Yes but the things that your brain DOES are actions...how can you give up a verb?

i think i could live without most things... well... i am living in a cabin right now with minimal electricity and plumbing, i don't know anyone, little comforts... but its loads of fun. most important i guess is having people around me? or kids... seeing happy kids definately makes my days better. erm... oh, I'm also rather fond of kites... and hmm... my guitar? or a notebook and paper? i need some way of expressing myself mostly.

Didn't mean to sound like I was accusing, just asking. I am totally open to the idea but I don't get it. :smile:

ya, i work at a summer camp right now. so i live there 24/7 for a few weeks in a really crummy cabin, (we actually refer to it as a shed because of how small it is and the way it look...) its very cool though. i love being out in the woods and stuff. its fantastic. tomorrow night we're sleeping out in tents.

and yes, kites... meaning those flying toys from Mary Poppins. i love to fly kites. it really makes you feel like a kid again.

Well, giving up would just be stopping. Right? :uhh:

The cabin sounds a bit like the accomodation you get when you go to a
Butlins Holiday park in the uk.

The woods, one of my fav places, we don't have any big one's left round here now, when we were kids we used to play in the woods, put it's private now, for
phesant shooting :grumpy:

Well, that makes one of us. You should probably stop following my logic before it slaps you with a restraining order. :tongue2: That could give you a paper cut, you know.

not including necessities and not including persons/pets - I assume we are talking things we not not wish to be without.
The internet - quite simply.
I can traverse the world in mere seconds, I can discover and learn anything I pretty much desire.
Being a creature who gets bored so exceptionally easy I crave information!

Lost without:
the hope that the current state of international affairs is just a horrible dream and I'm going to wake up any time now.

That and my 1 Gb USB "flash" memory stick.

My body.
I've tried as best as I could to lose it during moments of wild abandon, but somehow, it won't leave then, either.

I don't have the right to say 'I couldn't give up my computer'. It should be 'I couldn't bear my computer giving up me'.
I'm a slave of my computer...
