I'm not about to start doing this on a regular basis. John Gushue does a remarkably good job of picking out quotes on his blog every day. But every now and then something jumps out at you that you just feel like sharing to the world.
This one comes from the always reliable Kevin Smith, who interviewed James Callis (Dr. Gauis Baltar on Battlestar Galactica) during last weekend's New York Comic Con.
"James, this season we saw you get into a three-way with Six and Xena, Warrior Princess. If you were also to nail Gillian Anderson, circa '99, that would be the trifecta, right?"
Admittedly you need to be somewhat steeped in geek lore to get all the references there, but I read that and laughed out loud. However, once I stopped laughing I noticed that I was nodding my head, meaning that subconsciously I was agreeing with Smith. That yeah, duh, obviously that would be the trifecta.
Which was entirely too depressing a thought so I went and whacked my head off a wall for a few minutes. Sadly, it didn't help and made my co-workers look at me strangely.
Sigh. Funny quote, though...
Oh, I almost forgot, I stepped on the scales today as I forgot to do it last night. I don't know how, but I'm down about 3.5 pounds to 234.6. So what the hell, I'll take it. It's nice to be heading downwards again after the past few weeks.
