The Swanson Remains the Same

Friday is the 39th birthday of Kristy Swanson, who is sort of the George Lazenby of the Buffyverse. (I know that gets the timing wacky--I'm not saying Sarah Michelle Gellar is the Roger Moore of Bondania [is there a Bond world one-word term? Bondistan?], so save the comments. I don't mean to shake or stir things up; I'm just jossing with you.)Swanson's greatest moment since slaying Teutonic Blond Bad Boy Rutger Hauer (he once ripped Jennifer Jason Leigh in two, the bastard, and I don't care if it was only in a movie) was winning "Skating with Celebrities." She might not be a celebrity, but she played one on the show along with Todd Bridges and Debby, er, fellow Playboy spreader Deborah Gibson--we're talking top drawer talent here. Not only did Swanson win the contest, she won her partner, proving you can be hot on ice--Lloyd Eisler left his wife for her.Who can blame him--she had dated David Spade.

I'll go with Bondsylvania.

Personally, I would have liked it if Kristy Swanson played a bad lady on Buffy proper. Or a corpse. Something along those lines.

WV: "spolo," which I think is a new Volkswagen vehicle.

That last season of Angel, when they wanted to have Buffy come back for an episode but couldn't make it work with SMG--I was pushing *hard* for the idea that Kristy Swanson should've been given the part.
