Hello again,

willa: Wow, that's pretty cool then I guess.

Beldin: I was all about UTV chat--most especially on BtVS night. I was there even more than on the posting board. Those were golden days for me. I remember, time to go to bed, and then staying around just to 'say goodbye' for another two hours. AIM killed that but least that's how I remember it.

newt: Hello. Is the newtlet still enjoying the comic books?

Sarah W.: Haha, yes I remember that year. I think I saved off the boards from that day and probably still have it buried in some old files. It was a significant event at the time! You're doing a master's degree? I'm doing one as well, though part-time. It's weird to think how young we were back in the early seasons...

For anyone who's interested, I do still watch a lot of TV and now run a blog where I write about what I watch (and other pop culture topics). My email address is also above so feel free to drop me a line.

It's been fun, guys.

Cashmere: Nooo, it's not bedtime yet! What's a little time change when you're having fun ...

tiggy: NOOOOOOO! Don't go posting pictures of me. Aaak! That was a bad hair few years,
when my hairdresser still thought I should have long hair. He and I both know better now. But yes, the
newtlette is huge. She starts kindergarten next year.

Xanderella: Nope, not funny, just completely out of touch. And I completely agree on your "if I
had to choose only one TV series to watch for my entire life." No contest. (And if I had only one poster
to post for me, it would be you. Or maybe Ojagwers. *g*) And I can't believe you have
an 11-year-old ... that's practically a teenager, you know. (Finally old enough for a visit to white
I'm sure ...)

ShirazPetra: I loved VM the first season but have never been able to follow the plot since,
though I do love the characters.

white wings: Thank you! You can take credit for teaching me how to knit too, you
know. My favorite knitting site is probably She could be a Bronzer, if she had the Buffy
love. (And she may, but she's never mentioned it.)
That's great that you're doing that for your mother.

tiggy2: You're totally creative. But that doesn't mean that yarn floats your
boat. I got the itch when my sisters-in-law were all sitting around me knitting, and my fingers wanted
to do it too. It is excellent for tv watching.

Xanderella, tiggy3: We should come back to post about Season
8. I am far too excited about this. I had no idea! It's like a reunion show, only all the actors show up,
and it doesn't matter that Angel's doing Bones, and Willow's doing How I Met Your Mother. (On which
she is completely adorable, no? It interests me (but doesn't surprise me) that Buffy alumni (other than
SMG) seem to do best in comedies.

Closet Buffyholic: Say hi to NARRATOR for me too! Me me me!!! And there's some joke about
her that Adri and I are supposed to make, but I can't remember what it is. Adri?
Help me!

Just brings back all kinds of memories of staying up way to late with all the other LOSERs on school nights, just because i was having so much fun talking. I really did meet so many wonderful people here, while only very few i have met in person, i just feel like i know you all.

Good Evening Everyone,

I am sorry I am running so late on the Anniversary day and all, but busy, busy.

In any case...Happy Anniversary to the show that really did bring me lots of entertainment, and was the springboard into a lot of fun and happiness in my real life. Gotta give credit where credit is due.

So, all you Returning bronzers...glad to see you all.

How did I start watching BtVS...well, let's see--after scoffing at the commercial, happened to catch part of an episode (The Witch) and it really grabbed me. Back then, they were reshowing it all the time, so I quickly caught up on all the episodes.
I was so enamoured by the show that I wanted to do more than just watch--I had to talk about it. I quickly expended my local supply of people willing to listen to me ramble on about how great this show was, so I started looking around on the internet (which wasn't a big draw for me in those days). I found the Bronze and lurked for a while, but then I dove in and haven't looked back since.

Leather Jacket: Well, my house is different, but I am not sure it sticks out like a sore thumb.
Interior design...what's that? Oh right that thing that I've not scratched the surface of.

RTBS: Yo man.

Fantasma: Always good to see my sidekick.

greengirl: Hmmm, I see you all the time.

horizon: Nice to see you.

drunkenfairy: I appreciate you reading what I wrote. I miss the days of being charged up and eager to share my thoughts and hear those of others. No other show has really engendered that urge for me--not that I don't talk about shows still, but BtVS/Angel were always conversation starters--whether I liked the episode or not.

Closet Buffyholic: BWAAAAH! AUGH! WAAAAAAH! It's gone, its all gone, never to return. My life in this respect sucks. I am speaking of course of the Wheel. The machinations of 'the man' and the oldness of the owners led to the demise of my place...the place that gave me so much and asked so little (except a 45 minute drive and a few bucks). Of course RTBS broke the news...sign...and Beldin (Heya B.)
Hope you are well.

willa: Thanks for the sympathy, RE: The Wheel.
Hope you and your very stylish husband are well. The guy is a great photographer, AND cooks meat on fire (last I heard)--what's not to like.

Hollyn: Indeed--this day was indeed lovely.

Beldin: A Month...oh no my friend, the Glorious Wheel has been gone for 4 months...Halloween 2006. The most evil the day in some time.

Little Willow: Nice to see you that is. :)

I'm not going to even try to send greetings to all the old pals I see here, because I know I'll forget someone and feel bad, but suffice it to say...I see you!

You know--I am remiss in mentioning the great appreciation I have for Phoenix and Artie in keeping this place running all these years and giving me an online home. You guys are groovy.

Greg Biffle, was doing well in points last year, this year he doesn't seem to finish any better then 25th when he's been finishing. Kasey, well, he's a young up an comer. I see him doing well. FYI, Biffle is from across the River you know. *g* I'm someone who actually considers NASCAR a sport, even if it's nothing but left turns.

i love making my posts again! i wish it was for more than one day. sadly, life has a nasty habit of keeping us all away from here.

that's hardly everything i watch! that's just the stuff i'm in LOVE with. i watch a hell of a lot more than that.

*snerk* if you could do that, you might be a fangirl's wet dream. you know there's an webisode of The Black Donnellys that's never going to air, right? i have it dled, but i haven't watched it yet.

white wings
you and me both!!

i remember us figuring out we were both bronzers, but you never told me what your posting name was. i definitely remember your name from when i first started posting.

i've been here for close to 6 years. so you've definitely been here quite a bit longer than that. you and DeAn both on the dead young thing. that's something he always told me...

i've read a little bit of Allyson's book, but it was only enough to whet my appetite. which chapter did she read from tonight?

i'll see what i can do. ;) Lost party in three weeks. excited?

it's not that i don't have time to suck with guys. just that currently i haven't had an opportunity to meet any new guys. sorry you're having a tough time.

i can kill you my mind? is this the alterna-beta?

ha! have you ever had a chorus of tl;dr here? i think not.

i'm glad to see it's still in all its fishy glory!

psssh...Owen is getting big now too!! not to mention Liv. it's crazy how many kids i've seen grow up over the years. they shouldn't be this big!!

*giggle* seeing bronzers is always a priority for me.

not a problem. it's been a little crazy in here today. i'm glad to hear it. is the house fabulous? i'm doing the scouring real estate websites thing and thinking of taking the plunge. i figure it's about time...

So, sit back, relax and get those thinking caps on. There are 10 trivia questions under the subject of Buffy, what else? But does anyone know the answers?
Please give other Bronzers about 15 minutes to think about it before posting yours.
Proper answers about one hour later. Remember that your answers don't have to be the same as the official answer - this is just for fun.... so if you can come up with a witty or possible alternative answer then you too can have some chocolatey goodness!
Krispy Kreme Doughnuts for good answers!
Boy, I'm so really good to ya'll. *g*

2. In what year did Sunnydale have an earthquake that buried the city?
3. What is the message on the cover of the gangs yearbook?
4. Who were the joint homecoming queens of 1999?
5. What was the name of the fraternity that worshipped a snake demon? Bonus if you know the demons name.
6. How many cemeteries are there in Sunnydale?
7. Who is the woman Spike (or William the Bloody, as we was then known as) was in love with when he was human?
8. Name the song Spike sings (on his own) in 'Once More With Feeling'?

Manatree - Hi. Good of you to step out of lurkdom.

Hi, Little Willow! So good to see you. I know it's pointless to ask if you're keeping busy. How many projects do you have going now?

Sarah W. - I'm still in Lufkin. Still in the same house. I did change jobs three years ago. I'm working at a hospital in Nacogdoches helping folks keep their continuing education requirements up to date.

Beldin: Were you? *scrolls* Aww. I mostly remember myself as being very silly. :) ? was 17 at the time, and unfortunately I doubt I'll ever hear from him again. :/ Houston is still my true home, but I am seldom there; I'm in school right now. How about you?

WinterRain: My birthday buddy! Remember the year Seth wished us happy birthday?

My Buffy story: I read about it in TV Guide! No, really, they had some article that I guess is not so easily found these days. So I tuned in a little late into S2, and they were rerunning WSWB, and since I had no idea about PG or anything, I was confused but intrigued, and the score at the very end was so lovely, and I was hooked in no time. (It's probably not surprising then that my biggest mark left here was co-founding the CBCC!)

I showed up to the Bronze the night Innocence aired, looking for comfort, and the rest is history. School and life took over after the first couple frantic years; I was 14 at the height of my posting and now I'm working on my masters degree. I still keep in touch with some friends I made through the board, but it's been a while since I've been back. I guess I was lost through the Apollo shuffle, etc. To be honest, the early seasons will always be my golden era.

These days I watch very little TV, but I do follow Ugly Betty, House, and Heroes. I received the Chosen Collection for Christmas a year ago and over the course of 2006 watched the entirety of BtVS again. It is hands down my favorite show still and probably always will be. I have never gotten fanatical about another show since.

Beldin - I fear its gone the same way as my ability to wear shorts without looking like a carazy zoo keeper.

