Roadkill

Grr... Arrgh...

Watched the Buffy finale with the Somervillains last night. Almost didn't go, because I had a headache, and I was feeling really pissy when I left work. So glad I went anyway.

Also, it turns out that vwbug is way more evil than anyone could have possibly predicted, because she managed to keep the fact that msbelle would be attending a secret from everyone. Thus each and every one of us got to have a moment of surprised recognition and delight when we realized who was amongst us. (Victor and I looked out the window when we heard a car door slam, and we saw vw walking up to the door with someone in tow we didn't immediately recognize.
