Okay Ladies and Gents, this is the first in what will be an ongoing series of posts called Three:Thirty Thursdays. I will post a new “episode” every Thursday at 3:30pm and the theme will always be different. I was indirectly inspired by good friend Derrick for this episode and what better way to start the series than to rant and ramble about my three biggest obsessions.
More specifically, this magnificent creation known as the KitKat is the essence of my entire existence. I’m not entirely sure if the wafers are hand crafted by fairies and blessed by the hands of Saints but mannnn let me tell you.. I cannot resist those heavenly sticks of magic. After indulging and over-indulging in this delicious treat I’m not sure if I need to see a therapist, dietician, or both.
As I pointed out in The S behind the dot, I was most likely Japanese in my past life. 10 out of 10 times I would much rather be doing backstrokes in the vast sea of Japanese animation than to dip my toes in the pool of sitcoms and dramas. I love a good cartoon but there’s nothing like a Kamehameha from Goku or my all-time favorite Rasengan from my main man Naruto. I’d also have no problem snacking on some Gum-Gum fruit like Mr. Money D. Luffy since I can’t really swim anyway. My choice of anime, just like my usual choice of YA novel, revolves around the supernatural which leads me to my third ramble…
All Things Spooky
Now when it comes to this obsession I am a walking conundrum. Vampires? Love em. Werewolves? I wish I had one as a pet. Aliens? What’s poppin playa?! Tim Burton? My main man with a plan. From beautiful fairies to ugly ogres and skinny skeletons, I love everything about the supernatural world. Every novel I read has to do with that sexy alien boy from next door or the glittering idiot of a vampire that I can’t help but love. Now here is where I become the epitome of a contradiction: I hate scary movies and I’m terribly afraid of the dark. I will snuggle up in bed, late in the midnight hours with my Kindle app alive and well on my phone reading about the Minotaur that eats the souls of baby leprechauns but I will make sure that the light of my television or laptop is shining as brightly as possible. SMH. I’ll surely do all in my power to get my hands on that next best monster book while cowering in the corner while it’s movie counterpart flashes across the big screen. #EpicFail. Where’s Dr. Phil when I need him?
What are some of your obsessions? Share them with class kiddies! Comment and share. As always, thanks for stopping by and tune in next week for another episode of Three:Thirty Thursdays!
