Little Mother of all the Roaches, President-for-Life of the MAC Harlots!
Happy 4th of July!!! Remember to thank our troops!! I'm just playing. Lol. People are wearing that out.

RCC, I love a vocal cat. I've read that they can understand full sentences so I would really love to know what they are saying, when they jump in or start a conversation.

It turns out out main fireworks show was not canceled tonight, but I'm not going. I went to see Spiderman with friends and came home. I don't feel like dealing with the crowds tonight. I have an overwhelming urge to put on pj's, give myself a facial, and watch Singles.





Worn out iPhone. Need I say more?
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I'm tired of you. I was broken down into accepting that this is over.

Then you ask me to lay down with you... Cue my bawling tears. This hurts so much.

I have my certification exam in exactly ONE WEEK. please leave me alone to do what I have to do to be prepared. I've accepted that we are done. That the BS we lived was all there was going to be, and ive accepted that I'm going to focus on ONLY ME. On just getting better. Because I didn't only hurt you. You hurt me. We have said the cruelest of things to each other and I want to be done with it. I want to have the woman I was best friends with. The one I could turn to and who wasn't so quick to judge me.

I just want us to be happy again. Even if apart.

But it honestly hurts more than any pain I've ever felt.

I can't believe Netflix is showing the censored version of Smashed instead of the original. So, episode ends right after Buffy and Spike fall through the floor, cutting out the bit where Buffy's clearly riding him. I would have thought Netflix would show the original.
My poor old dog. She's not doing we at all and all the fireworks just made her even worse. I feel awful for her.

Saria, are you watching along with Mark? Has he gotten that far?? *still hasn't caught up*
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
Did it seriously just take me re-reading/skimming like 6 of Mark's recaps for me to remember that I'd left off at the beginning of Season 3? Also, when did I start doing this? I'm not sure how much time I just spent on this.

I'm also not sure if my brother is actually in his room right by mine or across the house in his lair (the guest room he completely co-opted and got to make into his second room because screw fairness). Either he's in his lair and everything's cool, or he's in his room trying to sleep and he's been there for hours, which would be unusual for him but not unprecedented, during which my music has been playing at my usual nobody-to-bother volume, in which case, shouldn't he have said something by now? He's not generally one to be overly accommodating, at least not to his big sister. I kinda both want to check and don't want to check. I've got Schrodinger's Brother up in here.

Okay, I checked. I tiptoed across the house and saw light and heard TV noises coming from the lair. I haven't been unwittingly inconsiderate!

Please don't let irony attack me and make him go to bed right now, because I've decided it's time to watch Buffy despite being afraid of what's going to happen with Spike right now.

I HEARD A DOOR CLOSE. NOOOOO!!! I cannot deal with the acquisition of headphones right now, please just don't do it, Universe!
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
I only got 5 hours of sleep and I don't get out of work until 5:30 pm. This small not bode well for me
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

I figured I should make an attempt to watch season 6 again. It's better than I remembered, but that's the first half. When it goes all magical crack den and the nerd trio gets more important is when everything really goes to hell.
I'm dying for Mark to finish with the Whedonverse. My distaste for Whedon coupled with just generally not having the deep love for his shows that his disciples do makes this rather long run pretty tedious. Some of the fandom that joined Mark Watches for this is also rather obnoxious.
I'm so ready for him to move on to Cowboy Bebop even though I really don't care for it. At least it's short and maybe he can move on to Fullmetal Alchemist after that! I love FMA so ****ing much.
Internet. I cannot brook your slow-as-molasses loading and intermittent spasms right now. I have ranting to do. Please to not conspire against me! ...Or possibly try in vain to protect me from Whedon's inevitable crushing of my poor, easily-won heart. Either way, it's time. Let's do this.

