Here are the obsessions for this week. Gosh I went from drawing a blank on what my obsession were for this week to coming up with seven. That is just crazy!
#7 "Awesomeness In A Box?"
For years when ever I thought something was awesome I would think "That is awesomeness in a box." I would never actually say that out loud because I thought it was a weird phrase. Especially if something wasn't actually in a box. However, recently I just gave up on thinking it was weird and started using the phrase. I mean it is kind of fun to say. Maybe I'll start a new trend. Probably not though.
#6 Puzzles As Wall Decoration
#5 The Out-Of-Towners (1970)
This movie was on TCM last week when they were showing a bunch of films written by Neil Simon. It is the story of a married couple from a small town who travel to New York so the husband can go to a job interview. Of course everything goes horrible awry for them. Literally EVERYTHING! This movie made me laugh myself to tears! It was so good and so funny. I ended up quoting the movie pretty much every day this week. I need to get this movie.
#4 Downton Abbey Returns!!!
I've could not stop tweeting tweets about my excitement that Downton Abbey Season 5 started this week. I fell in love with this show last year and have been obsessed with it ever since. Everything about it is excellent. The new episode had so much intrigue that it blew my mind. It was... well...awesomeness in a box.
#3 This Hat
I wore this hat I made for the About Me Tag video last week and I have worn it almost every day since. It's just very comfortable and cute. I guess I didn't realize how much I loved it until now.
#2 Echomentary Performance Preparation
My mom and I have spent a year working our sound for our duo group called Echomentary. When we can we like to play at my grandpa's assisted living facility. It's a good way for us to work out our performance kinks and it seems to make everyone there happy. For awhile preparing for this little performance has been an obsession. If we weren't practicing for it we were making detailed set list for it. Our hard work paid off. I think we sang and played better than we ever have. Yay! We are hoping to record some of our songs and make some YouTube videos of our covers soon. We might try to do a test video this week or the beginning of the next week.
#1 Taking Care of My Dog
As I've mentioned my dog hasn't been feeling that well, and much of my focus has been on making sure he is okay. This week he was diagnosed with Cushing's Disease. The good news is that they have a medication they can try to help him. Bad news is that he hates pills. By hate I mean he is so smart he figures out to avoid take them at all costs. I did however figure out how to covertly sneak the pill into his food today. Let's cross our fingers and hope that this still work. I hope it helps him feel a little better eventually.
