nails I shall remind you much closer to the date! And Ive only changed 28% which surprises me.

tiggy I thought of you a few weeks ago re: Supernatural. Their circus was in the parking lot across the street from where I work. I was in a collegues office which overlooks the lot and I saw the Winchesters car and I swear I squeed outloud. Got lotsa of crazy looks from others in the office :) I was going all fan girl and was cursing that I didnt have my camera with me as I was going to run across the street and stake out the circus and also get pictures of the car. While you may not be such a fangirl as that, I figured you may appreciate the winchestery-goodness contained in that lot!

Shiraz Petra Hello! I hope your trip over to this side of the world was a good one! (and also hope the weather was better than today. Its raining buckets out right now)

How did I get started watching Buffy? Well, as per my usual, I did it backwards. As I clicked through the channels at the time, I kept seeing this guy in bad makeup putting his hand up and striking a wavering atmosphere. Didn't impress me. It wasn't until they kept announcing that Buffy was going to be cancelled for poor ratings that I really became interested (that and I caught sight of Darla in her plaid-skirted schoolgirl outfit.) Then, still not having seen an episode of the show, I happened upon the show right near the end of an episode and saw a listing for a Buffy Website. I had recently purchased WebTV so I checked it out and found myself at the old Bronze which had recently moved from Ultimate TV into new digs on the WB super Website. People were just still arriving at the new URL for the first time. I was amazed at the single-minded focus of people discussing the show in nuances of everything (actor's expressions, slang, Xander's jokes.) I guess I couldn't believe, considering the intense interest in the show exhibited by Poster after Poster, that they were actually considering cancelling it. All posters were in the right demographic, too, BTW. So, I began watching it. The WB was repeating episodes over and over at the time and on different nights of the week. Soon I had seen just about every episode in Season 1. I loved it, but the WB was still reporting low ratings. The Bronze Postingboard was booming, however.

Probably a rash statement but I believe The Bronze saved the show that first year. You know, Website hits were an obscure concept at the time, but suits love numbers, and I believe with the nature of a Postingboard, where you keep refreshing, and each refresh is counted as a hit, that they may have been confused enough by the numbers to renew it. Needless to say, in the second year it found its audience (and two Emmys.) And the youth demographics clinched a long run. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

Having said that, I believe Artie's nifty new spam filter may finally signal the death knell for The Bronze. I can't seem to get a MIDI past it.

Ok, I have thinking about it and here is my story to add to the pot. It wasnt 10 years ago, I dont think, but I saw a preview for this new programme which sounded fairly intriguing. In those days getting back home for 6:45pm was touch and go thanks to work, but I rushed home and watched the first one and from then I was hooked. But then suddenly, for no reason I could fathom, BBC2 stopped showing the series. New to the internet (which had seemed fairly boring so far despite the fanfare that it was this huge thing) I rushed to see if it could supply the answer and that is how I found the Bronze. Made all the newbie errors but finally got my answer and some kind people finally spoke to me, including redruM, who introduced me to Cobby and encouraged me to come to the UKPBFP thing. I thought I was mad, going off to Birmingham to meet a bunch of strangers and, possibly weirdos!
I thought, at least, I can go to bed early and watch Sky if it was boring. At 6am I finally made it to bed and was back to breakfast in just a couple of hours.
I also met redruM, who I had been talking to and who kindly copied me the rest of season 2 (not 3) to watch so I wouldnt miss out. As soon as I saw him I thought wow but I thought he wouldnt be interested in me and apparently he thought the same. Luckily for once we got over that and now are married happily rowing away (but anyone who knows us knows that is normal).

Darn tootin. I find that no matter what kind of other fandom I involve myself in, I always end up comparing it to Buffy and The Bronze. And it always seems to fall short on so many levels. The Buffy people will always have that special place in my heart. The show, while still what I consider to be the best TV ever, is not the main thing. It's the buds, and the memories. Of which I have plenty! Mostly of the awesome variety. Some not so great, but you can't have the highs without having the lows.

OK so the last ten years.

We'll 9 years ago I discovered the bronze whilst using a laptop [strikeout]stolen[/strikeout] borrowed from work, posting from my parents dining room table. Just under 8 years ago I sent season 3 to Shiraz-petra who I had the honour of mmarrying last June.

I've moved house, county and job as well, all in all very little is the same now as it was then.

I first discovered the bronze whilst messing about late one friday evening last millenium. I posted something stupid and was ignored, left in a huff never to return...or so I thought. Buffy was shown on Saturday nights here in teh UK, and not having a life I was in to watch it with my sister (Prophecy girl, who's currently with her boyfriend in Wigan and won't be on tonight) Fot whatever reason I tried the bronze again and met Shaun and Cobby. Two more dissimilar people your unlikely to ever meet, but within a very short space of time a clique of people developed and grew up in losers. My siggy was updated daily as more interesting people were discovered, and after the first UKPBFP it became insane. It was no longer possible to log on without ICQ going ballistic and no work getting done.

I drifted away after the bronze died and ended up at a Proevolution soccer website ( that I'm now an administrator at. Sadley I no longer post there either due to people agreeing with every post to try and curry favor.

Ah well, "Life sucks, get a helmet"

Great to see so many familier faces on here tonight, and having met many of you across the years I'm proud to still call myself a bronzer. It's directly responsible for who and what I am today.

I wish I had something eloquent to say right now. I planned to, I really did. I planned to write some long, glorious post about how much this board, and more specifically, the people, have meant to me. But as usual, I'm sick and the kids are screaming over video games and hubby can't find the VISA card and the noise level in this house right now is such that I'm finding it difficult to even form a coherent thought. Xanderella and I were looking over some old exchanges a week or two back, and agreed that we had no idea where we had ever found the time and/or energy to devote to this and other boards. But, found it we did, and for that I'm grateful.

I'm not the best (probably closest to just about the worst) with keeping up with folks (as white wings can attest to, as she's been waiting for an email from me for about 2+ years now *sigh*). Work is always crazy and Jeff and the kids keep me busy enough for three people. But, when I do have time to pop into eljay or shoot off a quick email, I still find unbroken bonds of friendship. People that are happy to hear from me and quick to offer up words of comfort, compassion, understanding, laughter and snark, if need be. Alot of us have scattered to the winds and various fandoms, but something seems to keep us tethered together, and I wouldn't trade these friendships that I've made or the times we've spent together here and elsewhere, for anything in the world.

So, today I celebrate the anniversary of the show that brought me all of these friendships, and I hope that every single one of my online nearest and dearest and best and brightest, from the ones I spoke to last night to the ones I haven't spoken to in years, are doing well.

So, that's all I really wanted to say, I guess. And while not my most eloquent post ever, it's certainly one of my most heartfelt.

And, for old timesake, *smoooooooches* to tiggy, Xanderella, seniorslayer, CarpeDi, *Sunburst*, Myst, darcie, eirefaerie, faithx5, ducky, paksenarriongurlie, Cashmere, belmont, Adri, white wings, catmint, Dachelle, Octoquad, ginsoaked boy, newt, Catriona, Genevieve's Lucie and anyone else lurking around today that I've missed.

