Friday Five

1. What brand of toothpaste do you use?
Dr. Tichner's. it is a local brand. when i have lived away from home i stock up or have it sent. colgate is a backup cause i like the convenient little dispenser.

2. What brand of toilet paper do you prefer?
i don't really care.... whatever is on sale. i used to like the green forest recycled paper, but they quit selling it.

3. What brand(s) of shoes do you wear?
my favorites are mephistos. i went to get some new birks and ended up trying on a pair of mephistos. though they cost a little more, i was sold. as long as i have a good walking pair of mephistos, the rest of my shoes do not matter...payless or whatever is on sale.

4. What brand of soda do you drink?
i prefer non-bubbly drinks, but drink coke every now and then.

5. What brand of gum do you chew?
dentyne.

the only things of which i am brand specific are my coffee, cigarettes and OJ....my staples in life. CC's or La Llave espresso, virginia slims cigarettes and Tropicana + calcium OJ.

i'm frugal. i hate to shop. i mean absolutely hate it, so i buy whatever is easy and on sale! oh...unless it is the Body Shop!

Roma

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
