:sigh: My mother. She really means well, but something just gets into her sometimes and then she does ****e like this.

My brother and his wife are working out their situation. I told my mom that as pissed as we all are about it, we need to mind our business. My brother is a grown man and my mom can't fix all his problems anymore.

Fast forward to today, I find out my mom contacted his wife and told her to send back the Xmas gifts she sent for my brother, because she will give them to him herself when he gets back to the states.

Dunno how his wife responded but it wasn't pleasant. My mom got pissed and called her a name.

My brother called my mom later and went off, defending his wife. He called back a few hours after that to apologize for disrespecting her, but still stood by his wife.

Then my mom calls me to tell me everything. I told her "I told you so" not to make her feel bad, but to let her know she really f#@ked up and instigated unnecessary drama.

Just now, I noticed that his wife unfriended me on Fb. Whatever.

Had a good night learning to play pool with a high school friend. Haven't seen that girl in years!

Even scored me a phone number for my " pool teacher." Dude was kinda cute and he has a lot of patience, one must in order to teach me play pool.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

Holy garlic overload!

I wonder if I rub my tongue on the back of a stainless spoon if it will get rid of the flavor like you can get rid of the smell on your hands by doing the same.... hrmmm

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

I was feeling sad and stressed so I went to take a nice candlelit bath. Next thing I know SPLASH! My sons dumping bath toys in the tub, telling me "mommy you're too big to swim in the bath tub with me!"

I really got tub jacked y'all!

My 4yo nephew loves My Little Pony. He will asks who has the most recent episodes before he decides whose house he wants to go over.

My sister is concerned, but eh. All the boys cartoons are about fighting. This kid needs a little balance.

I haven't used this Lafes spray deodorant enough times to tell for sure, but I think it works very well. The spray formula bugs me, though. I know today won't be the last time I decide to reapply just in case and try to just do it by sticking it in my shirt and aiming...thus getting product partially on my back on one side, making the skin there feel all tight. The side of my left breast may have gotten a lot of it, too. Am I just too much of a spaz for spray deodorants?
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
Yay I have a cold on top of the back pain. Sneezing is hilarious fun.

Also I'm back at my mum and dads because I can't manage by myself yet. I had a week by myself to find out I suck and I'm signed off work for another 4 weeks.

I felt bad putting Eddy back in his travel box, he really didn't want to come here. But he seems ok now.

And I've had to postpone my oral surgery assessment appointment for the 2nd time. At this rate I'm going to need a synthetic disk putting in my head.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
The "previously on Buffy" bit this time pretty much just established where characters are and what they're doing for employment/enrichment these days - no drama or madness shown - and yet this episode is titled "Help," so there's a good chance we're about to see a fair bit of both. The first thing we see is a red-headed freshly dead lady in a swanky coffin in a funeral home, with three other coffins about to be opened by...Buffy, Xander and Dawn. Heh, Dawn gets crammed in the kid coffin despite being taller than Buffy. Seniority, kid! Them's the breaks! Um...after staking the vampire who took offense to being called "peaceful" for some reason, Buffy says she thinks "closed caskets are more tasteful anyway" and closes the coffin...but the fact remains that the vampire's coffin was left open and she's clearly meant to have an open casket funeral. What the frickety-frack are the funeral home owners supposed to do when the family turns up for the body? How often do they have to explain apparent sudden cremations and scattering of ashes in what was meant to be an open casket despite the express wishes of the bereaved? How can they possibly do business in this town? So. Many. Questions.

Montage of counseling awkwardness. I do love that the bullied chick turns out to actually be there for slamming her bully's head into the pavement and asked Buffy, who'd given her the usual "stand up for yourself" advice, if she should slam him around some more. Oh, Willow seeing Tara's grave for the first time. So sad and sweet, it almost makes you forget how stupid her death was, except for the part where it totally doesn't. Ew, go play in traffic, kid who thinks "I'm worried I'm gay, female counselor go out with me to prove me wrong?" is not an unbelievably gross thing to even think about saying. Ahhhhh, and here's the rub! This sweet kid named Cassie who has some light purple hair streaks that may or may not be clip-ins says she isn't going to graduate because she's going to die on Friday. If this impending doom stems from a supernatural cause, she may be talking to THE expert on the problem. Good on Buffy for jumping to suicide and then human threats first, but why is she confused by Cassie doing everything but whacking her over the head while screaming "I AM CLAIRVOYANT"? Not even if she'd never met Drusilla would this level of obliviousness make sense. Bluh. Buffy. "The 'hood?" Why did you even feel the need to guess at where Principal Wood comes from when he mentioned it? (Also, why come to him when this issue is totally Hellmouth-based?) Now we know he comes from Beverly Hills, though, and was in no way able to bust anyone's ass despite getting in trouble for saying he would. If his type weren't already completely the Inspirational Educator who come to a Troubled School, his wealthy background would've done it. Too bad this school's all literally hellish.

