Wait, is this real-world child support, where the money goes to buy food for the kids, or MRA fantasyland child support where the women just buy Ferraris and cocaine? -Jessica

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.

Sprog Poll

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

Okay, Paypal is open.

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.

Remember, remember/the fifth of November/the Gunpowder Treason and Plot/I see no reason/Why Gunpowder Treason/Should ever be forgot.

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

Queen of the Drive-By

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.

Critical essays arguing against Buffy and her universe are welcome, as are fan invested critiques.
