Because I can't focus on a darn thing today. Might as well steal this sucker from happywriter06:

List all your fandoms, have your friends pick one and tell them:

1. The first character I fell in love with:
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now:
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't:
4. The character I love that everyone else hates:
5. The character I would sex up or make out with anytime:
6. The character I'd want to be like:
7. The character I'd slap:
8. A pairing that I love:
9. A pairing that I despise:
10. Favorite character:
11. What are your five favorite things about your fandom?
12. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom?
13. Who are your five favorite characters?
14. Who are your five least favorite characters?
15. What are your five favorite pairings?
16. What are your five least favorite pairings?
17. Which character are you most like?
18. What is your deep, dark fandom secret?

My Fandoms (that I claim, anyway). Asterisked ones are in the comments below:
**Supernatural
**Prison Break
**House, M.D.
Reaper (pretty new)
L&O: SVU
24
Oz
**The Shield
**Queer As Folk (S1 only)
Smallville (mostly dead to me now)
**Lost
**Arrested Development
**Simpsons-- can I put a cartoon show on the list?
Did I miss anything obvious? My brain is like a sieve.

ETA: Do I have any deep, dark fandom secrets? I thought most of my opinions were well-known. And in a couple of them, boy-- it'll be hard to find five pairings. Unless I get random, like Dean/Metallicar and Dean/Wall and Michael/Heartache. Maybe I'll throw in the Gen pairings too.

This one was harder than I expected! The show is so rich in weirdness that it's kind of hard to get a handle on. :0

1. The first character I fell in love with: George Michael. There's such a clueless sweetness about him.
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: G.O.B. The looniness always eventually wins. ;)
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't: Maeby? She's not as edgy OR clueless as everyone else. Though I like her-- just don't love her.
4. The character I love that everyone else hates: Oh, the hilarity of Secretly Gay Tobias, who just doesn't even realize.
5. The character I would sex up or make out with anytime: Hahahaha! Oh, hell no.
6. The character I'd want to be like: Even Michael isn't all that sane, so no-one.
7. The character I'd slap: Lucille. She has it coming. :0
8. A pairing that I love: Michael/G.O.B. (sorry)
9. A pairing that I despise: Lindsay/Tobias (though to be fair, Lindsay hates it too).
10. Favorite character: Michael-- his attempts at reason amidst calamity are both funny and familiar.
11. What are your five favorite things about your fandom? The tone of the narrative, the incredibly offbeat humor, the random snippets of weird that are briefly demonstrated, the stair car, the Prison Break references all over S3.
12. What are your five least favorite things about your fandom? Cancelled! Cancelled! Everything after Simpsons was crap after this show moved to Mondays. Cancelled! Cancelled! Or maybe I'm not getting my point across. You think?
13. Who are your five favorite characters? Michael, G.O.B., George Senior, Bob Loblaw (the name!), and weaselly incompetent Lawyer #1 (Barry Zuckerkorn).
14. Who are your five least favorite characters? Maeby, Lucille2, Buster, Kitty, Blue Man Group.
15. What are your five favorite pairings? Michael/George-Michael conversations, Michael/G.O.B. (yes, like that), Tobias/gayReferences, G.O.B./Segway, Lucille/insults.
16. What are your five least favorite pairings? Nothing really to speak of.
17. Which character are you most like? Michael.
18. What is your deep, dark fandom secret? For the longest time, I thought that G.O.B.'s name was Job, as in the Biblical character. Because otherwise, I'd want to call him "gob," as in "gob of spit."

Oh, I love this show so freaking much. I still can't believe that it got such crappy ratings. What that says about North American audiences makes me sad.

The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: G.O.B. The looniness always eventually wins. ;)

I know! I ended up loving him, too. But it's hard with this cast of characters - almost all of them are lovable in one sense or another.

8. A pairing that I love: Michael/G.O.B. (sorry)

Why sorry? I thought that one was obvious.

18. What is your deep, dark fandom secret? For the longest time, I thought that G.O.B.'s name was Job, as in the Biblical character. Because otherwise, I'd want to call him "gob," as in "gob of spit."

Didn't they actually make reference to this in one episode? I thought they had. In any case, I always laughed a little on the inside whenever I heard his name. Tee-hee. Ah, Gob... :D

What that says about North American audiences makes me sad.
The show was "smart humor," which doesn't tend to do well in the U.S. ("Frasier" notwithstanding). And it bothers me too-- shows like Arrested Development (and American Gothic!) die, but World-Wrestling Smackdown freakin' lives on. Gah.

Why sorry? I thought that one was obvious.
Because lots of people find Teh Brothercest icky, for obvious reasons. Though the show did its darndest to sell that pairing for the sake of evil humor. ;)

In any case, I always laughed a little on the inside whenever I heard his name.
Oh me too-- I can't help it. That double-meaning will always exist inside me. ;)

4. The character I love that everyone else hates: Oh, the hilarity of Secretly Gay Tobias, who just doesn't even realize.
How can anyone hate Tobias? I don't get it. I love him for the same reason.

9. A pairing that I despise: Lindsay/Tobias (though to be fair, Lindsay hates it too).
Ha! That's so true.

For the longest time, I thought that G.O.B.'s name was Job, as in the Biblical character.
Me, too. I would think that would be common. I mean G.O.B.? What's with the periods?

How can anyone hate Tobias? I don't get it. I love him for the same reason.
He IS pretty self-satisfied and incredibly annoying in a lot of other respects. It's this one part of him (and the "Never Nude" concept) that I really like him for.

I mean G.O.B.? What's with the periods?
Apparently he's George O. Bluth JUNIOR (no idea what the "O" is for), so his name's abbreviated. And pronounced like Jobe because of the "George" part? I'm guessing.

Though there was that joke about "GOBIAS Industries," the fakeo company he and Tobias created to get a business budget from Michael, and they wanted that pronounced like "Go buy us a cup of coffee." :D

Oh, yeah. Forgot about that. I still liked him more than Lindsay.

Apparently he's George O. Bluth JUNIOR
Oh. I must've missed that.

"Go buy us a cup of coffee."
Makes sense to me.

For the longest time, I thought that G.O.B.'s name was Job
