I don’t even know if that’s a word.

Well, now it is a word, because I can do that. It’s my doctoral privilege.

Fangirling – v. To act of obsessing – nay, fawning – over a celebrity that you will probably never meet. A term that may only be applied to women.

I will be fangirling a little later on tonight. I suppose I’m a little old for that, but hey. I’m old. I’m not dead.

About whom is my obsession? I’ve mentioned him once or twice:

Joe Carroll.

Ok, actually Joe Carroll is the character. The real man is named James Purefoy.

I must admit that I will watch anything that features James Purefoy. I’ll fangirl pretty severely. (Sorry husband.)

I started watching this TV show called The Following. Maybe you’ve heard of it.

I started watching it because of James Purefoy. Of course, after one episode, I was hooked on the series, too.

That’s a big deal for me. Seriously.

I don’t watch network TV. Commercials annoy me too much. And most television assumes… well, I just find myself yelling at the television because some TV is so not intellectually sound.

But I like The Following.

And tonight is the season two premiere. And I’m still awake, despite a really long day, waiting for this football game to end, so that I can watch the premiere.



Hey Joe! I’ll follow you!

One thought on “Fangirling

  1. It’s the best time to make some plans for the
    future and it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I
    could I wish to suggest you few interesting things or advice.

    Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article.
    I desire to read even more things about it!
