This. Is. So. Awesome. (Day 10 of Thankfulness)

I am thankful for the awesomeness that is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We've been rewatching the entire series and I love it even more the second time around. What an amazing show. Campy, funny, intelligent, sensitive, and with a pretty bad-ass heroine (who can rock the leather pants and not mess up her lip gloss, to boot). I heart Buffy.

I'm also thankful for the polar opposite: the Twilight series (books and movies). Arguably even more campy, retro, and an over-the-top silly romance, it's anti-feminist and eye-rollingly teen-y, and yet I love it so much. Oh Edward, you make being a self-empowered feminist who can be trusted with a kitchen knife seem SO last century.

However, I LOVED this even more. So. Freaking. Awesome. Do you see why Buffy is the best? Sorry, Edward. You gotta admit, the girl has a point.

LOL that was hilarious! I was never really a big fan of buffy although I did like the follow up series, Angel.

This was great though, I will have to show it to my sister in law as we share a love of all things twilight!

I loved Buffy, and have never seen Twilight... I sort of assumed it would be rubbish. Maybe I should give it a try; I think there's a film just out at the moment.

Tammie: I know what you mean.

Barefoot: Angel was fun too, but I loved Buffy the best. The end of Angel was just bizarre!

Rachel: Twilight is sort of rubbish. But it's the best sort of addictive rubbish. :) Read the books first!

i wanted to mention how much i love the fact that one of the things you're "thankful" for is a tv show. i love that!

are you going to see new moon? i want to but i think ill wait until all the excitement dies down.

Tammie: I'm thankful for Buffy for so many reasons. Not least of which is the amazing butt-kicking role model of Buffy herself. I love her.

New Moon: probably... my friend Lara and I went and saw Twilight last year (with my mom!) and it was fun. We'll probably go see New Moon this year while our cookies are cooling (during our annual holiday cookie-crafty fest). We'll do a matinee to avoid the worst of the giggles and swoons.
