There are people who feel an entitlement to touch you? That's a tiny bit scary, not just the germs thing. If they want to reach out, there are a lot of politicians lurking around right now. Probably not at the con, though. But maybe. I guess it's flattering in a creepy way "Must touch ... Wheaton ..." rofl

Happy Birthday, Wil, and Happy Don't Be a Dick Day, to us all. This was a wonderful story, and reminded me so much, not of something my Dad told me, but of what he showed me every day i knew him, and what I told him about a week before he passed away (he couldn't speak, lung cancer, oxygen mask, big mess of nasty). But my Mom had told me that he didn't think he had been a good dad, away so much when we were young, with his work in the army. So my last conversation, more or less at him, was what a great dad he had been, how proud I was of him, because of just the things you listed above. Living them day to day makes the most impact of all, but sometimes it's important to say the words.

That's pretty spectacular. Congratulations on getting to do that. Was this the really cool thing that you were doing so you couldn't go to Comic Con? (at which point I just gave away that I don't really know when that was).

So if the next time Ryan goes by and that lady is wearing Andorian dilly boppers, are you saying you are partly responsible? Seriously, he does have the Wheaton Way With the Word.

G'Lord, I hope you didn't sprain anything! I love Len Penzo's site, and this is relevant to this post. You might appreciate this. Apart from writing a financial blog, Len is also a Kings fan: http://lenpenzo.com/blog/id12985-i-just-made-the-biggest-impulse-purchase-of-my-life-but-its-ok.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+LenPenzo+%28Len+Penzo+dot+Com%29

2012 great year! Congrats on your great opportunity, and glad everybody seems to be keeping it into perspective. Speculation abounds that this will be another great opportunity to enjoy your work. Speaking of ... You teaser Wil Wheaton! I have been trying and trying to buy a copy of The Happiest Days of Our Lives, but even your link here will not let me buy one. I'm not really in a position to pay $80-$90 for a copy (Amazon marketplace) or (gasp - choke) $200 (eBay). Are there any plans to release another printing, or an e-book edition? (a lot of people complain about ebooks, but they never sell out ;-D ) Thanks, and all the best with your secret project!

The thing that always amazes me is that something that can seem like a disaster in your life (something you view as a bad decision, or losing a job, or fill in the blank bad thing), when you look back, you see has changed your path. It's diverted you from where you thoyught you were going, sometimes in ways that horrified you at the time, and then more and more you find that you're in a good, great, amazing place ;-D Wil, I saw this happening to you over the course of the events in your books which I just recently finished reading. I am so pleased to see this post, and that you are doing all the things you love. Thank you for sharing your joy!

A couple of interesting books I recently downloaded, looking forward to diving in. I don't know if they make sense here. I don't design games, just love them, and who isn't interested in fun? Well, my sister, but who else? "Critical Play - Radical Game Design" (MIT Press) http://mitpress.mit.edu/catalog/item/default.asp?ttype=2&tid=11870 "A Theory of Fun" Will Wright (O'Reilly) http://www.theoryoffun.com/index.shtml
