I sat in a blog conference session last Saturday. During that session the presenter made a football reference THIRTY-SIX times in a 45 minute presentation. There were about 50 women and 10 men listening to this presentation and the other women seemed to know what he was talking about. They were saying things like Gophers and Badgers and Hawkeyes, oh my. I started filing my nails and now have no idea what blog subject we were even talking about. I had to the urge to stand up and yell VAGINA just to see if we could change the subject.
But I didn’t.
And then I realized that football was his thing. And I let him have his thing. Now there is no way in hell you will ever find me tailgating in a parking lot, painting my stomach purple, wearing horns on my heads, or god forbid wearing anything resembling a jersey EVER – I need to respect the fine folks who do that…because today was a very good example of me exercising my rights to obsess and talk about something right into the ground – shopping.
I am pretty sure I sent out no less than 150 tweets about Missoni for Target today – and that doesn’t count the Facebook appeals, the direct messages, the texts, the phone calls, the tears, the newspaper interviews(yes my lack of THE sweater IS newsworthy) here also(and a nice link back), or the many chat boards conversations I participated in.
I have basically dedicated the last 24 hours of my life to Missoni for Target and I still DO NOT OWN THE sweater
or THE Pillows
or THE throw
That I covet. Oh my hell I am not sure how I will ever sleep. This first world problem has put me in a very dark place of shopping hell.
But I don’t blame Target for it. I love them for it. This thrill of the hunt, the haves and have nots, the elusive and hard to get product. OMG it’s orgasmic and I want MORE! THIS, THIS is what I love to do. The rush. I am fashion obsessed.
Of course it’s always nicer to end the shopping hunt with your sought after items – but even after a loss like today, I admit it is still almost as awesome to just play the game.
(However – if anyone out that finds that sweater in a Small or X-Small – call me! I admit that I’d be a wee bit happier owning that sweater.)
So did you shop for Missoni today? What did you get? Please don’t tell me if you got the pillows and throw as we can no longer be friends..or if you find them missing it like totally almost wasn’t me who took them. If you are bored with my fashion tweets, talk and have now unfollowed me on twitter – what is your one thing you obsess about?
