Meme!

jaysta_11 hit me with a fun meme...

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.


She gave me:
1. Staals
2. Olympic swimmers
3. Harry Potter
4. Edward Cullen
5. Jackson Rathbone



1. Staals. Oh, where to begin? I liked Eric first, obviously, ever since the 'Canes won the Cup. Then I learned there were more of them and eventually the Pens drafted Jordan & it's been snowballing from there. Jordan is my favorite, Eric close behind...then Marc and finally Jared since I know next to nothing about him. The best part of the whole thing is my mom *hates* the Staals. Her hate started when my *coughobsessioncough* started...she constantly complained during Carolina's Cup run that Eric was too "cocky". IDK, I didn't see it, but she was chagrined to find out there were more & even more chagrined that Jordan is my fave Penguin. She is praying they trade him; if they do, her Sid FatHead might find itself with a beard, courtesy of my giant black Sharpie. I could babble on & on & on about this one, but I'll stop here.

2. Olympic swimmers. World-class swimming is my fave sport behind hockey. I loooove going to swim meets in Indianapolis (World Champ Trials in July, baby! I've had my tix since October). (I also loooove the smell of chlorine, but that's another story.) I can't swim, so I'm always astounded that they can swim soooo fast. Oh, and the hot bodies don't hurt, either. I've met the notorious Mr. Phelps and contrary to reports that he's a douche, he was very nice & EXTREMELY polite & didn't seem to be bothered signing at all. I've also met Gold medallists Natalie Coughlin & Kaitlyn Sandeno, they're total rock stars. My favorite swimmers are Eric Shanteau (oh, and thanks for this, young Mr. Shanteau), Aaron Peirsol (*sigh*) and my most favorite, Peter Vanderkaay (I totally stood behind him in line at Chik-fil-A after a swim meet. Dude is MASSIVE. I was too chicken-shit to say anything to him cause I'm lame that way. Anyhoo, I've followed his career since he was a wee little freshman @ Michigan. I totally cried when he got his first individual Olympic medal last summer. So did he. Awww!).

3. Harry Potter. I'm a totally HP nerd. I've read each book more times than I can count, and I don't even want to think how many times I've seen the movies. My fave book is Order of the Phoenix, which I know isn't a popular opinion. Sirius' death and Harry's reaction to it kill me every time. And I start crying about 7 pages into Deathly Hallows and don't stop until I'm finished with it. I cry just *thinking* about the scene where Harry goes into the forest. *sniffles* My favorite chracters are the Weasley twins (I still need to hunt down JKR for what she did to them, argh!), Neville Longbottom, Sirius Black & Luna Lovegood. Very little love for Hermione, though.

4. Edward Cullen. Okay, against my better judgement, I'm a closet Twi-tard. I KNOW the books are horridly written, but damn, they just draw me in. (Except for Breaking Dawn, which I maintain is the shiteous piece of shit ever written.) I'm one of those Twilight people who enjoys making fun of the series even more than I enjoy the series itself. Oh, and I absolutely hate Edward freaking Cullen (Bella & Jacob, too). HE'S SMeyer's dream guy? He's a creepy ol' stalker perv with anger issues! (Though I do find his obsession with his virtue hysterical.) And I HATED the casting of Edward in the movie...how dare they mess with ~Cedric~! But OMG RPattz's facial expressions and Sparkle!Vision! cracked my shit up.

5. Jackson Rathbone. Didn't have a clue who he was till he was cast as Jasper (my co-fave vamp from Twilight). Wasn't impressed with what they did with him as Jasper in the movie, other than his ninja-baseball skillz. I just think he's pretty. He's got the most gorgeous green eyes I've ever seen. But I have a sneaking suspicion he's rather lax about personal hygiene. Oh well, can't win 'em all...



If you want to do the meme, just let me know in comments :)

I'd never heard of that song til you & someone else (jaysta_11 maybe?) put it on their hockey meme as fave hockey song, lol. So I downloaded it off of iTunes & I love it :)

HP nerd? *high fives* My friends don't even understand the awesome-ness of HP because they just watch the movies. And all your fav chracters... are almost the same as mine <3 Only I've loved Snape since book 1 and have no idea why XD

And yeah... and your Twilight-ness is right on, lol. I used to love them but now, eesh, idk.

And if you can come up with 5 for me, I'll do it :D

HARRY POTTER, OMG!!! I know what you mean, though...my mom loooooves the movies but she gets confused (and & get irritated) because they change stuff & then things don't make sense, so I'm constantly "Well, in the books...." I told her to just read them, she reads all the time, but she thinks she'd get too confused after seeing the movies, and is afraid they're too "long & involved". Sheesh.

I think Alice & Jasper's story is more interesting than Edward & Bella's. I love A & J and all the Cullens except Edward...everyone else in the books can GTFO.

I *totally* won't cheat & will give you a list of 5 without using Harry Potter or Twilight :P (YAY, go me!)
1. Keith Urban
2. Sidney Crosby
3. music
4. books
5. NHL Western Conference cuties (lol)

My mom is the same! I've told her over and over to read the books, it makes more sense. And she won't because she said "if the movies confuse her, she'll get lost in the books" I try and explain things but I'm an fail at explaining things and I end up making it worse, ha.

I used to love Edward too. I don't understand why anymore AND I haven't even read the last book! And Alice is more interesting anyway. And I pretty much HATE all the werewolfs.

lol! Awesome, I'll get to it later

OMG YES!!! TANGER!!!!

Did you see there was an article linked on the Pens' website titled "Bylsma says he's a 'huge fan' of Letang" or something like that? Riiiiiiiiiiiight...

I eep'd when I saw they traded Whit. NGL, I was a bit relieved it wasn't Staal (yet anyway).

Totally know what you mean about HP. I think I know 3 people in real life that have read the books...and tons that have just seen the movies. And they'll say I'm wrong about something because "it wasn't like that in the movie" and I get all flipped out and tell them to crack the damn books. Geez.

OMG I don't see how SMeyer got a book deal. The idea was good, but the execution was...very amateurish. I lol'd all the way thru Breaking Dawn. Then returned my copy to Border's for a full refund :) They said a lot of people did that, lol.

I can def think of 5 for you (and I'm not even going to cheat & use HP or Twilight!):
1. writing fanfic
2. Dallas Mavericks
3. Steve Nash
4. music
5. Colby Armstrong
