My Savings Account Is Whimpering...


I've laid down the money for my kayaking season pass, and because I renewed early I was given 2 free all-day kayak rental passes (you can only use it if you're with me, I think). The price has gone up just a smidge this year.

Then, because I really, really, really, really need to improve my swimming abilities (which can be described as tread water-dog paddle-deadman's float) if I'm going to stick with this kayaking thing, I signed up for swimming lessons at the YMCA.

Also coming right up: paying my federal taxes (because I don't have any Mommy's Little Tax Write-Offs nor do I own property) and the continued fall-out of avoiding dentists for the past 5 years due to dentist-fear (no teeth pulling, but I have a final chip that needs fixing and then they're going to start digging tartar and plaque out from under my gum line. Gah!).

Oh, and did I mention that I have to buy a bathing suit at some point in the next month? And since I'm planning on lessons and taking advantage of the adult free swims to practice, I'm not planning on buying a cheap suit. Not that I could even if I wanted to. Some us have bewbs that don't allow us to walk into a Target and buy off the rack.

My savings account has already begun to whimper. Come May 1, it's gonna be screaming for mercy.

Not to mention that my calendar is already looking like summer-level busy, only now it's starting at the end of April, thanks to the Y lessons

I think I'm just going to hope like hell that nothing emergency-like will be coming up for the next few months, because that would suck.

Someone Clear This Up for Me... (BtVS Comic Book Spoilers)

I've been dying to ask this now since the BtVS comics spoilers about Twilight have come out, and now that they have, I'm asking...

Before certain BtVS 'shippers RAGE and cancel their subscripions, and other BtVS 'shippers get too happy about the sparkly flying sex I keep hearing so much about...

Collapse )

So, in short, it seems to me that given who Twilight is, he could've accomplished the exact same goal without killing lots and lots of people (Slayers, soldiers, Oz's wife...) by not wearing a mask and instead going with his real face.

Oh, yeah. Twilight and the Dude Under the Mask is a Douchenozzle, indeed.

Bah! I don't know why I'm even shocked by the crack-tastically crappy writing associated with BtVS any more.

*throws up hands*

Have I mentioned that I'm really, really happy that I don't buy the comic books? I've read them, but I don't buy them.

Pee. Ess. — No, I haven't read this issue yet, but based on the various LJ-based reactions, I'm kind of with some of the Spuffies on this: a certain segment of fandom just got hit with a very, very mean-spirited issue of the comic.

Although, I admit, I might change my mind if comics put a bullet in the brain of all ships, including the new on-going one in the comics (especially the new on-going one).

Because, honestly? I will bake Buffy and her creator a million cookies if in the end Buffy was single and too busy being awesome to bother with any romance at all.

Oh, and give Xander and Giles their own focused issues (I've long given up on either one of them getting anything resembling a story arc or character development) where they're not the butt-monkeys or assholes, you punks.
