Things That I'm Addicted to...

I have what my doctor calls an "addictive personality."  This means that I am easily addicted to things that I find entertaining....or really just about anything new.  I have found that my life, during the free-time, is a series of addictions.

As it happens, I have found that there are a few specific addictions that have outlasted temporary status, and become long-lasting fixations.  These are the things that I focus on in my free time.  The things that demand my attention.  The things that I can become completely absorbed in, regardless of the time I have spent on them recently, or how long I have been away from that particular obsession  hobby.

So here is a list of the things that I am most addicted to.
  • Puppies - Because who could resist that face?  I think those of you who have been around here long enough know just how much I love Sophie, my dog.  Even if she is kinda stupid....
Sister's Puppy, Lily
  • Blogging - I can't actually say that this is one of my long-lasting obsessions that I keep coming back to....I haven't been doing this kind of blog long enough to know for sure....but it's definitely not my first venture into writing.  Or into blogging.

  • Video Games - These are definitely an obsession that I mess with.  I know that I've said that working screens turn men into zombies..... but as it turns out, they turn me into a zombie also.  My game of choice varies quite a bit, but there is always a game that I'm likely to play on any given day.
  • SyFy and Anime TV series - These change from time to time, but Fiance and I own every single Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis episode there is on dvd.  We also own all of Andromeda.  Plus a plethora of anime's....including Fruits Basket, Fullmetal Alchemist, Dragonball Z, Witchblade..... I'm obsessed, people.  Not to mention all the shows available for free through Hulu.
  • Polka Dots - This is easily my favorite pattern ever.  If I have more than one of something, you can bet that at least one of them is covered in polka dots.  Even my blog background, which I made myself, has a kind of polka dot look to it.  I just can't help myself.
  • Cookies - This one is obvious.  Quite frankly, how could I NOT be addicted to cookies?  I was a big fan of the Cookie Monster for a very long least until they messed with him so that he'd be more "healthy."
  • Dinosaurs - These are my favorite creatures of all time.  They are also lots of fun to draw!  Here are just a few of the drawings I've already done of them!

  • Fancy Classic-Looking Books - If you have a nice thick, heavy, book that is leather-bound with built-in ribbon bookmarks and gold-edged pages, you can bet that I want to buy it from you!  I think that the look of a bunch of those kinds of books lined up on a shelf or fireplace mantle is so classy.  I am just addicted to it.
  • Cooking - I love cooking.  Cooking desserts, cooking entrees, cooking rolls, cooking pasta, cooking pizzas.....LOVE it.  One year spent in a kitchen-less dorm was all my inner housewife needed to roar its ugly head and insist on kitchen access on a regular basis.


    1. OMG I love polka-dots! And Fullmetal Alchemist. Have you seen Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood yet? It is MORE AWESOME than the first series :D

    2. My puppy Lilly = cutest puppy ever born.

      And argyle is MUCH better than polka dots!

    3. That puppy is cute! And yay for video games? :D Dinosaurs though? Hmm...

      (Your pics always make me smile!)

    4. I'm the same with leather bound books. They look fantastic. Especially on a floor to ceiling bookcase. *dream*

      I also love the 'I'M POKEY' dinosaur!

    5. You're addicted to crazy random things like dinosaurs too! Yay. So I'm not the only crazy person with an addictive personality!

      I think that means we should stay away from drugs. Drugs are bad.

    6. I LOVE fancy class-looking books! Anthropologie just started selling classics with these glorious newly designed covers and I'm obsessed with them. I wish all my walls could be covered with book shelves and trinkets.

    7. I am so surprised by how many of you share my addiction to leather bound books! Barnes and Noble has been selling a bunch of them for $20 a pop, and I buy more very chance I get!!! I just LOVE them!
