Re: Obesssions?

My most obvious and enduring obsession would be with food/cooking. I recently sorted the books in my room and put two rows of cookbooks up on the shelves together before realising that I had left a large number of them in one of the crates in the cellar. I do own some cookbooks which I haven't cooked from, but I have only bought three for myself that I have yet to use. Most of the time though, I enjoy adapting recipies. When my Mum rings me at uni, the first thing I tell her is everything I have eaten since we last spoke, and when she's trying to calm me down she asks me what I'll be eating tommorow.

I have also liked cuddly toys my whole life. I don't think that's too unusual, but apparently I like them far too much for a 20 year old. I like the soft texture, particularly of the more modern fury fabrics. There are a lot of specifications I have for cuddly toys, but I still manage to acumulate ones that fit the criteria. My boyfriend says that he always knows when I'm upset because I'll "talk through" my cuddly toys (ie, I'll make the one I'm holding do gestures to express how I'm feeling). I remember the names of all of mine, and how I got them, and feel like they have personalities. I recently got rid of all the toys I haven't "bonded" with, and I still have more than anyone else I know.

I get transitional "obsessions" too. The most notable being a preocupation with robots when I was quite a lot younger (it lasted about 3 years). When I was little I sometimes decided to learn all the breeds and features and care instructions of a particular kind of animal. Other kids used to say they loved dogs, horses, hamsters, or whatever and what they meant was that they wanted one or liked playing with them, wheras I was more interested in them in a theoretical sense. Currently, I spend far to much time thinking about knitting.

I think one of the reasons I have such poor general knowlage is that, while I wouldn't say I was obsessed with all my hobbies, when I like something I tend to like it a lot and if I can't happily spend hours and hours thinking about or doing something for days on end I generally don't count it as interesting at all.

my obsessions at them moment are how people dress, their personal style. What do you call their style, they may have a mix of styles, for instance punk and Boho chic. Im really into fashion, how clothes are made. Also what I find fascinating is how people's genetic features relate to eachother so if a kid has his mum's nose, or mouth. In addition how a parent's relationship is with their child, with others, peoples' charater. I find it fascinating how people put on make up, what their personalities are by the apperance lol how weird am i :?: :oops: :roll: :lol:

I have started to get a obsession with prime numbers..

499 is a prime number and the 499th prime is 3559. The 500th prime number is 3571.

The 60th prime number is 281.

My favourite prime number is 233.
it is a full repented prime, irregular prime, triplet prime(227 &229), cousin prime(229), sophie germain prime (2p+1=a) chen prime (p+2=a), fibonacci prime(the 13th numer in the fibonacci sequence) Einstein prime(z=3n-1).

and I know the prime numbers up to about 60. And a few numbers after that.

So that was just by memory. :D

I'm so hooked up at floral dresses or anything that has floral prints on it. I know it may sounds so girly or throw back but for some reason I don find them so cute. If you've seen my closet its like 75% of it are tees, blouse, tops or shorts, skirts that has floral prints. I even have shoes that are floral too.

I go through phases of that. One time, I laboriously copied my list of Facebook friends onto A4 paper. I also like categorising them into male, female, age etc. Yes I'm strange!
