MALICIOUS



I know, I know, it's been done before. However, I continue to have them, these "moments" that transport me, mentally, to ThisLand. So I was hoping there were others who had them as well. What am I talking about? Well, I saw the last name "Washburn" the other day and totally lost track of what I was doing, what with all the smirking. The first name was NOT "Hoban" but it didn't need to be, you know?

Basically, have you come upon something that made you think of Firefly? Or you associated with Firefly? Or perhaps a dream? Share them with us, your friends.

My favorite from that long ago thread was when I was watching a video of some show I had taped. This was six or seven MONTHS after F*x cancelled the show and three or four before the DVD set was released and I was seriously jonesing for some FF. I was mildly curious to see what I had taped over (OR just too lazy to hit rewind) and when I saw it was "War Stories" I sat straight up and pointed at the tv, looking around, wanting to tell someone else what treasure I had just found. No one there but me and the dog. He seemed just as excited as I was though. I watched that little scrap of the show for MONTHS, until I got the DVD set for Christmas. What a heartwarming tale, eh?

Your turns.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


I've been thinking about that other thread lately too. I work in construction, and there is a new housing development west of town called "Badger's Run." Also a few miles west of that you can visit "Cobb Cemetery." I was driving through a little wide spot in the road in Central Texas the other day, a blip of a town called Donie, and lo and behold, there was "Yolanda's Cafe." I started to stop there, but thought better of it. You never know, it might be a place she set up just to meet prospective husbands, then she poisons them.

Everytime I eat some meal bar at lunch, Atkin's or the like, which are a protien for the most part, I think of FF. I automatically wonder how anyone who must, in the Firefly 'verse, live on protien. I think of the "chocolatey tasting as possible" reference to Simon's cake, and try to choke the meal bar down.
Anyone who's eaten one, you know they taste like horrid hunks of sawdust with chocolate flavored goo, dried on top. And the deceptive names of "s'mores" and "granola" on the label. The latter has a texture resemblng styrofoam.
I guess if you're hungry enough and you're in space with no Wendy's or Sonic drive thru in your galaxy...

I once was shopping at Target's makeup section and ran across a lipgloss whose color was 'Firefly'. I think I said OHMYGOD out loud, then looked around quickly to see if anyone had heard me.


Bought the gloss, and luckily really liked the color on.

Thanks for providing a place to share these moments, BTW. There are not many people I know who would understand the way fellow Browncoats (and especially in this case female ones) do!

I had a double FF Moment when watching Stargate Atlantis the other day…

Spoiler for episode 119 “The Siege Part I”

Select to view spoiler:


There is one part when Sheppard, Tayla, and Ford are falling back through the stargate shooting, the head of security starts accusing Tayla about betraying them to the Wrath when Sheppard and Ford jump in saying they were attacked by a T-Rex! I just busted out and said, “Curse your sudden, but inevitable betrayal Tayla!” Then in another scene Ford said they should start giving names to the planets they travel too, and I thought they could call the T-Rex Planet “This Land”.

I broke up a forceful disagreement between two students yesterday. While I was trying to get to the bottom of the issue by asking them one at a time to explain themselves, a third student trying to play 'star witness' kept interrupting with her input. I turned to her and said sharply, "Sarah! Your mouth is talkin'. Look into it."

Yeah, I know, I paraphrased, but still.

The other day, on a message board RPG I write at, I read one thread where the two writers in it are both Firefly fans. They mentioned an 'upside down cow foetus'.

I was both amazed and horrified to discover that this had been a totally unintentional reference.

Every time I open my kitchen cupboard and see the tiny bottle of saffron my penpal from Iran sent me, I get a YoSafBridge moment.

The other day at work, someone asked rhetorically, "You know what that makes us?" I replied, "Big Damn Heroes, Sir." He didn't get it. I walked away giggling.

A few weeks ago, I took the final for my human skeletal anatomy course. As I was looking at a lumbar vertebra through a magnifying glass, I swear the spinal process and transverse processes turned into Serenity sitting on land. It may have been the lack of sleep from too much studying, but it still put a big grin on my face for the rest of the test.

