I have a confession…I’m a teensy, tiny bit obsessive.
This is a trait I have inherited from my mother who has an entire room in her house dedicated to Beethoven.
But…I am not ashamed. In fact, I have learned to embrace my obsessive nature by posting about the things I currently heart.
So, without further ado, here is my list of things I currently heart (in no particular order):
- C’Poolin’ with My Sister
- Beauty and the Beast
- Nsync Christmas Album
- Sherlock and Ultimately B.Cumb
One of the many wonderful things about my job is how close it is to my sister’s job. We often meet for lunch, but we are also able to car pool together. As we often do, we abbreviated the term to “c’pool” for no good reason. Every Friday we take turns driving and we hit up Sbux before heading in to work. I order my algae latte, she orders her wimp temp beverage of choice. There was one Friday that we had to ride separately from one another and saw each other on the road…we proceeded to put our hands up to our windows and cry.
Because I am 12, I get obsessed with these flippin CW shows. It is ridiculously embarrassing, but there. I said it. I watch and love Beauty and the Beast. When I first saw previews for the show, I rolled my eyes and secretly hates it because the “beast” seemed to have only a slight scar, but was otherwise attractive. I grew up with my mom watching the original in which Vincent was all beast all the time. I felt this was just another TV show that had far too many good looking people in it for it to be realistic. Alas, when Season 1 appeared on Netflix, I started watching and immediately became obsessed. Of course, I had to drag my sister into my obsession so I wouldn’t have to endure it alone. She Noe blames me for the hell Season 2 is putting us through. (Why, Vincent, why???)
Nothing says “Happy Holidays” like the beautiful sounds of Nsync’s Home for Christmas album to a 90’s kid. Much to the dismay of JT, I’ve been rocking out to this album since Thanksgiving. I can’t even tell you the intense excitement I have when it is finally appropriate to start listening to the album. Anytime I hear Nsync or see Justin Timberlake, I get this nostalgia…the kind you would get when remembering happy times you had with an ex boyfriend…probably because I spent most of the 90’s pretending JRT was my boyfriend. But now, instead of my initials being BLT as I always hoped, I married a different JT…
Ok, I have to get some cred for being obsessed with BBC’s Sherlock and Benedict Cumberbatch (who has the most epic name, ever). I started watching the show a couple years ago, but only recently discovered Season 2 was on Netflix. I may watch CW shows, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have a special place in my heart for shows that don’t underestimate the audience’s intelligence. Also… b.cumb…swoon.
I want to add that I almost put the Hobbit trailer as an obsession simply for B.Cumb’s voice as Smaug, but I didn’t… Sort of. It isn’t bolded at least!
So, those are my top obsessions for the time being. I do not doubt that new ones will surface in the near future, thus prompting a new post soon.
In the mean time, I’m going to try to scribble in my written journal for a bit until sleep overtakes me…which won’t be long, I’m sure. It is 8:30pm after all…waaay past my bedtime
