You know how it is, when you're going to an informational company… - cellophane
the story of an invisible girl

You know how it is, when you're going to an informational company meeting? And you don't want to bring a notebook or anything, because you don't want it to be in your way, having to balance it on your knees during the meeting? Especially since you think there will be snacks, so you don't want to be juggling your notebook and your muffin and your drink? Plus, you're pretty sure that there will be handouts, so all you need is a pen in your pocket? But you feel a tiny bit guilty showing up with just a pen, in case you do want to write something down but there's nothing to write on? And you're afraid people will laugh at you if you write on your hand? So you take a single postit note, just in case, because that will easily fit in your pocket? And you doubt the meeting will have more material than will fit on the postit anyway? Then you wrap the postit note around your pen, sticky-side toward the pen, and put them both in your pocket? Then when you're actually at the meeting, sitting there with your handout (you knew there'd be a handout), your muffin, and your Sprite (because they were out of Diet Coke), the pen starts kinda jabbing your hip? So you pull it out of your pocket, and the postit is all folded and wrinkled and unwinding from the pen, and it looks ridiculous, and you're annoyed that you bothered to bring either of them, because there's nothing worth writing down anyway? You know how that is?

Yeah. That happens to me all the time too.

We need to get you a palm pilot so that we can bypass this whole trauma about the pen/paper scenario.

Actually yes, I have a Palm, but it's even larger than my pen, and fits in my pocket even more poorly -- which is why I didn't bring it.

they have belt holsters for palm pilots, or you can get cargo pants and just dump it one of those pant pockets.

Well....your carrying ability is much different, when you're a 5'1" girl. At least, mine is. (:

hey! the food juggling alone is so difficult, but i've never seen anyone talk about it before. i always end up putting my drink on the floor, and then have to worry about kicking it over.
