Actually, I have no real idea why I have LJ. But then when I'm bored I do strange things. And nope, don't actually expect anyone to read this, but it's now around 4am and I'm a little bored and feeling random as I can't sleep. Again.
One thing to know now, I live by the quote 'growing old is compulsory, growing up is voluntary'. I may be old enough to know better, but that's not going to stop me.
So why do I have this LJ account? Honestly, a new obsession for me that led to deciding to actually create an account... What obsession, well...
Late last year my dear friend knew I was looking for something new to watch to pass time before I moved and started uni again. So, he gave me the first two series of Torchwood. I then went and found the 3rd. At which point I looked into the storyline because a few things didn't make complete sense, only to discover the show was a spin-off. So, being the curious and at the time rather bored individual, I wandered off and found the new Doctor Who series, and picking up from episode one watched all the way through to the end of series 5. And did so in a fairly short space of time. I fell in love with the Doctor and especially the Doctor and Rose.
So what does that have to do with LJ? Well, I was reading fics about the 'ship and discovered some great LJ communities out there for Doctor Who and specifically for the Doctor and Rose. So here I am, with a LJ account, just so I can join in some of the discussions. Who knows, maybe one day I'll write a fic, but it seems a little unlikely. That requires concetration and ome vague originality, which I feel I tend to lack these days.
Things I obsess over, or at the very least enjoy immensly (I can't say much in real life cause it's rather dull these days) include:
TV - Doctor Who, Torchwood, pretty much anything by Joss Whedon (Buffy, Angel, Firefly/Serenity, Dollhouse), Fringe, Castle, Bones, True Blood, Dark Angel, Futurama, Dexter, Black Books, Sanctuary, Daria, Red Dwarf, Pushing Daisies... Erm, stopping there.
Movies - Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Disney movies (too many to name favourites), original Star Wars, Willow, 300, V for Vendetta, The Nightmare before Christmas, The Corpse Bride, Pirates of the Caribbean. Ok, cutting that off too, be here forever otherwise.
Books - Terry Pratchett (Discworld), Lord of the Rings, Robin Hobb, Jennifer Fallon, Sara Douglass, Anne Bishop, Harry Potter, and I'm forgetting the names of authors right now, that'll have to do.
Anything else to know.... I'm a uni student, studying teaching (in theory anyway). I live with a friend who is more like a brother. I have a pet dog, but unfortunately for me, he lives with my parents right now. That'll do.
