It’s Friday! I made it, I trudged through grant applications, chased down lawyers for interviews and wrote handfuls of essays on myself and my story. And today I get to relax, after posting this I plan on going home, drinking tea and reading the day away. I want to give a quick thanks to all of those on Twitter who have been voting in my polls for Macabre Mondays. Next weeks post I will tell you all about one of my favorite haunted spots in my city. And a bit about what makes Victoria one of the most haunted places in British Columbia, and possibly Canada – if I’m not mistaken. If you don’t already follow me on twitter you can find all of that info on my About page!
Five Fandoms I Couldn’t Get Into

The Hobbit Movies – While I loved the book, I just could not get through even the first one! And as a Tolkien fan, and having the Hobbit as probably one of the first traditional fantasy books I ever read, this was very disappointing to me. However I am stubborn and probably will try at least once a year to watch them.
Arrested Development – I have seen most of this show. I do not like most of this show. While it has some moments that definitely do make me giggle, I just could care less about the characters. So when Netflix came out of left field with the new season, I just let everyone watch and gush and then I watched Buffy again.
The Walking Dead – Now I used to watch this. And I’m not sure my exact reasoning behind my falling out with this show. It could be because it was a show I watched with an ex-partner every week. It could be because I fell behind. It could also be the fact that it was the same story every season, every week, and I got bored. I felt no connections with these characters, I just didn’t care abot them. But yes, Daryl is sexy – because Norman Reedus is sexy. But if I need a fix I would much rather watch The Boondock Saints (the original one, don’t even get me started on the sequel)
Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D. (or any other Marvel Show) – I wanted to like this, I wanted to watch it. I love the Marvel films. But I’m not as invested in the Marvel Universe as I am DC. I’m a DC girl. And DC has an amazing TV lineup. I haven’t seen Daredevil, I only watched a few episodes of Jessica Jones, and even though I’m in love with the 40s I haven’t seen Agent Carter. Maybe one day, but I just haven’t got there yet.
Orange is the New Black – I read the book, I liked the book. I watched the first few episodes and it never held my interest enough for me to keep watching.
What are your 5 fandoms you couldn’t get into? Do you blog or use another platform to answer the 5 Fandom Friday? If so leave me a link in the comments! I’m also thinking of doing a re-watch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and maybe doing a multi-platform watch along. Here, on Twitter and Instagram. I’d love your thoughts on that! Stay spooky!
