Words of the Day for May 2010

People leave us lovely words in the amusingly named dick, along with short, factual and concise definitions. No really. Here's this month's words so far...

Monday May 31st, 2010

firefly
Amazing sci-fi show that was axed by the Evil Fox after about 10 episodes...now available as a 13 episode DVD and soon to be available as a film, it charts the story of nine people living on a spaceship and getting up to all kinds of mischief. Cross the sharp writing team of Buffy with a little of the A Team and Babylon 5 and throw in a touch of Spaceballs and a healthy dollop of spaghetti western and hey, it sounds unlikely, but it all works.

Home to lines as great as:

Wash: Psychic? Sounds like something out of science fiction.

Zoe: We live on a spaceship dear

and:

Zoe: Sir, I think you have a problem with your brain being missing.

Dead good. Go see.

mums
When you’re not feeling too well, no matter how old you are, or how much you think you’ve outgrown it, your mum is always there to cook you up some nice dinner and get you a rate nice cup o’ coffee to cheer you up.

And why is it that you can never put on pillow cases or quilt covers as well as your mum?

I think that until the day I die I will still not be able to put on a pillow case without the pillow falling out of it after a few hours. And whenever I put my duvet in a fresh cover it seems to have migrated over to one side of it within minutes.

But when mums do it they have magic staying power. They can go for days without a sign of movement and still have that fresh-bedding feel. It’s some sort of mystical mum-power or something.

Mums are great.
