High Five Fandom Phrases

In every fandom, there are certain phrases that, when uttered, can immediately illicit an emotional response. On this week's high five, we are going to talk about my favorite phrases from fandoms and how I personally connect with them.

1) Come along, Pond.

A2-D2 has used this phrase for Treyson whenever he lagged behind somewhere. Treyson has always thought "Pond" was the coolest nickname ever. My Amelia was also partially named for Amelia Pond, and now that she is mobile, I find myself saying this phrase as well. I hope she grows up to be as brave as her namesakes!

2) Always.

This is such a loaded word for this fandom that I do not think I can do it justice in a brief post. I will just leave it here for consideration.

3) Mischief Managed.

I always found it an interesting dichotomy that the closing phrase for the map was "mischief managed." When you think of what the map was used for, rarely was it actually used for mischief. I quickly learned with this fandom that "mischief" was a relative term!

4) Tea. Earl grey. Hot.

There is always time for a nice cuppa. (Follow #100cupsoftea and #100cupsofcoffee as me and fellow nerdy bloggers document our caffeine)

5) Why is the rum gone?

As a family who enjoys their rum, this phrase is thrown around my house all too often! It always bringing a smile to my face as I visualize Captain Jack's look of terror as he realized there was no rum!

I hope your week has been splendid and that you have a lovely weekend. Remember: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cake hole.
