One thought on “Crackberry cold turkey

  1. In my computer profession I have:
    my own crackberry (Curve 8310)
    computer keyboard
    mouse pad.
    name plate holder with cheesy wood grained name plate.
    I carry all of these items around with me from job to job.
    In cooking I have my own knives and knife bag. Since cooks fall into the same “realm” as carpenters, and mechanics. The “shop” tools are not always “usable”.
