Friday Fab Five

Today... Five Things You Never Want To Live Without... and don't tell me your husband and kids.  I mean like secret things....interesting things...shocking things..... 

Okay, so these aren't any of the "things" just described, but, they are mine.

1. Viva Paper Towels.  

2. HGTV (House Hunters in particular)

3. Barry Manilow

4.  "Tighten Up"  (aka: Liquid Virgin...)

1. Internet. Specifically email and blogging. I'm addicted to it like crack.

2. 2 cups of coffee and two *shhhhh* cigarettes every morning before I must leave for work.

3. CD player and a burner on the computer. I'm a music FREAK, but can't afford an iPod.

4. Cell phone. I talk to at least 20 people while I traveled today. It's wonderful being about to get in that touch so that once I'm in the office, with kids, hubby, etc, I have time to think about being with them and not who I need to call.

5. More blogger buddies. I know they're out there and I'm meeting new ones every. single. day.

2. la mer
3. sunglasses
4. red wine (I'm sounding a bit like Ms. Hatfield... if Ms. Hatfield had lots of tattoos, maybe)
5. internet service (I wonder how long before there is a support group for this addiction)
Heather said…
When I was little, my mom helped me mail a letter to Barry asking for his hand in marriage. Such innocence in not knowing that I could never have Barry.

1. Coffee. I drink it all day. It's a problem.
2. My iMac. Seriously LOVE anything Apple.
3. Hair products. I use, like, four every day.
4. T.V. It's on all day poisoning my children's minds.

2. Nympho Niagra(you went there with the Tighten Up, so...)

3. Peanut M&Ms

4. a book, a beach, a bottle of Landshark. Every year, please.

5. Nars "Orgasam" lipgloss.

And now you have my packing list for the beach.
p.s. The things that bind us together are precious to me...vampires, Manilow, Barrymore and our beloved VIVA. We are such BFFs.
p.p.s. Can I add your phone sex operator voice to this list? Yes, I just outed you. In a good way!
Kori said…
First off let me just say that I am laughing so hard with tears in my eyes just for the simple fact that you listed Tighten Up cream. God Bless you for this! Ok so now for my Top 5.

1. Flat Iron

2.Cell Phone Simply because it's also my MP3 player and I love my Music.

3. GUM! I quit smoking shortly after Richard was diagnosed last year. So Gum is a must have.

4. My square fuzzy pillow. It goes everywhere with me because I can't stand for my knees to touch when I'm sleeping or layng on my side. Yes I am an undiagnosed OCD person.

5. Charmin Toilet Paper the Blue one not the red. When Richard is in the hospital or we are gone on vacation I ahve to take my own TP cause my girlie parts don't agree with nothing else. TMI I know!
Jill said…
1. The internet. I couldn't get through the work day without it.

4. my CHI flat iron

5. Coffee. Mostly starbucks

Gotta be honest with ya - the Barry Manilow confession is definitely "interesting", "shocking" and yes, something you should probably keep a "secret"! But who am I to judge...

1 - internet (big shocker there)
2 - Victoria's Secret bras (thre babies later, they keep the twins from draggin' on the floor)
3 - Rick Steeves and his delightful travels through Europe (fessin' up to a little crush here)
4 - Target (is it wrong to get turned on by an aisle full of cool notebooks and darling thank you cards?)
5 - brownie batter (If I could I would mainline that stuff)

i read a blog comment on hokey pokey's blog and was wondering if you really run a summer are busy!!!
swilek said…
i put you on my bloglines and couldn't figure out why there wasn't any new ones showing but i figured it out...i had you at the wrong address!!!
I think somewhere in here I should say God, husband and children. But you should know that already so I'm just skipping the obvious and going straight to:
1. Starbucks Iced Chai Latte - I've even learned to make my own and buy the concentrate by the case, no lie
2. Fake nails - vanity, thy name is woman
3. light - ok this needs explanation - my husband is VERY conservative. he turns off lights. I turn on lights. I buy Sunpipes. He can't turn them off. I am happy.
4. sewing machines - multiple because one sews straight, one embroiders, one serges, one is very old and cherished, yada, yada
5. Fast internet connection :)

What in the world is "Tighten UP" and liquid virgin, and Nympho Niagra?
I can't even think of things I can't live without because my mind is racing trying to figure this out...
Missy said…
These lists tell so much about people! (also learn about great T Up)
1. Starbucks coffee
2. My ONE pair of jeans that fit perfectly.
3. Eyelash curler (even more important than mascara)
4. Grass (the kind in your yard, non-smokeable)
5. Digital camera
Anonymous said…
1. My Ipod and Nike+
2. Coffee - can't live without it!

-Bridget said…
1. spanx
2. coach purses and shoes
3. diet coke
4. hair dryer
5. magic cream (Yes, it is for black men to have nice shiny bald heads. That's not where I use it. Go south of the border.)

