Don’t you love, with a sort of geeky fetishism, getting an official carrying bag for some new gizmo or other? Oh… you don’t. Above all that, are we? Well, sadly, I’m not. Nope, I love tucking a gadget into its perfectly-matched, accurately-sized carrying case, especially if said case carries some sort of emblem saying what’s inside — tastefully, of course.
Today Eleya brought me home my long-awaited carrying case for my newest Line 6 gizmo, and of course I wasted no time tearing open the box and pathetically rushing downstairs to tuck the hitherto unprotected gizmo into its fresh new case. And thus the terrible giant Geek of Tastefully Branded, Accessorized Goods is appeased, and falls back into its dreamless slumber until the next piece of portable electronic bric-a-brac goes too long unshielded from the merciless assault of the elements, or at least those not quite so merciless elements that occur more or less indoors.