Christopher Marlowe
they're not even that massive, but the spam filter seems to not like them very much. i think i jinxed myself earlier when i said i hadn't had a problem with it.

i've been good. not a whole lot of exciting things going on except house hunting though. how about you?

ahahaha!! good to see you haven't lost your double entendre ability. *snerk*

most recently The Black Donnellys. Arcade Fire was used in the unaired pilot, but the aired version had Snow Patrol's song there instead and i was not impressed. there've been other shows, but i'm drawing a blank at the moment. GA has used them on more than one occasion. i wouldn't be surprised if Shonda decided to have an entire episode centered around a Snow Patrol soundtrack.

if i had been drinking when i read that post, you'd owe me a new laptop. bwahahaha!!!

i shudder to think what i'd have had to do to scroll and work around this spam filter all the time. what a pest!

Supernatural is the good kind of crack! that last episode had me laughing so hard i had to pause the tv on more than one occasion. Jensen and Jared have such great chemistry. (no, not that kind of chemistry you naughty Wincest-ers!!)

How/When I Started Watching BtVs: from day one. Sat down, and was hooked from the second Darla showed up, looking all innocent- I said to myself, "Self, HAH!!" My mom did the same thing- we never missed an ep while she was still here- lost her 7 years ago. I'm thinking she may have been the oldest BtVS fan, at age 80 when it started!
It was right when the show started that I got online for the first time, and the first thing I did was check for Buffy sites and found the original Bronze. Anybody know when UTV started it? Concurrent with the first eps? I think I started posting during season 1.. which reminds me, gonna go stop season 7 and go back to 1-- feeling all nostalgic here!
OzLady-- how is Fonzie?? I lost Sally a couple years ago, but a few months later she sent me another Pem-- I kinda know where he came from, but he was such an emotional wreck, no way he was going back.

Hello again! I have returned from my day's errands, during which I checked out some Buffy novels from the library but markedly did not buy more Buffy DVDs because they were too rich for my blood. I'll just have to content myself with Seasons 1 - 3. (Somehow, I think I'll survive.)

I wish I had the presence of mind to keep track of all the names familiar and give you specific hellos, but I just don't. So I'll say this:

Xanderella, Amarra and Seska are all people I chat with regularly on LJ but don't associate with their Bronzer names even a little anymore.

Speaking of, if you want to check me out on LJ it's kibarika. It's friends only, so you may have to leave a comment on one of the public entries and let me know who you are.

My Abridged How-I-Got-Into-Buffy Narrative

I was very depressed, making myself physically ill, and in the middle of one of these bouts of illness my boyfriend (who is the same one I have now!) said "Hey come watch Buffy. It will make you feel better." And it did.

As for the Bronze? I found it on May 5 in the wee hours of morning, as I was looking for ways to procrastinate instead of writing my paper on Horace's Ode I.11. But my relationship with it really cemented in the summer of 2000, when I spent my whole workday posting.

Wish I could do that now, but we teachers don't get to the computer much. (In case you're wondering: My life has changed minimally. I live in a different house in the same general region, have the same boyfriend, have most of my family still nearby. So if the growing up of other people's kids is jarring and you're looking for comfort, know this: I change very slowly. I'm mostly just a little skinnier than I was back then. Also I teach full-time instead of being a student.)

I'll be in and out.

Gotta respect the driveby.

In honor of the show while the boyf and myself were at lunch, I put ice cream on my nose. I also declared myself Amish Guy.

Yes, I get to be Xander AND Willow.

I found my sig on one of the archives from the UPN switch, in what I can only assume was a greatly reduced form. The only interesting parts were:
groupie of DeAn:)

Really enjoying scrolling today, since the posts go so fast!

wolfguard lostinamericaThe only real problem with the temporal fold idea is that based on whatw as said in ":The Wish" smashing the power center "made it didn't happen" so the Wishverse shouldn't have been accessible to temporal folds. But if we accept that tremendous stumbling block isn't one, wg's explanation is simpler than mine, albeit it offers fewer posssssibilites.
And kee p in mind, VAmpWillow wasn't broguht thru specifically ebcause the spell was cut short. She came thru because when the sand was dropped it fell on Willow 's hand, not on the drawing of the pendant.

Christopher Marlowe ShadowQuest Beldin wolfguard buffyratI've had my odd injuries.
One time I was in the living room while my aprents were usptairs getting ready to go out to Sunday dinner and I was scraping off some dry skin with asheath knife and forgot which direction I was dragging it and got a nice 1 or 2 inch slash which required a couple extra-large Bandaids to cover it. Then back in the Eighties a tin can lid gashed my wrist (the outer edge) when I was stuffing a garbage bag.

First off, helllooooo to Cosmic Bob, who so sweetly let me borrow part of his name!

mabb Thanks for the reminder about today! Even though I'm only in for a moment...

in other words: This is a drive-by, this is only a drive-by. In the event of an actual posting, I'd know where my siggy was with all my SO's and my titles and all that other stuff. I am some sort of a Happy Meal With Legs, but I don't know my number.... but HUGE ANNIVERSARY HAPPIES!!!!

Sitting here, working and listening to the Buffy soundtrack. Most awesome theme song of any TV show. At least that's what I think. Angel comes in at a very close second.

No problem-o dude! I know what it's like to be busy with a five year old! Cosmic Pre-Schooler just lost his first tooth too. Will wonders never cease. I'm reading Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone to him now. He's still a tad young for Buffy.

Amarra: (it feels weird calling you that. I sort of forgot you were you for a second.)

DeAn, the OC has been cancelled. There's nowhere for the indie kids to get their music tastes dictated to them now.

I thought that was what the NME was for.

eirefaerie mentioned yesterday in lj land that she'd probably make an appearance, but her puppy got hurt and she may be dealing with that.
Nah, she's cool. Turned out to just be a bad sprain. She has pain meds that I'm thinking about pilfering . . . alas, I was busy shopping instead. These tragically hip outfits don't just create themselves, you know!

*Sunburst*: I met him! Or, rather, I stood there while eirefaerie harassed him from across the room!" It's even more fun when I watch Lost with my roommate, and Ultimate Drew's name pops up: "Hey! I know him! I was involved in a drunken tussle on the floor with him! It was all eirefaerie's fault! eirefaerie and her goddamned bottle of tequila! And then Dachelle had to tackle him before the Heineken made him say things that would get him fired! Good times, man, good times." And then she looks at me verra strangely indeed

Wait, who did I harass? I have harassed no one! No one! Except that one time that I may have propositioned someone to do the It with me in the bathroom . . . but I swear that came out wrong! As for Drew, he's just sad that he doesn't get into more drunken tussles with becleavaged ladies. Steve DeKnight's got 12-year old girl tits.

Fantasma: *tacklehugs*

Jaan Quidam: Can I interest you in a Spearmint Rhino?

Beldin: This year's SxSW is going to be awesome. Not least because I will be there.

faithx5: Hello, would I let you guys down? Cause I'm sure everyone was on pins and needles wondering if their favorite Handsome Gay Man (Now More Gay! Potentially Less Handsome.) was going to show up. *g*

Xanderella: ! Remember when I used to be afraid of you? Um, like, last year?

Well. Thank goodness for that preview feature, or this post would have had some pretty impressive dropped taggage.

Happy Anniversary Buffy!

And a friendly hello to all the familiar names, and the not familiar, too.

Special hello to L e a t h e r J a c k e t. Just because. It's been too long.

I don't know if it's impressive or pathetic, but I still work in the same place I did 10 years ago when KimP and ~mere~ dragged me into posting. But I'm a boss now, instead of an often-bored worker bee. Yes. That's right. I'm now the Sleestak. Fear me!! Or something.

