Three obsessions from Him:
Andrew Bird. Do you know anyone who can play violin, glockenspiel, guitar, whistle, and sing ALL AT THE SAME TIME? His new album Armchair Apocrypha has been on repeat on my iPod, iTunes, and CD player since I bought it a few weeks ago. We’ve seen him live a half-dozen times and he never ceases to amaze. Instead of just telling you about it, see one of his live shows yourself here and prepared to be amazed. Seriously. Go. GO NOW.
Civilization 3. Who needs newer, expensive games like World of Warcraft when you can nab a copy of Civilization 3 Complete on ebay for $15. Why bother trying to conquer the personal finance world when I can be the ruler of my own civilization? Sheesh.
Running. I hate it. I hate it so much that I keep doing it to try and not hate it. I’m hate it so much that I decided to train for a half-marathon in the fall. I hate that it has resulted in me losing 30 pounds when everything else failed. I hate running but I still do it four times a week. HATE. OBSESSED.
…and two from Her:
I am obsessed with wedding planning! We have lots of time to plan which correlates into lots of fun and very little stress. I scan Craigslist obsessively for second-hand wedding bargains (my latest acquisition is a crinoline for under $10). I check the registry and the guest list daily. Unhealthy, I know, but super happy good fun time!
I am also currently obsessed with my new contact lenses. I am a brand new contact lens wearer and am spending lots of time adjusting to them. I am still in “training” so I am working on getting them in and out daily without blinding myself. It takes me a long time to get them in, then I obsess over whether they are still correctly positioned, then I obsess over the fact that I will have to take them out again later. Rinse in saline and repeat. Hopefully this will all be second nature by next month, so I can move on to a more fun obsession.
I guess we’re now supposed to tag five other people to join in on the fun. Here goes…
Tired But Happy
…last but not least, the other debt ridden couple at We’re in Debt.
