And that is all I have for now!
Her Aunt and Uncle took her camping, which she has been wanting to do for sometime. I think it is possible she enjoyed herself. ;)
I love days when the whole house spends an afternoon doing things together. The Other David(tm) is going home on leave soon, and wanted to try out a pedicure. The Guy and I swear by them, as he loves the salt scrub and pumice treatment. We decided to go and dragged David along too. I am really lucky to have such great roommates (and more lucky to be married to one! Yay!)!
I am one of those totally dorky people who becomes so invested in a TV show character that she has spent years watching grow that she will cry at certain moments in that show. This scene in the final episode of BtVS made me blub. Completely and totally w/ snot pouring down my face blub.
To me it says a lot more than a bunch of girls getting supernatural powers. It is a message that speaks beyond the pop culture and right to the heart of all women everywhere.
To you who think that Whedon isn’t a feminist, you have missed the fucking mark. You have not been paying attention. It’s called seeing past the pop culture and using your brain and seeing what the fuck he is trying to accomplish. Joss Whedon gave us the first true female heroine on television in pop culture. I know we had Wonder Woman, the bionic woman and such…but Buffy was the first girl who was like us. Whedon gave us this girl, this person who looked like us and gave her the ability to not only not lay down and cry waiting to be rescued but to kick a little ass and do the rescuing herself. Regardless of what SMG might say off camera, Buffy is a feminist icon. She was just a girl, and a force to be reckoned w/.
Ever since his work on Roseanne, Whedon has been creating women who stepped outside of what was expected and perceived. They were mouthy, they were sometimes crass and obnoxious. They were sexual beings in charge of their own lives (once they figured out how to get there). They were beautifully flawed and yet perfectly admirable.
So, w/o further ado, I give you my favorite blubworthy Buffy moment.
Here’s to the Slayer in all of us.
Tonight it was vegetable pizza.
2 cans refrigerator crescent rolls or your favorite crust, baked and cooled (this will make two small or one larger pizza).
1 lb cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
either 1 pkg hidden valley ranch seasoning mix, or roasted garlic powder and dill to taste, whichever you prefer (i always just throw in whatever until i like it)
various chopped vegetables, including but not limited to cucumbers, tomatoes (seeded…b/c otherwise ewww), broccoli. I also use shredded carrots in lieu of shredded cheese, or you can actually use cheese. tonight i used minced green onions.
mix the cream cheese, sour cream and seasoning together until smooth. spread over crust, and sprinkle w/ lots of veggies.
This is in my collection of things to take for potlucks or other bring your own dish gatherings.
Which Star Wars Character Are You?
You are Luke Skywalker. You are adventurous and love to be where the action is. Your curiosity runs wild and you have to seek out the answers to all your questions or else you will not be at peace. People see you as a great leader, although you are uncomfortable with this because you don't see yourself the same way. You just believe in being honest and focusing on the good in the world. You are sweet and lovable and have many friends that would be lost without you.
