Obsessions? My growing collection of ukuleles and to always be able to have a good hat within reach to wear everyday.

Obsessed with reading. I have to read while I eat, so most people think I'm rude. I usually keep a book, and will whip it out to reference something or just out of an impulse. I spend a lot of time in my head, so people think I'm rude and ignoring them.


I have always been fascinated with two things that bother people: military weapons and the occult. Weapons just scare people, and I had to learn that you can't share a conversation about guns, or clean a knife you just brought out of your pocket in front of people, or they will be frightened of you.

Bicycles fed my obsessions in a healthy way until I was cut down by a pickup truck. If I was considered antisocial for being car-free and showing up everywhere sweaty and on a bike, then trying to live like that after a major accident definitely sent the wrong signals to people and I eventually put my bikes up in storage and bought a new car.

I have an obsessive nature, but I also have a fear of being completely ostracized from society. I try to channel my behaviour in a healthy way while still maintaining my eccentric habits, because they please me so.

Here's dark-grey wheels:




I have an obsession about boobies. I married my wife for her boobs. I dream during the night and day about the perfect boobs. I carry imaginary calipers to measure the nipple-spread distance to cup-size ratios on every woman I see. I imagine resizing and reshaping them with various curvatures. I paint them with body-paint and blend them into different outfits. Lots more I obsess about with boobies, but might not OK on this family website...

I think if you could call it so i have an obsession with being different, not in such a way though as to say I'm Better than you though. I have a bit of a fear about people saying "you know, you remind me of _____ exactly" or "you are exactly like _____" *shutter*. I enjoy being a unique soul and a breath of fresh air .

With that i have this totally compulsiveness about the color purple, I always... and i mean ALWAYS have something purple on me no matter were i go and as far as being made fun of i used to wear purple tights under shorts in high school. haha fun thing about that is i only got made fun of by guys all saying that i was a ****.... but all the girls had this attitude of "it takes a real man to wear purple tights"... so of course i went with the girls and continued to wear them XD!

I have ADD. That means not only am I all over the place in meetings, etc., but I also grab ahold of certain things that interest me and hang on a like a dog.

I've a thing about cheap guitars. Not only are they affordable, I have skills to set them up to get every last omph from them. I love to get an old $79 guitar, spend an evening setting it up and making a nice playing axe. Of course some guitars just are beyond recovery. But many are.

Bikes, Same as above. I like old steel. Don't have many, but plan to change that come spring yard sales.

Obsessions of the past: Computers (made a career from that one!), Motorcycles, Tropical Fish, Gardening (every Spring more or less).

i have recently become obsessed with healthy eating. i spend most of my leisure internet time reading and watching videos about healthy food. i hav been berated for my militancy in eating like a monk and refusing to touch a single bit of anything processed or animal based. I've got a videoblog running as we speak.

That's cool, Fast cloud!! Those teacups at the bottom... I had a set of those from my Grandmother from China but they were dropped on the ground in a box that said "Do not handle, owner will transport" during a move.
