5 Things I'm Obsessed With

What better way to get to know someone than to discover a few of their
peculiarfavorite obsessions? So to help you get to know me just a wee bit better, I'm starting a new category called My Obsessions. And every so often I'm gonna list a random number of random obsessions for your random enjoyment. K?

1. Fairies. And I mean the politically correct fantasy-type fairies. Let's just say I have a thing for the "week folks."  And I'm utterly convinced they're the ones stealing socks from my dryer. I've even captured one in the act. I'm holding her for ransom until all my socks are returned.

2. Colored Paper Clips. Why? Because regular paper clips are boring, boring, boring. And colored paper clips are fun, fun, fun! [Or something that sounds less crazy.]

3. Real Housewives of...OK, I'm obsessed with a few of these shows: Orange County, New Jersey, Beverly Hills, and New York..and yes, in that very order.  Some may call it reality TV. I call it mindless escapism into the world of the under-censored and overly-privileged that somehow manages to make me feel better about my own life. There's actually no logical reason why I like these shows, but hey, I do. And I'm not
totallyashamed of that fact. You gotta problem with that? Don't make me go Jersey on your a$$ and flip a table on you or something.

4. Buying Books I Don't Have Enough Time to Read. Since I baby-sit my granddaughter for most of the week, in addition to helping the Hubs with his biz, running some online businesses of my own, working for a web host, getting creative in my studio, taking care of the house, cooking, paying bills, and, oh yeah, a little thing called blogging, I don't have a lot of time left over to read. I love to read. But with my time being much less my own, I find myself able to read less--only it doesn't actually stop me from buying books. My reasoning is that someday I won't need to baby-sit anymore (or at least, not so much), and that will free up more of my days. It will also free up more of my nights, since as it is now, I do everything at night that I don't have time to do while baby-sitting during the day. Got that so far?  Bottom line is that at some point, I'm gonna have lots more time to read. And I want to have books I want to read when that time finally arrives. But oy, in the mean time...it's interesting trying to find space for all the books!

5. This Gif of Cap'n Jack Sparrow.

I don't know why I'm obsessed with it. But I am. And it's, you know, Johnny Depp. As my favorite pirate. Cap'n Jack. Isn't that enough reason?

So there are 5 obsessions for this week. See? You know me better already.
