Feedback Saturday (#40)

Well, this time around instead of the usual Feedback Session Galore, we're gonna kill two birds with one stone (don't worry, no actual birds were harmed in the production of this blog post) and combine Feedback Friday (Saturday) and my answers to McBlogger's recent tag.

It's such an elegant plan that I continue to marvel at the shear simplicity . . .

Here goes -

5 Things always in my purse (I have not fully succumbed to my inner metro-sexual yet and am thus still proud to declare that I do not carry a man-purse . . . so this will just have to be 5 things that are always in my moneyclip)

1 - Colorado State Drivers License (worst picture in the history of pictures)
2 - REI Membership Card
3 - Two Credit/Debit Cards
4 - Starbucks Card
5 - One . . . sometimes two dollar bills (It makes a money clip look right. Gotta have at least a buck)

5 Things always in my wallet (Hello!?! . . . this is why women are from Venus or wherever and men only need one "holder" with a couple of cards)

Next . . .

5 Things always in my refrigerator

1 - C2 (I know, I know . . . another one bites the dust. I've been drinking "half-coke" for awhile now and actually like it. I still have the real thing sometimes, but there ain't none in the fridge no-more)
2 - Cheddar Cheese (I eat enough cheese to technically be classified as 1/100th rodent. I'm sure that isn't much of a surprise to most people who already know I'm a weasel)
3 - Water (Colorado is dry, dry, dry, dry and . . . dry. Gotta drink up, people)
4 - Milk (I don't actually drink a whole lot of milk, but I steam it for Cafe Mochas all the time. Good stuff)
5 - Beer (Early and often)

5 Things always in my closet

1 - My Wife's shirts
2 - My Wife's pants
3 - My Wife's Hats
4 - My Wife's Shoes
5 - My clothes crammed in the space that is left over (Dang, I love her!)

5 Things always in my car

1 - Entertainment Coupon Book
2 - This cool Mexican blanket that we always like to have in there in case we decide to go on a picnic
3 - CDs, Tapes (yep, still got a tape player) and an iPod cassette tape adapter
4 - Fold-up Window Visor (it's been pretty freakin' hot here this Summer)
5 - Jumper Cables (practicality can be sexy . . . yes?)

5 Things always on my desk

1 - Computer
2 - Two Baskets (One for pens and crap and the other for papers and crap)
3 - Coaster for drinks (Don't wanna get the desk all messed up with water rings)
4 - Stack of Papers
5 - A noticeable quarter-inch thick layer of dust (Wow, that's actually pretty scary)

5 people I'm tagging

Here's where we're gonna zig instead of zagging . . .

For the "Feedback" portion of Feedback Saturday, go ahead and leave a comment detailing your answers to the above questions.

Don't worry, it's relatively painless and besides, we destroy all of our surplus records every 13 years. You'll still be able to run for President without this coming back to bite you in the bootie.

I promise.

Lol... for a minute I thought Glenn said a 'Bee Gees' clock!

Purse: Teeny umbrella, Klonopin, lip gloss, Excedrin, a bunch of crap that fell to the bottom.

Wallet: (This makes me think of the Capital One commercials) Ohio DL, Ins cards, credit/debit cards, a big paper clip (?), and occasionally some money.

Fridge: Water, water, some veggies, mexican stuff, and water.

Closet: Plethora of hospital scrubs, blankets, boxes, other crap I didn't know what else to do with, and a tiara.

Car: Hello Kitty sun shields I never use, alot of dust, change, a sun faded magazine that isn't even mine (how DID it get there?), frappuccino stains.

Desk: Again with the dust, about 25 writing implements (including a wiggly purple lizard pen), a Happy Bunny sticker ('Despising you makes me all warm inside'), about 5 tubes of lipstick/gloss, and a scientific calculator to figure out the frickin' bills!

Cheese...mmmm delicious, lovely cheese. My absolute favourite. I melt it directly on a plate. I figure the bread is just a conduit in which to transport the cheese, so why bother. Just skip the bread and eat the best part. mmmm cheese...more cheese....love cheese.
