Doctor's appointment went fine, for any who might have been worried. Just a routine checkup, no big. Although I am going to have to go for a mammogram, since I'm turning -- *URK* -- 35 next month. Yep, I'll officially be exiled from the young and cool demographic.

I decided to break out the Buffy DVDs last night since there was nothing on TV. Sort of randomly chose "Lie to Me" (because I am a sad, sorry sucker for any Willow/Angel interactions) and "Passion." And I realized a couple of things:

1) The haircut I got last week, which I am not entirely pleased with, is very darned close to Buffy's S2 hair. Which may be why I'm not loving it, given that I am not a tiny, blonde, ass-kicking high school student living in 1997. It's my own dumb fault, though. I told her to cut my bangs shorter because last time they felt like they got too long too fast. And then when I got home I realized that I don't like short bangs on me. It looks too young, or something, but it doesn't quite go with my face.

2) "Passion" may very well be the first Buffy episode (chronologically speaking) that I consider to be wholly good. Up until that point in the series, there were some really good moments, but they were too often tainted by embarrassingly bad effects, amateur acting/directing, stupid demons, lame plots and/or deficient plot logic (a chronic Buffyverse problem that I've never quite been able to forgive). But "Passion" is, pretty much start to finish, a really engaging, really scary, really sad, really good, well-told story. I'd sort of forgotten that. I'd rank it up there with "The Wish" and "Dopplegangland" and "Hush" and "Tabula Rasa" and "The Body" and all the other really great eps. And now I'm really wishing I'd made [livejournal.com profile] austin360 watch it during Buffyfest '06.

Had an AWESOME time in Austin with [livejournal.com profile] austin360 this weekend. I showed up at her apartment with seven seasons of Buffy, four seasons of Angel, amaretto sour mixings and my knitting bag. We then proceeded to spend the next two days on the couch in front of the TV (or in the bed in front of the TV). Seriously, we only left the apartment twice for food. A crazy amount of television was watched by us. CRAZY. But I'm fairly sure I managed to suck her into the mad Buffy/Angel love (and the mad Cordelia/Xander/Willow/Oz love, and the mad Giles love...) somewhere around hour four or five of Buffython '06. I am such the crack dealer and she is my whore. The list of everything we watched... )

If nothing else, I'd say she's got a nice, healthy crush on David Boreanaz now, so my work here is done.

In other news, I went to a new colorist on Friday and got my hair colored a redder red than before. It's very red. Willow red, in fact. Not sure yet how much I like it, though. It's gonna take some getting used to. Plus, when I had it blow-dried afterwards, the stylist ironed it flat. Like, flatter than it's ever been before. Donna Moss flat. I didn't even know my thick and curly hair could do that. And then when [livejournal.com profile] austin360 and I were watching Grey's we realized that it looked just like Addison Shepherd's hair. Same style, same length, same everything. Only redder, because mine hasn't had a chance to fade yet.
