It's been a long time

Geez - I wonder what kind of dust my blogger account has accumulated over the past year and half. Getting this thing to work was really difficult - who could have thought that Google buying out Blogger would be such a big deal? I didn't, until I tried to log in to my Blogger account and it kept kicking me out for not recognizing my Gmail account. Long story, that I actually don't want to rehash, it will just make me mad all over again.

Since I last posted, I had no MySpace, and I had a 2000 Honda Civic. I am now the proud owner of a 1996 Toyota 4Runner and the owner of my very own MySpace account. Honestly, if it wasn't for the many friends of mine who do not pick up the phone and call once in a while, I would have cancelled that damn thing a long time ago. It is so dramatic in there. I can't visit a single "MySpace" page without feeling watched and tracked. To be subjected to people's horrid taste in music is one thing, but when you know the time of day, my IP address, all the way down to what color underwear I have on when I visit your page, makes me very uneasy. I'm trying to stay away from the place, and I remembered I had this account as my sweet escape, so I ran as fast as I could to trusty old Blogger.

I've been reading the Buffy Season 8 comics, and I actually think that's another reason why I came back to Blogger. My good old Buffy Cross and Stake days, where I would stay up until midnight discussing the many levels of the Jossverse, including whether or not Faith deserved forgiveness, and whether or not she would ever earn redemption - Blogger was my escape from the BC&S board, and all those people who disagreed with me at some points. Oh, those were the days. Lil Vamp Me was me screename.
I'm in the process of packing, getting ready to move and Lo' and Behold! I found my Buffy Yearbook with Anthony Stewart Head's autograph! That was 6 years ago! WOW, time flew me by. I still remember it like yesterday:

((The following is a re-enactment, and may or may not be exactly what was said that day.))

"Babe, your birthday is coming up, do you know what you want?" - Sal
"Yes, as a matter of fact I do!" - Karen
"Ok, will it be a purse, a day at the spa, some new shoes?" - Sal
"No, I'm easy. I just want you to drive me to to Dallas, TX, to some hole in the wall comic book store, get me there early enough to beat the crowd, stand under the scorching Texas sun with me, and watch me spend a whole WHOPPING 5 minutes with Giles aka ASH and take my picture with him. Oh yeah, while you're waiting for me to finish drooling over this British man, I want you to spend a ridiculous amount of money on Buffy memorabilia for me. Yes, that's all I want for my birthday! I'm just a peach, aren't I?" - Karen

It's been six years dude, I may have forgotten a few words here or there, but that's pretty much how it went....

Blogger, how I missed you so.
