I have to agree. That was pretty special. Good Job!

Wil, I realized just this afternoon that we had not seen hide nor tweet of you for several days. I am glad you are starting to feel better now. I thought of you this afternoon when @martinsargent tweeted this link.http://www.myjones.com/limited/wizards. May not be to great to actually drink it but it would be fun to have the bottles. Anyways, hope you continue to feel better.

Wil, I agree this sucks big time. I am just a nobody and I get the stupid spam bots every now and again. There is the one that just RTs everything you say. It makes me feel like one would feel with a younger sibling repeating everything you say. Only you can't wack a spam bot one good time. This does seem to be getting worse instead of better. A lot of the people I follow have been complaining about it. I saw an interesting post on Laughing Squid about a Twitter conference next month. I did not know if you were planing to attend or if you had the time since you seem to be wicked busy as of late. The article can be found on www.laughingsquid.com. I have no idea how to make a fancy link so the world will just have to cut and paste. I would not mind for someone to tell me how to do it for next time. :o) Carrie .

My Dad used to play golf when I was younger and he still plays with his friends on Christmas Eve.(Although I am convinced its just an excuse to drink beer away from the home front while the miracle of Christmas chaos is unveiled by the women folk of the family.) You are right about it being the time spent with the family that was important. The funniest part of our outings was that he used to let me putt for him because I was better at it. I was only 6 at the time. :o) Oh yes, I am so looking forward to everything you have coming out this week. I think I am most excited about The Guild. I wonder if we can watch that in parties like we can with Netflix. I am going to find out.

Wil, I think I recall you personally using a Blackberry but I thought you would like to know there is a Pax app in the app store for Iphone users. Its just basic right now but they said they were going to update it with the schedule soon.

Just think though, You really only have to be able to run faster than your neighbor. Either that, or just trip them. :o)

I love Left 4 Dead. Its one of my favorite zombie games. Wil, are you playing by yourself or in a group? Its way more fun in a party. It seems everyone has zombies on the brain today though. My husband and I had a conversation just this morning about zombies. I am thinking its fresh on everyones mind because there has been a lot of talk about Left 4 Dead 2. It looks great and its by Valve. I am not sure what else a person could ask for. As for your stories, I am really looking forward to reading them. I like reading stuff you write and I am sure it will be great. A thought that just crossed my mind is What would Kirk do in a zombie attack? I bet that would be really funny and he would probably find a way to get a cute chick in the middle of everything. :o)

Wil, I was just wondering if you would be trying to get to PAX east in Boston in March. We are still pondering going to Seattle but it is still a big question mark. I was reading the schedule and some of the panels look really good. I was trying to figure out how to be everywhere at one time. Don't laugh but I want to see Freezepop too. So much to do, so worth it to go.

Two hints. 1. You can change the view to full screen or letter boxed as the case may be instead of looking at the back of your Avatar's head. 2. Change your privacy settings not to show what you are watching online. If you don't the whole wide world of Xbox live will know what you are watching. Guilty pleasure movies are a plenty on the instant que. :o)

Happy Birthday Wil. I hope you have many cold beers and wonderful cake. Lucky you, you get to share your birthday with Geddy Lee. I share mine with Eric Clapton. I hope you enjoy your day. On a side note, Did you happen to notice that the new Xbox Live dashboard changed the way Netflix works? You can watch things as a party, its actually cool. My point is though that one of the things you can watch is the entire season of Leverage. The update does not go live until 8-11 but you can still get into the 2nd wave of the beta. They added a lot of features that improve the way it works.

I was sorry to miss your performance last week but I have a very good reason. I live way the hell over here in Florida! I was just wondering if you ever wander over to the east coast. While I know we have not gotten through this years Pax, friends of mine are already planning for next year. Is there a chance that you would tootle all the way over to Boston for it? I have a snow balls chance of making it to anything cool over in CA for a while. Not for lack of trying I assure you but its just not in the cards right now. Anyways, just wondering. Thanks.

Well, I think its a great title. I often wonder if writers title their book and then write it or write their book and then title it. I have a fledgling writing career and mainly do it for myself right now but I am getting there. I can almost bet you I will have some song titles for titles of my book. The problem is I have a tendency to listen to guilty pleasure music. Guess I won't use any of those for titles else people will know what crazy stuff I have been listening too!

I was thinking the same thing. Good stuff Wil. Perhaps one day you shall write a book about your travels or some such thing. By the by... I have looked high and low for a P.O. Box for you. I would like to send something your way via snail mail. Thanks!

Oh my. I do believe I need that shirt. Good find Sir, Good Find. Wil. I had a thought today while tootiling around town. Did you name your book The Happiest Days of Our Lives after the Pink Floyd song or was that just a happy accident?

I have all these ideas in my head that won't come out. Now that I find myself unemployed, I feel its a good time to explore them. I know I can do it but I just can't make the ideas jump out of my silly head. WIl. I am really grateful for your posts. You make me laugh and make me feel better when I have had a craptacular week. Now, I must return to seeking gainful employment at a place I would probably rather not be at anyway. This habit of eating and needing a roof over my head is just too much work.
