Must.... update....

You know what? I really have nothing to say. My life is uber boring right now. Unless you want to hear about how crappy the traffic was this morning. Or how I really need a haircut. Or how funny my fat cat looks when he tries to jump up onto the couch - slippery wood floors are hell on a fat cat's equilibrium.

I suppose I could talk about a movie or something. I saw Wedding Crashers the other night. It was surprisingly hilarious. Both of the main actors annoy the heck outta me, but I really really enjoyed the humor. I wish I could remember the parts that I laughed the hardest at, but I don't. I know I laughed hard enough to squeeze out a few tears at one point though. I'll have to check it out again soon to refresh my memory. Go see it.

Of course, I've also spent a lot of quality personal growth time watching Season 5 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer over the last week. I think Season 5 might be my favorite of all of them. Spike's character gets developed, Buffy-bot gets made, Riley gets dumped (w00t!), Glory ROCKS, Dawn enters the picture, Buffy dies (oops - spoiler alert), Giles takes over the magic store, Xander and Anya are so cute together, Willow becomes powerful, Tara gets more good screen time, and other stuff happens too. The quality of character development in BtVS will never seize to amaze me. To quote a popular sentiment of the episode reviewers on Sunnydale Slayers - "Ave Joss".

My motivation to do important things - wash clothes, feed cats, change litterboxes, get off my increasingly large ass - has dropped severely since being sick. So I just sit and watch Buffy. Again. My life goes in cycles - life without Buffy, life when all I can think about is watching more Buffy, life without Buffy - ad infinitum. I bet that Buffy craving signals some sort of psychological change. I used to do the same thing with silly romance novels. Oh well, at least it's not ice cream or booze.

MMMMmmmm... bloody, dark, sensitive Spike. You know, if I just look at pictures of Spike, he's not that great. But man, do those two (Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Marsters) have some great on-screen chemistry... Season 6 next *shiver*

Hey, did someone say "Buffy"?....

My 60 year old father was addicted to Buffy in his mid 50's. He watched the show religiously. I would call him the day after and he would fill me in on the story line. I was vicariously watching Buffy through my father. He's not even an overweight loser.

And do you really listen to hardcore Christian heavy metal? haha...

My old roommate loved the band Stryper. 80's Hair metal dudes who lov ed Jesus.

Strange I know.

I remember Stryper, too. On the more modern side of it all, there's P.O.D. The claim to be religion-based metal. For what that's worth.

I 'heart' Buffy. I spent a few months living with my parents after grad school and I remember my dad walking into the den one day and saying, "is this ever *not* on?" The answer to that question while I was in the house was - more often than not - no.

I don't know which seasons the episodes are in, but two of my faves are the singing one (I think it's called, "Once More, With Feeling") and the silent one, "Hush" (actually hilarious). It's kind of a guilty pleasure, but I adore the re-runs.

Yeah - Once More With Feeling is EXCELLENT. I can watch that over and over again and still be entertained. I made my boyfriend watch it, and even though he hates musicals he still liked it quite a bit - it made him want to take out his guitar and start playing :) Hush is great too - but I love all the episodes with Glory from Season 5 - she's a great baddie!

I'm very into the whole Whedonverse, and Buffy is a favorite. And Spike...well, who wouldn't be hot for Spike?

If you haven't checked out Firefly yet, give it a view. Great series, and the last of Whedon's ilk.
