Guest Blog Week Extravaganza: Without Obsession Life Is Nothing

Hey guys, I'm off to the winter wonderland that is Tennessee for the week, and some of my very best blogging buddies have offered to guest post for me.  Be sure to comment and then go check out their blogs and become followers - I promise you won't regret it! 
Today is my last guest blogger, and it's the totally awesome Emily from Without Obsession Life Is Nothing.  She writes about a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but mostly about movies.  I love her affection for John Waters and 80s films, and I'm terribly jealous of her because she met both John Waters and Jeff Goldblum this year!  Be sure to go check out her blog - you'll fall in love with her!

When Jess asked me to do a guest post for her my first thought, I won't lie, was "what the hell am I going to write about?". Both of our blogs are fairly varied, from current events to the trashy eighties movies we both adore with a passion, what was I going to write about to appeal to both of our readers? What was I going to write about to get more people to come to my blog? Truth be told I'm a shameless publicity fiend so the chance to get more readers, well who would turn that down? Why have all of
my sentences so far ended in question marks? Ok, let's move on.

I want to talk to you about opinions. About differences. About what makes us who we

So what makes a person? Is it the things we like, the movies we watch, what political party we support? Personally I'm an atheist and a liberal, some people have described me as an anarchist because of my pretty hardcore views on the way the world should be run. But let's not go into politics because first of all I'd be here all Christmas and second of all I'm sure we don't want to hear about the state of the world at the holiday season, depressing much?

What I'm trying to say is there are many factors that make people who they are and there are always going to be people that disagree with you, always. Seriously though, if everyone agreed with each other what a boring world we would live in. Even though you might have a differing opinion to someone it doesn't mean that you can't be friends, Jess is a Christian and a republican, our religious and political beliefs are polar opposites but that doesn't mean we have to be enemies. People are far too quick to make enemies and slow to make friends, when you look below the surface there's usually something there you can connect with.

That's why this Christmas we should forget about religious differences, political beliefs, who's sports team is better than who's and simply come together as what we are. People. People who believe in the true meaning of Christmas and yeah this is coming from the so-called anarchist Atheist, trust me we're not all bad. Isn't that what this holiday is about, spreading love and good-will to all men regardless of race, nationality or opinion? It's a time for forgetting about feuds, forgetting about the things that someone has said to annoy you if only for one day out of the whole year. So here's to you Bill O'Reilly of FOX News, I disagree with everything you say but I really hope you have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. See, that wasn't so painful was it?
