I’ve been tagged!

Oh boy oh boy oh boy — my first tagging! Thanks to the lovely Brandi over at Silver Pencils for thinking of little ol’ Claremont Road as a fabulous blog.

Rules of the tag: List 5 Obsessions/Addictions that you have, and tag back to the person(s) that gave you the award. Post the rules and tag an additional 5 people.

1. I am completely addicted to my staple snack: Triscuits and whipped cream cheese (Philadelphia brand, of course). It’s actually a little dangerous…. I’ll get out the respective packages and a little knife and set up a nice little spot on the coffee table for my snack, and ten minutes later, it’s like the Triscuit bandit has made away with all of the crackers. I devour them and don’t even realize it. There have been many nights where this snack has become my dinner. It’s a little pathetic.

2. I LOVE celebrity gossip. So far I haven’t talked about it much on this blog, but don’t be fooled: People.com is like the mother ship calling me home. When I have to explain my love of celebrity gossip to someone who just doesn’t get it, it usually comes down to this: the screwed up, wacky lives of celebrities make me feel normal. I do draw the line at the crazy tabloids that obviously report false “news” (InTouch, Star, etc.), and I don’t really follow Perez Hilton because he’s just a little too mean for me, but give me the lowdown on so-and-so’s divorce proceedings or whatshername’s big family drama, and I feel a little bit better about my average Jane life.

3. I have been married for four months and I still read Weddingbee daily (okay, okay… several times a day). I can’t help it. It’s like I’m deserting an old friend if I leave! There’s just something about the community, diversity, and openness of the ladies there that keeps me wanting more.

4. This is more of a past obsession, but I used to be absolutely hooked on Friends. When the show first started, I was a freshman in high school, and I was immediately obsessed. I used to tape it every single week (yes, with a VCR) and when I went away to college my mom would tape it for me every week so I could catch up when I came home (I pretty much lived at the design studio in college and wasn’t in my dorm to watch it). Even though I now own all of the seasons on DVD, it was still a little sad to finally throw away all of the VHS tapes a few years ago. I still love watching Friends anytime I catch it in syndication, and I quote it constantly.

5. I love potatoes in all forms. I do not discriminate against any potato. If you are a potato and you are ready to be eaten, I will eat you. Damnit, now I want a potato.

Now I tag:

  1. Hehehe! My husband and I quote Friends all the time too. We were just talking about some silly thing the other day where someone we knew was unprepared for something they had known about for a while and both of us said “This isn’t out of the blue! This is smack dab in the middle of the blue!” to them on seperate occasions. We are such dorks.

  2. oh my gosh I’m watching FRIENDS right now! Totally with you on that! Thanks for playing along :)
