[Lent 16] joy sadhana

Forecasts were predicting an ~inch of snow last night, but that didn't happen. I'm told there were flurries of snow this morning, but I didn't actually witness any.

Clocks spring AHEAD tonight :(

15 years ago today, Buffy the Vampire Slayer debuted. I didn't encounter anything like fandom until the summer after "Restless" aired, but BtVS was the first show I really intentionally watched. It had not occurred me that 15 years was the age Buffy was when she was Chosen. Which then makes me think of the fact that I was younger than 15 when I started watching the show, so I've lived with it as part of me longer than I haven't.
