Dumb things you become obsessed with buying

DeeDee Adelaide
A few days ago I was thinking about how Glomesh* used to be a thing (or was that just an Australian thing?) and then got it into my head that I must source and buy Glomesh things. I found a purse and a key holder on Etsy, then spent way too much time bidding on several Glomesh cigarette cases on eBay, none of which I won. Now I’m hunting down a Glomesh cigarette lighter. I don’t smoke. 

So im wondering if other people do that - just randomly think of some dumb thing and then decide they must have it, despite living their lives without it thus far. Or alternatively, are you someone who bids on weird shit on eBay? 

*For those who don’t know what I’m talking about - this is Glomesh.

    At least once a day I give myself a mental note to check Amazon for Funko's SDCC exclusive release of the pop for Ron Swanson (Cornrow) which will come out at Comic Con. It's totally silly and ridiculous, but I MUST HAVE IT!!!


    I also saw that they plan to unveil a really fun batch of Friends ones including Monica with the turkey on her head (+ sunglasses and hat of course), Chandler with the sort of Flock of Seaguls haircut, Joey wearing all of Chandler's clothes, and some more. I'll probably have to grab a couple of those as well.

    I'm obsessed with finding discontinued Bath & Body Works items on Amazon or eBay (new in package, not partially used - ew).

    Broooo I was just in NY for a week and it took a lot of resistance to not buy multiple pairs of sneakers. I limited myself to just buying one pair of Jordan 3s. I even had to mail them to myself because I didn’t have room from other clothes that I bought. :D What have you bought lately?

    Also, my answer is the same, but with tacos.

    They *really* need to do one of Ross wearing the tiny t-shirt.  :grin:

    @Michelle That would be a great one! Ha! 
    For what it's worth, here are the ones they're putting out. A little Monica heavy, but there are some really fun ones:

    Prom Video Ross!  I love it.  They need more of the other characters though - 3 of Monica?  Preggo Rachel would be good, Ross in the tiny t-shirt or the aardvark costume, fat Joey or Joey in the Superman costume, bride Phoebe, and Chandler in the pink bunny costume

    @Noel @Chinaski Sneakers over here as well. Specifically, white sneakers. People always ask me why go with white seeing as they get scuffed and dirty so easily. I'm like "that's why. gives me an excuse to buy more." Like these so much I ended up buying a backup pair when they went on sale:

    @Noel and @Freddy - if i find the right pair that looks awesome, fits well and i know may sell out I buy multiple pairs. Air Max's and Dunk Low's are my weakness

    I feel I must have that too now, and I don’t even collect Funko.

    I would totally buy Ross (Holiday Aardvark)! It would be too silly, but Chandler in the box would be pretty funny too. Dr. Drake Ramore or Joey as Sigmund Freud could be fun. Also, a set of the "alternative universe Friends" would be a fun way to do it. Maybe a two pack (which they do sometimes) of Phoebe and Ursula.

    A weighted blanket. I can't get it out of my mind. The one I'd get on Etsy is like $200. I'll report back if I ever do get it.

    Books. I am aiming to have a floor to ceiling epic bookcase in our house with hundreds of my favourite books. I’ve been stockpiling books for years now and getting to the point where it’s about time to start looking for a sick bookcase.

    besides that I find myself buying way too many toys for the kids. They play with it for one day and then it goes into toy box. Waste of money.

  • Anyone who knows me would say books because every room in my place has an over-stuffed book case.

    However, I have a lesser known obsession with buying playing cards.  I've spent an embarrassing amount of money on buying limited edition playing cards.

    Same, but I usually try to get a different colorway unless I’m really into it or I think they’ll run out. Which is how I’ve ended up with dozens of Air Max 90s over the years. What are you favorites? 90s will always be my OG. I’m also a big fan of the 97s and 180s. I’m obviously still stuck in the 90s when it comes to sneakers.

    nice! ya know that pocket was made to put your gym key in apparently. i owned one pair when i was in my 20's (thought it was coolest thing cause Walter Payton rocked em). it wasn't velcro but a zipper pocket. i didn't put a gym key in it but i did put a dime bag in it. at the time i thought i was so cool, but looking back that was gross and dumb.

    Nice! I've been eyeing these blue and yellow Air Max 1's. You all are pushing me to pull the trigger...



    Back in the day I remember begging my mom to let me get Air Max 95s w/ the big gaudy neon green air bubble:
