The Snarkening Was Only a JOKE

I know I don't have a ton of the SF's on my flist, so this will just be public, I would just like to say I continue to appreciate your input, and support!

It was not my intent to usurp the Admin/Mods and I only wanted people to keep talking to each other, and while I am not stating my "undying love" for the host I found, I'm also not convinced we need to move, and if there is a compelling reason to do so, well then SHARE IT. If you feel like you are the leader, LEAD. From the very first day I said, PLEASE make something *better*.

And let's take a breath, we are not talking world peace or a G8 economic conference level decision, it's a freaking internet discussion board about celebrities, where people happened to make lasting friendships and connections, that I'd like to see continue w/o internet drama bitch fits interfering. But I should have know that the internet and drama are never truly parted.

I'm truly sorry some people didn't feel "consulted" but I'm not apologizing for getting a board up. Not happening.

Christ on a bike.

Song Remains the Same

So I'm old enough by now that I shouldn't still be surprised when my tastes in romantic narratives are so consistent and predictable over time. But the recent return of Roger Howarth to my favorite soap One Life to Live has reminded that what I'm a sucker for, I'm a sucker for again and again and again.

I've sailed some ships in my life, Spike and Buffy, Mulder and Scully, both about equally, but both PALE in comparison to my now 17 year investment in Todd Manning and Blair Daimler. Oh how I have tried over the years to quit them, to walk away, but then Collapse )

IDK the whole thing gives me a gigantic kick.

Howdy, I said Hello.

In an attempt to be more focused when I'm struck by shall we say more essay-rific subjects, and of late being inspired by the writing of queenofdenile, I decided to grab a blog spot in which to offload all these unwritten essays in the Andrew's Big Board that is my mind.

The first I've posted is one that has been a brewing every since I saw True Grit and my obsession with the fabulousness that is the character of Mattie Ross, and finally it's out there!

If you want to have look it's Mattie Ross, Masculinity, and The Coen Bros.

30 Days of the Buffster Meme

Day 1: Favorite Season – I’m going to go with S7, if you love Buffy, the character really LOVE her, if you’re invested in the actual story of her growing up instead of some lead balloon “metaphor” about it, than yeah.

Day 2: Favorite Episode – Touched, My Buffy, I get verklempt just thinking of her here, she’s not some little girl who envies women in pretty dresses getting drained by hottie vampires, and is worried she wasn’t a good enough lay for her evil boyfriend. She’s a woman who knows who she is, who she loves, and how to win.

Day 3: Favorite Song Used In An Episode – Wild Horses – The Sundays Favorite Use of a Song In An Episode: Close My Eyes Refrain - Showtime

Day 4: Favorite Female Character – Buffy & Cordelia

Day 5: Least Favorite Female Character - Tara
Day 6: Favorite Male Character – Spike & Xander

Day 7: Least Favorite Male Character – Riley

Day 8: Favorite Friendship – Cordelia & The Scoobies, underscored how people from different “worlds” can still genuinely like/need each other.

Day 9: Favorite Romance – Spike/Buffy & Xander/Cordelia

Day 10: Least Favorite Season – S4. Yawn.

Day 11: Least Favorite Romance – Buffy & Riley

Day 12: Least Favorite Episode - As You Were

Day 13: Favorite Potential Slayer – Vi the Vampire Slayer, and I believe Felecia Day has proven me right in my affection!

Day 14: Favorite Female Villain – Faith, unlike a lot of Buffy lovers, I also love Faith. I loved seeing a Slayer who questioned, who doubted, who feared, and who failed to be compelled or controlled by “duty”. I think corruption and weakness is as interesting as strength and heroism.

Day 15: Favorite Male Villain - Caleb

Day 16: Episode You Like That Everyone Else Hates – There are SO many, but I’ll go with Some Assembly Required, not only do I like it, but I think the Frankenstein angle elevates it to one of the more poignant and well done episodes of S2. I mean how anyone can sit through Killed by Death or the God awful WML I, over this I will never understand.

Day 17: Character You Relate To The Most - Buffy

Day 18: Character Who Didn’t Get Enough Screen Time – Amy, Elizabeth Anne Allen was wasted, I really wish they had brought her back in S4 for Willow instead of using Tara Gay Now Now Brain Sucked Now Brain Wiped Now Dead UGH. Of course I also wish, they never made her gay and simply had Amy corrupting Willow by degrees.

