Confessional

I'm failing in/falling short of/losing sight of/ignoring/blowing off my goal to read 40 books this year.

I'm just not that into it. I can't be arsed to bother.

Especially not after I caught the Torchwood bug.

Instead, I'm spending a hell of a lot of time here.

(Yes, I have discovered Fan Fiction.)

Right now I'm so absorbed in the stories of other Torchwood fans that my reading goal is the last thing on my mind.

In my defense, I am reading a TON of longer fics on that site. I'm sure I've read at least three full-length novels worth of FanFic. (One story alone is well over 75 chapters long...and I'm on my second reading of it as it was that yummy.) (Shut up. I told you. I. Am. Obsessed.)

Also? I've ordered three of the Torchwood books and one of the radio plays from Amazon.

Can anyone say FanGirl?

GAH!

Here's another clip for those of you interested:

My Torchwood confession?
For me, it's all about Captain Jack.
*sigh*
How old am I, again? Suddenly, I feel 14 :-)

Haven't had a chance to watch Torchwood...but the last lines of the trailer about "It's the end of the world and I still want....." I only like sci-fi if there's some humor in it.

Have you been playing with Blogger in Draft? Lurv, lurv, lurv your new blog design. Awesome job, Tuli FanGirl!

It would be unfair to talk to you about Torchwood, since we're so far ahead all I could give you would be spoilers.

Enjoy. I wish I had it all to look forward to. There's no shame in fangirlerie, in my opinion.
