book
  • Knitting book
  • iPad
  • Kindle
  • 4 knitting projects
  • Colored pencils / sharpener / erasers
  • Cables and batteries
  • Camera
  • Meds

And there’s probably still room for a couple of changes of clothes, though I’ll probably throw that in another bag, since I don’t quite have the organization-fu down with the new bag yet. And it doesn’t feel heavy on my back, and rides perfectly. I am absolutely delighted.
