These TZ moments seem to happen to you quite frequently. It must be part of that Ineffable Plan, as it relates to you and those with whom you come in contact.
:-O
Or do I just tell about the TZ moments, while everyone else has them and just doesn't feel compelled to announce them? :lol:


Could be. I have my share of TZ moments also. :-O What I want to know is: did you accidentally come upon that Yeats poem?
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.

Nope. I knew the "slouching towards" bit at the end of GO related to a poem about the second coming and googled it to find the rest.

BTW, I don't relate all my JDOCD moments, just the more Twilight Zone ones. There was a Sunday a couple of weeks ago in which the Washington Post referenced Johnny, Neil Gaiman, and Terry Pratchett in three separate articles, and I didn't need to tell everyone about that (until now). (The Johnny reference was related to airline security--that mascara was being confiscated from women and from men who wanted to look like Johnny Depp. Silly and gratuitous, since it's eyeliner, not mascara.)

What the heck? :lol: Well, it's both eyeliner and mascara. But sorry, guys, you don't stand a chance. :grin: But Fansmom, I think you have right antennae for these articles.

Thanks for the correction, Raven! Maybe it's the forgetting-to-breathe that causes my eyesight to lose focus when CJS is on the screen! :thud: :blush: Maybe I need to go see it a fifth time . . .
