OMGosh exactly 12 years ago today the last episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired. Tempus does fugit. In the years since I have yet to find a show that I'm as addicted to as I was to BtVS and I doubt I ever will *sigh*

My apologies. Apparently my Yahoo account was hacked again so a weird email was sent out that was NOT from me. I found out when Shakatany sent that email to the real me. I've changed my password once again so hopefully there will be no further weird emails...at least not until the next time I'm hacked *sigh*

Happy Mother's Day to everyone fortunate to still have one or be one.


Just want to share this amusing bit that happened yesterday: I was on Fifth Ave. waiting to cross to go to Central Park when a yellow hornet of some sort started circling and investigating me. It continued to do so as I crossed the street and entered the park until I said "I don't want you. Go away"...and it did!

Yesterday I went to my first street fair and bought a few things for presents for various birthdays and Xmas (I do my shopping early *g*). Today was the first day this year I walked in Central Park or anywhere without a jacket. Yep spring is definitely here and summer is on it's way as it will be in the 80s tomorrow.

I had a dream last night about Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She was teaching at a school as was William aka Spike but something had happened to him so he couldn't easily vamp. Willow and Xander were somewhere there too but I didn't see them and Giles lived nearby and of course there was some sort of villain threatening them. The funny thing is while BtVS was on I don't recall having any dreams about it. Even though it's been over a decade since the show went off the air it apparently is still a part of me. Long live Buffy & co.

I walked in Central Park yesterday and today and there definitely are leaves growing on the trees and flowers like daffodils blooming all over. It was in the 70s yesterday and for the first time this year I wore sandals. Yep spring has indeed sprung (even though somewhere out west in snowed this week!!!!)

Came across this on a forum today:

If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world.

After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he’d prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud:

English Pronunciation by G. Nolst TrenitéCollapse )

This of course brought to mind an old scene from an episode of "I Love Lucy":

It's a slightly smaller devastation but over in Fargo at Minn-Kota PAAWS, the spay neuter clinic my friend runs, their mascot Hoss has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Hoss came to PAAWS two years ago after he was found under a deck; the vets discovered he had polycystic kidneys which unfortunately is a non-reversible progressive disease so they kept him in the clinic and today he passed on. RIP sweet kitty I will miss you when I next visit PAAWS.

I just read over on FB that simplykimberly's mother just passed on. I fear 2015 is going to set a record and not one I would want to see achieved :(

I hate this spring. First Leonard Nimoy/Spock died then 2 friends online passed on one dying of lung cancer the other dying of liver cancer. A RL friend who I sometimes go to movies with had a check up for her breast cancer incident of a few years back and the doctors fear it might have metastasized into bladder cancer. We'd been talking about going to see "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" but that's been put on hold. The worst is that my cousin Else's 13 year old granddaughter passed on on the 7th after fighting brain cancer since she was 5 - she was only 13!! I can only hope that this is the worst of 2015 as the year is only starting *sigh*
