Yup, I'm a Browncoat now, too! So's Tam-Tam as well..!

"Nouveau" Kaylee by Megan Lara
So, this is the part where I write about how 'Firefly' was just okay, not as special as every has made it out to be. It's also where I tell you how I didn't tear up at the end of 'Serenity'. But, yeah, that would be lying, and, well, Spacedog ain't about to start lyin' in his own blog posts!


Over the course of the last 2 weeks, Tam-Tam and I finally took the plunge and decided to watch 'Firefly' and 'Serenity, both on Netflix. We're not quite sure why it took us *this* long, but it did.

We probably could have hammered it out in one weekend, but there was so much to absorb and savor. From the caustic wit of Jayne to ├╝ber-cute mechanical skills of Kaylee to the awkward-yet-not-overplayed sexual tension of sorts between Serenity's captain, Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds, and Inara, his ship's resident Companion, it was like a smorgasbord of awesome creative with lots of creativity and equally brilliant acting to make it all work. To have rushed through it would have been nothing short of criminal!

Wagging My Tail: Exciting Things Afoot in the Year to Follow..

So, in just under 7 hours, South Jersey, and the surrounding tri-state area, will be hit with our THIRD (!) snowstorm of 2014's Winter-That-Won't-Give-Up! I could on with that, but you what? I'm not gonna. Like so many others in the area this season, Tam-Tam and I are sick to death of it, and both of us believe we are showing the signs of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). That said, I think the less we say about snow, winter, and any past/impending storms, the better..

Looking ahead, a lot of good things are lining themselves up...
