Let Italy boast of her gay gilded waters
Her vines and her bowers and her soft sunny skies
Her sons drinking love from the eyes of her daughters
Where freedom expires amid softness and sighs
Scotland's blue mountains wild where hoary cliffs are piled
Towering in grandeur are dearer tae me
Land of the misty cloud land of the tempest loud
Land of the brave and proud land of the free
Enthroned on the peak of her own highland mountains
Te spirit of Scotia reigns fearless and free
Her green tartan waving o'er blue rock and fountain
And proudly she sings looking over the sea
Here among my mountains wild I have serenely smiled
When armies and empires against me were hurled
Firm as my native rock I have withstood the shock
Of England, of Denmark, or Rome and the world
But see how proudly her war steeds are prancing
Deep groves of steel trodden down in their path
The eyes of my sons like their bright swords are glancing
Triumphantly riding through ruin and death
Bold hearts and nodding plumes wave o'er their bloody tombs
Deepeyed in gore is the green tartan's wave
Shivering are the ranks of steel dire is the horseman's wheel
Victorious in battlefield Scotland the brave
Bold hearts and nodding plumes wave o'er their bloody tombs
Deepeyed in gore is the green tartan's wave
Shivering are the ranks of steel dire is the horseman's wheel
Victorious in battlefield Scotland the brave
Victorious in battlefield Scotland the brave

Wheeeeeedon!

It took my a while to get into Joss Whedon's stuff...but now...well now I am ALLL over it.  Like something....on something....

It actually began with Firefly, moved to Buffy and now is racking up the Angel shows.  Last night Ren and I watched what may have been Mr Whedon's masterpiece.  No no, NOT the musical episode of Buffy,  (though I can see why you would think so) but rather it was the PUPPET episode of ANGEL...

Are you kidding me right now?

How can one show handle all this awesome?

Puppet Angel rules...especially when he gets in an argument with a certain other Vampire.
 
 



But that isn't really what this post was supposed to be about. It was actually supposed to concern Mr Whedon and a Whedon Swap that I just did on the infamous Craftster.  I had been holding on to some blank nesting dolls for a while and couldn't figure out what to do with them.  When this swap came about, I knew this was when I was going to use them...but for which show?  Who wouldn't want a Spike nesting doll?
Ultimately Firefly won out....and the blank dolls became this.



But I couldn't just have Firefly in said package...I needed to include SOMETHING Spike related....so I went with this  
 
Really you only need to watch the first 30 seconds..because that  became this:

Ahhh Joss...how you have made my year.
