The Daily Ping

Ain't no party like a Ping party!

April 26th, 2006


There’s a quote attributed to John Waters that I like to throw about every now and then: “Without obsession, life is nothing.”

Here at the Ping, both of us hope that after six plus years of daily Pinging, you’ll be able to figure out what we’re obsessive about. Toilets, Oreos, horror movies, TiVo, roadsigns, and spam – of course, spam. But what about you? What’s the one thing, or two things, you’re really passionate and obsessive about?

Besides hacking water coolers, of course.

Apparently we like the same quote (though I got the wording slightly wrong).

OMG, the internet doesn't have enough room for me to list obsessions. ROFL.

Being an anal individual who was a military intelligence analyst (yes, insert jokes here), getting things right and in the proper order is WAY HIGH on my list.

For many years, my bio has claimed: "I'm always obsessed with something. You could be next."

The list is long, but it includes bento boxes, horror movies and books, simple living, and personal finance. Obsessions are fun!

Holding cutlery correctly is an obsession of mine. Why can't people hold their knives and forks correctly when they cut?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
