the navel of a firefly

More minimalist holiday season updates!

Made a Glorious Trainwreck and went to the company party last night. I guess it was good to dig out my car if nothing else. The party was decent enough, if excessively wedding-reception-y. "Semi-formal", which brought back all those memories of high school dances...

Video of the Moment
"What if Obi-Wan had used Force Speed?"

--Wow, I must be slipping with my Star Wars geek cred, I had to look up "Force Speed" (mostly from some of the video games, Jedi can sometimes move very fast.) Still, I laughed.

Quote of the Moment
You can take all the sincerity in Hollywood, place it in the navel of a firefly and still have room enough for three caraway seeds and a producer's heart.

...another lame QotD, but I just love that he picked "navel of a firefly", as opposed to some other insect, because it subtly reflects the Hollywood glamor thing.
Holiday Party, a bit too highschool danceish for me. They gave us plastic bracelets, ala "ok to drink" ones from college.
Wow, 5 pieces of spam for Microsoft Office products snuck through gmail's spam filter... it's been a while.
Flann's, the local pub, has started adding fruit to most of their meals... something seasonal, like an apple. Kinda nice!
