Unhealthy Obsession

Short post just to say: I LOVE washi tape with journalling lines already on it. GENIUS.

"I go through phases with DVD boxed sets. Wendy caught me at a vulnerable moment when I'd run out of House. Her cure? Lending me Grey's Anatomy. This is all very well as it's gripping, absorbing, melodramatic, utterly addictive, and I love it! Basically, Wendy is an enabler, able to accurately predict when I will run out of one season in order to feed my habit and supply the next. So now in a morning, upon my arrival at school, we gossip about people I don't know pretending to be other fictional people I don't know. In fact they make my own colleagues seem tres staid and conventional. Then of an evening I go home and watch a couple more episodes. "I can't believe George slept with Meredith!" "Will Burke ever opperate again?!!!" "NO WEDDING???!!!" And the whole process is very satisfying because I firmly believe they could lead cheerful lives if they just pulled themselves together. But if they did, it wouldn't be much of a TV series and I'd have to gossip about my real colleagues. Hmm..."

P.P.S. And now I must go and play with my shiny new white mist because, y'know, YAY!

  3. I haven't seen it with the journalling lines on - where did you get it?
    I am a total Grey's addict too and love Christina and Alex the most! Even though I love to hate them too! x

  4. Ooh, I think I need some of that, please! It's a lovely page, I always love to see how you fit your journaling in

  5. This sounds just like me and one of the other secretaries at school, anybody listening to our conversations would think that we really had friends called McDreamy and McSteamy ;-) .... if only .....
    I've just watched the last episode on the newest series and can't wait for the next one!

  6. Whoa, deja vu.... Because, of course, I saw this layout on Scrap Factor already :) And voted for it, naturally! xx

  7. Gorgeous! Love everything about this. Brilliant idea of lots of little bits of journalling.

  8. I understand your obsession! Lined wash tape sounds fab!!! :)
