For those who might not already know this, I am kind of an obsessive person. And I mean only slightly less obsessive than your crazy college friend who would beg you to ride shotgun with her so that she could drive by her ex-boyfriend's place to see what he was up to two weeks after their latest split. I'm married, so I gave up the stalking thing years ago!
But, I would say that when I get an idea or discover something new that I want, I truly "dedicate" myself to the effort...
Like when I see a new shade of lipstick or nail polish in a magazine ad and I just have to find it...or when I decide that I must watch every episode of a cancelled TV show currently in reruns...or whenever my favorite cosmetic company announces its seasonal bonuses and I make special trips to the various department stores in order to collect the different makeup bags and *free* goodies...or whenever I buy all of the discontinued bottles of my favorite body wash from Marshall's...or when I learn about a company's bad corporate practices and forbid the husband from buying their products...or when I find myself killing time in an independent bookstore...
My latest obsession is a project intended to promote this blog. Mind you, I am not obsessed with the blog itself (despite what you might think of last week's series), because it is not as if I have been staying up to the wee hours of the morning actually blogging (ok maybe last week). On the contrary, I have been working day and night to assemble a lot of random information that I hope to start sharing via Twitter.
Yes, Twitter, where most of what people share is about as useful as this stuff here.
Of course when you filter out the random stuff, Twitter is the go to source for up-to-the-minute information. In addition to serving as a quick venue for me to spout off about whatever is on my mind at the moment such as a particularly interesting observation about celebrating birthdays at Red Lobster or the hippies at the Folklife Festival yesterday, I tend to use it for telling people stuff and that happens to be another one of my obsessions--wannabe information guru to the masses.
(You were right Dr. W, I probably should have been a journalist, but I did teach for a stint, so does that count?)
Anyhoo, in the next few days, be on the lookout for more random information courtesy of the Busy Black Woman. If you are not already doing so, please follow me on Twitter @busyblackwoman