Best wishes to DarkLady today. And Allyson, your book is on pre-order at Amazon. I keep telling people who probably don't care the title of it, because I love it so much.

Anyway, I'll always be grateful for what Buffy and the Bronze gave me. I can't believe it's been this long.

Many thanks to Joss and Company for the show and for all we have experienced as this eclectic group of web heads from around the world.

It has been so nice to see former Buffyverse Writers and Producers doing such shows as Vegas, Gilmore Girls, Greys Anatomy, Lost etc. you know who you are.  Whats best is I know who you are. LOL

To all my fellow Bronzers who I have had the honor and pleasure of sitting up with until 3:00am or later. Who have also stood in line for coffee, stood in line for Pirates of the Caribbean, stood in line for breakfast, stood in line for the restroom..LOL, Bronzers have always been fun as a group.

Say hi to amorphia from me. Or possibly "cheers!"
PDR You're drinking with many friends Well, it sure beats my usual "TV counts as people" excuse.

Xanderella I'm sure I don't need to explain why a Scotsman is in the pub. I'll let him answer as to why he's in the pub rather than here when he scrolls. Not that it's impossible to be in a pub and posting at the Bronze simultaneously at the same time.

I'm back.

Holy smokes! It is like I've stepped into a time machine, here. So many names from when I used to lurk at the WB Bronze. Every Wednesday morning, back then, I'd rush to the computer to read everyone's thoughts on the previous night's episode. It was a big secret, ya know. One I didn't dare share with my real life friends and family, who, once I got up the nerve to come out of the closet, so to speak, all thought I was just a little off my rocker. I remember how easy it was to just get lost scrolling and scrolling. The Bronze and The Beta allowed me to indulge my geek TV obsessions like never before. And, truthfully, never since. The end of BtVS and Angel marked the end of most of my online time.

Although, I will admit to popping in and lurking at the TWoP Supernatural, which I am way more into than a woman of my age should be, and Battlestar Galatica boards.

Return hellos to: Xanderella and PDR! It's good to "see" both of you.

Posting without previewing and keeping my fingers crossed.


A big return hello to Carpe Di! No, they're not so little anymore ( But they are still my babies. ). Lucie is 12 and in the 6th grade. Genevieve is almost 8 and in the 2nd grade. Genny was 2 when I started posting at The Beta.

*Sunburst* - Well, most shows can get me swearing at some point. Like I said, it's getting rather over-common in the privacy of my own living room. I watched four episodes of 24 and three of Jericho last night, and swear-worthy stuff happened on both. Or at least, I swore at stuff, whether it was swear-worthy or not. We totally should all get together again! Heh. My parents don't even know. ;) They just think you're a nice Canadian girl.

Xanderella - You do? I'm flattered. Or something. I never expect people to remember me... Perhaps it just confirms exactly HOW MUCH time I spent here for a year or two. I really didn't know Antipodean except by reputation, and the few times I remember her posting.

tiggy - Hee. Do you have specific shows you think they should reserve the rights for? I know they've been on Grey's recently...where else?

tiggy/*Sunburst* - Yeah, you really need to figure out what **** means, otherwise you won't be able to make the song rhyme properly! And saying "asterisk asterisk asterisk asterisk" is sort of unwieldy, and doesn't offer many rhyming possibilities, either.

eirefaerie! - Yay! You made it before I left. I'll second your plea for colors for you. I think it's about time, right?

And with that, I must go. It was great seeing everybody here again, though! Like old times. Might pop back after the concert, in case anyone's hanging about.

Thoin, who was hibernating (o.k., not online for a little while with a computer viral infection) bounds in from the Lurkage. She is coughing and swiping great gobs of goo from her hair and shoulders...she marches over to the utility closet and grabs a mess of short-handled brooms, then wades into the mass of dingoes dancing in the corner. Lashing the brooms to the frolicing dingo's tails, she hoists a large box of Liv-A-Snaps and leads the entire horde into the Lurkage, where she scatters the contents of the box into the far corners.

Satisfied that at least ONE neglected chore has been taken care of, she reemerges and saunters up to the Friendly Bartender and cadges a free gingerale-and-lime from him, then proceeds to the Comfy Famlet Couch.

Plopping down on it, she puts the Purse of Doom on a nearby endtable and opens the clasp.

A small crowd of Fifths begin to emerge. (It's not that it's not a lot of Fifths, it IS a lot of Fifths; it's that the Fifths themselves are small.) They quickly scatter to the far corners of the Beta in search of Foster Bronzers and other friendly folk. Some of them haven't seen their Foster Bronzers in awhile and the possible proximity has them all excited. Wise Bronzers groan and watch for small, shiny projectiles aimed at the backs of unwary knees.

Ah...10 years of joyful insanity. Who knew "back when" that it would last this long? O.k., I did, but I wasn't saying it at the time, so I have deniability! I do!

CYMru - you were quite the topic of conversation amongst the london crowd a while back! (well, that certainly didn't come out sounding creepy or weird...)

Things are going OK here. Just looking to ease back into the employment market after taking just over a year out for health reasons. Living in Bristol in a slightly non-standard domestic arrangement. Putting out fanzines. S'all good.

I shall probably head elsewhere in a bit, as the Beta seems to make my browser go a tad seizuriffic. But I've noted your email (mine should be behind my name now too).

VaBuffyFan -- I'm doing well. Quit my job last April and have been doing freelance volume bookselling from home. My mother passed away last July, and we're still cleaning out the estate. Big news was that I finished my first screenplay, Sorcier, in December. After universal complaints that it was too literary and slow moving, I got pissed off inspired and wrote Seven of Three, which is a fast-paced thriller. Still gardening, dancing, climbing Stone Mountain, and I'm volunteering at the local elementary school. Life is good.

Seska -- Stone Mountain is good. We've had nice weather the past couple weeks and I've managed about 2+ times a week. I've got Camellias, hiacynths, forsythia, red and white flowering quince, and a few other things blooming in the yard. At the mountain, the wild plums and carolina jasmine are blooming. Trout lilies should be blooming next week. Tell amorphia hi for us. :D

From Box Office Guru:

Warner Bros. seized control of the North American box office on Friday with the explosive debut of its Spartan war epic 300 which grossed an estimated $27.7M setting a new record for the largest opening day ever in the entire January-to-April corridor. The violent actioner also generated the biggest opening day of any film since last year's top grosser Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest set sail last July. With sold out midnight shows beginning on Thursday night, 300 is on its way to commanding the third largest debut in history for an R-rated film behind only The Matrix Reloaded ($91.8M in 2003) and The Passion of the Christ ($83.8M in 2004). Intense upfront demand for the stylish battle film should lead its Friday gross to account for a high percentage of the whole three-day take. An astonishing $65-70M weekend gross could result.

I have been entirely unable to find my siggy. This is a real shame. Ah well. I seem to remember that it was very rambly and involved too many people.

This is a drive-by, as amorphia is coming over for dinner. (Can I drive by in a small electric wheelchair called Marvin? He's very friendly.)

Dianne Hanging. :) How's your mountain?

CYMru, DeAn Boys! Long time not interwebby contact. Where you go?!?

CYMru2 Give me beer. Beer good. Fire pretty. Or something like that.

clarrie I am a bit confused, but it is unrelated to not seeing you at all. Indeed, it's more related to seeing you at all.

