#ThrowbackThursday A Visit to Sunnydale High School

For those of you who watched the show, you’ll recognize that facade immediately. For others, a little background. I was flipping through the channels one day when I caught this amazingly sensual scene between a young blonde girl and a very hunky guy. Buffy and Angel. I flipped away, but then had to go back and watch. That was it! I was hooked! I went back and caught up with every show I had missed and faithfully followed Buffy the Vampire Slayer for all the remaining seasons. To this day it is my favorite show of all time and as a writer, I learned a lot about dialogue, character-building and pushing boundaries.

To honor my love of the show, I convinced my family to take a trip with me to Torrance High School, the real life location of the fictional Sunnydale High School where the shot was set in the early seasons. You’ll notice that to make it truly official, I wore my Sunnydale High School t-shirt! And in case you haven’t guess it by now, I am truly a nerd at heart. (I was also a lot blonder and thinner in case you didn’t notice! LOL)

Guilty Pleasures Monday – James Marsters

spikeThose in the Buffyverse know what I mean when I say I am a Spuffy gal. I so wanted Buffy to get together with Spike!

So today’s Guilty Pleasures Monday is none other than the bad boy himself – James Marsters. James played the amazing Spike, a passionate vampire who would do anything for the women he loved. As time went on in the series, you learned more and more about how complex he was and what had made him into the vampire he was.

James is also a musician and has appeared on Angel, Smallville and now in Torchwood. In 2009 James will be appearing in DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION.

I hope you enjoyed this morning’s Guilty Pleasure. I’m picking the winners from last week’s guest blog contests but have one coming up for you today! Please take a moment to visit my friend Kaye Monro for a chance to win a SINS OF THE FLESH T-shirt and a copy of SOLDIER’S SECRET CHILD!
