The Idealistic Daydream

All energy, no meaning, with a lot of words

Rating position

Important statistics: female, late 20s, 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. Originally concentrated on procedural shows, comedies and serials making serious inroads. Most friends I make are random people I found via search engines whose writing style and/or topics I happen to admire.

Important notes: I don't post as often anymore, but when I do 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). 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 no matter how carefully I revise before posting, I have a knack for getting myself into trouble with my more opinionated thoughts on controversial issues, mostly stemming from the fact that I hate change, love[d] President Bush, 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 chaste 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.

Current shows: NCIS, Criminal Minds, Stalker, Law & Order: SVU, Under the Dome, 2 Broke Girls, Community, The Mindy Project, and Survivor. Some I talk about/stay caught up on more than others.

Held in suspended animation, waiting for me to catch up (check each one's tag for last mention): Sleepy Hollow, Reign, Castle, and Grey's Anatomy

Honorable mentions: Glee will ALWAYS be relevant (seasons 1-5 only), as will Doctor Who (with Nine and Ten only), X-Files, The Office, Lost, Numb3rs and Scrubs. Also in my wheelhouse: Harry Potter.

Once I pick up a series I tend to stick with it until the end of time, but after it gets canceled it doesn't get a lot of mention in the journal - if you're curious about past shows, check for them in the tags. I don't really update the "interests" section anymore.
