I've been tagged by the ever fabulous Miss Carlene Federer
-- otherwise known as blogger of all things Unruly -- to
share five things I am addicted to. Je suis adonné à…
1) Coffee -- It's the most obvious of my must haves, and the
one thing to which I am chemically dependent.
I've got to have it every morning. I love the smell, warmth, taste,
and ritual. Must have coffee. No sugar, plenty of skim milk, please.
Without it, I have a headache that no pain reliever can fix, and I
crave a nap from 11am until bedtime. Hand in hand with my coffee
addiction, goes my love of coffee mugs. My favorites are heavy,
large and have some kind of sentimental value or representation.
2) My laptop and the world wide web. :)
Blogs, news, email, Google, recipes, photography stuff, ASU's
blackboard, green living ideas, Netflix. Inspiration & information
of all kinds. It's how I start and end my day. (Not to mention all
the times I log on in between.) When I'm not online, I can still
entertain myself for hours, downloading and editing photos or
writing. Having a laptop with wireless Internet is this girl's
heaven. And I don't think I'm alone. A recent survey showed
46% of women say they would rather go without sex for two
weeks than go that long without Internet access. Only 30%
of men would make the same trade-off. (Harris Interactive)
3) The Week is the best magazine EVER.
I can't live without it. It is delivered to my mailbox 50 weeks
out of the year, and I am always so happy to see it! I read it
every single night when I crawl into bed. The articles in The
Week are short. Making them perfect for night time reading,
and because each issue only has a half a dozen ads, I don't have
to spend time flipping to find something worth reading. This
magazine totally rocks and never disappoints. It covers every-
thing that's happened during the previous week -- national,
international, and even some entertainment. When I finish
the current one, it's time to check the mail.
4) Method cleaning supplies
I'm sure if I did this post ten years ago, cleaning supplies would
not have made the list. Alas, I love everything about this stuff!
Most notably that it's all non-toxic and it smells fantastic.
I am totally hooked on the all surface spray in cucumber scent,
along with the good for wood dusting spray. It's amazing and
totally kicks Pledge's ass. There's just no comparison. And the
best in glass cleaner is a new favorite. They're all smooth, and
they doesn't smell of chemicals or leave streaks. Target carries
it -- in case you're interested. :)
5) Candy -- Like a little kid with the stuff. I love it. I wish I
didn't, but I do. Cherry sours, lemon drops, hot tamales, junior
mints, peppermint patties, licorice, grapefruit slices, really
good chocolate, and anything hazelnut. I'm a sucker for sugar,
and I don't go many days without a little something sweet.
Now that I've bared my addiction addled soul, it's time to tag
five others to do this. Ladies, you're it! Hopefully you'll do this
and tag five more people -- or not. :)
