New on Shlomi Fish’s Homepage: Summerschool at the NSA the screenplay + New Factoids
Here are the recent updates for Shlomi Fish’s Homepage. This time, the highlight is some interesting new content.
Summerschool at the NSA, subtitled “As the sling shoots, grown-up men will sob”, is a screenplay, which I completed and is in a usable condition. The Hollywood actresses Sarah Michelle Gellar (of Buffy fame) and Summer Glau (of xkcd notability) conspire to kick the ass of the NSA (= the United States government’s National Security Agency), while using special warfare that is completely non-violent:
[ Black screen, SMG’s (= Sarah Michelle Gellar’s) voice, while emulating her daughter. ]
SMG: Humpty dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty dumpty had a great fall. And all the King's horses, and all the King's men could not put Humpty together again.
[ Screen showing SGlau (= Summer Glau) laughing. SMG and she are sitting at a diner together. ]
SGlau: [Stops laughing.] Oh my God, Sarah, your daughter’s so smart.
SMG: And… funny!
SGlau: Yes. Well, what does she like aside from Mother Goose?
SMG: Oh, she loves My Little Pony. She and I watch it almost every week together.
SGlau: Wow, you're a pega-sister, too?
SMG: I'm not addicted to My Little Pony. I swear! I can quit any time. Just let me watch one… more… episode. [giggles]
SGlau: Hah, hah. For your information, my My Little Pony addicts’ support group meets every second and fourth Saturday of the month, and I am currently at step five of our twelve step program.
SMG: Sounds like a plan. I'll consider joining.
Tomorrow never dies, unless Chuck Norris volunteers to take it out of its misery.
The Chuck Norris of the Buffyverse, has been secretly training under Buffy’s supervision, and so far - lost every battle with her.
Clarissa Darling can start from “I think therefore I am” and prove that the grass is green, that there are about 365 days in a year, and that Isaac Newton formulated the Law of Gravitation back in 1687.
There are some new quotes in the UNIX-like fortune cookies’ collections:
I recall discussing Buffy with a Jewish American friend, who used to be secular, and now has become an observant Jew, and married a woman who properly converted to Orthodox Judaism, and they have some children. We discussed the fact that Sarah Michelle Gellar was Jewish, and yet that many men (and some Lesbian women) were more attracted to Alyson Hannigan’s character, Willow Rosenberg, who was a shy and sheepish, redhead, Jewess. Then when I mentioned that Hannigan was only a maternal Jew, he said she is “kosher” (because someone whose mother is Jewish and who did not convert to a different religion, is a bona-fide Jew). I found it amusing that you refer to women by the same word as you do to food, but I think the ancient Hebrew word "kasher" also means "approved", "appropriate", "legal", etc.
In any case, both Hannigan and Gellar are now married, and so trying to separate between them and their husbands is not kosher. ;-)
Finally, the main navigation menu sports a new and more usable CSS style thanks to the great work of Joe Crawford. Thanks, Joe!
