I’ve lost my marbles check
I am packing my bags to get ready for Tartan Week and by packing my bags I mean I bought a scarf, a pair of boots and the newest cover edition to Dragonfly in Amber and looked at my carry on luggage.
That’s when this thought crossed my mind wtf am I doing? I am a grown woman fangirling like it is the 90’s. Actually I wasn’t this bad back then.
I fluctuated crushes between Donnie Wahlberg and Christian Slater. I can still feel the sting of the thrown pillow at my face from my brother when I yelled “Christian Slater” when he had a cameo in a Star trek movie. That’s the last time I can remember going a little nuts over someone on TV. And as always confession time…while I was looking for pics of these two they are still pretty swoon worthy! Just for kicks I also listened to my favorite NKOTB song. Tonight
Back to the here and now crazy. In the throes of my adolescent years I would never have gotten over the moon excited over anything but this is totally me since Sam Heughan arrived as Jamie Fraser.
How do you fan girl?
Can you quote every line from every episode?
Watched every video on YouTube that Sam has appeared in?
Have a Sam Heughan ringtone? “say it with me, Sassenach”
Here is a list of things I have noticed about myself.
Posters on the wall check
Outlander collection check
Magazines that I normally wouldn’t buy check
Phone lock screen of Sam check
DVR programmed for upcoming show appearances check
Tickets to New York check
Scrolling through twitter at midnight to see where the Eagle has landed (yes, when new Sam pics post I have to say.. “The EAGLE has landed” in Australia, Japan, the cover of TV Guide) check
Memories of when Sam walked by me that are recalled with him being captivated by my unearthly beauty that he was forced to keep walking and ignore me or he would be doomed for life because I’m happily married and could never leave and the pain THE PAIN (said in a shaky voice) of living without me was too much check
Practicing my whisky sipping skills or even wine because the fandom gods may have Tobias walk by and see the way I sip wine and he will fall hopelessly in love with me and I’ll have to cash in on my celebrity pass 😉 because I totally have a crush on Tobias Menzies and my awesome husband will completely understand
“Ouch” he totally threw a pillow at me, guess I’ll pass on the wine sipping.
I’ve got to admit fangirling at an older age is way more fun! check