I find myself with little to say. I think I used to post about some TV show... Hmm. Are we talking about how we got to watch Buffy? I had a friend in the first year of university who loved Buffy and we routinely made fun of him for it. Then one day he persuaded me to sit down and watch Nightmares with him and I was hooked. That's mostly it. Ten years later: Buffy taught me how to be resilient, Giles taught me how to be a teacher, Faith turned me gay (the bitca). (amorphia says "I don't know what it taught me. Probably something about booze.")

willa: Closet Buffyholic already popped in, earlier. This board seems to archive more quickly than the Apollo Bronze, so her posts are probably back at least one page, by now.

faithx5: Technically, it should be all about Antipodean, but she's not here. I sent her an e-mail, but I didn't time it well, since she's halfway round the world from me. I very much remember your name from the Bronze.

clarrie: Excellent. They're easier to manipulate when confused. Keep up the good work. Oh and if CYMru doesn't return while you're here, I'm pretty sure Cashmere has contact information for him. I have to get offline for a while. Go poke Seska and amorphia with a pointy stick, will you? They're together, and probably HUGELY drunk, so they should be here.

DeAn: What's this about ink, now?

Y'all, y'all, y'all... why isn't this place decorated for the occasion?!?

*Sunburst* jogs to the storage room, whips out the Magical Key of Buffy and Bronze History, and cracks open the door. She peers into the dark, dusty space, and spies good ole Acathla, off in a shadowy corner. Huffing, *Sunburst* drags the stone-faced figure out and lifts it onto the bar. "My, my," she tuts. "Why so glum, Cathy?" Annoyed, Acathla opens his mouth, and a slight breeze whirls around the Beta - but before the Beta and everyone in it can get sucked into a hell dimension for all eternity, *Sunburst* quickly pops a paper trumpet streamer blowing tube... thing into his mouth, and dons a festive and sparky party hat over his ears. "No need to be a cranky-pants on this auspicious day, my friend. Let me buy you a drink."

Hey, Glow Boy. I'm pretty sure it's been years since I've seen you around.

An open question to everyone out there, now that Buffy and Angel have finished, what TV shows am I missing that I should be really into? At the moment I'm stuck into really mainstream stuff like Heroes and 24, but I'm sure theres loads of less popular stuff out there that I should be paying attention to. And, of course, everyone here has great taste.

VaBuffyFan: That's what I love about the Bronze. You stop by and it's just like old times. Good too see you!

Cosmic Bob: Another friendly face. I remember hanging with you for a bit at one of the PBPs.

How I got started watching Buffy: Well, I actually kinda liked the movie when it came out. It was sappy but had some funny parts...and I was, like, 14 at the time so that worked for me. I have to admit, when I heard they were making a tv show out of it I thought it was a horrible idea and would never work. Flash forward and one night I happened to catch a new show on tv during the summer reruns. Color me stunned when I realized that I was laughing hysterically to the Buffy show I was sure would fail. After that, I was hooked and tried to catch up with all the Season 1 eps I missed the first time around.

I started lurking at the Bronze for a few months...watched WSWB and loved going to the Bronze right after a new ep to read the reactions. I think I posted for the first time a few eps into Season 2.

Anyone else remember when Alyson posted her phone number on the Bronze? I was a lurker at the time and pretty much fell out of my chair when I saw that!

You know you've been playing with Wikipedia (and its offshoots) too much when you start writing wiki markup everywhere instead of html. I swear, I tried to use it in Word the other day (much like I used to try to use html in Word when I posted here all the time).

*Sunburst* - Well, at least your LJ name used to relate to your Beta name. ;) Hee. Now I've posted about Snow Patrol here, too. I'm sort of excited about it. My swearing...heh. Well, you'd be really proud of me if you heard me while I'm watching TV. But it doesn't extend far past that. Yet.

tiggy, CarpeDi, et al. Never mind. Found the VM post. Sounds like the good part got deleted, though! *pout*

SarahNicole - I have heard this about the tenure process as well, and I pretty much agree with you. I think I'm going to get my master's and then cut and run. But I must say that having "read a ton of books" as part of my job description is appealing... And don't worry, we won't turn you over to the tenure police. ;)

Beldin - Well, I'm not in Austin. But I'm at school near Austin, and some friends and I are popping down for the concert. Not going to South by Southwest, unfortunately. My research assistantship wouldn't cover it. ;) I'd love to, though. Except I'd be constantly torn between the music and film events.

Xanderella - Yeah, I knew you were cindywrites. I don't think I ever really knew you here--I didn't start posting till S7, and I think you were posting more sporadically then, and I held you in awe. *g* I think tralf told me a year or so back, just before I friended you on LJ. Hey, now. I think the various payings forward of the VM discs did some good. Certainly I had a lot more people to talk VM with after I used them to hook everyone I knew on the show, and it's all about me, right? Uh...right. Anyway.

In the distance, a closet door crashes loudly to the floor, and two feminine voices screech like
demented Harpies
raise in genteel disagreement. There is a sound of someone being *****-
slapped, the thud of a hefty voluptuous body hitting the floor, the sound of running feet, and
shortly thereafter, a disheveled middle aged redhead in sweat pants and comfy shirt enters the Beta.

StGermaine I miss them, too. And I miss you, Buffy, the Bronze, and all myBuffy-Shaped
Buds TM Buffyenta Ah, well. Its great to see you here.

Smooches to tiggy, horizon and everyone else whos wished me well tonight.

And, just much love to you all. Must run and get ready for the reading before the annoying bitka in
the closet wakes up
I run the risk of getting to the reading late, for which my editor will kill me.

*Sunburst*: You have stealth commentary, elsewhere. I will have to go check out the flames. It's warmed up considerably here, but it's still a bit chilly.

faithx5: As soon as I submitted that post, I wondered if it was you, instead. Did you know I was cindywrites on LJ, because maybe that's where I got to thinking CarpeDi knew.

CarpeDi: I think I inserted you into a conversation I had with faithx5, but I really did figure all my old Buffy/new VM friends knew who I was. It's cool, in a way, that you didn't (unless of course you're thinking, "Shoot, I never would have added that nutcase to my flist.")

I paid those discs forward, too, and I think they've been paid forward at least one more time since then. Fat lot of good it seems to have done. Now my fondest hope is that they someday end up in the sweaty paws of a Nielsen family who can't live with themselves for not watching Veronica Mars.

A sound of crashing furniture can be heard faintly in the distance, along with a few feminine
shrieks, and the opening of a closet door. This is followed by the sound of something large and
overweight voluptuous being forced into said closet, and a shrill heartfelt "Let me
out of here this instant, you megalomaniacal cow!" to which the response is made "Oh, please, as if you
haven't been in a closet before!" Fists beat against a door, but it is well and truly locked. The sound of
high heels tapping on a floor can be heard as someone walks away from said closet. A moment later, a
woman in a red velvet dress and black high heels enters the Beta....

Beldin Actually, Margot, being the sensible sort she is, is leaving the reading in my hands.
The Golden Age of Lesbian Erotica is not really something she can be expected to really do
justice to all on her own, poor thing. Thanks so much for thinking of me.

Xanderella Margot would have done exactly what you did: outed the bitka and protected her
friends. I am the first to admit that my untwin does have her uses. Thats why I keep her around. And,
you havent said too much at all. Sadly, shes unimpressively dressed in a pair of sweat pants and a
comfy shirt, because she was doing chores (or, she intended to do chores, but never actually got
around to doing them because she decided to stop in here, first) I, however, am wearing a lovely two
piece Christmas red velvet outfit, long, tight, slit skirt and top with three quarter length sleeves that
end in lovely flounces, and a pair of black heels (not as high as I used to wear, but being over 250 lbs
and arthritic makes the higher heels just a tad less comfortable than they used to was.) And, Ive got on
the belly dancing jewelry I bought at the Posting Board 2000 party. Or, Ill be dressed like that
as soon as Im out of the shower.
One has to strike the right note at these things, you know.

