Because this week has been surprisingly busy, I’m going to combine days 15 and 16 of 30 days of truth in the interest of keeping this exercise moving along.

Day 15 Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.

Shallow answer: cable TV. I really wish I could be one of those superior human beings who doesn’t watch TV, has no interest in TV, and spends their time pursuing intelligent, worthwhile things and not spending money on something so frivolous. I’m not. I love the history-lite stuff that they show on The History Channel. I love utterly stupid things like Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. I love passive gluttony on the Food Network. And I love all of My Shows on HBO. Now, obviously, if it were between eating and watching Ghost Adventures, I would…think long and hard about that. Heh. No, I know that since I’m one of those horrible people who has credit card and student debt that I don’t deserve the luxury of cable TV. But I really like it, so while I can, I’m making room for it in my budget.

Deep answer: the husband and the baby. Technically, I’ve never lived apart from the baby, but the husband I lived apart in the summer of 2002. Neither of us really had jobs and so could no longer afford our apartment. I moved in with my dad and he moved in with his mom. It was a sad time. Now, whenever I spend time away from them, I really don’t like it. I missed them terribly while I was at BlogHer in August, bursting into tears one night after talking to them on the phone. Charlie had to talk me down. They’re my dudes. I want them around always.

Day 16 Someone or something you definitely could live without.

I don’t really know how to answer this. It sounds snarky. Like, “I could live without you being a pain in my ass all the time.” But I think it’s supposed to be about what I could sacrifice. I mean, all any of us really needs is shelter, food, water, and love. Everything else is just cherries on top, right?

Day 2 Something you love about yourself.
