Californians feel like going to the beach and being environmental and good-deedy?
California Coastal Cleanup Day is Saturday, September 21, from 9:00 a.m. – noon. There are more than 50 beaches, rivers and dive locations throughout L.A. County, and many others in the Bay Area and elsewhere
I still haven't decided which location to go to, but if any LAistas are interested, drop me a line.
Pink Gingham Junta Cocktail Party
I and JZ will be driving down to L.A. for the weekend of Nov. 8-10th (so I can be on French TV).
I have no idea who is hosting it or where, but I absolutely expect there to be a swanky cocktail party with all LAistas in attendance (cf., No Excuses post). Plan your outfits now.
Last chance to email me if you live in or around NYC and want to come see the Buffy & Angel premieres after Firefly tomorrow night! email@example.com
Hi all. There's been a little discussion about sending a small gift basket to Joss Whedon and Kai Cole in celebration of their first child.
Have no idea when the baby is due. Unsure if I can get any additional information.
There's been a teensy bit of discussion about sending books and a charity donation to First Book, as we did for Marti.
This would be a Buffista project.
No decisions have been made yet, but I have put the books (minus the ones we sent to Marti) back into a poll, just in case we go forward with this project.
Please discuss whether you're interested again. My thoughts are giving the top 10 books, and $100 donation to First Book.
If you'd like to email me, privately, the address is Allyson000@aol.com
Okay, Paypal is open. Allyson@DavidFury.net
I'm assuming Buffistas would like their real names on the card? If not, please let me know otherwise. If any creative soul wants to put some input into a card, please give me a shout.
I finally caught up to Jess's wonderful review of Spirited Away in Natter/Angel.
I would just like to remind everyone that I am organizing an expedition to see said film this saturday at DC. The theater has easy access of the red line and I am targeting a 5pm showing.
Anyone who would like to see it, drop me a line at CaBil@aol.com
As many of you know, I just moved in with my Mom, and she has only basic cable. While I get UPN and WB, I do not, for some insane reason, get Fox. We're upgrading the cable, but that hasn't happened yet, so I find myself without Fox for tonight's Firefly premier! Meeeeeeeep! Who can help a girl out? Who can tape it and get it to me before next week's episode? Who likes homeade cookies and checks covering the cost of the tape and shipping? Who wants my undying devotion? Please???????? Let me know in Natter and I'll send you my address. Thanks in advance, for being wonderful and all that.
Hey! It's a big New York Times article about Joss! And it's written by my friend Emily! Go read it now!
