Yo. So this isn't an official official Buffy post, but I felt the need to bring the pain because I was too much of a wimp to "Make It Work" with red cabbage yesterday. Brr.
Check it: my absolute best nerd friend, Michele, and I loooove Whedon. Like, for realsies. Last semester, we were doing this thing where we'd meet once a week and watch Buffy or Angel or whatever and just nerd out all night. My sister, Ebony, was the first person I ever shared my Buffy love with. We would be glued to the TV every single week. Today, I am thankful for a back log of photos..and Buffy...and Whedon...and Ebony...and Michele...and nerdery.
I usually pick a few episodes and plan food around that. We watched "Ted" and "Bad Eggs" while noshing on mini pizzas.

Of course, sometimes I go really deep with it. We ended up watching "Go Fish" and "Superstar" one day so I went with vegan surf and turf. Tofu "stakes" and a world without grilled shrimp. This is funny if you are a Whedonite. Haha.

So many delicious shout outs to the one show that has completely transformed me into who I am today. This was the first show I witnessed in real time, and I cried like a damn baby at the end. Buffy por vida! In fact, I am coincidentally wearing my Sunnydale shirt as I type this. Haha.
So, here's to Tuesday nights with my sister back in the day and Wednesdays with Michele!
