This four-letter word is safe around children

Lovelovelovelove. One of my favorite four-letter words. With all of you amazing friends and fellow bloggers, it's really hard to choose just one of you to gush about for Sheri's "I Got You" Blogfest, so Candyland's making her own rules (what's new...). I'm choosing someone that's always there for me, always inspires me and always has my virtual back. It's not Brady. It's not the hubs. It's not even Yahoo Mail (which has been lacking lately)...

I would be nowhere, without Google, because of this new search (click to enlarge): #thanksgoogle
And quite literally, I'd be NOTHING, without my two morning compadres. No, not my life partner and the child I bore, but these two cuties: #thisislove
So okay, yes, my coffee maker is grimy, but it does one thing Brady, the hubs or even Yahoo Mail can't do. That's right, it gives me wings so I can fly. Or is that Red Bull? Whatev. I love the thing and if you try and tear us apart, I'll cut you.

And my beloved laptop (not my hand) (well, yeah, my hand too) (I need to thank my hand) (not for dirty reasons) (minds. gutter. out.). Without you, I could not spend countless hours writing about Fartypants, FBooking when I should be working, and cyber stalking the likes of New Medicine hotties. Also, I could not have found each and every one of you, without this very special blog buddy, whom we will now call Lappy.

So as you see, friends, I couldn't pick just one, because I love you ALL and I hate leaving people out. So....to every beautiful pair of eyes, I EFFING LOVE YOU. And to those of you that were around from the start and near start while I fumbled awkwardly through the blog-o-sphere, you know who you are and I will always be grateful you started reading my crap.

All you newbies, I hope you don't scare easily, because I've got more seepage of random to share, if you'll have me. #addictedtoyou

(At the risk of sounding slightly partial, If I *must* brag about one actual living, breathing human, I shall refer you to THIS POST. You will see here, the reason I write [and dream big, and laugh and cry and believe in the kindness of strangers] at all...)

Until tomorrow friends, what is ONE thing you can't live without?
Candyland + LAPPY. OUT.

Renae said...

Aw, are you getting sentimental on us? I love your twist on the blogfest...I don't like to leave people out either?

Jen said...

I'm with you on the google thing!!! I love google and all it's glory, it's amazing!!!

Something I can't live without (I'm going to go mushy here) my husband (because we've had a week together and now we're back at work, and it sucks) I can't imagine my life without him. He rocks and i love him (told you it was mushy. I'm in a mushy mood)

Lappy. Love that. It's true. There are so many amazing peeps out there! Give us all hope.

Matthew Rush said...

Dammit. I was about to say what is so important about your hand in a weird red light making an Edward Scissorface gesture. Then you clarified. Damn you.

I forgot to do this today like the disorganized crack ho that I am, so mine is going up tomorrow. It may make you jaded Bethy.

Christine Danek said...

I can't live without my family. I know typical answer but as much as they get on my nerves I love them to death.
Writing is there too because it takes me out of the stressful moments.

Anne said...

Aww. I heart Google so much too! In fact in the past week as I have been searching online for goggles I have typed Google consistently every time.

Kelly Breakey said...

Your blog of course. *grins*

Okay, what do I win? Just kidding!
Kinda. No, really, just kidding. Maybe.

For me it is def not a coffee maker because I CAN'T STAND THE STUFF. Not that I think coffee drinkers are bad, I just HATE COFFEE!

So if I had to pick two things it would be my blue tooth headset at work because I hate being on the phone and not being able to continue to work and for personal use my iPad. I heart my iPad so much that I would have to cut anyone who tried to take it from me. And believe me they have tried.

Duh. Chocolate. ;)

Janet Johnson said...

My family is tops, of course. They keep me going AND drive me crazy. Quite the combo. But for this moment in my life what I absolutely cannot live without . . . disposable diapers and wipes. Seriously.

aspiring_x said...

the fams of course! :)

Vicki Rocho said...

OMG, I can't live without Google! I'll let you have the coffee, but I would fight to the death over Google...good thing there's enough of him to go around!

Patty Blount said...

Linda and Kelly said it for me...

Hate coffee, (ick) but love chocolate.

And Twitter.

And Avery Cates.

and your blog!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Coffee is a good choice. I can go with that. :-)

I almost chose Lenny, but I assumed you would. I loved that post, Candace - thanks for linking so I could read it again.

Mara Nash said...

The interwebs in all its glory. Don't even want to think about how isolated and uninformed my life would be without it!

Dawn said...

I'm right there with you with respect to the coffee maker. Hubs and I make two pots because he carts a thermos to the job site. I manage with two to-go cups a day...barely.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

You are sooo funny!

Carolyn V. said...

Definitely my lappy. Gotta have it! Oh, and chocolate. I think I'm addicted.

Nicole Zoltack said...

I love google! I swear I use it fifty bazillion times a day. But I also need my family too. And writing.

Talei said...

I'm with you on google - what would we do without it?! ;)

LTM said...

I freakin forgot today was Blog hop day... CRAP! And then you stole my idea, so when I post it tomorrow, it's gonna look like I'm trying to be you. When the truth is you're trying to be me...

LOL! j/k. Back atcha~

Creepy Query Girl said...

I couldn't pick one either! For some reason I was saving my blogfest post for friday- completely convinced it was on sept 17th, not sept 15th. Oh well, one of the great things about living abroad- it's never too late to post:)

Amanda Sablan said...

It takes a lot to scare me, actually, but you're getting close. ;]

I cannot live without cheese. There, I said it.

VICTORIA SAAVEDRA said...

Google rocks and so does music :)

PK Hrezo said...

I couldn't live without lip gloss... pathetic, I know... but gosh darn I love the way it makes my lips shine. lol!
Found your blog from Sheri's blogfest. Cute post!

C.E. said...

can't live without indoor plumbing. Everything else, I could get along without (my mental sanity might collapse and all) but plumbing...no. no. #2 in the woods? no...

Erin MacPherson said...

Mmmm... coffee. Have you tried the one-cup makers? I had it at my sisters house when we went to visit and now I just can't stop. I'm obsessed.

Theresa Milstein said...

One thing I can't live without? Coffee? Laptop? Aack - I need a coffee-laptop so I don't have to choose!

beth said...

Yes, where would we be w/o coffee and lap-tops? I'm with you!

Kelly Dexter said...

Aw, Lenny is the perfect person to brag about!

As for living and what it would not happen without? That would be music, above all things.

Robyn Campbell said...

Great post. We love you. That's why we keep coming back. And we keep coming and keep coming back.

GOTTA HAVE MY COFFEE.
