Browncoat in disguise
Friday, April 28, 2006

You know sometimes they are there in disguise. I have been taking college classes and this year I graduate. Last week at one of my English classes the teacher passes out this list of sci-fi movies. We have to watch one from the list and next week discuss the movie's vision of the future. (No, Serenity was not on the list, though it should be.) Anyway,at break my teacher is talking about how she loves science fiction and a little fantasy depending on what it is. She happened to sit by me this class. I look at her, this fun older woman with spunk who I have enjoyed having class with but never would have guessed she loves sci-fi. So I lean over and say "Connie, have you ever heard of a show called Firefly?" and how did she answer : "I own Firefly" I swear I was struck dumb for two seconds and my eyes lit up. "I love it" she continues. "My son and i got into it a while ago." THen I say "then you have seen the movie" "of course" she repies. Okay that just made my day it really did. Who would have known that my college english instructor is a fan of Firefly - don't know if she is a full fledged browncoat, but still. Someone in my 'Verse (besides my family) loves Firefly.

So here's to Browncoats everywhere. The ones we know and the ones yet to be found. I wonder how many other people I pass on the street are Browncoats. I wish there was a way to tell, like if we carried around a pin or something.

Where did you get the ring tone? That is pretty cool.

I'm so happy for you. Almost the same thing happened to me a few weeks ago, my phone went off before class started and one of the students was with me waiting for class and she mentions that she and her mother are both interested in Firefly and Serenity!

My ringtone is the Firefly theme.
