My Outlander love is not crazy like those Star Wars Geeks or Trekkies – Absolutely Not!

It may seem a bit fanatic to some, especially to those who have not read or watched the Outlander series. We even surprise ourselves at the numerous times we would drop everything – leaving our family and, at times, our careers – just to experience Outlander. As I write this blog today, I think about those other freakishly, and I mean freakishly, crazy fans, like Trekkies or Star Wars geeks, who endlessly live their lives day in and day out with Star Trek or Star Wars on their minds, and I mean all the time! 

When I think about my love for Outlander, I put myself in a whole different category. I. Am. Not. Like. Them. I mean, my adoration of Outlander is really a love for the books by Diana Gabaldon – that’s where it stems. For that very reason, it doesn’t make me crazy. I just enjoy a really good story.

What? Star Wars was a novel series too?

Or maybe because most of the Outlander fans I’ve encountered are “mature” adults, and that makes us different than the rest. It’s not like I go to every single Outlander gathering, so long as it doesn’t divert me from family commitmentsYou know what I mean? Or that I purchase dolls like Luke Skywalker action figures or a Mr. Spock outfit.

Oh, wait, does purchasing plaid or tartan skirts count? Or how about getting a pocket Jamie and acquiring pocket people? Okay, so maybe, just MAYBE I am a bit extreme, but I wouldn’t consider myself a crazed lunatic!

Here, you be the judge of that.

I don’t dress up like this…

Well, alright – but this was a party.

What can I say, it’s a cute look!

Do I have a poster hanging in my home like this? Nope.

Umm, fine! I have these Outlander posters.

Look. Grown adults own these action figures and display them. Who does that?!

Er, these aren’t the same because these are super duper adorable!

Ooops, I forgot about these….. still, not the same!

Do I really need an autographed photo of the characters? See… too fanatic, don’t you think?

Oooohhh, that’s when I met Cesar Domboy in North Carolina. Fergus is such a cutie – I just had to.

Plus,  do I take the time to collect and organize trading cards? That’s a bit too much!

Wait, my Season 1 Outlander cards are just something fun, really! I only purchased them because the cards reminded me of the various passages in the books.

Nowadays, who purchases DVDs or Blu-ray discs when shows and movies can be streamed? I really don’t need to purchase any – they’re not necessary!

Star Wars DVDs & Blu-ray

…I have a reason for these… one was a special edition, which means they are unique. Again, completely different!

As you can see, my admiration for Outlander is nowhere near or even in the same category. I would say it’s pretty normal, wouldn’t you?!

  1. 😂😂 Right? Srsly, there’s a fine line (ok,😏 3 wee letters, 2 consonants & a
    vowel?) between addiction & adoration. Face it, crazy is in the eye of the perceiver. 😜
