Papa's Got A Brand New Bag!

It's meme week here at SCOPE-TECH. I received this post tag from Sassy Britches, who got it from Alice, who got it from Bella, who got it from Nic. Sassy Britches somehow found out that I carried a man-purse ( IT'S EUROPEAN! ), probably because I mentioned it or something.

Here are the rules:

1 - Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you can't go into your closet and pull out your favorite purse! We want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.

2 - List how much it cost. And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, we’d love to hear it.

3 - Tag some chicks--or dudes if you prefer. And link back to this post so people know why the heck you’re showing everyone your bag.


Here's a quick pic of Mach-3. It's the 3rd generation murse. The first one started off as a CD case, for a player, some CDs and batteries. But I did take it on vacations with me, as effectively a big pocket. Gen-2 was about the size of my current bag. I got it at a hiking store, and it was really handy, but I finally decided I needed to kick it up a notch and go leather.

It feels really nice to the touch, and I like the bold stitching, and the leather pulls.

And since you've had it in your head since you saw the title:

Yay for murses! I love how most of you guys played along.

Cora said...

FANTASTIC!!!! Doing this as a video was a GREAT idea, Scope!

You have Scope-Tech business cards? And you hand them out? To real live people? Hee hee. That's about the coolest thing I've ever heard. I don't think I could get away with something like that, handing out Love Letters By Cora business cards....uhh, no....might give people the wrong idea. (wink)

Did I ever tell you you have a nice voice? Whenever I hear your voice it reminds me of someone but I can never think who....? It'll come to me one day. Hopefully.

GREAT MEME! AND A GREAT MURSE! (very manly, not like Joey's on Friends (snicker)) :-)

But you can call me Miss... said...

Hi, I'm here from Sassy B's, but may I be so bold to ask...

were those elephant house shoes I almost saw on your feet, somewhere around the "sunglasses" conversation?

:) Just Wondering :)

I love it when a man is secure enough in his masculinity to carry a murse!!

Great job. I LOVE the Scope-Tech business cards-a great idea-I've got to do that!

Have a great weekend with the fabulous Gwen and take care of things for me while I am away-you know get rid of any spammers or nasty commenters that could jack my site.
Have a great weekend!

Cora said...

The dino slippers? SEXY. Ohhhh, yes.


A manly murse, sexy slippers, cool art, uber flirting skillz.... why the hell don't you live in Seattle?!?!

Sassy Britches said...

Soooooo glad But You Can Call Me Miss copped to the slippers. This just adds to your coolness.

Fan-freakin'-TAS-tic murse meme! I cannot believe that you can fit all of that into that murse. I am duly impressed.

And LOVE that you did a VIDEO; Cora's right...your voice remiinds me of someone too...fun mystery to solve involving many downloads of your meme to listen.

YES for the business cards!

Have fun on your visit!

Lisa said...

Call it a murse if that makes you feel better, but seriously, you carry that around and you're just a man with a pocketbook.


Lisa said...

oh, and dude, you carry more crap in your pocketbook than I do! That bag doesn't look big enough for all that stuff.

I tried to facebook you but there are like 50 gazillion eric collins on there. i found one in chicago but couldn't tell if it was you.

and why no face on the vlog??? we want some face time.

Can't decide if that bag is really European or really gay. Probably really gay.

I do have a big camera bag that I've been known to bring places. It holds my 3' camera. And other stuff. It's kind of like my man purse.

Scope, you fit a LOT of stuff into that bag. Are you going away for the weekend? I think I saw a couple of clowns climb out of it.

Zibbs, don't ask if it's really European or really gay. That's redundant.

Tenakim said...

wow- a murse it is very European (gay). You carry a lot of crap in there, too- where's your tampons? (-:

Morgan the Muse said...

Nice... murse... it is very you.

~E said...

YAY! Another dude who carries a practical bag and doesn't haul all their possesions in their pockets.


~E said...

I didnt even realize it was a video till just now!

Another kudos for the creativity.

And yet another kudos for having a nice man-voice! ;)

Vodka Mom said...

a murse? A MURSE???

okay, I love it- Tightwad calls his a Travel Bag.

Scope said...

The slippers are actually gargoyles, and I was wearing them on purpose, to see if people would notice.

Guys cheat on the bag thing all the time. I know a lot of guys who carry far more crap, but just do it in a backpack everyday to and from work. Oh, they pretend it's for their laptop, but I don't think the unbrella, newspaper, and bottle of water are strickly speaking, computer gear.

I'm just honest about it, and don't feel like loading my pockets down with a bunch of carp. I think this one was called a "day bag", and normally, I just call it, "my bag", but the meme was about "purses", so I went heavy on the "murse."

That's a sweet ass bag, bro.
