What a word! Talk about truth in advertising. Is it just me (and quite surely it could be), but isn't blogging a bit obsessive? I think all week about what I'll do for the Scavenger hunt. If I have time, I check my email throughout the day to see if anyone has commented on anything. I talk about blogging when I'm not blogging. Shessh, I've got to find a new interest.
This first photo is a fragrance by Calvin Klein. The first Calvin Klein fragrance was Obsession. I have worn Klein fragrances since then. My latest Klein fragrance is Secret Obsession. It smells like Obsession with a hint of Hawai'i - perhaps ginger.
What about America's obsession with stuff? We gotta have more stuff. Even in this economic climate, advertisers are still calling out to us - you gotta have our stuff!
This is a print ad for Fry's. I have only been there once and swore I would never go again. When I was there I bought a load o' crap, including a tiny live fish in a tiny fish tank for my office (back when I had one). The fish died right away. The printer and the home theater sound system are still in operation, though.
The next picture has to do with crafting. I don't do anything half way - so here is a bag of yarn - one of those big bags they give you when you have purchased a load o' crap - full of yarn and strips of knitting that I am making into a blanket. I don't know who I am going to give it to, but I like giving people things I have made. It's like a legacy.
And scrap booking - OMG - what can be more obsessive than scrap booking ? - Again this is all about me - I am sure there are others who can scrapbook without obsession (actually, not really - but what do I know? I look at and process everything through my own brain - so I am allowing for system mistakes and saying - oh yeah, there are those who can scrapbook without being obsessive).
I have shared this picture before, but am sharing it again because it is a good example of a combination of two obsessions - paper and material. I covered Joe-Ash's scrapbook - which contains within lots of paper - with material. In this photo you will also see a tablecloth and napkin that I made with material that I purchased. (JoAnn's is my new Fry's)
Okay - I am a purchasing junkie - this I see clearly now, thank you Ananda Girl. Looking back on all that time we spent at the mall buying books and albums, I should have known.....
Now I have to get obsessive about moderation (and fitness and writing).
Thanks for the new objective!
Happy Scavenger Hunt to you. I can't wait until our next obsessive outing!
