Top Ten Tuesday
Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, Top Ten Tuesday is a celebration of lists! Each week a theme will be posted and bloggers will post their lists on their respective blogs. Some themes are pretty straightforward and others are open for interpretation.
This week’s Topic: Fandom Freebie!
I’m not going to lie, I’m a fandom whore. I have such a deep love for things it’s not even funny. I’ve always been a fandom whore even before I knew what a fandom was and narrowing it down to ten is tough but I’ll give it a try.
NCIS - Okay so am I still in the fandom if I prefer the seasons with Ziva David? Cause that character was my absolute favorite. Dangerous, flawed (So flawed), and intelligent. Also, Gibbs. The ultimate Alpha Male who DOESN’T get on my nerves.
Thank goodness e-readers came about because if I added one more book I was going to be strangled and buried under all my books. Sadly I had to give away 98% of my physical copies. I’ve kept all my signed books and a few that had sentimental value to me.
I've also learned that Hayley has ZERO respect for books. Or e-readers.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - This show got me through my teen years in one piece. It’s a magical show that really touched a lot of people. Taking teen/real life problems and using monsters to represent them really drove home how tough we all had it and how a lot of us felt when dealing with those issues. Buffy ushered in a new kind of female character: The hero of the story. She saved herself, she saved her friends, she saved her boyfriend, and even though she had all this super strength she was still vulnerable in a way that made her totally relatable. If you’ve never watched the show you really should. If it’s not Buffy you relate to, it could be Willow, Xander, Giles or any of the other addictive characters. I have ALL the seasons on dvd and can recite lines like no one’s business.
Pens - I have four gallon ziplocks of pens that I use sparingly because I can’t replace them as easily as I used to. I have coloring ink pens, ball point, fine point, glitter pens, quill tip pens, marker pens, the works. I was worse in high school though because that’s all I would ask for for my birthday and Christmas. I also had friends who were enablers and got me pens too. Usually as a bribe but hey a pen is a pen right?
Cold Weather - Not like 10 below 0 or anything like that but I love those cloudy, chilly days where you just want to curl up with a book while wearing your snuggie. While cuddling your dog (or cat). My favorite days are when it’s about 60 degrees, cloudy and raining a bit. London type weather actually. That’s when I feel happier and healthier.
Those are just a few of my fandoms. I'm bad.
