i know you've thought about it...

1. Post a list of up to 20 books/movies/TV shows/videogames/etc. that you've had an obsessive fannish love of at some time in your life.
2. Have your friends guess your favorite character from each item.
3. Post in your own journal.

1. Gilmore Girls
2. Friends
3. Harry Potter
4. The Babysitter's Club series
5. The Lord of the Rings (books, not movies)
6. The Princess Bride
7. Wishbone
8. Veggie Tales
9. X Men
10. Dirty Dancing
11. A Few Good Men
12. Mad About You
13. Full House
14. East of Eden
15. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (book, not movie)

Okay, it's harder than I thought to come up with these... so fifteen is all you get. Clearly, many of my obsessions date back to childhood - I find I'm not as freakishly into things as I used to be. Any thoughts on whether that's good or not? :)

Give it a shot - what character did I like best from these books/movies/TV shows?

10 thoughts:

1. tough call, but I think Lorelai wins (Sookie and Rory follow closely)
2. Joey
3. Dumbledore
4. I really liked Staci, but she was way cooler than I could ever be, so I identified more with MaryAnn

6. Billy's Crystal's Miracle Man is classic - but I always wanted Buttercup's hair...
7. Yup! (was anyone else even a regular on that show?)
8. The French Peas

10. I wanted to BE Baby, but I had a hardcore pre-teen crush on Patrick Swayze in this movie.
11. Dan Kaffee (Tom Cruise)
12. Yup - Paul
13. Of COURSE - Uncle Jesse was HOTT (another preteen crush)
14. Lee

I'm not going to lie, Princess Bride is one of the best movies ever.

Julie said...

I'm not going to lie... I've never made it through Princess Bride. I always fall asleep. But, the parts that I have seen are pretty funny :)

Jamie said...

Do you expect us to believe you never went through a "New Kids On The Block" phase? Come on!

Julie said...

he he he ... that's funny :)

Katie said...

actually, no, I never went through a NKOTB phase... I had their cassette, but I only knew the 2 main songs (The Right Stuff and Hangin' Tough) and I never owned an "I Love Danny" pin or anything else. Just because I REMEMBER all those things doesn't mean anything... :)
