A meme... look, it's a meme!  
a meme from hondagirll:

Comment on this post with the word THUNDERCATS and I will choose six interests from your profile. You will then explain what they mean/why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

She gave me --

1. Kaley Cuoco - I shipped Sheldon/Penny hard on The Big Bang Theory, and when I ship a couple hard, I tend to follow the actors involved pretty heavily. I watched all of her earlier work and I think she's a really gifted comedian. She comes across like a sweetheart, and while I no longer still watch TBBT, I still smile when I see a picture of her.

2. Serenity - Awesome movie follow-up to Firefly. I thought the movie was AMAZING! And I'm in the small minority that shipped Mal/River, so this movie gave me all the feels in the 'verse in that department. River is my favorite character in the series too, so seeing her so awesomely bad-ass was pretty bad-ass.

3. Washington Capitals - My sister got into Hockey, and this is her team. She dragged me along. I watched a few games to be nice and fell in lust love with the goalie Braden Holtby. I found myself enjoying the game overall, and eventually grew to love the other players (especially 3-time HART TROPHY WINNER! and Caps captain Alex Ovechkin). I follow it pretty closely and actually have watched the game on my laptop (streaming cuz not every game airs on TV) while watching The Vampire Diaries* because I didn't want to miss the game. I'd say that's a pretty good indication how much I love my Caps.

* Of course, I rewatch TVD later, LOL!

4. Stephen Colbert - I don't watch The Colbert Report like I used to, but whenever I catch it, I still love it an dhim. He's a brilliant comedian and just so smart and awesome.

5. Sheldon Cooper - Pretty much similar to answer one. I ship Sheldon/Penny hard. He's the Sheldon of Sheldon/Penny, LOL! Alas, when it became obvious that they would NEVER do S/P and were so stuck on the icky idea of Leonard/Penny AND I stopped laughing while watching the show, I walked away. But whenever I see gifs and stuff, I still laugh and enjoy Sheldon. Cuz he's hilarious.

6. Doctor/Rose - Another couple I ship uber-hard. They're in my top favorite couples of all time. Whether the Ninth or the Tenth Doctor, I don't care, it's Doctor and Rose and I love them. Beautiful love story told against a wonderful show (courtesy of Russell T Davies).

Agreed so much about Doctor Who. Also I stopped watching when RTD left. What I loved especially was how much the producers were shipping Doctor/Rose!

Re : Sheldon/Penny. I may be naive but I'm still holding out hope something will happen between them!

Arabian: Olivia & Fitz01arabian on June 18th, 2013 09:58 pm (UTC)
EVERYONE shipped D/R in cast/crew. It was awesome. Oh, S/P -- I keep an ear out just in case, but, yeah, sigh.

- Agatha Christie
- Casablanca
- Monica/Chandler
- Greek Myth
- Nine/Rose

Thank you!! ^^ I'm going to fix it!

I must have been half asleep when I read your post because I didn't realize I'd have to do it too, lol. You picked interesting interests, heh.

NP. I just happened to notice it. :)
Bogwitch: Meg and Mog - Mog [new]bogwitch on June 18th, 2013 05:25 pm (UTC)
I can't stand Billie Piper, so no Rose for me. Doctor Who I drift in and out of according to who is in it, without investment. They do keep casting people I hate though.

Why Thundercats particularly?

Arabian: Doylearabian on June 18th, 2013 10:01 pm (UTC)
DON'T SAY THAT!!! :*sigh I ADORE Billie Piper. Admittedly, I liked her a lot during DW, but it was Secret Diary of a Call Girl that made me adore her so much, and I've seen just about everything else she's done. She's my 2nd favorite actress of all time. *sigh*

Anyhoo. I have no clue re: Thundercats. I just got it from the meme!

- astronomy
- cats
- depeche mode
- Lord of the Rings
- mythology

Bogwitch: Meg and Mog - Mog [new]bogwitch on June 18th, 2013 10:11 pm (UTC)
Sorry, I've loathed her since her pop career.

You picked some of the less odd interests, I see.

Arabian: GWTWarabian on June 18th, 2013 10:44 pm (UTC)
Nah, I just grabbed the ones that grabbed my interest. :)
Alisha: Dr. Who (Nine/Rose) Smilekalishaka on June 18th, 2013 09:13 pm (UTC)
Kaley Cuoco is forever adorable. Every time I see her face, I'm reminded of when I really loved TBBT....alas. At least I got to keep you out of it. =)

Also, I just want to drown in Doctor/Rose feelings. I miss RTD. I miss loving The Doctor. I miss Rose. I hate that I know the 50th anniversary won't be as good as it could have been. *cries*

Arabian: Billie Piper_07arabian on June 18th, 2013 10:04 pm (UTC)
She really is. Love Kaley.

At least I got to keep you out of it. =)

Yeah. You're literally one of the only people I still have that I met through that fandom. But you're pretty great! (WE MUST TALK THIS WEEKEND!!!)

Also, I just want to drown in Doctor/Rose feelings. I miss RTD. I miss loving The Doctor. I miss Rose. I hate that I know the 50th anniversary won't be as good as it could have been. *cries*

This. Pretty much, yeah, this.

So, I totally made my first journal entry in like two years just to answer this meme....and I might have gone crazy with it. Sorry.

But it was fun to read. :)

THUNDERCATS!

Agree with everything you said about 1, 5, and 6. Not surprising at all. We usually agree on things. :) I haven't seen Firefly or Serenity yet. It's on my bucket list though.

STEPHEN COLBERT FTW ALWAYS. <3

Also, Kaley Cuoco is adorable, although I've only seen her on TBBT (which sucks so bad nowadays I've stopped watching, as seems to be the case with you.

THUNDERCATS because I need to get back into fandom more.

(And I love Ten/Rose- although I haven't finished DW, I'm only on s2- but Nine/Rose is just gah.)
Arabian: Feelings Journalarabian on June 21st, 2013 05:14 am (UTC)
She was SO good in the sitcom she did with John Ritter. And it was funny because she had these long, rambling batches of dialogue like Jim does for TBBT, but hers wasn't science, but OTT girly-girl gossip/clothes/fashion stuff, but she was awesome at it. SUCH great comic timing.

I've never watched TBBT, but whenever I come across Sheldon gifs, they are always hilarious, even on their own ^^

THUNDERCATS because my list of memes I'm supposed to do isn't long enough yet lol
