Xander : You gotta have something. Gotta be with moving forward.
Buffy : Like a shark.
Xander : Like a shark with feet and... much less fins.
Spike : And on land.
Giles : Very good!

I've been trying to rekindle my interest in reading Buffy fanfiction.
I started a rewatch of the show on Netflix and I've just finished Season One. And I just don't feel any motivation to keep going, even though Seasons Two and Three have always been my favorites. So I think that like Xander I've gotta be with moving forward.

So I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy

I hadn't seen a movie in the theaters since the first Hobbit movie. My husband wasn't interested and my daughter was afraid it would be too violent for my five year old grandson. So I went by myself.

Guardians of the Galaxy was great fun! Lots of action, witty dialog, and a truly moving scene between a homicidal talking raccoon and a walking tree. I know that there is already a sequel in the works. I hope they don't decide that they have to go down the "darker and edgier" path.

I wrote a drabble for open_on_sunday
The prompt was "Pet Name".

"Your shirt." Tara was falling...

Tara was standing on the edge of a vast desert.

"THERE IS SOMEONE HERE WAITING FOR YOU."

"Miss Kitty Fantastico!" Tara exclaimed.

"THAT IS A BIG NAME FOR SUCH A SMALL CAT."

"I'm afraid she never had a chance to grow into it. Poor little kitty."

"CROSSBOW SAFETY IS SADLY NEGLECTED THESE DAYS."

Tara scooped Miss Kitty Fantastico up and looked out across the dunes. "I should get started if I want to be home before dark. How long do you think the trip will take?"

"AS LONG AS YOU NEED IT TO." Death replied.

Today I bought fresh peas for the first time this summer. They're all shelled and ready to go - I can't wait! And I bought a quart of strawberries. It's too hot to bake anything so I'll just be adding them to some jello. Fresh peas and local strawberries won't be available long enough for us to get tired of them.

Thursday morning it was so cold that the heat came on upstairs. And it's been nearly 90F for the last two days. As the saying goes "if you don't like the weather in New England just wait 5 minutes."
