Sucking Up…and 5 Obsessions!

Well, well, well.   It seems that I have a lot of sucking up to do.   *tisk, tisk, tisk* 

Side Note:  (Sadly it’s going to have to wait until after this weekend…sorry Kelly…lol)

Soooo I got a note the other day on one of my blog posts from Kelly (Something Funny Happened Today) letting me know that I had been tagged.   I didn’t however know that she DOUBLE tagged me.  And better yet WHY she double tagged me.    But I knew I had it coming.  I’ve been pretty AWOL lately.   I don’t know exactly what my issue is, but I’ll tell you I do miss my friends and catching up…(so I’ll take care of that).

Kelly you are so sweet to me…thank you.  What a thug I am.   Tagged and an award too???   Geeze!  I sooo do not deserve this award right now while I’m in my blog-funk.


Where was I?  Oh yea!   Tagged.   I started working on the below list.  5 Obsessions.  I know I have more than 5, but these were hard to come up with…weird.   As I was working on them, I talked to Headless Mom on the phone this morning (She’s coming here!!!!  But that is another post all together…several posts!)…and told her what I was doing.  She said that Kelly double tagged me because she tagged me TWO WEEKS AGO and I had not done it.  OMG, I wasn’t even paying attention.  What kind of friend am I? 

So…without further a-do…

I present you my “5 Obsessions”.

  1. BlackBerry – There is nothing I can say I am more obsessed about than my BlackBerry Bold.  It has everything on it I need except for food (and it does kind of have that too).   BlackBerry Instant Messaging, Texting,  Email, Visual Voicemail, My Calendar, Camera, WordPress, Flickr, Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Itunes, Food Network, Google Maps/Latitude, The Weather Network.    OMG, did I just tell you all that?   (This has to count for the other 5, seriously…this is a huge obsession disaster if you ask me.)
  2. BabyAm – If the technology was not there at my fingertips, I’d have to say that my next obsession would be BabyAm.   And like Kelly and her obsession with Cleaning…those who know me IRL will now be spitting their coffee out their nose, because they know this is true.   I do not want her to have to go through all the BS that I had to go through in life…make the same mistakes, date the same kind of guys, get married too young…etc.  I just want her to have all the knowledge I THOUGHT I had before she finally decides she’s had enough of me (us) and moves out!  That will be a horrible day.
  3. Tea – This is purely by accident.   Every day (wait, I’ll be right back, it’s time now!),ok I’m back…Every day I have a “MUST HAVE TEA” moment…and it can’t be just any ol’ tea.  It has to be a “proper cup”, made just like Mrs. Potts would make it.  J  She knows how to make it just perfect…oh, and with a biscuit or a scone…even better!  
  4. Scrapbooking and (when possible) Genealogy – I love the time I get to spend with my friends making cards and scrapbooking.  My friend JoJo and I have been going once a week for at least a year now to work on our scrapbooks.   I finally feel like I’m accomplishing something.   And as for the Genealogy stuff…I enjoy it too, but it requires much more concentration and I haven’t had too much of that lately.  LOL – Winter is approaching, so I’ll probably get back into the swing of things soon!
  5. Books – Reading the back of them.   I could spend hours in the bookstore, in the 2nd hand stores (book section), yard sales…right by the box-o-books.   Conventions, yep…those too!  I have every BEST intention of reading each and every one of the books I buy…and I think if Hubby had his way, he would make our house a NO BOOK BUYING zone.   I don’t read much for pleasure…I just find that if I sit down with a book I get nothing done…so I buy them, because someday I might have nothing else to do. (Yeah, right!)

I haven’t been blogging much lately and haven’t been reading many blogs but I promise to get back to it soon.   Sooooooo, I’d like to reserve the right to pass this wonderful award on at a later date.   I like being a rebel, so if this is against the World Blogging Award rules…I will accept my punishment like a man.  LOLOLOL

Thanks again Headless Mom and Kelly (Something Funny Happened Today)…you guys are two of the greatest gals!   I’m so lucky to have found you both!


  1. Congratulations

  2. Wow – you have come along way. I have done my work – you are addicted to tea and I am proud to say black tea! Welcome to my world of tea snobbery. After reading your post I really need to get back to my blog and give it some attention. I have been away even longer than you. Will see if I can work on that.

    Now off to fix a cuppa and stamp!

    Mrs. Potts

  3. You are forgiven! Ha! I need to work on myb blog and need you around to push me, so truth be told I’m selfish. I tagged you because I need you around, I like to read about what’s up in your life, it’s all about me. Now would you get busy posting about cutting the cord I’m dying over here! he he

  4. Yeah, I can vouch for the blackberry addiction!