Also, after watching the Pompeii discovery channel special, I turned to my boyfriend and said "as morbid and creepifying as this sounds, THAT is what I want to do...put together those skeletons"...he didn't get the reference.

We were discussing the budget for our upcoming company party. All of the funds had been allocated when someone suggested we use the last five percent for a karaoke machine (said person obviously didn't here me state we were out of money). The committee leader, not me, said, "let's see five percent of nothing is nothing."

I fell out of my chair laughing. I mumbled something about Firefly, and they rolled their eyes. It took them a good ten minutes to get the meeting back under control.

I swear his voice sounded just like Jayne's.

We didn't need the money anyway as I own a karaoke machine.

You're assuming I don't think about Firefly 24/7. Well you're wrong this week.

There was one today, though. Went in town and I passed a place like the own where River dance (in Safe). I could just hear the music and see River dancing... It made my grin even grinnier

Mal -
Thought I'd report a Firefly Moment I just had.
I saw this headline on the Yahoo home page:

River Poses Security Problem at Super Bowl

And really had to take a second look. River's gonna be at the Superbowl? Doing what, killing people with her brain?? Turns out the article is about the problems with having the St. Johns river so close to the Superbowl venue, but I had to laugh!

Here's part of it:

Tue Feb 1, 8:26 PM ET
By MARK LONG, AP Sports Writer

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A river runs through it — and that's a security problem for this city's first Super Bowl. From jet skis to cruise ships, watercraft regularly ply the St. Johns River, a federal waterway that runs right alongside Alltel Stadium.

All boats must be checked and rechecked. Ships carrying visitors by the thousands are monitored around the clock. And Coast Guard divers have to search the river on a regular basis.

NFL vice president for security Milt Ahlerich called the river "a unique aspect of this Super Bowl," but he also downplayed the impact it had on the security plan Tuesday.

It's gotten so bad (good?) that I just had a Firefly moment... about this board.
I was watching PTI (Pardon the Interruption) today - 2 sports reporters talking about the day in sports (better than it might sound) - one of the reporters was in Jacksonville, FL where it's been unusually cool and was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, hood up. Another commentator said, "Wilbon, wth that hood up you look malicious..."

Not exactly Firefly, but I did used to have to speak to a 'Rupert Giles' once a week in my old job.
Firefly moments: Whenever the male maid come over in SIMS2.. he wears Blue Gloves.. I don't trust him (and is it coincidence that the Dishwasher seems to break whenever this maid uses it)

and I regularly use the phrase 'my days of taking you seriously are coming to a middle' and the Co-Worker I converted insists that I 'Do a *brilliant* Kaylee' because I (apparently) frequently say 'I'm pointin' right at it'
or words to that effect in the same tone of voice.

Woo-hoo!!! I had 2 Firefly moments yesterday.
First one, on the train, a girl was carrying a bag with 'Hello Kitty!' written on it. Only I read it wrong: I thought it was 'Hell's Kitten'. The name of a fellow browncoat!!!

Later that day, I saw a book with the cover "The origin of your child's name - From Adam to Zoe" I hope these moments will keep coming!

At the movie theater where I work, I met this new girl named Kaylee. I asked her "Is that short for something?" And she said "no." Then a moment later she said, "No one's ever asked me that before." And I told her a little about Firefly, and about Kaylee, short for "Kaywinnet Lee."

New to this forum, so this might have been discussed earlier.

The blue gloves thingy...big deja vue for me but not really a conincidence, maybe the origin of Joss Whedon's idea for them in Firefly?

Never been interested before in the Buffy and Angel series, but after Firefly, which I absolutely loved I decided to catch up on those two series. Have been forcefeeding myself with them these last two months. Just saw an Angel episode (season one, no. 18) where the police are investigating a crime scene, all wearing those blue gloves... felt eery.

The other day I was organizing a meeting with someone (to help me put up posters around campus). She suggested "tomorrow," and my internal monologue went "What day is it?" As I went to double check the calendar, my brain continued after a moment "What month is it?"

Is it bad that the voice in my head sounds like Jayne?

I had a FF moment a few days ago when flying in M$oft Flight Sim 2004. I was flying my trusty T-38 Talon down the Grand Canyon just under the speed of sound, every few minutes I look up (in the game) for some reason and I don’t know why, until I hits me. With no one following me above the Canyon I keep flying for about 20 minutes until I almost pancake in to a wall and pull out then search for a place to land.

