I'm kind of embarrassed to admit it, but I was genuinely scared when I saw Rorschach walking. I really admire the hell out of Alan Moore, and I'm really torn as far as my thoughts about the movie, in light of reading his thoughts on it so many times. Part of me wants to respect the man's feelings on the matter, but then the other part of me sees him not grant movies the same respect that he demands for comics (that is, that each medium can do things no other can), and I get disappointed and sad. I'm way excited for the movie though, and I'm certain I'll get in on the first showing offered.

From my husband: "Oh my god, is that Neckbeard the Clown? He's gonna molester him some children, honey!" I'm afraid I can't reproduce his gleeful tone, though.

Sir, not only were you horribly, skin-crawlingly icky, you were so bad that when we finished the episode my husband turned to me and said, "Can we go look at Cute Overload now? I need some happy." Fantastic job, in other words. I really look forward to the rest of your blogging about the experience, in order to help drive Wicked Bad Naughty Evil Wil out of my brain.

Wil, I have a favorite professor who says that with writing, on some days 10 pages is just the beginning, and on other days one sentence is a full day's work.

"simply because this technology is, to them, indistinguishable from magic." You realize of course, that this makes you a wizard?

You know Wil, I honestly can't decide if I'm more disgusted with Obama or the many people I've talked to who don't know and don't care about this bill/issue. That freaks me out. How the hell do I live in a country where breaking the law five ways to Sunday is not only okay, but gets you re-elected?

After I read this post, I looked up that book and realized that it's the same one Neil Gaiman had such high praise for. I downloaded it at around 11-11:30PM. I finished it just before 6:30AM, only stopping for a short D&D session, during which I burned a copy for my sister. And you know what I love as much as that book? That I can thank you, Wil, for getting me to read it. You rock.

So, I was reading this story out loud to my husband, and when I got to Anne's line about the d4, he LOLed pretty loud. I finished the story, and he came over and pointed at his palm with a mechanical pencil and said, "See that tiny white scar? That's my d4 story!" Good job, Wil. Thanks for giving me something nice to read to my geeky husband. And, yay tofu!

Wil, I love reading your blog. A lot. But you know who else uses trucks? Farmers. You know what farmers do? Feed you. So, you go ahead and git that specialized labor you do done so that you can continue to live in a city. Just a friendly reminder of one really basic things that allows you to have the life you do. Thanks for all the great info you send my way.

OK, I finally signed up to comment on here. Cribbage did it. Cribbage was always my granpa's game, and I adored him, so naturally it means a lot to me. I was wondering, is it a rule in your family too that you have to rhyme counting out your points? Is it in mine. Like, "two plus two's four and there ain't no more" and other silliness.
