It's kind of like what my parents call a senior moment - when they're caught wondering what it was they were thinking about no less than 2 seconds ago.

A Firefly moment is similar - it's that moment when you're at work or in the car, or just out and about something brings Firefly so close to mind that it makes you miss the next 2-5 minutes of whatever happens to be going on around you.

Case in point: My art school orientation last Saturday. A fella in a suit and tie picks up the complimentary basket of candy and starts tossing sweets at us. Some of the students who weren't paying attention got hit rather than catching and his comrades gave him some grief about it. When he got around to introducing himself, he said "MY name's Russ (Something). If I hit you with the candy, my name's Mike (Something)."

In my mind I heard "RussMike" and then "YoSafBridge." At that moment Russ became "RussMike" and shall forever remain so. This Firefly moment is likely the reason why I don't remember his last name.

I've seen him twice since, and I'm sure he's thinking he ought to know why I smile like that every time I see him.

I work at an oil refinery and once a month we do fire training. We have a small fire monitor mounted on wheels that is called a Firefly. The instructor always tells the class that the advantage of using the Firefly in fighting a fire is that you can move it quickly and get it close to the fire.

It brings tears to my eyes.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Last week I was in Home Depot, and a guy stocking some hardware knocked over several boxes of door locks. Of course, you know what came into to my head.

Uh oh, another box-dropping, man-ape gone wrong thing.

I too, have had the occasion of Firefly coming into my head. I more or less have had too many to speak of, or to remember, but I did one time get very angry with a friend of mine and started to swear in the Chinese from Firefly. My friend had no clue what I was talking. I also say Gorram whenever I need to make a point. My friends ask "What are you talking about?" What am I talking about, indeed...

A new play just started at the theatre where I work and I was totally thrown off when I saw that one of the actresses has the first name Jayne, spelt with the "Y". She's playing "Death".

I actually said aloud "Hey, Death's name is Jayne!"

My coworkers stared at me blankly so I just amused myself with a clip show in my head.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


I am surprised sometimes by the things that remind me of Firefly. It can be something as simple as the way someone speaks, or a word or phrase from the show that I hear on TV or on the radio.

The most recent example I can think of is when my step daughter said "Nothing can stop me" and what I heard was River saying "No power in the verse can stop me". Imagine my eight year old's surprise when I busted out laughing at her.

"May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one."

I went to see Kevin Smith speak day before yesterday, which he does as all Q&A.

I don't even recall which person asking which question it was, but at one point Kevin asks them a question back like, "Well, have you...?"

And the guy replies, "Not so much."

My brain just automatically derailed to Firefly.

"Wacky fun..."

I was just looking in the Excel spreadsheet containing the giving records for the church where I work. There, on the right hand side, was the notation "RIVER 03"

It was made for a music group who gave a concert last year, but that wasn't the first thing I thought of.

River's still smiling in my head... should I be worried?

This one young soldier who works in Spidermonkey's shop is sitting there grousing about the task, not being to bright, either and I look up and say:

I was saving a wallpaper for my computer at work. It's a picture of Faramir knee-deep in the river, with Boromir's funeral boat drifting past.

I saved it under the name "River(not her)" because I realized that at some point I'd look at the title and go, "I put that River-with-a-gun picture on my work computer?"

I work in retail and the other day I was helping a tall nicely built black woman with long dark curly hair. I didn't think much of it until her boyfriend/husband person came over to her. He was just slightly shorter than her, white man with blonde kinda messy hair. All I could do was grin incessantly at them while I rang up their sale.

From The Writer's Almanac on MPR for April 9, 2004. It brought Mal's face strongly to mind for me today - you'll know which expression I saw and when it appeared in my mind's eye when you read it.
Quote:

It was on this day in 1865 that General Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to Ulysses S. Grant, effectively ending the American Civil War. In the year leading up to the surrender, the Northern blockade of the South had made it almost impossible for the Confederate army to get proper supplies. Confederate soldiers were fighting without decent food, without proper clothing, in some cases without even shoes. Confederate numbers were also dwindling as many soldiers began to desert.

By 1865, General William Tecumseh Sherman had already marched through Georgia, destroying almost everything in his path, and had begun to march through the Carolinas. The Union Army had been laying siege to Richmond, Virginia, the capital of the Confederacy. At the beginning of April in 1865, Grant launched an offensive that finally captured the city. President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Richmond on April 3rd to see the stars and strips flying above the Richmond capital building. Lincoln said, "Thank God I have lived to see this. It seems to me that I have been dreaming a horrid nightmare for four years, and now the nightmare is over."

Lee's army of about 25,000 fled to the west, without rations, surviving on dried corn that was meant to feed horses. They were followed by Grant's army of more than 100,000. On April 5, Grant sent a message to Lee that said, "General: The result of the last week must convince you of the hopelessness of further resistance on the part of the Army of Northern Virginia in this struggle." Lee wrote back to say, "Though not entirely of the opinion you express of the hopelessness of further resistance on the part of the army of Northern Virginia, I reciprocate your desire to avoid useless effusion of blood, and therefore, before considering your proposition, ask the terms you will offer, on condition of its surrender."

