Thoughts: I’ve maybe seen one or two episodes of Julia, so I’m not sure how accurate this is. But I love family and I like the caregiver-ness. And, hey, it’s nice to be groundbreaking!
Quiz: Which Cult Film Are You?
Answer: You are Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory!
You’re a visionary and an idealist. You have grandiose dreams of making the world a better place. But in order to do so, you have to test who will be part of your team… and if they don’t have what it takes… OUT!
Thoughts: I have never been and will never be called an idealist. I do have dreams and goals, but they’re only necessary to keep me from being lazy. I definitely fit the second half of the description, though. And I’m pretty crazy, just like this film. I’ve been known to break into song and binge on candy, so that’s pretty accurate.
Here’s a spot for socks without matches to find a most important home: with house elves.
This was another craft inspired by several different versions I saw on Pinterest. I made this for a swap, but I also wanted to make one for my local Harry Potter group because we’re having a tea in honor of Dobby (and his tea cozy). But I made mine more general for any house elf that needs freeing.

My parents worked their butts off for months and now I have a beautiful new floor in my basement. This means I could finally start moving all my bookcases and books from my parents’ house to my new home library.
Three of my best friends came over this past weekend to help me catalog my enormous Mt. To Be Read and to start sorting through my books. The good news is that I now have more than 7 boxes of books I’m giving away or BookCrossing. The less good news… I have to fit the other 63 boxes of books on my bookcases somehow (and that doesn’t include a few crates of audiobooks). The only two bookcases completely done at this point are, as you might have guessed, my fandom bookcase and my graphic novel/manga bookcase.
Of course, I have many of the fandoms you might expect on my fandom bookcase: Harry Potter*, Lord of the Rings*, Buffy & Angel, Star Wars, Star Trek*, Doctor Who, etc. But here’s a list of a few fandoms you might not expect to see represented on my fandom bookcase.
* Not all of the books in these fandoms fit on the fandom bookcase and had to spill out into other bookcases such as the series bookcase or one of my TBR bookcases.
I just realized I’ve skipped a couple posts here on my fangirl project blog. Sorry about that! I’m hoping to schedule enough ahead to get me through my upcoming surgery. I don’t know that I’ll feel up to posting while I’m recuperating.
On a happy note, I finally got subscriptions set up here. So if receiving email notifications of posts on this blog is what you’ve been waiting for all this time, then go right ahead and subscribe!
Not exactly a fandom, but September 19 is Talk Like a Pirate Day and Pirates of the Carribean is one of my fandoms, so I’m counting this (especially as I don’t think I ever got a photo of the Captain Sparrow license plate that used to be in my old neighborhood–on a black car).
This one is just so much fun to say!
And, yes, September 19 is also Hermione’s birthday, but I just did a Harry Potter one in July, so I’m going for some variety here.
People who know me know I like to sort people I meet into Hogwarts Houses. I can’t do it with all people, but some people give off pretty strong indicators. I do the same thing with fictional characters.
I thought it would be fun to come up with 10 characters I sort into particular houses. And, as I’m a Hufflepuff, I thought I’d start with my favorite house. I thus give you ten characters I usually sort into Hufflepuff:
This is one of many historical buildings I found during my trip to Denver, Colorado in 2010. This victorian style building is the Union Warehouse, now called the Hotel Barth. It was built in 1882 and added to the National Register of Historic Places one hundred years later on June 3, 1982.
Thoughts: Okay, I would have thought Emmet was too brave to be my result. But the description here actually fits me just fine I’m okay with this. I don’t really want to be popular, but I do want to be liked. so that’s close. I do really love following directions. If I had to choose a character I’m closest to… I’d probably have to choose Mrs. Scratchen-Post. LOL