Day 19: Character You Like That Everyone Else Hates - Dawn

Day 20: Best Spike-centric Episode – Lies My Parents Told Me, sure FFL introduces us to the William we’d only seen hints of in the form of reeking of humanity, but I like this one better because Incest is best obvs, but seriously I think S7 is about reconciliation of identity for the leads especially, and this is where Spike fully owns who he is and what he needs to do with his unlife.

Day 21: Best Willow-centric Episode - Halloween, it’s my favorite Willow, mostly because she spends the episode not really acting like Willow. Same with Gingerbread.

Day 22: Best Xander-centric Episode – Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered

Day 23: Two Characters You Wanted To Get Together That Never Did – Despite my Willow antipathy, Willow/Percy, Willow/Riley

Day 24: Favorite Example of 90s Special Effects – Reptile Boy Monster.

Day 25: Favorite Buffyverse Saying - Wiggins

Day 26: Favorite Scooby Moment – The picnic scene in FH&T, I’m shallow and they are all at their very very prettiest, and they’re all friends, and in the sun, and PRETTY.

Day 27: Cutest Moment – End of Bad Egg’s LG: This is all YOUR fault! B: HOW?!

Day 28: Character You Love To Hate – Willow Willow Willow

Day 29: Episode You Hate That Everyone Else Loves – Okay I’m going to go with Lie to Me, even though I think I hate the Zeppo more and think the Zeppo SUCKS, because more people universally revere Lie To Me, and even though I personally HATE it, it isn’t actually, like *bad*, in the same way The Zeppo is. Yet I can rewatch Lie to Me,and can’t rewatch the Zeppo.

Day 30: What You Think Made Buffy So Great – Tiny blonde girl kicks cheesy monster ass. Whenever I fondly recall falling for this show, I always come back to this. I have never loved a character quite the way I loved Buffy, I’m not sure I ever will.

Secret Smile

So apparently I am having one of my every other yearly DD/GA tinhat spasms, and talking about it on SF is not sufficient. Trying to poke holes in my tin hat time line will only force me to come up with convoluted reasons that 2+2=5, dammit!

Alright, I think I effectively managed to waste all my time today. Bravo, self.

So this day won't stop sucking, but I can't make this vague brain cloud-y headache go away. I can't stop feeling fat. I can't make myself work. Facebook is making me sick to look at it's new layout. So I give up and quit this work day now. Now I go SHOPPING:

I had seen this AE Cargo Leggings a while back but no way was paying full price. Well now they are on sale!

I have much love for this Military Wrap Skirt, this Epaulette Sweater, and this Ribbon Shoulder Top. Loft also has some nice drape neck t's and cowl neck sweaters for a basic winter pieces I am desperately in need of.

Oh and NOW they decide to carry some great Boot-cut cords when I spent most of January scouring the stores for some. I'm always a freakin' season ahead.

Also I am LOVE with this Cashmere Biker Sweater, but will probably settle for the military sweater jacket instead. The Gap also has a version The Sherpa Moto Sweater.

Ah, now I feel better.

You look like a ho.....

Heh. God love my Taco Girl's lack of tact brutal honesty.

So yeah my pretty rose pattern dress, definitely fell on the side of hoochie even on line, but it was also sort of innocent and flirty at the same time which is my favorite combination, but yeah this was a dress made to MODEL. If you have any delusions of walking, or sitting down or bending over? Not so much. It also gapped in the back because I'm too short torso-ed. And also probably, definitely, too old for it. Boo, I SO need another casual fun dress, especially in this perputual outdoor sauna weather!

The situation with the boy has evolved to an actual date. Situations are FUN, but so are dates!

Dinner For Schmucks is the Gay bromance Dogfight.

Ooh and getting back to Taco Girl, a decision has been made, and she will move in with my Aunt sometime in August, and start school here in the fall. Yay! I'm sorry her "mother" is a horrible bitca from HELL, but she will realize that she's loved dearly and surrounded by people who want and will DO the best for her. I took her shopping at the mall twice this weekend and I could TELL she's just *never* had that, she's so used to hearing no and everything that is WRONG with her that hearing yes and spending time just hanging out and window shopping is foreign, and notable for her she wasn't actually pestering me to *buy* things, she was just enjoying the bonding time. Have I mentioned how much I hate the bitch who's been raising her for 10 years? BITCH.

And I love jenelope like she was from HEAH, but seriously I think I'm the only women alive who HATES the Old Spice Guy/Commercial. The guy himself visually? Foine assed man, but the schtick? OY. Also my DAD wore Old Spice. I do not want my man to smell like my dad. Ew.
