You scored as Captain Malcolm Reynolds. Also known as “Captain Tight Pants”. Simply put, you are a Browncoat-turned-pirate, but with a conscience. You are a leader of men and women, but you tend to fall for whores.

created with

Simon, the Doctor


Captain Malcolm Reynolds


Inara, the "Companion"


First Mate Zoe


Kaylee, the Mechanic


Jayne Cobb, resident bad-ass




Shepherd Book


Wash, the Pilot


I had a very nice day today except for the ridiculous roiling gut from hell. that pretty much sucked. And yet, really nice day. Feel free to keep commenting on ‘well now’ or just add to my living alone list… :)

happy thanksgiving all you canadians and wanna be canadians out there!



  1. Like about living alone:
    • Bathroom is always yours; no waiting.
    • There is no nagging.
    • No one to interrupt you when you’re chopping up a body for easier disposal.
    • You control the remote.
    • You pick the movie.
    • You always get the best parking space.

    Sucky things about living alone:
    • No one to blame if you run out of toilet paper.
    • No one to help bring in/put away groceries.
    • Nobody to wake you up if you oversleep.
    • Never using the living room.
    • No one to wait around for cable/repair/phone guy while you go to work.
    • No one to cut up into small pieces to dispose of easier.

  2. Liked about living alone:
    -no one to nag me about not putting my clothing away
    -could hang out naked and no one cared
    -it was ok to keep my bikes and surfboards in the living room

    Suckly things about living alone:
    -no one to nag me about doing daily tasks that I should have done
    -no one to go to the pharmacy for you or cart you to the ER if you get a major booboo

    You can still live with others and be alone. Examples:
    1) if you’re watching tv and the other person wants to read, they go into one room and you stay where the tv is. it is sort of cool to fall into one mass and each do their own thing
    2) not looking at the person you live with as someone who is a part of your life but as someone who is just living there, this is applicable when you’re working different shifts

    All said I’d rather be alive than alone than dead and having missed out on some of this stuff. :)

  5. I’d get your tampons Sass.

    Good things about living alone:
    – walking around in your underwear or nude even and not getting groped incessantly.

    -Filling the cabinets with chocolate and crap you’re not supposed to call nutritional, but do.

    – Definetly drinking out of the carton and eating from the pot.

    – Cleaning up only after yourself, which I find now was a great commoditiy.

    – Coming and going as I please, to wherever I please without hesitation or 20 questions

    – Not having to explain the blaring light emmiting from the halogens in the walk-in closet.

    Sucky things about living alone:

    – No one to grope you insessantly when wearing panties around the house.

    – No one to smoke the harvest with.

    – Not being able to reach that one spot on your back when washing.

    – Talking to yourself, because god dammit there’s nobody else that will listen.

    Incidentally, I make sure I always have toilet paper Doz. And NO NO NO you do not chop the body… acid in the bathtub my good man, acid in the bath tub.

  7. There are some little beetles that are will make short order of a body but not the bones.

    DZ: I’ve had to do that. Fear is when you’re standing in a Walmart at 5am and the frigging POS scanner won’t pick up the item – and the cashier is getting ready to scream “I NEED A PRICE ON TAMPOONS ON AISLE 5!”.

  8. i *HEART* you guys I really do.

    also i wander around nude as much as possible because clothing is sucky… not so much panties because yeah ICK!

    blaring light in the walkin closet!! *awesome!*

    dzer: trust me, if we’re sleeping together and i’m sitting on the toilet going ‘go to the store now’ you’ll go.

    mmmmm dark chocolate and coffee crunchy bits *drool* (fave chocolate bar, it’s called eclats de cafe which means explosions of coffee)

    mmmm only cleaning up after me… all good.
