My Friend Buffy


Thanks to everyone for your guesses about what I'm holding in the picture. You guys guessed hatchet, axe, guitar-hero instrument, rodent killer, necessary homeschooling tool (my favorite)... and give yourselves a big pat on the back if you guessed it was a Buffy prop. Mama Papaya is the only one who actually named the thing (scythe). She shows real potential. (get it? probably not) Yes, yes... back to the slayer scythe. While it looks evil, it most certainly is not. For in Buffy-land, this weapon helped defeat all the baddies and saved the world. So, it's a very good thing and not at all something to be worried about. Especially since I didn't buy it. It was a gift. You definitely can't judge me for something that was given to me as a gift, right?

Now... say... I got a life size Buffy stand-up, and put it in the living room, you might have reason for concern.

And if I moved that life size Buffy stand-up to different locations around the room and took pictures with my computer cam, I could see how one might worry.

And if I invited life size Buffy stand-up to rest on my chaise, I could see a reason for alarm.

But don't worry. I'd probably never be so crazy as to get a life size Buffy stand-up. And if I did, I'd absolutely NEVER let her sit at my desk in front of my computer.


And I'd never ever come up with a nickname for her like "CB" (Cardboard Buffy). And I'd never ever dream of taking CB on vacation with us so that I could take pictures of her in front of landmarks. Because I'm not crazy. I know crazy, and that's a line I'd never, ever cross.

By the way... when they say "life size" do they mean Amazon size? Because I'm pretty sure Buffy isn't supposed to be 6 feet tall. Just saying.

  1. AARRGGHH! I can't believe I didn't use the right name for the scythe. Of course, I still harbor ill will towards Joss Whedon about Anya, so I blocked a lot of that episode out.

  3. She. Killed. Vampires! Very easily one of them could have been a Cullen. How can you hold a Vampire Slayer tool while wearing Twilight?

    You are commanded to go watch Twilight 6 times in 12 hours and then rip CB to pieces and burn the parts!

  4. Love your purple house!! Just stopping by for a little visit. I'll have to send my friend over, she loves Twilight right now. Have you heard "Edwards" songs? Of course you have. I was impressed.

  5. I really think that you need to add a life size Edward to your collection. And then work on protecting him from Buffy.

  6. Oh, I love that you have a CB! LOL! Now you need a CE (Cardboard Edward). They could hang out together and have capers!

    Also, I love your purple chair!!!

  16. NO way! How the heck did you get a Big Buffy and the scythe? Hold on, just hold on...AND you have a cool Twilight shirt on? How did you hit the jackpot? I'm so jealous, and bitter-- I'm going to give you an award just for that. Yep, I'm working the post right now. It will be up this afternoon. BAHAHAHAhAHAHa

  17. I feel so bad for CB. Imagine living your life without bending. It would suck. And looking that good all the time, not the life for me.

    Nosmallfeat is right, there's something not right about this whole scenario.

  18. Hey yeah, nosmallfeat and imbeingheldhostage are right...
    You totally crack me up. And is that a purple chair you have? I totally understand, since my color is red and I so want a big, comfy red chair.
    You and all your movie paraphernalia, I love it!!

  19. I'm going to concur with Kat.

    Buffy needs an Edward. Those they still have at my Hot Topics. I'm not sure how much shipping would be from IA to CA though!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ummm, nope. Crazy isn't the word. Certifiable does have a certain ring to it though... Just sayin' ;)

  21. Ah-HA! I knew it!

    I can spot a Scooby from a mile away!

  22. hey, where's the picture of you and CB together? And, why can't she be 6 feet tall?!??! There are a few of us amazons out there you know. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  23. No, I wouldn't call you crazy... as long as CB doesn't make her way into your master bedroom, that is...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh Man...I was going to say it was from Buffy! I loved her BUT I'm a bit concerned about the vacation thing...please take great pictures though! I think you should also show Buffy with the family at dinner. LOL

  25. I want a Cardboard Spike .. and I wouldn't call him CS, I'd call him Boyfriend.

    CB could come in handy during my workouts .. or during the time of day when I'm supposed to be working out and am instead sitting here, eating chocolate.
    Body envy = motivation =-)
