You are an obsession

You are an obsession, You’re my obsession…

Mr. Sparky Duck tagged me for a little quiz. Fortunately I don’t seem to have the same obsession issues he does with boobs and sports, so I’m able to respond poste haste. Here they are, in no order of importance…my obsessions…

1. Counting. I count things. I have a counting habit. When I swim, when I run, when I’m doing anything that has to do with passing the time and concentrating on keeping up with where I’m at. And for someone that’s not very good with math, I do math in my head to figure out how much time is left, or how many laps are left, or whatever. It could be that I’m so bad at math, that I figure in my head, because by the time I get the answer right, I’ll be done with whatever I’m doing.

2. Learning. I’m very inquisitive and I always want to know: Why? I’m the little kid that never grew out of asking: Why? And really about people. I love watching a movie and then going and reading anything I can find on a person. Case in point: Watched Marie Antoinette Saturday night and I then spent a couple of hours yesterday reading about her and her family. Same with Cary Grant last weekend.

3. Perfection. I want to make things so perfect that I try too hard to do too much, and can never achieve what I set out to do. I know perfection doesn’t exist. Doesn’t keep me from trying though. Which also makes me insane, using the definition of insanity that it is doing something over and over again, expecting a different result. Go me.

4. Money. One of the things I wish I didn’t obsess over. But it’s not because I’m greedy or want more (well, I mean, who doesn’t want more, really). No, rather because there never seems to be enough. Everyone wants more, and so they seem to get mine. So, I’m constantly reprioritizing.

5. Martinis. I love martinis. They are delicious. Cosmos. Lemon drops. Pomegranate. Key Lime. Chocolate. The list goes on. Mmmm. Give me a martini and I’m a happy gal.

So there you are. My obsessions. And I haven’t tagged anyone with a meme in quite some time. I think I will do so today. So, eeny meeeny miney mo…I tag…
