Fire: bad. Tree: pretty.

Just watched a little Stand By Me again. Great movie! One of those that I can watch a hundred times and it never gets boring.

Day 08 - Most overrated book

Hmm... Maybe... Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. I read it because I heard only great things about it (First. After I've read it, I also saw the negative comments), but it didn't turn my world upside-down. :-\

I finished Buffy season 3 today. Not my favorite season, though, I think.


+ Again, the season starts with Buffy who feels down, who has lost her way
+ FAITH! [Ep. 3] She's so badass, I liked her a lot!
+ Angel back from Hell! [Ep. 3]
+ Cute and funny when Willow pulled Oz's tail [wolf form!!] to get him off Faith. [Ep. 4]
+ Mayor! [Ep. 5]
+ Willow and Xander finally give in to their feelings and kiss! [Ep. 5]
+ Faith's new [fake] watcher arrives [Ep. 7] but oops, she dies which brings Wesley into the game. [Ep. 14] Also, who's watcher was he anyway? First, I thought Faith's, but then when Giles got fired, he was Buffy's, too. So, for both?
+ Cordelia: "Leaving Sunnydale. That's a good thing! I mean, what kind of moron would want to come back here?" - And crashing through the Sunnydale town sign - for the second time - comes SPIKE! [Ep. 8] "Home... sweet... home."
+ Aw, Oz giving Willow the little Pez witch. ♥ [Ep. 8] But then Oz and Cordelia catch Willow and Xander kissing... And everything just breaks away. :-\
+ Spike singing a rock version of "I did it my way" - FTW! *g* [Ep. 8]
+ ANYA! [Ep. 9] Also, I LOVE "The Wish"! What if the slayer never arrived in Sunnydale...? Plus, vampire!Willow and vampire!Xander!
+ Angel is haunted by his past and he wants to know why he's back from hell. [Ep. 10] I think I still haven't figured that out. o.O
+ On her 18th birthday, Buffy has to prove herself - on life or death! [Ep. 12] Cool episode! Her screaming for help - that was weird! o.O And Giles gets fired for helping her.
+ One of my favorites - Channon Roe! [Ep. 13] AND MICHAEL CUDLITZ! Ha! As zombies!
+ Xander has his first sex - with Faith! [Ep. 13] "Did I mention that I'm having a very strange night?"
What I didn't like in the episode though was the apocalypse thing. Funny Xander filler episode but then such a serious storyline, with the Hellmouth opening and all?! Didn't fit I thought. Cool ending, though, when Xander just walked away from Cordelia when she was mocking him again. Cool Xander! ;)
+ Faith enjoys hunting a little too much... And killing a man. And she draws Buffy into her games. [Ep. 14]
+ The Mayor's to-do list: Plumber union reschedule / Call temp agency / Become invincible / Meeting with PTA / Haircut
LOL
+ Cute how Wesley kinda falls for Cordelia at first sight. *g*
+ When Willow finds out Xander slept with Faith, she's crushed. Still. [Ep. 15]
+ Faith joins the Mayor's team. :-\ [Ep. 15]
+ Willow playing with the dark arts - with Anya! [Ep. 16] And brings vampire!Willow from the other reality. Great song in that episode btw, K's Choice "Virgin State of Mind".
+ When Buffy can hear others' thoughts [Ep. 18], she can't hear a vampire's. - Like Sookie in True Blood. ;) So funny when she found out that her mother slept with Giles. *g*
+ I like the scene in ep. 19 when Willow is held hostage by the mayor and kills a vampire who was about to bite her, with a flying pencil!
+ Prom day is always a bad and dangerous day at Sunnydale High! [Ep. 20]
+ Joyce talks to Angel about his relationship with Buffy which makes him think and he realizes they don't have a future, they can't. So he breaks up with her and tells her he's leaving Sunnydale - which he does in ep. 22.
+ At prom, they all thank Buffy for making their school safer. No one talks about it but they know about the darker side of Sunnydale. And that's where they give her the glittering umbrella. We see that again in 4.01, and then, I totally forgot where she got that from and why it meant so much to her.
+ LOL at Giles encouraging Wesley to hit on Cordelia. "I wonder if asking Miss Chase to danse..." - "For God's sake, man. She's 18. And you have the emotional maturity of a blueberry scone. Just have at it..." LOL
+ Faith kills another (human) man. [Ep. 21]
+ Graduation... I get the nostalgia. [Ep. 21] Playing hangman in class. *g* Who didn't do that? LOL
+ Willow and Oz sleep together. ♥ [Ep. 21]
+ In ep. 21 I love the scenes with Buffy and Angel where Faith shoots him with an arrow and first he's alright but then he only says "Damn" and breaks down - as the arrow was poisoned. And he can only be cured by draining the blood from a slayer. - And Buffy wants to kill Faith. Faith gets away and Buffy forces Angel to drink from her. That was a HOT scene! He's also the second vampire to drink from her.
+ Anya hitting on Xander came a little out of the blue, didn't it?
+ Buffy turns her back on the Council when they won't help Angel. [Ep. 21]
+ So, so cool to get all the students to fight the Mayor! [Ep. 22]
+ Wesley and Cordelia kiss. - Awkwardly! LOL [Ep. 22] And they leave it at that.
+ Angel just wants to leave without a goodbye. :( [And we see him again in LA on his own show. ;)]
+ Snyder getting eaten first! "This is simply unacceptable. You're on my campus, buddy. When I say I want quiet, I mean..."
+ We see Harmony getting bitten. [And eventually turned. ;)]
+ Cordelia stakes a vampire!
+ They kill the demon by bombing the school! How often did that building have to be renovated anyway? LOL


