Friday Frag

An excerpt from an email of supposed Maya Angelou quotations:
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

This is particularly true for me.

Am again at the borderline of a cold.

Yesterday Kosh and I kept turning the thermostat higher and higher because omg was the apartment collllldddddd! Despite wearing lined sweatpants *and* having a wifebeater under my sweatshirt, I was as cold as a block of ice, and you wouldn't have been able to thaw me to save your life!

Having an entire wall comprising floor-to-ceiling glass doors really does make this apartment lose heat fast!

But good news! It seems we are going to have warm [like, highs almost reaching 60F!] weather for about a week - yay!

While trying to find an alliterative word for today's post, scifi's version of the F-word popped into my head. In Battlestar Galactica, it's FRAK. In Babylon 5 it's FRAG. As in "abso-fraggin-lutely". I can still picture Delenn's mischievous smile when she used that on Sheridan, teeheehee!

So last night we caught an episode of South Park on channel 26. Early on in the show, I was all like "Hey, this is *so* Children of the Corn!". It turned into something very Lord of the Flies-like too... and closer to the end of the show, it was Kosh's turn: "Hey, I recognise this ... this is from an episode of Star Trek!!".

So of course, we turned on the internet* and hunted around till we found confirmation: South Park episode 416 "The Wacky Molestation Adventure" parodies Children of the Corn, Logan's Run, Lord of the Flies, Pet Sematary, Risky Business, Army of Darkness, Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome and especially the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "Miri" according to wikipedia.

Kewl!

Gotta love the 'net :-)

= = = =

turned on the internet* = an inside joke for Kosh & me, and perhaps anyone else who had the misfortune of catching that one case of two feuding sisters on court tv recently: "she turned on the internet so that the call I was expecting couldn't come through".

. She may have turned on the computer.
.. She may have dialed up to get on the internet via the computer.
... She certainly did NOT "turn on the internet"!!

That phrase was so absurd we loved it!

Okay, I just sneezed all over the keyboard. Bleh! Time to go out and soak in some sun.

Cheers!

  3. I so like that maya A quote. Well in fact I adore her! Listening to her talk makes me feel like a child. Her voice is strong yet calm, and she is amazing. She's the kind of person who can talk about a cardboard box and it is still interesting.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!