DarkLady Im not sure weve met, though I know youve hung out with Margot. She wants
me to let you know that she hopes that everything goes really well with the screening, tonight and
sends her love. I hope everything goes well with your screening tonight, too.

So, how's by everyone else, oh, and of course...

Happy Anniversary, Buffy!

Hello, all! I am typing to you from London, which was actually sunny earlier today. Huzzah! I'm a bit bummed that I don't have my siggy with me from the old days -- oh, yeah, I still have it, written as it grew on a calendar page that I keep with me wherever my office happens to be.

An update on the willas: Me and the mister have been in San Francisco for over six years now, and in June bought a duplex in Berkeley with Tamerlane (he who lurked) in June. We have two darling puppies, a pitbull mix named Cooper (as in, that's a damn fine piece of pie) and a lab/great dane mix named Huck (as in Toby Ziegler's son on The West Wing). Cooper is 10 months old and Huck is 6 months old. Puppies!

The mister is still in the photography business, and has been at his newspaper for five years. Last year I bounced around a couple of ad agencies before I got out of that business altogether (hooray!) and got a job as Director of Online Community for a start-up cable network. Yep. It's crazy. But sometimes posting on The Bronze and writing a book about Buffy the Vampire Slayer can get you a real, paying job. I still can't believe it.

Happy 10th to everyone! I can't believe it's been that long, but I look around at all the amazing friends it bought me, and the time seems to melt away. Tomorrow I am having dinner with Kenickie! And the timing just couldn't be better.

hello everyone!

KAM mentioned to me this morning that is was "Bronze Reunion" day in honor of Buffy's premiere, and i am glad to see a lot of faces, both old and not so old around!

Let's see. i started watching Buffy when it premiered. i am one of those rare birds (hi RTBS) that actually liked the movie version. So when my mom read there was going to be a Buffy tv show in the tv guide she told me about it and i tuned in. i was very happy that i did.

i first came to the posting board between WML 1 and 2. i didn't have internet at my house yet, but i had just started a new job where i did (dial up...). so after watching WML1 i got to work the next day and thought, i should see if there is an official buffy site, and i found the bronze and UTV chat as well. one of the first people i talked to was fenric (hi fenric...) it was good times all around.

anyway, i love the Bronze and i wish i could spend more time here on a more frequent basis (like some tea-time loving guy i know) but even though i don't post, i do lurk constantly.

love to all my fellow bronzers!

Wow. Just, WOW!! All the Bronzers I haven't seen for ages!
Happy 10th, BtVS!
tiggy-- thanks for the head-up! *hugs*
Haven't been posting regularly for about 2 years, (got some health issues going, but hopefully getting better) but I gotta pop in more often!
Ah, the UTV days.. I just got a computer with the net, and my first ever post was on the Bronze.. a lame, lame post, but hey- total newbie! And the UTV chat.. I'd been figuring out how it worked, but assumed I was invisible, and could just watch and learn, but nooooo... Peter said "Hi, 4paws", which scared me to death, but made me jump right in :) Congas, room hopping, and the oh-so-fun emotes-- I accidentally goosed Moriah once ;)
Anyone seen Vampyreska or Closet Buffyholic? I'm pretty sure I'm on a roof with Vampy, but can't remember why, and I wanna know if CB is planning on microwaving a Peeps for old times' sake :)
Gotta book- time for meds, and taking Shandy out- she's still got 2 weeks of crib-time to go afore she gets to be a normal dachshund again.. back later!
SO's to all :)

SarahNicole Well then, congratulations and wishes for lifelong marital bliss and etc etc! That's exciting! Yes, I work for them; the company that moved me to Chicago was acquired by them in December 2005. My god. I've been in Chicago for nearly three years! I cannot believe it.

VaBuffyFan Yes, things are good, thanks. I hope the same for you!

OzLady Wow. I cannot believe the OzLets are in junior high!

Polgara Seriously. It was amusing to read. We had some, err, interesting acronyms, which I know you remember (heh) but then I saw someone say "Strawberries!" and it took me a while to remember exactly what that was...*g* Hope you're good, enjoy the IRL showing, and let's get in touch shortly!

Adina re-re-hi to you! You know, I think I see you on IM every once in an while. I should probably, you know, say hi there...

Please don't hit me... I'll make dinner... promise!

Beldin: She did. The last I heard, she was well on her way to becoming a fully fledged medical type.

While there were a few times I had to sit under my desk and weep during the diss phase, and of the course the now famous rendition of "Jimmy Crack Corn" whilst I was printing out the final copy to send to the grad school office, I'm pretty sure getting through the tenure process was way more evil. Not even close to as much fun as doing the diss research! Three words: archaic hazing ritual. *snerk*

I'm sure I shouldn't post such things on a public board. Oh well. :-D

Hi all


I've been quietly scrolling, and checking out the names here this evening, and I feel like I've stepped back in time :)

Although I only occasionally lurk here these days, due to restricted onlineness which is pretty much taken up by LJ, I miss this place and the people here.

How's everyone doing?

In honour of the occasion, I searched through some old discs and found my siggy from 2003 (and wow it needs updating!) but the Spam Filter doesn't seem to like it so I've cut it down some.

Margot Le Faye -- I'm not going to go back and dumb down Sorcier, but I'm not going to spend time working on the sequels either (both of which are period pieces involving the occult and witchcraft). Seven of Three was actually kindof fun to write -- hot chicks with super powers, what's not to like? The script I'm working on now (so far, 30 pages) pushes the super-hero boundary even farther -- an immortal seeks vengeance on the men who killed her husband. After that, I think I'll go back to my lesbian transexual courtroom drama virtual reality slapstick comedy religious musical retail farce country-western / ballroom dance movie.

Jaan Quidam, clarrie -- good to see y'all! Where's Rachie? and narrator...

CarpeDi, Amarra
I didn't even think about that, but I'm guilty of the same name-confussiness that I was complaining about, ain't I? Heh.

You'll be happy to know I'm adding coffee to my nostalgia-high, and I'm likely to beging vibrating and then begin bouncing off the walls at any moment.

The VM thing was fun! My evil hands had been snark free for far, far too long. *cracks fingers* Feels gooooood. Also, it's the quiet ones you gotta be most careful of. ;)

Easily findable through tiggy's last LJ post. Not so much drama as someone going down in flames. It was classic early-Bronze, and cracked me up. I'm such a net-sophisticate now, I find it so hard to believe people still flame-throw like that. It's charming!

Stranger person. Going to Snow Patrol, I see (via other means). I = jealous. Hey, how's your swearing? Have you been practicing lots?

Well, of course the words will have to be changed to "When you're a ****"... ;) cc: CarpeDi

I can't believe I can't find my SO list. I never delete ANYTHING. Seriously. I have like, twenty or thirty different .txt documents here of Beta post drafts from 2003. And I don't have my sig. Grr.

atter, Kessie, PoD - Hi there!