Now, if I was on a deserted island and could only take five things, would I have the same list? Ummmm...probably. Gonna need a really long extension cord for the hair dryer though.
Debbie said…
Diet Coke with lemon
the internet
flip flops
my Nordstrom jeans that fit oh so perfectly and are oh so comfy

What the heck is that stuff you mentioned that is scaring me so much I won't type it?
And, my husband is hoping I will say Tighten Up.
Anonymous said…
1. Shoes (many many pairs!)
2. Sunglasses (seriously photophobic)
3. Purses (yes, multiple)
4. Jackets (am always cold, and they make the outfit)
5. My favorite watch. Without it I'm forever running late!
Giiiiiiiiiiiiirl! Spill it! What in Heaven's name is Tighten Up and where do I get it?
~Sheila~ said…
1. Milkshakes. I don't care what flavor

2. My DVR (tivo). I have to be able to record shows I can't watch at the original air time.

3. A nice comfortable bed with super comfy pillows and blankets. I loves me some naps.

4. Cereal. Although I'm lactose intolerant..whatever, everyone just has to suffer cause I'm gonna chomp some cereal.

5. Some solitude. I cherish the times when Angel takes the kids fishing or just to the beach with him. I get to stay at home and just lounge for a bit.

KatBouska said…

a bajillion blogger friends.

ps you're totally hot!! Together we're headed straight for super stardom.
KatBouska said…
Oooh that was only four.

Swirl Girl said…
I could live without tons of things except:

coffee, my Bare Minerals makeup, my acrylic nails, cheese of all types but the creamier the better, my meds (no, I really couldn't live without them), Tv and DVR (i am addicted) grass ( and no, I mean the ingestible kind, not the lawn kind) good wine, long showers....I could go on forever...
KatBouska said…
ps Have you seen your shout out here:

EmBee said…
A fellow 'House Hunters' addict... Makes me love you even more! My favorite part is at the very end of the show when you see what changes they've made to their new digs (ie. paint, what their furniture looks like in the new space.) I just can't wait 'til the end!

Barry Manilow? Okay, I'll leave that one alone.

Liquid Virgin? I don't know what this is and frankly, I'm really afraid to ask.

I know I'm skipping around, but Viva Paper Towels would imply housework and I'm not sure I can relate any favorite item with housework... I mean, that's like saying my favorite part of being tortured is the alignment I get in my back when I'm put on the rack.

Comments!!! Woo-Hoo! It's quite obvious I love leaving them almost as much I do receiving them! With SITS though, I must admit it's getting very difficult to keep up but whatta ride!

I'll have to take some time to think about my 5 favorite things and get back to you on that... I DO think 'House Hunters' will be on the list but don't look for paper towels.
John Deere Mom said…
Just 5?! There are so many. Okay.

1. Catwalk Enviroshape hairspray and flat iron (that might sound like 2 but you can't have one without the other)
2. Coffee and alcohol (hey, sometimes they go together!)
3. Fountain Diet Dr. Pepper
4. Pens, planner, markers (all office supplies really)
5. Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
What a fun blog! I just found you over at Angela's Painted House. You've been keeping me very entertained this morning. If I had to come up with my Fab Five, it would have to include:

1) My computer--gotta blog!

2) My DVR--I can't seem to watch TV "live" any more now that I've gotten used to fast-forwarding through commercials and the middle-parts of my HGTV shows (I just want to see how it turns out--not how they did it!)

3) M&Ms hidden in my study where the kids can't find them. Chocolate keeps me going while I'm working.

4) The MLS listings--I'm obsessed with looking up houses and seeing how everyone else lives. I'm on the MLS listings almost every day, even though I have no plans to move any time soon.

5) Hair color. Am I the only one who worries that they may end up in the hospital in a coma someday and no one will think to touch up her roots? I am? Okay, forget I said anything.

-Julia :-)
Sunshine said…
So um...I'm so intrigued by the Liquid Virgin. I *do not* get out enough! I'm a little scared too.

And I totally copied you and did this on my blog.

1. Mexi Snax Pico de Gallo chips. Lord help me.

2. Lysol Antibacterial Spray

3. Bath and Body Works Wall Flowers

4. My glorious bed.

5. Fiction. I needs my books.

Jennifer P. said…
Hmmmm...Mrs. R since everyone was asking and you weren't talking--I took the liberty of googling Liquid Virgin and Tighten Up and reading several, uh, interesting reviews on the stuff. Seems like the FDA is still waiting to put their stamp of approval on this stuff. Something about the Alium levels. Somebody did say it was great at taking out under-eye wrinkles though.

Learn something new every day, right?!?! :)
Tiffany said…
Ladies, Liquid Virgin says it all. That's what it does. Literally. I don't use it often, but when I do... hello!

Jennifer- I knew that stuff was too good to be true.
FDA.. what do they know anyway?
Sheri said…
1. internet/email/blogging
2. Music. I have a kick @ss sound system even in my bathroom
3. Friends. They constantly reassure me I'm really NOT crazy
4. My dog. She's going to live to be 100. She has to.
5. Thunderstorms. So rare anymore, and I LOVE them!
leezee52 said…
Liquid Virgin...WTF?...tee hee.
Petula said…
:-)... those are good. I think mine are: water, internet, quiet time, medicine and... hmmm??.... ah, cell phone!

Shallow, huh? LOL
Cookie said…
OMG! I'm soooo going to have to check out this liquid virgin stuff!

as for me, is chocolate already assumed as something you can't live without like the husband and kids?
Cristin said…
1. Wine. Pinot Blanc if I can find it.

2. Coffee.

3. Swearing... it's just who I am.

4. Hating my dog... cause I'm not supposed to hate the kids right?
