"get your act together forthwith"

From nakeisha:

Chances are people you don't even know are being introduced to your journal every day, either randomly or through someone else. In addition to recent entries, people can get to know you better by what you posted in the past. With that in mind post a link to your entries on this day exactly six months ago, nine months ago, and a year ago. If there was no entry on that day, link the closest date.

Today's quote of the day is for 24 fans, courtesy of Television Without Pity:

Did you know that Glenn Morshower, the actor who plays Aaron, is a motivational speaker in real life? I bet he's really good at it, too. Even if all he does is go up to people on the street and drawl, "Sir, I must urge you in the strongest possible terms to get your act together forthwith." That would totally work on me.

-M. Giant, "24: Day Five: 4-5am," Television Without Pity

Thank you for posting these links; if only for the Iceland one; we were also there last year (in our case, May). A truly amazing country, especially for the geology; the sheer proliferation of waterfalls, glaciers, geysers and volcanoes was absolutely stunning.

Isn't it amazing? I was astounded by how young the actual landmass is, and how much they are still involved in a kind of "terraforming" project, introducing different plants and such. The volcanic geology was breathtaking. Did you get out into the countryside much? I only did for about two days, and I wish I had done so more. I was particularly smitten by the Icelandic horses - next time I want to go on a riding tour! Was that your first visit there? (It was mine.)

Yes, that was our first visit there, but I hope it won't be our last. We had about four days in Reykjavik; then four days touring the southern part of the country, with an excellent tour company, who got us right off the beaten track; then a few days on the little island of Heimaey, off the south coast. We did take a short horse ride on Heimaey, but Creatrix picked that time to discover an allergy to horses. Asking for anti-histamines in an Icelandic pharmacy is not fun!

I love that quote, and I totally agree. Aaron rocks. He's had some of the best moments this season. It's been great seeing him in action, helping jack go after Walter, heading out and rescuing Palmer the Younger, and his growing relationship with First Lady Sugarbaker.

"Aaron! What are you doing?!"

"Defending your Office, Sir."

ROFLOL! I love it - First Lady Sugarbaker and Palmer the Younger! I squealed out loud when Aaron called the president Charles. Beautifully done. He and Chloe are my heroes.

ROFLOL! I love it - First Lady Sugarbaker and Palmer the Younger!

That's what I've been calling her since the beginning of the season. :)

I loooooooove Chloe, she's a fantastic supporting character. I hated her when she first showed up, but warmed to her over the season and now only Jack is higher in my affections. She's the only character I know that can tell someone "thank you" and make it sound like "f(il)k you." :)

Ooh I get to be the snarky one! I will practice my snappy deliveries and study my Joss Whedon scripts immediately!
May. 22nd, 2006 03:02 pm (UTC)
LOL! Whedon is the master, so you should be in good hands. :) Being a "punk mercenary" sounds like fun, actually!
