So, I can't get images to show here. I'm betting this has to do with the fact I'm using an ancient desktop computer. I miss my laptop! I hadn't realized how much I'd come to rely on that pretty red device until I had to ship it out for repair. Which brings me to my topic today. What items do you consider necessary in your life? Like, you'd never want to live without them? Remember, I said items, this doesn't include family and friends, that's a given. LOL
Here's a list of things I'd absolutely hate to lose:
My Laptop. Clearly that's the most important thing to me. As an author I use that sucker daily. It's like a mechanic without his tools. I'm going crazy without it! Ugh!
My Nook Color. I have officially switched from paperbacks to ebooks. I walked into a store the other day and saw a book I'd been waiting on, a new release. I passed it up and my daughter said, "I thought you liked that author. Aren't you going to buy her book?" I told her I'd rather have it on my Nook and she laughed. Mostly because I'm not a gadgety type of person and my daughters know it. Until recently, that is!
My Droid Global. I never ever carried a cell phone before now. I had one, but only for emergencies. The only time I used it was while the girls were in school, it was just a way for them to get in touch with me if they needed to. But the Droid my daughters and husband got me for Christmas is awesome! I love being able to post to Facebook, check email, play games and music, take pictures, browse the internet and even read ebooks. How'd I ever survive without it? Seriously?
My DVD Collection. Okay, I admit it, I love movies. It's my favorite thing to do, besides read and write. I love all types of movies, too. Sci-fi, suspense, thrillers, comedies, b&w classics, and kids movies. If the house was burning down and my family was out safe, I just might take a second to grab my Alfred Hitchcock Collection. LOL! Not really, but I'd cry over the loss, that's for damn sure!
So, what would you hate to lose? What things would you never want to live without? I can't be the only one addicted to their gadgets! :)
