rerun(like TV)
13 Electronics that I could live without, but why would I?

People are what I care about most and make me happy, but would those people make me as happy if i had to live without these electronics......? You tell me?
I thought I would start and end w/ the most crucial ones this is my favorite!!!! My Digital Camera is an extension of me I find so much joy snapping away I have been observed as loving doing this and I confess I could go back to my SLR but WHy?? there is no do-over, no instant gratification.

There are days I want to live w/o this but now I do not even have home long Distance and my kids who do not live at home don't even have land lines.

My battery toothbrush I could go back to a non moving regular brush but my tongue would not be as happy cause my teeth are so smooth w/ this.

Even this I sooo remember the days of being tethered by that curly cord when it jerked me back when running after a child that needed me..

What can I say I kinda like my identity

Now you all probably have had stereos all your life but being the 7th of 10 kids this is the first one I have ever had. We got it about 8 years ago I listen to the radio in the AM, CD'S esp on Sundays and many, many books on tape.

Now this one... I could go back to making it in the pan but then there is all that oil and flavor hmmmm??

Oh this is one of my Familes Favorites this makes fast yummy smoothies, sauces etc..They seemto be ready and waiting for us when we wake up

and this one chopps: eggs, nuts, carrots, chicken, dry Ramen for chinese Chicken Salad, onions and saves my hands and eyes I won't go back to living w/o it you can't make me.

This little thing does not save me time (just he opposite) It did not save me money. but what it does save me from is..... straight hair envy... I can go straight whenever I have the couple of hours to do it... I wish I had this in HS it would have saved all those scarey clothes iron hours, bending over the ironing board, trying not to burn me or my hair as I straightened my almost waist legth wavy hair.I could go back to that but I bet I would jst go back to straight hair envy w/o my Chi.

And this curling iron is fat... This a fat I can fully makes nice sized curls not just the small ones like we used to have to do. Curly hair needs not return to the little one.

I could not make great rolls till I got this Champ. good rolls, but not great so this is my Champ!!! It took me a while to get use to this for every day use but when my hand mixer broke there was no turning back.

and last of all would you give up your comp? Enough said!

I could give up curling irons and blenders (because I never use them!) but my comp? never!

Kristi said...

I have always wanted a battery powered toothbrush. Happy TT!

Haha great list! I'm with you on so many of those! I couldn't live without my Computer, cell phone or, for me, iPod! I also am in love with my hair dryer and straightening iron...although I could probably just wear my hair curly every day, but why would I? ;)

Happy TT!

Not enough hair for the curling iron and not enough cooking imagination for the blender...So I've saved a bit of electricity! Great stuff, Marcia!

I am SO with you on the digital SLR. That delete button makes photography fearless.

I think the other electronic thing I couldn't live without is .. hmmm. I'm not sure. Probably my garage door opener. Does that count, or is it not tech enough?

SJ Reidhead said...

I have the computer, blender, phone, Ipod - no curling iron (I'm too clutzy). My condo kitchen is so small, I've limited small appliances to the necessities.

The one appliance I do without - a microwave.

Well then, great list. Is that flat iron a good one? I have a heck of a time finding one to work on my frizzy hair. There are a few things on your list I couldnt life without either:) Happy TT.

This was such a great entry on so many levels. I often joke that they'll have to pry [fill in technology/gadget here] from my cold, dead hands. I seriously wonder what life was like before so many of the technologies that we now take for granted.

My binky is my BlackBerry. Now that I work from home, it's a force multiplier whenever I need to leave the house: My work doesn't stop just because I'm not at my desk.

My wireless laptop, life revolves around it now. I forget what life was like when I was tethered, dialing up or, shudder, not connected at all!

Carol said...

Are we stinkin' spoiled or what? Where on earth did all these gizmos come from that I have saved all the undecipherable owners manuals for?

It's a little crazy, isn't it?

I could give up some of the kitchen gadgets, but never my computer! My T13 is up.

My camera and my computer - I can´t live without them! The rest I guess I could live without :D

Angie said...

I think I would be lost without my computer at this point.
Great list! :)

Mec said...

I'll have to add my kitchen aid and PDA too.

Darla said...

For me, it's pretty much just the computer. Particularly for this two weeks when we're living without everything else--it's all packed up and on its way to our new house.

I could definitely do without the phone. :)

Denise Patrick said...

I couldn't live without my computer. I could survive without the cell phone - for a while, but coming this fall it will be a necessity as the kid is leaving for college in another state. Great list!

Happy TT!

Except the curling iron, marcia, I want to keep everything else! And if you're wondering why I didn't list stamps for Texas, Ohio, New York - I couldn't only list 13! LOL! :)

Interesting 13. Mine is Eat, Drink and be Merry - 13 Last Words, Excerpt: Judaism instructs us to enjoy the simple gifts that God gives in the present world. Eat, drink and be merry. Enjoy this life, on this Earth, in this time. I have collected for your enjoyment the last words of some of our more famous fellow human beings involving food or drink before they died.

I had to come back and laugh about you catching the fact that Flagstaff made both my lists of where I don't want to return to and where I do. I suppose it's true - and I do go through it a lot when I'm headed for southern Arizona. But, I've stopped and stayed there overnight, too. I do like walking around the NAU campus and seeing what's new from when I was there *cough* years ago.

Julie said...

This was so fun to zoom through too! I really like your blog! I can't imagine the time it took to put this list together!

We love our hair appliances don't we?
