Gunn: The final score can't be rigged. I don't care how many players you grease, that last shot always comes up a question mark. But here's the thing. You never know when you're taking it. It could be when you're duking it out with the Legion of Doom, or just crossing the street deciding where to have brunch. So you just treat it like it was up to you—the world in balance—'cause you never know when it is.

Kat: Loki is a toddler.

billytea: You've just encapsulated centuries of Norse mythology in only four words. What are you going to do next?

OMG, that last post made me almost nose water. Guess the thread is well named indeed, beverage choices aside.

ETA seriously - I'm still laughing at this (having missed it in thread) 5 minutes later. I fear I will scare my cow-orkers when I come across it in thread tomorrow.

teeny tiny tender peas -- that was the pea description in my house growing up.


Brussel sprouts were shrunken heads in my childhood.
I didn't like'em, but we ate 'em.


I called mushrooms slugs for my sister's benefit.
Why do I have a cold?

The difference between theory and practice is that in theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

In Natter 63, following mention of kosher salt and Christian salt.


I want FSM salt. Blessed by a pirate.

When they made this particular hero, they didn't give him a gun, they gave him a screwdriver to fix things. They didn't give him a tank or a warship or an X-wing fighter, they gave him a call box from which you can call for help. And they didn't give him a superpower or pointy ears or a heat ray. They gave him an extra heart. They gave him two hearts. And that's an extraordinary thing. There will never come a time that we don't need a hero like the Doctor.

Steph and the Boy deal with her severe toothache:

Me: "Oh god, I can't eat anything because it hurts!"

The Boy: "Not even peanut butter from the jar?"

Me: ....

Me: [running to kitchen] "I love you more than Batman right now!"

(As I was rummaging in the pantry to find the peanut butter, I heard from the dining room, "Right NOW?!?" Heh.)

I know my own heart and understand my fellow man. But I am made unlike anyone I have ever met. I dare to say I am like no one in the whole world. - Anne Lister

The actress in Salvation is named Moon Bloodgood? Did she escape from a JK Rowling book?

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

a ref four-fecta, from Bitches--

connie neil: This Means Something! Especially since I found it while doing research on an X-Files/Supernatural crossover fic.

Cue the Twilight Zone theme.

omnis, pursue. That's an order from a shy woman who can use M-16. - Shir

WRT the Wii Fit: Laga: yeah, I also got the "too busy to work out yesterday, eh?" I shot back, "No, YOU were, fighting nazis and killing zombies with D."

Greece's financial crisis threatens to take down all of Western civilization - a civilization they themselves founded. A rather tragic irony - which is something they also invented. - Jon Stewart

Ginger: My dog apparently ate a couple of ounces of weeds and then threw them up this afternoon.

meara: ...I read this as ate WEED. And I was like "well, someone's open about her pot habit...and surprisingly not so upset about the amount the dog went through, that's expensive, isn't it?"

Perkins: Me too, meara. Me too.

Cass: And me.

beth b: me too

Ginger: It's nice that people think my life is more exciting than it is. I guess it would really be alarming if he ate pot-laced brownies with chocolate chips in them.

Miracleman: When I was growing up, the neighbor across the back way was, um...unsubtle about his weed habit. And by that I mean he had a four or five foot plant growing next to his back stoop.

One day the family got a black lab mix puppy. Cute widdle guy, just tiny when they got him.

And that tiny widdle guy ate the whole weed plant.

Owner guy was very upset about the loss of his plant. Owner lady was very upset that her widdle puppy might die.

Widdle puppy was one very happy puppy. For three whole days. He just lay there and, like, wagged his tail, and probably thought: Dude. What if "Dog" was spelled G-O-D. You know, man?

Theodosia: "Look at the size of my PAWS!" "What's that thing waving around at the base of my spine? Wait, it's ATTACHED?" "Man, I've got to get me some Snausages, like, now!"

brenda m: Yeah, but that differs from a dog's normal day how?

amych: More munchies?

Oh, wait.

Love is stronger than death and harder than sorrow. Those who practice it are fierce like the light of stars traveling eons to pierce the night.

In Bitches, on the topic of small children's bad dreams, Trudy Booth sets it up:

I guess that's how the sleeping brain expresses anxiety before you've gone to High School.

Miracleman knocks it down:

...and after you've gone, the anxiety is expressed as...bad poetry and poor fashion decisions.
