Guest Blogger for today:
My roommate, Natasha...Tashies for those who love her!
Tashies' blog is The Sarcastic Spy.
Read below for what happens when I ask her to blog about her obsession...
It is currently 11:26pm on a Tuesday night. If I go to sleep now, when I awake it'll be time for work. I don't want that, so I'm doing my best to prolong my night in hopes of work NEVER arriving. TRUTH: I'm gonna be dead tired and hate my decision.
With that said I am excited [actually really nervous, what if this post is a total bust!!] for this grand opportunity to GUEST BLOG!
Possession, they rhyme in time with thyme.
Obsession, for men by Calvin Klein. [does anyone wear that??? most cologne and perfume seem to all smell the same. Actually the ones at Bath&Body Works smell fairly different, but not much different that Vicky Secret's.]
Obsession......it is a noun and according to dictionary.com it's meaning is: the domination of one's thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image, desire, etc.
*SIGH* Welcome to my mini thought process. I was never good at brainstorming in school. I would always trail off, and by the time I zoned back into what my group was talking about they'd already have all these amazing ideas. Oh, and if my bunny trails were twisty enough, I'd zone back in with my tasks already delegated to me! Sometimes this was a good thing, but mostly negative.
Ok. OBSESSION. I want to come off good. I am Mary's roommie. Ok, I can come off artsy and talk about my LOVE for Picasso! Especially his blue period! I've been to Paris twice and saw his home there that has been turned into a museum. My 2nd visit the museum was closed for renovation. WOMP WOMP :( :( :( [that's right! TRIPLE frowny face emoticons. I mean business!]
I can talk about my ADMIRATION for phat cars! I love a sleek Jaguar...my heart literally skips a beat when I see one ride by. My new favorite car is a Rolls Royce. Those are classy and I feel like it speaks volumes of the owner! I mean come on...each one is made by hand, and do you know that the hood ornament retracts!!!! This makes me come off as a car girl...Hmm...I did refill the windshield washer fluid today IN my dress! You know...I'm the sexy, dress wearing car girl who's ok w/ a little grease. Did I mention I'm single, 27, and I actually do enjoy long walks on the beach??? Oh, and if you're cute enough I'll let you think you're the funny one in the relationship!
How about my expensive habit of travel? I just arrived home from country #14. I've only been to 14 different countries, but I try to travel as much as I can. I try to not spend too much $$$ while here so I can afford my trips...so don't go thinking I'm rich or inherited some secret family monies.
Where have I been? Glad you asked:
Canada, Mexico, Guyana, Barbados (#14), England, France, Germany, Japan (#13) India, AFRICA: Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. I've also traveled a little throughout the States.
I love it because I love interacting with the locals and understanding their life perspective from their culture. From their hemisphere. It is always different, and I feel like it helps shape me too. I am also trying to travel as much as I can because I don't know how much time I have on this planet. I could die tomorrow, and I don't want regrets. ALSO...who knows what life is going to be heaven side. What are the countries gonna be? How far apart will they be? Pangea anyone?? What is the culture going to be? What about the people? Languages? FOODS? Souvenirs? Do I get to bargan and flirt for cheaper prices? Will I get to travel? Will I want to travel? I love who I am when I travel. I feel more like myself, and I like feeling like myself. I am also challenged to get out of my comfort zone. I would rather stay in my hotel and hide for fear of not meeting people and having to eat alone. YET, because I made myself go outside of my hotel I met new people and have excellent stories for my life so far.
WOW...I need a new paragraph...I can go on FOREVER about travel. I think my wanderlust life will be labeled as PASSION over OBSESSION.
OBSESSIONS: excellent music, elephants, travel narrative books, Condoleeza Rice. (Her latest book is marvelous and I had a dream, last night, that she was at my party and I started flipping out!! I may try and be her for Hween.) Pictures that make your heart beat with fervor, world news, the Today Show - yummy Matt Lauer! Cholula on my lunch, God should be in here but we're working on our relationship...but I'm hoping soon to say His name with true affection. Earrings...the bigger, the goddier, the better. Scarves...the latest trend and I likes it. DRESSES...if I can avoid pants I'm game! I mean...hello...portable AC.
OBSESSIONS...*SIGH* I have no clue what to pick.
