That Might Hurt A Little

I love those survey thingies that have that question of what would be the one thing you would have to have with you if you were alone and stranded on a deserted island. I always answer "my lip stuff". Not matches, food, water, a bow and arrow, a pillow, a man (what am I thinking?! Do I know me at all?!), but my lip stuff. I'm pretty sure if my lips went 30 seconds without being hydrated I would die on the spot.

So it got me to thinking (cuz I am sooooo deep) of what my things were I just could not live without. Well, after much pondering, I realized I *probably* would not actually die on the spot if I didn't have my lip stuff. Though my lips would dry up, crack and be prone to infection, so really...I could die without it, but it wouldn't be on the spot, it would probably take a while. Okay, so seriously...I could live without it. But it would hurt a little. So I thought I'd instead think of things that I could live without, but it would hurt a little. Here goes--

This would be my lip stuff. Muy importante in my little world. Oooh, and it freshens breath! Bonus!

Ahhhhh, my books! I love them. They entertain me. Feed me. Take me away. Notice the two Bibles in the bunch? Yeah, I could be a Bible Thumper. I refer to my Bible often. It's full of stuff that helps me. It might hurt a little if I didn't have it. Little bit.
Oh, my Little Green. Thank goodness for this. I have gotten my money's worth out of this little baby. Can you say...doggie w/a very small, infection prone bladder?
I loves me my flip flops. I'd prefer to go barefoot (got a little Cherokee in me), but you know there are quite a few places that don't let you in without shoes. The whole no shoes, no service bit. So to me, this is the next best thing. I totally need to live somewhere tropical. And my Tevas are like walking on a little piece of Heaven.
Where would I be w/out my cookbooks? At Wendy's, that's where. See I love to cook, but I'm no Rachael Ray (though I do have her cookbook) and I just have to follow a recipe. I'm a follower not a leader. Just tell me what to do.

Coffee. The most important meal of the day.

The news. Specifically Fox News. I have to know what's going on.

Home decor magazines...well, they just make me giddy!

I love to say things. My computer is very near and dear to my heart. My friends live in there. And by typing, I can actually keep up with my brain. And my computer is a good listener. Love that.

And these guys...including the man holding them...It would actually hurt to live without these guys! They are good for me!

At least the bibles weren't on the bottom of the stack, and I did notice that the kids came last, and your lip gloss first. hmmmmm

Hey! I have that same lip stuff! I should use it more.

And as for the flip flops, you need to live in Florida. I see people barefoot all over the place. You'd love it.

Very cool bloggie.

I think I'd take my GP photo collection. :D ...and my girlies, of course. And some chocolate. :D
