The six things I could never do without

Okcupid asks for "The six things I could never do without." Here's my first draft at this list:
Observations, words, people, paper, grace, sleep

What's yours?

Oh Shannon. Good ones! I'd drop paper in a heartbeat for internet.

Hi! Great question. Right away these come to mind:

- music
- people who are positive thinkers
- creativity
- laughter
- curiosity
- communication

Positive thinkers! yay!
After making my list I thought about how creativity should be on there. Curiosity is good too. (huh, there is no letter "u" in curiosity. I think I've been typoing that my whole life). Communication is a good one too. I put people on my list only cuz what's it any good to have these other things with no people around. But then you could have people around, but communication is really the key to having people around. I think I would swap out "people" and put "communication" on my list. Cuz communication implies that you'd have people on the list.

I find it hard to believe I saw this on your facebook before I saw it here on your blog! I'm still mulling my list over, so, as with yours, here's a first draft

music
people
water
internet
humor
sunglasses

"(huh, there is no letter "u" in curiosity. I think I've been typoing that my whole life)"

sure there is. right there! curiosity

Oh I meant a second u. Like, curiousity. Oh that does look weird. Maybe I have been spelling it correctly.

Tom, water. Good one! Interesting how the foodie doesn't have any food on his list!

Unless he's going all cannibal-like. Then he's got it right after music. :P

"Cuz communication implies that you'd have people on the list." ... good point, so does that mean I get one more? Yes? OK:

- freedom of choice!

(since someone already mentioned sunglasses ... that's such a good one ... I do love my sunglasses ...) B-)

Posted by: vera on Sep 18, 09 | 12:52 pm


That's Tom who mentioned sunglasses. The funny thing is that I've never seen Tom wearing sunglasses. Tom, I gotta see your sunglasses tonight. I bet they are very sharp. I'm gonna put on some shades toooooo. B-) awww yeah.

Freedom of choice! Interesting. Not just freedom. But specifically of choice. What if you have too many options? Oh I get confused then. Vera, you can use your freedom of choice powers to pick for me then. d

I don't know what that "d" is at the end of my comment. Maybe I sat on my sunglasses and now they are broken.

Posted by: spudart on Sep 18, 09 | 1:20 pm


oh yeah. my list. this is tricky:

1) music
2) communication
3) books
4) internet
5) plants (i like to take care of them. they're nice! it's relaxing)

Posted by: sparx on Sep 18, 09 | 1:51 pm


oh, and none of that "Cuz communication implies that you'd have people on the list." stuff.

if they aren't any people.. well, i'm sure you saw the movie Castaway. I'd eventually lose it and start talking to rocks. Or the plants.
