Ten on Tuesday

Oh what fun we have on Tuesdays!
For each of the following 10 categories, tell us which brand/product you use and why.
1. Cell Phone
Brand doesn't matter so much, but cell phone service provider does: Verizon.  No amount of convincing will ever...uh...convince me Verizon doesn't have the best coverage.

2. Email
Hotmail.  Because I've had it since I was in high school.  I don't understand the difference between 'em all.  How many ways can you get someone their electronic mail?

3. Toothpaste
This is where I'm picky: Crest Whitening Expressions.  It foams so nicely, and the taste is refreshing.  However, I am supposed to stay away from whitening products as they make my mouth swell up and my gums bleed.  Eh.

4. Car
I drive a Hyundai, but I do rather enjoy BMWs.  Corey drives one, and although I am not allowed to drive it (he claims I almost hit an old man, soooo false) I do enjoy how they handle.  And 0 to 60 in half the time as my putt-putt mobile is a tad exhilarating.

5. Writing Utensil
Pentel R.S.V.P.  Blue ink.  Fine point.  I'm picky here, too.  I don't allow strangers to borrow my pens and black ink grosses me out.  This is weird.

6. Lotion
Whatever is on sale at Target.  I stay away from the fancy schmancy stuff because I'm not convinced it works any better than up&up (Target brand) for dry skin.  I write this as a tube of fancy schmancy sits next to my computer....let me explain: it was on sale and I like the design.

7. Interior Paint
There's a difference??  I've painted two rooms in my life, but if I had to do it again, I would choose the stuff that has the primer already in it.  Best thing since sliced bread.

8. Soda/Drink
Water.  Of the Poland Springs or Saratoga variety.  I gave up soda when I was 13 (so I could focus more on brownie intake) and have consumed the entire contents of Lake Michigan since that time.  Twice.

I may exaggerate.

9. Laundry Detergent
We use Gain, and it smells heavenly.  However, I have no idea if it gets my clothes any cleaner than Tide.

10. Medicine
No, thanks.  I like my medicine like I like my horseradish: far, far away.
Thanks for stopping by.

No medicine? Wow. I would die without medicine. Too many headaches!

Those RSVP pens are too skinny for me. I need more ink. MORE INK.

Water's my favorite, too.
What you're saying about lotions might be true. I've been wondering about that some while ago, but then just stuck to my "old and known" brand that I knew was good, but still at a reasonable price.