Xanderella - Ah, but life begins af 40, having ended at 30. That means I've got 10 dead years ahead of me! I've still got like, 5 years till thirsty but I'm officially closer to 30 than 20, and that seems like a pretty negative milestone to me!

Cashmere - I see your still coming out with excuses for not being able to handle our proper european beer. *insert simpsons line here* I had to put up with London remember, I think thats the equivalent of a million jet lags. Ah yes, DeAn's driving. The guy is a maniac, maniac on the M4 ;)

Anne - I was just thinking the same thing. I can't believe how much fun this is, why did I ever stop??

Seska - Pffftttbbb. I've never met a responsible teacher in my life! And I trust you're no different (in fact, I'm 100% sure your no different ;p). Can you do me a favour and pass on my email address to Amorphia so she can get in touch, if she wants to.

Good evening, everyone!

Happy 10th Anniversary, BtVS!

I hope that you are all doing well, and that the next decade is even better for you and yours than the previous decade. I hope you are happy, healthy, and successful.

I am grateful to BtVS for giving me seven seasons of inspiration and escapism on air, and this community online. There are people I am still in contact with, those I am indebted to, and grateful for, as well as those who aren't online or I haven't seen or heard from in ages that I think of fondly. Some of my closest friends are Bronzers, people I never would have met if I hadn't started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on March 10th, 1997, been granted Internet access on May 21st of that year, and attended events where I was finally able to put faces with names.

Thanks to Kiba Rika for the email. I planned on dropping in this evening, so your message was well-timed.

Thanks to horizon, VaBuffyFan, and Beldin for asking after me in posts today.

I haven't my old shoutout list nor my signature, as they are both on a computer which no longer functions, but I'll recreate my signature using some of my still-running and new(er) websites.

Sweet slaying dreams ~

Just came across something Dean Koontz said. He'd head of an English teacher who told her writing class that all stories needed a religious reference, brevity, danger, a sexual reference and a character with expertise. So one of her students turned in this ....

eirefaerie: I don't think I was a Buffista until late in season 6. I'm sorry you were scared, regardless. I always thought you were one of the cool kids. (You're still a goober, though. Cool and goober aren't mutually exclusive.)

It got so hard dealing with all kinds of drop-ins who didn't care about this community. They viewed it as a semi-official board (because of the VIP presence) and would come in not to join us, but to piss on Joss and the other writers (not that I haven't had my rants, because I sure have -- I still feel badly for one I had about DeKnight and Ultimate Drew after The Girl in Question, because I was always afraid it contributed to Dachelle's decision to take a break, but anyhow...).

The 'shipper factions got a bit too too for me, and then I took off for the Buffistas. Maybe you could tell I was a Buffista Spirit Baby. That said, even at the Buffista site, I think, more often than not, that I'm a Bronzer. I have a lot of dear friends there, but I always feel about a half tick out of step with the community dynamics, because it's not the Bronze.

Closet Buffyholic: Narrator knows how to send a text message? Oh, I feel out of step.

Dao Jones! raithen! Hi. Hi also to LenS.

I was a TEACHER :P. You win, though, since my sofa is still rented, and I'm not under pressure to get married, thanks be to Joss and all his writers. Possibly because it wouldn't be legal... :D Yep, I still see amorphia - she was over for dinner this evening. I shall ask her about Darren Gough. She is still a huge cricket I want to use a bad adjective here but I shan't :D fan.

Princess of Darkness: My craft work does not prevent me from falling inlove, dating, or the whatnot, the lack of interesting guys jumping from corners does that. I simply have enough time and energy on my hands, and the desire to be proud of something. Plus, warm fuzzy scarves hve been great for the arctic temps I've had to endure lately. But, whaever floats, ya know?

tiggy: I getcha there, a friend of mine at work just bought her first house, and while she does have a housemate, she talks about all those responsibilities like bills and mortgages... and yet, we don't have the "sponsor Moe" weeks like I thought we would in order to get her to still come out with us... hmh. Priorities baby!!

white wings: Thankee kindly. I'm still getting my groove with knitting, but it did produce a few hats and scarves... next step, a baby blanket - now that will take some patience on my part. Whoo!I suppose I should start so that maybe the kid will be born instead of graduating college...

Beldin We Need More Fray.

wolfguard alternate realities are neat...they exist...cuz I say so...
(y'all ... well... y'all who've been around for the past two months or so know what's coming)

[shameless plug font] In my [delusion font] not even finished soon to be best selling novel Willow's Promise: the happy ending Willow & Tara *should* have had the Season 9 novel written within canon (up to and including Chosen and Not Fade Away that everyone is tired of hearing about will be talking about until the rassenfrassen S8 comic comes out and TOTALLY screws it up. Joss Whedon...fair warning: when I meet you I will kick you in the shins after I thank you[/shameless plug font] [/delusion font]

Hollyn I was

you had said
"Could studying for the MPRE be any more boring? *sigh*"

from Graduation Day part 2

Cordelia: I personally dont think its possible to come up with a crazier plan
Oz: We attack the Mayor with hummus
Cordelia: I stand corrected.
Oz: Just keeping things in perspective.

Hummus is a Middle Eastern dish; according to Infoplease, "a paste or dip made of chickpeas mashed with oil, garlic, lemon juice, and tahini and usually eaten with pita." I said...I was being... uh... me. *G*

My intro to Buffy:

I had seen the movie...thought it was "okay" but didn't understand how they could make a series from it... I mocked it. And I ignored it in favor of something I can't even remember now.

Fast Forward...Summer, steamy...Blech... you couldn't go outside for long because you couldn't breathe when you did...I was working at a facility for emotionally and behaviorally challenged kids and my co-worker brought BtVS dvds in for the older kids to watch. I mocked...then a bit of dialogue caught my ear...and I was hooked...borrowed the co-workers dvds and lost a lot of sleep watching S1-S7 in rapid succession. Took me a bit longer to warm up to Angel and Firefly.

S4 is my favorite season. I make no apologies for it. Tara is my favorite Scooby. I've watched every ep at least 5 times with 3 notable exceptions: S6 ends for me about 5 minutes before the end of Seeing Red . On the other hand... November 2005 marked the beginning of my quest to reunite Willow & Tara...within canon. I am roughly 4 chapters away from finishing the above (and below) shameless plug. S8 ... grrr. argh. It is going to mess up my S9 novel.

I found the Bronze(beta) in September or October of 2006 and didn't bother lurking...I just jumped in and was warmly welcomed. Which ... it was cool being able to talk to people about my newest obsession. Especially fun debating such things as Dead Man's Party (She was ONLY 17)...and The Gift (how did the portal know the blood hadn't stopped when Dawn was pulled away from it?)

That's my story and I'm sticking to it...

--graduated and got my MS
--moved back home to New England
--adopted the best dog ever
--bought a leetle house with a big back yard
--met the Love of My Life that order. :) Now it looks like the plan is to enter a nursing program in the fall, if they'll have me.

So great to see everyone! I'll attempt to scroll and name names and such, as much as I can. It helps that the SO is playing a gig tonight and that the aforementioned Love of My Life (let's call her Baby M) is finally sleeping, so I have a little more time than usual to do so.

Xanderella today is her neice's confirmation, so she's doing the family thing. I got a text from her earlier. She's finally jumped on the actual cell phone that works bandwagon, and she's a scary thing to behold. I'll tell her you were asking about her.

Hollyn yes, well, Oregon said "reciprocity, what's that?" so I had to decide whether to do the in-house limited (very limited) admission or take the exam, so I thought - well, I've already taken two, how bad could it be to take a third? remind me not to do that again. Good luck when it's your turn!

seniorslayer and newt: The Buffy Season 8 comic was slated to come out on March 7, but there was a delay, so it won't be out until this Wednesday (hopefully). In other words, you shouldn't have any problem getting it.

newt: I figured you were just joking.

Matt the Bruins Fan: It's so good to see you here, not that I don't see you elsewhere, and none of it is as nice as seeing you in person.

white wings: A neighbor taught me to knit when I was little (I still have my pink needles, somewhere), but she didn't teach me how to tie anything off. I can make you the world's longest scarf, with one needle still attached. Hopefully, that will change soon.

Get out? I just got here? Am I gonna turn into a pumpkin?

SheBit: Thank you, and you're on the bandwagon all right, baby. I never knew your intended board name was longer.

tiggy: Thank you. I was afraid I'd come back to a chorus of: tl;dr.

eirefaerie: Afraid of me? Silly goober. I always loved you. Didn't we meet on the K*tten board (with sassyeggs) before you decamped over here?

They had the best spoilers, before the jihad.

nails: Well then, could you explain why Amish Boy still isn't here? Of course, you're probably asleep, so maybe not.

RTBS: I'd say you were lying about BSX, but my youngest -- child I hadn't even conceived when I found BtVS is in first grade, and soon to turn seven.

I too would beg Anne for a quiz, even though I more often read them over when scrolling, rather than took one, but I think I'm signing off for the night.

Denise2: Heck, this is a lot of work, without the drama.

I thought I'd share some of my fondest bronze related moment with you all. I've just realised in a previous post that its been something like 7 years since I first started posting. I remember the first few weeks just lurking trying to figure out what the hell was going on. Then I posted and everyone was sooo friendly. Although, I stepped right into the middle of a BBS debate (Dead :p), which was certainly interesting for a newb.

After that I pretty much spent all of my free time there. I was in college so when I wasn't drinking I was in the Bronze (note, there was no studying). Eventually, I managed to merge my two past times and went drinking with some bronzers. It was very strange. I met up with Dean:) and Amorphia in London and decided to drive. BIG mistake because I got horrifically lost and by the time I made it, I was knackered and ended up being pretty quiet. Which, anyone who has met me will tell you, isn't like me.

