I saw the squirrel again. The creepy Elder Squirrel. Just yesterday at the corner of Constitution and 14th. It was putting the smack-down on an ordinary squirrel. Just flipped the poor little guy over and trounced him. This was no mating ritual either. It was a brutal beat-down.

I think it's interesting that this little squirrelly aberration hangs around near the Commerce building. Makes ya think.

I seem to be more or less back to myself again. Whatever that means. And for better or worse. I think I may be able to be productive and interesting again soon, but I'm not making any promises.

Also, crossover fic? I'm normally not a big fan, but this is quite a nifty, short Firefly/Buffy piece. Very conceptual, and entirely porn-free, so read it at work, and stick it to the man!

There used to be a family of albino squrrels that lived in the park across from corcoran.

All the ones that live around here are fat.

I go past there pretty frequently, and have not noticed any albinos. Nice park to hang out in, though.

Oh, yeah. I saw that piece. And liked it. :)

It's kinda jerky and disjointed, but it's the inside of River's brain, so that makes sense. I just really dig it when a writer can come up with a more or less plausible reason to bring characters from one universe into another. I figure Joss would agree that Spike has a few hundred years in a box coming to him.

I dunno. I mean, he *was* dead, but Joss couldn't let that go. ;)

(Don't be mean about Spike. :P)

Oh, I am adamantly pro-Spike. Believe me. I just love the way Joss never lets anybody get away with anything, and Spike has a lot to answer for. As long as he's in one piece at the end, (or, you know, gets reconstituted eventually) I'm a glutton for watching him suffer. Cause I'm perverse, you see.

*brilliant grin*

Oh. That's okay, then.

Me, too. (Also about Wes, and Angel, for that matter. On the other hand, I don't particularly enjoy seeing female characters suffer. Funny about that. Also, yur elder squirrel sounds scary.)

Nikki and I have had lengthy conversation lately about this. Seems like every show has a character (or in the case of the Jossverse, several characters) whose sole purpose is to get beat on and suffer. Apparently, this is the show's "woobie" in fan parlance. The woobie is never female. Seems that when a woman is getting beat on, it's too much about how evil the person doing the beating is, and less about the character's own arc. Goes to show how far we still have to come as a culture in terms of sexism, even within our own minds.

The Elder Squirrel is fun, because he freaks out the passing suits. He gives me a purpose for my afternoon walks around town.

How you doin', btw? Midwestern weather isn't getting you down, I hope?

I'm clinging to my zoloft, hopefully. This semester is less overtly scary than last year (I suspect you won't be getting teary panicked phone calls from me), but I miss James even more, if that's possible, and every time I leave the school for a trip I'm reminded that I could be living a much easier life just now.

It's okay, though. I'll be finished in May. :)

Et vous?

Pas mal/i>. E and I have been struggling a little with some seasonal depression, but we've got a light box. I've got a week off around Samhain (including election day) so that's a good thing. Once the election is over, for better or worse, I think our tension will reduce substantially.

We are considering going to a Joss for Kerry house party this weekend. Check out http://www.highstakes2004.com if you haven't already.
