Huh. I see "HP" and I think Harry Potter, but I see "DH" and think Desperate Housewives. Interesting.

I still think "Hewlett Packard" first, except when I see it mentioned on my LJ but "DH," yep, I definitely think Desperate Housewives first too.

Does this mean you're at "HP Overload"? ;)

SS... well, Sorceror's Stone. Duh. ;)

Ha, well, I'm a fan, but not a diehard one. I'm not planning my life around the new book or film.

And I never even thought of Sorcerer's Stone! LOL. Which just shows how deep I am immersed in that world. Not very! I've read all the books exactly once and seen the films probably a few times.

I feel bad because I really, really love the pairing, but I can't think of them when I see "SS". It sure doesn't make lide easier when I'm naming my WIP files (I'm a librarian at heart).

I'm not a Harry Potter fan, but thanks to fandom they've taken over the HP initials.

Well, I have many "JS" icons and fic files names as such because you can't put a slash in the filename, I don't think, so my whopping 2 S/S fics, same thing. ;)

And HP is Harry Potter on LJ but Hewlett Packard anywhere else, for me.

I guessed at a few of those, I have to say, the HP furor hasn't even begun I think, after that book comes out, it will be everywhere.

And still, I've never read one of them.

I like the books but I'm not obsessed with them. My only real motive to get the last book when everyone else does is so I won't be spoiled. And I really should as someone spoiled me for the big spoiler in the last book! The same person who spoiled me about X-Men 3 and one of the big Lost spoilers. Dammit, I'm not talking to them until I get the book!

LOL! Too easy!

Sawyer/Sayid is S/Sd to me, though I don't really know how the rest of fandom would acronym that. (Can 'acronym' be a verb?)

Darn it, no one is picking the "Hot Pockets" option. Admit it, "Hot Pockets and the Desperate Housewives" would be a good read! I'm going to have to go out and buy it or I won't be able to go near the Internet.

And Sawyer is S/Sd to me too, I guess, unless I'm naming an as-yet-untitled fic or an icon and then it'll be "ss_whatever."

That icon just make me giggle a little too much. Just what I needed!

DH is always Desperate Housewives to me, LOL. And you think HP=Hewlett Packard because you worked for them once, right?

Ha, no I never worked for Hewlett Packard. I do have an HP printer though. ;)
