The Green Editorial Pouch and Its Progeny

Working at Chronicle Books frequently entails gathering up your notebook and your pen and your wallet and your cell phone and your swipe-card for the elevator, and taking them all downstairs with you to Ironside, the cafe in the ground floor of our building, for a caffeinated meeting with visitors or coworkers. And if you are me, when your hands get that full of that many things, you frequently start to drop and/or forget stuff. So as a present to myself (on the occasion of my promotion to Senior Editor (which, honestly, I still can't get over, eeeeee!)) I bought myself the kelly green leather pouch with yellow zipper, pictured above, from American Apparel, to throw all my stuff in and carry down to coffee meetings with me. And I love it. That was what this Publishing Wednesday blog post started out to be about: a recent new enjoyable accoutrement to my job as editor. But what happened? Well, I did a google image search to find a picture of the thing, sorted my search by the color green, and almost immediately found myself tumbling down the image search rabbit hole: photos of pouches, photos of green apparel, photos of random green things. This is what happens. Nor am I inclined to resist it. See for yourself...