*Sunburst*, CarpeDi, tiggy - Okay, I'm finally caught up with VM as of this week, so what's going on kerfluffle-wise? I'm been staying so far out of the loop to stay unspoiled (also because I'm just unloopy lately), that I don't even know where the loops are anymore! Was it in the VM lj comm?

SarahNicole - I don't think I've posted with you before, but I see you're a dissertation survivor. :) I'm in my first year of an MA, and I don't think I'm even going to write a thesis...a dissertation would scare the crap out of me.

Amarra/wastedfairy - I'm seeing double! Or something...

tiggy - I know! Too bad I can't stay for more than an hour or so. Snow Patrol had to schedule their Austin concert on the same day as Buffy's anniversary. The nerve!

Beldin - *waves back*

CarpeDi - *collapses under tackle hugs* I know! My fault, I know...I've been absent.

Xanderella/CarpeDi - Yeah, I think was the instigator of the first-season VM DVDs. I sent out several sets, including one to tiggy, and she paid it forward. As well she should have. :)

BUT, in case anyone is interested, BOTH of the Ozlets are becoming bar/bat mitzvah this year (Ozlet #1, in true K. style, dropped out of Hebrew School after protesting her lack of belief in G'd. This year she dropped back in and decided she wanted to be bat mitzvah'ed. Hee!) and are both in JUNIOR HIGH! Eeep!

Darklady Ouch! (the old ones are the best). Hope the screening goes well.

Allyson Good luck to you too tonight.

PDR Something rings a bell in a distant dusty section of my brain. I did a short course on the history of science, mostly the scientific revolution and its aftermath we skipped through the whole of the ancient greeks in a single lecture and anatomically, we only really went into detail on Harvey Hi Pooks!, but I seem to recall Galen thought blood came from the liver.

Speaking of the liver, I too, have wine now. Cheers!
we both have wine, so this doesn't count as "drinking alone", right?

Xanderella If I had to put money on it, I'd say that Amish fella is in the pub.
As for the "ie", I'm waiting until I need to explain something.

Catriona Maybe I could make it if I hop on a train right now. But I can't be bothered. I have wine, y'see. Break a leg!
at the show, not the party

Leather Jacket demonic human resources folks, what could be more realistic? Did Wolfram and Hart have an Inhuman resources department, or am I just making that up?

The bouncers don't seem to be that effective, if you can get by with the internet equivalent of a big hat and a false moustache.

Beldin: Ok, so it worked in my head, not so much out loud... in the end it's a vice versa thing... I think of it in a fate kind of way... you can be sitting down minding your own business when someone comes up to say hi, or you might sit down next to someone who's reading a book or whatnot and you say hi... friendships happen or they don't. So, in the context of my mind, I took the control away. I can't say I chose to be friends (or enemeies) with anyone, but paths have crossed, someone responded or initiated, and friendships happened. You can choose to say hi first or second, but in the end, they have to choose too.

Did I make any sense? Basically it was just a boost to my self-esteem thinking of how my actions may or may not have changed over time, but in the time I am experiencing now, I think I've had more friends, folks I think I can truly count on, then I ever had in school - not to dismiss the ones I did have, they just seem more now... and in the end, it felt like they actually chose me... and so, in turn, I chose them.

So, I guess I should clarify my thought process... maybe, it's more in my mind of I didn't choose, I just was?

Bah, I need coffee. *g*

Dianne Bob Dunbar, author of
The Pines had a hard time selling
that novel because of the same thing:
everyone told him it was "too literary." When
he finally sold it, his publishers told him they
were going to have to "dumb it down" for the
public. Which absolutely killed him. Then,
there was a long period during which the
publilsher sold the rights elsewhere, it went
out of print, came back into print, all while
gathering a cult following. He finally got the
rights back, and his original version has
come out (the collector's edition of which
sold out in, like, five minutes on line--Bob
didn't even get a copy). Plus, the sequel,
"Chill Factor" is either out, or coming out
soon. All of which is by way of saying, "Don't
give up hope." Oh, and SMOOCH!

[edited to add my content]

you didn't have to show your armband because i know you still have your's. what with that lj icon and everything.

*giggle* you are seriously un-loopy. i can't believe you didn't realize Amarra = wastedfairy and Xanderella = cindywrites. that's too funny.

*waves* to Margot. good luck with your book reading!

i love that picture. roll my eyes? i would never do such a thing. *ahem*

glad to hear that. it's hard when your animals are hurt because they can't tell you what's wrong.

i don't think i remember the sooper seekrit handshake. so the snapping will have to do. can we sing "When You're a Jet"? i love West Side Story. *g*

that VM kefluffle still has me laughing. the little tyke posted in her lj about it and says she's "done" with it and that people are sad. oh they hypocrisy! it buuuuuuuuuuuuuurns!!

Princess of Darkness
hey you! i was cleaning my room the other day and found the demo cd you sent me so long ago. made me a bit nostalgic.

you're welcome! good to see you!

hey you! i'm loving today. i've really missed this.

what's this? too lazy to keep typing out the whole name?

i heard you were the one who talked Britney into shaving her head. something about how it would help her career out...

it's such a foreign concept to people who've never been part of a community like this that i've flown to LA and other parts of the country to meet people i post with on the internet. i wouldn't have it any other way though.

CarpeDi: I think we did talk about it when we found each other again through VM fandom on LJ, but maybe I'm imagining things. Was it you who made the VM S1 DVDs that tiggy sent to me?

Polgara: I don't know. The spam filter was driving me nuts. It's very sensitive. Poor LJ can't even put in his name. Do you think Little Sister will drop by, today?

*Sunburst*: Oh, I think I need a link to the VM drama. I'm all about the nostalgia. Of course I recognize a few of the VM fandom drama queens from BtVS fandom, so it really is an awful lot like old times. Only the actors have changed.

Amarra: I think I probably figured drunkenfairy was wastedfairy. Ha.

Margot Le Faye: Right at the new year, we had a faked death at another community, from a long time poster who was someone who always pressed all of my -- shall we say -- faux-Ph.D. buttons.

When people started talking about creating a memorial thread, and sending donations to Heiffer in the faker's name, I shook my hair out of my face, squared my shoulders, opened up a second window, scrolled through old conversations, then said, "What would Margot do?" Or possibly, "What is Margot wearing?" No. Wait. Perhaps I've said too much.

It's good to see you here, today. At one point, TV James had an archive of the UTV boards (which were way before my time), but I can no longer find them. If I'd known then what I know now, I'd have saved every word, from the beginning. But maybe it's not supposed to be like that. Maybe it's better, because it was fleeting.

All the best with your reading, today.

OzLady: Flattery will get you everywhere, m'dear. they say. *smooch* backatcha.

RTBS: Well you've got to recapture her. She's a mess. I mean she's making Cletus K-Fed look good. Won't somebody please think of the children? Speaking of which, how's your sprog?

StGermain: I hated LJ (not LJ of whom I've always been fond) with a passion, and thought it might be the First Evil (and it may), but I liked it once I tried it. Blame Cashmere for my defection. I had to get an account to comment on her posts, and it was all downhill from there.

PDR: The birthday was very nice, thank you.

Oh my word, it's what o'clock? I forgot what a time suck this place can be.

Xanderella waits for clarrie, Seska (who may well have finished her training), amorphia, Rachie, Amish Boy, antipodean and others, and none too patiently.

