10:45 – Barbara has been gone for five days, and is due back sometime tomorrow afternoon. Colin and I both miss her terribly. Last night we started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Netflix streaming. It’s been probably a dozen years since I watched it, and it holds up pretty well. I did cut my Netflix rating from 5 to 4 stars some time ago. Buffy is still good, but it’s not quite top drawer any more. My favorite thing about Buffy, then and now, is that the vampires are actually thinly-disguised stand-ins for progressives. What could be more appropriate? Progs ARE vampires, sucking the life out of American society. I like Buffy’s sarcastic PC term for progs: Undead-Americans. Buffy does to them what I’d like to do, if only I had super powers and a Mr. Pointy. Kill them all. Let Satan sort them out.
With Barbara gone all week, I didn’t have time to do any prepping other than working on some lists of stuff I want to learn/do/acquire if, as, and when.
