Jane Espenson reports that Joss had a pink mesh backpack, which she found adorable. This is from Jane's ongoing online seminars about screenwriting, and it's used to explain the power of analogies in stage directions and dialogue.
"Also, I seem to remember that Joss used to have a pink mesh backpack and I always thought it was adorable. (One of the many reasons why Joss is cool is his unashamed love of things like pink mesh backpacks.) Anyway, part of the glory of the pink mesh backpack is that it can go into the washing machine smelling like a dead fisherman, and when you pull it out again it's as fresh as the silk rose pinned to a debutante's dress."
This is my first front-page post, and I should probably be horsewhipped for choosing this to debut. But it made me laugh, I tells ya, as Jane always does, and that's hard currency for me. (I wanted to mark this as "containing spoilers" but I see now that that would be wrong...)
