My latest obsession(s)

The League of Extraordinary Bloggers is back, and we already have a topic for this week:

My latest obsession.

It's a tough one, since, like some of my fellow bloggers, I may have several obsessions at any one time. I was able to narrow it down to just a couple though.


I can't remember how I got turned on to the Glyos universe, but I'm in deep. We're talking deep space deep. Okay, so I might be that bad (yet), but I've bought more of these little guys than I have anything else this past year. I find myself constantly checking the Onell Design website, trying to make sure I don't miss out on the next drop. The basic designs of the figures tend to stay the same, while the colors are changed for each release. What's amazing to me, is that a simple change in color is enough to keep the characters from getting stale.

Crayboths seem to be my main obsession. They're just so cheap! I can't help but throw one or two in with every order. Eventually, I'm going to end up with my own little Crayboth infestation, and from what I've read of Glyos lore, that is something you absolutely do not want. The other great thing about figures that use the Glyos system, is that parts can be interchanged between them. So, you could mix limbs from Four Horsemen's Outer Space Men with the bodies of Onell's figures and so forth. Inexpensive (for independent toys), durable, and they allow you to get creative. I know I've mentioned these guys before, but I really can't get over how cool they are. The only thing that comes close for me, is LEGO.

My next obsession is a food item that I hold near and dear to my heart.

Cadbury Mini Eggs

I had to use a stock photo because a bag would never last long enough for me to take a picture. It used to be, the Cadbury Creme Eggs were my crack equivalent on Easter Sunday. Then I was introduced to these wonderful treats. I was hooked. Eating one of the Creme Eggs was enough to make me feel like I needed to lay down for a few hours. The Mini Eggs though, I could eat them until my tears ran blue from all the artificial coloring. Since the stores have started setting up their Easter stuff, I can't help but snatch a bag or two on my way to the register. I even go as far as hiding the wrappers down in the trash can, just so I won't have to deal with the disappointed look I would surely get from Chelsea when she found them.

Actually, I'm probably going to get one after she reads this entry. Don't be surprised if you come across a news story, about a 30-something year old male, found dead in a bathtub full of Cadbury Mini Eggs. That'll be me.

  1. omggg Mini Eggs! I'd take a photo of the bag I bought at CostCo yesterday, but it's is bordering on empty. I probably just got diabetes. No regrets. (--Linz)
