F***ing Awesome!

I saw my friend Marilyn for the first time since graduating from grad school. She and I have been friends since BEFORE either of us got into grad school. She was two years ahead of me, but we kept in touch (as we were supremely close before she graduated from grad school and got a grown-up job and all.)

Anyway… her present to me hit the nail RIGHT on its head. Observe:

For those of you Buffy, the Vampire Slayer geeks in the audience, yes, it’s a FAITH action figure! Not only is the Faith action figure, it’s the “Graduation Day” action figure! (On my list as one of my favorite episodes of Buffy… EVER.) My only beef is that it looks NOTHING like Eliza Dushku, who played Faith. You may be familiar with her look by now:

Despite that, I do have to say just ONE thing. She could not have gotten me a better graduation gift. Simply put, old friends are not JUST the best friends. Old friends f****n’ RULE!

Thanks, Marilyn! 😀

    I want one of those! You’re right it doesn’t look a lot like faith, more like Janeane Grarofalo. Gradutation day was one of the best (Then it went into college with that lamo Riley). I always thought faith should have her own show.

    The rumor mill had it that Joss Whedon wanted to create a spin-off with Faith as the main character. The rumor mill also has it that she turned it down to do Tru Calling.

    Good show, but it would have been more fun to see Faith’s path to eventual redemption.

    I was totally confused by the picture – why is Faith posting pictures of Janeane Garafalo action figures? lol… Eliza should be kicking some toy company’s ass for not bringing her sexy back in molded plastic.
