Is there anything you can’t stop thinking about, listening to, watching, eating, drinking? From a wild enthusiasm for “Glee” and those Snickers Betty White commercials to a 15-year cheddar you can’t stop eating, or a song you’ve got on repeat, obsessions are meant to be your of-the-moment fixation.
“The song ‘Brand New Key’ by Melanie Safka. You may recognize it from its recent debut in that stupid HP ePrint baby traveling across the country commercial. Still, it’s a totally fun song. It had another revival at the Peninsula Arts Association benefit, where Lia Smith, age 8, sang it alongside her mother, Marise Redmann. The song’s an earworm, and you’ll find that with one listen, you’re singing, “I’ve got a brand new pair of roller skates, you’ve got a brand new key.” ~ Brittany Jordt
“I’m secretly obsessed with pickle flavored chips. When I check out at the grocery store, I try to hide the fact that I’m buying them by putting the bag face down. For some reason, that extra crunch with the extra saltiness keeps hitting the spot!” ~ Anonymous

“I have an obsession with Hessians.” ~ Nik Garvoille
“One of my obsessions is snowboarding! That’s the biggest reason other than work as to why I move to Tahoe every winter for the last seven. They are making snow and opening the hill on the 19th and even tho it is only going to be one or two runs with very little snow, I can’t wait! Waiting for the big dump!” ~ Dan Eggert
“I’m obsessed with cats. They’re super cute!” ~ Anonymous
