10 Signs That I Might Be A Fanboy

Well, fangirl. Close enough.
Recently I had someone over to my house who was seeing it for the first time. Their comment was something along the lines of my house being what he expected and a fairly typical Fanboy kind of house. Now I like a lot of weird shit and I have collectables (also known as "junk") but I would never have come right out and classed myself in with THAT group. It did however get me thinking.

1. One of my most prized possessions is a Franklin mint model of the NCC-1701.

2. One of the best presents I've ever received - The red Swingline stapler from Office Space.

3. There are collectables from at least ten different movies and shows in my living room alone.

4. This has been the background on my computer for about four months already. Before that, it was this.

5. My last three Facebook status updates have been obscure references that no one should get, really.

6. Some people collect stamps. I collect movie posters.

7. I get positively giddy whenever I see anything related to the new Hellboy movie and I have people who will back me up on that.

8. I'm really worried that they cast Seth McFarlane as Johann because I love Johann and if Seth fucks it up it may very well ruin the whole movie for me.

9. I often tell people that "i'll be there with bells on, you'll love me in bells". No one yet has caught the reference.

10. I have read and laughed at this.

I'm starting to think my friend may have a point.
But I'm a cool nerd, right?

Nothing wrong with being a fangirl. And the buzz is that Seth McFarlane did a good job as Johann - I was worried about that, too. I was also annoyed that David Hyde Pierce didn't remain as Abe's voice, but I'm glad that Doug Jones is getting to act more, too.

Damn, already answered this on FB. You know I'm right there with ya.

You're a cool something.

Hey, at least you don't read textbooks for fun, right?

Blue - Thanks! Wait... are you laughing AT me or WITH me?

Av - I really hope so man, because I was really worried about having to listen to Johann sound like Stewie for two hours. I'm kind of torn on the Abe thing. I mean DHP did a really good job with that voice over the first time. But by that same token I really Love Doug Jones and I was a little sad that they did just let him do the part in the first place. (Doug, BTW did the voice of Abe for all the animated Hellboy stuff.)

Robin - Oh, I know you are and I love you for it.

Nikki - This is true. ;)

I was hoping to see Hellboy at midnight tonight, but since I am currently spewing (TMI,right?) I don't think I'll make it. I am a fangirl-name your poison....comics, movies, Buffy,Firefly....just not into the Trek (sorry)

You are DA COOLEST!!! Next to me.

You have a model of the NCC-1701???


Janna said...

Oh, and by the way, I'm linking to you in tomorrow's post. :)

MM - That's okay, you don't have to dig on the Trek, you said the magic word - Firefly. And I would never presume to be as cool as the Mother of Metal.

Janna - I totally do, it's the awesomest thing EVER! And a link? For me? SWEET!