Last time on Buffy, Angel popped in to LOLNOPE the tentative beginnings of a potential healthy Spuffy relationship, which as a sidenote is also the only healthy relationship we've even seen Buffy almost get into and is still fraught with complications like the entirety of the characters' history together. Can we take a moment to reflect on how sad that is? Poor Buffy suffers so for being the heroine of a Whedonverse show. Also, Dawn was a BAMF and Caleb finally kicked the bucket. Wait, what? Aw, mannn!! No fair, I liked the anticlimax of his apparent death last episode! That misogynist prick doesn't deserve a sendoff equal to his power or whatever, he deserved to fall to the floor in an ignominious heap while in the middle of a cocky laugh. I am disappoint. You'd better at least leave Angel unconscious while Buffy re-takes care of business, because after that bit about "the damsel-ing" (oh MAN is your dialogue clunky sometimes), there's no way anyone would miss the implications of a man having to kill the woman-hating Caleb for her. ('Nother side note: WTF is oozing out of Caleb's face?) BWAHAHAHAHA! Dude got chopped in half! And Buffy explained this to newly-conscious Angel with "He had to split," which caused her to snort with laughter! Okay, this is sufficiently undignified - in fact, it's better than the last time. Choice re-approved.

Oddly enough, I am not annoyed by Angel "going all Dawson on" Buffy right now, probably because David Boreanaz's tongue seems to be placed firmly in his cheek, as it has since his return, which appears to have the effect of preventing me from taking anything that's happening seriously, and Buffy also will not allow him to act like he has any right to be annoyed about "getting the brush-off for Captain Peroxide" (hee!). Oh, and have I mentioned how much it sucks to see the soap opera thing with the hurt party leaving right before the wound would be healed happen over and over and over again? Yeah. Not liking that part one bit. Back to Bangel, this cookie dough conversation is so exactly how they should have ended things seasons ago. It's a speech high school Buffy could easily have given, or college Buffy, and it's appropriately awkward and ends on such a sweet note, and I don't even care that Angel's not quite being accurate with his "I ain't gettin' any older," because it's just plain heartwarming! I'll just imagine an implied "on the outside."

Teehee! Dawn, this understated resentment is a good look for you. I love the mild shin kick and the calm yet bitter "Dumbass." Hahaha! Buffy's response: "If you get killed, I'm telling." And the hits keep on coming! Xander cuts into the others' happiness at the news about Caleb with "Hey, party in my eyesocket, and everyone's invited!" and then, after the awkward pause that must follow such oddly-phrased bitterness, makes the brilliantly self-aware admission, "I shouldn't say words." I LOL'd. I am also amused by Spike's realization that people do in fact use their tongues to say hello, and his childish doodle of dead Angel face. Awww! There should always be some happy to get rid of the sadness on Spike's face, like there just was when Buffy said that the powerful necklace of purity Angel gave her should be worn by a champion, leading Spike to drop his hand and his gaze, and then handed it to him after all. OMG, I thought there would be no more cuteness, don't DO that to me! The implication of having no pride would've set off red flags in seasons past, but it feels far more like banter now and far less like Spike needs way more than hugs, so yay for it leading to more cuddles! Even though we move too quickly to Buffy getting up, it still happened.

First, for real, nobody's afraid of you. Buffy's entirely right for declaring as much, as well as suggesting that you call yourself The Taunter, because you are indeed pretty much powerless. Spike is drowning in footwear! Oh, the dreams we dream. I know the cut to black here indicates we go to commercial wondering what Buffy's just realized, but since I'd say it's pretty clear they're going to win against a foe that literally just responded to being called The Taunter by just taunting Buffy again, I feel like she's just stated the obvious and am not all that curious about her reasoning. This is what happens when your Biggest Threat Ever turns out to be a total non-threat. Oh, Robin, I still heart you. "I am so much prettier than you are." This line. This line, man. It is beautiful. LOL, Faith's all offended and unbuckling her belt, all 'I shall prove that I rock all the worlds! Sexy time is NAO!' XD It is not lost on me that were the genders reversed, the unbuckling of the belt coupled with that strong phrasing would be...unwise as a writing choice. Not sure what to do with this. Would I have been automatically creeped out by a similar lighthearted exchange between Xander and Anya? Xander's the taller one in that pairing, so he wouldn't have the benefit of looking less powerful than he is the way Faith does. IDK, I feel like I'd take it much the same way as a moment between characters, but I would still likely feel uncomfortable with it as a scene someone chose to write. I'm gonna leave it alone for now in the interest of time. I like that Robin is going for a relationship with Faith. He could be good for her. I have to say, though, that the way Faith talks...has it always been this bad? Her use of words like "yo" and "mad skills" is making me cringe.

