A Slayer Turns 30

Happy Birthday, Buffy Summers.

I can relate a little.  Well, on the turning 30 part that is.  Not so much on the killing vampires part.  Your birthdays have been less than ideal in the past.  Slayer powers have been taken away, boyfriends went full on evil, or you had family issues.  This is the start of a new decade though.  Consider this - it's a miracle that you are still alive.  I haven't done a proper study, but I'm relatively certain that Slayers don't come with a long life span.  Sure, your injuries might be a little more achy on cold nights stalking graveyards and your staking arm may not be as might as it once was, but you're here.  And you're stronger than ever.

Here's to saving the world a lot... more.

Celebrate Buffy's birthday and the release of the final season 8 comic at these parties!
Dark Horse events around the US
Geek Girl Con sponsored events in Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Francisco

Can't make it to a party?  Celebrate at home!
- Have a Buffy birthday episode marathon.
- Buy the final issue of Season 8 and read it and back issues with a glass of red wine.
- Make red velvet cupcakes.
- Read (or write) Buffy fanfic.  I highly encourage Buffy vs Edward from Twilight smackdowns.
- Give one Buffy the Vampire Slayer virgin an issue of the comic or lend them a season of the TV series.
- Sharpen your stakes... um, what?  Doesn't everyone have one?


  1. I miss Buffy! Watching some buffy on dvd tonight.

  2. Had red velvet cake per your suggestion. Hope I don't get staked.

  3. Great post! I am most definitely watching Buffy birthday episodes tonight.

  4. I have a need to re-watch all of Buffy and Angel, this just solidifies the need. But first I have to finish re-watching the original Star Trek. Priorities and all that...

  5. I just went through all 7 seasons in mid-2010, and NOW lots of people are collectively doing the big rewatch. Ah, well.

  6. I want to re-watch, but like Action Flick - I just did that in early 2010 or late 2009. I mean, it's not like you have to twist my arm to do it though!
