Sunday Stealing

Sunday Stealing: The Fandom Meme

Rules: We all are fans. Be it Star Trek or Twilight, you are a fan of something. Pick a subject, book, TV or movie series. Now tell us all about it!


1. The first character I fell in love with: Special Agent Gibbs

2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Gibbs. First of all, he's played by Mark Harmon who, while attractive, did such a good job playing two men who brutalized women -- Ted Bundy and Tom Capano -- that he kinda gave me the willies. And his character's name is Leroy Jethro Gibbs, not a name I imagine whispering in the night.

3. The character I would shag anytime: Gibbs

4. The character I'd slap: Mossad Director David. He's a dick.

5. Who are my 3 favorite characters. Gibbs. Ducky. Abby.

6. What are my 3 favorite pairings. Tony and Ziva. Abby and McGee. Gibbs and me.

7. Which character I'm most like. None of them.

8. The coolest thing about the canon: The fraternal feeling among the team members. I especially love how Abby and Gibbs relate to one another.

9. The lamest crappiest thing about the canon: That Gibbs doesn't have access to a conference room and holds confidential meetings with his team in the elevator.

10. My guiltiest pleasure in this fandom: The head slap

11. What story I wish I could read (or art I wish I could see): Gibbs actually happy in love

12. What story I wish I had written/still want to write: Gibbs happy in love with me

The chick is in her element

I am soooo loving this Cub game. Ted Lilly, just off the DL, went deep into the game and didn't give up a single run. The offense performed and supported him with 5 runs. And then, wonder of wonders, Carlos Zambrano came in as a reliever, gave up a run but batted in a run, too.

And here I am, sitting here with a beer, enjoying every moment. Life is better with Cubs baseball in it.

Saturday 9

Saturday 9: I Want to Hold Your Hand

1. What do you notice about other people's hands? Clean nails.

2. If someone was nosing around your house, what would you hope they wouldn't see? That my bedroom curtains need cleaning. I just don't have the time, energy or motivation to take them down and wash them, but they really do need it.

3. Do you think that the more stuff you own enhances your life or adds to your burden? Depends on the stuff. I don't mean to be flip, but that's my take. Whether an item is an enhancement or a burden is defined by your outlook and the item.

4. What was the last movie you saw in the theatre? Shutter Island. Loved Leo.

5. What do you have under your bed? My boom box. Oftentimes my cat, Charlotte.

6. What do you think your s/o or best friend would say about what makes you unique? My best friend says it's how much I care about the right things.

7. What's your current favorite TV commercial? It's the Colonial Penn commercial that takes place at a family reunion. Uncle Joe has just died, and the menfolk miss him. Especially his jokes. "Same each year, but I still miss him." We cut to the kitchen, where the womenfolk discuss the widow. "How's Aunt Stella doing since Uncle Joe died?" This commercial was on all day long when I was a freelancer and worked from home, and when it comes on now I am proud to say I can still recite large chunks along with the TV. I'm not alone in this. Click here.

8. Who do you owe a phone call to? I'm pretty caught up.

9. Do you know about my friend's new meme Wednesday Wickedness? Will you give it a try this week just for me? Please? :) How could I miss your plugs? You're a very helpful friend. And yes, I played last week.
