Shawn tagged me on this Obsessive Thoughts thing. The rules are simple:
- Link back to the person who tagged you
- List five of your obsessions
- Tag five other bloggers to list their obsessive thoughts.
Now first of all I have no idea why Shawn would think I have obsessive thoughts….but he is correct so here I go:
Money: I am constantly thinking about money or my lack thereof. I have been a student for soooooooooooo long and I have been in debt for the entire duration. I am always thinking of how I can cut costs so that I can have some money of my own…money that is not slated for bill payments or food. Still waiting for that day to come. I am always looking for ways to make my money make money and I love online banking because it makes everything so easy to track. I created my own Excel spreadsheets to track my finances years ago and I was overjoyed when I finally got Microsoft money to make the job easier. I balance my checkbook (on the few occasions that I write checks) immediately after doing a transaction so at any point in time I can tell you EXACTLY how much money I have in that account. No waiting on the float system for me.
My stats (like Shawn): I check my email constantly during the day. I also check my Technorati ranking and Google adsense multiple times during the day. I check my feeds constantly because I want to be up to date on what people are writing. I have become obsessed with the world of blogging since I started and even if I don’t have anything to write I can still be seen hunched over the computer reading other people’s blogs. Honey says I am like a crack addict trying to get a fix. He has recently started tapping his vein in his forearm and saying that is what I look like. I can’t help it….anyway I did already admit that I am a blogholic.
Teeth: I am constantly checking out my teeth to make sure there is nothing stuck in them. When I meet someone I must look at his or her teeth because I believe that your teeth tell a lot about you. Now if your teeth are crooked there is not much that you can do on a daily basis. I have used Crest Whitestrips because I love to see white teeth and I drink coffee and tea all day long. I just like to see nice looking teeth…but they do not have to look like Chicklets.
Falling: If you ever look at my flip flops you will see that I always have worn out spots where the big toes are before any other part of the shoe. I have this thing about falling and I actually grip my shoes in an effort to keep stable even though I know I will not fall. That is one reason why I do not like high heeled shoes (all the women reading this gasp in shock!) and so I own only very moderate heeled shoes….which I only wear on ‘special occasions’.
Potatoes: Yes that’s right I said potatoes. I just LOVE potato salad and potato chips and mashed potatoes (both the box kind and from scratch). I love potato pie and shepherd’s pie….in fact I love anything that you can make with potatoes. I would eat some form of potato every day if I could….but I realize how strange that is so I don’t do it. Plus I hate to peel the potatoes.
(I just found that I could post in different colors today so I am having fun with that. I always wondered if this template had the options to allow me to change the font color and I was disappointed every day when I was not able to do it. I just found the color button…so expect some rainbow posting soon.)
I am tagging Baz, Jagular, No Credit Needed, Millionster, and MyFinancial Odyssey.
Hahaha. tagging me eh? alright alright. I was just making a list of posts I wanted to write, this will be the second one! I should warn you though — my hands all cramped from playing basketball so I might no be able to type.. so if you see some Mes%$ LiK3 theS ypou Myte understand why hehe.
No problem Juan…I just want to get all your business out on the internet. Hee hee. So who won the basketball game?
You know I’m not quite sure lol. I did manage to make a number of impressive 3 pointers ^_^ ! Nothing but net!!! w00t!
Nice site. I see you are from St.Lucia hence the name lulugirl.
I have a fatal attraction with the carribean, beaches, perfect weather, sipping fruity drinks. I’m trying to get there in December. Me and my husband will do a carribean cruise.
I was told they speak french there, is that true?
Ok I got my obsessions up!
I am reading them now.
not quite french but creole…like what they speak in louisiana….
i just read the part about teeth to my daughter. i said, see, i’m NOT the only who feels this way about teeth and especially other ppl that I meet. honestly there’s NO excuse for dingy teeth EVER 🙂
Hey Tanyetta, my boyfriend says I am being shallow for obsessing about people’s teeth because it is not something they can help. I say there is always something that can be done. I am not going to penalize a poor person for having messed up teeth…but when I see someone all blinged out and they have bad looking teeth…Well!!!! Get rid of all the jewelry and get some Crest Whitestrips.
