This Meme is all about OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder as it expands to. So Ms.Wiki says OCD is…,
Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions) – (wiki)
So I gonna list out three OCD’s I’ve been freaking with here and ofcourse I’m ought to tag three of my random blog friends to Compulsorily Express their Obsessive Disorders.
1. Pace Deceleration of Books
I do not know from my near consciousness as when did I start stopping near the Book Strands and other road side book shops. Seriously, my pace decelerates and I find myself locked at the titles of the novels stacked on the shelves or on the pavements. I spend a solid 15 to 20 minutes based on the volume of book titles to be scanned. If it’s a Landmark, then it’s going to be a scanning and reading of few books for a solid 1 hour or two. I don’t know why I’m so much obsessed with just walking along the shelves and scanning the titles.
Whenever I drop to T. Nagar or Pondy Bazaar with my Mom, Dad n Sis for any of the shopping occasions, they find me missing suddenly beside them and after a glimpse on left, right and at back, they will find me near a road side book shop which has a nice collection of Novels in half rate. Ranging from John Grisham, Michael Crichton to Chetan Bhagat, all those colorful publication from Rupa and Penguin delights me much, though they have become so old and cello-taped. It irritates my mom and dad much for delaying their shopping schedule and my dad usually ends up coming up with the analogy of lamp-posts and dogs with bookshops and I :|. Who cares!
In case of hanging out with friends in Spencers, Citi Center or any mall in that case, we spend around 40% of the total time spent for haning out in Landmark. Though we actually don’t have anything to buy, we love window shopping and obsessively some solid time in the Landmark scanning through the Books, Magazines, Perfumes, Antiques and Glass ‘Pieces’, PSPs, Movie/Music DVDs and pretty girls coming there to buy those smiley balls and ID card smiley pins!
How vetti the time may be, if I get a book store and a large volume of books inside it, then I assure you I won’t complain and nag you with my boring talks for another two hours!
2. Blood Acceleration of Prettiness
Okay this is very normal with guys, but I guess, I’m bit over sensitive to pretty girls. At all the same places described above, if I happen to lock a pretty girl(s) with my sight, my heart beats faster and of course things will be in control, but still all those butterflies flaps its wings in a colorful shimmering paths orbiting around me. The scene around the pretty lady freezes and I’ll be like Shahrukh Khan in “Aankhon Mein theri ajab si ajab si adaayein hain” song from Om Shanti Om, except that nothing from my dress, gets entangled in the girls’ dupattah or chains or anything loosely hanging around her and I don’t become behosh falling down hands in chest
Well, I do stop sometimes to scan them for their prettiness. I get so much obsessed with their features. You see, girls don’t become pretty because they are fair or tall and has perfect contours in appropriate places. But It’s in those small small things that make them so much adorable – the way she eats those Chocolate stubs or a sandwich, the way the strands of hair fall on their shoulders, or how she carries herself in the dress she is wearing, the way she turns the pages of the book, the way she thinks about something biting the tip of the pen which she is holding and many more such notable niceties.
The worst part of this is, all those moments last for a brief period of time until she leaves the place. Then what, I too leave the place!
So this obsession of prettiness is always there! Hmmm.
3. Mind temptation of Gadgets
Well, Girls and Gadgets never cease to keep me occupied. I’m one obsessed freaking gadget maniac. Come the gadget into existence, Google suffers a lot in my hands to churn out loads and loads of pages about its details. I love reading the technical reviews about those gadgets. Starting from the hardware, operating system, their processors and its user interface, I read everything. Be it a mobile or a laptop or even a desktop, ranging from SLR, iPad, and other touchpads, touch phones, Android, HTC, Samsung, Apple, Canon, Nikon, Cloud computing, Concept phones, Bikes, Cars, blogs, and other technology buzz words, I’m freaking obsessed.
My mom keeps worrying about the girl who is gonna marry me. She says if you spend a all your time with gadgets/Internet like this, I pity the girl who is going to spend her life with you. Well to be frank I use Gmail anytime, browse Facebook and Twitter from mobile liking, commenting and tweeting during bus/train journeys, listening to mp3/Radio as well, at Home again FB, chatting, thinking what to write next in my blog, what to click with my cam and where to go. Hopefully my future girl will also join my league along with me and I’ll have more time for her and for her obsessions too! 🙂
Whenever someone talks about anything technologically new or attractive, I spend the next one hour or two reading and scanning images of it. My recent obsessions are the owned Canon SLR, not-yet-bought Samsung Galaxy S II, not-yet-released-India Nokia N9, rumoured-but-seems-to-be-gorgeous Phone 5 and err…many more.
Guess it was too much of insanity overloaded in this post!!!
Lemme stop here and I tag the following people to take the meme forward.
Hope you 3 will let me know your obsessions!!!! 😀