After that it all snowballed a bit. I ended up spending a scary amount of time on Amorphia's sofa and DeAn's floor (thank you furry green coat, I love you so) and frequented a few events (UKPBFP, Nocturnal WPBFP etc.). it really was an exciting time in my life, I loved every unpredictable minute. it was amazing. Unfortunately, my activity tailed off a bit after that. I think it was mostly the pesky job thing. Also, getting a girlfriend didn't help. You know, they want to actually spend time with you, thats a pain.

Anyway, some of my favourite moments in no particular order:
Setting my hair on fire at nocturnal
Melting my glasses in spilt Jack Daniels at the UKPBFP
Waking up in a hotel room in London with DeAn (no, not like that) wearing a Burger King hat and with no idea how I got there from Bristol
Amorphia telling me about how she tried to accidentally marry Darren Gough
Drinking Stella in a gay bar in London with Cashmere and being too oblivious to everything to even realise it was a gay pub and we were standing out like a sore thumb
Meeting Amber Benson
Seeing F*M (and getting the t Shirt, which I'm actually wearing now for nostalgia's sake)
Seeing certain bronzers appear on the Big Breakfast with Amber Benson
Becoming really good friends with everyone I met, especially DeAn, Amorphia, Cashmere, Roman Around, Brit Slayer, Joey Emma, Vlad, Rainbow, Mump, PoL and everyone else I shared a bed/pint/shower/slippery nipple with. ;)
UNBELIEVABLY good times.

So what are we doing?

First, a grateful happy anniversary to BtVS. Pleased to have been an initial viewer and a return viewer and a fan.

At the time of its premiere I was working at an educational/religious television station. Transitioning to a desk job, if I have the year correct on when that happened correct.

At the time I rediscovered the show, it filled a big vacation void. And in that void I gravitated to Bronzebeta, looking for more information on the show over the 2 years I missed. Their college years.

Skip ahead through leaving that job, spending the next year with people I met here and met in valleys and hills and cities and vegases and woods. Luckily I also had the pleasure of hanging out with some of them (more original Bronzers) in 2005. That was the last of my bronzer meetage I think. Going again to DragonCon. If anyone's going, stop me and say "hi."

I still keep in touch with some of y'all from my posting days here through livejournal. And I still lurk here.

Where am I now? I'm approaching year three at the NBC affiliate, which just got a new set of leadership. Spent the early morning as Tape Op for 2 hours of live news and then the rest of the morning unlighting a studio. Came home very dusty. Like a colleague said -- a decade of regular dust and an extra helping of Katrina dust. This city, incidentally, is its own areacode of Bizarro.

On my viewing list these days are Heroes, Studio 60, Lost, Medium, Bones, Shark, My Name Is Earl, Las Vegas, Battlestar Galactica, Dresden Files, Monk, Psych.

hey there. thanks. well, unhappy... not really. just frustrated and upset. but it will probably look better tomorrow. and if not, it should be okay when I get back from LA and Vancouver cuz that means that Ill get away from the reason of my feelings for a while. ;) and well Im not sure if knitting would have that affect on me lol. but Im willing to give it another try.

oh and be lucky that you dont have time to suck with guys. I have this a lot in the last time. lol ill soon have to get me a t-shirt saying "I dont do coffee so dont ask!". the guys at my work have a serious problem with dating. and somehow Im their prefered target. that is soooo stressy and pisses me really off lol. and when I finally realize that i have feelings for the guy who would be perfect for me.... who also has feelings for me for a long time... his right now gf is pregnant. And he stays with her because he's just that kind of guy. and i would also never tell him to leave her for me. *sighs* see you are sooo not missing anything. see thats why im thinking about knitting lol

{{HUGS}} Hon. Hey good going with the nursing school. Me after being unemployed for a 1 1/2 years, got a job doing purchasing. Small company, but I like who I work for. I've been there a little over a year now.

The last 10 years have been such a blast hanging out with all the Bronzers. The PBP's I went to were fun, the PBFP's were even more fun. It was the hanging out, the arguing, the discussing, the gossiping. Meeting new Bronzers in the elevators. Asking a complete stranger if they are a Bronzer. Seeing people all over year after year.

And for the final Bronze PBP....lets have a cheer for "Frank".....That snake could party. LOL

And I hope more Bronzers get to see the documentary... it's such an odd niche-ey experience, to know the names and references. Lots of laughs and "awwwws" out of us audience members. I can't imagine how it would play back to someone completely unfamiliar with the Bronze.

Xanderella: I was so frustrated at how stoopit I was that I couldn't get anywhere on that Moloch game. Til everyone realized they couldn't get anywhere on that Moloch game.

I can't actually remember when I first started posting on the bronze but it was well over five years ago. Now, I'm hurtling towards bloody 30.

Ok, so I lied. I'm still here.

OldManFan - *waves*

Xanderella - *applauds* - big yay for successfully (sort of) combining my two top fandoms. Sauron would so kick Glory's arse, though.

I spy a bandwagon - well, Xanderella and eirefaerie and maybe a couple of others did it - so I'll jump aboard.

It's strange to say, but I really don't remember my first introduction to BtVS. I know that I've watched since the beginning, when it started over here in the UK in the once hallowed BBC2 6pm 'cool US culty imports' slot. I miss that slot. Every day as a teenager I'd get home from school (or college/sixth form by the time of Buffy), watch Neighbours and then hunker down for a blissful hour (or forty minutes, without the breaks) of geeky viewing. In fact, when Welcome to the Hellmouth first aired I was probably expecting a bit of Trek and wondered what the hell this thing with the Vampires and the poorly-dressed high school kids was, and where my usual dose of boldly going was.

I guess I warmed to the idea of the vampires and high school kids, because I never missed an episode after that first one.

I mean, what wasn't to like about it? There was the guy from the Gold Blend ads, who, to my seventeen year old eyes, was suddenly rather appealing. There was a hot young guy who would turn out to be a vampire - hence a hot young guy who, in theory, would always be so - sadly, it seems that pigs' blood is a little more fattening than the human variety. There was a slightly nerdy girl for me to identify with. Oh, and did I mention the vampires? Lots of those.

I don't remember my exact thought on first seeing this odd little show, but I remember my feeling during its seven year run. They were varied. I have laughed, I have cried, I have even sung along. I have shouted at the tv and sobbed into pillows. I have spent a fortune on those new-fangled dvd thingies and hardly flinched, because I just had to own them, to be able to watch them whenever I felt like it.

And now I'll have another title to add to my already impressive standing order list at the comic shop. Because Joss just wouldn't let them go - with either a bang or a whimper. Roll on season 8. I've missed you guys.

Then there's the Bronze, of course. I was rather a latecomer to the Bronze, only discovering it in the winter of 2002. I'd graduated and was working in London, but I had internet access and had heard about a chatroom type thing about Buffy in a magazine. I'd never been to such a place before - for Buffy or anything else - so I thought I'd take a look.

There was some initial annoyance when I tried to post and the family board controls wouldn't accept my username of choice, so I cut off a couple of letters and SheBit was born - a name which is now so much a part of me that I even respond to it in person.

I spent a couple of great years here, discussing episodes in fine detail, playing silly games and, most importantly, making friends. Though I've been friendly with some Bronzers who I'll most likely never meet, there are others who are now close personal friends - so close that I sometimes forget how I met them. I sometimes get funny looks when asked how I came to be friends with someone and reply that we met at an online Buffy community. I remember my first Bronze meet, when I was so nervous about coming face to face with people I'd only ever spoken to online. I put faces and voices to usernames. I found out that TheStage was a girl. I made friends who I hope I will still be friends with in twenty years. Hell, I even had a hand in one of them converting to my religion - talk about a tv series changing your life.

So, ten years. Hard to believe. Ten years of making fictional friends and real ones. Ten years of laughing and crying, and hopefully another ten years and more of doing the same with people who I would never have met if not for a silly show with vampires and high school kids.

Thanks Joss, and thanks to everyone else, too - be they writer, director, actor or Bronzer. It's been a good ten years.

Wow, waffle much?

well...i used to be all about Veronica Mars, but that love has been waning quite a bit. i'm currently in love with Supernatural, The Office, Heroes, The Black Donnellys, Friday Night Lights and Grey's Anatomy. (yes, i still watch entirely too much tv.)

i haven't had a chance to suck with guys lately. i figure there's plenty of time for it.

you are entirely too sweet to me. *smoooooooooooooch*

you're very welcome!

hmmm...are you in a loop i should be aware of? ;)

my posts were long, but should not have been taken in an intimidating fashion. i'm only a b!tch when the situation calls for it. ;)

we were much better at multi-tasking back then, weren't we? at least i was! i'm laughing my butt off that you don't remember what half the crap in your siggy means. that's hilarious!

i'm totally out of practice! these posts are teeny compared to what i used to do.

penny pinching might be a little bit more difficult if i end up buying myself a house. we'll see what happens...

Tartie said she was the most well behaved Kanie, but i think i have to dispute her on that. i think i'm a shoe-in for that one. ;)

DeAn: The Windy City is always ready for you! ;) I hope that we're finally seeing a bit of a warm-up, but it could be a few more weeks before it permanently kicks in. As much as I love the summer here, I think one of the best times to come is early fall - like late September/early October. If you are seriously looking at coming this year, I'd recommend before May or after July, because during those months, I'll be crazily swamped. *g* *SMOOCH*

Back from the IRL screening. Wow, it was so incredibly cool to see that on the 10th anniversary... to know all the names, and laugh at the references... Major nostalgia folks. So much was covered... from RTBS posting on.. what was it... the first week or so of the Bronze? to PBPs, WITTs, LOSERs, the Penlind debacle, Alyson posting her phone #, Caritas, Wolfram & Hart, Buffy13's wedding, etc. and yet in some ways it feels like it barely scratched the surface of all the things the Bronze has meant to Bronzers, because there's so much that could be said. So much fun seeing folks like Claris, 'stina, Jaan Quidam, RTBS, Monique, the Willas, Chrissy, Godeater, OzLady, Missi, Polgara, Allyson, PDR, SarahNicole, Margot, etc. talking about their experiences as a Bronzer.

