I haven't seen her around for a couple weeks, or maybe it just feels that way.

I hope she checks in soon.

What do you think said Classic Literature was made for, swatting flies? Jane Eyre and Twilight: both books written for the reader's enjoyment, although the second was written with only the writer in mind as a reader at first. Interpretation/critique/etc. is all part of the fun and I think anyone who suggests that it's somehow wrong for people to want to play on the equipment a book, TV show or movie sets up for them is being a total buzzkill.

And you are aware that I wasn't telling people not to like Twilight, right? I was telling them not to declare it far superior to works that didn't skip the copy-writing, because that makes it structurally flawed in a way that makes acting like it's Untouchably Brilliant kind of sad. Also, nobody gets to act like the thing they like is perfect, IMO, because that's pretty much impossible. They will be wrong.

ETA that Mark being a man should have nothing to do with whether you accept his opinion, and that you should check out other Mark Reads/Watches to see what he actually does. He's not a traditional reviewer, he's telling the internet about his experience reading/watching whatever as he goes along, which is sort of what I'm doing with Buffy, lol. When he doesn't like things, they make it so he can't enjoy the book. Not everyone's going to like the same things you do, and someone doesn't need to be taking something too seriously to just not enjoy it. God knows the reverse is true because there are Twilight fans who take the series disturbingly seriously. In fact, those are the fans I was addressing in the post that offended you.
Take it easy. I meant it as a joke. I have never actually read what you say about Buffy, so I don't know how you break it down.

And I find reviewers, and their dissection of every reference, word, and character, to be quite boring.

I wasn't offended by anything. It just got blown out of proportion. I just found it funny that someone who would be into Buffy would put down Twilight so much.

......or The Vampire Diaries, or whatever you happen to be into. I don't see a difference.

Honestly I don't care what people like or don't like. Doesn't affect me any.

The Scrills and me racism story (for those who asked):

Scrills and I ran over to Old Navy before having coffee Saturday. There was some kind of hellishly crowded coat sale going on. Her boyfriend, the mime, was buying some coats for her but she had to pick them out first (I never really got that part, and frankly, I was too busy assessing the mime to bother).

While she was working out the details with the boyfriend, she ran into a mixed race couple she knew, and introduced me --- or I introduced myself. (I get confused in crowded places.) Afterward, she was literally beaming with glee, since the white wife of her black ex boyfriend (Scrills' ex; the white woman's husband) had once accused her of racism and made a fuss about Scrills and the hubby remaining friends.

Scrills felt vindicated by having a white friend along to introduce. I think the wife was motivated more by insecurity than real issues with race, but who knows? Regardless, we laughed about it for the remainder of our afternoon.

(Scrills, if you read this and want to chime in, feel free!)

I am attracted to a manager's voice at work. He has an antonio banderas puss-n-boots accent (best way I can describe it) and every word that comes out of his mouth has so much emotion and passion behind it, no matter how trivial the conversation is. I'm at work way too much to be noticing things and my imagination is off the wall for I wondered if he would whisper to my belly so that maybe his accent or suaveness will rub off on my unborn baby. smh ima mess, back to work before mr.rico suave sees me on my phone and gives me a sultry lecture on not texting on the clock.

I love my boyfriend's Egyptian/Somalian/American accent. it makes me smile when he accidently slips into the accent and doesn't even realize it.

Bah. I was supposed to go on my quest for quince at the market and then check out the store that replaced Esprit to see what the style is and their prices. Instead new guy decided to simply not come back to work and now I have to go to work today.
Hot dog jambalaya for family meal today! It amuses me how much people like it even though their initial reaction is basically "Really? That's cheap!" Hey, there are always leftover family meal hot dogs; I had to come up with a different way of serving them.

The noises my friend makes when she eats annoys me.

Also, hi everyone.

Today is baking day in prep for Thanksgiving. I hauled out the yeast, the mixer, and set out to make some simple yeast rolls (well, the dough, at least). Ten minutes into the second rise, disaster struck in the form of my uncle, who heard from my daughter that I was baking rolls.
"No Van de Kamp rolls?!!" He sounded hurt.
"These are homemade, which is... better, right?" I tried to sound optimistic.
"I'll bring some Van de Kamps just in case."
In the span of twenty minutes, offers to bring rolls started rolling in from members of the family. (My great-aunt heard I was recession cooking, and offered me some money to buy rolls) I put my beautiful dough in the freezer, and headed to Ralphs to get the dang rolls.
Really, my family? Next year, I'm going out to dinner. Alone.

I am home from work today because the ceiling collapsed in my office. They've been doing construction on the floor above ours since the spring and they have been numerous leaks and other debris on our floor. Even before the construction started, there were leaks in my section at work that they've simply patched up. I don't particularly care about not going in since I wouldn't have had a lot to do there anyway and I now have a 5 day weekend instead of a 4 day one. I just care about my health since who knows how much asbestos has been unleashed since all the construction began. I'm so filing suit if I get an asbestos related disease in the future.

Seriously? Store bought rolls over homemade?

We used to buy all our holiday rolls from this local restaurant. I don't know what they did to them, but they were so good. They started off being just a complimentary roll with dinner, but everyone loved them so much they started selling them by the dozen. They went out of business years ago. I yet to find another roll I love as much.
