But I do like love new friends, so if we seem
to have a lot in common, just drop me a comment, add me, and
I will probably add you back. :D

I no longer use this journal. If you found your way to my info post and would like to add me, find me over at joaniedearest. :)


So let's see here. I'm a 21-year-old college gal, attending Wright State University and majoring in Motion Picture History[, Theory, and Criticism]. I don't know the exact type of job I want to have, but my goal is definitely to find some kind of career in the film industry [DUH, right?] - be it writing, working in film restoration, or whatever. At the moment I am employed at the art gallery on the WSU campus. My dream job, though? To be Robert Osborne. You know, the awesomesauce host from TCM, which is basically the best channel ever? Yeah, him.

I cling to the comfortable and familiar, yet crave the new and exciting. I live in the fantastic imaginary worlds created by film directors and authors of books, or at least I spend most of my time wishing I could live in those worlds. I have a slight tendency towards adoring things (stars, movies) that not that many people have heard of -- at least not many of the people I come in contact with on a daily basis; this is a big part of why I love my online friends so much.

Pepsi is my Miracle Elixir; I'm incurably addicted to the stuff. I would adore nothing more than to be the 4th Mrs. James Wilson - or the first Mrs. Robert Sean Leonard, or the second Mrs. Mark Harmon (curse you, Pam Dawber, for snagging him the year I was born! :P). I'm a completely hopeless romantic, waiting for that someday when my prince will come.

film. Gone With the Wind. The Wizard of Oz. Mamma Mia!. The Women. Mildred Pierce. Sweeney Todd. Rent. The Producers. The Harry Potter series. The Sound of Music. Mary Poppins. Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?. The Exorcist. The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

t.v. House. NCIS. The Tudors. The Golden Girls. M*A*S*H. I Love Lucy. Bewitched.

tunes. The Eagles. Journey. REO Speedwagon. Aerosmith. Def Leppard. Cher. Bon Jovi. Matchbox Twenty. Creed. HIM. Rod Stewart. + Showtunes & movie musical soundtracks.

ladies. Joan Crawford [my faaaavorite, in case you couldn't figure that out, HEE.] Cher. Helen Mirren. Katharine Hepburn. Anne Hathaway. Emmy Rossum. Gena Rowlands. Ellen Burstyn. Lucille Ball. Meryl Streep.

gents. Hugh Laurie. Gerard Butler. Robert Sean Leonard. Mark Harmon. Alan Rickman. Hugh Dancy. Jeremy Irons. Johnny Depp. Jeff Gordon. Heath Ledger. Jamie Cambell Bower.

What's the word?
(a.k.a "joanie_dearest5 is...")

"You are pretty much the best friend that anyone could ever ask for! I love you BFF! :)"

"You're the sweetest, nicest person ... and NCIS fan I know. You're like, NCIS Queen! :)"

"...such a fun person to have on my LJ list. I love your comments, and we both have a shared love for Swing Kids! :) And you know that's epic."

"...pretty awesome!"

"Caileigh is Helen Mirren approved!"

"...super-sweet, wonderfully film-geeky, and all-around delightful!"

Know me and wanna add something? Do it here. :)

Hello there. :) I found you through the Joan Crawford community you mod, which I just happened to stumble upon. I'm also big fan of the lovely Joan, and we seem to have quite a bit in common. Mind if I add you?
C.: CRAN <3joanie_dearest5 on January 7th, 2007 10:26 pm (UTC)
Hi!! It's GREAT to meet someone else who seems to love Joanie as much as I do! Of course I don't mind, and I added you as well :D

Add me too! Add me too!
We Helen-ites must stick together!!
(plus I can't believe there's someone else out there who loves movies made before 1990! ... I have to admit though, the 30s and 40s are my favorite decades in terms of classics... Garbo, Hepburn, Dietrich, Crawford, Davis, Loy..etc Wunderbar!!)
C.: Hels: HEART! :Djoanie_dearest5 on February 9th, 2007 12:08 am (UTC)
YAY! Helen AND the classics!!! We MUST be friends! I will so add you :D

Idiosyncratic Stanwyckalataye on February 9th, 2007 05:49 pm (UTC)
I love Barbara Stanwyck. Barbara Stanwyck loved Joan Crawford. Therefore, we should be friends ;)

Oh, and my extreme, uh, devotion to Queen Helen might not hurt either, huh? (By the way, your friends only thingy is fantastic.)
C.: Crannieeeeeee. <3joanie_dearest5 on February 9th, 2007 05:55 pm (UTC)

Hey there....

I've been meaning to stop by your LJ for awhile. LOVE your header and the ones that you've made for others here in HELENLAND. I'm friends only as well but come on over to maggiesheridan if you want. I don't have the PICSPAMNESS of miss_mirren or screen_queen or the HNG crown_the_queen but I love Helen nonetheless and LOVE discussing her with anyone who will listen LOL!

C.: Hels: In-N-Out burger love!!! :)joanie_dearest5 on March 22nd, 2007 04:31 pm (UTC)
Sure I will add you, darling! I've seen you around too and have thought we should start talking :)
My little journal cannot compare to the awesome Helen-ness of miss_mirren's or miss_analyst's either, but I LOVE to see what they share and just to discuss Helen with others as well :D

I was just ohhhing and ahhhing over your icons thinking "CHER!? No one makes awesome Cher icons here! Annie Lennox? OH MY!! And These Helen icons are the BEST!!" So I'm thinking you're probably a pretty awesome person, and if you would like to add me back, that would be terrific!

Hi, my name is Ollie. I saw you commenting on one of charmingnotion's posts and I read your profile and I think we have a lot in common. I'm an English major with an emphasis in film, and I'm not really sure what I want to do, but I know it's going to involve film.

And, you watch Designing Women. I do not have enough people on my flist who appreciate that show. Also, I love House and I Love Lucy!
