two things I've been putting in the bottom of my laptop bag lately;
a trash bag and a knit cap

Especially now that winter is in the air (well, in Montana at least, but it's never far here) I always have a cap and gloves along, usually more.

I've been toughing it out and building up my cold resistance like I do every year. For the drive to work and the 200 metres from the parking lot to the office, I don't wear a jacket and most of the time I wear short sleeves. At this time of year, I normally get all kinds of odd-ball comments from my co-workers who begin to dress up in winter gear right about now! It was -6C this morning. That's getting down to my comfort level to go without a windbreaker. Tomorrow, I think I will start wearing gloves anyway even if I don't wear a jacket. smile

P.S. On Friday's there is always that one person - in this case a co-worker who wears his kilt to work all through winter. One proud Scottish guy. Let's just hope he doesn't go the traditional route and forget his underwear!

Also, that's probably too much paracord...
