Subject: What have you been "obsessed" with over the years?

Written By: Marty McFly on 11/18/05 at 6:36 am

I think it's safe to say there's something entertainment related that we've always been kinda into, almost a little too much, some might say!

2004 - Nothing really...
2005 - InThe00s, Lost

Naw, Poke'mon's cool!


It was just overdone and the show sucked.


I remember being 10 and I had slept at my nana's the night before the show was to premier on CITV. I got up that morning at about 6am just to make sure I didn't miss it  ;D

Once i'd seen the show, that was it, I was off! Well, until age 11 1/2ish, when it became 'uncool'  ::)

But I had a few of the games and I was actually quite good, don'tcha know?  ;D

RIP Pokemon  ::) :P

I went to TJ Maxx Home Goods the other day and bought some cool vases and a small chest to go on top of my kitchen cabinets.  Oh, and a framed mirror to replace the mirror in the guest bath.  You can get some really good deals at that place and the store were I live has tons of stuff and it is a very clean store (which makes me very happy).

I couldn't believe it... last night, when I came home from work I was going through some old stuff in the spare room cupboard, trying to find my old DT revision guide, when I came to an old shoebox. Thinking 'Oh, what could this be?', I opened it, and would you ever - there was my old Game Boy Color! - With my old Pokemon game still inserted!  :D
So, I played it for a while and it felt kinda nice, you know, reminded me of when I was a little kid and I used to play on it 24/7  :)