That kind of flying really wakes up a guy!

I was wandering around the local hypermarket at two this morning singing the theme song, when I realized that three other voices on aisles to either side of me had picked it up and were singing or humming along with me!

Well, a couple of minor moments:

I took our "into the black" cat Bella Luna to the vet recently for vaccines. Her vet exclaimed: "She's so shiney!".


My husband (quite deliberately with a fellow FFF smile) bought a bottle of not half bad white wine from north Cali. called "Firefly' recently; dang them for not having a URL. I tried to Google them up but only found an Aussie wine co. with a "Firefly" label. http://www.fireflywine.com/.

One of my seven year old son's favorite songs is the Firefly theme. It's so cool to hear him sing: "You can't take the sky from me..."

It's all about companions at the moment.

A Nora Roberts romance - always a good, quick, noncommittal read. Only the prologue started with a rich man's mistress, and how she prided herself on being an elegant and generous companion. That was last night.

This morning - and keep in mind, I work at a church - one co-worker (let's call her Sue) bemoaned the fact that she may be sick on her vaction. The other, Dee, who is a close friend, said that Sue's husband could take her along instead... as a companion. Sue said he's "not that kind of a guy."

Oh, and there was a classmate who used very Firefly-like lingo in an essay recently. Speaking of changes on the landscape and such.

Oooh! Me too! I've used that on not one, but two students! Not very nice, perhaps, but very effective. Leads to Jayne-like sullen looks and silence.

Also, my boyfriend dyes his hair blue. This, of course, necessitates the wearing of gloves to keep the dye off his hands. The other day he was finishing up and proceeded to chase me around the room with his blue hands...

Conversations you should just not have:

Wandering around the house in the morning calling to the cat: "Bella! Where did you put Jayne's gun... Bella?"

Looking frantically under the furniture for this *little bitty bit* of plastic that you need for your model: "Come on kitty, where's Vera? *Wheeere's Vera?! Where'd Vera go?"

The cat's shied off no doubt with a snerk on her face, Vera's under some piece of furniture, and I am realizing that I'm really glad that I'm alone in the house for this.

"Come on, where's Vera?"

I guess when I was in a lecture the other day and we were studying the effects of alcohol on the National Health Service (many..... 1 in every 30 deaths in Scotland will be due to alocohol as opposed to 1 in a 100 in the last study.....) anyway we were watching a video about the structure of Alcoholics Anonymous and was thinking of Firefly because they have the "Serenity Prayer" at the end of the Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. I won't be forgetting about it any time soon.

We also have a cardiology professor called Dr Cobbe and I was reading about a Tamm-Horsfall protein produced by the kidneys. Ah the many things I won't forget now......

Hey, Chani!

I wrote this a while ago, based on the twelve steps of AA/Al-Anon, thought you might enjoy it!


Firefly: a 12 step program for withdrawal

step 1: Admitted you were powerless over decisions made by Fox executives.

step 2: Came to believe that Joss could restore our faith in mass media. Or at least get a movie out to us. AND have a reeaalllly long gag reel on the Serenity DVD when it comes out.

step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of Joss as we understood him.

step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of the tv listings.

step 5: Admitted to God, ourselves and everyone on FFF.net the exact nature of Fox's wrongs.

step 6: Were entirely ready to have Joss remove the defects (if any) of the movie during editing and post production.

step 7: Humbly asked Joss to let Mal be nekkid at least once in the BDM.

step 8: Made a list of all persons who have not seen Firefly and became willing to tie them up if need be to..."introduce" them to the show.

step 9: Made direct converts of such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. And maybe even then, if necessary.

step 10: Continued to do guerilla marketing techniques in Best Buy, Borders Books, Circuit City and assorted video rental outlets, and when the DVD was hidden away, promptly displayed it at eye level.

step 11: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our freakish knowledge of every iota of each episode so as to win the Firefly trivia contests at each shindig.

step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry The Message (and all the other episodes) to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs. While simultaneously attempting to actually live a life, work and pay bills when possible.
