Dawn: I think a date should be in a real fancy restaurant, then champagne at a night club with a floor show, then ballroom dancing. Joyce: Unfortunately, we're not dating in a movie from the thirties.

"Our lives are like little bebe crows carried upon a curious wind and all we can wish is for that wind place us on solid ground." -Moira Rose

I just came across this gem of Buffista parenting way back in Natter and had to COMM(A) it:

Gudanov: I found out my daughter's class is covering forces and gravity. I was trying to tell how gravity is really cool and is the warping of time and space. I also tried telling how time slows down for observers in higher gravity. She seemed really unimpressed by all this. I did tell her to stick with the class answer of 'force that attracts objects to each other' rather than 'warping of space-time' on any tests.

A dress should be tight enough to show you're a woman but loose enough to flee from zombies. — Ginger

In Bitches:

erikaj: But I'm part Irish-American with a tortured soul and a psycho family

Shir: Oh, I'm just Jewish. I guess that's pretty much wraps it up the same.

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.

Overheard at work:

"Oh come on. It's pretty easy to tell if something is shit or coffee."


Um... are those metaphors? ... I mean, I hope the person is not talking about some new business that serves both coffee and hot shit in a cup....


A crappuccino.

I guess everything really does sound better in Italian.

You should know I'm a big deal in the Resistance.

in music...

megan walker - What mainstream term would one use to categorize Violent Femmes? Alternative Rock?

tommyrot - College Rock? Post-Punk?

I don't think the term "Alternative" was in use during their heyday....

I think I've heard them labeled as Folk-Punk back in the day.

DavidS - Close enough. You could also go for American Indie.

Trudy Booth - I think they prefer "Native Alternitan"

'we all walk this earth feeling we are frauds. The trick is to be grateful and hope the caper doesn't end any time soon"

Thanks for catching that in full, Laga!

Without a plan, it turns out, a lot of decisions are really hard. Eliot might actually hate his shrink. Yes, Eliot is getting healthier or whatever, but at what cost? He used to be a mess of scar tissue and substance abuse, but he could get dressed in the morning without an existential crisis.

Dana: Someone reassure me that having a cavity doesn't mean I've failed as a person.

oh joy! Oh Rapture ! I have a brain!

No context TomW:

Applesauce is pretty cool.

I mean, it's all fruity and mushy and tangy. Goes great with pork, or you can just stir it into yogurt for a quick and easy dessert.

That's what they should make a show about: applesauce. Fox, call me!

Why did Darth Vader cross the road? To get to the Dark Side!

ita in Natter:

Though, honestly? Sometimes I feel what's been culturally appropriated from me most is my outrage.

"What kind of magical sunshine and lollipop world do you live in? Because you need to be medicated."-SFist

Sad but true, in Heroes:

Juliebird: I am stoned on cold medicine.

victor infante: And yet, making as much sense as "Heroes" volumes two and three.

In Bitches, where fashion wins against exercise/green traveling:

Jilli VoiceOfReason

I keep idly thinking about getting a tricycle (I never learned to ride a bike and I don't want to start now), but then I glumly contemplate bike helmets, find nothing that I like, and give up on the whole notion.
