I am not sure why.. But I have become completely obsessed with and addicted to Zachary Quinto.. :-) He for those of you who don't know is the actor who plays Sylar/Gabriel Gray on Heroes and was the new Spock on the new JJ Abrahms' Star Trek movie. I had watched the first season of Heroes and LOVED it. AN then I got busy and I wasn't able to watch much of the 2nd season as it conflicted with my sleeping schedule.. (it sucks working 3rd shift sometimes.) Then thanks to Comcast and On Demand - I was finally able to start watching it again at my leisure. And found that the changes they have made in Sylar are awesome. I enjoyed watching him before when he just went around killing people- I mean he was a contributing factor in my going to see the new Star Trek... But after watching Sylar on season 4 - i had to know what I had missed up to that point.. I started small with Youtube videos and progressed to obsessing over the need to see Season 3.. I Downloaded and watched all 25 episodes in about 5 days! And then I found out that wasn't enough.. I started joining all the Zachary Quinto sites and forums and of course his Facebook, Myspace and Twitter. Lately I have been reading up on all the interviews that he has done.. This ought to keep me occupied for a couple more days... :-) So what do I like about him.. He's wicked smart, funny, silly, and of course HOT! I am on my 10 day of "research" (as I like to call it). That is why you may not have seen me around mylot too much lately.. So what are you obsessed with or addicted to.. Is it a healthy obsession or a bad one? I am not sure what mine falls under.. I think if it continues for too much longer it might not be good. But I am so enjoying it right now. LOL

yes, now i'm obsessed with chocolate. it has been a while actually, but i still can't manage it well. since everything which is too much isn't good for us, so i guess this one also bad for my health, although a small amount of chocolate everyday is good for health. i think i have to learn to control my choco addiction.

I Love chocolate too- I agree a small amount is good. I have chocolate every day too. I just ate a small piece about 30 minutes ago.. LOL But i have it in many forms.. Chocolate cereal, Chocolate milk, Hot Chocolate., Chocolate chip cookies, Chocolate Ice cream(actually it's the only flavor I eat),AND my favorite BROWNIES! I could live on brownies, I think!!?

oh now - chocolate cereal, milk, hot chocolate or ice cream doesn't cut it for me when I want chocolate. It has to be a cookie, brownie or candy! haha

Well, it's not as satisfying.. as a whole bunch of Hershey kisses or a brownie.. but in a pinch.. I will eat those others and I always add more chocolate syrup to my chocolate ice cream.. JUST BECAUSE!

Yes, I admit I am also obsessed by someone. He isn't a movie star but is just as tantalizing. I saw his pick on a social networking site back towards the end of 2008. He is an ex Marine and a motorcyclist. He lives in Tennessee and is about 57. He likes the cute young things online so I know I have little or no chance at any interest from him. We communicate from time to time and he is always nice.

Well, that can be good. I don't see anything wrong with it.. LOL I actually am a pretty good stalker.. and in the late 80's it got me the guy I was after.. and we then moved in together.. broke up 6 months later, continued to live together as roommates for 7 more years.. went our separate ways for 8 years (but kept in touch - I had custody of the dogs ;) ) and then he moved back in -he's renting a room in my house.. and now it's been another 6 years. I think we are soul mates.. just not meant to be romantically linked. lol

HI Minx; I like the "new Sylar too", I didn't think I would so much since he is so "evil" per say on Hero's...LOVE THE SHOW!! My Obsession that I have BIG TIME is with the show "Deadliest Catch" on the Discovery Channel, LOVE IT...but just this past Week my very very very very Favorite Captain, Captain Phil Harris of the F/V Cornelia Marie passed away; I've written about the show several times and just posted two recent topics about it; Needless to say I've been very upset the last two weeks we get to know these characters so well and I became friends with several of them on Myspace etc... and other forums, websites they are on and now this has happened; Needless to say my heart is just shattered into many many tiny pieces; Good Luck with your Obsession (G)!

Same here i do not get much British comedy here as well.So i watch a lot of the shows on youtube. the only thing about the show is that you should have some knowledge of the slang language of the UK.

I always seem to be getting hooked with one obsession or another. Right now, it's with reading ebooks on my computer. It's amazing how many good writers there are on the internet, and I keep discovering more and more of them. I suppose in a way it's bad because I neglect things I should be doing when I'm hooked into a good book. But everybody needs an obsession or two. Right?

