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

Quick change on my poetry reading this Sunday. I'm now reading at 1:30 p.m. Grrr. Argh.

Not here as much as I wish I were


Some people are making a big deal about how Buffy's ratings were "off by a whopping 37%" from last year.

Buffy's normal-sized premiere garnered a 3.9 rating compared to last year's whopping 6.2 for her ressurrection.

But last year *was a media event* you can't compare them. more money was thrown at announcing the switch, the death of Buffy and advertisement to let people know that Buffy had switched networks.

So How does it compare to other season premieres?

In reverse Chronology:
Lessons: 3.9
Bargaining 6.2 (disputed. site below says it averaged 4.3)
Buffy Vs Dracula had a 3.9 rating
Freshman got a higher 4.4 rating.
Anne had a 4.7
When She Was Bad had a 2.9!
Welcome To The Hellmouth had a 3.4

About middle of the pack, if you discount the over hyped S6 premiere.

So, The Buffy ratings are back to "normal"

Ratings are from:

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

I'm going to be in your neck of the woods for both the Angel premiere on Sunday, Oct. 6th, and also Buffy on Oct. 8th.

I want to see all of you! If I can't see you on Tuesday because of scheduling (Looks at Victor) or because of the longass commute (looks at DXM), maybe I can see you on Sunday. Or vice versa.

I don't know who (if anybody) was planning on hosting an Angel premiere - but I'll probably be there.

I think (though this is not certain) that Jon was willing to host Buffy the night I was there.

Anyway, talk amongst yourselves. There are so many New Englanders I want to meet (like Ellen and Nora and TomW and, uh Oh! VW bug) and the only way I'll catch up with all of you is by these gatherings. Uh, and I wouldn't mind playing the Buffy board game too.

Zap2it online has a "The 2002 Showdown of the Network Stars" Again.

Both David Boreanez and Sarah Michelle Gellar have survived the first two cuts.

Last year, SMG was inched out by Gillian Anderson.

there is something to be said for the lyric and imperial attitude / believe that everything is for you until you discover that you are for it

If any Boston-based Buffistas are interested, I'm going to see Aranarjuat at the David Square Cinema tonight to reward myself for the stultifyingly boring day I've had studying VBA. It starts at 8PM. Warning - it's 2hr and 52 minutes long.

Thanks for all the fish.


Pictures of the Trudy-fest that took place in Halifax earlier this month are now available.

There are five albums to peruse, though two of them are named very much alike. There will be more pictures added to the Goth Night album once I get that roll developed.

A couple of you more creative types are sending handmade things. Any idea when I can expect them? No huge pressure, just let me know a target date for completion.

Thanks so much to everyone for their donations, ideas, and support.
