The Burning House

Luca Cavallaro. I like that his baby is in the picture.
I came across a fascinating blog yesterday called The Burning House. A bunch of people submitted a list and photo of the things they would take with them if their house was on fire. Almost all of them have a camera and at least one Apple product (as you can see from their stuff they're all artsy types).

It's an interesting concept and although somewhat less artsy, it reminds me of the rom-com Leap Year in which the main character realizes if her house was burning she wouldn't want anything in it. Anyway, what would you take with you?
I'd take a pair of socks my grandmother knit me, my Bible (the one with the notes in it), my ideas book that I've been working on for 4 years, little bag o' jewelry--none of it expensive but collected piece by piece, my computer cause they're so expensive to replace and my pictures on it (in a pinch I'd just bring my external hard drive where it's all backed up, probably a camera, and if I was in America the quilt my mom and grandmother made for me.
