You all continue to amuse me.

Quotes of the Moment - April

I must hasten to assure you peoples, despite the plethora of OMGARGGHH posts lately, I am totally fine, just a little stressed and in need of venting.

That said, now with the quotes! If it appears that I am a toad-eater for nos this month, it's only because her turn of phrase cracks my shit up. The rest of you need to TRY HARDER.

Also, I am too lazy to cut this. You'll just have to deal, I'm afraid.

My fandom has arguments about whether a character is better or worse than himself. Can your fandom do that? Do not answer if your fandom is DS9. - nostalgia_lj
