Buffy

I finished Buffy last night. It took me a while to get to Season 7, but it's finally done. I was just going to watch one disc last night, but then there were only three episodes left, so I decided to stay up and finish them.

I remember hearing some people say that they didn't really like the ending, but I enjoyed it. I really liked what they did with the slayers at the end, although I'm not sure what I think about how they revealed it via the flashback. I mean, it's not like we didn't know what it was going to be, right? I'm pretty slow to pick things up, so if I could figure it out, then I'm sure everyone else could, too. So, even though we know what's going to happen, does it still lend some emotional impact to "reveal" it through a flashback, right in the heat of the action? I guess so. Although it probably would have had even more emotional impact had we not known it was coming.

Boggle Tournament

I've been thinking some about doing another Boggle tournament. Since the usual hosting place is probably not doable any more, and since my current place is likely not big enough, does anyone have suggestions for a place to hold a tournament? I assume there would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-20 people, judging by (what I recall of) previous years.

Of course, I may actually never pull this together, but if there's interest and a decent place to hold it, it might actually happen at some point.

(For those newer fans of my journal, I've hosted 3 Boggle tournaments. I had to let someone else win the first one, and magid had that honor. But then I had to win the next two.)
