You're lucky you still have your TI. My mom sold mine at a thrift store. And threw away the tapes I was using to write my Double Dragon clone. TI Basic, how I miss thee. OLD CS1!

I'm a bad TMBG fan. I knew young and foolish/ old and foolish was a quote from something, but I couldn't even remember if it was a movie or a video game or what. Very. Bad. Fan.

I was late for school that day, listening to my walkman as I rode my bike to 6th grade. I remember slamming on my brakes and listening closer. I remember seeing the stunned expressions on the drivers of the cars going by, and knowing they'd just heard the same news I had. I even remember Mrs. Stone being mad at me for telling such a lie as an excuse for being late, just before the news came over the intercom. We were a gifted and talented class, so it hit us all pretty hard.

Like they have to. It's aired on CBS, which is owned by the same parent company as Paramount.

Of course, Wil will just tell her "You. Me. Drinks. 8pm." And Sheldon will have another reason to hate Wil. };-)>

:D Proud-dad moments are the best. My son's entering high school next year and he's going to be in the robotics competitions. Proud-geek-dad moments aplenty in my future. :D

Question referring back to the prior Q&A: Did you get to bring Nolan with you to be designated pingponger for you this time?

A large number of us in the Denver area have felt that way for some time, so when the RPGA stopped writing classics, we took over. Character-provided events are alive and well here. :)

Tim's Cascade Style! *drool* Gods, I haven't had those since I left WA and came to CO. Boulder chips are good too, but just not the same.

I just started a thread on the STO forums, too. Hopefully we'll get a lot of creative responses and not just "throw Wesley out an airlock"

Wil Wheaton can take out three Vor'cha with just a runabout. Wil Wheaton defended Starbase 24 by himself, with a phaser rifle. Wil Wheaton disables his personal shield because it's too wussy. Wil Wheaton measures his day by how many Gorn he bench-pressed. An Orion fired a disruptor at Wil Wheaton and the PIRATE'S molecules flew apart. Wil Wheaton was bored on the plane ride to PAX, so he memorized Memory Alpha. Wil Wheaton doesn't need bridge officers.

I'd be cooler if you came to our con. Andy was our second choice, because we couldn't get you. :) We got Sean K. Reynolds (Paizo/ Pathfinder) this year for the same reason.

Dang, and I thought I was cool because I got to have breakfast with Andy Collins and Gwendolyn Kestrel last year. :( Trumped again.

The term you're looking for is "lemon." No, I don't know why. I wouldn't even know what, but my ex was WAY too far into anime.

I love that Nolan's just as geeky as you. I need to get my son to read this one so he doesn't feel like the only teenaged geek on Earth.

I still think it would be a great excuse for you to come onto TBBT again. The guys start playing the game in their birds of prey, sneering at the losers with English names for Klingon ships, when all of a sudden a Galaxy-class cruiser warps in and blows them to smithereens. The last thing we see is Wil's face underlit by the glow of a monitor: "Game over, Moonpie."

Most excellent. That's SO going into a book, I can already tell.

Figures. The one day I neglect to read WWdN is the one day there's a one-day deal. *sigh*
