Last thing you got a bit obsessed about

What’s the last thing you got obsessed about for a bit?

Could be buying a new appliance so you’ve read hundreds of reviews, gone deep into niche forums to get the inside scoop and basically just let a relatively mundane choice affect your life for a few days/weeks?

Or obsessed about a film so you need to know everything about it.

That kind of thing.

I more or less only get into things obsessively. I don’t know how to like things only a little bit.

So probably making imaginary money in my spaceship simulator computer game of choice. Or a card game called Star Wars Destiny. Or how the meta has shifted due to new cards coming out for my favourite card game. Or

Bought an aeropress yesterday

Had 7 cups of coffee

Couldn’t sleep


Learning Spanish. This January I signed up for a class to spruce up my rusty travel Spanish/get out of the house on a Monday night, and now I find myself obsessed. I’m downloading podcasts, struggling though El Pais articles and eating chorizo every chance I get. In fact I’m so obsessed, I might start a new thread on DiS!

Is Chorizo a well know aid in learning languages?

Should have wrote “drinking San Miguel”, which is.


oh, I’m bad at this.

When about to buy a tv, I remember looking at the balance sheet of Richer Sounds to see if they would be around long enough to be able to honour it.

Other times, I don’t care though. I do have a Warren Evans mattress that did have a ten-year guarantee until the company folded a couple of weeks ago.

About to become a first-time car owner this weekend. The amount of youtube videos I watch is incomprehensible and the reason unfathomable.

I’m eating more of those Walkers Max Strong crisps than I should


Came here to say buying a new car. Signed up to Carwow, the spreadsheet I made for that is one of the most tragic things I’ve ever done (would the cost if collecting a car from Preston be offset by spending £4 a month less over 4 years? Decisions decisions…).


A girl, because I’m an idiot.


Yep, I identify with this.

Car finance is screaming out for some tidy excel work. Do something similar with mobile phones too


A boy, because I’m an idiot

Bloody hell, I hadn’t heard about Warren Evans going under.

Ohhhh long boring story alert: I LOVE warren evans beds, and there was a bed in particular that I wanted, and it had been half price in the sale but when I went to buy it the sale was over, and my friend (who is a WE devotee) told me to just keep checking as they are always having sales thoughout the year, so I checked back every week, and then one week about 4 months down the line, there it was in all its glory with 40% off, and that was good enough for me. Went through the whole process of the online purchase only to discover at the checkout/ delivery stage that they don’t deliver to fucking scotland innit.


We are still sleeping on a broken bed rn cos I can’t bring myself to look at others :joy::rofl:

At the moment I’m obsessed with Zelda and running.

Everything that I do, really. It’s one of the reasons why I deliberately keep my distance on certain things because I know that they will become all consuming.

This past month I have been looking into PC monitors, so if you want to ask me anything about G-Sync PC monitors, feel free.

What does the g stand for?
