Let me steal a few seconds of non-fevered coherence to say that I finished Firefly with Serenity while bedridden and now feel I can honorably use the word "shiny" to describe things that are not but are otherwise pretty cool.

On the plus side, we're almost all better now.
On the down side:

Additionally, I learned something very valuable from Firefly, and applicable in everyday life.

While we're on the Doctor Who line,
See? Awesomeness is not a coincidence.

So I would love to get a bunch of people together one year and go trick-or-treating as the cast of Firefly. I call Inara. Not because it's always been a secret wish of mine to masquerade as a high-class courtesan, but because she gets to wear the. most. beautiful costumes.
Plus, I have the hair for it. Awesome.

Speaking of group costumes, the Squirt is in perfect hair shape to pull off a mean Draco Malfoy! Wouldn't that be--you know--awesome? But they don't make Slytherin robes in sizes that small, and I don't have time to make (hahahahaahahahaha!!!) one, so I'm reserving that for next year.
I'll go as Hermione. Because . . . I also have the hair for it . . . also.
So for now, it defaults to Wizard of Oz. Because my youngest sister has been Dorothy for the past twelve years straight and has all the costuming; because a little scarecrow works well as an adorable standalone Halloween costume for a toddler; and because I never tire of the traditional witch costume!
