Wednesday’s Word: Addictagious

Your addictions are contagious. It’s true. Enthusiasm and passion is like a viral infection that spreads and affects those around you. The addictions I am talking about have no cure but still you carelessly spread them. Thankfully I have just a few.

Addiction List:
My Blog
Your Blog
Vampire Diaries
Reruns of Buffy
Onion Rings
Chocolate Donuts
Kisses (non-chocolate variety) Although at this point kisses from my son can only be obtained by chasing him, wrestling him to the ground, and taking them. He is bigger than me so it’s not easy but addictions cannot be denied.

Writers are the worst at this problem. You convince others not to give up their own addictions with your encouraging words. You pimp awesome books to tempt us, filled with zombies, vampires, and…kisses. You hold contests and conferences and offer advice at every turn.

Have you no shame?

Without these addictions I might lead a normal life…a life filled with knitting and reruns of Family Ties. I would eat carrot sticks and dream of butterflies, not ghosts or hot werewolf guys.

Maybe you have no idea how addictagious you are, handing out hope like candy.
Please don’t ever stop.

And that, my friends, is the Word.


  1. awwwww I HAVE NO SHAME!!

    also i love you.


  2. Would life really be worth living if you didn't dream of ghosts or hot werewolf guys? I think not! Thank goodness for all of those addictions!! LOL :)

  3. I always enjoy your posts! We share similar addictions. Oh, well...the first step is admitting we have a problem. ;) It's totally true: addictions are contagious! Addictagioius...nice word.

  4. Ha! I just laughed out loud and it's ten o' clock at night! I SO love coming to your blog, your funny and your writing is always witty and smart. And um, I'm totally blaming you if I dream of hawt werewolves tonight. *team Jacob*

  5. I love this post! Darn writers, always dangling hope in front of us, always encouraging, never letting us give up. *sigh* :) It's a crazy world, it's nice to know there's an endless flow of support from SOMEWHERE. :D And I, too, am addicted to caffiene.

  6. Mmmmmm chocolate donuts. I'm craving them now!

  7. I prefer hot werewolf boys to butterflies anyhow!

  8. Your top four are also part of my top five. My day job tops my list. But after these five, jelly donuts, Ruffles chips and Diet Pepsi might rival "your blog" status. I'd got to almost any lengths to get them, and without an iota of shame.

    Gotta have those vices.



It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
