A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

December 12, 2005


I don't like science fiction. If it involves a bunch of people flying around in space ships I'm not interested. But I'm not completely closed minded either. Molly keeps telling me I might like Firefly. She gave me the series on DVD. I'm leery of Joss Wheedon. Everyone kept telling me how great Buffy was. I got it from the library and watched at least 4 episodes and could not for the life of me understand why anyone would watch it.

Yesterday at work I sold yarn to two different people to make a Jayne Cobb hat. Everything on tv was a repeat so I started watching Firefly. I'm not in love but it's cute. It's really more of a western. Which only makes me sigh a little deeper every time they get back on the spaceship. Anyway, Wes wanders in while I'm watching it and starts to spout off boatloads (spaceshiploads?) of Firefly trivia. I stare at him for a long time. How the hell does he know all this stuff about a show he's never seen? A friend and former co-worked is a HUGE fan. My knitting wheels start turning.

Really? He's a huge fan? Would he like a hat?
