Joe IMed me last night just to say hi before he went to bed.
I got a call this afternoon from B-Side Records saying they had gotten the Buffy musical CD and would hold a copy for me.
Terry called about 10 minutes before i left for work. (To rehash, he’s called and left a message twice -- the day after i got back to school, then 13 days later; and today was 10 days after that. Not that i obsessively keep track of things like that or anything.) He asked how everything was going and if i’d met anyone. I said of course i’d met new people yeah. He said he meant like a boyfriend, and i admitted that i knew that but wanted to make him say it. “No, i have no new romantic interests.” “So I’m still in the running then?” I laughed. I said i’d been really busy, hence why i’d missed his calls, but it was really nice to get real phone messages. “So I’ll have to call more often then,” he said. “Absolutely,” i said enthusiastically. [Eesh, sometimes i feel like i’m in novel-writing mode or something when i’m writing these entries.] Two weeks from today i go home and then i get to go visit at the library. Yeah baby.
I spent a good two hours at dinner, just casually hanging out with a bunch of people. I love getting into big discussions with people, but there’s something to be said for just lounging, with comfortable silences and all.
Layna says i can come up and watch Firefly in her room anytime. Layna is a wonderful person, just for the record, in case y’all didn’t know that. And she has such a great room.
I get articles and reviews from slayage.com and am dipping my toes back into JossBtVS, but my Daddy sends me stuff like The Buffy Blogburst Index.
And speaking of Buffy. Okay, so the Season 7 opener began and ended with “it’s about power.” This is hardly a comprehensive listing of every time “power” is mentioned, but here are a few quotes from past episodes.
See ... I've had a lot of people talking at me the last few days. Everyone just lining up to tell me how unimportant I am. And I've finally figured out why. Power. I have it. They don't. This bothers them.
-Buffy to Travers (Watchers Council) in “Checkpoint (episode 5.12)
Buffy, I gotta tell you - I get it now. The Slayer thing really isn't about the violence. It's about the power.
-Willow in “Two to Go” (part 1 of the Season 6 finale)
Things have sucked lately, but it's all gonna change - and I want to be there when it does. I want to see my friends happy again. And I want to see you grow up. The woman you're going to become... Because she's going to be beautiful. And she's going to be powerful.
-Buffy to Dawn in “Grave” (part 2 of the Season 6 finale)
