eat your heart out (it tastes good)
You all, with the hearts! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

In random news, I hear things about Gossip Girl that I like and wished for way back in season one when I watched the show. How lovely! i don"t think this counts as a spoiler, but...Collapse )


Nina Dobrev > Everybody Else

Man, you know, I often become obsessed with TV shows first because I think one of the actors is really cute (hello: Supernatural), and then after a few episodes become very enamored with the actual characters. BUT, what usually happens is that I secretly have a very massive crush on one the male leads.

I am OBSESSED with TVD; however, I don't have a crush on any of the male leads (not that I would, you know, kick them out of bed). I just really want to be friends with Nina Dobrev. Seriously. I love hearing that she's awesome. I want to have martinis with her.

Also, I am getting married in 41 days! HOW STRANGE AND AWESOME.

Got VD?

Looks like a cross between Steel Magnolias and Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.

I am their target audience. Wheeee!

I was the only one in the office yesterday afternoon and decided to watch New Girl on Hulu, mostly because the ladies at GoFugYourself had complimentary things to say about it and I basically get my fashion advice and TV-watching advice from them. (For example, I marathoned Make It or Break It* because of them, and I now own a navy blazer because of them. They rarely steer me wrong.) SO, I watched all the episodes I could for free and I sort of adore it. I cannot help it. I think I was annoyed at first, but quickly fell for its quirky charm. I am a sucker for girls who happily make fools of themselves.


* I have the TV-watching habits of a thirteen year old girl. I used to say that sort of jokingly, but about one year ago, boy and I became friends with a couple we adore who have a thirteen year old daughter and she and I bond A LOT over TV and YA novels. It's gotten to the point where I have been to their house and hung out with her for an hour instead of the other adults. I HAVE A PROBLEM. My next goal is to introduce her to TVD, and then I am going to introduce her mom and her to Gilmore Girls, because the mom had the daughter at 20 and for the first 10 years of her life it was just the two of them and daughter is crazy smart and Mom is crazy quirky. I frequently quote/recap GG episodes to them.

Totally random, but I am almost finished with Divergent by Victoria Roth, and it mostly lived up the hype, in case any of you were thinking about checking it out.

TV For Everyone!

The holidays are officially over. I'm sort of looking forward to going back to work today, which is crazy pants, but I feel lazy after the past couple of days - much needed rest days, but still.

I have no resolutions for 2012, other than get married, and that's not much of a resolution so much as it is a plan (less than 90 days!). We booked our honeymoon Saturday. And we have dance lessons that his mom got us that we start this week.

Of course, the best part of the new year: TELEVISION. Mainly, Sherlock, which I have watched twice now (forcing the boy to do the same), and EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. I have missed ALL OF THEIR FACES. And - for me - the highlight of my week. VAMPIRE DIARIES. I have missed you. I can't wait to have you back!!!!! There's not much of a fandom for TVD, especially for Stefan/Elena, which I loooooovvveeee (I am seriously ridiculous about these two only they're the canon couple (er, sort of), so no one is writing fic about them and I feel I'm going to have to do it myself, because there are feelings. I have them). (Also, I want Elena/College and Damon/Katherine and Jeremy/ANYONE, and I also sort of want Elena/Alaric and all the stories about Caroline that exist.)

Anyway, bring on 2012. I am ready for it.(Which, since it's already here, is a good thing.)

flyingcarpet and I decided to close hpgw_otp. It's been a long time coming, I think. Sometimes we don't update for weeks at a time, and both of us are sort of moving on from fandom for various reasons. But, seriously, I've been sort of WEEPY about it. I think it's rather fitting that we're closing the newsletter when the final movie is coming out on DVD - sort of the end of the HP franchise.

Harry Potter was my first fandom. Harry/Ginny my first fandom love: the first stories I read; the first stories I wrote; the first forums I participated in; the first members of fandom I considered my friends. Specifically, flyingcarpet, who I don't think of a fandom friend, but merely my friend.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW. I'm far too busy to have much to do with fandom right now - though I hope that changes someday. Fandom has been with me now for over ten years. It's seen me through so many difficult times and even more wonderful times. It's made me feel accepted and loved. It's made me angry sometimes in a way only things you're really invested in can. It's made me laugh and cry and jump up and down and throw my hands up in disgust and it's made me SQUEEEE like nothing else in the world.

I'm not saying goodbye to fandom, but with the closing of hpgw_otp, I did want to say thank you. I am the person I am today because of fandom. Because of you. ♥ ♥ ♥

Fraiser was never a show I sought out, but I always enjoyed it when I caught it during reruns. Once, about 12 years ago, I saw this episode with this one scene with Niles that was comedic gold - seriously, pure genius. Every time I see Fraiser on TV now, I stop to see if it's the episode, and it never is. For some reason, I decided to google it tonight. This is the scene.

I post this mostly for myself, but I also sort of defy you to watch and not guffaw like a fool. BRILLIANT.
