    I just looked in the fridge and realized... My name is Mike and I'm a film junkie. I've got expired Konica, 3M, Ferrina, several supermarket brands, Fuji, and Kodak... and that's just color. On the other half, I've got fp5, a ton of tri-x, apx, pan f, and fomapan. Everytime I go to get groceries or just stuff, I can't help but going to the film counter and checking out what's there. I found EliteChrome at Shopko, so I bought four rolls. I'm not even a fan of slide film, but I just had to get some. There's an independent department store in town (Evans) that has a Kodak display with a ton of expired Kodak Gold. Some of it comes out on the blue side, some a wee bit green, some makes faces look like they've got dysentary, but I just have to have some. Then there's the general store. They sell closeout food and stuff for absurd prices. What's more, they have food. So while I'm looking for clam chowder (4 cans for a buck) I sneak over to the film and load up with Konica, a few rolls of 110, some disc film, and maybe some polaroid. (I even found a roll of expired tri-x) I'm sure there's some 12 step program out there for folks like me, but I'm happy with being a film junkie.

    You beat me to the punch! When people come over they can tell two things from my fridge. First they can tell that I'm a bachelor. Second they learn that I, Scott, am also a film junkie.