I'm here right now and I think that illustrates my greatest addiction at the moment. I'm addicted to the computer. I don't think that it is necessarily an unhealthy thing because I don't spend all of my time exclusively on the computer. I am able to get off of the computer and have a life that exists outside of the computer. However, I do think that there are people that have an addiction to the computer that is unhealthy.

I'm obsessed with trying to make $200 USD online so that I can buy this really nice designer umbrella online.$200 for an umbrella,albeit a really really nice one is a bit much and I don't want to use my own money.If I can make this much online it would be great.

That's a good thing to be obsessed about and not an unrealistic goal.. I got 130 in the last 2 months.. so it can be done.. Good luck.

I think I can call this addiction. I've been playing facebooks mycafe about a couple of months already. And I cant believe it that even during office hours I find time to look into mycafe just to check if meal is cook already. Funny how this game has captured my attention.

At present I am currently obsessed with my weight. I am doing anything and everything I can to lose extra pounds that I have gained since working at home. I am obsessed with what and how much I eat and I also make sure to exercise everyday. That is really the one thing I am solely focused on right now.

18 Feb 10
I hear ya.. I am not happy with mine either.. I just don't have the drive to do everything I am supposed to do to lose the weight. I should do more to motivate myself.. I have about 55-70 pounds I could do with without. :-)

I used to love Emergency !(Randolph Mantooth and Kevin Tighe)Don't know Why I remember their names either.. I was just a kid when it was on. But it was so cool! My favorite shows from a little ways back were Stingray with Nick Mancuso and Voyager.. with Jon Erik Hexum and Meeno Peluce.. I have even found them on youtube and gotten to rewatch.. what a trip!

That's a good goal- I was happy when I got my own house.. I bought it for my dogs.. I needed a place so they could have their own back yard and we got a really big yard too. They love it!

I am probably addicted to the computer as well. I spend so much time on the internet.. at work 8-9 hours and then at home for another 5 or 6. I don't get enough sleep.. I try to not go on as much on my days off and I sit in front of the TV instead.. LOL

Gosh, where do I start? Pete Doherty's definately one of my main ones. He's one of the most talented people I've ever come across and after seeing him live a few weeks ago I can honestly say he's one of my favourite live preformers ever. Another is Russell Brand. I've liked him for years but I've only recently discovered the podcasts he did for the BBC a few years back. The man's a comical genius ahah. Also a wee bit obsessed with Calvin Harris at the moment, he's a stunner he is! Fashion in general too. I spend way too much time looking through clothes websites and reading fashion magazines.

Yes, I am.. I am currently addicted to a lot of things such as tv series (heroes, chuck and fringe), songs (maybe tomorrow, two is better than one, the man who can't be moved and better than worst), gadgets( my pink asus laptop, iphone, nokia 5530), picture taking, out of town trips, food tripping (we've been doing this for the past few days), facebook, mylot, twitter and many more.. you know, just like you, i am looking forward to watch heroes season 4 :)

Me too- I get addicted to certain shows.. I am really on the Heroes kick now.. I REALLY Hope that they will bring it back. But with my luck -they will cancel it just because I got "into" it again.. That and I hear there ratings have dropped A LOT! I love my Nokia too - I have a cool pix S230. I love taking pics and then putting them on Zazzle and creating stuff with them and earning money.. it's a great pass time. I also go on Facebook every day.. and playmafia wars.. I am not as obsessed as I used to be. Season 4 on heroes is good. I just finished it.. my favorite Sylar episode is THE WALL - it's the episode right before the finale. I even rewatched it twice today. :-)

Well, enjoy your addiction while it lasts. I can't say as I'm addicted or obsessed with anything these days. That would take too much effort.

I think I am obsessed with my boyfriend. I always think about him when he's only few hours away from me. I want to be by his side day and night, every minute, every second of the day, if possible. I am very much afraid about losing him and I even go crazy sometimes if we encounter some problems with our relationship. I think I cannot live a happy life without him by my side. I always want to look good everyday for him to see and appreciate that I am beautiful. I am not sure if this is good or bad but one thing I am sure of, I am happy that I love him so much.

Yes, when you are that addicted to someone close to you it can become a bad thing. Jealousy is not a very good emotion and you have to be careful not to lose yourself in someone else.. because if something should ever happen to your relationship you need to be able to know how to survive on your own.