Lee and Grant met at the Appomattox Court House on April 9, Palm Sunday, just after noon. Lee was wearing his best gray Confederate uniform, with a sword at his side, while Grant showed up in a private's shirt, splashed with mud. The two men talked briefly, remembering that they had met during the Mexican War, and then discussed the terms of surrender. After it was over, Grant said, [I felt] sad and depressed at the downfall of a foe who had fought so long and valiantly and had suffered so much for a cause, though that cause was, I believe, the worst for which people ever fought." When the Union soldiers began to cheer and celebrate, Grant ordered them to stop.

Lee rode back to his camp, and crowds of Confederate soldiers along the road began to weep as he passed. One man called out, "I love you just as well as ever, General." When he reached his tent, Lee said to the crowd, "Boys, I have done the best I could for you. Go home now, and if you make as good citizens as you have soldiers, you will do well, and I shall always be proud of you. Goodbye, and God bless you all."

My last thought was "American Unification Day."

A few months ago, I was having a bad day at work when I was asked to do some DTP work on a flier for a local health and meditation class. I looked at the file and saw the name of the class was "Serenity", which immediately had me grinning stupidly at the screen for about five minutes, back in a good mood!

Last week, when watching "Wonderfalls", I totally lost concentration on the episode for a moment after the word "shindig" was used.

It seems like "Firefly" is everywhere!

Hello everyone ! This is my first time posting. I don't know if this counts as a moment, but my two year old daughter and I were playing outside when she saw a butterfly, except she didn't call it a butterfly it was a "firefly". She refuses to call them anything but fireflys now because of how it made me laugh. She also knows the theme song to firefly. I sing it to her all the time.

Oh that definitely counts. I've been reading a book lately entitled "Spring Moon: A Novel of China" about the Chinese period of acclimation to the more western cultures. The chapters often open with poetry, songs, historical tidbits, and Chinese tales, which is where I read about a buddhist convent that was in danger of closing its doors:

"But the Mother Superior had been the scorned widow of a grand house, and losing her home asecond time was unthinkable. A woman of great resourcefulness, she took drastic though not unprecedented steps. No longer would the younger, more comely nuns save their heads. Instead she taught them to paint their faces and saw that they donned gowns of silk and learned the arts of conversation, of the solicitation and return of favors, of sexual pleasure.

"These special nuns were then assigned to overnight guests and to the many cultivated patrons who made regular contributions to the convent's treasury. And while most ladies of the gentry continued to visit the retreate to pray, a few, for a certain sum, found it suitable as well for the conduct of more worldly affairs.

"Thus was the business of mortals conducted together with that of the gods, without any conflict of interest or violation of propriety, and the home of the homeless preserved."

I found myself spending some time wondering how much Inara "sends home" from her own business transactions before I started reading that chapter. Puts a certain sense of nobility on her profession, don't you think?

Im not making this up, but the other day I was on campus at my college and was walking around the corner of the Medical building (we have a large medical school on campus) and there were two guys standing outfront of the building wearing suits with bright blue rubber gloves on. I just about soiled myself.
Probably would have if they hadn't smiled, then taken off their gloves and lit up a smoke.

my daughter had a firefly moment yesterday.
she went to the natural history museum. there is a huge scale display of town (cincinnati) from the past. she said the volunteer kept gathering everyone around for a once-every-seven-minute event. he was very excited, wouldn't say what was going to happen, and made everyone wait.
the event, a burning house in the middle of town starts smoking.
my daughter thinks to herself "that little man loves fire." :-)

If we're going down THAT road, a few weeks back a girl I know was hitting on me (HAH, geeks can get some too) and I heard Book in my head going "If you take sexual advantage of her, you're going to burn in a very special hell". It WAS kind of a Saffron situation, I should point out. But since this is a family friendly site, I say no more.

This morning we were discussing my eventual return home and our Commander made the comment, "Yep. . .another 16 days before the Air Force starts cancelling out flights out of here."

I looked at him and said, "I appreciate your honesty. Not. . .you know. . .ALOT. . ." (Duran Heywood, YoSafBridge's former husband in "Trash")

A couple of days ago, one of the mechanics went on a tirade about all manner of conspiracies. One of his co-workers stood there patiently for a moment before saying, "I hate to interrupt you in the middle of your crazy time, but we have work to do!" I almost died laughing.

Had a Firefly moment this morning @ work. Someone in the hall was humming a tune and it sounded, I swear, like the Ballad of Serenity. I stopped her and asked what song it was, and she said she wasn't sure, she had just heard it somewhere & it stuck in her head.

Now I am sitting here w/ the Ballad running through my head. Wish I had my CD here w/ the song on it.

I just returned from two weeks in London with my family. My children, 13, 10, and 5, live with my wife and me in a small town, population 900. Moving around tubes, footpaths, and so on, especially with luggage, and not inconveniencing everyone else in the UK in the process was a bit of a chore. However, whenever I called out "Blue Hands" they all managed to settle into two abreast more or less instantly.

I have very shiny children.

That's pretty shiny - getting your children to behave with only two words. My mother used to have to yell at me and my brother during car rides, "Walkin' ain't all took up y'know!"

