A. list five habits/quirks/facts about yourself
B. tag five people to do the same

One: to earn money in college I was an art model in the same department and for the same teachers and with the same students I took classes with. It was a wonderful experience and, yeah, there are bronzes and oils of me out there somewhere. I have a couple of the pastels from teachers.

Two: I talk with my hands, people imply that I must have Italian in me but, sadly, no...I'm English, Welsh and German.

Three: I find hetero love stories BOR...ING, I can only read gay now and only then if they're NOT really just hetero love stories with two guys. I probably own every gay teen coming-of-age story Barnes&Noble sells. Yeah, that's right, I like 'em young which is probably more a quirk then a fact realizing that gay teen coming-of-age stories at B&N don't have much sex.
As a side note: Lauren collects Shonen Ai which means boy love and are boy with boy manga stories...the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.

Four: I have a very easy way of doing the grocery shopping list which makes it so Lauren and I can do all of it...planning the week's meal's, shopping and putting everything away in less then two hours and only once a week. I DO NOT like grocery shopping.

Five: I've come close, on more then one occasion, to leaving this fandom because of Ethan Gold, aka 'the fiddler'. I've a lot of trouble understanding the nearly universal hate, especially as expressed by people I otherwise respect, of him and have become very protective of him. Realizing how completely polar I am in how I see him has made me question if I really belong here. And yet.



I will tag
galesweetie, seanmegansean, adrtylilsecret, fansee, and lastglances. Come play.

Well that's true - I took a severe dislike to the character Lindsay and couldn't stand Brian until well into the second season, almost the third. Probably because that character type rubs me wrong in general. But when the episode was over, the episode was over, I guess I meant that lasting kind of dislike I often hear at LJ, even outright hatred carried over into real life.

and in that you are totally right as far as I can see, when you leave the theater or turn off the tv or close the book, the anger should stay there.
This girl was posting a story, maybe a month ago, on lj bjfic and said basically that it was ethan/hate what else because anyone who didn't hate ethan must be sick in the head and needed a psychiatrist. I commented back and did get, diplomatically, pissed. I mean whatthehell, that's just mean and taking it too far, like you said, outside of the show and into reality.

It's probably just me but I never took a dislike, severe or otherwise, to anyone but Mel, her dissing of Brian, whether deserved or not, brought out the mom in me.

Thanks for listening to my little rant, I know none of this interests you anymore.

Good grief! O_O ... uh, I mean, get a life, girl? A brain? You know, the most disturbing thing about this kind of thing isn't even the hate, it's the fact that these people are adults. From six-year-olds I might expect this, but you hear it from people who are of an age (or even much older) that they're in charge of kids themselves, and that's kind of disturbing to me.

I wouldn't say that. I mean, I haven't watched the show in over a year and don't think about it much myself, but people I care about aren't as fickle as I am and still care about the show. In that way, it still interests me.
