Quote of the day: “Denny Crane.” ~ Denny Crane, Boston Legal
Song of the day: “Only Me” by NIN
State of mind: annoyed by people who ask questions but then don’t bother paying attention to the ensuing discussion about the solution and then re-ask the same &*()!@#$ question.
Book update of Wicked. So far, none of the characters are particularly sympathetic and The Land of Oz doesn’t seem like the magical place that it is depicted as being in the original Dorothy-centric story. But then, I am only 30 pages or so in. (I was distracted by LOST being back on. TV rots the brain. Maybe that’s what happened to the women in Cincinnati!)
To answer once and for all the astronaut vs. cavemen question: At the height of the epic battle Capt. Kirk would throw down his rock and give a long and impassioned speech about freedom and what it means to be human and the aliens that had been using them all for a puppet show would be humiliated into letting them go; mostly because they don’t want to look at a half naked William Shatner anymore. (Who does?) But before they all regain their freedom Abraham Lincoln dies in Spock’s arms, because there has to be a moment where Spock has an emotion, despite the fact that he isn’t supposed to. (Star Trek logic. Gotta love it.)
In the health department, I can say with a smile that I did not eat a salad today, but I did have a nice big bowl of soup. Yummy. (It actually was. I’m not being flip.) But…. Girl Scout cookies arrived today. That was what the salad was for though, right? So I could eat cookies occasionally? Besides, when they are for a charity, the calories don’t count.
Angel quote of the day:
Illyria: You are the Qwa'ha Xahn.
Knox: I am your priest. I am your servant. I am your guide in this world. I've taken your sacraments and placed them close to my heart according to the ancient ways. That's why you were called to me. We're bound together.
Illyria: My last Qwa'ha Xahn was taller.
