Well, I guess that's it. I've put in my notice at work, packed up all my stuff, just got a bag of clothes and Mr. Gordo. Somehow, I lost my cellphone. Bugger.

Wait. Did I just say bugger? I've been around Spike too long. ;)

Anyway, we're heading out of Cleveland. My manager left the company and offered me a position with her at her new job, and it's back in California. Northern California, but California none the less. Spike's bored as as can be out here, so we're heading back out west, see if he can't find some trouble to get into out there. Besides. I've got some friends out there. *g*

Spike?

And something a little OOC for me...Collapse )

Spike worries me.

He just rolled over and said "Put the earmuffs on the cookie."

No more showtunes for him.

It's just a ride, it's just a ride. No need to run, no need to hide... [27 Nov 2004|11:07pm]

No snow yet. That's a good thing. Patrolling in snow was my less than favorite part of last winter.

Thanksgiving was good, if a little awkward. Kennedy's parents were here, so Spike and I sort of just stayed out of the way. Hard enough explaining to your parents that you're a lesbian slayer in love with a witch, but then to have to add that her best friend is The Slayer, and in love with a vampire? Yeah. No thanks.

I guess things are good. Dawnie's mostly stayed out of trouble, Spike and I are happy, Giles is cleaning his glasses.. Hee. Yeah. And yes, I know I just jinxed myself. But, honestly? It's been a little boring lately.

Spitting in a wishing well, blown to hell ... crash, I'm the last splash... [19 Nov 2004|08:00pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Bored. Still at work, and so bored. I hate reports. Blah.

I'd say I wish something would happen, but then something WOULD happen, and it would probably be of the demon-y type and mixing that with work is just not a good idea.

I wonder if I could get Spike to go dancing with me tonight. Hmm.

Spike just surprised me with tickets to a concert.

Only...it's Barry Manilow. o.0

Show starts at eight. I suppose I owe it to him for all the times I've made him watch my bad ice skating movies. Who knows, could be fun! But, I never pictured him as a Manilow fan. That was, you know, Angel.

For the record? Don't let Spike talk me into eating spicy Indian food before bed. As much as I love Chicken Tikka Masala, dreaming about Angel screaming down the lane in the parking lot standing on the back of a shopping cart going "WHEEEEEEEEE!" is just ... disturbing. Oh yeah.

Sorry for the lack of postiness lately. Work hired me on full time as the new office manager, which is tres cool. Got myself a raise, and benefits. Now I just need to figure out how to claim the rest of the house as dependents, hee. And, really, does Spike need insurance? I don't think so. Just stay out of the sun and away from the stakes, and I think he'll be alright. Although....you think I could get a life insurance policy on him? *veg*

Dawnie seems to be doing well in school. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. She's super smart, but I don't want her to be like, exiled or something. Just because you're smart doesn't mean you can't be cool, you know? Look at Willow! She's one of the smartest people I know, and she's my best friend. :D Although, you know, that might not be the best example considering that we blew up our high school. Yeah...

I guess I'll head out for a patrol or something. If anyone wants to come with me, I'm leaving in a few minutes. :)

Spent most of the day on the couch with Willow. Chick flicks? Are the best thing for kicking out of a funk. Spike was down in the basement with Colleen and Caridad, just sort of working with them. Not sure why they suddenly wanted to work out with him, but hey, whatever. Gave me a chance to spend time with Will, which is always of the good.

Yesterday at work, I was thinking about things, and for some reason the one time I'd actually staked Spike came to mind. Now, he was wearing the Gem of Amara at the time, but I still can't believe I came that close to killing him. If someone had told me then that five years later, I'd be in love with him? I'd have laughed in their face. It's amazing to me how much things -- and people -- change over the years. And, still, some people don't.

Meh. No sense in getting all broody. I should leave that to Angel. I'm gonna go kill something, then come back and watch another silly movie.

Back from Phoebe's funeral. Have been for a few days, and spent them mostly curled up on the couch with Spike when not patrolling or working. Just really sad, since she's gone. Doesn't seem right, somehow, that she could be taken so easily. I mean, she's one of the most powerful witches, like, EVER, and now she's not. I just don't get it. Well, I get that she's gone, sure. Just not the how's or the why's. She was so young, too. Only a few years older than me, at 28. This whole "hot chicks with superpowers and a destiny" thing is way overrated.

Cole was there, with I think his son. Piper said she wasn't sure if he'd be going. He looked pretty bad. Didn't really talk to him about it, but I did send some flowers, too. Spent the day with her and her sisters (one of which is back from the dead, and not UNDEAD, and I don't need to tell you just how confusing THAT whole thing is, do I?), and Piper made me feel so welcome. I need to send her a thank you card for her hospitality.

Okay. I think I'm gonna grab Spike and make a quick sweep, then come back home and just snuggle. Just because the man I love is of the undead doesn't mean anything. Being with him over the last few days has made me feel better. Well, him and Mr. Gordo, too.

So, as others have said, the picnic was a success. :) Spike joined us after sundown, and he and I stayed out a while longer after everyone else went home, just ... well, being together. :)

Things are good. Work is happy with me and they're thinking about making me full time, which would be much with the good. I hope that works out. Really really hope it does.

I had one of my prophetic slayer dreams last week, but I can't tell who the girl in it was. That? Is big with the frustrating. How am I supposed to know what to expect when I don't know what's going on?!?! Grr argh.

Wooohoooo!

Tomorrow's Labor Day, which means I don't have to work! That's the best thing ever!

Wonder if the gang would be up for a picnic...

