::Debbi takes a deep breath::

I just got the phonecall, you know about being a contestant on The Einstein Factor, with BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER as my topic.


Can somebody remind me again why this was a good idea.

You're going to do great, hon! You sailed through the audition and now you have an excuse to sit and watch Spike, amongst others, at every available opportunity (when it doesn't interfere with your course, that is) until after you do the show.

Where's the bad?

See I knew someone would have the right positive spin. Yep, it's all good (except for the butterflies who have set up residence in my tummy).

Thanks for your support.
All sorts of fun... Spike, Oz, trying to spot Tom Lenk behind his vampire make-up in The Real Me... Of course, the hard part will be un-learning all the fanfic.

Sympathy hyperventilation.

It is going to be such fun! I'll tape you!!!
Fun, scary, gut wrenching fun.

I also reserve the right to restrict taping of any kind - I do not need my humiliation preserved on tape ;)
Forbidden as well - don't think the show engenders much interest to have it available for downloading - it on the equivalent of the BBC after all!
Well, I had no doubt you'd be selected!

Here's a couple of practice questions:
a) What doomed lovers possessed Buffy and Angel on the night of the Sadie Hawkins dance?
b) (general knowledge) What year did the First Fleet arrive in Australia and who was on board?
Everyone else seems to have had more confidence in me than I did.

1) James and .... (Grace, but I had to look up her name)
2) 1788, lots of convicts and some Pommie gits.

This is good, just the sort of thing I need.

1) In the Scoobies joining spell which defeated Adam, which Scoob was which function?
2) Name the nine US presidents from 1960 to now.
Oh wow, go you! I'll check out the show and cheer you on. And come on! Who knows Buffy better than we know Buffy, huh? Huh?!

Eep, I'm not that good at trivia question, I'll try one they asked at the BtVS convention earlier: Andy Hallet played an extra in which Buffy episode? (will they go for things like that?)

Eh, that's about all I've got. ::blushes::
Andy Hallet - absolutely no idea, but it is a good question.

If I get a chance tomorrow I'll post last year's Buffy questions to give everyone an idea of what they ask.

Thanks for the support - I'll need it, my knees are already shaky!!
He's in "Hush", in that Buffy dream when she and Riley kissed in front of the lecture? He's one of the students sitting in the lecture hall. I only know because Joss mentioned it in his commentary.

Hmm, yes! I think we will have plenty of questions to prep you for. Good luck! And don't be nervous (though I definitely will be if it's me!!), I'm fairly sure you'll know more than the people asking the questions. ;-)
I fly to Melbourne on Thursday 21 April for the taping, don't know when it will go to air. I've posted about it on my LJ if you want to check it out.
