Ten on Tuesday… Or: Blog meme, yay?

… it’s still Tuesday! For a little bit!

This was definitely stolen from Chelsea at Roots and Rings, who got the questions from Sarah at Life at a Different Pace.

Whew. Too many links. Moving on… to the, um, good stuff?

So I’m just supposed to tell which product/brand I use for each of these categories, and why.

1. Cell Phone

I have the Motorola Droid, and yes that means I go through Verizon. I’d love to tell you that we’re with Verizon because I love them or their service is great or their prices are too low to pass up or something, but I can’t. We switched from AT&T to Verizon after I got my new job, because there is no AT&T coverage in my new town. (But try telling THEM that? They didn’t believe me. Some bullshit about not being able to guarantee coverage in buildings. Whatthefuckever, dude.) We probably *should* have made the move to Inland Cellular, which is not a big fatty national brand, but it gets awesome coverage in the area. But. They didn’t have the Motorola Droid and, well, those damn TV commercials worked on me. But I love my phone, so that’s that.

2. Email

Gmail. And yeah, it really is as good as you hear. (Also, I’m a Google whore.)

3. Toothpaste

Colgate? I’m not sure, nor am I picky. I’m pretty sure I just buy Colgate at this point because Colgate is what we had before we ran out… you know?

4. Car

I’ve got a 2001 VW Jetta, which I got in 200…5? 2006? Somewhere right around there. I like my car, and I’d probably LOOOOVE it if I took better care of it.

5. Writing Utensil

Pilot G2. Any color. Currently in my purse is a pink and a purple, with numerous black and blue ones running around the house. Love.

6. Lotion

Lately my skin has been so dry I’ve been using Vaseline Intensive Care with aloe something-or-other. Other than that it’s Bath and Body Works, which I have coming out of my ears because I’ve had multiple family members who have worked there. Also: Victoria’s Secret. Yum.

7. Interior Paint

So, here’s a confession: I’ve never actually painting anything on my own before. I’ve helped other people, yes, but I’ve never gone to the store, picked out the paint, bought it and brought it home before. BUT. I want to. Soon. Like, my office. And maybe some other rooms if I can get over my indecisiveness. So you out there… tell me the good brands of interior paint!

8. Soda/Drink

There are three constants in my life: Mountain Dew, Coors Light and iced tea.

Those making special guest appearances include cream soda, cherry Coke/Pepsi and chocolate milk.

9. Laundry Detergent

Tide Coldwater High Efficiency. There’s really no alternative (okay, for real though there is, I just don’t want to talk about it) with our new Electrolux washer and dryer.

10. Medicine

Just about the only thing I swear by is Excedrin Migraine for my, well, migraines. I’ve had migraines for years and nothing else works as quickly for me.

Everything else I’ll buy whatever’s cheapest. The Boy does like his Advil, though.

    I'm a google whore too. I really don't know what I would do without Gmail, GReader, and Google Docs. Cry myself to sleep, probably.

    SERIOUSLY. Sometimes it makes me a little sad how dependent I've become on technology, specifically Google (um, hello, DROID)… but then I remember how much I love it and I get over it.

    only thing i can tell you about paint is PAINT A SWATCH FIRST, like a few square feet, and see how it really looks it that particular room in that particular lighting.

    i've helped quite a few people paint their interiors before, and skipping this step will result in your laundry room feeling like the inside of cinderella's pumpkin chariot …. or something

    🙂
