Long, long  ago there was a show called Buffy The Vampire  Slayer.   I  was looking forward  to  it,  because I  had seen  some gems  in the campy movie  of  the same  name.  The TV  show  was so  much  better  than  the movie.  My  sisters and  I talked about the show. Around  the  same  time, my  DH and I moved to  CA .  He worked long  hours,  and I  went to  the grocery  store  to find  people to  talk to.  I  was  lonely.   Somewhere  along  the line I  found  The  Board.


The Board was  the  place  where all kinds of  different people talked  about Buffy. There were professors, moms, lawyers,  students,  geeks,musicians and artists. We analyzed ,criticized, predicted the next  move for  our  show, and  got  to  know  each  other .  Over 14  years  we  went  from buffy  friends to  invisible  friends to friends. Marriages,  citizenship, children, divorces, bombs, salad  shooters, careers, muffalettas,  hair,  and underwear were only  a few  of  things  we talked about.

Some of  us  have  met in  the physical  world.   Some  of  us  are shorter  than expected, sweeter  than  imagined, and  spell  better  when  we  talk.   But  we have learned , that what  we  write is  what we  say.

Today  we  lost one  of our own.  ita  was a  fierce.   She did Krav Maga  and questioned  you  whenever your arguments got sloppy.  She  built  our board.  She put really  gross  links  on our  board (no ,  I  am not  sharing) and really  beautiful  links.   She was  brave .   She  moved  to LA  with  and  stayed  with  a  relative stranger(Thanks  Allyson)  until  she  found  a  job.   She  was  determined.   Even  with  debilitating migraines  every  day  she worked,  stayed involved in fandoms , and took  art  classes.

everyday ita will be  missed

    Reblogged this on Sumik’s Weblog and commented:
    Yes, yes, yes. I’ve been thinking about how much her fierce character showed through recently as she fought her way through the pain that stifled her physical sense of self and the pain meds that were inhibiting her mental prowess – as impressive as she was before – when she was whole she was at least as impressive in her strength in handling the crap she was dealt.

    Hugs to you and the rest of the Buffistas.
