don't play dead before you have to

Brand Loyalty. Do you have it? If so, for what items?

Philadelphia cream cheese - definitely tastes waaaay better than the generic.

Nalgene water bottles - i used a falgene for a while, but only while i was waiting for my nalgene. I like having a brand name water bottle. but it has to be nalgene. i hate those fucking sigg users.

GAP/Old Navy clothing- I'm not sure if this counts because its not a specific item that I'm loyal to (but, if I was pressed I'd say gap and old navy pants), but in general i like their clothes and i'm loyal customer :)

MAC computer- once you go mac, you never go back.

Trojan condoms - trojan her pleasure. light purple wrapping. the only option in my opinion. (ps. this reminds me of one day buying condoms in Target with Erica.) fuck knox college for only giving away free durex. I'm pretty sure that is why the pull out method seemed like such a good idea. Although, the other day, I was watching a show and before the two characters even started getting it on they opened the condom. that is some smart shit. i don't know why i never thought of that. (after that i bet you are thinking that the next one on the list is going to be Plan B morning after pill. but its not. mainly because that is the only option and so it isn't really a choice. plus, i got brainz and went on the pill)

YAZ birth control - i will never switch. it was a bitch to get on (nauseous for like a month), but now we are besties.

OB tampons - i don't know anyone who doesn't like these. speak now or forever hold your peace.

Coke - I try not to drink soda that much anymore, but when I do it has to be coke. pepsi is nasty.

Hmm. Thats all I can think of.

What are yours!??!

no one drinks/or likes pepsi. i am definitely a coke person. knox college was just confused and served those nasty pepsi products.

i am also very loyal to peter pan peanut butter. i found it at the safeway supermarket and rekindled my love for this type of pb.

OB... really. I once knew a girl who would have to insert with lube. Ew. Find yourself an applicator!
Also Coke is way better than Pepsi.

Also what about Brand Aspirational? I shop at Forever 21 because I can make outfits look higher end. I am loyal to the image that Forever 21 gives me, but not to the store.

You KNOW I have brand loyalty.

J.Crew, Levis, those same trojans you talked about (seriously, I need to buy me some). Vitaminwater. Kellogg's Raisin Bran, I hate Post.

also, i'm a friend of Yaz as well. I'm really too poor to keep buying it, but I really like it. So there.

GNU/Linux - a computer operating system for 'people who know what they're doing' by 'people who know what they're doing'

Gibson Guitars - there's no substitute, though many other guitar brands are great in their own way

Sony Professional headphones (specifically model MDR-7506) - had these guys for almost 10 years now and don't know what the world would sound like without them

That's about all I can think of at the moment ... ;-)

stephanie - oo i like the idea of brand aspiration. that could be a whole new post on its own. i definitely have that. in fact, i think i have more brand aspiration than brand loyalty. sick.
