~ Polaphrenia ~

Selfie_nov09Polaphrenia, noun, a clinical obsession with Polaroid film and cameras, often accompanied by an inability to control oneself when faced with a large stash of expired 600 film and a sunny day. There is currently no known cure for this condition, but in general most sufferers deny they have a problem (also known as Pola-denial). Polaphrenics rarely have fresh groceries in their house as they use their fridge to store their film stash. See also debt, bankruptcy, RSI.

Farewell Roid Week, it's been fun. Some more of my favourites are over here.

    I can relate to this! My fridge is full of polaroid and other types of film! I have to find a better solution though, because a few days ago, something happened with the drain in there and the walls were suddenly covered with water! I think the film was saved though, luckily!

    Do you know I stumbled on your blog by accident, and I was only talking recently about wanting a polaroid camera and now you’ve made me want one even more!
