True. I had a long-ago supervisor who used to apologize proactively for what she was about to ask me to do, so that when I heard the ask, it would sound minor compared to the effusiveness of her apology. Took me awhile to catch on. She was manipulating me into soothing her.

The power of fanhope caused a split in the timeline, breaking off an alternate world where Firefly is still on the air. Those fans are just confused why they ended up in this one.

Huh. This happened to us when we traveled to TX several winters ago. It was 39F, very cold for TX, but a relief from the zero temps in Chicagoland. *Every* hotel desk clerk and waiter apologized for the weather. Like they should have planned better for our visit??

They're trying to stop immigration by making people afraid to come here. God help us. Lady Liberty weeps.

Penny Robinson: "You do realize you can never accuse *us* of being reckless again?" Maureen Robinson: "Of course I can. I'm your mother."

Why is it I can never crazy-glue something without getting glue on myself? Ah well. Nothing permanently stuck to me, and I can emory the glue-callouses off.

One of the downsides to eating s’mores as comfort food is, your fingers stick to the keyboard.

how he drives them away. And the he meets Joe Pike, who takes him seriously and helps him gather evidence. And this is the key part - John Chen accepts Joe's help. He's still toxic, but he genuinely loves his CSI work. He starts to change. Can't remember how far Chen's arc 2/

I've been re-reading the Elvis Cole books, and just got to the place in LA Requiem where we meet John Chen. And it occurred to me that Chen had the potential to be a shooter. Geeky, scorned, angry at the world, angry that women don't want him and clueless as to 1/

I read that as “by dragging him”, and then thought, well yes, being dragged down the fire escape would make Booth disoriented, but why suggestible? 😀

By 35 you should have at least three now-dead fandoms you miss terribly, two defunct fanfic accounts (one of which is LiveJournal), several RL friends you still think of by their online usernames, and one trash post that clutters your notifications every few weeks.

I hope EVERYONE realizes how un-American it is to say that people who don't stand for the Anthem should leave the country.

I’ve met too many people eager for romantic love when what they really need are some solid friends. There is love in strong friendships and in family. Tap into it. Romance isn’t the only way to receive love - especially not when your platonic relationships are severely lacking.

Weird how so many people see it as either/or. Yeah, kids should not have bullied the shooter. And, no, that doesn’t excuse anything.

Guppy: Oh wait! I was supposed to have started a meeting two minutes ago with seven people who report to me. I’d better reschedule. I’m sure this has not inconvenienced any of them. Me: *****BLAM*****

Am I the only one who thinks those little munchkin cats with the extra-short legs look like some mad scientist has been INTERFERING with them? Or maybe it was the Cetagandans. Disturbing.
