Asta 2

Thank God for Long Weekends

...makes me feel less guilty about wasting time. Though, does shopping really constitute a waste of time?

A belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Miss Scarlett who as a twenty year old has already begun to complain about those damn teenagers. :P

I see the meme of the day is fav book/movie/TV ships. I don't usually participate in these things, but I figured it would be fun to list my favs - take a walk down memory lane.



Mulder and Scully - Like writteninstars, I had no clue what a shipper was or that I was one. Actually, for the longest time I thought The X-Files had a huge boating enthusiast following. :p

Dave and Maddie and Joel and Maggie - OK, apparently having the leads 'do it' CAN ruin a show. I loved Moonlighting and Northern Exposure until - in one case literally - the characters took a role in the hay. Throw in a horrible pregnancy storyline on Moonlighting and say goodbye classic, hello crap. :(

Mason and Julia - Lane Davies and Nancy Grahn created one of the best couplings to ever grace the soap world. They were smart, sexy, funny, snarky and could actually act! I was thriiled to see them paired up again on General Hospital until the current crapfest on the show took over. I can only assume Lane is off doing Shakespeare as he did during his summers on Santa Barbara. Lucky for him, unfortunate for us.

Beatrice and Benedict - My fav Shakespeare coupling who actually lived happily ever after!

Buffy and Spike - Nuff' said.

Sydney and Vaughn - Alias is my heir apparent to my Buffy obsession, largely because of these two. Of course, like Joss, JJ has to bring on the angst...bring them together then rip them apart.

John and Aeryn - I swear, I think their relationship on Farscape had my stomach in more nots then Spike and Buffy ever did. If it wasn't some outside force keeping them apart, their own fears and insecurities succeeded quite nicely. In the end, well, I'm forgetting the very end, the last two minutes never happened, they lived happily ever after. :p

Nick and Nora Charles...and their little dog too ;) - Take away the excessive drinking and I wouldn't mind a man like Nick Charles - smart, funny, good hearted, and adores his wife. They showed me that a married couple could be in love and happy without becoming boring or taking life too seriously. :)

ETA: I found a bookstore that carries SFX magazine! It looks like they just got the June issue in, the July one is the Buffy extraveganza. At least I know where to look now. I can't afford any more magazine subscriptions.

Damn teenagers. Menaces to society! ;)

I love Nick and Nora Charles. If I ever get married, I want to be in a marriage like that one.
Ahhhh, Beatrice and Benedict. I take as much pleasure in their relationship as I would take upon a knife's point. Oh, okay, I take much more pleasure in it than that. I love those two.
You've gone and named most of my fave ships, Asta :) I so agree about David and Maddie, and Joel and Maggie, especially the latter couple. They were so much more interesting as bickering friends with UST.

Totally love Nick and Nora Charles, and a certain wire-haired Fox Terrier :) - the interesting thing about them is we never saw their courtship, how they got together, just the result, which is perhaps why they're so successful - we never got a chance to get bored watching them be happy ;)

I'd have to add Sam and Diane as another "doin'it" lead that ruined a show. At least in my opinion.

I've 'shipped before, but never really *shipped* until Michael and Nikita. OMG!! They were the first to put me through more twists, turns, acid indigestion moments and heartache.

Love Beatrice and Benedict too. As well as C.K. Dexter Haven and Amanda. Sans the alcohol, the Nick and Nora marriage is the one I've always wanted. Love, snark, and nothing the one wouldn't do for the other. Guess that's a running theme with these three couples. I'm throwing Buffy and Spike of season seven in this group as well, I don't care what Joss says. hah!

Mine too, baby.

And I never really warmed up to Rebecca and Sam even though at the time, I loved Kirstie Alley.

Not in my book. Does reading hours and hours of fanfic count as a waste of time? Yeah, yeah. I know, but I had to try, didn't I?

John and Aeryn

I can't believe I forgot them. Bad Crystal. But unlike you, I never felt for them like I did Buffy and Spike.

If you pick up a copy for me, I will gladly repay you on Tuesday. Or, y'know whenever. :p

I will gladly pick you up a copy sweetie. :) They had at least six copies in pristine condition so I'm assuming they just got them in. I'm marking down the date so I know to check again in a month. Yes, I am that obsessive.

I forgot about Sam and Diane, though I kind of felt that was a forgone conclusion. But, that reminds me of Joe and Helen on Wings. I was always rooting for them to get together. Probably the only coupling I've ever watched with practicaly no angst. :p

We are so the same person. I rooted for them too, but also with no angst. :-)

The practice kiss where Helen acted like it was no big deal and then he walks away and she pours the ice water down her shirt? Loved that scene. Set the whole tone for their future relationship.
