    Thanks! Yes, its a Little Swift. These items are some of my very favorite ones in my collection. They make me happy just looking at them. Would love a return of Azalea and Synapses in 200d halcyon colors. I also wish I had found Tom Bihn sooner.

    Ok I'll play too...
    1. What bag/accessories are you carrying (items + colors, pics always welcome)?
    a non-TB leather purse with TB bags inside. Love my new island cubelet, the perfect convenient size for misc. purse things. may have to pick up an aubergine cubelet, my fav color.
    2. What are you reading?
    another librarian here. just finished Naomi Alderman's The Power, awesome feminist dystopian novel. rather thought provoking.
    am now reading Lakey's Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians Got It Right-and How We Can, Too and binge reading Benedict Jacka's Alex Verus fantasy series, total fantasy escapism fun.
    3. What are you playing or watching (movies, theatre, video games, etc.)?
    too busy reading I guess.
    4. What are you listening to?
    moody lovely Scandi indie folk music by Agnes Obel (thanks for that Icelandic Olaf Arnalds link somewhere else on the forums, Matthew, (at least I think it was you), that was a fun rabbit hole to chase down listening to),
    & a podcast a librarian colleague recommended, The Dream, about pyramid schemes, get rich quick schemes, & MLMs, multi-level marketing. interesting stuff.
    5. What are you cooking/baking/drinking?
    all the coffee, but at night when that would be unwise, Portland tea company Townshend's tasty decaf Highland chai.
    6. What are you making/creating/doing?
    usually heading to the Oregon coast with the doodle dog.
    7. Where have you gone lately? -or- What travel destinations are on the horizon for you?
    Joshua Tree a few weeks ago, so sunny & dry & beautiful. very quiet due to the gov't shutdown too, which was both good and bad considering they need the entrance fees.
    trip to Bend, OR is next.

    Bonus question:
    In the grand tradition of NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour: What's giving you life/making you happy this year?
    dog + nature = joy.

    1. When traveling, I've been mostly bag-rocking the Aeronaut 30. I like it because it says, "hey, hey man, that laptop. Do you need that? Cuz, maybe you don't." And if I can detach from work, a trip is always better. When I can't detach from work, I bring along a Pilot. For daily carry, I actually use a non-TB bag. I know, I know. But it's a good one and is made in San Francisco.
    2. Have you been reading Coyote America by Dan Flores? Because I have. It's everything you never knew about the American coyote; how it survived adversity and non-stop extermination efforts, its folklore in native culture, all that. Did you know many native Americans had coyotes central to their creation myths and that coyotes will dynamically adjust their litter sizes based on population levels? I did, because I've been reading that book.
    3. I also recently read Marie Kondo's The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, along with watched her Netflix show. I had heard Judge John Hodgman name-dropping her now for a few years, and once her Netflix show went viral, I was like, "hey, that's the woman Hodgman sings the praises of." I've also been watching Russian Doll on Netflix, which is just, it's good. Watch it. Do it. It sparks joy.
    4. I've been listening to The Shakey Graves and Foxygen a lot lately.
    5. For cooking and baking, I did a month of low-carb living with my wife. I've been working on an eggs denedict recipe to surprise her with where the English muffins are replaced with cauliflower cakes.
    6. Most recent long-haul travel destination was Italy, but I've up to Michigan lately, which was challenging because since I've been hanging out in Mexico, I don't have much cold weather clothes. That was... that was challenging.


    Since travel makes me happy, I'll leave you with a picture of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico, where I've been "living" (sort of, on and off) for the past year or so.

    1. What bag/accessories are you carrying (items + colors, pics always welcome)?
    Currently I'm carrying a Burnt Orange Pilot with a couple of pins in it (I'm probably the last millenial to get into enamel pins) and a Coyote #2 Minimalist Wallet.

    2. What are you reading?
    I'm reading through my copy of All We Ever Wanted: Stories of a Better World -- a compilation of optimistic future/sci-fi short comics.

    3. What are you playing or watching (movies, theatre, video games, etc.)?
    I got God of War (AKA Dad of Boy) for my birthday and I played that through -- it 100% deserves the praise it received last year. My wife and I are also re-watching Game of Thrones in preparation for the final season.

    4. What are you listening to?
    I haven't been listening to really anything specific lately.

    5. What are you cooking/baking/drinking?
    Two Beers down the way put out a good new hazy IPA with a great name: Praxis.

    6. What are you making/creating/doing?
    I made a New Year's resolution to start writing creatively again, so I've been doing some of that.

    7. Where have you gone lately? -or- What travel destinations are on the horizon for you?
    Nothing concrete right now.

    In the grand tradition of NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour: What's giving you life/making you happy this year?
    I chose this question because like some of you my wife and I have had a rough go of it lately with both of us having family members dying within a week of one another and sometimes it's nice to focus on the good things. For me personally, its been watching the MCU movies with my wife. I originally watched them with friends/alone but after she watched Infinity War she wanted to go back and watch them all. It's been a great time since I've always been a Marvel Comics nerd!

    Dude on YouTube talking about medieval knights and horsemanship.
    Now I've started watching that, and I'm really enjoying it! Thanks! I especially like the episodes on medieval food of different social classes (episodes 13-16).
    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian.

    I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.
