Listography - inventions

This weeks listography from Kate Takes 5 is about inventions, so without further ado, I will list mine (before I look at anyone else otherwise I will get confused and realise there are many more ideas out there!)

  1. A time machine of some description be it like Doc Browns from back to the future only smaller, or the time piece Hermione from Harry Potter wears, I don;t care, I simply do not have enough hours in the day so this would be top of my list
  2. A transporter - bit of a common theme here as this is linked to number one, I am seriously lacking in hours per day so a transporter where I could stand on a spot, be dematerialised, and then rematerialise in a matter of seconds in a new place would save no end of time, be greener, lower my carbon foot print and generally make me a happy camper.
  3. A meal pill. I love to cook but I get so fed up of meal planning and trying to come up with a variety, that I often think a pill for each day of the week which could substitute an evening meal would be ideal.
  4. Some cheap way that us commoners could use for permanent, pain free hair removal in all the places us delectable women do not want hair sprouting.
  5. A volume button that can be installed on children (and possibly an adult version for husbands). I love to hear the kids playing and enjoying themselves, but there are times when I volume button might be quite nice just to turn them down a notch!
If you would like to see what everyone else would like to invent then pop over to Kate's blog and take part.

I love number 3, I also find meal planning such a chore. Think of the washing up you wouldn't have to do too..... x

Nel said...

A meal pill would also be very handy for annoying children who don't eat meals you have cooked because it is something new and therefore obviously YUK.

Yep, the meal pill has struck a chord with me too. No dishes, no high chairs to wipe...excellent idea!

Kate said...

Definitely no. 4 for me please. I mean really - in this day an age surely there should be something less painful and humiliating than 'the wax'?

Yes, I am in desperate need of Hermiones time shifter! I saw one on ebay and thought of getting it for a laugh!

My husband gave me a very long winded contribution and description of a hair removal device for this list. Together we could make a fortune!

I like the idea of a meal pill, but it would have to taste nice and make me feel full!

Yes to hair removal. I mean, seriously. It's a conspiracy by hair-removal implement companies to keep us all buying hair-removal implements. I think.

Great list :)

I'll back you up on the hair removal thing. Shaving is a right royal pain in the face. Fortunately, we housedads don't get out much so we can leave it a few days before anyone notices. Great list.

Yes a cheap, painless and permanent hair removal would be genius!
