I'm addicted to the following things, in no particular order:
  • Potato chips (specifically: salt & vinegar, thai spice)
  • Chips and Salsa
  • Avocados
  • Thai Food
  • American Idol (we will now celebrate the departure of Sanjaya. Yeah!!)
  • Chocolate (dark)
  • Red Wine
  • Crossword puzzles/sudoku (alternately)
  • Listening to music late at night on my iPod when I should be sleeping
  • Procrastination
  • Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies (in season)
  • Rice
  • Smoothies
  • TV Shows that are in danger of being cancelled or that networks just stop showing (Love Monkey, Studio 60, Men in Trees)
  • All of your blogs (you know who you are!!)
  • Gossip (my new fave: Jake & Reese!)
  • Imagining myself in really sexy outfits when I'm wearing khakis and tennis shoes (my uniform)
  • Counter-transference
  • Talking about stuff I really don't know about (Judith Butler?)
  • Talking about all the stuff I'm working on when I'm really not doing anything
  • Rewarding myself when I feel bad by eating bad stuff (see Potato Chips)
  • End of the semester pep talks from self and MB ("It's all good! It's almost over!! Good job!!")
  • Imagining dancing while listening to Shakira
  • Protein
  • Cookies
  • Hugs from Son
  • Sunshine
  • Days with no school
  • Saying I will do things that I'm not sure I can actually do (more on this after the 27th)
  • Lists

Yes to Reese and Jake. I happened upon this tidbit and was somehow pleased. Not sure why. I mean, I don't KNOW these people.
Substitute french fries for potato chips!

I could have almost the exact list, especially the part about salt and vinegar chips!! But I also love Margaritas and a few different shows but I am SO THERE re. Sanjaya, FINALLY. Yes, AI has redeemed itself. You make me want to make my own list.

Love your list. I have a similar list and it gets longer round semester end--like I would rather do anything (eat potato chips, watch three episodes of Scrubs in a row, think about baking something, blah blah blah) than the work it will actually take me to finish the semester. Sigh. It's all good! It's almost over!

best list ever. i'm going to incorporate those that are not on my list into my list. except for american idol. i can't get into that show no matter how hard i try. and apparently, i'm giving up capitalization in exchange for something juicy to add to the list. something like barbecueing every night so the kitchen is never dirty again.

I think you should write a story about this. About "addiction" as metaphor. About lists of addictions.

I'm addicted to telling other people what they should write about.

(PS--Men in Trees??? Sorry--I have a problem with She Who Was Mean to Ellen.)
