…Except that I’m totally going to comment because I can’t shut up.  If you weren’t reading here a year and a half ago you are totally not going to understand this but I can’t really explain it because I sort of implied that I wouldn’t talk about it anymore, but there is no fucking way that I can’t post this, so let me just say that 1) I love Nathan Fillion and no one should fuck with him or even mention this to him because I think it makes him sad and even God cries when Captain Mal is sad, and 2) celebrities holding random, bizarre things for the joy of being silly automatically soaks up oil spills and makes kitten’s eyes extra shiny.

And so, without further ado, a 51st-century rogue time agent (slash) Doctor’s companion just being fucking awesome:

The man manages to make everything look sexy. I’m pretty sure he impregnated that spool just by holding it.

PS.  Special thanks to the fantastic John Barrowman and to my sweet friend Maria.

PPS.  This doesn’t count as a real post.  I’ll post something real in a minute after you’ve had a second to fist-pump with glee and/or be extremely confused.

John stopped signing, came to her rescue, helped her get up, found her a chair so she could wait until it was her time, and went, “Would you like a vodka tonic?” My friend was in such shock, she only realized Captain Jack had rescued her when another kid in line (whom she’d never met) gave her a bear hug and went, “OMG!!

Get what I asked him? He said for the first time in my life I get how man can be attracted to another man. I literally dropped to the floor laughing!

    I then paid to meet him again but this time a personalized photo-op. He was entertaining the whole time people were waiting their turn for hours to meet him. When it was my turn he asked what pose I wanted. I asked him to pretend I was the most beautiful woman in the world. Without hesitation he reached under my long skirt to scoop me up. I SHRIEKED as I felt his hands get higher and yelled ‘STOP- I haven’t shaved that far up my legs today!!’. He nearly dropped me when his legs buckled from laughter. I explained ‘Listen- I’m Canadian. We only shave where necessary- the rest is for warmth’. He told me that was the funniest thing he heard in weeks. I was so turned on by that I made out with him hardcore and did all kinds of naughty things that had mothers covering their children’s eyes. Not really but in my head that’s how it ended.

    It’s my fave picture ever! Okay maybe after my kid’s newborn photos and my wedding pictures. Maybe.

There is nothing about this that makes anyone small, but lots of ways that it makes people huge (as stars, as fans, as human beings). I have been impressed with John Barrowman for a long time, so this totally fits into my expectation of him. Congratulations!

When her turn came to get her photo signed she was so excited she couldn’t talk and just kept stuttering (and spraying quite a bit of saliva), and he got up, came around the table, hugged her, patted her back, and just sort of rocked back and forth with her a little until she calmed down. Then he signed her photo and let her friends take photos of the two of them together instead of making her get in another line and pay another fee to get a photo with him. I was smitten.

    This is awesome. But I don’t want to give up on Captain Mal. Perhaps now that twine has been done he’d be willing to hold some other object or objects. I’m proposing those Russian nesting dolls. Unless he also collects taxidermy. Then, model’s choice.

You’ve generated one of the sexiest photos on the Internet. Thanks for all the fun and laughs. AND Surprises?! The captain holding twine! He’s never looked so good! Don’t pinch me. Just in case.

  317. If it were just John Barrowman holding twine this would be unbelievably awesome, but it’s not just John Barrowman holding twine. It’s John Barrowman holding twine in a picture that looks like one of those cheesy portrait photos you used to get done at the mall where the photographer was a guy who looked sort of like Sonny Bono and had his powder blue silk shirt half open so you could see that his chest looked like shag carpeting, and that he was wearing a big gold medallion. Also he was wearing so much Brut that if you lit a match in there the entire mall would explode.

    Nathan Fillion is in “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters” and owns OPS – Olympus Parcel Service. He is total greatness as Hermes! And the entire time he was in the OPS warehouse holding random thnigs, I kept HOPING and HOPING he would pick up a ball of twine just for you! He did pick up a cool tape gun that made things disappear. Can we count that???

  354. When I was a teen, I was on my way home in the wee hours of the morning. I was late for curfew (again), so when I came to a red light and did not see a car ANYWHERE, I went ahead and blew through it. I then noticed some headlights in my rearview mirror (I hadn’t thought to check behind me before becoming a law breaker). As I made my way home, the car kept following me — closely. I was freaking out, thinking it was a cop or a serial killer(I couldn’t decide which was worse at that point). When I turned into my driveway and the car followed me, the hyperventilation kicked into high gear. Then the garage door opened the car pulled around me and into the garage. It was way worse than a copy or serial killer. It was my dad — a doctor who had been called into the hospital and was on his way home — and caught me running a red AND breaking curfew. As you can imagine, I didn’t drive for awhile after that.

Just realized that my comment would have made MUCH more sense had I actually attached it to your post about blowing through stop signs instead of the one about Cap’n Jack’s twine — unless he or his twine have also disregarded public safety. But I don’t think there are stop signs or red lights to consider when you are in a TARDIS.

  358. Okay, Jenny, you just won a debate for me. Have been introducing my boys to Dr Who this summer while my (military) husband was gone for a month, so when he got home he decided he wanted to start watching them. Three episodes into Eccleston’s Doctor, he was ready to give up. I told him it gets better about episode 6 or so and then continues being progressively more awesome, but he was skeptical. I read him your comment up there and he is willing to continue watching.

    Because you are the ultimate authority on all worthwhile things.