TMorel: YOUR picture turned up in the documentary right after the topic of child molesters, as if to say, look at THIS guy!! Wonder what that was all about. *eg*

Tiamat: Farrell's here was a disappointment. What should I make for dinner tonight?

Closet Buffyholic!: woo HOOOO for being DONE. Get down with your bad spa and puppies self all the way. *smoochA!* I am in love with your brilliant, brilliant lawyer scariness.

It would be cool if there were to be a PBP so folks could get together and see each other.

It was fun the couple times I went to Mayberry to see the gang there, and the one time I went down to Hotlanta.

What I'm watching these days:
The Dresden Files - pretty neat show. I think Bob is cool.
Heros - I just started watching this. There were so many twists and turns in the last ep. I'm bummed I have to wait till the end of April now for it to come back.
reruns of Buffy and Angel when I can chatch them.

Happy 10th to the Bronze!

Not up to par today, so I'm mostly lurking. Mostly.

How I came to the Bronze? I started out right from the beginnig. I watched Buffy right from the start too. I'd seen the movie and was interested in how a tv series would go. When I first started posting, I went under the name Lisa Marie. Not very original but it took me a while to come up with something better.

I've since lost my SO list and my siggy. But to this day I stop in at the Bronze once in a while. It'll always be up there at the top of my screen, an icon symbolized by a comfy red chair. It's where I'd sit with my cup of coffee straight up, enjoying the music and the conversation.

Enjoy the celebration Bronzers!

Much that once was is lost. For none now live who remember it.

The Fellowship of The Bronze

It began with the calling of the greatest Chosen One. Then three were given to her -- to manus, the hand: Spiritus, Animus (aka 'key guy' aka 'guy with a rock') and Sophus -- mortal, wisest and fairest of all humans. Four, if you count Oz Caninus. Five, if you count Cordelia Bitcas Regnas. Five they were together: slaying researching, spell casting, howling at the moon, snarking, and being the aforementioned guy with a rock.

And nine...nine...well, I'm sure we could come up with some combination of characters to give us nine (and let's forget that I skipped over seven). Let's see: Angel, Joyce, Tara, Anya, Spike, Dru, Amy, Jenny Calendar, and Riley Finn were gifted to the race of Men, who above all else, desire good TV (and pretty people on it).

For within the Slayer's story was bound the strength and will to govern each race, or at least kick a little demon booty, and stop an apocalypse like clockwork each May, and go out for mochas. And hey, since we never did find out the plural of apocalypse, I would like to propose apocalypsos. It's got a good beat, and you can dance to it, but I digress (which is damnably hard to do much more of, when you're riffing on Tolkien -- I'm just sayin'...)

But they were all of them deceived, for another character was made. In the land of the writers' room, in the fires of Mutant Enemy, the Dark Lord Whedon forged in secret an extra character, to control all others. No. Not Faith. She excited many of the others, but she didn't actually control them. And no, not Warren, Andrew and Jonathan. They couldn't even control themselves. Clearly, it was Dawn.

And into this character, he poured his cruelty, his malice, and his will to dominate all life. "One shriek to rule them all."

One by one, the free lands of Sunnydale fell to the power of the shriek. But there were some who resisted. A last alliance of Slayer and Scoobies marched against the shriek (well, all right, technically they marched to save her, but I'm on a roll), and on the tower of Mount Shpadoinkle they fought for the freedom of the only not be an only child any more. Or something.

Victory was near. But the power of the shriek could not be undone. It was in this moment, when all hope had faded, that Buffy, sister of the shriek, took her sister's place and dove to her second of two deaths, to date. Don't worry though, she's pretty spry, for a corpse.

Glory, the enemy of the free-peoples of Middle-earth, was defeated. The slaying fell to the Buffybot, who had several chances to destroy evil forever, but couldn't pun or talk trash to save her life. But the hearts of Men are easily corrupted. And the redheaded witch had a will of her own.

She dragged Buffy out of Heaven, and some things that should not have been barfed up were, in fact, barfed up. Namely? Snakes. Plus, that whole thing with killing the baby deer was just ook, don't you think?

History became legend, legend became myth, and for two more seasons, we had a lot of quippy talk, unresolved sexual tension, overly-resolved sexual tension, romance, flayings, shopping, hanging out, saving the world from unspeakable demons -- you know -- girlie stuff.

There were all those potential slayers and the static to noise ratio was a little less ideal than it had been in the early years -- but it was still pretty good TV.

But when the hellmouth in Sunnydale was closed, the Slayer and the plus the potentials, who I guess were actuals, and er...where was I. Anyhow, a whole bunch of stuff about Buffy and co. passed out of all knowledge. Until, when chance came, a promised season 8 in comic book form (coming soon -- but don't press them as to when -- from Dark Horse, and your local Comic Book retailer).

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

I remember when the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie premiered. My husband (who might have just been my boyfriend, then) and I laughed. I remember saying the title really could be something, but it just looked like it came back out wrong. And I remember when the TV series premiered, but we couldn't figure out why they were making a TV series based on a failed movie, and it didn't even have Luke Perry or PeeWee in it, and what was up with that??? Besides, I had a one year old baby. I didn't have the time or interest to watch a 'kids show'.

Fast forward a year and a half to the Fall of '98, and I was on partial bedrest and awaiting the birth of my daughter. When my husband would bathe our son, I'd flop on the couch and watch TV. One night, I was flipping through the channels and decided I had to stop on this Buffy the Vampire Slayer, to see what it was all about. Faster than you can say, "Marlboro Lights 100s," I was hooked. I couldn't hide my addiction forever, so I finally confessed to my husband. I made him agree to watch an episode with me, before he mocked me, and he was a goner, too. They had him at Faith or possibly Cordelia hello.

Because of this show, I went online. I already knew what my board name would be: Closet Buffyholic. Er... I thought I already knew what my board name would be. I went into deep lurk. I delurked from time to time on the threaded board, but couldn't come up with a good name. So I went back into lurk so deep I forgot to lurk, and ended up pregnant again.

I finally came back. First to the threaded board, then to the linear -- where the big kids play. I thank Monique for giving me the courage to do so, just because we had a simple, friendly conversation about her Dawn FAQ.

I had had it up to my ears with the threaded board, largely because of the constant spam and Apollo's utter lack of responsiveness to the threaded posters, but also because of a poster named Geo. Surely I'd be free from that over at the big kids side of the Bronze.

Or not so much.

But I met all you wonderful people whose posts I'd been reading for a couple of years. You were all so smart, and even more importantly, you *got* it. Eventually, I even got to meet some of you in person: Claris, OzLady, Bastion Ridley, Monique, Phantom Denis, Little Sister, Polgara, Megdalen, Leather Jacket, Robyn TSH and I'm sure there are others.

I formed what I expect to be lifetime friendships with people like clarrie, Seska, Amish Boy, Catriona, Cashmere, seniorslayer, Matt the Bruins Fan, white wings and Narrator and more. I'm still in contact with all of them today, and a boatload more too, including nails, Rachie, amorphia, Chrissy, Ripped Toast (angelcakes), Kansas, tiggy, Denise, eirefaerie, faithx5, CarpeDi, Kiba Rika, Little Sister, Claris, paks, amberlynne, Closet B, Vanessa, Suzanne, moppety, Cosmic Bob, *Sunburst*, SarahNicole, tralf, dao jones, elsusio, EverDawn, SquireBoy, Monique, Allyson, Kristen, Polgara, Jipsy Girl, PDR and then some. I'm getting that uncomfortable feeling, where I don't want to turn this into a list, and don't want to leave anyone off the list, so I'm stopping cold.

Anyhow, I cut my teeth on the Bronze, and no other internet community will ever mean to me what the Bronze meant to me and still does. And all of you people taught me so much about being online -- how to conduct myself, and how to reason, and how to think about art (and I feel the need to shout out to Ojagwers, abt, Antipodean, little bam bam and newt here, so I will).

Sometimes it is hard, because other places aren't the Bronze. Other people -- as good and brilliant and wonderful as they are -- don't understand things that to me seem as simple as 1+1=2 -- such as, "If it starts on the board, it stays on the board," and "post not poster," and "For crying outloud, if you're not going to spellcheck, at least give it a skim before you submit it, huh?"

I've said elsewhere, before today, that if I had to choose only one TV series to watch for my entire life, before the Powers that Be folded time, my last words before the clocks turned back would be, "Buffy, the Vampire Slayer."

And I have never before said, but will say now, that if I had to choose only one internet community to become a part of, before the Powers that Be folded time, my last words before the clocks turned back would be, ""

Good thing that's not likely to happen, because that's a fricking mouthful.

And now I'm off for a proper scroll, because I'm seeing people were afraid of me, and it is to laugh.

How I Found The Bronze:Beta: A love story. by eirefaerie

It was the winter of 2001. 2001? Or 2000? ****, my memory's going. No, 2001. Because I only attended one Sour Grapes Party.

Okay, let's continue. It was the Winter of 2001. I would say it was a blustery winter, but I live in Texas, so it was probably a balmy 70 degrees outside. I was residing at the palatial home of my parents for Winter Break. It was December 28 and I, bored because Christmas had passed and New Year's was not quite upon us, decided to spend the day playing on the new computer my parents had purchased for the house. Unlike previous home computers, THIS ONE had the internet. Yes, they were really moving up in the world, I know.

