sunshine_queen: Tricia being fierce, as always. (Six- supplicate- cigarsgalore)
I think I'm so much dorkier now that I forget that things I used to like were actually dorky too, just not as dorky.

Example: The other day in my French Lit class, we read a story about a guy who put a wedding ring on the finger of a statue; said statue decided that meant they were married, curled her fist around the ring and wouldn't give it back, and then killed the guy when he married his actual living bride. Before class, Melissa and two other girls and I were discussing how inanimate objects coming alive is THE SCARIEST THING EVER OMG. One of the girls, Sarah, brought up the RL Stein Goosebumps book, and how the ones about the ventriloquist dummy scared the crap out of her.

To add to the conversation, I think of the episode of Buffy (the only one that I absolutely couldn't watch,) the one with the ventriloquist dummy. When he showed up in her window, independent of humans, I was done. This discussion went like this.

Me: I know, right! When I was watching an episode of Buffy-
Everyone else: [Laugh loudly]
Me: ... Oh, that's dorky, isn't it.
Melissa: A little bit.

I guess I figure now that I have embraced BSG so fully, and that now I am like, a legit nerd, I forget that Buffy wasn't exactly mainstream.

In addition to this epiphany, I have come to the conclusion that from now on I should not join any challenges or anything without, like, a permission slip being signed by something more mentally capable than me. WHY DID I THINK I COULD HANDLE A REMIX ASSIGNMENT. I CAN'T EVEN WRITE MY OWN IDEAS, WHY WOULD I OFFER TO MESS WITH SOMEONE'S ACTUALLY REALIZED AND FULLY FORMED IDEAS? I am made of so much fail.

So, here's the thing about my watching of BSG: didn't plan it. Nope. Saw a Lena Olin doppelganger on Greys, commented to it to Yubs, and all of the sudden I am a Lauroslin fangirl and this extra super fan of Papadama/Lauroslin and that's pretty much my life now.

However, my netflix queue is all HEY WE GOTS SOME PROGRAMS FOR YOU TO WATCH, and they sent me disc one of 'In Treatment.' Which I totally wanted to watch, it's got Lauren Reed and Professor Baer from Little Women and I was like, um, what's not to like?

But dude. I don't know if it's just my mind protecting itself from intaking another entire cast of characters and backstories (because, man, the amount of TV shows I watch is frightening) but damn was it boring. It even started with Lauren's episode and I was still like "nothing... is... happening... WHY" even though the whole point is how it's a therapy session and it's all talk and hence the genius. But I felt tired at the idea of listening to Lauren's problems. Which is so not like me, I'm all PROBLEMS BRING THEM ON PLZ. (No, seriously, think about this. Sydney, troubles. Lauroslin, troubles of an unimaginable variety. HIMYM, Ted's douchebaggery. Buffy, Buffy's issues. Gilmore Girls, everyone having troubles. I LOVE DRAMA. And this I'm like, Lauren, why did you wait outside his office for five hours and not go home and wash your face?)

(Also, BSG makes me cry. Damn you Yubs!)

Things that are awesome:

- Being home for spring break.
- An epic post about Barbra.
- A lifetime movie called I Want to Marry Ryan Banks starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Caulfield, aka, Will Tippin and Anya the demon from Buffy, and it was so awesome and hilarious and I am delighted.
- my dad buying the new Word
- Getting things altered so that they fit my bizarrely proportioned body.
- Crocheting.
- Home cooking.

Yay home!

So on Saturday, Ollie and I went out to run some errands. In the car, we listened to the 'Once More With Feeling' soundtrack. You know. Because we love us some Buffy.

SINCE THEN, I have had various songs from the damn thing in my head, but it's usually "Walk Through The Fire." I actually have most of it memorized now because of how many damn times I've had to watch the scene. I love it to pieces, but honestly. Enough is enough. My favorite lines are (because I know you care)

(Anya) She came from the grave much graver.
(Sweet, simultaneous) So one by one, they come to me
(Spike) First he'll kill her, then I'll save her!
(Sweet, simultaneous) The distant redness as their guide
(Tara) Everything is turning out so dark.
(Buffy, simultaneous) Going through the motions...
(Sweet, simultaneous) ...Ain't what they had in mind
(Spike) No I'll save her, then I'll kill her!
(Willow) I think this line's mostly filler.
(Giles) What's it going to take to strike a spark?
(Buffy) These endless days are finally ending in a blaze!

Flippin' awesome.

So, let me just preface this by saying that the start date of this fic was 03-07-01, which means I was thirteen. And I obviously sucked. But in a delightful, omg badfic way.

Jess sent me all 67 pages of it, but I asked her to pick some highlights. So here you go.

Sooo I watched three episodes of Buffy today and hello, Spike and Buffy have teh secks. And I had no idea that every happened. So that was delightful. And in reaction to that, I wrote a teeny drabble about them. Just Right

(I totally love Spike. It's kind of sick and demented but omg cute.)

So I finished my birthday fic for
[livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 Medea, found out I report for duty at 9:30 in the AM tomorrow, and watched Tabula Rasa, to which I have only to say:

Randy: I must be a noble vampire. A good guy, on a mission of redemption. I help the helpless. I'm a vampire with a soul.
Joan: A vampire with a soul? Oh my god, how lame is that?

So, [livejournal.com profile] the_retelling is active and I had the time of my life watching 'Truth Be Told' last night. No, seriously. I got to write a reaction piece and then a little a Vaughn drabble and... and I love Alias so much. Really.

In other proof that my life is just fabulously interesting and fraught with excitement, I watched like, four episodes of Buffy today. INCLUDING ONCE MORE WITH FEELING. And ohhhhhh my god. It was completely delightful. I smiled the entire episode. Especially at the END. When they KISSED OMG.

It's been a shippy day.

It's nice to be home, in that I have my own shower and I get Telemundo so I can watch Caso Cerrado (! Nothing is better than what boils down to Judge Judy in Spanish. Only Ana Maria Polo is a hundred times cooler than any American judge could ever be.) and I have my dog and my own nice room. The bad part about being home is that I'm... well. Home. And that's it, there's no going back up to Gainesville until school starts again.

Octavius got neutered yesterday and so now he has a phonograph hat on becaue he is stupid and all but licked out his stitches. He is very, very cute.

Also, I didn't think it was possible, but I miss eating out all the time. Having to fix stuff for myself here is bizarre.

I watched the first three episodes of season six of Buffy and I am not too thrilled. I am pleased with how they're handling Buffy coming back from the dead, and that she told Spike that she was in heaven, because omg love Spike, aaaand I got to hear my favorite speech of all time from that show.

The Alias ficathon is due soon and I don't even have the slightest clue of what to do. Dooooom.
