This is a question Essential Items

Our friend always carries 30ft of lightweight rope with him. We took the piss until we heard he got stuck in a lift, and managed to get everyone out in 5 mins.

What odd things to you always carry with you?

I always carry
the deluded idea that because I post things on some stupid website it makes me cool, witty, attractive to the opposite sex, and I'm somehow better than other people who post because I *get it* and other people don't.

I always carry with me
every icon available on my profile, to prove that not only have I been on b3ta for ages, but it also shows I've posted more than a bunch of useless answers to QOTW that do more than complain about the answers to QOTW.

Unlike some of you cunts.

Pimp My Tweezers
I always have to carry around a pair of tweezers; never to tweeze anything, usually just to play them like micro-castanets. The rest of my family tolerate this, but won't let me carry the ones with the gold plated tips. They're too hizzle for mah fizzles, 'parrently. Plus tweezers in my possession tend to 'dissapear' or have 'accidents' [/mafioso]

Well, two mundane and an obscure. Go fish.
I always carry a small, cheap pen- my friend got it from her grandfather, a pen horder who got IT from a department store giveaway- small, bronze and incredibly unwieldy, not to mention out of ink. Because? You can fit small objects inside the barrel- cheat sheets, photos, incriminating evidence.

And away from the boring...
I also carry about 900 spare notecards, plus... for some freakishly bizzarre reason, a small plastic skull with its eyesockets colored purple. I call it Eliza, and it is the vehicle of all my irritating fidgeting.

What odd things to you always carry with you? ODD! Not your boring normal crap!
Apart from on nights out (I'm scared of losing it) I always carry around a 4cm by 2cm piece of foam.
I have a habit of chewing on things, especially nails and pens. One day when clearing out some cupboards I found the piece of foam and now adoringly call it my 'fiddle piece'. Whenever I get an urge to chew on a pen or rip my nails to shreds I get out my fiddle piece and no harm is done. I just like squeezing it constantly into different shapes.

And a drum key.

well typical girly stuff...
Essential:
Well theres the normal:
phone, lighter, fags, make up,

Then the more slightly obsure
a rabbit bag filled with letters for those tshirts...its amazing how immature my friends can be with velcro letters
body butter...not so random since it covers up the smell of fags so so so well

and a small blue bead which my friend matt claims are walrus eggs and are very rare..he stole 10 off a walrus using his army of seahorses, because of course in large numbers those seahorses can be pretty vicious

Why people *say* they carry these things.... They don't.
A drum key (Hey look at me, I play drums)

A plectrum (Hey look at me, I play guitar)

Cool gadget/ipod/psp/pda (Wow, how cool am I)

Gaffer tape. Essential.
I always, but always have a roll of gaffer tape on me, a relic of my days working in a theatre where I learnt that gaffer tape is like the Force: it has a light side, a dark side and binds the universe together. I also learnt to despise yanks (more) for their insistance on calling it duct tape, when they are in fact 2 totally different proiducts. Gaffer tape is a fabric backed tape, ducty tape is metal backed. Gaffer tape is also far more versatile with one exception and that is that due to the loose nature of it if it gets hot (Say from fixing ooh, I don't know maybe DUCTING) it falls apart. Anyway, fixed lots of things with it over the years, including more than one car and opn one memorable occasion myself when I managed to gash my arm open on a piece of wire and there was nothing else about to ue as a makeshift bandage except my t-shirt held in place with gaffer tape.

A railway ticket to Paddington from Gloucester dated 05/10/1999 in my wallet
Woke up to get my usual 6:30 ish train, when the missus wakes up with the raging horn and postpones me for half an hour, meaning i have to get the later train.
We reach Reading and have to stop as there has been an "incident" ahead. The train i was meant to be on had crashed badly, and the carriage i usually sat in was towards the front where some of the 31 dead had been.
So the moral of this item is:If she wants nookie in the morning, don't turn her down to avoid being late.

It also doubles up as a season ticket free pass for a quickie in the morning
(, Tue 1 Nov 2005, 14:03, Reply)
Not yet
But something I would like to have would be a little container holding salt,pepper and sugar. To beat those moments when you get on the train and realize you're coffees not sweet enough but you can't go back to the coffee shop.
Similiarly with the salt an pepper. I was imagining an amazing coat that would have compartments for these kind of things. (USB, small flash light, etc). My girlfriend thinks I'm crazy though.
