Drabble: The Watcher's Dairies
Happy Birthday to spikereader. Belated happy birthday to julia_here and commiserations on the Deer Incident. Also belated happy birthday to mommanerd if it was your birthday; you don’t show on the list and I’m going by other people having posted wishes (and wondering how they knew).

The Chinese government aren't usually my favourite people - especially since they banned yangchencen, who is one of my favourite people, from accessing LiveJournal - but I must admit I've been impressed by their response to the earthquake disaster. It rather puts GWB's response to Katrina to shame - and it totally and utterly puts to shame the appalling gang of brutal kleptocrats who could loosely be termed the 'government' of Burma/Myanmar.

Enough of serious matters. Here is an extremely stupid drabble (not specifically a birthday fic). S6 immediately after ‘Once More With Feeling’. 100 words, rating G.

The Watcher’s Dairies


The demon had appeared in Sunnydale at the same time as Sweet; a coincidence, it seemed, for it continued its rampage of destruction after the musical demon had departed. Giles spotted it in the warehouse district and pursued it until it fled into a building. Giles followed. In the dark he didn’t realize where he was until he detected a smell of cheese and then stumbled into a tank of liquid by-products.

An inner door opened and the lights went on. “What are you doing?” demanded the cheese-maker.

Giles looked down at the knee-deep liquid. “I’m standing in your whey.”

Sorry!

Exhausted by his pursuit of the demon, Spike lay down in a vegetable garden and, when Buffy tried to rouse him, he brushed her off by telling her "Let me rest in peas."

Buffy continued on her own and followed the demon into the sewers. She had to wade through water full of human waste. From a manhole above Dawn called down to her. "What are you doing down there, Buffy?"

Buffy wrinkled her nose and replied "I'm just going through the motions."

At first I wasn't sure that it would work and I thought that I might have to junket.

Thank you for the birthday wishes - and it's been far too long since I've read any of your drabbles. I read this with great anticipation and wasn't disappointed. :D

::slaps forehead::

Oh, you didn't Please tell me you didn't just go there!

In all fairness, you'd be hard-pressed to respond in a worse way that the Burmese Junta. So tragic.

I'll go a long, long, whey for a pun.

Thank you for the birtday wishes, kind sir. I'm not sure why it isn't showing up -- you're not the only one who mentioned it.

I had it marked private last year, and then changed that status when there were a few comments about it not showing up. Maybe those ornery LJ fairies zapped it back to it's former status! Anyway, I had a fine day with my very fine family.
mommanerd From: mommanerd Date: May 15th, 2008 12:08 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL - loved this! Nobody does a pun better than you.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: May 15th, 2008 07:43 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you!

beer_good_foamy does puns to very much the same standard as me - if you like mine you'll like his too.

standing in your whey is a good groaner, but going through the motions is inspired!

Returning from the sewers Buffy went home and climbed the stairs. She thought that she heard one of her friends but she couldn't see her anywhere so called out "Where are you, Tara?"

From downstairs a voice replied "I'm under your smell."
