Material girl

This post is probably going to be full of spelling mistakes** because shockingly, I don’t have Microsoft Office installed in my new laptop. *gasp* Hence, I have no MS Word with its wonderful spell check, and even more useful, thesaurus. *sniff* Who ever heard of such a thing?

I thought that Office came with every computer—at least up until now that had been my experience! I took for granted, when I bought this LP, that it would come with everything I’d need. How young and foolish I was! I’ve had quite the weekend setting this thing up, downloading all my can’t-leave-without software and transferring my files and folders from my old LP to this one, *sigh* and let me tell you, half the stuff is not working! SO FUCKING FRUSTRATING!

Last night I went to bed thinking about all the material things I take for granted and made a mental list that I completely forgot LOL. Will try to recall some of the items, and maybe you guys can give it some thought and tell me what things you use every day, that if tomorrow were gone you’d go crazy without!
  • MSN Msgr. I would so go insane without this program. After all, Harlot needs me! What would she do without me? *wink*
  • Mobile phone. I left this at home Thursday night while I went to work for two hours to sign a contract and I might as well have left my clothes and undies; that naked I felt!
  • Tooth brush (is that one word?). This needs no explanation!
  • Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Foundation. Been using this since it came out in 1997. Would throw myself off a cliff if they discontinued it!
  • Tampons. How people lived before they were invented, I’ll never know. I’m just glad I was born after the fact! :P
Fuck, can’t remember the others and it was a big list. :/ Will think of more. Mmm...

**Er, Harlot, dear, if you could spell check for me that would be fab. *g* Ti voglio bene. *wink*

Trollop, hope you get your new laptop fix soon!

Here's my list:

Mobile phone, credit card - Can't go anywhere without those!

Soap, toiletries - You could be as pretty as can be, but without these, you'll still end up as attractive as Big Foot's feet.

TV - LOL I have to have my everyday shows.

Computer - I need to check my emails, and I have to visit this blog and see what you bitches come up to next. :P

Will be back later to think of more!

Things I can't do without:

Treadmill: I'd be pudgier than I already am without it.

Smart Phone: skip lugging the laptop around, I get email and can surf from my phone. Will occasionally leave it behind, but it lets me play hooky from work while keeping in touch in case something major comes up.

Modern Medicine: I couldn't imagine having children without narcotics.

Air conditioning: I grew up without it, but my DH now has me hooked. All hail, AC.

I have to agree with modern medicine. Imagine living in the medieval times. Or even just the 18th century. Those leeches! Ekk.

Trollop, I too love Estee Lauder's cover foundation! Anyway, I'm quite materialistic. LOL Thank God I was born in the century of electricity and vibrators. :P

I think the most important for me are my laptop, ipod and phone.

Trollop, I hate it when my computer is not working properly. Especially when I don't know what to do to fix it! URGGH

OK, here's my list: laptop, TIVO, mobile phone, oven, toothbrush, hair conditioner, shampoo, soap, coffee maker. I need my coffee fix!!!

Cellphone, Internet - IMO, these are necessities anyone should never be without.

A good book.

My glasses and contact lenses.

Smooties - I love smooties! LOL

I can't do without my glasses! I can't read, watch, see anything without it.

Cell phone, but there are times I don't want to talk to anyone. LOL Lipgloss, pens, and my camera. And the Sunday crossword too!

Ladybug, yes for football please! Tom Brady. Yum. :P

My digicam - Because you'll never know when there's a moment you just have to permanently record.

Tivo - This is a brilliant invention.

Internet - I'd be bored to tears without it.

Car - Imagine people still using carriages and horses for travelling!

MSN Msgr. Trollop will go insane without me. :/

Plumming system. Oh god, i can't even imagine living without toilet and shower! Ack!

Toiletries. Shampoo, soap, conditioner, toothbrush, etc.

Internet. I go berserk everytime i have no connection. This is why i'll die without electricity.

Aircon. Where i live, very hot, people. I can't stand the heat; unless i'm exercising or performing some acrobatic bedroom dancing, i loathe sweating. AC is a MUST.

Microwave oven. Trust me, this one I NEED. Besides, unless a certain food SHOULD be eaten cold (like ice cream), i heat everything. Even cookies. :P

Chocolates. I don't eat it every day, but i always have a stash. Just the possibility of never having Nutella ever again is unthinkable.

Cell phone: Car breaks down, what do you want from the grocery store?, need to vent to friends ASAP!, NOT missing THAT call from HIM, the one with the crooked smile that you would DIE if you missed his call.

Chap stick: Soft lips for THAT guy, the one with the crooked smile and green eyes.

MP3 player or other music related stuffs. (FM radio, cds, walkmans): Music is my second religion. All music, everyday, all day. Great conversation starter with THAT guy, the one with the crooked smile, green eyes that fills out a pair of jeans just right.

DVD's: I LOVE being able to watch the newest flick, at home, as many times as I want, pause it for potty breaks, get more snacks, watch it in bed in your ugly but comfy jammies with your hair in a messy ponytail. Plus, the quality beats out VCR tapes, you don't have to rewind them and they take up little space. (You can watch porn with THAT guy, the one with the crooked smile, green eyes, body that fills out a pair of jeans just right and is ruggedly handsome)

Contact lenses: You want Mr. Green eyes-crooked smile-fills out a pair of jeans just right-ruggedly handsome-GREAT in bed to be able to see your beautiful eyes when you are using them to seduce him, don't you?

Internet: All the knowledge of the world at my fingertips. Plus, my Book Bitches, who post almost naked picks of THAT guy, how can you beat that?

I have to have my Ipod, which I bring with me everywhere. Great company too while exercising.

Internet. For emails, shopping, gambling, LOL and the wonderful Book Bitches.

Coffee. Count me in with those who can't live without it. I have to have my fix every morning or my mind and body won't function normally.

Choclate: With out lots of thim I'm a very nasty person to know

Mascara: As a red head, with out mascara I look like I've got no eyelashes at all and kind of alien ya know!.

SPELL CHECKER: I'm a dyslexic writer. With out it people might guess I have the spelling age of a ten year old *blush* Cut and paste has it's uses when bloggers don't have spell checks!)

Welcome, Arledjinn, Amanda. :)
You know guys, you don't have to like Trollop too. Just me is fine. LOL :P Hope you post often!

Lily Moon,
Not good with PS, i suck at these stuff (grrr) but love watching some games. Isn't the new PS3 gonna be out soon? My brother's been talking about it. LOL

I'm not dyslexic but I spell like a 10 yr old. :/ I don't think blogger has spell check.. They should add that when they upgrade. Once i tried that wheelchair dude, but it didn't work!

I cannot live in anything but a modern world. I usually kill if I cannot access email or internet. I am not satisfied with an apology from the ISP, I must have blood.
Mobile ph, car, make-up: my must have is mascara. I can exist without the rest, but not without that. Shower & all the bits/bobs that go with it. Modern toiletries.
Doctors/pills/potions that make all pain go away ... plus alcohol, chocolate (esp Nutella) and so on.
GWB: You made me ROFLMAO again!
