The Idealistic Daydream

All energy, no meaning, with a lot of words

Important statistics: female, Allegedly Fully Adult, Midwestern, loves animals of all kinds, bibliophile, and addicted to blogging, TV, and diet cola. Obsessive frequenter of garage sales when weather permits.

This journal is largely confined to fandom interests - although I do mention my life from time to time, most frequently in locked posts - which was originally going to be fanfic-centric, and somehow warped into an extensive project of talking about TV. Broadcast network TV, specifically, because I have a strong bias against cable and idolize the FCC rules. Although as of 2015, have been talking as much or more about books and movies instead as my TV time dwindles.

Important notes: I tend to pack a whole lot into each post, which results in borderline ridiculous amounts of text - this bio is an excellent example! As far as the meta goes, I like to write long TV show reviews, sometimes in lists but often in paragraph format. I also like to fill those paragraphs with a lot of CAPSLOCKY GOODNESS, *actions*, and the word "squee" (or "rage," if more appropriate), so as not to be mistaken for a professional writer. Also, I am a desperately fluffy romantic at heart and love to 'ship people. Preferably canon couples, though, and not so much with the slash at all. (Unless they're canon and their names are Kurt and Blaine. Then I ship like whoa.)

You should also know that I lean toward the conservative side, have the opposite of interest in modern feminism or other social activism, and my attitude toward adult material in my fiction can best be described by Kurt Hummel: "I don't want to know the graphic details. I like romance. That's why I like Broadway musicals, because a touch of the fingertips is as sexy as it gets." (I do not, as a rule, actually enjoy most Broadway musicals, but I do enjoy TV best when a kiss is as sexy as it gets for the main characters)

But, um, don't let that turn you away. I make exceptions when it suits me and without logic, and have been trying really hard to keep my Old Man Yells At Cloud side over on Tumblr.

Current shows: Zoo, Survivor, Superstore, The Great Indoors (and sometimes other NBC/CBS comedies), Criminal Minds, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, NCIS, NCIS: LA, and Scorpion. I regularly fall behind on everything.

One full season or more behind on: Law & Order: SVU, 2 Broke Girls, The Middle.

Honorable mentions: Glee will ALWAYS be relevant (seasons 1-5 only), as will Doctor Who (with Nine and Ten only), X-Files (but never ever its revival), The Office, Lost, Numb3rs and Scrubs. Also in my wheelhouse: Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings (movies but NOT The Hobbit), Pirates of the Caribbean (1-3 only), and Twilight (shut up).

If you're curious about other shows, check for them in the tags. I don't really update the "interests" section anymore.
