I found a letter I wrote to myself in 1984. It was written in big, loopy letters. I am proud to say that there were no dots above i's shaped like hearts. I have my pride.

1. I wanted to attend Yale or BYU. (I ended up at U of Utah, one of the best schools for Biology in the nation, go Utes!)
2. I wanted to study: Speech (I wasn't born a mute, regardless of what this implies), Psyciatry (sic), or Viola (sigh. See what happens when you come from a long line of instrument makers? I haven't played the "fiddle" in 15 years.)
3. I wanted to live in "Hanalooloo, Hawaii, US of A" (and take a spelling course, no doubt)
4. I left this following question blank: "Some of the qualities I want my husband to have are:"
5. Courses I am interested in taking: Modeling, Art, Color Analysis (?? the fuck??), Music
6. The car I am most in love with: Oldsmobile. (I never shot for the stars, just the street lamps)
7. My stalker days began early. I indicated the person I most admired (a teacher) and wrote down her PHONE NUMBER.
8. I added my own question: I most want to marry Chad Lowe, Chris Condiff, of Jeff Stevens.

I had difficulty with choices, obviously. BTW: Jeff Stevens was a big perv who snuck into a broom closet to watch me make out with my boyfriend at a graduation party.

More lists! In honor of dovil spreading the list of Jossverse love, I thought I'd add to the pile with

1. The music playing and Giles' face when he climbs the stairs and finds Jenny Calendar.
2. "Cops Suck" on Lindsay's truck when he leaves. Hee!!
3. The Numfar "Dance of Joy."
4. When Angel shoves everything off the table in order to shag Buffy senseless. Oh, and ramming into the fridge, too.
5. Buffybot straddling Spike in the cemetary, also the looks on Anya and Xander's face when they catch the "show."
6. The homage to The Graduate with the shot through Anya's legs and Xander squeezing the juice box.
7. How teeny Buffy looks on her bed sitting across from Riley at the end of Hush
8. Buffy's eyes narrowing when she see the eggs are labeled. Bad roomates suck!!
9. The whole slow bang under the black skirt on the catwalk at the Bronze. Guh.
10. Every moment of the Trio. Especially the flashbacks from Andrew with them leaping about and singing.
11. Harmony's sad little day at work from her POV.
12. Wes' ecstatic questioning of the origin of the Mini-Reuben.
13. Wes popping a cap in the knee of the employee who dared to question why they were working on the "Burkle case."
14. Gunn fight scenes. He is just PURDY.
15. Faith busting out of jail.
16. Faith thinking her "talents" were insulted by Principal Wood.
17. *snerk* The name Principal Wood. I'm mature like that.
18. The Numfar Dance of Shame.
19. Willow dressing up like Joan of Arc, Xander asking OZ what he is, and him showing the "Hello, My Name is GOD" sticker. Best. Costume. Ever.
20. Joyce saying something was so "Juice Newton."

Let me have 'em! I want you flames your picks, and don't forget to insult my stupid 12 year old self! If I dare, I may read the journal that accompanied this "time capsule." *shudder*

Oh yes. I knew what I wanted at 12. A hot Oldsmobile, a perverted husband (or a husband from a has-been 80s show), and to study "Psyciatry" while living in Hanalooloo. Hee!

Let me do your colors for you and let you know if you are a "SPring" or an "Autumn." That'll be a million gajillion dollars.

Very interesting choice! I have so much moments of love in the Joosverse that I can't write them . A lot are in Btvs season 5 ..

And your letter ? Too cute for words !

I wrote a journal when I was thirteen , and kept on writing until I reached eighteen . I HAVE to go and read it right now!
Sep. 28th, 2004 09:18 am (UTC)
Oh god, be strong. The girl you were at 13 is sooo different from the person you are now. I am cringing while reading it. So boy crazy. I swear, I was in love every week.

Tell me what you find!!!

"Hanalooloo, Hawaii, US of A"

dude, that is the best misspelling ever. that whole list was great. isn't youth embarrassing? i would love to go back and live it all again. without the whole "i'm so depressed/want to die, puberty sucks" thing that goes with the age.
Sep. 28th, 2004 10:15 am (UTC)
Tee hee! The funny thing was, in 7th grade I was a State Champion in the National Spelling Bee. WTF?