Slay_me -- Know any producers, directors, or actresses who're looking for a fun action-filled screenplay? Just finished Seven of Three in response to criticisms that my first screenplay, Sorcier was too literary and too character-oriented. Log line is: Before a soldier from the future and a porn queen can save the world, they must first out-maneuver the crime lord who's out to kill them. ;)

Well, I haven't been here in years, but I had to come back for Buffy's 10 Year Anniversary. Where would I be without Buffy? Well, I'd probably have an actual life, but that's OK. Who needs one? It threw me into fandom, and while I've never quite found another to take its place, I've been a fangirl for this that and the next show ever since. I'll probably spend the bulk of the day on here and see what y'all have been up to, but I just wanted to say hi :)

And i remember liking it but not watching it religously until they changed the time slot from saturday afternoon wednesday prime time. That was the 3 rd or 4 season I think.

Birthday Happies to Anwyn-na-gig,
Piper Angel (Angelique's childe)

I've been searching, and failed to locate my sig, so I'll just SO to, well, everyone. Again.

deadguy's QoD: Buffy's got exactly the friends she needed. Thank goodness. Although, I'm wondering if they had it to do over again whether they'd have picked *her* again... *g*

I'm still surprised it was 10 years ago that our little show made such a huge impact. Admittedly, I didn't see any of the show until "The Dark Age," and I've been kicking myself.

Most of you, I think, know that the first episode I saw all the way through was "Earshot," which, changed my Tuesday nights, and so much more. Working less than 3 miles from Columbine, and knowing some of the people involved, nothing I'd seen or heard actually captured the complexity of the events as The show with the perfectly silly name.

I found you all much later even than that. But, I'm immensely grateful. You all are beyond awesome.

Anyway, I'll update in a bit. Have to do a bit of work before I can justify more play.

It's actually one of the few channels I can see, I have a very limited satellite service. They show one of the programmes a week but they repeat it several times. I saw it at 11am. I know what you mean, It's an instant nostalgia trip. Much like what today has been. *g*.

Catriona, it's great that things are going so well for you. :)

My last trip to Scotland seemed to involve a fair amount of alcohol which is very strange as I really don't drink much usually. Must be something in the air or my family genes kicking in or something.

Hi, moppety.

RTBS - Good to see you. Cosmic Bob gave you the heads up and you beat him here? I guess he'll have posted by the time I get this on the board.

Wild Weasel - Hi. I'm still hoping to see EverDawn, Keywe, Tana, and SweePer. Hope they make it.

sweick - I've preordered the first issue of Season 8 from TFAW but I'm not sure I'll read the rest. I'm really not that interested any more in what happens to the Scoobies or the new Slayers. Like I said earlier, we need more Fray. I've not seen Love and Monsters, though I've read comments about it. Ir seems your opinion is shared muchly. The only thing I've seen in season 2 is the Christmas Invasion, the next one where they go to the future and meet Cassandra again, and School Reunion. I downloaded that last because I couldn't wait to see Elizabeth Sladen and ASH. As for DVD's I just watched "Interstate 60". It's not great but it is good and it's fun. IMHO. Plus, Chris Beck wrote the score. Have you seen it?

Oh, not much. All graduated and stuff. Moved to B.C. for a year, hated it, back on the east coast. Gainfully employed and all that jazz. I don't have a boyfriend, but I have a kitten, so I'm better off all around, methinks. You?

Ha! I do that with 24 too - "I met him! Or, rather, I stood there while eirefaerie harassed him from across the room!" It's even more fun when I watch Lost with my roommate, and Ultimate Drew's name pops up: "Hey! I know him! I was involved in a drunken tussle on the floor with him! It was all eirefaerie's fault! eirefaerie and her goddamned bottle of tequila! And then Dachelle had to tackle him before the Heineken made him say things that would get him fired! Good times, man, good times." And then she looks at me verra strangely indeed.

Which reminds me... *dons orange robes* Oh dear. These robes do clash with my armband, indeed. Tsk.

Nostalgic SO's to... Adri, Amarra, belmont, CarpeDi, Cashmere, Catmint, Christopher Marlowe, Dachelle, darcie, deadguy, deadguy QOD, DeAn, Denise, eirefaerie, faithx5, firephly, EverDawn, Kaymyth, littlexander, miller's angel, Narrator, Narrator's Eyes, newt, the newtlets, Original Jessica, paks, PDR, tralf, themusesbitch, white wings, Xanderella, and everyone else I'm totally and completely missing here, because I just cobbled this together lickety-split, and I'm also getting screwed up with people's LJ names, Amarra.

Amarra says:

tiggy: Ah, you're the opposite to me. I only chose Amarra because there was already a drunkenfairy on here. wastedfairy has always been my real screenname.

Her puppy is a lot better - I think she'll definitely be in today.

DeAn: You should be! It got to the point where I was ashamed to like a band that the characters were championing. I was very disappointed when they played The Sunshine Underground - I thought they were vaguely edgy. At least the show ended before it could ruin my love for IAMX.

Xanderella: I recognise your LJ name too, probably from Erin's LJ. Yup, wastedfairy is me. It's weird posting under another name, very weird.

CarpeDi: That really surprises me! But I guess I had to be difficult with a drastically different Beta name.

Hi all. Just driving by to say. OMG, it's been 10 years since Buffyverse was dropped on the little screen.

Can't believe I've been posting that long, or how many of you Bronzers I've had the pleasure to meet.


Okay back later, off to run errands.

SMOOCH! Bronzers, Baters, Buffy fans, all.

So, here's the obligatory

Happy Tenth
Anniversary, Buffy!

And here's the obligatory SHOUT OUTS
well, everyone whoever posted at
the Bronze, or any of it's many
incarnations...with the exception of
the "Ph.D" mentioned below and others of
that ilk....

That said...

Dianne and bec Thanks for letting
me know that there was going to be a reach
out to old posters today. (I'm a much older
poster than I was ten years ago, to be sure,

Xanderella And before there was
the Apollo, there was Ultimate TV. But, I
don't have anything from there to post here,
sadly. Although the wayback machine
swears that it is currently constructing
archives for March 2, 1997 and April 15,
1997, which, not having started to post at
the Bronze until November of 1997, I would
dearly love to see.

And all of THAT said....I can't actually stick
around much today. I have to go into
downtown Philadelphia (Giovanni's Room, at
12th and Pine, to be precise) where I will be
reading from one of three stories I have in
The Golden Age of Lesbian Erotica
which came out in January. I actually didn't
realize I was going to be doing a reading, or I
would have come here and posted so that the
SJBW gang, at least, might have been able to
drop by. But, I thought this was just a gig for
my editor, because we got our wires crossed,
but when I said I intended to be there, she
said that was good because I'd be reading,
so, there you go. The anthology is actually a
compilation of works from the 20's, 30's and
40's, and I helped do the research to find
original material. Unfortunately, there is a
dearth of material from that time which has
survived, and, of the copyrighted material we
had been given permission to use, one of our
primary sources cut way back on the pages
we could use at the last minute. So, I ended
up having to write three short stories (one
from each of the subject decades) in,
something like two weeks, in order for us to
meet our drop-dead publication deadline. It
wasn't quite as much fun as it should have

All of which is to say that I have to start
getting ready to leave soon, then take a one
hour drive to pick up my friend Stasy, then
head into Philadelphia, which should take
another hour. The reading starts at 5:30,
and I have to be there a bit earlier, of course.

But, I can stick around for a bit longer, and, I
hope, come back again, soon.