Hey! Willow, it's not fair referring to Buffy as "sweet girl, not that bright" - remember the good old days before she got walloped with the Stupid Hammer? She wasn't full of magic hacking skills or way into studying, but she could figure sh*t out. It's clearly going to bear out that she was right about you being able to do this. Oh, and I need to address this: we seem to be getting a resolution that suggests that Willow could've just magicked the Slayerettes into bona-fide Slayers all along, and yet somehow no one thought of this before. During all that time when possibilities kept getting brought up and Willow kept responding by meebling about her dark side, when we spent whole episodes just bringing up random things to try, Buffy never once rode the "Willow has magic, Willow plz use magic?" train of thought to the "magic can give us all the power" station? Turning the Slayers' potential into actualized power in such a shoehorned way is enough of a cop-out as it is, and then you go and make it worse. When you could have just had Willow say that the darkness is too powerful back when all the guessing was going on and then had Buffy come in now saying that they can't keep avoiding this option, you decided to make everything less believable and more annoying. WHILE throwing out the idea that Willow might have to die...by KENNEDY. Oh hell no, Whedon. I don't care how much you need your angst fix, there may be less dignity in that end than in Tara's. Blondie may not even entirely deserve that anymore. Well...okay, but no one else does, so I demand that you be utterly predictable and preserve your three mains. [I had typed "trio of mains," but Whedon may have ruined the word "trio" for me for awhile.]

Dude. Buffy just referenced Homestarrunner.com. There's a game of something Dungeons and Dragons-esque going on [We interrupt your regularly scheduled sentence to inform you that Blondie is Little Red Riding Hood. As you were.] and the party's just run into Trogdor the Burninator. I was not expecting a casual reference to a thing I know from my childhood, especially not an internet thing, since this show started out treating the internet like a mysterious vortex of mystery and progressed to having Tara say she didn't see much use for it...in like 2002. Have we just crossed the streams?

On this brain-bending note, I've found myself at a near perfect midpoint in the episode feeling too tired to continue. I wonder if it says anything about the stakes in this fight at this moment that I'm able to feel that way. After all, I don't actually believe there's a chance in hell Willow will die, I just couldn't not declare death by Kennedy a terrible way to go. Normally, my desire to know what's going to happen would cut through my fatigue like a scythe through Caleb, but knowing that this is the last episode makes me less willing to just barrel through. For once, I am actually going to take an intermission.

I've been spoiled on a couple of things, but I have a feeling that won't soften any blows when I get back to my rant. There will be keyboard mashing, mark my words.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
OMG! *seriously*?????

You are a brave soul for willingly re-entering Season 6. There is not enough aspirin in the WORLD.

Also, why would the Moral Guardians think they could guard their children's "innocent" minds by just cutting out that piece of an episode? Haven't the children already seen Buffybot riding Spike like a pony out in the open?

ETA after watching the clips: The censors only cut out the bit with Buffy on top. The censors are cool with sex if the dude's in control. WTF, censors. WTF.

I'm not gonna read that link, but my grandpa would beg to differ. Thank God I'm too tired to feel the full impact of what I just typed. I'm still feeling it, though. I don't want him to die.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
