I've been here for years, and I'm happy you are making the leap forward to go back. Good work. I also freelance for some Wordpress experts in San diego. Www.binarym.com. I know they create many Wordpress extensions and design wordpress sites.Ask for Matt McInvale or Chris Daley, if you have the need. Not me. I just write copy. :)

Because you can take that to the bank. I have certain skill set I am good at and maintain employment using those skills. It's really not all that different. You find your niche. Maybe some celebrities become trapped in that niche, but so do everyday normal people. I couldn't get a job as a pharmacist with experience as a lawyer. You know?

My grandmother died today. In an unknown number of hours I will be in the middle of nowhere Tennessee surrounded by family- some I love, some I wish didn't posess the ability to vote. Or breed. She wasn't a particularly kind woman. I don't mourn for her yet. I do mourn for my version of your childhood memories. Playing in the creek, the smell of my grandmothers house. The comfort of family, waiting up until you arrived after your long drive from Michigan. The sheer beauty of the area and the strong nostalgia I have for those childhood visits. I'm sad that I may never return. I'm sad I won't get to share this place with my daughter. It's another world I loved, in a way... That won't exist anymore.

Thanks so much! Anne is so wonderful. I'm a little bit furiously happy. And bashful/proud. You know the parent feeling. I saved Anne the bandwidth of the two minute video and sent the one minute video. http://www.telly.com/UR1SL?fromtwitvid=1 Fun fact: it was the first time I'd seen her do this, and was the week she learned to walk. One of my favorites, because of reasons. This face is turning two in just a few weeks. http://lockerz.com/s/226506747

My entorouge as wwebsite as on the internet. ODD FRONT ROW SEATS FOR EVERYONE! I don't know much about space travel, but helicopters are loud! I enjoyed the video. You took time and effort to make this as an apology for missing a con. Who does that? You give more shits about your fans than anyone else I can find on the interwebs. I don't know where you put it all. I hope someday I'm lucky enough to BE at an event you are attending. If I got just a head nod while you walked through the crowd i would squee to everyone's embarrassment. And I would high-five Anne if she would let me. We played some tough rounds at WWF. BTW, you guys make cards against humanity seem a ton of fun - bought it for the husband for father's day and we are pretty excited to crack it open... soon! -Just a fan

Luckily I did have a great English teacher and I went on to get a Journalism degree - I liked being able to write well. I struggled with some of the books in school, but read them over and over in my 20s. Some I loved, some not - but 1984, Brave New World, anything by Kurt Vonnegut... Ray Bradbury... some great stuff. Some great comments here too.

I don't think so. It probably has a web cam or something and speakers so it can spy on me. No way am I letting that thing in my house. So it can terrorize the cat? Watch me while I sleep? Steal food from the cupboards? Who left that dice on the floor? Nice try, Wheaton. (Fry squint)

I live just outside of Detroit, which you may have heard of... this place they call Hockeytown? You can borrow the cup for awhile. Bask in the glory. The Red Wings can share. ; ) They deserve it. Go kings!

Have fun at origins! Even though it is in Ohio... Ha. (Michigan always "looks down" on Ohio.) I will be working or with Claire and will have no chance to make the 3 hour drive. Sadface. I'll be waving to you the whole time though, so wave back!
1 reply
Well, damn. I have Thursday off and Origins is only a 3 hour drive. Dilemma... It's hard to tell from their website what events are going on over the 4 days, or what the schedule is. Not sure it's for me. But I'd love to bring a dice and say hi. Hm. Oh, and I forgot, my D3 witch doctor is named zod. KNEEL BEFORE HER!
1 reply
Yeah, I got into Diablo 2 and am definitely playing Diablo 3 - teamspeak is pretty great - lets us all connect on one game easily. My witch doctor just finished level one with my team the other night too. I like summoning things from the dead to do my dirty deeds! Go get em zombie dogs! Husband is playing the monk and keeps ringing that crazy bell. Good times.

Aw, so sweet! I said the other day that teenagers shouldn't have access to Facebook so the dumb things they say/do aren't plastered on a public forum. I'm sorry the decision you made at 19 was bigger than some of the decisions we had to make as kids, and that it haunted you for so long. You are a good person, wil.

Oh my I'm glad it was good! Youve been gone so long, So much happened while you were away! My parents bought their first house, I found out I have cancer, then I found out its good-bad and I'll be fine, and I painted my bedroom and Claire started talking in three word sentences! Whew! Now you go! Amazeballs. :)

Sheesh, I'm a little surprised at the emotions involved in a simple QR code.... scan it and enjoy, or don't and move along.

Let me sign up for the list to play you too. In your free time AMIRITE!? Anyway, husband and I spent hours giggling with this game, and of course constantly drew penises or put the word penis in somewhere if possible. Because we are twelve. OH, it's my turn! Gotta go!

Do you have everything all set? You know what you want to do on your free days? I'm a travel agent and I love my job so much I always want everyone to be prepared. I have some things I could send you if need be. I did a 14 hour flight to Japan from Chicago once, and it's not comfortable, but there are worse things in life. I have never been to that side of the world, and I have heard amazing things. Enjoy it.

Yes, a surprise sparks McGee bit would be enjoyable. I love the family stories, like the time you trolled Ryan with all the posters from making the bed. Tears, Wheaton. I just hope to someday be at one of these damn things. #midwest-nerd-world-problems.

Awesome! 33 is the best age ever. Yes, I'm 33, what is your point? My lil miss Claire got to wear a social distortion onesie and a pink dress with a skull head on it--she is a girl after all. Sadly, the onesie stage has come and gone. She will be two this summer. TWO. Oh, and her nickname at the hospital before she was born was Axl. The real name was staying secret. Before that she was "lamp." #truestory
