  • three years ago: OD had gone belly up but the part that hurts the most is this was the time my DarkShark left me.
  • five years ago: had a horrible shift at work.
  • ten years ago: i thought my ex would give me everything i need…
  • fifteen years ago: Ray kissed me…
  • twenty years ago: my grandma had a few days left before she died.

but here i am, so far from that 20 something girl that started writing.

“What was the last movie you rented?”

i don’t recall.
2016: Inside Out.
2015: Sylvia.
2014: The Astronaut's Wife.



into every generation an Avenger is born...





I like to look back and find out how did I get here. What course of action did I take to get here, at this point, at this time?
Like, how did I get to be such a fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Well, where did it start? Was it when Iron Man was released? Was it the face Marvel had to sell the X-Men to Fox to keep floating? Was it when Stan Lee took over, way back in the day, and changed the face of comic books?
I remember sitting at the family laptop, my TweetDeck up and running. And it started bit, by bit. This Avengers movie going to be made. The only reason this news was in my timeline was due to one name being attached to the project.
Joss Whedon.
I found Joss when I found Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I inhaled that show, Angel, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Dollhouse, etc. etc.
I found Buffy only a few years after it went off the air. I remember watching season 7, thinking Joss wouldn’t kill her off, again. It was just a hell of a show and a ride and gods, Spike is worth the money alone!
And being a nerdgirl, Buffy is still brought up in the certain circles of the internet. She is a wonder to behold and study. And this week, the question is what is her legacy and where is it?
Well, one of her legacies is Avengers.
Without the success of Buffy, I don’t believe that Joss would have been on any list to be the writer/director of Avengers.
I know, today being the 20th anniversary of Buffy debuting on TV, and the long list of Strong Female Characters are being herald as the legacies of Buffy but I see Avengers as part of that legacy too. The whole time watching the movie the first time, I didn’t laugh. I kept whispering “Joss Whedon joke.” to myself.
And yelled “Fuck you Joss!” when Loki stabbed Coulson.
I cannot wait to share Buffy with the next generation and all things Joss Whedon.

2,000 post


i was excited that i was nearing 2,000 post. i know most were due to blog prompts but still, i was near 2,000 posts!
and then i saw that i had 8 years of my life, right here for the world to see.
back in my Open Diary days, i would take down past years and only have 5 years at a time up? i don’t remember anymore.
so last night i decide to delete all of 2010. banks keep records for the past 7 years and that’s why i deiced to delete 2010 and only keep the past 7 years up on my blog.
it cut down on some of my tags and put me at under 1,900 post. so much for hitting the big 2,000.
and it felt odd delated them last night but it felt like i had to. i feel like i’m sloughing something that’s not me anymore and emerging a bit better. not a butterfly but a shiner me.
