Some days I just feel like my brain is plugged in wrong. See, I have this knack for picking out obscure patterns and references that sometimes drives people around me crazy. I think it’s interesting making all these odd connections but sometimes it just doesn’t quite catch. Those are the ones that bug me.

The latest one: I watch Castle and it’s great. It’s funny, ABC is running it in order and I never have to guess what night and what time it is going to air. Hear that FOX? It’s amazing how well a good show does when people can find it to watch it. Anyway, last night at some point Nathan Fillion tweeted 

Anyone catch the obscure Firefly reference in Castle just now? 6 min in?

Ummm… No. Surely I would have caught anything said about Firefly, I’ve watched the DVD’s countless times. (Hello? FOX?) How could I miss a Firefly reference? And of course I didn’t tape Castle last night, I watched it so I had to tape CSI Miami. I had to track down a friend that did tape it to get another look.

6 minutes in, nothing. A minute either side of that, nothing. Watching again. Nothing except Castle playing with his hands after he pulls on his latex gloves; don’t need extra fingerprints at the crime scene do we? I thought it was odd last night but hey. Watch again. Nothing but the gloves. And Castle’s hands. Flashing a peace… not a peace sign, a two. With blue gloves.

Ack! Two by two with hands of blue! I can even hear River saying it in my head over the clicking of pieces falling together.

That thunking noise? Ignore that, it’s my head banging against the side of my desk, the top is too messy.  Maybe I’ll pull out Firefly tonight after NCIS, NCIS:LA and SoA. Wow, it must be initial night.

Y’all have fun, I have to find supper, can’t miss Gibbs.
