"... I took a nap before meeting Kate Hewlett and her friend for dinner, which was -- I am not making this up -- ..." I totally expected you to describe her who her friend was at this point for some reason, which made me laugh, thinking her friend was a tofu hotdog, or dressed as such. Am I the only one?

I'd love to see that guy do overviews of all the shows I watch right before their new seasons start. By the time some of them come back for new seasons I've forgotten half of what went on in the previous season, but I don't have time to rewatch all of them.

It is the only way to be sure.

My school was watching it on TVs as well. When it blew up I remembering thinking, "I don't remembering seeing it do that before." I couldn't process what had happened for a second. It just didn't enter the realm of possible. Then then it hit me. That was the moment some innocent part of me died. I finally understood the world. I mean, actually understood bad things could happen. I was 9 years old at the time, so this was a big revelation.

With Evil Wil being such a dick, I think good Wil Prime should get to be on a show, well, not being a dick. Maybe he could help someone find true love? Well, something to balance the karma wheel.

The way the last season ended I was wondering if it was a series finale or something, so I'm double glad to hear that a) is is coming back, and b) one of my favorite guest stars will be on early in the season, and finally, c) one of the great writers from my other favorite show is joining it. Seriously, there's nothing but good news in your blog post, Wil!

Hell yeah to that Psych idea!

I'd rather see him on Warehouse 13 and Sanctuary. I'm sorry, but Stargate: Soap Opera is a disgrace (I thought the newest episode was getting better, and then it jumped right back into all too familiar territory in the last few minutes). Caprica might be okay, it at least has potential, though I've only watched the 2 hour pilot so far and haven't kept up with it. Wil, you should put up a poll so we can vote on what we'd like to see you on most. Burn Notice, the shows Cal and I mentioned, plus the ton of others I'm sure I'm missing that you'd be a great fit for, too. It might sound ego driven, but remember, you didn't ask for it, your fans did, and I'm certain I'm not alone, so it wouldn't be arrogant at all. Might even be surprising to see the results!

I thought you should start it off "My name is Evil Wil Wheaton..."

So do they give you a schedule with your script so you know when to be where? Something like from noon to 1 pm Monday we'll be shooting this scene, and you're in it, so you'll need to be there, but from 1pm to 4 pm the scenes have these actors in it, and from 4 pm to 6 pm it's your scene again, etc?

I thought that link was going to be about how you'll see actors in a show, and then you'll change the channel, and here they are in another role, and then the next day you see them again in something else, which happened the other day with Diedrich Bader (I didn't know his name was spelled with just one "a") and I thought Meinhof was someone else in the Drew Carey show. And since the article doesn't seem to know the origin either, perhaps I'm right after all. 8^)

Any idea what the ticket prices will be this time?

I'm glad you didn't rewrite it. It shows how you've grown as a writer, and that's an important thing. Since you grow a little each day, it can be really hard to see that growth, but it's there.

What is roleplaying but creating oral fiction anyway? The difference would be one person deciding everything rather than a committee. Maybe not quite as much fun in some ways, but still very natural.

Don't feel too bad, I do keep up on these things (to some extent) and I hadn't seen it yet.

Dork Tower is a great geek comic, I'm glad to hear the news.

It both is, and isn't.

My wife and I finally did the Medieval Times show in LA a few years ago and I didn't really know what to expect, but it was an entertaining event. The people in line in front of us were a younger crowd, and their conversation was rather funny. Though I can't recall exactly what it was (old age getting to me maybe?)

Holy cow, what aren't you going to be on this year? Criminal minds, Leverage, TBBT, PAX... I'm sure I'm missing at least one or two more in there. Before I know it you'll be on Sons of Anarchy and CSPAN!

I just checked and it is $22 plus shipping, which doesn't seem too bad to me. At least until you add in the travel from Portland... 8^(

That's interesting. I found this zombie infection simulation years ago: http://kevan.org/proce55ing/zombies/

And here in Portland they can't understand why you aren't going faster than the car in front of you. When my wife and I took a trip down to southern California a few years ago, and while driving through northern California I was amazed that people actually let me change lanes. I mean, they actually made extra room when I put my turn signal on, rather than closing ranks to keep me out. It was like on of those places you hear about in books. I think they're called Utopia or something. I couldn't understand what was happening. I was afraid I had taken a wrong turn, or fallen asleep at the wheel and drifted off to dreamland. And then we got to LA and I knew I was home. Everyone was unhappy about the multiple lanes closed for construction, there was an overturned semi in the right lane, etc. This I knew, this I understood. I was home. Almost.

That's why we just nicknamed him "Acehole".

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has trouble with "episode". I also seem to have trouble with completely forgetting to use the word "not". I know I thought the word when I wrote the sentence, but when I double check (half the time this is after I hit "send"), it isn't there. Completely changes the meaning of what I was trying to say. Very frustrating.
