It’s interesting the way Buffy broke up with Spike. She told him she didn’t love him and admitted she was just using him. Because he’s Spike, that alone wouldn’t have mattered, but she called him “William” for the first time ever and said that their relationship was bad for [i]her[/i], putting Spike in the position that if he truly loves her and wants what’s best for her he’ll let her go.
Another interesting “break-up” recently was when Willow broke off her friendship with Amy. I can’t remember exactly what she said but it was something like, “If you’re really my friend, stay away from me, and if you're not really my friend, stay away from me.”
Yeah, I caught that. :P I also meant to add yesterday that, although I don't think Riley was a good match for Buffy, both Tracy and I think he's a good match for Sam (and apparently the Scoobies agree, try as they might to dislike her).
I don't really like weddings, never have. I've only been to two in the past 25 years: my own and, most recently, my nephew's. That one I rather enjoyed, as kind of an "outsider" looking in. My nephew's side of the family was represented strongly and almost entirely by his maternal side; on the paternal side there was just my brother, sister, mom and Tracy. Our table was a little island where we could sit back and observe... well, you saw "Hell's Bells."
