So ends a Yom Kippur that was spent sleeping as late as possible and then watching the Dick Van D yke show with my mom - not exactly how one ought to act on the Day of Atonement, but now I know how funny that show was! I also now know that they used to kill a rabbit to perform a pregnancy test. I was very confused when Robert instantly knew from hearing "the rabbit's dead" that Laura was pregnant. It's such a crazy spy-talk non-sequitur! My mom was surprised to find that this is not part of common knowledge for my generation. As for atoning... there was no eating or drinking, and the sleeping as late as possible occurred due to me forcing myself to stay up way later than I wanted to, which wasn't fun - but I did do it because I thought for some reason that that would make the fast easier, as if the hours I spent awake after dinner didn't count. Meh. I never really found this particular holiday meaningful in more than a communal way, anyhow.

I've been on my period this week, too! Curly period week even managed to get me, and I have a ridiculously long cycle!

Saria: lol If I let Joss give me an aneurysm, I wouldn't be the first person he's killed that way. Maybe Joyce got way too genre savvy and got hold of some future scripts.

...It's a siggie.

I've had suspicions for a few days, but I am now 99% sure I'm coming down with something. If I'm not, I demand to know what deity I've pissed off to make me feel this crappy.

Oh man, I can barely remember 3rd Rock from the Sun! Damn you, Shatner, is this for declaring, "I'm...acting," when I saw you on an episode of TJ Hooker recently?

How is it that The Shat (William) is 80?! I just can't get over it.

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.
My period is definitely on its way soon, pimpled have declared war on my face -_- I need to buy some tea tree oil and see if that actually helps.

Previously on Buffy, Dawn was a thief, over and over, for no apparent reason, killing her likeability with every random trinket she shoved in her pocket. I hope seeing a reminder of that means she's going to get smacked for it this episode and not that that specific medallion she grabbed in the clip is somehow important. Huh, so Dawn stopped being pissy off-camera. Thanks! I think the demon that just got locked in his sword should turn out to be another friend of Anya's. Eh, "Warren and the Nerd Herd"? Nice try, Xander, but two dweeby rapists aren't much of a herd and it makes them sound special. I like just sticking with the generic "trio," myself, occasionally attaching an insult word because they deserve it. I wish we could talk about this instead of confirming one-by-one that nobody's hanging with Dawn tonight, which seems like it may cause an episode heavy with Dawn's introspection, because don't remember the diary, but I do, and it was not pretty. Ugh, DAWN. Stop stealing stuff. The jacket is nice, but WHY THE KLEPTO PLOT. Heh. Joss Whedon's characters have a flair for awkward exits...or awkward anything, really. As evidenced by this painful conversation between Willow and Tara. Tara, what exactly are you trying to do by pointedly - and awkwardly, of course - remarking to Spike that the guy Anya and Xander want to set up with Buffy is cute? You don't want to be a Spuffy, Tara, you don't know what they're like together. (Thanks for the word "Spuffy," Saria!) Ugh, Dawn, you gave your sister a stolen jacket for her birthday? Haven't you ever heard of, like, making a gift? And you didn't remove the security tag?! Well, okay then. You just go wallow in the stupid. Oh hai, guidance counselor with pretty hair. Turns out you're Halfrek, the demon with pretty hair. Are you granting whatever Dawn wished for in her sigh? Oh, or wait, at your session? Because that's so not worth whatever trouble this inevitably brings.

OMG, Dawn, get OVER yourself. People have jobs and classes to get to and you're mad because they don't want to be stuck in the house with you. Child, you have stopped acting like a person again. You also have no idea that you've caused this spell to keep everyone in the house, so you should be concerned, not getting offended at the suggestion that hanging out with you is not more important than either figuring out what outside force is physically keeping a rag-tag bunch of people (and two demons) in your house or those people paying for their rent and food. Even if you somehow knew that Halfrek was the guidance counselor, like if despite your lack of ability you secretly used that medallion to summon her and that's why she showed up earlier than Anya expected, and you somehow also knew she'd keep pushing after you said you were fine and let you make your wish, thus making your lack of concern about this make sense, people's LIVELIHOODS are at stake. You just might be the most selfish character ever. You get negative sympathy for getting more offended at them asking kindly if you know anything about what's going on based on the fact that you are taking them not wanting to be under magical siege personally. Anya: "I think she's possessed." Xander: "She's a teenager." No. The "I'm done being talked to like a kid" followed by a literal screaming tantrum reads like a parody of teenagers, but her pathological self-centeredness has nothing to do with her age. I'm with Anya. She must be possessed by the Essence of Suck.

Willow having "kept one or two things, sort of - just in case" is being played as a junkie keeping syringes even though the reason she brought it up is because they need magic to cast a spell to try to fix this problem? No. You fail writing forever. You can't have both magic as helpful skill and magic as drug together like this, not even if the latter weren't already mind-numbingly stupid in its larger context. Here goes the other shoe dropping with the demon trapped in the sword. I'm not invested in whatever it does because the clash of the two views of magic pushed me out of the story. LMAO, I just realized that the dude Buffy's getting set up with is actually wearing a red shirt. Unless you let Willow use the non-drug magic that Tara gets to heal this kid, he's pretty much doomed. Willow, seriously? "If I start, I might not be able to stop." But Tara's just fine because she's not ultra-powerful? Look, I like that Tara gets to defend Willow and be forceful again, but the reason fits better in Z-movie schlock than in the show that gave us "The Body." Buffy's way smarter than her source material right now, figuring out what Dawn's guidance counselor must have been. Ut oh, now Anya knows Dawn steals stuff, much of it from her shop. She also gets to put two and two together about her friend Halfrek. AND SEE HER FRIEND KILLED IN FRONT OF HER, WHAT THE HELL. Poor Hally. I knew Dawn's issues wouldn't be worth what you'd have to go through, but I didn't know you'd get killed! Oh good, you're alive after all. Yay! You didn't deserve to die over this, you have pretty hair. You're sort of wearing out your welcome by chastising everyone for not stopping their lives to listen closely to Dawn's angst, though. [What was that with Spike? Are you the chick he tried to get with back in the day?] I like your attitude about needing to lift your own spell to leave, though - demon rage gets old and I always like when someone who can act does the old mayhem-is-mundane bit.

Tara. Screw the script. Stop packing up and taking away the only items in the Summers house that can provide some magical protection. Crack proxy or no, these things have often and recently been needed to keep everyone from dying. God, this plotline is stupid. Oh look, the redshirt gets to live. Whoop-de-doo, we still have to deal with MagicCrack. I'd totally sacrifice some random one-shot character to get Badass Willow back and erase this crap from continuity. She'd better get to go back to using magic at some point or she'll end up permanently demoted to high school Xander territory for something that isn't even her fault. Aw, how sweet, Buffy's cow-towing to Dawn's solipsism. Yaaaay.

Is it just me or is there something wrong when I can't search the public library's books on a government computer? Jeez.

Awesome. And seriously, that brat always gets her way.

Hmm, it's been a while, so I'm not sure what you'll think of the next episode since I don't remember if certain characters' behavior was truly heinous or not.

I just realized how much I hate applying to jobs. It's tedious, repetitive and these what-would-you-do scenario questions are annoying. But I gotta do what I gotta do.
