Meet the readers

What are your obsessions? I have several things that fascinate me beyond reason:

1. Megacryometeors
2. MRSA, which might make sense because staph came close to killing me when I was 16.
3. Aung San Suu Kyi, who is a heroine

What are yours?

Books would be the first and major obsession.

Ideas. It's like searching for the Holy Grail. I'm fascinated by anything having to do with cultural anthropology, metaphysics, spirituality and new physics.

Learning. I'm disappointed if I don't learn something about something each day. That's probably why I read so many blogs, books, magazines, newspapers and anything else in print.

Right now? Politics. I can't wait for this election to be over so I can stop obsessing over it.

I'm always obsessed with news. I have that urge to know everything, so I follow everything I can.

(And MRSA is a good obsession. You wouldn't believe how fast it's spreading in hospitals. Ugh.)

I just wrote about accents yesterday - the written ones, not the sounds. I'm a little obsessed with them lately.

That, and tiramisu.

Kristin said...

The Election.

That's it.

Ask this question again on 11/5 & my answer will either be sunny and varied or will involve Canadian real estate.

My mom was diagnosed with MRSA in the hospital. So, in the next hospital, we had to suit up with gloves and gowns and everything to visit her. And she was guaranteed a private room. But in the extended care place, no one paid any attention to it. No gowns, roomie, the whole thing. Crazy, huh?
