What's 'shipping'?  
This entry over at wikipedia is... funny? Well, it made me laugh (ok more like giggling as my sister screamed: 'John! Dock with Liz!' *dissolves again into giggles* such a cute ship, our Sparky...)

I always wanted to know where the term 'shipping' is from and finally I got an answer ;)

John! Dock with Liz!
 
totally shipped
Current Mood totally shipped

They have! *grins*

They have to. It's the new ship ;)

btw, is your icon a manip or does a shot like that really excist?
Katekawaiix on March 2nd, 2006 08:08 pm (UTC)
I think so, but it could be a manip b/c I think the shot could have been taken at a convension.

I wish I remembered who made it. :(

I know! *dreamy sigh* ♥ That's actually the icon that opened my friends' eyes to the light. ^____^

...They don't have to know that the pic was never in the show right? XD!

*giggle*

You know I had to have this whole big conversation with my husband about 'shipping' and that led to all kinds of internet-speak terms, like fic, fandom, slash, cannon...etc.



it's great that now there are actual reference sources to point people to. *snort*

I had the same conversation with my mom... she was overwhelmed ;)

OMG we have our own term *bounce*
lorettakaylorettakay on March 2nd, 2006 08:38 pm (UTC)
Yeah...my husband finally looked at me and said, "never-mind"

yup. shippers of the world unite.

I should print this off and take it to college with me. Everytime I mention shipping at least one person goes, 'Huh?' And trying to explain it is very complex.

And if I mention Sparky, or even Spanky, well that's a whole other conversation. And then there's point eight five seconds...

We always get this 'WTF are you talking about?' look. Makes me feel like I'm really living in another galaxy...

*faceplam* I gave explaining it to my brother after several heavy 'OMG you spank somebody in your fandom?' question...

And then there's point eight five seconds...

*biggest grin evar*

Now that sounds familiar. Mentioning Spanky around some of my friends gives some very interesting responses. Chris looked very happy I believe, which was very worrying.

And point eight five seconds is the best way to get rid of mental images I've found, and has about three of us muttering about Sparky and looking very happy.

Uh oh... very worrying.

Ô_____o mental imgaes? Do I wanna know which?

and has about three of us muttering about Sparky and looking very happy.

Oh yes ;)

Probably not considering what some of my friends say...

*hehe* That's so great! Thank you my twin for sharing it with us!! ♥
I'll put a link to this wiki-entry on my homepage. I always speak my head off, when I try to explain what's shipping and at the end I can't describe it really well. *headdesk*
Mercy: Sparky - Against you and memercscilla on March 4th, 2006 05:38 pm (UTC)
I gave up explaining after several weird glances from my brother. Either they get it at the first tryx or never!

LOL! Funny thing is I read that recently while doing some research on that site. Pokemon is another crazy thing I tell ya, with the whole Ash/Misty thing. Not to mention Harry Potter.

We're all nuts! :D
Mercy: Flummi!mercscilla on March 4th, 2006 05:22 pm (UTC)
Oh my, Pokemon... *hides her Gameboy* and Harry Potter... we are so shipped ;)
