Brand Names Which Makes Life Easy!

I am running apologies!

A cousin of mine passed away and I had to go to Cebu over the weekend to attend her funeral and back in Bacolod within 24 hours. I am still not over the thought that she passed away trying to deliver her baby and we both lost them. (I will blog about it another time.)

Needless to say I am so tired and in the middle of so many things...but oh well, Monday is supposed to be a Fun Monday so here goes some brand names which makes life easy, well at least mine!

Let me start with Tylenol! This has been a good company in times of migraines. I always carry it in my bag...and for whatever reason this really works well with me than any other pain relievers.

After this comes my comfort drink --

And of course, how could I miss another company in times of colds --

The latest addition which is close to my heart and has been helping me get by my crazy schedule is Blackberry!

And of course there are a lot of brand names which makes life generally easy to a point that we have used this brand names as generic labels...below are some examples which I can think of --

  • “Band-Aid” when we mean adhesive bandage
  • “ChapStick” when we mean lip balm
  • “Clorox” when referring to any bleach
  • “Crayola” when we mean crayons
  • “Discman” when we mean portable personal CD player
  • “Elmer’s” when referring to any type of adhesive glue
  • “Frigidaire” when we mean refrigerator
  • “Frisbee” when we mean flying disc
  • “Glad Wrap” or “Handy Wrap” or “Saran Wrap” when we mean plastic wrap cling film
  • Google” when we mean looking up something in a search engine
  • Hacky Sack” when we mean footbag
  • iPod” when referring to any type of personal portable media player
  • “Jacuzzi” when referring to any hot tub or whirlpool bath
  • “Jeep” when referring to any compact sport utility vehicle
  • “Jell-O” when we mean gelatin dessert
  • “Kool-Aid” when we mean cold sweetened flavored drink
  • Nintendo” when referring to any older video game console or system
  • “Photoshop” when we mean photo manipulation
  • “Ping Pong” when we mean table tennis
  • “Polaroid” when we mean instant photograph or instant camera
  • “Popsicle” when we mean an ice pop or any frozen confectionary treat on a stick
  • “Post-its” when we mean sticky notes
  • “PowerPoint” when we mean electronic presentation
  • “Q-tips” when we mean cotton swabs
  • “Rollerblade” when referring to inline skates
  • “Scotch Tape” when we mean clear adhesive tape
  • “Styrofoam” when we are referring to extruded polystyrene foam
  • “Super Heroes” when we mean superhero (“Super Heroes” is co-owned and trademarked by Marvel & DC Comics)
  • “Tampex” when referring to tampons
  • “Tupperware” when referring to any type of modular food storage containers
  • “Vaseline” when we mean petroleum jelly
  • “Velcro” when referring to any hook-and-loop fastener
  • “Walkie-Talkie” when referring to any portable handheld radio or two-way radio transceiver
  • “Walkman” when we mean portable personal stereo player
  • “WaveRunner” when referring to any personal watercraft
  • “Xerox” when we mean photocopier or to make a photocopy
  • “Ziplock Bags” when referring to any type of reusable, re-sealable zipper type storage bags
  • “Zippo” when referring to refillable lighters
So that's it...I need to get some naps as it is 2AM here and I have to be back at the office in less than 6 hours and might stay there for the next 16 hours or so. I promise to visit everyone later tonight.

Wish you all a great week!

I never thought about medication ! Of course Aspirine makes my life easier too from time to time !
Sorry to read that you had such a sad event, how terrible when mother and baby die !

Faye said...

I'm very sorry for your loss, Mariposa. It is almost too much sorrow to wrap your mind around for the whole family, I'm sure.

I'm an Excederin fan myself and must have a "real" coke a couple of times a week.

I'm so sorry to hear about your cousin and her baby. That's just heartbreaking.

I'm impressed you mustered up a post, but I must say that I am a definite Coke product fan. If only Pepsi products are offered, I'll usually opt for tea or water because Pepsi just doesn't taste right to me. That's quite a list you put together!

By the way, we rather like the month-at-a-time format for hosting. I will be doing September and Faye will do October.

Sayre, you and Faye are very much welcome! ;)
