I think I already have a post with this Buffy phrase in the title, but I don’t care. I’m reusing it.
It’s entirely possible that my IT department will veto the current title. My IT department will give me a deep, dark sigh and say “Michelle. Light of my life. You cannot reuse titles”. Then my IT department will change my title and talk about SEO and google searches. I have no idea what comes next, because I completely glaze over after “SEO”. Anyway, if the title DOES change, it used to be “What Would Buffy Do?”
You guys, yesterday was the 20th anniversary of Buffy.
Twenty goddamn years.
If shows could buy be a drink, then next year, Buffy, The Vampire Slayer could buy me a drink.
I don’t know if I can adequately describe how much this show means to me. I would say that it is on par with The Stand, but you wouldn’t understand that, either, would you?
I hang out with Buffy when I’m struggling the hardest. Buffy comforts me. I don’t even have to really watch because I’ve seen the episodes more times than is reasonable. I mean, I don’t think it gets into “super weird” territory, but at least a little weird.
Watching Buffy calms my brain.
The Stand is a different story. If I have a sinus infection or the flu or strep throat, then I read The Stand. If my illness includes a fever and snotty head, then the only things that make me feel better are Chinese food, hot tea, and reading about most of the humans on the planet dying of the flu.
I lean on Buffy when fear is an overriding feeling.
Fear has been kicking my ass for months now. We still have a little one struggling. If you have a moment, send up a good thought to universe for someone who needs it. Work anxiety got so bad that I kind of got numb to it. I’ve been in flight or fight mode constantly and I’m exhausted. Okay, I have a strong leaning toward “flight”. I would love to get to “fight”. I find it easier to process anger than fear.
When I get this overwhelmed, I have to feed my brain something familiar. The Doctor, or the Winchesters or the bad ass with a crossbow usually make my brain quiet down. But when it’s really bad, then nothing but Buffy will do.
I’ve been watching a lot of Buffy lately.
Anyway, I didn’t want Buffy’s milestone birthday to pass without mentioning it.
Although, I guess I did since I’m a day late with this post.
Randy had to hurry and put together the Dude page this week. It’s a Dude Mish Mash
