while i was researching sweeney todd (because that is how i roll, and i just got the pbs concert version from 2001 for the one reason that it stars....wait for it....nph) since i don't know anything about it (the musical) beyond meat pies and barbering, i discovered that nph had done a rifftrax (downloadable vocal tracks done by the guy who invented mst3k) for willie wonka and the chocolate factory.  the old good one with gene wilder not the new mediocre one with johnny depp.  so i bought it.  for only $2.99, i can haz nph making me laugh whenever i want. 

i think this may be nearly the most nerdy, fannish, obsessive thing i've ever done.  but i know i can tell you, dear flist, and you will only nod understandingly because you've done something like that too.  right?  feel free to mention your most fannish, nerdy, obsessive moment so i won't feel so alone. *whimpers*

You're definitely not alone! I've probably spent more money on Angel DVDs to up my DB quota than I have on books this term. (And that plummeting sound would be me dropping out of Uni any day now... *g*) So yeah, not alone in the nerdy fannishness.

Not to mention *ahem* 250k+ words of fanfic to date *ahem*. Exams, schmexams. :)

oh bertie
i guess you win with 250k words worth <--wordsworth! of fic but i've got the entire whedon oeuvre on disc....i waited patiently for the angel boxset to be released this year in the states. you lucky brits had it way before we did. and i have the buffy boxset and the firefly. but i guess dropping out of uni to pay for you fannishness, i think maybe you win there too!

i shall look for your fic, m'dear. i always need more fic in my life....

Reading the word 'oeuvre' this morning made me strangely happy... I'd give you a vocab high-five, but we don't really know each other that well yet and I'm worried about scaring you off. *settles for an impressed vocab nod*

you lucky brits had it way before we did.
True, but Angel was never shown fully on terrestrial (free) TV. Box sets are needed for the poor people (ie me) who didn't have Sky a few years ago. :D Still, awesome amount of DVDs you have there...

oh i'll take that vocab high five and gladly. my years in uni (as you so sweetly and quaintly call it) are long behind me, but i still try to keep up with the linguistic hoi polloi. ;-) you could never scare me off with language fun!

as for angel, you truly have my deepest sympathy on not having it on terrestrial tv. i forget, living in the land of plenty (plenty o' crap!) as i do, that not everyone is as videollacly (<--hmm? check me out!) blessed.

never believe it!
oh oh oh i'm still gushy about doctor who i am. just a little more quietly since i fell in love with nph. you know how it goes. but i still have major squee over who...this season has been spectacular. the pompeii ep blew my mind and the last double parter was awesome. so i'm still here.....