(Sat Mar 10 18:23:02 2007 far i haven't had an issue with the spam blocker.

sta has some kind of work meeting there and she wanted to make it a family vacation and since she needs someone to watch the kids while she's in her meetings, she asked me to come along for the ride. i can't say no to California. especially a part of California i haven't been to before! we'll be landing april 3rd and we're staying until the 8th. it'd be good to see you again. you do realize it's been, like, 3 years. right?

yeah. there used to be a hell of a lot more bronze archives there. i guess i'll just have to hold on(for dear life!) to those discs Cosmic Bob made me oh so many moons ago.

eirefaerie mentioned yesterday in lj land that she'd probably make an appearance, but her puppy got hurt and she may be dealing with that.

funny thing is, i don't think of myself as tiggz. not really. i'll always be tiggy.

i haven't seen a single freakin' girl scout this year! i'm craving Samoas like nobody's business too.

howdy! it's good to see you.

RTBS: What the heck have you been doing with Britney Spears?

Heya, tralf!

Amarra: I saw her mention it on LJ, but still, I want my peeps here (and not the kind of peeps you can blow up in the microwave -- although I wouldn't put anything past Closet Buffyholic, iffn she had a microwave).

SarahNicole! Heh. It's funny we didn't really get to know each other too well until the Bronze was over and we found each other in LJ.

La Timide: I remember you. You've been so busy.

Catriona: How are ya such a wee millie, and still the oldest soul the Bronze has ever seen?

So, where is everyone hanging out on the interbunny?

I'm mostly at LiveJournal. My LJ name is cindywrites. If you have a LiveJournal, pop in. If your LJ name is significantly different from your Bronze name, I'll probaby need a heads up though (yeah, I'm looking at you, Amarra -- you're wastedf...? Heh. I recognize your LJ name).

Wow, this is just like the old days. I have one window open to type in and one window open to see who I have to respond to. Deja Vu.

Dianne It's been so long I don't even recognize the names you said, but it is the people who you post with on a regular basis that become your really good friends I have found. There are too many to mention but the friends I have made through here have gotten me through some really rough times.

*Sunburst* You? posting hungover, I don't beleive it. I really wish you would have posted while intoxicated, you're funny that way.

Christopher Marlowe *waves* just because I didn't before.

Genevieve's Lucie awww, I've missed seeing you too, how are your gorgeous little ones. Not so little anymore I suppose.

janni I don't use the "they got the mustard out" but I do clap my hands and squeal David Fury every week, my boyfriend just looks at me and rolls his eyes.

newt for when you come back. I'm doing okay, you honestly don't know how much I would actually love a nanny job right now. I miss seeing kids on a regular basis, although I will be able to see one in particular in a few months, as I am going to be an aunt.

tiggy you are right, that post was pathetic, and your latest was only 219. What is the world coming too. Also, why didn't I have to show my aquamarine armband. I broke it out last night and everything.

Xanderella I think that eirefaerie was thinking about popping in at some point today.

Amarra is it sad that I honestly didn't know until right now that you were wastedfairy I think I'm losing it.

I don't know if I even have my old SO list anywhere anymore, if I do it is on a disk with the old computer, since I think I have moved twice since the last time I really posted here on a regular basis.

LeatherJacket: Well, yes, I guess some of us are stuck like a dinosaur trapped in a tar pit. :-|

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

(William Shatner: "Get a Life!" :-)

Well, cable cost at least $40 per month. I got the DVDs for $70-$80 each at Best Buy. Figure it's about the same.

I enjoy the DVD extras over just what you get on cable. And I'm hooked on the $5 bargain bin at WalMart, got Sunset Blvd two DVD set for $4.50 along with Marathon Man, Fatal Attraction, The Big Chill, etc. And I go up to $10 for some Special Editions, like Patton, East of Eden, etc.

I get the shows I want to see without the extra channels of annoyance to waste my time with. And rewatch them at my own lesure.

Beldin: Not sure I'm gonna follow "Season 8". It won't really be BtVS series and it'll just screw up my fanfic vision of the post series continuation!

Cause trust me, my fanfic is better than his comics. ;-)

On Who, loved Series 1 Dalek. Thought the S1 ending was a bit of a cheat. Have you seen the rest of S2? Did you dislike Love and Monsters as much as I did?

Christopher Marlowe: Figured I should say howdy during a celebration.

Dianne: Still alive, if not always living it up.

Ojagwers: Grey's Anatomy? Isn't that the nighttime sex soap that has something marginally to do with Doctors? Someone named Doctor McDreamy or some such rot?

Can't be. I haven't heard of leather, S/M, or chains on that show, so Marti can't be writing it. ;-)

Always imagined her kid coming up and wanting to watch an episode she wrote:

Kid: "Can I watch it Mommy, can I?"

Marti: "Sure honey, when you're 35."

My weekly BtVS moment is more like daily. I don't think I go through a single day, regardless of where I am, without regurgitating at least one line from the show. This leads those who have never watched to believe I'm far wittier than I am, and ferrets out the closet Buffyholics (but not Closet Buffyholic).

janni: You thought I was holding my breast rather than my breath because I am you can take a Kanie out of the gutter, but you can't take the gutter out of the Kanie.

Also, it seems like Buffy's Left Bra Strap knows from Romper Room. That show totally jumped the shark when Miss Jane left, though. /old wounds

DeAn: I keep seeing people addressing you, but haven't actually seen you. Are you blinvisible?

newt: Knitting actually is quite hip right now. A group in our church (less hip) is going to start knitting prayer shawls (even less hip, still) and I might join (and suck out all the hip, entirely).

Where is my white wings, anyhow?

So I am to understand Leather Jacket was probably banned in absentia for something he would have done if he had been here, but you can't parse the thing about your board name being his board name?

Excellent! /if you ask me, the newt name still means something.

tiggy: The web archive used to be better. It seems to me that when UPN opened its "Bronze" (Ptui, we shall speak of it no more), it messed up some of the archives.

Cashmere: He's successful at what?

littlexander: So Joss wasn't just slacking, then? Oh, we should have gotten word to Joss about the reunion. Someone with a Whedonesque account ought to post about it, there. That's daddy's new family.

Beldin: I have most of the Fray issues, but never got into it as much as I suspect I'll get into the Buffy season 8. I have established a "pull" (whatever that is) with my local indie Comic Shop, and everything. And the comic has already retconned the one thing I needed retconned. I was so hoping the issue would be out before today, so that we could actually discuss new Buffy.

Leather Jacket: Seriously, I'm sorry for the name hassles. That's more in the UPN Bronze oeuvre.

pooka! Kansas! Monique! Polgara! Genevieve's Lucie! abt!!!

Hey everyone! I wonder if most of you even remember me. It's been so long!

I didn't actually see the first episode of BtVS when it premiered; I saw "Angel" first and was hooked. I was a 14 year old 8th grader at the time.

Ack, what have I been up to? I'm 23 now. I graduated from University back when I was 21 with majors in Jewish Studies, Neuroimaging Psychology, and Religious Studies with a minor in Hebrew. Since then I've been working various legal and research positions whilst competing at an adult figure skater (Sectionals are in a week *gulp*). Oh, and I'm going to law school in the fall! I'm still in Minneapolis, but that might very change to California (most likely Sacramento; possibly LA) for school. And I've got me a boyfriend which is pretty snazzy, too. ;)

Hope all is well with everyone! I definitely want to buy a copy of "IRL" if it comes out on DVD. Too bad it wasn't the 2000 PBP that was featured since I was actually at that one!
