Things I'm grateful for today:
Being fully vaccinated
Unkillable fake succulents
That this book doesn't suck
Does anyone else remember those mass market paperback Buffy novels from back in the day? The covers all featured Sarah Michelle Gellar looking serious or Alyson Hannigan with a terrified expression on her face? Man oh man, adolescent Cait would lose her friggin' mind when she stumbled across one at a yard sale or at the secondhand store. I ate that ish UP! 🤣 Nowadays, I kinda wonder if they were actually any good or if their awfulness was just disguised behind my love for Sunnydale. I kinda suspect the latter.
I am very pleased to announce, however, that I am actually really enjoying Slayer so far! Nina is no Buffy, but I'm LOVING all the references to my favorite & not-so-favorite Buffy & Angel characters. (Wanda Wyndam-Price is particularly salty since her brother failed as a Watcher & started working at a vampire's detective agency. 🤭) Reading this is like eating cake batter made out of my love for classic YA urban fantasy & that good ol' BTVS nostalgia!
I feel like I'm dating myself with that last sentence. I promise I'm not a middle-aged woman living in a basement shrine dedicated to Joss Whedon. (Although I'd be lying if I said I wasn't fighting the urge to buy the new Firefly novel, because I miss Serenity & her crew so bad it hurts!) But, seriously: I'm 27, not 79, I swear!
With that last, unnecessary tidbit, I hear my honey at the door with my french fries & chocolate frosty, so it's time to stop writing, get outta the bath, & eat my super-healthy evening meal! Happy Saturday!
By the trailers of age of Ultron, boooi oh boi was I excited, I was like this MF Ultron it’s gonna be so scary, reality was he was a mess with dad issues that want it to kill the world just because... disappointment struck
I blame it on Joss Whedon
2nd pic is by Andy Park better and intimidating Ultron.
3rd pic is from Josh Nizzi , could be what in the movie they called the final form, also in the movie Ultron has like 2 or 3 forms, he looks the same to me always, I’m guessing the final form was going to be more intimidating...Riiiight.
Finally watched Firefly and finished with the movie. The crew of the Serentiy look good with the upgrade in special effects. The action scenes look great and having the benefit of a show before the movie let me grow to love the crew before seeing the ends of some of my fav characters. Brought more gravity for the ones lost also. Although I hate to leave this world that I've dived into for the last week, it was good to see the crew go out in this fashion. 4.5/5
Posting this as people don't need to say "prefer Spike" on our Buffy and Angel posts. We ship ALL couples on the show so please don't bring your "ship wars" here. We've said this from the start, it's even in our highlights!
