This morning during a brief lull at work, George whipped out the "Seattle @ Home" section of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer so we could peruse and discuss the merits of the "10 Things We Couldn't Live Without" column (brought to us by Robin Daly and Christian Ursino. Who are they? you might ask...Hell if I know!) So, we decided to make our own lists… these are supposed to reflect tastes for things at home, but of course we stray; and, along with straying, we exceed our limits...

12 Things I Can’t Live Without

1. Blood Pressure Medicine
2. Clinique’s Moisture Surge Extra Thirsty Skin Relief
3. Music
4. My Laptop and Internet Access
5. Books
6. My Down Comforter
7. Kitchenaide mixer – Tangerine
8. Color on the Walls
9. Original Art
10. Britta water filter
11. NPR
12. Bath oils, Bath salts, Bath bombs

And along with exceeding our limits we must, in contrast, voice what we do not care for...

10 Things I Could Live Without

1. Hummers, Escalades, Suburbans and all other excessively large and obnoxious SUVs
2. Leaf blowers
3. Vertical Blinds
4. Dried flower/basket décor
5. Fake Plants
6. Plastic Furniture Covers
7. Plug-in room fresheners and all other such stuff, esp. Fabreeze
8. Chairs that sit too low
9. Shiny plush carpet
10. Shadowboxes (I am so over them)
