Is friends-only. Not because I'm so awesome, but I like to know who's reading.

Has one public post, here. Comments are not required, but it's nice to know why or how you got here.

Contains little fandom content these days. I still squeal about books and TV shows, but for the most part, my journal is heavily real-life and will probably stay that way.

Drusilla: I'm naming all the stars.
Spike: You can't see the stars, love; that's the ceiling. Also, it's day.
Drusilla: I can see them, but I've named them all the same name, and there's terrible confusion.

Min glanced at Flora, then turned back to Ruby. "Another thing—do you know what the phrase 'Don't count your chickens before they hatch' means?"

"Don't think you're a beautiful chicken if you aren't?" Ruby guessed.

"Not exactly," replied Min.

Caroline Julian: Listen up, you people. The verdict is gonna come down any minute. Maybe we'll win, maybe we'll lose. But this I do know: you people have got to get your sand together, you hear me? Booth and you scientist-android-brainiacs, you got somethin' very special here. But you are losing it. [to Booth] Dropping serial killers off of balconies. And ... [to Angela] ... blabbing suspect's names to vengeful fathers. [to Cam] Cuttin' into heads before their times, gettin' poisoned. [to Zack] Gettin' blown up because you go grabbin' things you shouldn't have. [to Hodgins] Taking photographs from frames. [to Booth] Getting a perfectly good car smashed to bits for NO good reason. [to all] Get it together! Start using your over-sized heads! This is the real world. Now, I know bug man here handed in his resignation. My official Justice Department recommendation is the following: we win the case, he gets his job back. We lose ... Booth shoots him.
