I was in an open-air production of Macbeth last summer, and we had a pair of hawks hanging around the stage for the whole run. We named them Malcolm and Donalbain, and they should have gotten top billing. It was just one of those perfect little things that happen sometimes.

I'm 5'10". When I dropped down to 118 pounds, my doctor was threatening IV's. 5'10" and 110? I have a tough time buying that as "healthy."

I had the flu and a high fever on 09/11/01. For days I thought I had dreamed the whole thing.

I am so glad you remembered the word "slow" in "I am totally giving you the slow clap."

Wow, I didn't realize you and I had the same cat! I wonder how he manages the commute between the East and West coasts?

I'm really trying to not buy more books, and dammit, you're not making it easy, Wheaton! I always appreciated that Wesley acted like a dumb kid sometimes. I mean, if they weren't going to have him be as messed-up as most teenagers are, what would have been the point of having him BE a teenager?

The da Gama/traffice comment is exactly the kind I WOULD make! I guess it's comforting to know that in the future, everyone will be just like me!!!

Yeah, I've seen that one, too. And I certainly can't claim to have read every interview by everybody involved in the film, so I may not have the big picture on what's been said by whom.

It's really hard to be objective right now. So much could have gone so terribly wrong with this movie - even the most optimistic of us had every reason to expect abject disappointment. So, the fact that they were able to produce something watchable and fun makes it seem like Casablanca-quality compared to what it easily might have been. There were some elements I would have found profoundly silly in ANY movie. Do they ruin the whole thing? Probably not. But I'll probably revisit that a little later on when the relief that it wasn't Battlefield Earth-quality wears off. Geekery and nitpicking go hand in hand; always have. But the attitude that's been created by the publicity around this movie is: If you don't completely love everything about it, you're just a 100-year-old stick in the mud who resents the fact that it was even made. And that's just not an accurate picture.

During the first airing of "Hide and Q," I was sewing my costume for my first SCA event. The levels of geek are just crashing in on each other.
