I’m a very good listener. But I am also an avid reader/tv show viewer/movie watcher. Have been my whole life. With that in mind, just know, that when I’m talking to you, there are certain phrases or words that have been embedded in my psyche that when I hear them, I inevitably play the song, or scene/quote over in my head.

Now I promise that I’m listening and absorbing everything you say to me, and I can’t help it. Here are a few key phrases that set off scenes or musical numbers in my head:

If the thing going through my head is a quote, I will more than likely say part of the quote to you, as it pertains and fits into the conversation. Sadly, people don’t generally ‘get it’.

Now for those of you who are heathens and don’t know what scenes I was referring to, here is a list (in order). I highly suggest you check these things out, because clearly your life is lacking stimulation.

1. An American Tale
2. Repo! The Genetic Opera
3. Monster’s Inc.
4. The Big Bang Theory
5. Supernatural, “My Bloody Valentine”

I am a librarian!

As part of my new job, I went up to West Virginia on Friday for 'training'.

In reality a super-secret library boot camp that I've decided to share with all of you.

First of all, super-secret library boot camp starts with waking up at an un-godly time in the morning:

Once at the base, they put me through rigorous training of obstacles or situations I may face while working with the general public:

And by the end of the day, I was ready, I was fit. By the end of the day, I was prepared:

Joss Whedon

That's right.

Joss Whedon is secretly behind all the sad/bad things that happen on your favorite TV shows. Have a favorite character die? Joss. An OTP that either hasn't gotten together even though the love is there, or break up without resolve and nothing but angst and sadness? Joss.

You may stop to ask yourself where am I getting my information. Where do I get off throwing around these "accusations", since Mr. Whedon hasn't had a television show since Dollhouse was canceled. cancel Well I'll tell you. Within his own shows, he went above and beyond your normal angst/killing off people that you'd find in your normal series; some deaths without reason while other people who you hate or don't serve much purpose (I'm looking at you Dawn, Connor and to a lesser extent, Jayne).

Even though Joss Whedon doesn't have anything on air at the moment, I believe, that he is secretly sending tips and having short phone calls with the producers of our favorite shows, telling them how to drive us, the fans, completely mad. (Bones, Heroes, Supernatural, I'm mostly looking at you. Grey's Anatomy to a lesser extent)

Now don't get me wrong. My relationship with Joss Whedon is a complicated one. Anyone who is a fan of any or all of his shows will tell you. We love and hate him so much at the same time. He gives us so much, and then he either takes it away or fucks with it so much that we sit back and cry.

(NOTE: I do not blame him for the cancellations of his shows, that's all FOX)

But, I think that we can all agree on one simple fact:

oh the things that have made me cry

Well a couple weeks ago, my friends and I went out to see "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1" and we enjoyed it and are on pins and needles waiting for the second half.

I had been hearing about how sad the end of the movie was, and I read the book, so I had a pretty good idea about who was going to die at the end of this half.

Also, I like to think of myself as level headed when it comes to my entertainment. Things can be sad, and I can feel the tears coming, but it takes a lot to actually bring them forth to my eyes and DH pt 1. did just that.

Now my friend Dawn is very good at holding in those type of girly feelings and she struggled, like a trooper during the final scene but this was the ending result for the three of us:

And that got me to thinking of other tv shows/movie scenes that had made me cry here are the top two that just leave me bawling like a small child no matter how many times I watch it. Here be spoilers

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Body"

And of course I don't know a single person who doesn't cry during "My Girl"

Now there are a few more shows that have made me cry, or episodes of tv that I won't watch again because they're too sad, but I don't possess even the slightest bit of talent or patients to draw those.

Tomorrow I shall show you who is behind all the sad/infuriating things that happen on television. Who could this mysterious and powerful masked man be????
