I believe that I'm a wee bit obsessive-compulsive, so when I end up loving something, I tend to go overboard. Here are just a few of the things I'm totally glomming these days....
I read "Slave To Sensation" maybe a year ago, and while I liked it, I wasn't enthralled...at least not at the time. But I recently re-read it, and then grabbed a copy of "Angels' Blood", and now I'm all about Nalini. Sure I'm late to the party, but whatever. I have about 4 or 5 stories, including the anthologies, to go gaga over, and I am beside myself with excitement. I think I just needed to get into a paranormal state of mind, and now that I am, I don't want to leave anytime soon. And who knew angels could be so hot????
I told myself that with the blogging and Yahoo groups and all the other things I get sucked into online that I wasn't going to let Twitter control me. And it hasn't, not completely. But I find myself getting pulled in, sort of like that little voice in your head that says it's okay to have one more piece of chocolate, and then it becomes another until it's melted all over your face. But I digress. Twitter is the word. I only have about 1550 updates compared to others who have over 15,000, but still, I am hooked. And the really bad thing is, I can access it from work, so I've been very bad. But it's kinda fun. Do any of you Twitter, or have you managed to escape it's seductive siren's song?
I admit, when I first started watching this, I rolled my eyes at how the formula went: doctors thought they knew the illness, but they're wrong. They think they know again. Again, they are wrong. Finally when the patient is just about to die or suffer some horrible fate, they figure it out. It's funny how the doctors have no guilt over breaking into someone's house to find the answers. Huh. But it grew on me like mold. I'm hooked. Dr. House is a curmudgeon who says whatever the hell he wants, but he's not the mean, spiteful jerk I thought he was going to be. He's rather likable. I think I might even have a weird little crush on his character. So of course I want to know more about him, and the other characters, though I'm a little irritated right now about how quickly they're willing to turn on House, but I guess if he was my boss, I might feel the same way. I've only watched the first 4 discs, there are 2 more to go in season 1, and I cannot wait to get them. And I want to glom the rest of the seasons, but I'm going to try and pace myself. Of course that will probably be a complete lie and I'll add the next several seasons to my Q to watch next.
Now I know Hugh Laurie is English, but he sounds so very different than House. Take a listen...
What are some of your current obsessions?
