Current Obsession Meme

I haven't done a meme in awhile so I thought I would cop out and do one today. I'm too tired to think about a real post!

About the meme:
Answer the Current Obsession category and then explain WHY you chose that response. Easy enough? Thanks as always for playing!

Book: Eat, Pray, Love- and it's not an obsession in a good way. I'm just trying to get it done and over with. I'll say no more since it's the book of the month for our virtual bookclub!

Snack: Inside Out Junior Mints- white on the outside and chocolate on the inside and just delicious!

Restaurant: Applebees. I LOVE their food and I never seem to tire of it, probably because when I lived in the Wild West, the nearest was 3 hours away so I ate there about 3 times in 3 years. Now I can go anytime since it's 20 minutes- and I DO! Man, do I want their wings right now!

Beverage: coffee. I don't care how I have it as long as I do. It's been so cold I use it to warm me up. I've been so tired I use it to perk me up!

Decor: Shoes. See title of blog to understand the obsession

Actor: Johnny Depp- need I really say more?

Actress: Amy Adams. She is my current obsession. I have just found her delightful on the silver screen of late so I'm trying to watch everything she's been in!

Movie: I don't a movie obsession. I obsess about keeping track of the movies I watch- does that count?

TV show: House. I. LOVE. this. show. It's smart and funny and crazy, which reminds me!

Hobby: Knitting. Yeah, I've been learning to loom knit. I can't believe it either.

Band: Bon Jovi, and no I don't think their album The Circle is the worst one of 2009! I've been a fan of this 80s hairband since they debuted when I was in high school in the late 80s. Ha!

Song: "Hey Soul Sister" No, this is by Train, not Bon Jovi, but I completely dig this song! I even set it as a ring tone on my phone when my GFs call!

Meme: This one because I'm filling this one out... (this question just has a "duh" sort of quality to it.)

Blog: I refuse to pick one that I obsess over because I have about 10 that I read every day no matter what. So, of late, I have a new blog that I've added to my rotation that I really enjoy that I'll mention here because you should all go read her since she's creative and funny and artistic and smart: A work in progress. Go ahead, click her now. All you're doing is reading my dumb meme!

Lover: not applicable. I have none. Though I have email crush on someone...!

Friend: I love all my friends and consider myself blessed to have so many at this time in my life. I think I must have gotten nicer/better with age because I have more friends now than I have in my entire life. So hats off to my real life friends who I appreciate more than they could ever know: Curley, Lilith, Gulo, XRayGirl, Patti, DNice, LBO, Farrago, Kelly, Honey, Ian, and Jas. I also want to give a huge shout out to my friends in bloggerland that are a supportive system of friends who give good advice, give good comments, and who give good email! Thank you all and I appreciate you all, too: Finn, Bragger, Wiley, Evil Pixie, TyAnna, Julie, Cheryl, The Prodigals, Lemon, and Shan!

Quote: "Well behaved women rarely make history." ~ Laural Thatcher Ulrich. It's true.

Peeve: Whining students. Again, need I say more?

Sport: none, though with the Olympics coming up I'll get all crazy over ice skating.

Singer: Michael Buble. I got his new CD for Christmas and I just can't get enough!

Thanks to Sunday Stealing and Minnesota Mom for this meme!


Curley said...

Sorry if you haven't heard, Michael Buble just got engaged. Oh well, you can still listen to his music and drool. Love ya.

Maggie said...

Curley- I heard--- oh well! I can still listen and drool like you said! And though he is a hottie, I admire his musical talents, his voice, and his style SO much more than his looks. Hmmmm, I sound so grown up. Gee, I'm old.

Bragger said...

Michael Buble makes my teeth sweat.

But Billy Joel is still the only one Hubby has to fear.....

Shan said...

I find Michael Buble terribly sexy! When I saw him perform on American Idol a couple years ago, I was like YOWZA.

Oh, and you almost got me with the "go ahead and click over there now" bit. (That may not have been an exact quote). I suffer from ADD enough to obey and click and then forget how I got there in the first place.

Then you mentioned little ole me in your blogger list so you know each of us eats that up. :)

Ok, off to see the new blog sensation! Byee

Cheryl said...

Inside out Junior Mints? Is this new?

Applebees - my local one has $1 sliders and $2 beers. I've ben there a lot lately.

Coffee- sadly, I can;t have this blessed brew any more. My body doesn't seem to like it. Oh well. At least I can still drink hot chocolate.

Decor- I so agree!!! I have been obsessed with shoes lately.

Hobby - I've always wanted to knit. Though I suspect I probably never will.

Blog - Thanks, Maggie!! :)

Friends - you're so lucky. So many of mine seem to be going through some kind of depression or another. Not all thank God, though.

Quote - makes me feel better. I hate doing what others tell me to do.

Maggie said...

Bragger- makes your teeth sweat???? OMG- too funny!

Shan- *kisses* to you! (We are such comment whores!)

Cheryl- $1 Sliders???? Gimme some of those!!! Please!

Cheryl said...

Hi Maggie, of course! All suggestions welcome. It's that heavy, judgmental energy I'm allergic to right now, not genuine support. :)

Maggie said...

Cheryl- I left a long comment with suggestions over at your place.

And thank so much for being open enough to at least hear me out, even if I don't know what I'm talking about since I don't know what you're looking for... I appreciate you openness!
