So, back to the grindstone today, after the glory of Patsington's commencement on Friday (Patsington Frayningham, B. A. (Hons), M. Phil! The fanciness!) and the relaxation of the weekend (Saturday had Inspector Morse and the couch in the afternoon, Harry Potter and glitzfrau in the evening, while Sunday had knitting and the Corrie omnibus (a lot happened the week I was away! Poor old Sunita!)). But today was the proper return to work, which was a bit of a comedown. At least the weather was delicious, dry and cold and sparkly and a bright blue sky that turned pastel and milky in the late afternoon. Which made tramping over to Dun Laoghaire to collect some review books more appealing than it would be if the weather was its usual rainy self.

But even if it had been raining, the 20 minute walk to the Dun Laoghaire-serving bus would have been worth it. Because I dropped in to the second hand bookshop and discovered the only one of Hilary McKay's Exiles books I didn't have. Hurrah! And then, when I got to the office, what was there waiting for me but THE NEW SARAH WATERS OMG! Yes, I have it in my hot little hands! Three months before it comes out!

So I skipped home laden with fantastic books and nice M&S food (from, um, M&S, not the office) and what was waiting for me at home BUT THE CHOSEN BOX SET! Every single episode of Buffy on DVD! Every one! In a big fancy box! Oh, the bliss. Almost too many fancy cultural aquisitions for one day. But not quite too many.

Anyway, these good things are soothing my homicidal rage at certain recent news reports. Luckily, most of my chums have expressed my feelings on the matter already.

It is now your fault that I was inspired to go to Amazon and discover that they were selling the Buffy boxset on DVD and that I too could have every episode ever ever ever on DVD and have therefore had to buy it and not save the money for Christmas or my wedding. I wash my hands of all responsibility and when questioned shall just say stellanova made me do it.

YAY! Buffy on DVD! How fabulous! I am sharing in your happiness so much now.

I'd followed some of the same posts you mention, but the first link you provide ("certain recent news reports") doesn't seem to point to a post or article.

What else had you found?
