Thank you.  I couldn't remember - was it you that liked Firefly/Serenity?
Oh, yes.



Somebody else is going to have to write the essay on the part played by ducks and wizards in the Unification War.

Suddenly, the Brown Coats' fortunes improved as Ronald Dumbledore came to their rescue!





You are the bomb-diggiest.

I hope that's a good thing.

You did catch the Fillion/Baldwin reunion on this week's Castle, right?

{I feel somewhat hypocritical asking that, since the Firefly and Serenity DVDs -- that I bought because I heard the show was good -- have been hovering perpetually near, but never quite reaching, the top of my To Watch list.}

You left out Voldemort sexually assaulting Mina Harker in 1969



....I'll get my coat.
