Ten on Tuesday

Ten Things I Wouldn't Want to Live Without
  1. Pretty much by definition, but let's get it out of the way: anything I couldn't live without. Food, shelter, clothing, sleep. I've always had more than enough, and I try never to take these things for granted. I'm going to lump basic technology in here: modern plumbing, electric lights, household appliances, central heat.
  2. Yarn. Well, really, how could I leave it out, even if everyone knows it already?
  3. Fiber. It's where yarn comes from.
  4. Sheep and other fiber animals. Well, I don't need to live with them, exactly, but I'd hate to live in a world without them.
  5. Work. It's odd, since I often don't want to go there when I have to, but I do enjoy it.
  6. Cell phones. I survived 35 years without one, but they sure are handy.
  7. Music. I am extremely unmusical: I can't sing, I have no clue what's going on in classical music — Grant has been known to ask me if I can't hear what the voices in a fugue are doing, to which the answer is a resounding no — but a world without music would be too grim to contemplate.
  8. Books. And, for me, that will always mean books I can hold in my hand and carry around with me: I haven't yet ventured into ebooks, but even if I do I'll still want paper ones.
  9. Movies. Like books, the ones I love are old friends. Here I've embraced the new technology: with a DVD player I can visit my favorites whenever I like.
  10. Blogs. Of course.

  • I'm afraid I'd have to add my husband to my list. He is the one who makes my heart hop up and down. Other than that, you have it covered completely. Yes, paper books. Yes, old movies, tv shows. Yes, music in most of its variations and forms. I think I could live without punk, thrash, heavy metal and death metal, but just about everything else is tolerable.


    Tea?
