Sunday Stealing: The Current Obsessions Meme

Welcome back to Sunday Stealing: originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser:

"Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we also have our rules. First, we always credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's post. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") We do sometimes edit the original meme, usually to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, sometimes to select that meme's best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from either this new meme or recently asked questions from a prior featured meme. Let's go!"

Today we
ripped this meme off a blogger and blog named Minnestota Mom. We stole one of our first memes from her after we started this blog. That was back on September 7, 2008. The big difference is the Minnesota Mom actually wrote this meme! She tells us about herself: "My passions are reading, art in its many forms, and health. And I love cookies. Lots of cookies. Does that go with health? Probably not. But I loves ‘em anyway…" (We did add some questions to fit our format length.) Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Instructions: Answer the Current Obsession category and then explain WHY you chose that response. Easy enough? Thanks as always for playing!

Sunday Stealing: The Current Obsessions Meme

Book: Not one specific book - but my favorite kind has to be medical thrillers. It takes my two passions, medicine and getting the "bad guy" and rolls them into one nice little package.

Snack: Chocolate! It is creamy, warm, gooey, delicious, and releases endorphins which make the pleasure sensors of the brain react - the perfect food!

Restaurant: Imperium Wine Room: It is a really nice, small place here in Celebration, FL that has the BEST flatbread, pannini sandwiches and tomato basil soup, plus a HUGE selection of wines from all over. My favorite is a Carmenere Reserve from Chili.... mmmmm!

Beverage: Water... Boring, I know, sorry! But it is really what I drink the most of, I love the taste of Aquafina, it is my favorite. There is nothing the quenches the thirst like ice cold water on a hot day, and nothing that will help me swallow my medication easily like a glass of water. I will drink water at any temperature, even when it has been sitting in the car all day and is hot -- I don't care, as long as it is wet!!

Decor: Leather, marble, lots of photos, paintings, and it has to be comfortable! Plus every room in my house has something Disney in it - I am the world's biggest Disney fan, especially Mickey Mouse, he is my hero!!

Actor: Jimmy Stewart... he was a magnificent actor and a true American patriot. My favorite movie of all time is "It's a Wonderful Life". He is "everyman".

Actress: Sandra Bullock... I like (almost) every movie she has been in, and every interview I have seen her in, she seems like such a sweet, down-to-earth person. Plus all the actors and actresses she has ever worked with have said that she is just as sweet in real life as she appears on screen. She looks like a person I could sit down and have coffee with, I'd LOVE to meet her in real life!

Movie: While I mentioned another movie above, currently I am in awe of the movie "Avatar" in Digital 3-D. It is SO totally awesome! If you haven't seen it in 3-D, you REALLY have to go see it. The special effects are so cool, that at one point, I was actually trying to brush something away from my face - I didn't even realize I was doing it until Bill turned to me and pushed my hands down and laughed at me. Plus the 3-D glasses have come a LONG way... they aren't cardboard and crappy, they are like real sunglasses, and pretty comfy. Not to mention the whole story - while there is a social & moral aspect to it, it is not shoved down your throat. I went through every emotion while watching it, and I cannot wait to own it when it comes out on BluRay... Plus I sure hope I can afford one of those 3-D TV's when they come out!!

TV show: House -- He is just funny, irreverent, irritating, smart, smartass, vulnerable, adorable, and sexy enough to make me want to watch him solve the medical mysteries. Plus, sometimes, I am able to solve them before him... much to the amazement of my hubby!

Hobby: I have two right how - Photography is my primary obsession because I love to find a moment in time and keep it for all eternity. I also love animals, flowers and the beauty all around us and want to learn how to capture that and save in my other obsessive hobby: scrapbookking! I have learned how to express myself more creatively with color and writing over the last couple of years with the encouragement of my husband and children. I didn't get that encouragement growing up, and now I find that I really enjoy it.

Lover: Of course it is my husband Bill... he is sweet, thoughtful, gentle and really cares about me. Need I say more???

Friend: (I have a lot of friends, but as for an obsession) Again, it would have to be Bill, for the very same reasons as above!

Quote: "If I have to choose between loving you, and breathing. I would use my last breath to say I LOVE YOU." (Anonymous) Reason ~ Just look at the answers to the above two categories, Bill is my LIFE!!

Peeve: WAY too many, but if I have to pick one, it would have to be people who are mean to children and animals. That is just WRONG!!

Sport: Football - it's really the only one I can understand and that doesn't take too long. (I know, that's a really crappy reason, but I'm trying to be honest.) Besides, the guys look really cute in those tight pants! :-)

Singer: Elvis, forever!!! I don't REALLY need to explain, do I?
So, that brings us to the close of another Sunday Stealing. And yes, I skipped a couple of the categories because I don't really have an obsession where they are concerned. Now don't forget to visit the other participants of this meme, I'm sure there are lots of great answers... see you next week.
Hope you enjoyed this weeks, it took a lot of thought.
Hope you had a great weekend, and have a fabulous week
Until next time..... Lorie

The words about your husband are just the sweetest!

Is there really a difference in taste between various bottled waters? I've never noticed that!

I love the disney decor they sell at the parks. I have thought about getting a few things to blend in with what I have. Kind of like the hidden Mickey heads.
