Tuesdays Are Buffy Days

And I mean it when I say it.

I was very pleased to find amongst my post this morning Series 7 of Buffy, completing my newly created collection of the whole series of the programme. As a bonus, I also received another cable to connect my phone to my computer, from the same company that I ordered my other one from on eBay.

Seeing as I've only paid for one, I'm not going to complain. Although I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do with it, because my phone does only have one connection port... Answers on a postcard please.

The rest of my afternoon was spent (shock horror) watching Buffy. Yay for me.

Before today I'd only seen up till about episode 16 out of the 22 in the final series, so it seemed like a good time to finish the series off. Pete joined me for this mini-epic of vampire-slaying-watching, and we barely left the living room for about 4 hours. Yes, we are very sad, but we still rule.

What a great ending too! You get so involved in the storyline if you watch so many episodes in a row, as the various plot threads develop and expand. As I said, I was completely unaware of the eventual end to the whole series, and I didn't have someone to ruin it for me (Mike!).

After all of the build-up of the previous 6 or 7 episodes, I was expecting an anti-climactic end, and to be disappointed. Thankfully, Mr Whedon pulled the cat out of the bag and produced a fantastic climax to a great series.

I can't be arsed to write reams about it here, because I'm tired and want to go to bed. Suffice it to say that there was one incredible episode which was so very, very dark. It was also a hell of a lot gorier than previous episodes, with a neck snapping and the gouging of an eye. Buffy suddenly got very, very dark indeed.

That little lot took up most of my afternoon, and from there it was on to the pub to watch England play Japan. I wish I hadn't bothered. What an incredibly crap game! And I spent more money that I don't really have... I need to find a job.

And now it's 1.45am, and it's time to go to bed.