Having already searched for Mexican Goat Porn and the perfect swimsuit to flatter my body shape, I directed my browser to look for Buffy-related goodness. See, I had watched BtVS from the very beginning, but had falled off in season 4, due to time demands from my own collegiate life. But Once More With Feeling had aired a few weeks before, and had brought back my love for the show in full force. Having discovered the Bronze:Beta, I made my very first post, which consisted of this basic sentiment: "Liek, omg buffy is so kewl!!!! HI GUYS I aM erIn!"

I was promptly ignored. So I did what any sensible person would do, and read the FAQ. Scrolled a few boards. Came back and posted a much more grammatically pleasing post: "Oh my god, Buffy is so cool! My name is Erin." And then people talked to me!

I still remember being more terrified of tiggy, confused by phrases like eye=suck and wondering why exactly work or school was "whuping" people. And let's not get me started on the whole italics thing - what the hell was Calvinball and why did there not seem to be any clear-cut rules? And what's a fifth, for chrissakes?

Through the board, I developed friendships with people who I am still close to today - yes, even the frightening tiggy. More, I've met my best friends on this board. I still remember my first Bronzer meet-up - I mentioned that I had a guy in my Civ Lib class who looked like David Boreanaz, and Dachelle wondered why none of the guys in her Civ Lib class ever looked like DB. I replied that she should have gone to University of Texas, to which she replied that, um, she did, and she'd thank me to be a little less snotty in the future. So we made plans to meet up, and one fateful lunch date at TGI Fridays later, we were bonded for life. (Seriously, we are tethered together with chains made out of the hairs delicately plucked from fangirls everywhere. It's really quite touching.)

That successful meet-up made me gung-ho to attend the last ever PBP in 2003. I was excited, but nervous as well. What would it be like to meet all these folks I've talked to nearly every day for a year and a half? And would I even KNOW any of them? My fears were assuaged when I walked into the lobby of the Ren, saw belant stand up and say, "Yo! *****!" And in quick succession, I saw tiggy, Mia, idream, tralf, Kiba Rika, carpeDi and a host of others, contracted Korean Syphillis with Jaan Quidam and the other unfortunates, met halfrek and so many other folks. I went to a sing-a-long and became a Handsome Man. I accosted VIPs. It was good times.

Not to be outdone, the following year I got to meet catmint, faithx5 and darcie, become involved in a dramatic tangle of limbs (and not in the fun, sexy way. Well, a little bit in the fun, sexy way) with *Sunburst* and Ultimate Drew, make illicit suggestions (on accident!) to one of the writers, get wasted on a bottle of Patron (and some champagne. and some martinis. and some whiskey), flash my naughty bits to God and country during a particularly ill-conceived Madonna impression, share a hot tub with swingers and make several comments about other posters' breasteses.

Through the Beta, I've met the five people I consider closest to me. I've learned new things, met great people, and displayed an impressive amount of snark. And I became a Handsome Gay Man, and do you know how many years of therapy and hours of surgery that would have taken IRL? TONS.

So, even though I've been a bad poster for years now, this place will always hold a big place of my heart. The left ventricle. Maybe even part of the aorta, to be honest.

And yet? After all that, I still don't have my VIP colors.

Cashmere, white wings: I see a subject on knitting, well, I thought I'd share that I've been involved in such things lately... got me a hat and a scarf, my sis has a few things too... but my pride are the monkeys. I've crocheted monkeys. Take a look at the one I gave Candy of the Succubus Club. Don't judge the page, I've not touched it in years... oy. But, the monkey... he mocks...

eirefaerie: Of course, of course, I'm afraid the frostbitten toes and knocking knees had distracted me. The temp finally reaches 50 F outside, but that only means the interior heat works less... would my lady like a hot chocolate instead? Yo! Barkeep! Add a little Kahlua too? *g* Thems is mighty tasty... hmm... maybe...

tiggy: I hear ya... moneys would be a good thing... start saving those pennies!!

Kessie: The occasional poke in the ribs would work, but the chocolate....*happy shudder*

Cashmere - Thats a common misconception. We're actually born with several. The exact number isn't known because you can never pin one of us down long enough to count. Also, there made from carbon fibre.

tiggy - I seem to remember a post every 10 seconds or so in conjunction with, oh I don't know, 10 aim chats. Also, I seem to remember a bit of a lock-in after the bronze had officially closed via the ip address. Ah, good times. Its such a shame that place closed, seems like theres never since been a real central get together place for everyone to get together. Just looking back at that one page brought back so many memories. I have no idea what anything in my sig means. And you're just showing off now with your inhumanly long posts.

Seska - I was just reading my sig and, where I was once proud that everything was so personalised, I can now not fathom any of it. I'll see your almost married to a woman ;) (and nf act constantly being pressured to marry) and raise you a "I have a sofa of my very own" and then use a "I have a job that requires me to wear a suit!" to call you!
Are you still in touch with Amorphia? It must be 4 years since I last spoke to her. If you see her, ask if she ever got to marry Darren Gough? And if she did, was he aware of it!
Personally, I'm a fan of the old school sofas. Once you've been intimate with one, its really hard to even think about another one. I'm no sofa-*****!

Jaan Quidam -
Mmmm... I'm drooling a little. It's unpleasant, but I can't help it. Mainly it's over the 1994 Les Paul. I want a Les Paul so much I feel incomplete inside. To be fair though, I have three guitars at the moment, and only have room for one, so it's probably not a good time to go looking in guitar shops. It was only in November I bought my newest toy which I love ver' ver' much. But my next purchase will most likely be a Les Paul of some flavour. Mmm.
I think Sachiel will like her acoustic too.

CYMru Remind me. I no longer remember such things. Why exactly was I "not badgeless ;)"? As for suburbia and tedium - I see your that, and raise you a 'practically married OK, to a Girl, what's your point :D and renting a rather gorgeous flat in north London's incredibly dull middle-class professional wilderness'. If it weren't for a fairly rare long-term illness, I'd be really boring. :D As to amorphia's sofa: pah. That was a long time ago. The two of us then went on to share a flat for two years, where we had an entirely different sofa. :P If she were still here, I'm sure she'd say hi. :)

Kiba Rika Much identification with the 'Buffy just makes you feel better' stuff! I may be mostly housebound, occasionally stuck in a wheelchair and tediously unemployed, but a good dose of The Wish or Bad Girls still cures all ills. :D

nails I had to graduate sometime. I reckon with two degrees, a teaching diploma and a great record of surviving weird stuff, somewhere along the way I got to be a Watcher... Huge thanks for the semi-siggy. I'd forgotten I was Unofficial Bronze Resident English Tutor. At least I was good for something.

PDR! Lookie. I lost the -i-T. :D

Xanderella Did everyone notice Seska is no longer a W-I-T? She's a full-fledged Watcher, now. I wonder if Scotland Yard ever interviewed her in re that big explosion they had a CoW headquarters, a few years back. Hmm... It wasn't me. *shifty look*

Hi tiggy!

Dianne Flowers! Sounds pretty.

Oh, goodness... What WAS ten years ago? I was just finishing up a year in the States - although I do not remember seeing Buffy while over there, it must have been on. It was a long time ago... What I have done in ten years: got a degree and a Master's (I'm sure various Bronzers remember my various stress rants about that); become a teacher; settled down with a wonderful person who makes me very happy; adjusted to a lot of new situations. A lot.

i feel that since your wife was once my twinlet that i need to introduce myself to you. so, hi! nice to meet you!

marrying Tommy Donnelly and listening to the Arcade Fire? i'd say it's pretty normal these days... *smooooooooooch*

that is pretty bizarre. you're both from here, but you didn't meet here. that's just...neat.

but counting is math! i don't know. i'm just not all that creative and i can't imagine how something should look just by looking at skeins and skeins of yarn.

i definitely hope there's another gathering with everyone in the near future. i also hope it's during a time i have the money and time so that i can attend!

i'm pretty much the same. i come by here every once in a while, but i even more rarely post. it's not really the same anymore. everyone has moved on to other places and other points in their lives.

i doubt your ability to smuttify will ever die. you'll be 90 years old making lewd comments to the nurses taking care of you. ;) that last board was a nuthouse, wasn't it?

ha! confusion and awe. those are good ways to describe the bronze of yore.

i haven't been to the 'lage in a long time either. don't even really care for Lost anymore. i just have quite a few friends on my flist who do and are planning on going to the party.

i'm not even a tiggy-esque poster these days!

thanks! that thing was a bit hair-pulling inducing.

Glow Boy
you're welcome. if i get a chance i might throw up some more boards later. i remember you telling me your first post was on the last day. that makes your postiversary easy to remember, huh?

yay!! you got in!! no sign of Mia yet. i might have to call her butt and get her to show. it's good to see you. we need to keep in better contact.

the thing about internet dramas of any kind is that i've seen it all before. so it's hard for me to care. that thing last night seriously had me laughing because of the cliches though!

i thought whores only wore red high heels. now you're saying they don't get colors? my world is askew!

Hello again. Had lunch. Went guitar shopping. And, for the first time since I de-lurked in 1998, I just had a post dingoed.



white wings


LOL Why yes, yes you can. ;)

Mmmm, PVC.


Well hey there, son. ;) Sachiel and I went shopping for an acoustic for her--she wants to learn to play. As it turns out, she's a little person, so she got a smaller-body guitar. I think this is the one she got. And, while she was pondering what she wanted to get, I did a little pondering myself. I played an Alembic Rogue, which is a really great instrument, and then this Spector Euro just for comparison. Much to my surprise, I might have liked the Spector better, even though it was $2000 less. It was incredibly aggressive. I'm thinking of getting it and, well, dude, getting the band back together! Oh, and I recently got myself a 1994 Les Paul--I love it!