So it takes a coffee stain on the nondescript white tank top Cassie complimented and warned her against staining (this Cassie chick has some boring taste in clothes) to get Buffy's wheels turning. Hm, is Dawn employing an impossibly rare actual poker face on this show, or did she really not notice that Cassie knew her last name was Summers when she never said it? Eh, at least that's plausible, unlike Buffy's plot-induced brain block earlier. Huh, precog - odd term shortening, Willow. LOLOL XANDER DOESN'T KNOW WHAT GOOGLE IS. A google/ogle joke was made. OMG the datedness is adorable. Did that even work in, what, 2002/3? Ha! Xander (when Willow admits posting love poems as a teen): "Love poems?" Willow: "I'm over you now, sweetie." Shut up, Dawn. I really don't see this show deciding to break up a friendship with such Scooby-esque comfort in its presentation by having one party kill the other over being refused entirely non-frantic requests to go to some dance. Also, smugness is rarely cute. Awww, Cassie's breakdown about wanting to live - this has to be giving Buffy some flashbacks. I want there to be a way for Buffy to explain how much she relates. Also, Cassie needs hugs. There! Red robed monks! Setting fire to pictures surrounded by the coins Cassie saw in a ceremonial candle circle! Ohhhhhh, you mean ol' chanting jerkfaces, what did Cassie ever do to you??? You need to die SO HARD.

So, has Dawn forgotten all about the friends she made in the basement? Is she going to just find a new boy and girl to buddy up with every so often or what? It's not like those other kids could act (at least the boy couldn't), but Buffy even told them to stick together and now it's like they don't exist. Huh, kudos to James Marsters for punching himself in the face for hurting Buffy in a way that doesn't make me want to laugh. That's a tall order. No, Buffy, don't you dare follow up on Dawn's "lead." I know what you're doing, hassling Mike, and don't. Just don't. Please just stop! Buffyyyyy, why won't you listen to meeeee?? Damn you, woman, now you've turned me into Dawn! For this, I wish you just as much awkward on your offscreen days! I'm mildly amused by your change of tack from appeased to angry with "You're asking my sister to the dance - and she's your second choice?!", though. Seems he's getting beat out by...Home Improvement Kid? I think that's him, I didn't really watch that show. Random. I like that Cassie has figured out that Buffy had Dawn attach herself to her but also is totally cool with it, despite considering it pointless, and genuinely considers Dawn her friend. I really like Cassie in general, and I like Dawn when she's interacting with her. Ew. You're right, Dawn, Home Improvement Kid is an ass. "Just doing a poll"? Go run into a pole. OMG, he's a red robed monk ass! Was Home Improvement Kid actually well-known enough at the time to follow the star cameo = guilty party rule that applies to all those CSI shows my dad likes? Whatever. KILL HIM DEAD. Ugh, why must he be human and thus highly likely to live?

HE PLANS TO KILL CASSIE WITH A FREAKING BUTCHER KNIFE AND THE REST OF Y'ALL ARE JUST GONNA SIT THERE?!?! YOUR FRIEND IS ABOUT TO COMMIT MURDER. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU. Can that knife please slip and slit his own throat? Pretty pretty please with vamp dust on top? We at least need to see him carted off to prison for plotting and attempting the murder of his classmate, and all of these punks need to do time as co-conspirators and accomplices. OMG, don't assault her with irony, too! This is so reminiscent of the Master telling Buffy that her coming is what would free him: the red robed psycho kid saying that the reason he chose to make her his human sacrifice was the morbid image she began to project after foreseeing herself dying today. Okay, Buffy, I know you love your dramatic entrances, but you don't let the dude hold a butcher knife up to her neck while the others ceremoniously extinguish their candles and wait for him to maybe start speaking again instead of just cutting her open. You could easily have pulled your robe off too late. Wait, they raised the demon without actually sacrificing Cassie? Her death would have been in vain, too! How awful! Buffy, don't let the demon kill Cassie, I like her. OMG OMG DON'T LET HOME IMPROVEMENT KID KILL HER, EITHER. What is your problem, dude?! You already raised your freaking demon!

Thanks for delivering those nice face punches and scaring the psycho kid, Spike. He deserves far worse, but that was quite the effort considering that you now have both the chip and your soul. "Someday she'll tell you?" Is Cassie referring to Buffy telling Spike that she forgives him or cares for him or something, or is there some special knowledge Spike wants that another female character holds? Yay, the demon chomped on Home Improvement Kid! Boo, it was just a little nip. Yay, maybe it'll do something awful to him? Buffy's walking right past him as he begs for help (serves him right), so either she's leaving him to potentially get demon-y powers and be a threat again, or I want to see him get his comeuppance. It would be awesome if he turned into those riches he just shouted about or melted or something! Whoa, holy crap. The booby trap another kid giggled that his uncle/cousin/I forget used to always do? Was a crossbow rigged to shoot anybody who opens the door in the head. He would always do this? Good God! We have more psycho killers to deal with, and way, way more victims. This loose end is way more disturbing than this episode's ritual sacrifice premise. How many have died this way??

No! Not fair! For Cassie to just die spontaneously after all that, it's too much irony! Oh, and of course she had time to be told that a person "can make a difference," and to stroke Buffy's hair and say, "And you will," before collapsing. I don't want to complain about that, because she got to go out with dignity, but I also want to complain about everything relating to Cassie dying and negating everything this show has said thus far about free will and prophecy. She was such a sweet, relatable character, too! Oh, so her "family had a history of heart irregularities" that she never knew about. So this doesn't actually touch on the free will vs. destiny thing in any message-changing way. It just jerks us around and reminds us that sometimes the good die young and there's nothing we can do about it. At least Cassie died knowing how far people she'd only recently met were willing to go to save her.

I so did not expect at the beginning of this episode for its ultimate discussion of the title subject to involve the words "sometimes you can't help." This was one helluva blow to deal Buffy as a counselor and Slayer as well as Dawn as Cassie's new friend just to teach Buffy a lesson that was bound to come to her anyway in a less morbid fashion just from doing her job. This is one harsh world you've written, Joss.
OMG, LOOK!!