Quotes!

+ "Generally speaking, when scary things get scared - not good!" - Xander [Ep. 2]

+ Spike to Buffy and Angel: "You're not friends. You'll never be friends. You'll be in love till it kills you both. You'll fight, and you'll shag, and you'll hate each other till it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends. Love isn't brains, children. It's blood. Blood screamin' inside you to work its will. I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it." [Ep. 8]

+ "I violently dislike you." - Buffy to Spike [Ep. 8]

+ "All right. Ten more minutes of chanting and then you guys have to go to bed." - Buffy to the Harbingers of Death [Ep. 10]

+ "I am the thing that darkness fears." - The First Evil [Ep. 10]

+ "Want. Take. Have." - Faith and Buffy.

+ Buffy: "You don't get it. You killed a man."
Faith: "No, you don't get it. I don't care."

+ Anya: "What a day. Gimme a beer."
Bartender: "ID."
Anya: o.O
Bartender: "ID."
Anya: "I'm 1120 years old! Just give me a friggin' beer!"
Bartender: "ID."
Anya: *sighs* "Give me a coke."

+ Willow: "I'm a bloodsucking fiend. Look at my outfit!"

+ Buffy: "I think I need a little bit of a break."
Angel: "Are you still my girl?"
Buffy: "Always." ♥ [Ep. 17]

+ Snyder, after seeing what's inside the Box of Gavrok: "You...! All of you! Why can't you be dealing drugs like normal people?"


Already started season 4. :)

I agree on Catcher in the Rye. I read it years ago because I wondered what all the fuss was about but I was kind of disappointed. My dad read it very recently and was equally as underwhelmed.

Glad your enjoying Buffy! I haven't watched the show in years but I loved it xD Faith was awesome!

Yeah, I didn't hate it, but wasn't overwhelmed either.

I love Buffy! Haven't watched it in a long time, so it's great to do this rewatch. Now I catch things that I hadn't before.

Although I would love to kick everyones ass for disregarding Xander. I love him so:)

+ Willow: "I'm a bloodsucking fiend. Look at my outfit!"

LOVE IT!