Cosmic Bob

Yeah, but I remember it being horrible. I watched the four episodes as they aired, and thought the first two were just one clich after another. But now, I rather like it. It seems the episodes I saw were probably the two least good ones. Also, I might be in your neck of the woods for a few days soon. I'll keep you posted.

Hi there! Thank you! I haven't posted in a while. But I lurk. So I've seen you posting. :)

Please pass the salt.

Hi! Yup, I haven't been here since like last December. Oddly enough, I seem to follow threads more when I'm lurking than posting. But yeah, been a bit busy. Hows about you? I haven't seen you too much lately--things going okay?

ginger: I texted Dachelle last night while she was at Snow Patrol and told her to snog Gary for you. (For you! Somehow, the Gary-kissage would get back to you.

CYMru I thought the Welsh were born without livers. At least they drink like they are.

White Wings A friend of my sister knitted this cap for Liv. cc: newt

Christopher Marlowe My first obsession was Gatchaman (age 8), Star Wars (age 12) Doctor Who (age 15) and Red Dwarf (16)--I was made for obsessive cult tv shows.

I love Veronica Mars but it still doesn't have the same Buffy feel to it. I think I'm starting to get that feeling from Supernatural, though.

As much as I look for her in other shows, I feel that it will be nearly impossible to recreate what she was to so many people.

I didn't start watching Buffy until season 3 in 1999. I was watching Helpless without knowing what I was watching when DH sort of made fun of the title of the show. I felt guilty and didn't try to finish it. Then I saw Earshot and became obsessed with catching up, watching all the reruns, buying the VHS box sets and reading episode recaps online at work until I was all caught up. Of course, I found the threaded bronze about the same time and eventually moved over to the linear board.

Have you gone out to check out Multnomah Falls & get the pancakes at the cafe there?? IF ya make it to Seattle, check out Beth's Cafe for their 6/12 egg omelets & killer hash browns ... Have you and 'stina gotten a settlement out of Ty King for false imprisonment of the Seattle Six???

Gosh ... Has it really been ten years?? I found the Bronze during the tv commercials for BtVS before it even premiered ... I saw that Joss was making a show from the movie & how it was going to be how the movie should've been (before Kuzui screwed it up) ... Thus, the Bronze was here when I turned on the tv for the premiere & I was lurking in the Bronze ...

Not even fully scrolled yet. Who even remembers when it took this much effort to keep up with the board?

Dao Jones!!! I didn't see you the first time I scrolled. I hope you and the little one are doing well.

Xanderella antipodean? God, I haven't seen her around since shortly after the finale. I'd love for her to stop by.

How about miller's angel? Has anyone seen or heard from her recently?

tiggy, *Sunburst*, CarpeDi, Xanderella, faithx5 VM dramas always amuse me. It's like watching a sequel to a movie and realizing somewhere around the middle that it seems familiar to you, but that you're just not as emotionally vested in it as you were the first.

*Denise crawls out of the chocolate gudder, flinging Democratic ooze everywhere as she reaches in her pocket for one of her few remaining packets of Republican Pixie dust. Happy to find it unharmed by the thick chocolate goo, she opens it and throws it toward Adri, enveloping her and everyone else in the vicinity in a sparkly Republican haze.

eirefaerie Whores don't get colors! I keep telling you that!

TMorel I guess we don't need the big pretty words today, when the little ones will do just as well.

white wings I know, I know...I'm horrible. *hangs head in shame* I wish that life would slow down just the teenisest bit so that I could at least pretend to be successfully keeping up with it. How are you doing? How are your parents? *smoooooooch*

Geneveieve's Lucie Aw, thanks! I'm doing okay. How are you and the girls?

CosmicBob It's definitely a very unique fandom.

WOW! Look at all the faces and names! This calls for dusting off my siggy!

How I came to Buffy This seems like a popular thing to do today, but mine is kind of lame. I remember the first episode I saw - School Hard. The reason I saw it? I was bored and flipping through channels. I was instantly hooked. I watched faithfully after that, but was still devoted to my other fandom internet wise. But ever so slowly I started looking for Buffy related places. Eventually, I found the Beta, and have been here since. I have many fond memories of long posts to White Wings and Ojagwers. I'm not nearly so much tiggy-esce poster anymore, but I still love everyone!

Mr. Whyt - You think?

Fantasma - Yes, it does take some time. And I should think about doing something productive, too.

newt- Very, very impressive. Did I see that you got Knitter's Elbow? Remember to stretch periodically.

I know what you mean about shows not creating the obsession. I watch Bones, and it can be discussed and I do enjoy the scenery and humor, but its not quite the same.

I havent been to Knitter's Review for a while. I'm not exactly sure what Ive been doing. Latest project is scanning in old old family photos and seeing if I can remove the blemishes. My mother's memory is failing, and photos and digital frames and stuff give her quite bit of pleasure. I got Scanner's Shoulder from repetitive motion with that.

Which reminds me, I need to start on a birthday cake for her.

Selenay stumbles back from not being in the Bronze, to reappear in the Bronze for five minutes and wave at people. Tiredly. Thinking that it might be nice, for nostalgia's sake, to maybe stumble back tomorrow, too.

Beldin Hi! Another person I recognise!

Catriona *tacklehugs* Woo you! And look at you, all actory and on stage-ness *g* I well remember discussing the cuteness of Reepecheek (my spelling is totally off tonight) with you :-) How is it that so much time has passed? Right, I'm an absentee Sel. Bad Sel.

PDR Hail the Harem leader!

notsoShyGirl Gosh, darn, can't imagine where I recognise you from :-)

I found Buffy while I was making my first stab at the university thing - it was late season 2 in the USA. I'd just got Internet in my dorm room and it was the first time I'd really been able to play around with this shiny new concept. So I searched for Buffy sites, naturally. And found the official site first (such a newbie to the entire Internet thing) with this weird thing called "The Bronze". Lurked for about two days, started posting on day three and that was my first introduction to the fandom concept. I have a lot of good memories from The Bronze - staying up super-late to attend the Prom in a rather fetching tuxedo, Calvin and Hobbs-ball, dropped tags, bartenders, question of the day...wait, why did I leave?

It was more of a drift - life got busy, my on-line time got restricted and I found shiny new obsessions. Now I mostly hang around in LJ land (not that LJ, the other one) and in other fandoms.

This place is rather nice and familiar stuff. And I see that it's being kept up nicely, too. Hmmmm....

Selenay wanders into the night, tripping occasionally on tables that have been moved, humming something that sounds rather like 'Wild Horses', but with a few unusual notes added.

And I just got hit by the spam-filter fairies.

Selenay pulls out IT Bod tools, fiddles around a bit, and hopefully has a working post.

It worked!

the first season of Veronica Mars, anyway. But I haven't had the urge/need to discuss the same way I
did with Buffy. Was it the show, or do you only have that kind of love once? I do love my
shirtless Tom Welling, though, even if it does make me a pervy old lady.

white wings: Well I waste spend a fair amount of time at Knitters Review.
But mostly I waste spend time on knitting blogs. Or playing Spades online, badly. *g*
You can see my knitting here.
I knew I was addicted when someone told me they were pregnant and my first reaction was
"someone to knit for!"


Mrs. Beasley: How does LJ feel about you practicing on him? Oh, that LJ. :)


It's a good thing the Beta doesn't show how MANY times I have to edit a post to get it right ... or how
many times I forget to put in my password when I do.

It's not like I insisted he get rid of them all, I did let him choose what he wanted to keep. Only now have I been told that his SO list was backed up on one of the CDs that got thrown out. It's all a bit weird because by the time I met him he was no longer a Bronzer, and I don't think we'd ever posted at the same time. So to be sitting here in the same house posting on the same board to completely different groups of people is quite odd.

Well, hello! i baked a cake! for entirely different reasons, but let's pretend it was a Buffy Anniversary Cake. I burnt it and am now feeling angsty, which seems strangely appropriate for the emotional trauma that Joss regularly visits upon us.

I have not been watching Buffy today. Instead i have been sampling new US tv that I might possibly become obsessed with- The Black Donnellys. I find myself unconvinced, yet with a deep urge to marry Tommy Donnelly, and listen to Arcade Fire. Is this usual?

It's lovely to see familar names on here. I've made tremendous friends through this board, which was my first internet home.

I seem to have totally lost my shoutout list. Damm this computer and its far too frequent crashes. off the top of my head SO's to tiggy, Amarra, eirefaerie, dachelle, catmint, roja, DeAn, RomanAround, bossythecow, thestage, shadowquest, oldmanfan, halfrek, the partyman, slayerdaddy, shebit and a bunch of other people whose posting names i can't now remember. Hurrah for Buffy! And the Pastintry!

Closet Buffyholic Hey there YOU. Glad to see you. Though I wouldn't mention The Wheel to KAM. It's gone. Gone forever. (though he has pieces of it, and a box of their Hashed Browns on his shelf at home). It was a sad day...and a day I missed, though I wanted to get over there for one last meal.

I'm sorta lurking, theoretically working, and feeling nostalgic. I've put on "Welcome to Hellmouth," and it's feeling fresh and new, despite the hundreds of dozens of times I've seen it.

I'm hoping to celebrate more by playing Buffy trivia tonight.

Just a SO to friends I've not seen in ages, that I've seen skirting past in the last few boards, OzLady, whitewings, Xanderella... RSOs to Jaan Quidam and Ojagwers, And so many other familiar names that I recognize, but, never really posted much with. The reunion idea was a great one.

I sorta hang out mostly in LJ land these days, but, have been so busy that I'm bad about posting there, too. but, I *always* read it.

Greetings to Kessie, Princess of Darkness, tiggy, notsoShyGirl

Oh, and, while I'm at it, have you people gotten a copy of The Bronzer Cookbook yet? It's very pretty....

