wanna go HOME now...


28 February 2001

8:20 PM: Slept much of the day. Trying to do anything to get to a point where I can get some work done. This is bad, I'm not making any progress and it's almost Thursday again.

Buffy was so fucking tremendous last night. Unbelievably good. If only they could give the characters life like that more often, without having to have such an extreme emotional context. Like, maybe, let's make March "Be Nice to Emma Caulfield" month, and give Anya some more of those good actual lines?

Of course last night as I watched it, and afterwards, I wasn't really focusing on such thoughts. Or on anything. Just stunned - and hating the commercials. Nice to see Willow and Tara being allowed to act like two people who love each other and draw strength and support from each other. Not just the kiss - though that was a brilliant move - but the whole scene.

This happened last week too - I watch these shocking, draining episodes, go down to the bar, and nobody is there. Well, nobody I know that well anyway, and certainly no fellow Watchers. Makes it hard to deal with the people I do talk to. "Hey, how's it going?" "OK. I'm a little weirded out right now." "What's up?" "Well, there's this TV show..."

Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.

All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
