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?

This is strange I know but I never, ever, ever go anywhere without two small rocks in my pocket. They are just always there. I collect them in pairs from places that I visit and the carry them with me a"t all times, taking turns to give each one an airing"
As I am writing this I am becoming increasingly aware of how odd this makes me sound, but I'm not really honestly, this just gives me some kind of calming feeling

My friend (I’ll call her Susan - that is not her name but she needs to be protected in case for some fluky reason she can be identified from this story), was going out with this guy that she was quite keen on, and it soon came time to be introduced to his parents.

They went to his folks’ place and the evening was progressing fairly well, until Susan decided she needed to go to the loo. As she was a bit nervous, she needed a number 2, but try as she might, the bastard wouldn’t flush away. Cue much desperate flushing and the minutes ticking past as she got more and more sweaty and frantic. Eventually her bf knocked on the door to ask if she was OK. She made up a feeble story about touching up her make up and he went back to the living room.

In a panic she then grabbed a load of loo roll and scooped the log out of the loo, wrapped it up tightly and placed it carefully in the bottom of her handbag, where it stayed, safely swaddled, for the rest of the evening. Now THAT’S odd.

mmmm, saline.
I carry a one litre bag of 0.45% saline and 4% glucose solution, and all the kit neccessary to connect it directly to a vein. Not only does the bag double as a handy travel pillow, hangovers are a thing of the past.
Unfortunately I have yet to perfect the art of efficiently inserting cannulas into myself one handed while pissed so I now have more puncture wounds in my arms than a forty year old liverpudlian prostitute.

And the g/f's credit card...Mwahahahhahahaha!

Small packets of salt. Useful for causing severe pain with open wounds, making magickal circles or general magick cleansing, throwing over your shoulder for luck, making water dense enough to float in, making water habitable to marine fish, melting ice and as an effective facial scrub.

But I don't like chips!

A Duck Call.
From a gentle rasp, to an almighty quack, it's a source of portable amusement to me.

Plus if the Ducks ever take over, I'll be able to talk my way out of trouble with it.

Can't live without a Cabcharge
In Australia we have these amazing (and handy) things called a Cabcharges. They are basically the same as cheques but you use them to pay taxi fares. Thousands of businesses have these cabcharges so that their employees can get around town at the full expense of the company. And unfortunately that is what happens - they are used to get home after Friday night drinks, to the girlfriend's place or anywhere you damn like. Nice one.

Pink paper
I still carry around a little note from my ex-girlfriend, saying, "Benjamin [as that is my name], you are a hotfiend!". It's written on a piece of paper that she coloured in pink, the most hateful of all colours!

She's no longer speaking to me, so I should throw it away...

Essential Items I carry with Me at All Times
While this may seem strange, my three essential items are:
1) A tin opener. This is because you never know when you're going to need to lever a man out of plate armour.
2) WD40. Chainmail rusts and when it rusts it grates. A quick coat of WD40 frees up your chainmail and allows you freedom of movement and less annoying noises.
3) Liquid Latex. When your ears fall off, stick them back on with Liquid Latex.

(I would like ot add, I am not therocker, I am the colleague of therocker using her account. Thanks, Rach.)

A constant insipid feeling of self-loathing
The almost certain knowledge I masterbate more than is good for me.
The fear that this may be all there is.
Needling doubt in my abilities to function as an adult.
I would add my Leatherman, but since half of B3ta seems to carry one, I guess it doesn't count as odd.

i always have...
generally i have-
the phone, firstly in case of emergencys and telling the parents i will be late and so on, and for finding where everyone i am supposed to be meeting actually is
the walkman, a sony NW HD1, containing all the music i need, used pretty much constantly drowning out noise or to give me something to actually listen to while in a lecture or walking somewhere or so on
the wallet, with the usual crap - id, bank card, cash, collection of used cinema stubs, etc...
guitar picks, i play guitar, so try to have a stash of picks on my person at all times, a couple in my wallet, and i used to keep a couple inside the cover of my phone, which unfortunately dosent work now i have a new one
when i remember, a little swiss army knife, just generally useful thing to have, though i dont carry it as much now in case of getting searched going somewhere and it getting nicked
usually my housekeys too, to let me get back in when everyone else has buggered off
when i have the excuse, (ie when i am intending pickig up a lot of stuff, or need to carry a jacket or whatever) i try and take my bag with me (generic rucksack) useful for holding jacket and whatever else i need, and a book of some sorts to amuse me and stop me falling asleep on the bus

lately i got a new phone which is awesome - a sony w800i that now holds a selection of music and cartoons - it means i dont need to carry the walkman somewhere 'risky' (ie in town at night, or to a gig) it dosent hold anywhere near as much as the walkman, so its only used when i dont want to be carrying both, foir the bus rides into town or whatnot on the night out. the cartoons are awesome too, sme dilbert and futurama atm, crappy resolution on the little screen, but awesome for watching no the bus to keep me amused

actually I just remembered
when I was 16 and going through my hippie stage, I used to walk around with two chinese excercise balls in my pockets - one in each. The bells in them sounded like distant gonging, and I enjoyed the effect on people as I walked down the street - they'd look around trying to work out where on earth that strange noise was coming from.