{aka buffyrat)

I'm trying to remember how I came to The Bronze. I remember discovering the WB Bronze but was mystified by the names and shoutout lists, so I lurked for a while. I guess this must have been during season 5? Then when the UPN version opened shop I started posting. I remember Dogmeat as sort of a "mentor", and I think MrHoltz started posting about the same time. I haven't seen him post for a very long while. And there was a poster who went by the name roja who also seems to have disappeared. MrHoltz mentioned the Bronze Beta at the UPN site shortly before it evaporated, and the Bronze Beta became sort of a life raft after the UPN Bronze went under. I think whitewings was the first person who responded to me here. Maybe it was something about Spike?*g*

howdy Bronzers, those of Bronze!

Beldin I have taken my ethics exam, hopefully I have ethics and thus may be licensed. Again. X2. I am mostly pleased because this means I am one up on 'stina and thus can give her a hard time about only taking TWO measly bar exams. Wimp. of course I am kidding. but not about the giving her a hard time part. that's why she lurves me!. Oh, and yes, it did require some studying, oddly enough. We lawyers don't have ethics naturally, you know. :)

willa willa willa willa! I am SO coming down there for spa and puppies. I am now officially done with everything, and am playing the waiting game until mid-April to find out if I passed it all.

MCat!! MCAT MCAT MCAT! I miss you. That is all.

pumpkin how's the old stomping grounds? I hear you got whalloped with snow in the last couple weeks.

RTBS Howdy, sir! I was thinking about you lately.

Matt the Bruins Fan A name from the past! hello!

4paws howdy there birthday-share person! this year I turn *cough* 40 *cough* on our mutual birthday. I get to spend it at my company headquarters, because I'll be stuck in a meeting with 35 of my fellow lawyers and the big cheeses of the company. I think I'm going to insist on cake. What? I'm sure they'd not think that was impertinent or anything. Also, cake! And you know what? I've only been here since November and already my new coworkers know me so well they bought me snowman Peeps for Christmas.

Xanderella hello stranger! (well, who am I kidding, I see you elsewhere, but good to see you here too!)

uh, there were more, but I am old and I forget easily. Need to take the Ginko.

So, me. I moved to Oregon. I am living on a big honkin' hilltop. It is unfreakin'believably beautiful here. I look out my back deck and see the majestic peak of Mt. Hood when it's not all cloudy because of the rian, that is. The monster dog is still with me, and still being a montster dog. I miss all my old Bronzer pals and conversational companions. I am still addicted to cheesy teen shows with hot boys ala the WB era. I am going to go to the Special Hell, aren't I?

I cheered and jumped up and down when ASH was on Dr. Who this season. He was so deliciously evil. I thought "kimP and I gave that man a hard hat covered in macaroni." Yes, I know, it's not the kind of thing that comes up in conversation.

Allyson wrote a book. It comes out soon. Look it up.

DarkLady is screening her documentary on all things Bronze communityish in LA tonight. Wish her luck!

-mere- is writing for Rome. I knew that girl was going places.

I bet KAM still visits The Wheel (and I have to admit, I've still to find that level of quality hashed browns anywhere else), and still gives a hearty handshake.

I still see willa and SarahNicole (not nearly enough!), and my brother is back in Texas and life is good, even if I just broke down and bought a crackberry.

that's about all the news that's fit to print. If Muffy comes by, tell her I said howdy!

I don't like getting all sappy nostalgic, because that chapter of life is over, really, but, I have to say the Bronze had a huge impact on my life, for which I will always be grateful. I hope you all had the same experience.


It of course wouldn't be me if I didn't drop an enormous tag and blind everyone in the process. After all, my native american name is "She Who Drops Tags In Bronze".

i dug up my bronze discs and uploaded the last day of the bronze here. it was a crazy day.

hahahaha!!! you're briasoleil? color me clueless!! i'm tiggz in case you hadn't figured it out. *d'oh!*

i'm getting in the spirit by watching Surprise. i was going to start with the very first ep i saw, but i thought i'd build up to the heartache that is Becoming Part II. after i see Becoming Part II i think i'm going to jump to some good Faith filled eps from season 3.

*waves to drunkenfairy, white wings, tiggy, Xanderella, faithx5, Kessie, Princess of Darkness (yes I know what that means! How's it going?? *g*), Glow Boy (thanks for the tip, hun) and QuaintLittleShopGirl

Here's my "How I became a Bronzer" story, adapted from my LJ post.
I made a point of watching 'Welcome to the Hellmouth' when it first aired here in the UK, because I'd enjoyed the movie (for all its cheesiness etc) and wondered how they'd spin that out into a TV series. I was hooked before the first advert break, mostly by the dialogue but also because the characters were quirky and cute. Eye candy was not overlooked, either *g*
For me, the launch of Buffy onto the TV networks coincided with my first forays onto the net, and after watching the first episode I began to correspond with fans all around the world. I found The Bronze posting board (WB) and several other forums, and I made online friends in 1998/99 who have become firm and very dear RL friends, and will remain so long after our beloved fandom has faded from memory (although I doubt that that will ever happen).
Over the years, my fandom has grown to include 'Angel' and 'Firefly' and 'Serenity' and my involvement with the fandom family has blossomed. I've been to countless conventions. a PBP (2002), and a Flanvention Browncoats Bash, and I've spent entire weekends with hundreds of strangers who were not strangers simply because we shared a deep passion for these shows.
I've met most of the actors and some of the writers and several of the behind-the-scenes people and many of the novellists ... and even god Joss himself twice. I've met fellow fans of all ages, from all corners of the world, from all walks of life. Without exception, every person I've met - online or offline - as a result of my love for this show, has been a gift to my life. That includes friends on LJ who don't share my love for these shows, because if it wasn't for Buffy I wouldn't even have a Live Journal account!
So today, ten years on, I raise my glass and give thanks to Joss Whedon for bringing Buffy the Vampire Slayer into my life.

My Live Journal is friends only, but please comment to be added :)

Beldin: School Runion is great. "Every man's nightmare, the current missus meets the ex." And seeing Sarah Jane Smith was wonderful. ASH did a great job. If Joss ever wanted to to the musical version of Silence of The Lambs...

K9, well, never my fav.

Haven't seen "Interstate 60", but I did watch "Ice Princess", for ah Chris Beck's score (yeah, that's the ticket).

Ah, when did I first discover the Bronze board? I'm not sure on dates (as you get older they do tend to run together), but I remember it being around the time some idiot thought it would be funny to post that Alyson Hannigan died in a car accident. Did my first real mocking post attacking that jerk. Yeah, and near that time was the start of the color wars, when Joss made jokes about the sacred ~ . Or maybe further apart, things do tend to blend.

Of course I remember the first attempt to replace the board. It had a 250 character limit on a post or the board looped into a time warp thang. Started singing "Let's Do The Time Warp Again!"

Ah, good time.

Anyhow, will try to drop by later, but if not, it's been great talking to some people I haven't heard from in years. As always, never take anything I post too seriously, unless, of course, you should.

Have a great time one and all. Great reunion. Best of luck to all the folks who made BtVS as great as it was.

dogtrot/buffyrat - hey!

newt - How's your knitting going? Mine plods along. I have several more scarves from Doctor's offices, though. What's your favorite knitting board?

OMG. I just saw a Weetabix commercial. I suppose it could have been Vegemite. *shudder*

Ten years ago I taped a new show that would air while I was out visiting my horse. I had little hope for something named Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but I was desperate, because the TV landscape that season was a dreary wasteland.

I was intrigued. I saw Giles, and had a feeling that he would lend some class to the show. I'd be lying if I said I didn't become a bit more alert when a mysterious stranger was kicked head over heels in an alley, but I honestly think that it was the interaction of Buffy and Giles that had me hooked in those early days.

When laid up with a snakebite in the summer after S3, I hunted for news of the spin-off, spoilers, anything. I found posting boards, but couldn't post from the state computer. I lurked, and yearned to be able to join in the fun. It was a window on a wider world. At the turn of the century I had my own computer and ISP, and made my first post on New Year's Day, and never looked back.

p.s. Denise - Get thee to the druggist and purchase the good stuff, as much as you are allowed. Every one I've visited shakes his/her head sadly at the ineffectiveness of the new stuff.

So's and RS0's to helgyn, Xanderella, tiggy, Amarra, newt, Algerina, Stake - I'd give anything for my old SO list and siggy, but they are sadly lost.

Stake - You are welcome for the email. There was no way I wasn't passing the message on to any Bronzers I had in my email list. Your career sounds amazing congratulations on your accomplishments.

Algerina - Thank you so much for the email. It was truly appreciated. I try to come by the Beta from time to time.

10 years ago - A college freshman and her roommates watched the premiere of Buffy. It was a show my roommates and I enjoyed together, my sister and I enjoyed to watch, and later that my boyfriend (now husband of 7 years) and I watched together. I didn't discover the Bronze until March 2000. It was such a wonderful place to me. A place to discuss ideas about the show and real life with intelligent, well spoken individuals who shared a love of a great show. I never was able to attend any real life gatherings, but the Bronze and later the Beta were places that I felt at home. I miss the thrill of checking the boards the day after a new episode to see what KAM thought of the latest show, who's ideas I agreed or disagreed with, what the deadguy QOD would be, and who's Yay day or birthday it happened to be.

10yrs ago... {wibbly dream like sequence}
The family was still struggling to cope with the death of my father several years previous. To try and help we'd taken a family vacation to the US - which was his favourite destination.
One evening after a tiring day at the theme parks I stuck the TV on and caught the last 30mins of this strange show that had premiered that night.
When we got back to England I looked up what the show was, and stumbled across some strange website.
Since then, I've stumbled across some strange people too...

