Ins makes some very good points in her “Insomnia + insanity” post. Getting wound up about what happens in a TV show is silly – after all, it’s make-believe. I mean, yeah, I do get irritated if, say Buffy is bitchy to Spike *again* and he doesn’t get a snappy comeback. But that’ll only last the duration of the show, maximum! But anyway, yeah, I think watching Buffy has done good things for me. I’m not saying that if Buffy didn’t exist that there wouldn’t be something else for me to be equally enthusiastic about, cos I’m sure there would be, and will be in future. But I’ve met lots of cool people through watching the show, and I’ve got into doing webdesign largely because of it, which I think I am slowly, but fairly steadily, getting better at.
I also noticed that Ins uses this thing that I’ve only noticed within the last few days, but I’m now seeing all over – putting an exclaimation mark after a descriptive and before a name. Eg, genuine!Tara or chipped!Spike and so on. So, where did that come from? I’m curious…….
