    OR BOTH!

    and add i add a bit of "two by two, hands of blue" in a sing-song voice

    my msn name is "Some people juggle geese!", my msn display pic is the serenity crew, i have a serenity wallpaper on my comp, i can quote till the cows come home (from eps, audio com. and interviews), i watch ANYTHING the cast members r in AND get excited about it (including Fillion in 'Dracula 2000'),  i get excited seeing ppl dressed as the characters at conventions and feel the need to go up and tell them that i recognize who they were and finally, i jump at ANY chance to talk about firefly to the the only 2 ppl who r around me that appreciates it!  

    I think i should be able to join the gang...

    you know you watch too much Firefly when:

    whenever you finish a difficult task you end it by saying "we have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty"
    when want that gun that Mal has on his side...jeez, that thing is cool.
    When you tell someone that their best is "no ruttin good!"
    you call your nemesis at work/school Saffron
    you call your love interest at work/school Inara
    you call your boss/teacher Badger
    you call your sister 'Mei Mei' (chinese for love)
    when you learn to play the ballad of Serenity on your guitar
    You still think that Firefly can return as a tv show
    or that you trick yourself into thinking when you put a Firefly dvd on: its in regular syndication.
    you posted in this thread and got everything that was said.



    "Mei mei" means "little sister" in chinese, not love.

    just wanted to get that straight.

    Sorry if this is posted elsewhere, I really haven't perused much of Firefly's forum...but here's a thought.

    How do we convince Joss Whedon to cast Gina Torres (Zoe) as Wonder Woman?  I think that would be awesome.  She is, after all, a "warrior woman" .

    I honestly think she is a little old for what Joss has in mind (If ANYONE can know what's in his mind). He seems to like younger women (girls) in heroic roles. I think he would pick Summer (River) before Gina

    You know you watch too much Firefly when...

    First off, there is no such thing as TOO MUCH Firefly or Serenity..ever!

    Anyways, here's my list, short but sweet:

    1.When you are watching Indeoendance Day and the first thing you do when they go into Area 51 is yell "JAYNE!!!"
    2. You start randomly muttering chinese sayings and you're friends just look at each other and go "Not again!"
    3.You have actually tried to juggle geese.
    4. You cannot eat souvlaki or shish kabob for fear that Wash will be reborn just so you can impale him again

    When you're watching Dead Like Me and you see a goth girl behind the counter of a music store and yell "Kaylee!"

    You try to learn Chinese, just so you can say "The explosive diahrrea of an elephant"

    You insult people with a stream of frightenly accurate stream of Mandarin where upon finishing they look at you and say 'What' to which you reply 'You don't want to know'

    You buy a browncoat and sew patches on like Mal

    You call a 'plaster' a 'weave'

    Hahaha. Great thread.

    -when "Stitch Hitchun" replaced "Fess Higgins" on your MSN name
    -when you tried to use "The Ballad of Jayne" as your musical theatre audition song
    -when you memorized some of the more intricate Chinese proclamations in episodes and wrote down all the other ones so you *could* memorize them if you wanted to
