Dinner With Joss Whedon....
Words cannot describe my geeky shame at how much I want THIS.

It's probably a good thing I haven't recieved my advance money for my UK deal yet. Otherwise I would be tempted to do something delicious, charitable, but profoundly financially unwise....

Do it!

It goes to a good cause and 10 years from now you'll remember the dinner, not the lack of a few thousand dollar.

Maybe you can work out a deal to name a character in the next book after him as a trade for dinner with him.

You should definitely try. Nothing wrong with the good ol' college try eh?

It's for the children Pat, for the children...I like 42one's idea. Offer the idea of a cameo appearance for him :)

Over $8,000 for one meal and a poster?!? Now I'm no banker, but isn't that a little off-balance.

Though I suppose you would say Joss Whedon's personality is worth the $7,950 extra you're spending...

I don't see it, but then, I've never had that much money in my posssesion. Ever.

You should offer him $8,001 with a signed copy of your book. If he's not a fan yet, he will be after he finishes reading it.

Keep playing at the fame game, and you may not have to win a contest ... who knows who you'll get to rub shoulders with in future?

I think you should auction yourself for charity (in a respectable manner, of course). Maybe Joss Whedon is already a fan... maybe he'll bid on YOU!

Of course, a plan like that could backfire magnificently. Who knows what weirdo could crawl out of the woodwork, mortgage their house to win the bid and fulfull their wildest stalker-fan fantasy? Got money for private security?

Maybe you should just send Joss a signed copy of your book.

No no, sending Joss a signed copy of your book is too direct. here is a much better plan:

send ME a signed copy of your book, and this will result in... [mutters incoherently]... and thus you would almost certainly get a dinner with Joss Whedon.

(well... its worth a try, right?)

Aaaaiiieee! That is awesome!
It's for charity, Pat! I am sure it is tax deductible or something! *Squeals* How cool would three hours with Joss Whedon be? I bet cecrow is right though- before too long Joss will be knocking on your door telling you how much he enjoys your work. ;-)

or maybe someday he'll wander across the small shout outs to his creative works that you dropped inside of yours...

Well I just finished the orgasm that is Firefly. Best show I've ever seen in my entire life and I'm pining for more. I want it, I need it, I crave it. I fell in love with each and every character, I just want someone to pick up the damn show and continue it. Suffice it to say I'd take this offer if I had the cash.

I agree with you. Three hours with Joss Whedon would be so cool! Alas, you are not the only one who could not afford the privilege. Heck, I couldn't afford to buy a handkerchief for the person in charge of helping Joss blow his nose at this point...

Ok, I'll admit, that was gross.

@ mathas
I couldn't have said it better myself. Firefly is definitely a mental orgasm.
