Needs and Wants

Five, Oops, Seven Things I Can't Live Without:
--iPod
--Camera
--Library card
--Lots of snuggly blankets and pillows and stuffed animals
--Cheese. No, ice cream.
--Passport
--DVR

Five, Err, Six Things I Want To Live Without:
--Sensationalistic newsmedia (annoying! depressing!)
--Hipsters (Self-explanatory.)
--Trend-lovers (Dude. A lot of trends are hideous. Just because magazines say they're in and they cost many hundreds of dollars does not mean it's actually cute or cool!)
--Bad Drivers (I have road rage! But it's not my fault--a lot of people are assholes/too slow!)
--Stupid People (Argh!)
[Do people count as things? Aw, hell, it's my blog, sure they do!]
--Cheesy Tourists (More with the Argh!)

Five Things I Want But Must Live Without:
--A DSLR. (Oh, how I want one. Every weekend I look at craigslist and see listings for D40s or Rebels and I just swoon. I really can't afford it. )
--Photography classes. (Ditto)
--An unlimited budget for books. And unlimited time to read them.
--An unlimited budget for ice cream! And cheese! Ooh, and banana chocolate! And maybe pickles!
--Jeans that fit correctly and make my ass look hot.

If you want jeans that fit correctly and make your ass look hot, you'll have to invest a little bit of time. You need to go to a store and try on all different kinds of jeans. It gets tiring and repetitive, but it pays off in the long run! Try Levi's at 59th street, NY Jean Company on 3rd and 70-something (next to Crumbs bakery), and Macy's. Gap is good for tall people, with no hips. Old Navy is good if you want to look like someone's mom, aka mom jeans. Ha ha.

LOL- So much for my suggestion of looking into "Not My Daughter's Jeans"- although the fit great and make your ass look hot (and cost 3 hours of per session pay). But then again, since you're young enough to be my daughter, you know where I'm coming from......

Thank you for mentioning the passport. I went through immigration/customs a couple of weeks ago and the officer reminded me that mine was about to expire. That conversation, of course, totally slipped my mind.

Now I have my passport on my desk with the renewal application set to go. Thanks!

What's wrong with hipsters? I love hipsters! I hope you find the hot-ass jeans, there are too many "mom" jeans out there.

PS: In case it's not obvious, I am a guy...
