In my daily interactions with people, if there's something that I want to complain about IRL, I say, out loud, "grumble grumble". And then I go put up with whatever it is that is ever so slightly sucky. Extra work to do: grumble grumble. Meeting to go to: grumble grumble. Grocery shopping: grumble grumble.
I don't intend for it to be complain-y. I actually think it's a little bit funny to say it. And then I go and do/put up with whatever.
So the other day I was watching an episode of Buffy with James when this happened:
James turns, looks at me, shocked, and says "that's why you say that!"
Yes, this is why I say "grumble grumble" out loud. Just as you hear Willow say it. There are many things I say because of Buffy.
March 20th is the 10 year anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. My favouritest tv show Of All Time!! I just wanted to share a little bit of how Buffy-culture has shaped me. :)
