Ice cubes. I eat them as if they were candy. I am aware that this is not normal
This is a symptom of an iron deficiency! I had the same "problem" - to the point I was driving my family nuts. I was also eating a bag of microwave popcorn every night along with a glass of ice cubes. I heard on the radio that eating ice was symptomatic of iron deficiency. I thought, "What the heck, let's experiment." Started taking vitamins w/iron and believe it or not, the craving completely disappeared - almost instantly. My teeth are very happy now. So is my family!

Tall Riding boots. (I can't even tell you how many pairs I already own, but one of the *best* parts of getting my colors, was getting new boots - yes, I could have put tops on any of a dozen pairs I already have, but...but......Oh, and I MUST have brown field boots too....
Receiving *every* tack catalog out there and knowing who has what. (and okay, ordering way more then I need)
Email, but perhaps that's not so secret.

Sushi and chocolate... When I went to a new orthopedic surgeon last month I knew he was perfect because when I found his office it happened to be right across the street from a sushi place I used to frequent when I lived in civilization. Now, when is that next appointment...?
It's all about the white rice...cooked with cheese and butter.....SO GOOD!! (I think I want some now before Lexi gets here [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] ).
Then there's always:

crab rangoon (even when the crab is merely imitation!)
the James Bond 007 videogame for Nintendo
the Real World, Road Rules, and other inane MTV shows designed for thirteen-year olds.
And, (this is really embarrassing, as my roommate is currently the one person who knows this): Animal Planet's afternoon programming, especially "Breed All About It" (2 and 2:30 EST), and "The Planet's Funniest Animals." ACK!

Hey, don't you all know what they say about people who chew ice?? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]. Sorry, but it IS off topic day.
My addictions really aren't so secret. I have a weird obsession with shoes and belts. I don't even know how many I own of either. When people tell me they only have one belt or worse even, no belts, I pity them. I actually feel sorry for these people. And yet, they don't seem to mind. Very strange if you ask me.
