Honeybunch said something very wise last night regarding the entire ladyanabelle
I've been keeping my mouth firmly shut about it, since he gets upset when I spend too much time playing on the 'net now or if I get upset at fandom goings on (did you know myeloblastomas are exacerbated by stress *snort*). Yeah, I know, I shouldn't let it get to me, but sometimes it does.
I'm explaining this to him, and comparing the HP fandom to SW or LOTR or Star Trek, who have more than their fair share of nutters. I look upon the HP fandom as a more 'mainstream' fandom - a lot of people here have kids, spouses, and lead fairly 'normal' lives. Not many Comic Book Guys, if you catch my drift. And the HP fandom is pretty young in comparison.
"Well, you need to start paying more attention to people," says Honeybunch.
"Oh yeah, but..." I go into my 'people in this fandom are expected to be somewhat genuine' speech.
"But it's slowly developing the same way those other fandoms did, I'm sure. More people, more websites, more anonymity to be whoever you want."
And damn it, he's right. And here I am hoping this would be a one-off. It wasn't. It won't be. *chants Constant Vigilance!*
Oh, and myeloblastoma? That's what I have - smooth muscle tumor - growing in my abdomen at the moment. They are 99% sure it's not cancerous ( but that's what they told my cousin )
so yeah, we'll wait and see. I see the surgeon on Monday and maybe, just maybe, I can be in for surgery before heading to Grand Assembly with my girls on July 8. I'm not holding my breath though. But hooray for progress anyway.
Am taking the girls to see PoA on Friday :> I so only asked them, and they all wanted to go! *grins* Went to the IMAX showing on Monday with ishie
and her friend Maryann. Much fangirliness was had, IMAX v. awesome. I have figured out that I lust (and I'm using the term very loosely here) for Dan only when he's Harry. This is normal and good, yes? Glasses off = no good. Glasses on = oh yeah. < /random thought of the day>
