    Things I can't Live without

    Thought this would be a funny idea for a thread

    Post 3 things (3 per post - unlimited posts) that you can't live without. You can use this as an opportunity to introduce others to the things they don't know they can't live without yet. Or simply voice your addiction.

    My example:

    Orange juice in the morning

    Sunshine

    Weezer's blue album


    Y tu?

    Re: Things I can't Live without

    1. Coffee - most people know better than to talk to me before my first cup. Those that don't know this find out quickly.

    2. NPR (National Public Radio) - I remember finding it probably in about middle school flipping thru the radio dial in the middle of the night when I was supposed to be sleeping. I've been hooked ever since.

    3. Water - to make the coffee. Well besides that, there's just something that big water (as in the Great Lakes, around here) does to bring me back to reality. It's a lot of fun to play in with boats, but also great just to sit and watch. Just wish it wasn't an hour and a half drive, minimum - but I really value the time I get.

    4. Being a rebel.

    When boiled down to life's neccessities:

    1) GOOD Coffee

    2) Bugs Bunny cartoons

    3) Pasta... :Yawn:

    Yes, only 3. But you can post as often as you want

    These are great guys. I've got to listen to an OAR album one of these days.

    Here is number 4: a 10 ml vial of Novolin insulin and some syringes to counteract the chocolate.

    Re: Things I can't Live without

    Hey Rick...the best OAR album that I have found that has most of their better hits is 34th and 8th. Its a double album recorded live at their annual thanksgiving show in NYC. Well worth the money and its quite cheap right now. Another 3 things...

    1)Guinness
    2)My girlfriend/future wife
    3)This forum

    Re: Things I can't Live without

    I am hesitant to hear a band's music first on a live album. But I'll keep my eyes open for it, thanks Z.

    Oh, and you all BETTER have this forum in your top 10!

    1) Women
    2) Controversy
    3) A camera
