Obsession – II

My regular readers will know a consortium of bloggers called the Loose Bloggers Consortium (LBC) write on the same topic every Friday. Last Friday, it was “Obsession”.

It was an interesting bouquet of posts topped by Conrad’s “Magnificent Obsession”. That is some obsession!

Now, I have come across another incident of Magnificent obsession. A man called Miljenko Bukovic from Chile has his body tattooed like this:


And the subject matter is Julia Roberts.

Another matter struck me like a thunder bolt. There is another Magnificent Obsession going around the blog sphere. The object of the obsession is our very own Loose Bloggers Consortium. Yes, the LBC.

The obsessor? Our very own predictable Ursula. She displays all the classic symptoms of the Compulsive Obsessive. Just visit all the LBC blogs regularly and you will know why I say that. Better, go to her own blog

While I am very pleased to be the object, or at least a part it, of someone’s magnificent obsession, I can’t help wonder if Ursula realizes that it is not very healthy to obsess about such a disparate and perhaps even desperate group of bloggers, who should know better than to blog. None of us are quite Julia Roberts or say Leonardo DiCaprio. Oops, sorry, I should not speak for Grannymar who may indeed believe that she is the former and Ashok and Conrad who may think that they are either the latter or someone even better! I hope that the three will forgive me my presumption, which is actually what my Muse writes and not my creation.

Ursula, I assure you that I enjoy being the object of your obsession. You however have to see whether it is healthy for you. I have many more moons than you behind me and have been the object of obsession for others too and I can handle it. “My significant other right now is myself, which is what happens when you suffer from multiple personality disorder and self-obsession.”

Can you handle your obsession?
