Dear Diary,

No matter how long I live with all the weirdness that happens around here, I swear that sometimes the stuff that happens surprises even me.

Anya was here today.

According to Giles, she was conjured through a combination of something I said and Willow trying to meditate.  I'm not quite sure how it happened.  I don't think I used the word "wish" at all.

It was so wonderful to see Anya.  I forgot how much I've missed her.  Although I have to say I definitely do not approve of her latest fashion choices.  She was wearing this weird orange jumpsuit thing.  Of course I guess she really doesn't have much of a choice.

Evidently, Anya's serving time in Purgatory for the next 1,100 years.  It makes me really sad to realize that she didn't go to Heaven like I originally thought.  I suppose it was na´ve to think that she would after all the awful stuff she did, but I figured that stopping a couple of apocalypses would count for something.  According to Anya, it doesn't count for much.

But, hey, I suppose it's better than the alternative.  I couldn't stand it if Anya had gotten sent to Hell.  That would've been just completely wrong.

Anyway, what happened is that when I told Buffy I wanted Xander to be able to see the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy that he missed, it got all garbled and gave Xander a blue eye and dragged Anya here because he missed her.  Yeah, I know.  It doesn't make too much sense.  But it's what happened.

Like it's not bad enough I can't use the "w" word, now I can't even ask for stuff generally!




I asked Buffy and Giles if there was anything we could do to help Anya out, maybe make some sacrifices to get her paroled early or something.  But Xander said that we shouldn't do anything.  Anya specifically told him that she wanted to do this on her own, and didn't need us to mess things up on her.

I hope her boss heard that.  Maybe that'll get her some time off for good behavior.  Or at least a better outfit.  No matter what, I'm going to ask Lessa if there's anything I can do that won't interfere with Anya's rehabilitation, but will still let her know I'm thinking of her, that I'm cheering her on and that I'm happy.

I think Xander and Anya got a chance to work things out, so that's pretty cool.  Xander certainly seems happier.  Hopefully he got some sort of peace out of the whole deal.

Oh, oh, I almost forgot!!  Mrs. Benson gave me a picture of Mark from when he had braces.  It's totally cute.  I'll tape it in here as soon as I get it scanned into the computer.  I want to turn it into my desktop background or something

More Later.

He's SO CUTE!!!
