Yay for Ruben! 🙂 I have no preference between Clay and Ruben — I think they’re both amazing — but I honestly thought Clay was going to win. Don’t know why I believed that — though I *think* I read somewhere that Clay’s single is #1 on Amazon.com. I guess I just assumed that that sealed the deal. I hear they’re both releasing albums at the same time so it doesn’t really matter. I think the record contract in itself is more important than the competition.
As for the Buffy series finale, it was amazing. I was so happy to see the Scoobies working together again — just like old times. I had a huge smile on my face during their scene in the hallway — “the Earth is definitely doomed.” And I especially loved that Buffy finally got to become a “normal girl” at the end. Wow, so it really is the end. Another obsession — gone. I wasn’t involved in the fandom of BtVS like I was with Dawson’s Creek but it entertained and inspired me week after week, much like a really good friend. And I’m sad to see it end.
A Buffy/Angel exchange from the finale that I love:
“It’s different. He’s different. He has a soul now.”
“That’s great. (mumbles) Everybody’s got a soul now.”
“He’ll make a difference!”
“Yeah, well, I started it. The whole having a soul. Before it was all the cool new thing.”
“Oh my God, are you twelve?”
“I’m getting the brush-off for Captain Peroxide. It doesn’t necessarily bring out the champion in me.”
“You’re not getting the brush-off! Are you just gonna come here and go all Dawson on me every time I have a boyfriend?”
Hee. I love the Dawson reference. Funn-ay stuff.
