Unapologetic Fangirl

“I don’t believe in guilty pleasures, I believe you should be able to like what you like. If you a like a fucking Ke$ha song, listen to fucking Ke$ha.” — Dave Grohl

As I grow older, I find it harder to hide the things I love. I also find it harder to justify those things to other people. Yes, I like to watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians when no one’s around. Why, of course I read Tori Spelling’s books and weep over them. Yeah, I probably do have an unhealthy obsession and identification with Girls. WHAT’S IT TO YOU, WHOREBISCUIT?
 
Yesterday I probably would have said, “Well, it’s really just a guilty pleasure and I know it’s bad and blah, blah, fucking BLAH.” Today I say, to hell with that. I am who I am, and that’s a fangirl who fangirls about a lot of shit. Like shit that doesn’t even make sense for one entity to be equally obsessive over.
This brings on this whole other level of justification. “I mean yeah, I do love Star Wars, but I also really love crafting, and I mean I totally enjoy fashion, but I am like crazy in lust with outdoor adventuring!!!!~*”
I’m throwing that bi-polar rationalization out the window, too. I don’t have to explain why I like what I like, and I certainly don’t have to explain the complexities of the human mind, and maybe, JUST MAYBE, that’s why I like things that are on completely different ends of the Kinsey scale of fandom. I’m just tired of that judgmental, bulgy side-eye thing. Don’t judge me for what I like, bro, at least not enough to make you a dick. Be polite judge-y Southern about it.
You don’t have to love what I love. God knows I don’t love everything in your trunk o’ stuff n’ things. Let me listen to my Carly Rae Jepsen in peace while I drink warm tea out of my Simon Pegg mug.
Fandom collage anyone? No? Too late

I’
m just a Simon Pegg lovin’, Angie worshipping, comedy slave who loves fashion, the South, Star Wars, New York City, decorating, crafting, a little reality TV, and drinking my mimosas heavy on the champagne side.

It’s okay that I am a clusterfuck of different compulsions… you are too.
What are your biggest fandoms? I haven’t even scratched the surface of mine!
 
P.S. My fonts are really awesome now. If you’re getting a weird combo like Curlz and Times New Roman, I haven’t lost my mind. Your browser just needs a life upgrade.

  1. Buffy girl for life. Also a big fan of Battlestar Galactica, Clue, Tolkien, Hunger Games, Pat O'Shea's crazyass Irish mythology mashup The Hounds of the Morrigan, growing stuff (we had our first peas of the year last weekend!), my cats, my husband, singing, finishing these godforsaken cranes, and living life without nightmares.

  2. LOVE Clue!!! And some of those others as well 🙂 My sis has been trying to get me to watch BG for a long time, but I told her only when she watches Lost. We're in a stalemate…
