Hobbies, obsessions. Same Things, Right?
by Kim Castillo
Hello Divas!! It's wonderful to be a part of this lovely group. Since this is my first post I thought it might be fun to get to know each other a bit better. That leaves us one thing to talk about-obsessions!
What I'm obsessed with right now:
Taylor Swift! I've long been a big fan but had only bought a song here and there. Well, Speak Now solved all of that for me. October 25, I ran out to Target to buy their special edition and immediately loaded it into my iTunes. Then my bff, Di, and I got to gushing over T-Swizzle and before I knew it I had downloaded her full discography. That's right. I've got a Taylor Swift playlist and it's been on repeat for a month straight and I'm proud of it. Although I think my husband is a bit sick of it. But that's ok, he'll come around. Eventually.
HARRY POTTER! Sometime today, my 19 year old son, (reluctant) husband and I, along with the rest of the free world will be watching The Deathly Hallows part 1. Woohoo! Even though I know how the story ends, I'm breathless with anticipation to see it come to life. My only worry is that I won't take enough tissues for those sad scenes.
The Big Bang Theory. Bazinga! This is a recent discovery for me and I had to buy seasons 1-3 on dvd. Gil and I had a marathon and I was sad when it was over. I can't get enough of Sheldon and Penny. My favorite episode is the one where Sheldon gets sick and asks Penny to sing soft kitty. Pure hilariousness.
Dexter. Is there anyone who isn't rooting for Lumen and Dexter to hook up? I think not. If they don't, I do believe Vanessa Kelly and I will boycott them.
Stuffing! Thanksgiving is next week and this year I'm determined to make homemade stuffing. For me, Thanksgiving is all about the side dishes. Who cares about turkey and ham? Not me! I want stuffing, corn casserole, sweet potatoes, macaroni and cheese and cranberry sauce.
Jeni's Splendid ice cream! Holy moly, if you like ice cream, you MUST try Jeni's. I consider myself quite the ice cream aficionado and this is simply the most amazing, glorious ice cream experience you will ever have. Last April when I was in Columbus, OH for the RT convention we went to the North Market. My bff Lindsey had told me about Jeni's at this location and I had to try the goat cheese and roasted cherry. Oh. My. Goodness. I've lusted for it every since. Don't worry if you're not in Ohio. You can order online for home delivery and some (smart) health food stores are starting to carry Jeni's. Check their site for a location near you. You'll thank me later.
Tell me, what are you obsessed with lately?
