What are your harmless obsessions? I have so many, I wonder if it’s possible to count them. If if it’s something I want on a regular basis, I count it as an obsession. If I’m the only one that is affected by it, then to me, it’s harmless. Today, I indulged in a few. I’ve been slaving over a white paper and while I know what I want to say, getting it out has been akin to having teeth pulled without Novocain. When that is the case, I do indulge. Now, in the past, the indulgence would have including a chicken wing or 10, but I’m trying not to go down that route. Today, it’s much more mundane and just a wee bit healthier, but definitely not cooler.
I was at the epitome of cool when I shut down on television. Seriously, I had the toys, but the only TV I watched were old movies – I had TCM, Retroplex and Netflix on speed channel selection and web selection. Other than perhaps MSNBC or looking for school closings, the only current TV I watched was the Daily Show with the kids.
Then…my downfall. I spent the the Thanksgiving holiday with my big sister and in the process got HOOKED on NCIS…..a show that I laughed at before. Now – I can’t stay away. I love this show – watch the reruns and won’t move on a Tuesday night. I wish I had done this when the thing first came on, so that I could be over it by now. The only really unhealthy thing that still accompanies this is that I really like a Gimlet while I watch it…..
