Week 17: The Lists One

Lists from Daily Life Submitted by here_be_dragons. Feel free to pick and choose.

List all the things you hide when your friends come to visit.
I pile the books up more neatly on the living room floor :-)

List what's under your kitchen sink.
My bin, thanks to my carefully designed swiss kitchen!

List the brand names you buy and swear by.
olympus for my camera, clinique for my face (when I can afford it), tampax, moleskin, garnier (for hair stuff and body moisturiser), body shop for make up, coop cheap own brand for food :-)

List the things you do between turning off the alarm and walking out your front door.
This is extremely variable, as I'm not working at the moment. But I'm generally a "stay in bed as long as possible and then run round the house in a panic for 30 minutes before sprinting out the door late" type of girl

List all the extravagent material goods you'd buy if you had unlimited funds.
a car (audi or alfa romero), posh book shelves with ladder, cashmere sweaters (!), a mont blanc fountain pen, tiffany jewellry, an ipod or two, think that's enough for now....

List the tools you can't live without.
my laptop, my pocket pc, my mobile, my moleskin ntoebook, my livejournal, my digital camera!

List the things you scream and mutter when stuck on telephone hold.
I always press 0 to try and beat the system and get through to an agent, failing that I don't press a key when asked, as sometimes this makes the system think that you haven't got a digital phone and again you get routed to an agent!! Otherwise I normally sing along with the muzak (Ì`m a happy soul, me!)

List what items of modern technology have most shaped your life.
in a word one answer, computers (and all things IT), because professinally I've alwaws worked as an IT Trainer :-)
