My parents win at fandom.

I told my mom what Prof.B. had said and she said it sounded like I was doing good.  "Yeah, I try not to suck," I replied.  "Who has that line?  Buffy?  Willow?"  "Oh yeah!  'I didn't mean to... suck.'"  I am forever connecting things to Joss lines (and song lyrics) and we are quel impressed that my mom made a connection that didn't occur to me.

(Also: rock on, classics.  I now get the Harvard Magazine delivered to my house -- by virtue of being an employee, I suppose -- and the cover story is "Resisting Temptation: Economics discovers the irrational."  The cover image?  "detail from the 1909 oil painting Ulysses and the Sirens by Herbert James Draper"  I am amused that it is "©The Bridgeman Library/Getty Images")

I was looking at a catalog recently, and it has t-shirts saying "I'm Too Sexy To Be" and comes in 40, 50, and 60.  I would enjoy these shirts worn by someone older than the emblazoned age, but generally they really bug me.  The blurb says: "You're not getting older....You're getting better!  And our tees let the whole world know it," but that's not how I read them.

From TVGuide, February 27, 2006, interview [Craig Thomashoff] with Jorja Fox:
What do you do when you're not working on the show?  I've had a theater company for seven or eight years.  A group of us produced a musical last year.  It's called "Dear Bernard," [and it's] about a woman from a small town in England who moves to America to try and make it as a star.  We're taking the show to London in June.

Will you be in it?  I wish I had the talent to do musical theater.  I'd put together a band and go on the road.  We do have a lunchtime jam band on the CSI set, though.  Lots of crew people are in it.  Gary Dourdan (Warrick) plays a mean guitar and bass.  Robert David Hall [Dr. Robbins] plays guitar.  Marg Helgenberger [Catherine] plays piano.

Is an of this jamming going to show up in CSI?  I have been pitching an all-musical CSI episode for five years.  Grissom is in the lab and some chemical affects him badly and this whole thing takes place in his head.  While he's delirious, the show becomes a musical.  Everybody would have to sing.  Quite probably it would be the last episode ever.
