I'm into it!

I was browsing over at Studio JRU and she had a post that linked to Hope Studios. They were talking about their current favorites. I hesitate to call them obsessions since I decided to join in on the fun. I'll let you decide.

I know dear reader that you crave every bit of random trivia that I can come up with, so to satisfy your appetite here you go . . .

Right now, I am into

Swiss cheese. I have no idea why. I hated Swiss cheese when I was a kid. And it kinda smells funny. My chickadees loathe it and were a bit piqued with me when I "tricked" them into eating it. (We had what I called turkey gobbler sandwiches: whole wheat bread with sliced turkey, lettuce and cranberry sauce slathered on swiss cheese. Yum.) And forget about putting any other kind of cheese on your tuna melt or hot ham and cheese sandwich. Swiss is it, my friend.

Settlers of Catan. If you aren't familiar with this game, boy are you missing out. I cannot do justice to the game by trying to describe it in a few sentences. The short of it is that each player tries to be the first to earn a total of 10 points by building roads, building an army and/or putting down settlements and cities. Even my eight year old understands it and does very very well.

Peanut Butter M&Ms. It may shock some of you to find out that my love for peanut butter m&Ms has eclipsed my love for regular M&Ms and Snickers, even Twix. I know, I know, it is practically sacrilegious to admit such a thing, but there you have it. And I am not ashamed to admit it.

And no obsession favorite list of mine would be complete if I didn't mention LOST

I am trying very hard to not post about LOST each and every Wed afternoon. I know some of you do not fully appreciate, or dare I say even like, this show. So I try to keep that in mind when all I want to do is blather on and on about the greatest series ever. EVER. I only have one question for those of you who aren't into LOST: What, in heaven's name, is wrong with you?

Wanna share what you're into?


  1. I LOVE turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce, might have to try it toasted with melted Swiss, oh yum. Also, just finished my Peanut M&M's, now I'm going to have to refill the bowl with the Peanut Butter, oh candy, how I love thee, lol.

  2. Some of my good friends are into Settler of Catan. I would like to learn how to play...I hear it's really fun. Have you tried the new coconut M&Ms? They are pretty tasty too!

  3. I love swiss cheese, too! I usually try to keep it on hand so I can whip up a quiche, but now I'm going to have to try melted on a turkey/cranberry sandwich...yum. The peanut butter m&m's? Yes, please! I will have to check out that game, youngest is getting into games as of late and I am always on the lookout for a good one. Great list!

  4. Yum...turkey sandwiches. I never think of putting cranberry on unless it's around thanksgiving. Do you like avocado - so good with turkey too. I love dark chocolate m&m's and LOST rules. I am going to read your posts now. I like to find other theories.

  5. LOVE swiss cheese ~ Especially on a turkey and avocado sandwich :)

  6. I'm into the Olympics. And Apolo. Or, I was. Now, I'll have to be into the laundry and the grocery shopping. Cuz I was waaaaay too into the Olympics. And Apolo. Waaaaay.

    Middle ground and balance is for sissies.

  7. Wasn't this such a FUN link party?! So glad you joined in too! :)

  8. I always get the peanut butter m&m eggs at Easter time, love those things. And I'm a big ol' Lost fanatic, too :)
