onefixedstar: (mystery)
I allowed myself to become a pawn of advertising and bought one of the ePac backpacks that have been advertised everywhere in Toronto for the last month or so. And yes, I must admit, I love it. My love does not arise from the quality of the construction or design (both are decent enough, but not substantially better than my last backpack). It's not the padded straps, or the separate iPod carrying case, or even the clever bottom-zip pouch that lets you pull things out when it's stowed under the seat in front of you on the airplane. No, my love arises solely from the fact that this bag possesses a separate laptop pouch that actually holds my 15.4" widescreen laptop. No muss, no fuss, just a simple slot to slip my laptop into. It's lovely. And it will be even lovelier the next time I go through airport security, and am able to leave the security area with my laptop in my bag, rather than hobbling along (my shoes having also been x-rayed) with laptop in one hand and backpack in the other because I couldn't put the two back together without taking everything else out and you can't use the search tables to repack.

Also, on a completely unrelated note, grapefruit and avocado is a surprisingly tasty combination. (We skipped the lobster...)
