–makes me very dull.Â I remember when I used to be a speedy and efficient worker; now, I am plodding and slow.Â Or, it may just be some post-Post-Season malaise.Â And the other Beloved Team has a bye week right now, so what is one to do?
With the strike, it looks as though we’re all going to be watching a lot of re-runs.Â Recently, I have found that I need a Mary Cherry fix, and must address that.Â Was it a flawed show?Â Yes.Â But, when it was on its game, it was genuinely hilarious.Â It had a certain rhythm and style, which made it a complete giggle to watch.Â Unfortunately, by adding a serious plot-thread during the second season, the show doomed itself, and sputtered to a finish.Â Too bad.Â I really liked it.
I caught my chum in the middle of a Buffy marathon recently, and was very jealous, even though he was–for unknown reasons–plowing through the disaster that was Season Six.Â (with the notable exception of the musical, of course.)Â I think I want to watch “Hush,” which has my single favorite scene of the entire series, and “Doppelgangland,” and “Passion,” and “Helpless,” and “Prophecy Girl,” and maybe even “Band Candy,” because I enjoy Jane Espenson’s sense of humor.Â I do not particularlyÂ like Marti Noxon’s writing, but “The Wish” was actually pretty damn excellent.Â
IÂ adore Giles in every way–so, why am I Tara in this quiz?
I think the Democratic Party, such as it is, had a really bad week.Â Having major candidates conveniently skip the vote was extremely disappointing.Â The next President is going to need to be bold and courageous–in order to try and fix the plethora of problems which s/he will face–and no one currently running seems to fall into that category.Â