Her father used to say it to her, back in the day. Sounds very Firefly to me now. Something Mal might say to Kaylee and River as they tore through the cargo bay again.

Yesterday on the Today show, Lester used the words "notion" and "fess up" within a sentence of each other.

Laying there in a haze of sleep-deprivation combined with cold medication, I grinned and told my cat, "He's got a very Firefly frame of mind today, doesn't he?"

Simon, my cat, just blinked like it was all normal.

this may look like a response to BC's post, but really it's a better way to deal with a double post...

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me

Take me out to the black
Tell ‘em I ain’t comin’ back.
Burn the land And boil the sea -
You can’t take the sky from me.

Have no place I can be
Since I found Serenity -
But you can’t take the sky from me.

That last lyric always gives me a little chill...

I'm going to the American Craft Council tomorrow. That's a show for fine arts and crafts - glass work, crystal, metalsmithing, metal working, bronze, wood, fabrics, leather - for them as think the Renaissance festival merchandise can be pricey? They are garage sales compared to this. I think only the Catskill Moccassins, Felix Needleworthy and one other costumer in Minnesota measure up to this.

But what am I telling people?

They are garage sales compared to this. I think only the Catskill Moccassins, Felix Needleworthy and one other costumer in Minnesota measure up to this.

But what am I telling people?

"I'm going to the ACC tomorrow to ogle the pretties!"

I'm dyin. Can I come, too?
God bless you Kaylee.

Hey!

Post ACC:

So I'm at my favorite leather vendor's booth. Pretty coats made of sheepskin. I touched the soft sleeve of one, smiled at Karen and said, "Browncoat!"

Then I spied a hat, grinned even bigger and said "Thrillin' heroics hat!"

AERRIN


Mmm. I've played Pern-based RPGs (MOO in this instance) for years, and I've gotten several game friends into Firefly by talking about it so damn much. We have this tendency to try to figure out which Firefly character our character most resembles - and so when Celeste, our very Kaylee-esque character, went to a party (Shindig, of course), we simply couldn't resist the.. puns? Homage? Tribute? Whatever. A sampling, for your snickering pleasure.


Celeste's hovering somewhere, wearing a pink and frilly gather dress, and beaming around at the gather. She's not with anyone, exactly, but the group of eavesdropping apprentices isn't far from her, and she turns to beam at them. "This is just /lovely/, isn't it?" When they don't answer, she turns back to watching, clapping enthusiastically as the dignitaries start to trail out.

Celeste, stationed somewhere near the buffet table, beams one of her super-smiles toward Morallen. "The food's /great/," she informs him brightly. "I think there's some kind of hot cheese." She would have said more, most likely, if she didn't spot the look on Morallen's face quickly followed by Aerrin not far behind him. "Master Aerrin! Did you see all the dresses?" She sighs a bit, wistfully. "I'm definitely making an appointment with the weavers when I get back."

Oh shards. Slinking halted, Morallen at least has the grace to face his fate like a man. Arranging Celeste's hand in the crook of his arm in proper gentlemanly fashion, he lets himself be dragged away with the parting comment to Flynn of "Yeah, and plague is worse'n a head cold, but that doesn't mean you have to rejoice at getting one." And then they're away. "I think I know this one," says Morallen regarding the current tune the Harpers are playing, deftly inserting Celeste into a position in the dance and taking his own mark with a bow. He's still not smiling, or moving with anything other than precise care at making sure Celeste enjoys herself, since he won't be, but at least he's out on the floor?

Celeste trails along behind Morallen, looking quite fetching in her layered-cake dress and beaming happily. "Lucky you," she remarks in reply to his comment on knowing the dance, and off she goes, twirling happily. As she comes back to take Morallen's hand, she raises an eyebrow at her non-smiling face. "What, is this not your type of party?" Another circle and twirl as they seperate, and back again as she comments, "Everyone's so beautiful. Like little bits of colored cloth blowing around."

MALICIOUS


I had a Firefly moment last fall, M-O-N-T-H-S (ok, it was only 2 months but it felt like eons) before the DVD came out. I was watching something I had taped that week on an old VHS tape. When the show ended, I just laid there instead of rewinding, mildly curious about what I had taped over. Thank goodness I did because I caught "War Stories" from it's original air date!! It was just after Mal and Wash get taken. My eyes popped open and I sat straight up. I wanted to cheer with someone, but, alas, no one was there. So I just kind of sputtered, pointing at the TV, looking around the empty room.

I watched it twice that night, my poor ragged little piece of a show. I swear, it was like finding my old security blanket my mom claimed to have thrown out when I was 3 and she wanted to get me to stop sucking my thumb!

I watched it again everytime I missed my show, until Christmas day when I watched my spankin' new DVDs all day long!

I just hate it when I lose my cursor... Missed you at LOTR tonight... The steaks were juicy, the wine was nice and then, there was Viggo! *sigh*

Girls put A Knights Tail in and as the first scene came on I looked up from my computer and said "Whoa! What episode is this? Wash dyed his hair?" Spent the rest of the movie waiting for Serenity to fly by...
