In all the excitement of making webcomics and writing pithy blog posts, I plumb forgot about Alyson Hannigan’s 30th birthday yesterday. Alyson, as many of you may know, played Willow Rosenberg for seven years on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. (Which is beloved above all other programs around here, as you may have noticed by now.) Willow started out as a shy nerdy type, super-smart but unsure of herself, only to end the series as a more confident, ultra-powerful, super sexy lesbian witch. THAT’S character development, people. Others may know her as Michelle, the kinky band geek from the American Pie trilogy. And while she may have married Alexis Denisof (Wesley Wyndam-Pryce on, you guessed it, Buffy and Angel), I still love her and will wait as long as I have to before she comes around and admits her love for me. For ME, I say!!!

Oh, sorry, what? I blacked out for a second there. Anyway, happy belated birthday, Aly.

Also, today is Lark Voorhies’ 30th birthday. Lark, you may recall, played Lisa Turtle on the seminal afterschool classic Saved By the Bell. She was most famous for being neither Tiffani-Amber Thiessen nor Elizabeth Berkley nor Leah Remini, (or even Tori Spelling, for that matter) and served to basically teach us all that every group of pals needs a token hot black friend. And also, for being mean to Screech. That bitch. So, I guess, happy birthday to you too, nerd-hater.

It’s alright, ’cause I’m saved by the bell
