Word Meme from helplessdancer

Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you. (Please note: If you simply wish to comment on something I've said but don't want to participate in the meme, that is fine. I will only give you five words if you specifically comment you with 'Words!')

Bria gave me "movie reviews, handmaidens, Ewan McGregor, Washington, and Disney."


Movie Reviews

I basically started posting reviews on my lj because I was going to them a lot and when I told my folks about them they suggested I took up a job of writing reviews. Well, I never got up the courage to submit a review to the local paper to see if they'd hire me (it would probably be cheaper/more profitable for them to use Roger Ebert's reviews out of syndication), so I decided to get them out in public at least one way. I haven't really put an effort into them in recent years, but I still throw them out there when I can.

handmaidens

Handmaidens, to me, mean something different. The vast majority of Star Wars fans are either into the niche of bounty hunters, Imperials, Sith, Jedi, droids, or nameless ewoks to name a few, but I wanted to find an interest in something different, and that's when I stumbled up a small piece of fan fiction in 2002 at theforce.net written by a 14 year-old girl who we all know as handmaiden_yane and I was pretty much hooked.

Ewan McGregor

I had heard of Ewan before his casting in The Phantom Menace, but I wasn't familiar with his work or anything about his personal life outside of the Bio starwars.com posted for him when they announced his casting. I wound up living vicariously through him mainly because he was only a few months older than me and was pretty much representing my generation becoming a part of my generation's favorite movie-mythos. Granted, we don't have much more in common than that, but I don't regret becoming a fan of a pretty talented performer.

Washington

This is the state where I currently work and live. Pretty much my "land of opportunity" because I was unemployed, desperate for a job, and this is where I found one. Gosh, tomorrow is the 4-year anniversary of when I first moved here. My, does time fly.

Disney

Disney means good times and fun. Whether it's theme-parks, television (live-action or animated), or movies (live-action or animated) someone is going to have some fun, usually high-quality. Not always, but usually.


EDIT: While I was praising the theme-parks, apparently there was a monorail accident last night and one of the drivers died. My condolences to everyone involved.
