more confessions


i have an old obsession... one i actually had to surrender & give up, because it verged into addiction. 'buffy the vampire slayer' and it's spin off, 'angel'. this may surprise some of you who know i'm not really a vampire/demon/witch kind of girl - but there you have it. i never missed an episode. never. i even gave them up for lent one year, and the entire duration of lent they ran reruns! (it was a mercy from God straight to me!)

i have a new - not obsession, not yet - but fun website, www.hulu.com, that has full episodes of all sorts of things, from last night's 'daily show' to 'silver spoons' (i kid you not). i did a little searching and they have the full first 2 seasons of both 'buffy' and 'angel'! they're free, streaming episodes, so last night i watch some 'angel'.

remember - i've seen these shows before. i know how they started, and i know how they end. and i was still on the couch, with tears rolling down my cheeks... "but he loves her so much! why can't they be together?" ... my heart just aching for that poor, handsome vampire and his tormented soul.

i think there may be something wrong with me. :)

OK Rachel, you've brought me out of lurking my mentioning Buffy....I love that show as well! Almost as good: Firefly/Serenity.

Not sure I can talk you out of "something wrong with me", but the vampire show addiction isn't entirely an aberration (genetically speaking). And I second the Firefly recommendation - although there is much less swooning in that...

PS also check out Joost (already on your HTPC)

You and my husband are the most unlikely Buffy fans ever. He's got them on DVD if you want to borrow them :-)

oh yes, there must be something wrong with you - clearly. And how do you think those little girls are feeling watching that with you... ahem. mum
