Makes sense I suppose…

…and ties in with being Giles in the “Which Buffy character are you” meme:

You Are The Wayfarer Guide
“I’ll show you the way.”

Your deep insight and quick wisdom never ceases to amaze those around you. You are the guiding light for many of those you know and are not afraid to help anyone else who asks. Not very many acknowledge your tremendous help and effort, but you do not mind that so much. You’ve seen what is in store for them, and will be there should they need your help. You enjoy people in general, but are very selective of who you let see the real you. Others see you as an enigma of sorts, a mystery that is seemingly ever changing.

One thought on “Makes sense I suppose…

  1. This. OED:

    sperm, n. … 7. “Sperm candles or oil.”

    1856 Orr’s Circ. Sci., Pract. Chem. 458 If there be any difference, the light of sperm is a little greater, and that of stearic acid a little whiter. 1890 CLARK RUSSELL Ocean Trag. I. iv. 68 The soft..radiance diffused by the burning sperm.

    One of the most delightful passages from Moby-Dick is the description of the extraction of spermaceti from the corpse of a whale:

    Squeeze! squeeze! squeeze! all the morning long; I squeezed that sperm till I myself almost melted into it; I squeezed that sperm till a strange sort of insanity came over me; and I found myself unwittingly squeezing my co-laborers’ hands in it, mistaking their hands for the gentle globules.

    I am pretty sure that Melville intended the double entendre; perhaps Barclay did too?
