What we can really do without!

Thank you for reading the previous post and for making further suggestions. Here they are:

Andrea from suggested: Tonsils, tailbones and appendices (of course, that nuisance appendage that can become life-threatening without notice...and we have no use for it!). Great thinking Andrea!

Sarah Lulu from agreed with some of the suggestions I had many more! By the way, don't you love the name of her blog: "Normal is a cycle on a washing machine"?

Houda from suggested: Food addiction (yes, and who doesn't have one of those!).

Lilly from suggested blog addiction(another of those afflictions I am sure we all share!), stress, illness, wrinkles, tooth decay and long sightedness. Makes me cringe when I think about it!

Mae from suggested wisdom teeth, hairy ANYTHING but especially toes and ears. Mae also pondered:

"Why shopping is tiring when there's plenty of money and boundlessly fascinating when broke....."

And, anyone who mentions hommous in the comments section gets to have a link posted on my blog, so here's to you Darla! (from

I guess we need another three million years of evolution before any of these annoying qualities are annihilated from woman- and man-kind for good! In the meantime, there is always, plucking, waxing, shaving etc, revelling in the fact that glasses can be turned into a fashion item and that there are some amazing op shops finds. Plus, what a terrific high one gets from a good bargain; the cheaper the item, the higher the high! Oh, and what use would all that dental equipment be if it weren't used for teeth? If dental problems were no longer an issue and hence the need for dentists abolished, then maybe these professionals with immaculate attention to detail could venture into beauty? Imagine getting your eyebrows waxed whilst inhaling laughing gas...regardless of the result, at least pain would be reduced somewhat. Or would you rather a mani/pedi with that same grinding, whizzing sound?

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a message on my blog - I thought I'd return the compliment.

Eyebrow waxing is bad enough (a necessary evil for bushy eyebrowed people like me) but it's even worse when you start to find grey eyebrow hairs!!

see you there! said...

Besides the personal things?

I can do without earthquakes but since we live in earthquake country that probably won't happen.

I can do without commercials on tv. That's why I hardly watch tv except on more or less commercial free PBS.

I can do without the loud music so many shops seem to have to play.

Don't want to do without blogging tho.

notSupermum: Hi there and thank you for commenting. Believe me I share the same feelings re: grey eyebrow hairs!

Darla: I was in San Fran in 2001 and during the night I noticed some of the mini-tremors you hear so much about - they were scary enough. Loved the city though. Reminded me so much of my home city Sydney esp near the water.

Aspiring writer: Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for your comment. Look forward to your future posts.
