Back from Mars

I have sort of an obsessive personality.
I don't obsess about everything. Sometimes the thing I'm obsessing over is good, and sometimes it is bad. There is really no rhyme or reason. For instance, I can see a movie like Inception and think "that was a really good movie" and that's the end of it. But I can see a terrible movie like the most recent version of The Stepford Wives and I can't get it out of my mind. It is a little maddening.
This tendency of mine doesn't just apply to movies. I can get hooked on music, hobbies, or just about anything. If I start reading a book, no matter if it is good or bad, I need to finish it, and quickly. It is a curse, really.
I don't watch much television. I usually tune in to a show via hulu.com after it has been out for a while. Sometimes the show has already been cancelled, which was the case for my latest foray into a little program called Veronica Mars.
Somehow that show got its hooks into my brain. I know what I have to do when this happens. I just need to get it over with as soon as possible. I need to watch it all and get it out of my system. It is a good thing there were only three seasons. Of course, now that I've seen all they made, I'm a little sad that they left it hanging like that, but I suppose they couldn't help getting cancelled.

I just left Veronica Mars on all the time for a couple days. I missed a lot of what was going on in the second and third seasons, because you know... I had children to care for. But I got the gist and I didn't miss the important stuff. Whew! Anyway, I can come back to reality and live my normal life now. I hope I get obsessed with cleaning soon.

Never heard of it. But the main girl looks like the girl in the movie "When in Rome" which I thought was cute.
P.S. I got Lori to start her blog! Not sure if you noticed it on my blog list.

Hey Jamie...this is Caytlin (Payne). I stalked you from Tracy's blog and HAD to comment because I totally just got hooked on this on my Netflix!! I'm still trying to finish season 3 but took a hiatus after a lot of pestering from my husband. I watched seasons 1 and 2 all in about a week. I'm so glad someone else got hooked on it too :) And Tracy, it is the girl from "When in Rome", just a few years back.

Caytlin, thanks for stalking me. Seriously. I like stalkers.
Emily, totally worth it. I really liked it. Watching that show felt like reading a good book to me.
