That fine line...

I wonder where that fine line between interest and obsession is. No, I'm not talking about a guy. Although I sort of wish it was a guy. It'd make the position I'm in a little less pitiful. I've always had an avid imagination. From the time I played with Barbie dolls to this day when I express myself through my writing.

Unfortunately, television has a way of... well drawing me in and I forget sometimes. I forget that it's fiction. It's like when I read a book. I have to make myself understand that it's not real. Because TV contains "real" people it's easier to think that a show is indeed "real".

I've been a fan of Bones for a few years after my then roommate, Suzanne, introduced me to the show. Man, I was hooked pretty quick. I think I'm more into the show than she is. I just found the relationship between Agent Booth and Dr. Brennan to be so intense. And if you know me you know that I'm a sucker for a romantic angle. And for the sexual tension. Dang! That's why I've been watching the show all these years. It's one of the only shows that I keep up with these days.

I guess the reason for this post is because of my recent full cross over that previously mentioned line. I've always been a big fan but I'm pretty sure I'm now a FANATIC! And I'm pretty sure it has to do with the 100 episode that aired last Thursday.

It honestly has to be one of my all time favorites. It was both disappointing and so fulfilling at the same time, if that's even possible. Oh wait that's called "bittersweet-ness". Now I have to determine how much of a fanatic I am. Am I enough of one that I start writing dumb comments on how Booth and Bones still aren't together (when we all know that them getting together is going to change how great the show is in a bad way)? Or am I only slightly a fanatic that I still follow the show and only sometimes look at the extra stuff that is online?
Maybe I'll just have to keep you posted. And I'll have to deal with the razzing from my brothers. I can deal with it. As long as I still get my Bones fix everything will be alright.

I think... I just have to keep reminding myself that it isn't real. And that Special Agent Seeley Booth isn't real either. Dang it! I think I have problems with reality.

  1. Hang on, Nikki! And don't worry; we all have problems with fiction/'s actually the subject of one of my classes, sort of.
