And Another Thing...

More ranting about 300...:

An army of 300 men (and their fearless leader) walk off to war, each wearing: a leather nappy/speedos, a red cape, a sword, and toting a helmet and a spear. No camp (or heterosexual or other preference) followers, no pack mules, no nothing. They get to the "hot gates" aka Thermopylae (for gawd's sake!), and two days later, Leonidas happens to say: "Eat hearty, my men!"* OK, what were they eating/going to eat??? Seagulls? The enemy?? Each other???? Their codpieces?! Colour me idiotic...

And in other needless news/information, which Serenity character are you?

Your results:
You are Kaylee Frye (Ship Mechanic)

Kaylee Frye (Ship Mechanic)
Zoe Washburne (Second-in-command)
Inara Serra (Companion)
Malcolm Reynolds (Captain)
Wash (Ship Pilot)
Dr. Simon Tam (Ship Medic)
River (Stowaway)
Jayne Cobb (Mercenary)
Derrial Book (Shepherd)
A Reaver (Cannibal)
You are good at fixing things.
You are usually cheerful.
You appreciate being treated
with delicacy and specialness.

The odd thing is, Kaylee is the character with whom I have always identified, and who is the only thoroughly "nice" person on the whole ship... Roll on, that "delicacy and specialness" treatment... I'm waiting... any time now is good... (I have the day off tomorrow...)!

Yours after 2/3 of a bottle of Yellowglen...

Tournee du Chat Noir
And yes, we did kick some kitty arse last weekend - more info when I am sober enough to type in English!

* While chomping down an apple, which presumably he kept stuffed down the front of his speedos, which explained the peculiar attraction he held for his wife...

Oh, and, still waiting.... that "delicacy and specialness treatment"... all agog, I've blocked out 4 hours tomorrow.... any takers...?????

They ate the enemy. Naturally.

They could have eaten the script. There was enough corn in that to keep an army going to decades.

'Kicked kitty arse', love that expression. Did you send some kitties home in tears? We thought about bringing Merlin along so that people could see a real cat and not some pampered ball of fur.

I'm Malcolm Reynolds (Captain). Since I've never watched the show, I have no idea what I am, except in real life, I'm no bloke.
