K.A. Laity, author of "Drunk on The Moon-Volume 7-It's A Curse" Guest Post -"Obsession"

  Obsession

 

I seem to have two speeds: obsessed and don't care. The greater part of the world falls into "don't care": politics, fashion, television, sports -- I just don't care. For that matter, add cooking and cleaning and talking to people who don't amuse me. Obsessions: writing, Peter Cook,…
