Will these things all fit in the purselet? If so, that'd be awesome.

The Onion at A lot of Layers presented me with this gem! A list of things that she cannot live without! I love it and it made me laugh. I hope you all enjoy and don’t forget to check her out when you’re done!

1. Chapstick – every day, several times a day. No fancy-shmancy stuff. We are talking the WAXY tube of CHAPSTICK. It goes on like rubber cement. My Dad called it “lip-ice”, which makes me smile. I miss him fondly when I shmear mine on.
2. Onions – Stop bitching. You need them. You MUST HAVE them, or your food will be ruined. Take a Tums.

3. Caffeine – This post brought to you by Starbucks.

4. Fingernail Clippers – Go ahead and think this is stupid. But have a snaggy nail for a day or two, try to “file” it off on your jeans and then you will be on board.

5. Tampons – girls you know of what I speak. These changed the world for women in bathing suit season everywhere.

6. DVR – I could get rid of all extra channels so long as I could tape the few measly ones I had to watch at my leisure. And fast forward through commercials.

7. The purselet – It’s my purse’s baby. It fits on your shoulder and carries credit cards, cash, a lipstick and a gun (just kidding). The purselet - because sometimes a purse is just too much to lug around.

8. High thread count sheets – they are THAT good. Like buttah. You’ll inevitably forget to throw them in the dryer and you’ll stand there and WAIT for them to dry instead of putting on the others. Yes, you will. Soofffttt.

9. The Daily Newspaper – It’s a rag. It’s local hokey, not a USA today. It’s too thin and not always fair and balanced..or accurate. It also has spelling errors. Yet I will walk through FIRE to get to it each and every evening. Don’t touch it before I have read it, or mess up the pages or I will chop your arm off.

10. The Crackberry – Even with my blackberry injury, I am still overusing it. I can’t stop. I need a 12-step program. I’m looking one up right now…on my blackberry.

6 & 9 I could live without - but you are spot on with the others. A DVR is nice, we just got one a few months ago, but it hassles me.

And I didn't own a cellphone for years and used to get yelled at by the kids' schools for not having one [yes, yelled at] - so I finally got one. It isn't fancy - and I don't really need it - so, yeah. I don't even know what a Blackberry does. :)

Yay Onion!!!
I'll be honest, I too love the high thread count sheets. I'm never going back, I tell you. NEVER!!!

Oilfield Trash said...

I agree with you on the daily paper.

#1- I can also do lip gloss and/or tubes of petroleum jelly

#6- It's crazy. I can't even watch a commercial without getting antsy now. If I'm watching a live show (which I rarely do), I have to get up and do something to occupy my mind until the show comes back.

#8- I have one set and I just keep washing them and reusing them. Don't judge me.

#10- I bet I'm the only mom with "Fucking Perfect" (uncut) on her Blackberry.

Nice post!

I love pre recorded shows for the same reason... I can miss out all the adverts.

I also want a purselet sounds great.

GotThatSwing said...

I belive that it's possible to fit anything in a bag;)

I deffinitaly agree with tampons:P

The Tame One said...

Coffee, yes!
Garlic, not onion so much.
Lipstick or gloss for sure.
iPod and Cell b/c I can't afford an iPhone which completely blows!
Nail clippers and tampons for sure. Oddly enough, I always have clippers and always have to ask someone else for a tampon.

Love this post!

steph c said...

Um, yes to all of this. Although I have to agree with The Tame One.. GARLIC ftw. It makes literally everything better.

I would also include Q-tips. I don't care what you say, I can't live without 'em!

I remember once driving a small son to school when he got a blood nose. Only thing I had in my bag was a sanitary napkin.
Child was very lucky it wasn't a tampon

Bouncin' Barb said...

Is there a 12 step program for Crackheads ? Hahaha that was so funny. I purposely don't have internet access on my phone. Just calls and text if necessary and it really does let you stay in tuned with your surroundings. Cute post.

loved this and totally agree about the onions

Ms Jenna said...

Boyfriend used to mock my Chapstick addiction. Like you, I use only classic black and I keep one everywhere I might need one- coat pockets, desk drawer, purse, bedside table, make-up drawer, every purse I own, and of course the car. He has come to count on me always having a Chapstick available though so he no longer makes fun.

*I also love high-thread count sheets. My bed is my oasis.

LottieSpartacus said...

I have been told that my handbag is like Mary Poppins' because I can invariably find what someone needs in there. And it's only a small oroton bag. I am just good at packing!

I love my lip balm...but it is a tube of pawpaw ointment which can be used for lips, sunburn, mozzie bites, blisters etc etc etc. LOVE IT.

And...I am allergic to onion, so have to live without it. Use herbs and spices and you don't notice the difference!

The Onion said...

By the way, the purselet comes in a Bagaglini bag, as the little clip in wallet. Mine just flies solo.

I am a failure for JUST now making it over here. I suck. I had to finish my taxes TODAY before I head to Texas for the big trip and come back to find the tax man ready to cuff me.

Thanks for letting me hang out today Jumble. Want to take a turn on the Layers? Just say Yo.

Nicki said...

I just want to cuddle up to my DVR and whisper sweet nothings in its magical recording ears.

Sandra said...

Clearly if you can stick all those posessions into the purselet, you would know how a Blackberry functions. I'm afraid I wouldn't know where the on button is.

Love purselets!

And ewww tampons, they don't work for me unfortunately.
