saturday night  

So what *should* I die of, obesity or cirrhosis?

I'm not drinking. However, I just bought peeps, chips, and a chocolate bar. Those are food groups, right? Shut up.

I also got a handful of chores done today, called to verify AA meeting times tomorrow, and pulled out my copy of Drinking: A Love Story to reread as an object lesson. I've only ever been to one AA meeting, but I'm feeling needful. I think I kind of hate talking about this, but I am anyway.

Generally speaking I'm not fond of love triangles, but I'm liking the Syd-Michael-Lauren thing more this time around. I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy Evil!Lauren a lot more too, now that I'm not expecting quite so much.

And what's up with Weiss/Syd? It's like, for 3-4 eps, the romantic foreshadowing was so heavy you'd think for sure the writers were going to take the show in that direction, but then it dries up. Did they contemplate it and then decide not to go there? I just can't tell. Weird.

I am going to die slim and beautiful at eighty, of too many carrots! Except maybe for the carrots.

*hugs you back with thoughts of really great sex*

No worries. I like the creepy. Xander: I like the quiet. *g*

Ok, now you've BOTH creeped me out. Though the little Xander quote also sort of ... :: koff :: well, nevermind what that did.

Happily, if Anna turns into a vampire, C, you can satisfy your death fetish without having to resort to necrophilia.

Is sex with a vampire technically necrophilia? Next, on "Ten Conversations You Don't Want To Have with Buffy..."

Why? What have you heard? There's turning? Anna, you coy thing.

I...I didn't know. Excuse me, I need to go check my mirror.
Merrymerryish on March 27th, 2005 06:25 am (UTC)
You're picturing the little smile as he says it, aren't you?

Eeep. :: melts ::

Yeah. that. exactly. Ai, my Xanderlust knows no bounds!

As for Anna turning... she does have that rather dramatic white streak in her hair, and I've always suspected her of craving the blood of innocents. Or, you know, not-so-innocents...
Anna S.: xander_pinataeliade on March 27th, 2005 06:37 am (UTC)
...and I've always suspected her of craving the blood of innocents.

I do, I do! Peeps, for instance, are innocents. But sadly bloodless.

I never thanked you for your S/X feedback by the way. I thank you! And your unsuspected depths of Xanderlust. I had no idea! :-D

That seems like it should be an actual Buffy quote. Or maybe *you* could write some Buffy...? /puppy eyes
Merrymerryish on March 27th, 2005 06:27 am (UTC)
Ahahahahahaha. Ahem.

Actually, I *do* have a yearning to write Buffy, but the story that's battering at the inside of my head is way-post-Chosen Buffy/Oz. Which would have an audience of myself and...well...me. =)

I'm trying to work through it. Like, in therapy.

but they'd be so *good* for each other...

There's a secret to eating tasty bad-for-you food. It works best if you don't go all guilty about it and try to eat boring good for you food to balance it out.

Julia, who is trying not to die of Peeps
Anna S.: cat_chickeneliade on March 27th, 2005 06:07 am (UTC)
Are you eating blue, purple, yellow, or pink peeps?

Mine are blue. But only their sugar. Otherwise they are quite perky-beaked!
julia_herejulia_here on March 27th, 2005 02:57 pm (UTC)
Yellow, for I am a classicist at heart.

Mostly, I stare at them until I can't resist them any longer, then I eat one, two at most, and then I remember that means I can't have potatoes for two days, or rice for the rest of my life.

It's worth it.

Julia, the offspring wonder why I can't remember they don't like Peeps.
witlingwitling on March 27th, 2005 06:34 am (UTC)
Peeps will do you no harm. What will probably harm you more is eating peanut butter and chocolate chips off a fork, as I have done this evening. And most other evenings of my life.

Spring is coming! The fruits will return, and roost again in the chimney pots! I promise.

Weather crap here, too. WTF is up with this? I predict a return of warmth and light, just as soon as spring break is over and the full-on blitzkrieg resumes at work.

But - fork. So at least you are civilized.
peasant_ on March 27th, 2005 07:09 am (UTC)
It is easter - teh feast of chocolate. You are supposed to eat crap.

Is there really a food called 'peeps'? Yours is a strange culture.
Trepkostrepkos on March 27th, 2005 10:49 am (UTC)
Thanks, I've been wondering what peeps are.
I want some!

Don't forget Superhero Peeps, Lord of the Peeps, and Peephenge! *g*

Peeps, frankly, scare me. I am, however, stockpiling Cadbury Eggs as I do every Easter. Mmmmm.

Minim Calibreminim_calibre on March 27th, 2005 08:02 am (UTC)
Peeps are a food group, seasonal.

As are all forms of Cadbury eggs. Especially the mini ones, with the candy shells.

My story. Sticking to it.
Herself_nycherself_nyc on March 27th, 2005 05:17 pm (UTC)
You're eating my share of peeps too, which I totally authorize you to do. For lo, I cannot eats peeps because
A) I'm a lapsed Jewess
B) I have no stomach

BUT, you just might enjoy AA. I know a couple of people who have utterly blossomed in amazing wonderful ways through AA, and met a lot of great friends in the process.
laurashapiro on March 27th, 2005 05:21 pm (UTC)
This is my obligatory pom-pom post. I am wearing spanky pants and a short skirt, just for you. I am cheering you all the way to the AA meeting.
Pamgoosegirl9 on March 28th, 2005 04:36 pm (UTC)
Oooh, I love Zeppo Xander!

And three cheers for attending AA. I am so glad that you have made the decision to live fully, not befuddled. :sounds like a slogan, but I really mean it:
ruthless1ruthless1 on March 28th, 2005 04:55 pm (UTC)
Isn't eating a peep just like licking a bowl of sugar? I suggest that you offset those cravings with maybe two or three potatoe chips. My mouth is cringing at the thought of the peeps. Is this because I was raised Jewish and didn't even know of such things? They are in direct contrast to matza balls!
I think I may have peep trauma now.
Thanks for that.
::insert miniscule amount of Jewish guilt here::

Drinking... A Love Story
..is one of the best memoirs ever written. My fellow journalist girlfriend and I fall down at the altar of Caroline Knapp and wish she was still around, still writing her beautiful stuff.
