Check out my first article for Refinery 29!
Back to your regular scheduled prgramming..sort of! I was sent some nail polish a while back that was actually designed by Angel's David Boreanaz and his wife, Jaime. They were worried about their kid biting her nails and ingesting all kinds of weird nail chemicals. They made these 4-free, which means it's produced without formaldehyde, DBP, toluene or camphor. I'm not sure what that means exactly, but I'm all for less chemicals. Pink and red are classic, but I'm really obsessed with the gold. It has a pretty matte sheen and seems to stay on the longest. It's a nice holiday color and the prices are not bad. Best of all, I love being able to say, "Guess who designed this?!"
Let's look at an adorable picture of their first Comic Con instead.
I love cheesy humor and these definitely made me chuckle.
Yep, that's Ashanti and Amy Adams.
I somehow needed all three of these links. Some are different!
Cool stunt gifs
I somehow ended up watching this whole thing. They are a charismatic bunch! I especially liked this response from J. August Richards.
Ha! This is clever fun.
This is adorable and funny.
David Boreanaz references Angel in the most endearing way.
Not sure I agree, but I'm glad the argument exists.
This post literally make me choke up as I kept scrolling. Nope, no other show is better.
Btw, this is what Xander and Anya look like these days. <3
I'll end this post with the most ridiculous photo I could find.

I forgot to add in these last two which are pretty cute!
I apologize for wonkiness. I'm kind of terrible at Photoshop..
Meeting celebrities is kind of weird. It's like this short moment as you vie for their attention and try to convey your admiration. I don't fan-girl very often (is that a verb?), but the day I met Joss Whedon, I couldn't contain my excitement.
I met him at a Q&A for Much Ado About Nothing. The theatre had a small, but eager audience excited to be there. The film was sweet and enjoyable; it was great seeing many Whedon actors all in one project. It's based in the modern day, but is literally all Shakespeare so I did miss the Whedon wit.
It was a short Q&A and I racked my brain for a question, something that hadn't been asked. I raised my hand for the last one of the night and asked, "If there was one question you wish people would ask, what would it be?" haha Such a non-question! He was actually stumped. He thought about it for a while and said he'd "have to get back to me on that one."
I brought along my dvd booklet in case I could get something signed. I had it ready in hand as the official whoever whisked him backstage. They let about four or five of us back, basically the nerds who had bum-rushed the stage. I was sitting front row because I'm cool like that and I got my autograph! An autograph seems old-fashioned in this day and age and I love that. I think he mentioned something about me stumping him with that question, but it all went pretty fast.
They say never meet your heroes, but all went well and he was a very nice gent. Surprisingly he's the only one from Buffy I've ever met. Hopefully this will be remedied! I'd love to meet a cast member or two!
Just the other day, a former Buffy writer tweeted at me in reference to Once Upon a Time. Another fan-girl moment!
(P.S. My mom is my real hero!)
