So, what can you definitely do *without*?

  1. Lausana's post re: what can't you live without made me think of things that are necessary (at work for instance) but that you drop the first chance you get.

    I wear a watch at work, but once 3:30 hits, it's off 'til the next morning. When I left my last job, the pager and cell phone were turned in with no regrets. What a relief not to be a slave to electronics! The ringer on my home phone is often off, as well.

    How about you?

    My Name badge. I have not seen one employee in our hospital who looks good in their pics. Nor do they resemble the one in the pic--so tell me what good is having the pics in first place. (see i am obsessing cuz I misplaced mine and I might have to pay $5 for new ugly pic!!!!!!!

    I loose the watch as I'm walking in the door after work, then I head to the toilet as fast as my short dumpy legs can carry me and while I'm sitting there thinking that peeing is better than sex (cause I havent done either in such a while) I am taking off the shoes. The I grab an oversized t-shirt and some shorts and start my evening at home with the supper, the homework, the laundry and whatever else pops up.

    The pic on my drivers license. I look like Big Bertha who just broke out of lockdown at Alcatraz. Hey - I was there for 3 hours and was tired, what do you expect?

    Ok, I am the type that strips nekkid as soon as I get home to either lounge around that way or put on my at home uniform... pajama pants and an old raggedy t-shirt (no bra, no thong).

    So things I can live without include:

    Undergarments of any type
    Pictures of me (although I look rather cute in my driver's license pic but I have to renew this month... ack!)
    Uncomfortable shoes

    I also turn off the cell phone (actually I leave it plugged in the charger in my car, I seem to only use it when travelling), and I have been known to turn off the ringer of my home phone as well.

    I hate being so easily found.
