Last night I got some time to watch the telly. PBS had a show on about people who grow pumpkins. Not just your everyday pumpkins either but HUGE ones!!! It was called "Lords Of The Gourds". These people all had innocent enough reasons why they started into pumpkins- fun with kids, cool looking plant in garden, etc etc... . Then they became obsessed about growing pumpkins!! HA it started to sound like chicken people!! They talked about the diseases, damage from predators, genetic varieties, and bad people. One guy had a huge watering system and weather monitors (including solar radiation) to see if he could determine what influenced the pumpkins to grow so huge ( one was 1245 lbs). But what almost made me fall of the couch laughing was when they talk about getting on the internet in "pumpkin sites" to discuss with like minded people the problems/success/etc.. they were having!!!! Soooo... I was wondering... what are other crazies obsessed about??? Anybody got an Uncle you won't claim in public because he will expound about the beauty of an engored tick??? A distant relative who was dissected by aliens but lived to tell about it???
