Regular readers know I have an marginally unhealthy crush on Felicia Day. Of course, so do millions of other people, so she's probably relatively safe from me. But are we safe from... colliding galaxies? Apparently, only Felicia knows for sure, as she demonstrates in this NASA PSA: Hey! That was funny! Like, really funny! Lots of inside jokes for Felicia's fans, too ("Is this your first time doing an internet video, Miss Day?") A lot of times videos like this are just painful, but this one is actually really good. Felicia is great, and the Sean Astin stuff cracked me up. And I think someone's been reading my book... OK, probably not. But the way she talked about all the astronomy was very natural and smooth, so I just know deep in her heart Felicia's harboring a strong and undeniable love for astronomer. I mean astronomy. Yes! Astronomy! Of course that's what I meant!

Sigh. We'll always have Comic Con. Tip o' the Guilded lily (see what I did there?) to Javier Pazos.