I was lost and I'm still lost but now I feel so much better.... [05 Sep 2004|12:27am]

Work's good. I've been temping as a receptionist. It's easy work, and it's fun. The people there are soooo nice. And the hours are good too. Ten in the morning until a little after six at night. It's a bit longer than I'm used to working, but the people in the office are so cool, it sort of flies by. Like today? They had lunch catered by this funky little mexican restaurant downtown. I haven't had food that good in at least a year. Mmmm, enchiladas. And the hours are such that I can still get my slay on before bed. ;)

Anyway, it looks like Andrew's gone and found himself a job, which is big with the good. Hopefully, we'll be able to get caught up on rent and other stuff, because I think Faith's mystery benefactor may have disappeared. Not to mention that I haven't heard anything from Faith in a while, but that's kind of her thing.

So far the puppy has been kept AWAY from my shoes. Poor GIles lost a loafer to the fight, but I'm sure it went bravely. Hee. Kennedy, Will? Please, keep Mason away from the boots. I need them, and many other shoes, for work. :D And, keep him FAR AWAY from Mr. Gordo.

Not much else going on, really. Things are good, Spike's good, Xand's in LA for work, Giles is back from Greece, and things are good. :D Really hope I didn't just jinx us by saying that...

So. Okay. I've been MIA. Because ... uhm. Well, I just haven't been much with the posty.

Spent last week getting Dawnie ready for school, which is always fun. I remember my senior year of high school. Hopefully her's will be less traumatic. You know, killing demons at your graduation is nowhere near as fun as it sounds. Really.

Today was going out and putting in applications with Willow. Hopefully, she'll get a job at the magic shop here in town. I know she wants to do something other than being all research-y. I put in at a temp agency, and they seemed interested, so who knows, right? Could make with the good.

Kennedy's back from her "unannounced walkabout", as Vi would say. She brought presents, too! Dawn and I got similar but not quite matching Prada bags, and a really kicky belt for me. Which, it just so happens, matches a new pair of boots I got recently. Thanks so much, K! Really. :)

So, I promise not to go so long between updates again. Really. I don't mean to be as bad as I have been. Just spending time with the family, and Spike, and ... yeah. :D

Grrr.

Boys are so dumb sometimes. Needs to protect me, whatever.

Will and I caught a flight out of Boston earlier today. Just got home a little while ago. Spike and Andrew are driving back together. I think they left tonight. Whatever. Ended up kicking Spike out of our room and sharing with Willow for the rest of the trip.

Ugh. Too upset to talk about the trip right now. Just want to take a shower, eat something, and go to bed.

Hey, Dawnie? Where's Mr. Gordo? And who's this new bear with the big, shiny belt buckle?

Got a call from a Watcher in Boston today. He said that he found one of his Slayers ... well, he found one of his Slayers. It wasn't pretty, either. I've seen many things, but what he described to me was beyond nasty. Whatever it was that killer her was wicked scary.

So, Spike and I are heading out to Boston in a bit. Going to try the "driving during nighttime hours", as driving in daylight? Well, we'd be arriving as Slayer, The and Ash, Pile of. I hope this thing is somewhere in the neighborhood when we get there, because this time? I want to see what I'm up against.

Anyone want to head out with us?

I don't want to talk about the other night. Really, I don't. Homewrecking skank.

Spike's been on the couch since then. This morning, he did the sweetest thing. He tried to make me eggs benedict I think and french toast. It was all burnt beyond recognition, but so sweet. Brought them to me in bed and everything, complete with a rose. Couldn't stay mad at him after that, could I? So, we decided to stay in today, just spend time together around the house. Not like we could really go out, right? Anyway, we've been watching movies and whatnot. He's made me watch a few kung-fu movies, one called The Flying Guillotine -- WAY cheesy -- and Romeo Must Die -- much lighter on the cheese, pretty good actually. I made him watch one of my favorite movies in return for the cheese -- The Cutting Edge. What? A girl's gotta have her ice skating movies on DVD!

Anyway, right now we're watching League of Extrordinary Gentlemen with Dawnie. We've made popcorn and all that too. :D Although, what's up with Mina's eyes turning red when she gets her gameface on? So not true to life.

So, yes. Day of cheesy movies was today. I think tomorrow we may watch more, but I don't know what. After this is over, I think Spike and I will make a quick patrol, then come home. Maybe watch another movie, maybe something else. Not sure yet. ;)

Okay, now this is not of the good.  We definitely have a ghost.  Something threw Gordo at Willow and told her to "stay out of it."

So time to break out the research.  What should we do?  Exorcism?  Do we need a priest for that?  I know that one back in high school didn't go so well.  I guess it's not so much of a problem right now. There are so many things worse than a stuffed pig that the ghost could be throwing around.

But I want this dealt with.  Like, before it becomes this huge deal with bees and everything.  Anyone have any ideas?

[ mood | good ]

So the other night I let Spike talk me into going to see Spider-Man 2 with Andrew and Ben.  The movie maybe wasn't the greatest, but it was worth it to watch Andrew wince every time Spike made a comment.

Things seem to be of the normal around here, now that Dawn's back home and we're not all obsession-ized.  Mainly she's barricaded herself in her room and is playing ... I don't even know what that is. I'm really not sure I want to find out. There's an odd amount of pizza boxes in the trash, too.  I wonder how she's paying for that.  Hmm. Any further in debt to me and she won't get out until she's like ... forty.

And also?  I could swear I saw the shiny one's black sweater floating through the air out of the corner of my eye, but when I looked over there it was gone.  If this building turns out to be haunted, all I gotta say is it's someone else's turn to get possessed this time.
