Obsessive Behavior

I'm one of those people who is all or nothing. I can't just watch an episode of a television show or listen to a band. Once I discover something, I end up obsessing and overdosing on it til I'm totally sick of it and then move on to the next thing. I do it with food, too. I'll eat the same thing every night for like 2 weeks and then never want it again.

Here are a few of my current obsessions:

  • Watching Veronica Mars
  • Listening to KEANE
  • Drinking sparkling water
  • Eating grilled cheese sandwiches made on a George Foreman grill
  • Drinking New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
  • Reading Phillip K Dick novels
  • Playing World of Warcraft videogame (though this is a long term obsession)
  • Going to bookstores and checking out what imprint published what YA book
  • Reading my agent's blog and all the comments people write
  • Looking for NYC apartments on Craigslist to rent
  • Looking up my friends' MySpace pages and reading what other people wrote about them
  • Checking my email 50,000 times a day for a reason I cannot disclose at the moment

What about you? What are some of your obsessions?

You asked for it:
-- making myself white mochas (Nespresso Rocks)
-- watching The Office
-- checking my web stats
-- checking MY e-mail 50,000 times a day for reasons I cannot also explain right now
-- obsessing over my latest fiction book I am reading
-- finishing my latest novel

My #1 obsession is checking the email box that has my paypal account to see if anyone has bought one of my promoting ebooks! *grin* Haven't been over here in awhile, Marianne, but I'll try to be better!
