My best friend and I were chatting on Gmail the other day. We both ended up in tears. From laughing.
Me: Apparently there is a fan base for Wholockians.
Sara: No. ::headdesk::
Me: It’s awesome. Why are you ::headdesking::?
Sara: Because it’s ridiculously specific. That’s like calling myself a Narniring
Me: It’s two fan bases coming together. Who cares how specific it is. You make no sense
Sara: You make no sense!
Sara: “Two fan bases coming together”?
Thinking she didn’t understand what I meant by Wholockians, I tried to spell it out for her.
Me: Doctor WHO. SherLOCKians
Sara: What is this, a bipartisan rally?
Not to be out done
Sara: I get it. I understand the etymology of the made up word. As evidenced by me making up my own word.
I was laughing too hard at the Nicolas Cage picture to answer.
Sara: I dunno. I mean, yay for liking the same things. But to me that sounds sort of like the people who are all, “I’m not a girl! I’m a gurl!”
Or a grrl.
Or whatever bullshit.
Just like what you like.
Me: Honestly, your arguments are still awful.
Sara: You only say that because you’re a lawyer now,
Me (trying to type while laughing and crying): Sara…
Sara: and you have been completely removed from normal human reasoning and argument.
You even have your own word definitions.
After wiping tears from my face, I finally got around to replying.
Me: I would like to point out that Narnians is an actual thing, and it’s not like you said Whonians.
Which would have maybe been a valid point.
Except you don’t like people adding to the English language.
Sara: Ah ha! So you got my point. You just didn’t like the fandoms I picked
Me: You didn’t pick fandom*s*
Sara: Narnia. Lord of the Rings.
I think you didn’t read what I said.
After checking what she wrote
Sara: Because it’s ridiculously specific. That’s like calling myself a narniring
Me: Actually. I thought you were correcting yourself. You meant Narniringian!
Me: Actually, I think Narniringian is cool.
