I Hate When My Job Interfers with My Buffy Epiphanies

I'm watching Something Blue this morning. OK ,watching may be an over statement. More like having it on in the background while getting ready for work stopping to watch when Spike and Buffy are making out. Anyway, suddenly it hit me how really important this episode is in the Buffyverse. Underlying the forshadowing of Spuffy and the humor is a lot of serious issues that would come to plague the Scoobies (and Spike) throughout the rest of season 4 and again in season 6.

But, can I dig deeper now and share my thoughts? Noooooo. Because I'm a work and I don't have my DVD to reference and I should be working instead of thinking about all this. It's all very frutsrating. :(

Anyay, on a happier note, please see my pretty new icon courtesy of jonesiexxx. I think this is the first non BtVS one I've had up. See, I do have other interests people. :p

My bitch wants to say hello to your bitch.

P.S. I have spend the better part of my working day exchanging e-mails with my ex-boss about the buffy-finale ...
I spent the better part of last Friday in a flurry of e-mail exchanges regarding Buffy, Spike, and what may happen on Angel. Much more interesting than actually working. Blegh.

Looking at our bitches, I'm trying to figure out which is more threatening. ;-)
Excellent icon! Jonesie is becoming quite the icon bitch. Which is, like, bitchin'!
Oooh. Me too, me too. Look at my icon. Isn't it pretty? *channels Giles*

I hate work interfering with my playtime. Grrr. But then the paycheck will make me content yet again.

Dude, I am off again today. They're playing it by the seat of their pants, but I'm annoyed at this work-a-day, off-a-day business.

*looks at icon again and gets over annoyance*

Something Blue has all sorts of delicious foreshadowing about Willow and her use of magic.

Work should never be allowed to interfere with Buffy thoughts. There oughtta be a law.

Also, your icon is yummy.

Exactly. And I have thought about that before. I guess what really got me to thinking about SB was all the recent discussion about Seeing Red and, specifically, the AR. Not that there is anything in SB to forshadow *that*. I just think all the new takes I've been privy to in regards to the AR have made me start looking at any and all of Buffy with a new eye. Then again, I might just end up being redundant. :p
Something Blue also gives some insight about Buffy's idea of love...true passion goes with pain and anger. She's unsure about her relationship with Riley because he *doesn't* make her feel miserable.

Although it's under a spell, she and Spike make out with great passion, while at the same time, Buffy admits she doesn't like him and they weren't really getting along. Expand that to the nth degree, and you've pretty much got S6.

I would have loved to have heard Spike's real reaction to the activities in SB. He doesn't look that horrified to me when the spell first goes off, and seems to take his cue from Buffy. Later, he's more amused than anything, regarding it as more fodder for teasing.

I'm paraphrasing here but I do recall something along the lines of 'I don't really like him...but I love him'. She only grudgingly admited she liked him "sometimes" in DT. And, even I won't say she was in love with him in season 6, but there were definite feelings for him she just wasn't willing or able to admit too. Buffy just isn't the type to sleep with someone she doesn't care about.
We all know what a sheep I am. So, first: agreed. Work interfering with Buffy? Sinful. In the bad way.

Second: glad you like the ike. :hugs asta:
