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

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.

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.

To understand what happened at the diner, we shall use Mr. Papaya! This is upsetting because he's the friendliest of fruits.


Hey. I posted this before, but here's a reminder: I'm reading poetry Sunday, at about 4:40 p.m., at the Hampshire College Poetry Festival. There's readings all day long, starting at 10 a.m.--including Patricia Smith, Sage Francis and the very funny Ryk McIntyre.

Hampshire College 893 West. St. Amherst, Ma.

All events take place on the lawn fronting the Johnson Library. (Rain locations located across campus.)

All welcome. Admission is free.


I'll be bopping down to the Cantab Lounge, in Cambridge, MA tonight to see my friend Ellyn Maybe read. Ellyn's the author of two books (including one published by Henry Rollins!) and was named one of ten poets to watch in the 21st Century by Writer's Digest. The reading starts at 8 p.m., if anyone wants to stop by.
