Topic current obsessions: Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

By boxless On 04/02/04  

Since I looove lists and all, I thought I should make one for my current obsessions.

modest mouse, bob marley, wavy hair, CLEAN perfume, Demeter Grass, my smiley faced cloud robe, Demeter Dirt, birkenstock boston clogs, hemp jewelry, pilates, DIY projects, clinique lipgloss in whisper, taking my dog to the park, daisies, crafting, the four agreements, a heartbreaking work of staggering genius, captain morgan parrot bay rum, folk art, drew barrymore, gardening, those green frog rain boots, fitted denim jackets, hippie skirts, forehead kisses, supporting my fellow crafters, volunteering, brow waxes, and spending my money for a good cause (ie: especially when I see a child having a bakesale, or someone comes to my door to solicit something; if they take the time to come to my door, the least i can do is buy something)

What have you recently fallen in love with?

By KattWalk On 04/02/04  

my pregnant belly, strawberries, walking my dog, caldrea cleaners, vilmain items, grapefruit juice, naps, cooking home-style meals, grocery shopping, ny times online, reading lots of hip mama resources.

That Prada tinted lip balm; I just bought some baby tubes on Ebay for cheap and I now know why it's expensive, it's like buttah. Using Jane eyeshadow as eyeliner with my new eyeliner brush (jane's eyeshadows are very pigmented and beautiful, good quality stuff). Lady Grey tea (like earl grey with bergamot, but orange instead of lemon). The book, Pink Think. Hearing about my fiance's new job as a veterinarian assistant (he loves it and can spout some fascinating stuff). Caffeinated mints. And since i'm a big ol' lush, those TGI friday mixes with the liquor already in them, particularly the mudslides (i don't usually drink mixed drinks but a buddy brought it over and man oh man).

i'm obsessed with:
sleeping in (when i shouldn't be)
staying up late (when i shouldn't be)
making my non-commercial tan purse
wondering about the skirt that i'm trying to make out of jeans
constantly searching for my library card
thinking about all the good books i'd read if i had the time and my library card
trying to figure out how much a good pedicure costs
prom bets
anguish of shaving/body hair in general
watching "school of rock" with my parents
fructis shampoo
my new liquid eyeliner (err, the cheap kind. "love my eyes" or something.)
college searches.

welcome to my world: more intangible than tangible.

My gigantic new bed, with my even more gigantic new quilt on it, my lunatic puppydog who just learnt to bring the paper to us rather than ripping it to shreds, getting paid to do crafts with kids, crayola model magic (seriously, if you haven't used this yet, get some! It's all cool and foamy, and better yet, mess-free), scouring the beach for pebbles to paint, daffodils and freesias, corn on the cob with butter, Formby red squirrel reserve (ladyjane would go nuts!), the kids who really believed that the easter bunny came into class while they weren't there to leave easter eggs for them.

I think that's it for now!

By shampoo martini On 04/03/04  

in no particular order, my current obsessions are:

the family guy, radiohead-ok computer, smashing pumpkins-gish, how to become happy again, tea, trying not to eat so much, journal writing, where and how to meet new friends, smoking cigarettes, coffee, bed head shampoo, working, finding new roommates, thrift store shopping, and obsesssing about all the little things that i never get done on a daily basis. and lets not forget, sushi!

not as bliss stricken as everybody else's but it was OBSESSIONS....and at times those arent blissful.

By jasmineT On 04/03/04  

current obsessions: wonderfalls, playing guitar and writing songs, my patio gardening project (with bamboo, pavers, and water channel), Vaseline renew and protect lotion (has worked wonders for little shaving bumps), protesting the state's increasing reliance on gambling as a revenue stream, searching for a minivan that won't break the bank or break down, and, finally, my new medicine (Plaquenil) that is finally working so I can do things again!

God, I'm so suburban...

small ceramic things (i keep picking up little cups, bowls, pots...i got some neat ones at Pottery Barn that fit perfectly between your handa, like a teacup should, but they have no handle. And i got some neat little squarish pots each with a mantis on it that kind of looks like an abstract line drawing or kind of like kanji writing)

planning little care packages for friends (i spend so much on postage)

used bookstores

jewelry (the same old stuff i always wear: an old ring, a green fabric cuff bracelet with beading, necklaces i made -- but i keep getting comments on them. i am currently coveting an ankle bracelet that i saw at Foley's last night)

Hmmm . . .

the bass player from the Wrens, apricot tea with soy milk, spring--so many leaves and flowers everywhere!, beer, the "I wish I were a Carpenter" tribute album that I've been rediscovering every few years since the ninth grade, dancing around the house in my cute new pairs of underwear, orange-avocado-baked tofu-nasturtium-mixed greens salads, my big white fuzzy rug that I just got in lieu of a couch, running, planning my yardsale-for-charity, taking pictures with my Pop Cam, all the knitting and reading I cannot do cause I'm too busy (including a beautiful sarong pattern that seriously gives me butterflies in my stomach too think about), being single again!! (but with a little something/someone to keep me occupied)
