So, I was talking to my friend Amy and she was saying that Katee Sackhoff had given an interview where she’d said “Dinglehopper.” Amy and her friend had then made it their word of the day. Well, even though that’s a word from The Little Mermaid, it made me think TV fandoms, of course. Which is why I now propose a FANDOM WORD OF THE DAY calendar! It would educate and entertain. Scholastic should look into endorsing it!

I would have general words, then also phrases or quotes very popular in different fandoms. The short quotes and phrases would be expressions that explain a sort of feeling, that can be used in lots of situations. Or, maybe they’re just something that’s super fun to say. Whatever, dude!

You should know as many of these words and phrases as possible when in the vicinity of a true TV fan, if only to keep up with the conversation.

Suggestions for general words:

Fandom: A community of fans based on a TV show.
Fandom Wank: Absurd self-importance in fandom. Being overy dramatic.
Squee: General fandom, an expression of happiness.

TV-specific word and phrase suggestions:
