For some insane complete lack of reason the theme song for my weekend of fun with my friend in Muskoka became "Mandy" by Barry Manilow! My friend has Barry Manilow's Greatest Hits on vinyl and put on the song to see if I would recognize it after watching Angel's horrible karaoke versions of it (as if obsessive fan me wouldn't!). After that we got Mandy in our heads and were strangely drawn to replay the song numerous times throughout the weekend.

We also watched the first 8 episodes of Veronica Mars, so on the car ride home I realized that the Dandy Warhols' "We Used to Be Friends" (VM theme song) was also stuck in my head. Weirdly the songs merged into my head to become:

"You came and you gave without takin'
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
A long time ago
We used to be friends
But I haven't thought of you lately at all"

My predication for our weekend plans - "We're planning on swimming, hiking, watching good television (Lost and Veronica Mars are on the agenda) and just having a fun time hanging out." - turned out to be almost precisely accurate. We went swimming a couple of times - once skinny dipping at night, a first for me! We hiked on both days up to amazing views of the Muskoka. One of the hikes was not on a trail and it was so much fun to be tramping around the bush again! We didn't watch any Lost because we got so into VM. It wasn't just a fun time, we had an absolute blast!!

The one thing I hadn't included in the plans was giggling, lots and lots of giggling. We kept going out for walks late at night and when the flashlight battery died I freaked out at the darkness (too many horror movies), flailed around, banged into my friend and almost tripped over the lovable, hyperactive dog of my friend's aunt and uncle. Lots of hysterical giggling ensued.

Even though I'd recently re-watched most of the VM episodes I enjoyed watching them just as much - or more - this time. A sure sign of potential love of a show on a Buffy-scale.
