Afternoon! All is well in my world, considering it’s a Monday.
OK — by now I’m guessing you’re really, really sick of hearing of my Twilight obsession (I subjected readers to it last fall as well, it’s just been re-triggered by the DVD release), but I downloaded the Twilight Soundtrack this morning and it is so, SO good. Very emo. Very good running music. I really recommend it!
Lunch was delicious and simple:
Rice and pinto beans (3/4 cup of each):
My mouth AND tummy were satisfied after this meal.
Do You Fixate?
The Husband made the observation last week that whenever I get discover something, I become HYPER fixated on that one thing. It could be a food, a particular song, a book, a movie, running, whatever — I’ll find a new song I love and I will listen to it over and over and over again. I get a new DVD and I’ll watch it 3 times in 5 days (uhhh, Twilight!).
I like learning the deep intricacies of a song, a book, a movie. Maybe it’s because I’m a creative person…. or maybe I find comfort in the familiar. But the thing I love most of all is how the familiar offers up surprises when you observe it long enough. There’s more in a movie than what you gleam on a first — or second — watch. A song lyric pops out on the 30th listen that you ignored on the first.
Do you fixate on favorite songs,books, or movies like me? Or do you prefer to dabble a little bit in everything?
I fixate! I will listen to a song nonstop on repeat if I love it, for days and days. And I remember watching Jerry Maguire every day as soon as I came home from school in 8th grade. Haha… And when I love a book I will read every review and piece of information on it I can find.
