I was tagged by Ceci for this meme…
1. Post these rules.
2. Each tagged person must post 8 things about themselves in their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 8 people.
1. I have been absolutely obsessed with headbands lately. Totally the influence of Miss Blair Waldorf.
2. I’ve never had anything “done” to my hair besides a cut — no perms, coloring, highlights, etc.
3. I adore the holiday season. My “holiday season” starts in October with my birthday… it’s like a triple whammy with my bday, then Thanksgiving, and finally Christmas. Love it.
4. My favorite lunch pastime (when I can sneak out of the office, that is) is to walk over to Union Square and do some window shopping at H&M and Sephora.
5. I would LOVE to spend my 30th birthday in Paris. *sigh*
6. I haven’t worked out regularly since the wedding. F to me.
7. I recently discovered the show What Not to Wear on TLC and it promptly went on my Tivo season pass list. 😀
8. I’m currently obsessed with tart frozen yogurt. YUMMY.
Everyone should do the meme (not going to officially tag anyone)!
Also, a TV meme that I stole from Jen…
Name a show you can’t miss:
Gossip Girl, Chuck, Supernatural.
Name an actor who would make you more inclined to watch a show:
Hahahaha. Joshua Jackson. That’s what happened with Fringe. I’m not entirely sure I would have been so interested in the show if he wasn’t cast. Love him. I would also follow Emily Van Camp anywhere. Before she was on Brothers and Sisters, I only watched the show when I remembered it was on. Once I heard she was cast, I started watching it regularly so I could figure out how her character would play into the storylines. That’s when I discovered how great a show it is and I was totally missing out even without her in it. I’d probably also be more likely to watch a show if Leighton Meester was in it — she rocks.
Name an actor who would make you less likely to watch a show:
??? Can’t think of anyone really…
Name a show you can and do quote from:
Dawsons Creek. Heh.
Name a show you would recommend everyone to watch:
CHUCK!!! Monday nights. NBC. Be there. Also, Privileged needs some love too.
Name a TV series you own on DVD:
I’m a DVD whore. Seriously. I have so many. Let’s see… Felicity, Friday Night Lights, One Tree Hill, Dawson’s Creek, CSI, Brothers and Sisters, Gilmore Girls, Heroes, Lost, Friends, Sex and the City, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Everwood, 90210, Smallville, Alias, 24, The OC, Roswell, Firefly, Veronica Mars.. etc etc.
Name an actor who launched his/her entertainment career in another medium but who has surprised you with his/her acting chops in television:
Rebecca Romijn (models turned actors are not usually so good)
What is your favorite episode of your favorite series?
“True Love,” Dawson’s Creek
“The Gift,” Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Name a show you keep meaning to watch but you just haven’t gotten around to yet:
Rome (I promised my best friend Carmen I would give it another shot). The Tudors (I’ve had disc 2 of season 1 from Netflix for months now). The Office. How I Met Your Mother.
Ever quit watching a show because it was so bad?
Not really. Once I get into a show and connect with the characters, I’m hooked until the bitter end (unless I just get bored like I did with Ugly Betty). I contemplated giving up on Alias (after the season 2 finale) and One Tree Hill (in season 2 when Anna and Felix arrived and then again in season 4 with Haley’s pregnancy) but I was (am) too invested in the characters.
Name a show that’s made you cry multiple times:
Everwood. I cried when bad things happened. And when good things happened. That show really got to me. Gawd, it was good.
How often do you watch TV?
Uhhh. Every day. 🙂
What’s your favorite/preferred genre of TV?
I’m drawn mostly to (teen) dramas (Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, etc). But I also enjoy the secret identity/spy/superhero type of shows, like Buffy, Chuck, Alias, Reaper, Heroes.
What was the first TV show you were obsessed with?
Beverly Hills 90210. I was only 10/5th grade when it premiered so I wasn’t supposed to be watching it but I did. I was so obsessed that I used to horde my money to buy BOP and Teen Beat so I could tear out the pictures of Jason Priestly. Heh.
What TV show do you wish you never watched?
Reality shows like the ones on MTV and VH1… My Sweet Sixteen, Flavor of Love, I Love New York, etc. I don’t actually sit down and watch these shows but even seeing a glimpse while flipping channels drives me crazy.
What is the weirdest show you enjoyed?
I enjoy a lot of random shows but they’re not really weird… Say Yes to the Dress (I cannot stop watching this — I still love looking at wedding dresses), Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, Ace of Cakes, The Rachel Zoe Project.
What TV show scared you the most?
I get scared EASILY so I tend not to watch shows that would freak me out. But serial killer storylines always get me, like the Carver storyline on Nip/Tuck and the Blue Paint Killer on CSI. ((shivers))
What is the funniest TV show you have ever watched?
I’m not a huge fan of sitcoms. I don’t know why. But I always used to laugh out loud at Friends. ??? Sorry, I’m lame.
Do you prefer TV to films?
TV. I love following my favorite characters week after week.
Name current TV relationships that you love.
Blair/Serena, Gossip Girl. They are so dysfunctional. I adore them.
Nathan/Haley, One Tree Hill.