I always imagine going back in time knowing the "skillz" I have now and seducing the unrequited loves of my past. Oh, Craig. I should never have broken up with you because of my fear of sex. *sigh*
Sep. 28th, 2004 11:26 am (UTC)
dude, did you go to nationals? I was in the regional spelling bee, just because I went to a small school. being in the actual big bee with people who had actually studied was probably the first academic reality check of my career.

and not that you asked?

but it was "asphodel". I went with a-s-f-i-d-e-l. I still have yet to encounter this word in real life.

speaking of spelling errors...
I lost after state to the stupidest word. "Narrator." I spelled it "naratorr" and my dad hung his head in shame. My principal said, "oh. Well, you made it pretty far."

My studying for that consisted of my dad reading words out of the dictionary and me spelling them back. I didn't know about the origin, root, etc. Let's hear it for phonics!

I have never encountered "ashodel." I spelled down four kids who missed keratectomy. "Narrator." Bah.

these are all good -- I already posted mine over at dovil. But I forgot to mention how much I love every single Spike/Harmony scene, though my fave is 20 questions: "Harmony -- is it a sodding breadbox?"

and prety much anything with Dru.
Sep. 28th, 2004 12:36 pm (UTC)
I fell in love with Monkeybottoms' pic of Harmony writing on his back "Spike loves Monkey" in lipstick. Hee! The funny snarky stuff was terrific. I have other things on Dovil's list, too. I need to bring the over here to make my list complete....

Um, that would be really dorky, and I'm not prepared to hit that low.

Embrace the dork side of the force, stoney! Embrace it until it hurts!

*strokes your pretty list*
Sep. 28th, 2004 07:20 pm (UTC)
Hello. My name is Stoney, and I'm a dork.
*sounds of mechanical breathing*
Stoney. Tuuuuuuurn to the DAHk side. It is your DESSSSS-tiny.

(no, I didn't get the new boxed set today. Nope.)

TK421! Why are you not at your post?

I am sooo hurting from the dorkitude.

of the Joss Verse stuff, #9 is a favorite of mine, SMG might not have liked it, but it looked damn sexy from where i was watching it! I was a fan of the darker side of Wes. And you know how there were several references to tarot cards in the show, the name Robin Wood was the name of a deck of tarot cards, I wonder if that was diliberate or by chance.

Sep. 28th, 2004 12:38 pm (UTC)
See, I know nothing of the Tarot. There's probably a whole sub-text I'm missing, huh?

When i read that she hates filming that, I was thinking that it was pretty hard to tell. I feel tingly in my naughties when I watch that scene.

6. The car I am most in love with: Oldsmobile. (I never shot for the stars, just the street lamps)


Hee hee, too funny!

(by the way, I've friended you - no need to friend me back. I just didn't want you looking at your profile thinking, "Who the hell is this??" Well, you might still say that but at least it won't as a *total* shock. *g*)
Sep. 28th, 2004 07:23 pm (UTC)
Hey! New buds rule!
Rule # 1. There are no rules. Rule #2: see Rule #1.

I frequently misspell words, contrary to the post above, I kick it ol' school, and ain't no party like an LJ party cuz an LJ party don't stop.

If that didn't scare you off, I'm impressed and ready to embrace you!
Sep. 28th, 2004 07:32 pm (UTC)
Re: Hey! New buds rule!
WHEE!! Nope, no scaring me off. As for my LJ, I tend to ramble, bitch, make dorky-ass jokes that no one laughs at but me... did I mention bitch?? *g*
Sep. 28th, 2004 07:47 pm (UTC)
Re: Hey! New buds rule!
Did I mention I'm cool as hell? No? Well, I am. No matter what my flist says. *g*

(This is a prime example of the dorky-ass jokes I mentioned above. You know you wanna friend me.... I mean, c'mon, do you really want to risk *not* being able to read these jokes? I didn't think so...)
Sep. 28th, 2004 11:23 pm (UTC)
It's too late at night for me to think clearly, but some Jossverse that comes to mind is
1. Playing poker for kittens!
2. Spike having sex with invisible buffy
3. Anya's fear of bunnies
4. Just about every interaction between Angel & Spike this last season
5. Spike singing "Let me rest in peace" in Once More With Feeling

Hmmmm. Sensing a Spike theme?

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
