Yes, that is indeed a comma immediately followed by a period in that quote above. It’s the last line spoken in the last episode (well, the last natural episode – I’ll explain that later) of Joss Whedon’s wonderful (albeit unjustly abbreviated) tv series Firefly. You really have to see that episode, Objects in Space, and hear the line delivered to appreciate why I include both comma and period.
That paragraph above may give you some crumpled inkling of what this blog will be like. I suppose some of you are shaking your heads, clucking your tongues, and clicking your way to the exit. Thanks for your visit. I do appreciate it. For anyone still here, I hope you enjoy the read.
Now, where was I? Oh, right.
Well,. Here I am. I’m known (well, mostly unknown) on OkCupid.com as forgottenman, and that’s where you can find out
all more than you really want to know enough about me. I really think OkCupid is awesome pretty good; however, the new overlords at Match.com have all but eviscerated access to its nifty old journal feature. So this is now my shiny, new OkC journal, all big empty white spaces waiting for me to fill with blah blah blah.
As Mal framed it so succinctly, “I aim to misbehave.”
(“languorous polemic”? C’mon, is that even a real thing, or am I already reduced to nailing random pretty adjectives onto cool innocent nouns?)
