I’ve been bumming out about not going to San Diego Comic-Con again (I never go. It’s far away and I don’t fly, or have any money.) I feel somehow like Joss will care more about the fans he sees or meets in person than the invisible ones like myself who will never get to meet him. But this year he’s not going either, because he took the time to have knee surgery. Hurray! Now I don’t feel so left out. Me & Joss, we’re staying home this year. Having our own “comiccon”. I too am reading comics in bed.
It does make me sad though, thinking of Joss getting old & his body breaking down. I am so thankful to him for doing yoga!!! It will keep his body strong, healthy and limber for a while. So he can keep on making brilliant stuff to share with us! But he is mortal, and that’s what bums me out. I worry about him getting into a car crash etc.. If anything happened to Joss, I don’t know what I’d do. Except continue watching Buffy all the time just like I do now.
I’ve been thinking about Joss today (as I do almost every day.) Today was his birthday! And now that he’s all well-known and popular, a lot of people told him “Happy Birthday” and wrote about him. I would like to share a few Happy Birthday pieces from around the Web (instead of writing about him myself, because that would surely come out all wrong.)

Joss, I hope you’ve had the best 50th birthday a person can have. And now, back to watching Buffy!
Joss Whedon was honored at Equality Now!’s event called “Make Equality Reality”, where he gave a speech in which he takes on the word “feminist” and explains why he hates it. Joss could totally do standup. He is doing standup! But he’s setting us straight at the same time. Setting things straight. Setting reality straight. This is kind of why I love him.
I can already tell that I’m not going to keep the promises I made when I started this blog. It would be too boring for me and for you. I don’t want to be a recap & gossip site. I want to be a site that thinks, that reflects. So what I am going to write about is whatever is on my mind, regarding Joss, and hopefully someone out there will find it interesting.