None more stranger than at that first UKPBfP
Cobby running around in her Darla outfit (but to be fair, she wears those short skirts so often it's not as if it was anything special)
DingoBaby and her collection of Bobs
Jennie106 - damn, I disliked her all weekend. If anyone had said that she'd end up one of the most important people in my life I'd have laughed in your face.
Shiraz & redruM ahhhh now you two I never saw coming - am so happy how well it's turned out for you.

MAPB - officially the strangest man I'd ever met!
PDR - the most polite drunk I've ever known "I'm frightfully sorry Tony, I'm afraid I might soon vomit, would you mind if I left and went back to my hotel room"

Just had a bit of a scroll... lots of familiar names. Everyone seems to be doing a little "how I found the bronze thing" so heres mine...

I joined the bronze about a week or two before it shut and the Bronze:Beta started which was.... I think sometime in 2000? Feel free to correct me on that though... I posted for around 3 years or something like that, but ended up drifting away... I found this place through my love of Buffy, my utter boredom at work and my totally unworking yet for some reason I stayed in relationship with my ex... Made some good friends, quite a few I'm still keeping in touch with through LJ. Lost touch with a few particularly RomanAround who I used to chat with regularly. Even went to LA in 2002 for the PBP which was a ball!

So thanks to everyone who I've posted with over the years, you kept me going in a bumpy part of my life. Anyone who wants to find me on LJ i'm there as icedbun. I'm just sorry I don't have my SO list it went a very long time ago at my old boring job...

Tiggy yup definitely been a really long time. Can't remember how long its been since I was last here... maybe 3 years ago?

Hi everyone! It's been forever since I showed up in these parts,but Xanderella mentioned the 10th anniversary reunion today and I thought I'd drop in to wish everyone well.

I remember back in May 1997 I was laid up at home with a pesky summer flu, and decided (having previously seen the movie) that Buffy the Vampire Slayer would be just the sort of no-brainer cheesefest that I would enjoy whiling time away with.

And then 3 minutes into the teaser instead of being the obvious slutty schoolgirl victim that gets eaten first by the monster, Darla whipped around to reveal her game face. And Joss had me forever.

white wings leaps over obstacles to grab the Purple Unmentionables by their ... to grab the Purple Unmentionables. She hasn't the heart to stuff them in a drawer, so she ties them to the arch in the corner to watch the action, just as they were once draped over an arch at a certain Pre-Party. Well, the set-up for the Pre-Party.

tiggy - *narrowed eyes* WRONG! The BBS lives.

seniorslayer - *waves*

Xanderella - *smoooch* I'm here, late as usual. You should take up knitting. Its calming and relaxing. I have a co-worker who started about three years ago and has now far surpassed me in adventurous projects. You can do it!

Good, VT needs to show, just for plastered ham sake. :)

It would blow up too much dust and scare the cows. :o) Give your Better half my best. Glad fatherhood is keeping you busy. Oh, and Thunderbird, gives me a headache just thinking about it. LOL Ah, you and Beldin remember Boones Farm "wine" don't you?

Hello there.

Tiggy : I was always the most well behaved of all the Kanies! :-p and what a reward! because you know it's so rare for me to get the opportunity to perve over footballers!

I thought I'd take a quick little scroll ... ha ha ha ha! That's what I remember from the Old Bronze, by
the time I got through scrolling I never had time to post.

Catriona: How can you still be young and I'm just older? Let us know when you've cured
cancer so we can all beam with pride. What part are you playing in Oklahoma? And with what sort of

tiggy, Dianne: All right, you are piquing my interest in the fingerless gloves. I wonder if you
can knit wearing them ...

Xanderella: "Knitting actually is quite hip right now." Pshaw, woman, do you think
you have to tell me that? Would white wings and Mrs. Beasley and I do anything
that wasn't hip? Don't answer that. Be nice to me and I'll show you my knitting

white wings!!!

Cashmere: At least Dean's not driving? Oh, you mean the newtlet. I'll say.
He's suddenly into big boy things, like all the arcane details of Star Wars. (I don't get it, I
say. How can someone be so obsessive about a movie ... oh. :)

CarpeDi: Congratulations on your impending aunthood! And an extra *smooch* just

Thoin The contact info I have for Joss is, I believe, out of date. So I didn't have a way to let him know about the whole thing directly. (I considered it but as I said - contact info, out of date.) DaddyCatALSO did make a comment in the 10th Anniversary thread at Whedonesque about the event. There's no way of knowing if Joss saw it, sadly.

And back again. =)

So a big SO to all the Bronzers in the hizzah. I'm going to be hanging around while I work on my Labour Studies, Management and Theories of Communication papers. Lets cover where I'm at right now, a little bio if you will.

I turn 26 in July. I just signed the lease for my first apartment. I'm in my second year of university in Communications, focusing in on the digital stream. Seems I'm a natural with Computer Mediated Communication. ;-p I still work at the bookstore where I'm the Magazine Department Lead. Umm...can't think of anything else really important so I'll leave it at that.

I haven't said this in so long...

it's been a long time since i could say this and since Narrator hasn't showed yet, i'm going to use it on you first. WRONG! DEAD! neener...

i don't have a husband or kids making me crazy today, but i still can't manage even that much eloquence. so i'm just going to say, "What Denise said". hey, we don't share a brain for nothin'! *smooooooooooooch*

you'll almost be there around the same time as the Lost party. i'll be in San Fran right after everyone there is on their way home. what kind of fun stuff do you have planned?

Genevieve's Lucie
absolutely! that boy is hella fine. television crushes aren't just for young'uns anymore. not in this day and age! i think it keeps us young. ;)

congrats on the marriage!! sorry to hear about your father. the thought of losing either of my parents terrifies me. i remember my first day on the bronze too. of course, it helps that i actually have a disc with those boards on it. actually, my six year postiversary is coming up on march 22nd. i can't believe it's been that long and it seems like yesterday all at the same time.

p.s. i'm tiggz on lj if you wanna add me.

hey! i was just looking at your siggy and remembering how i helped you fix it so your fishy would work on this board.

oddly comforting, huh? things have changed so much and yet...not at all.

Miss Tartie
well look at that! i was just talking about the pervy Kanies and in you pop! coincidence? i think not!

congratulations and happy anniversary a couple of months early!! is he a Buffy lover? i'm doing alright. not a whole lot going on with me either. working, watching entirely too much tv and trying to buy myself a house.

The Partyman
i always had my suspicions about you and your late nights. ;) *smoooooooooch* i'm glad you stopped in at any rate. i don't see nearly enough of you these days.

Miss Tartie2
a reward? sure! you get to look at pervy pictures of the footballer of your choice for the rest of the evening! ;)

squeeeee!!! that is so awesome!! the car is a character all on its own. what a shame that you didn't have a camera... :(

your comment to nails about being the most changed just made me laugh for a good solid minute. YOU WIN!!

this place is moving fast like the old days! i'm lovin' it! what kind of stuff did you make the poor guy get rid of? how much room could a SO list take up? ;)

The Mayoress
good god it's good to have everyone in the same place again! *smoooooooooooch*

Hi all! I only posted on the Beta regularly for six months or so, but it drastically changed my life, as did Buffy (of course!).

I was going to go to that screening today, but evil cold has me bedded. Ick.

I so wish I had my SO list.

Hi to CarpeDi, tiggy, faithx5, tralfamadore, Amarra and others that I'm forgetting!

O.k., since Kiba Rika is here, I have to ask...did anybody think to let Joss know we were having this little get-together?

I know he seems to have abandoned us (I have two Fifths who are certain of it), but I think he'd LIKE to know this was going on...and to show up and join us for at least one drive-by post!

Somebody who has access might want to give the man a head's up (if they haven't already...there is the possibility that little Mr. Whyte and little Mr. Kidd might be right, but I'd hate to believe that...)

And my firstest daughterlet was here and I missed her!!! AGAIN!!! Whimper...

ETA: O.k., tell me this isn't the best present the Beta ever gave me!

And now, it MUST be said...


I shall name this little sweetheart Dec, in honor of a full decade of Buffy-goodness.

Thoin scoops up little Dec and gives him a chocolate lollipop, which he promptly whacks her over the head with before settling down in her lap to finish...

tiggy: Sorry! I missed your post on the last page - went out of the room for a couple of minutes and there was a new page and I kinda forgot how fast this place used to move! As my husband pointed out to me that when we were moving house I forced him to get rid of a load of his old stuff, including the CD he'd saved his own SO list on, I guess it's only fair that I don't have one now either. I found a backed up copy on CD, but the file seems to have become corrupt :(

janni: Bob! I knew I'd forgotten one of my many names. I think DeAn is responsible for that one. I'm pretty good. Work is wearing me down, and I'm looking for a new job, but I've been married almost 7 months and we're living in a lovely little house, and my sister is visiting this weekend so mostly life is good right now.

TMorel: Me, me! I know who I am!

Beldin: Hi. I appreciate you making the effort to say hello to me, it makes scrolling a whole lot less depressing when the odd person actually says my name ;o)

Maverick -- I watched Welcome to the Hellmouth the first night it was on and didn't miss an episode thereafter. Wandered into The Bronze after B2, and have depended upon the kindness of Bronzers to help me through my roughest times.

Ten years ago... hmm, let's start with the fact that I like bad movies... and the BtVS movie was wonderfully bad. I'd heard there was going to be a TV show, so I tuned in expecting a trainwreck. Sometime before the hour was over, I was saying to myself "damn, this is GOOD!" I was later than many in discovering The Bronze, but it's been a wonderful experience.

Geez, it took me an hour to scroll from my morning post. It's great to see everyone who stopped in.

Beldin - Thunderbird doesn't go in a computer! Thunderbird goes in the computer USER.

Horizon - Howdy!

Corvus - I'm stuck in a mini-van these days. Though I do hold out hope for one of these. ;)

It wouldn't be a Laurence post without stupid links...
