I frequently become obsessed with things. Though I joke about my obsessive personality, I really can't get something off my mind until I've become bored of it. And so begin my "obsessed" segments. First up. . .

Ballet! Cannot.get.enough. Who would have thought after all these years I'd be locked in my room reading Balanchine books again. Watched two documentaries in as many days (Étoiles - Dancers of the Paris Opéra Ballet and The Dancer, both quite good), went to see a performance of the New York City Ballet, and can't quite stop returning to Ballet Alert!, a website dedicated entirely to dissecting dance in it's many facets. In honor of my favorite pasttime, a few photos
