I have to say that the principal at my kindergarten in Woodridge, IL (42 years ago) was Mrs. Batman(Or at least that's what I remember her name being.). Also, more recently, friends of ours gave their baby the muggle name of Alexis but the cool name of Armageddon. I can't say that I've seen her birth certificate but they both agreed that was her name.

I use TOS Communicator sound for my text messages, too. It is really effective in cutting through any background noise and I know for sure, in most mundane situations, that it is my device. I loved this exchange. Good thing that you changed the name to protect Jonathan Frakes.

The Alamo Drafthouse management has already replied up above, FTW! Now I wish there was one of those near me in Pittsburgh, PA.

You should be proud and that is pretty awesome. And that something in the eyes thing seems to be electronically transmitted. I approached parenting our daughter in much the same way. I wanted her to be someone I would want to have as a friend. And I feel pretty successful at it, and every now and then when someone says something to us about how awesome she is, I get something in my eyes, too.

"I felt like the very best parts of being at a con were all happening on the boat, which just happened to be in the middle of the beautiful ocean, instead of at a hotel by the airport." Thank you for this. I think that key here is that we as nerds/geeks socialize in our own unique ways and need activities toward that end and the chance to opt-out/recharge when needed. Now I just have to convince my husband it's worth spending the $$ for that.

I told my husband I really want to go on the cruise next year. I've been curious about going on a cruise for a long time. My husband isn't as interested but I'm pretty sure this is the kind of thing he would enjoy the most --as long as there was some bicycling involved which I think there can be. Depending on the dates, it's likely we could displace a couple of Snorks on the next one.

I'm so wanting to go on the next one. It looked like a lot of people were #FuriouslyHappy. Do you suppose you could ever get @TheBloggess to come? Maybe have a red-dress dance?

Thank you for being a male celebrity who is willing to speak up against Chris Brown's behavior and violence against women in general.

I tuned in from work and so had to quell my squeesplosion! This was very good for cell phone video on the spur of the moment. Everyone else has given you about the same feed back I would have. The camera did focus on the Stone Ale bottle cap but you didn't hold it in place or it just didn't keep focus long enough so I could actually tell it was a gargoyle. I'm old enough to remember black and white tvs and antennas and putting foil/metal coat hangers on to get the right signal. Realizing that you were doing this live while I was working (yeah I was working) was just beyond cool for me. I had a living in the future moment. (And I work in IT!)

Sorry that this happened to you. I know larger celebrities have security/handlers in part for this sort of situation. I'm glad you had Felicia Day. :-) I hope that some day our paths intersect at some acceptable time.

I read your blog every time you post something. I just don't comment all the time. And yeah, I did notice that you were not posting as often but life is like that, especially when you're away doing guest characters on cool tv shows. I always hope you are secretly composing future blogs for when the episodes air since I really like to read what you experienced but couldn't tell us at the time. Please don't ever doubt that someone wants to read what you write.

Wil, you take me back to that time when arcades were those darkened store fronts in the mall where I could spend hours playing pinball and then later on Pacman, Space Invaders and Galaga. In fact, when we were meeting friends to see the Thor movie at the theater, I found a video game there with the "classics" and spent a few quarters playing Galaga in it. But what you also reminded me of was that fateful day in January of 1985 when I watched my future husband put two quarters into the broken Star Wars machine (the one with the bright vector line drawings and you piloted Luke's X-Wing to blow up the Death Star). I was just too late in telling him that it was broken so he played it anyway, and not too bad and we talked a little after that and talked some more and the rest, as they say, is history. Thanks for that memory!

Also, condolences on the loss of Nicole Eggert.
The blog: http://cynography.blogspot.com/
Came via Wil's blog. My neighbor two doors down has chickens (in a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA no less) and he once handed me two handfuls of eggs he had just collected. (Our properties border at the back and I happened to be back in our yard at the same time he was. I know I had poached eggs for a few days after that. I now have another friend who sells eggs and I've purchased eggs from her. (We meet in a parking lot of a store where she goes when she's in town once a month. We laugh at what this must look like to anyone watching.) I will eat store bought eggs (cage free at least) but I really prefer fresh. Here's a link to her blog in case you are interested.
That person is awesome and should definitely be rewarded.

I'm speechless. I had to watch this over and over again. I think I may have to buy this ornament for my brother. I haven't been in a Hallmark store in ages so I didn't even see this. It wasn't until I saw the button pressing comment on here that I realized that you hadn't dubbed in the music and it was part of the ornament experience. And, of course, you have to make it look like they're fighting, the music demands it.

This is one superb piece of writing. It is so evocative! It put me right on my parents back porch in the summer looking at the clear night sky and camping where there is very little light pollution and lying on my back looking at the sky again and cresting a hill in the car on a cold winter's night --the kind of cold that makes it impossible for there to be any clouds in the atmosphere and the stars are the sharpest points of light ever and the sky is the blackest background and it seems like it never ends. Thank you.

Hey, I read your blog as often as you post! But I've commented before so I probably don't count. Because you are kind enough to twitter when you post and you have almost 2 million followers on twitter, I bet a respectable portion >50% actually read your blog. I have a friend who has had two Great Danes so I know exactly the lope you're talking about. Also another friend say that when dogs are doing that sniffing about, They are checking their "p-mail". Just had to share that.

Awesome! I shared this with my hubby, too. I had avoided viewing the original HPOA girl, but did to understand the depths to of Storm's humor!

A breath of fresh air in the midst of an IT rollout that had me working all weekend. I came home "early" vowing not to touch a keyboard until work in the morning but I'm glad I did. I got to use the other side of my brain and contributed a bit to the story. Thanks!

I really appreciate that you not only told LeVar how you felt, you shared this with us. And while I'm at it, entries like this are the reason that I keep coming back to read you. Thank you for being you and sharing that with us.
