The graphic looks rather .... familiar... speaking of which: (I Twittered this to you but God knows if I sent it right!) My boyfriend found that Dark Dungeons you were looking for - if you like he can scan it for you so you can see it again! Xerox works too. He's got every last one of those things. The WHOLE series. He found them in an old box in his house bundled up. We read them on our last trip to his hometown. It was interesting to say the least. At any rate, let me know.

They did not give me a sticker or a pin but when I heard the news at roughly 10PM or so (I am too in awe to remember) they gave me something much more meaningful. Hope.

I am so elated by the fact that you diversify your work so much - it not only keeps it exciting for you, I am sure, but it's a really good example to those pursuing careers in the arts about maximizing the entire skillset radius. So awesome!! I hope you sleep better. Getting the brain to chill out is so tough sometimes. Soemtimes it's as simple as the weight of the blankets that can keep me up at night - if they are too lightweight I cannot sleep as well. Weird. @ Wil's brain: NO songs and the temperature in the house is FINE!

I am SUPER late on this post b/c my computer at home was acting up (or my ISP was) and I was not able to get the frackin thing to POST! ANYHOW.... The Jewish mother in me would recommend (doing a veg. version that is) the following: A boiled soup with plenty of dill, garlic, onion, carrots, celery, thyme, a pinch of black pepper, salt to taste. You can use a vegetable bouillon cube to fatten it up a little bit. Warn the family you might smell a little after you eat this. You can add some black eyed peas in there or lentils to make it more of a meal, but definitely enough broth to clear out that junk. As a singer, I also recommend drinking the following mixture to help relieve some of the pain (and you can first steam yourself by holding the cup under your nose and inhaling the vapors of this mixture slowly before sipping) OK - here it goes. It will NOT taste good: In a mug of boiling water drop -- 1 bag of Celestial Seasonings Lemon Zinger 1 bag of Celestial Seasonings Peppermint 1 regular (yellow bag, not sugar free) Ricola drop and if you want, 1 licorice lozenge from Smith Brothers The steam will feel good in your nose. Sipping slowly will feel good on your throat and may even help loosen the junk. It will NOT taste good. But it's helped me many a times and I used to be prone to NASTY upper respiratory infections. I hope this helps! Though the ZPak will likely knock out that sinus evil quickly. This is more of a soothing and boosting remedy than anything else. Lotsa love from Boston!

Isn't it hysterical that we ALL still call them Footie Pajamas or Pajamas-wid-da-feet hahhaa! Carters should just MARKET them as such. That is the most awesome story ever. I love kids; can't wait to have them. They paint our lives in such a new way.

WOW!! Never saw you with a beard -- Works for you! I have to say I love the dichotomy of this picture - the rather intense expression posited against the book title :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAN! I am so crazy busy I forgot what day I was on. HAVE A GREAT ONE!!! Eat lots of cake and ice cream (or iced confection if you are vegan) and play and jump around (allowing some time to pass between the cake and the jumping) and have a darn good time! AND.... Your listing of the lentils and kidney beans dinner plan - MMMMMMMM I am a legume freak. I am not veg. but I might as well be - It's how I eat most of the time. My boyfriend is NOT such a bean and tofu fan - he's like "ahhhh Darcie food" when I present him with couscous and lentils dressed with a little olive oil, lemon juice, and basil with a big giant green salad on the side. :) He always ends up liking it.... hahah!

HI Wil! Congrats on ANOTHER book - how cool!!! I am wondering if you are going to do a live chat now and then - particularly for those of us authoring books - I am writing one on a topic that is kind of unexpected. As a music business consultant, everyone expects I will write a book for that! Maybe someday but there are a lot of music business info books so I don't feel so pressed :) I am writing a book called WHERE THE HUSKIES GO and it's about my life with my Sibes- kind of a hybrid memoir/helpful guide through storytelling for new or prospective Husky adopters. I would be super interested in talking to you (or anyone else here) about independent routes (or more mainstream) publishing outlets and other helpful hints. I know your time is super precious but thought I'd ask anyhow!

I will be one species member who will always do my best! My concern is this: there are a lot of conflicting guidelines about what is best for the environment... and what is good for landfill minimization may be less good for emissions problems and so on... I really hope that somebody (or a group of somebodies) can come up with a cogent book (or eBook!) on the pros and cons of each environmental decision so that we can determine how we can best help in our daily choices... for example ORGANIC EATING Pros/Cons, PLASTIC RECYCLING GUIDE and Pros/Cons to each method. You know of any resources like that? If so, please post them because I think a lot of people try to do things but then they learn that what they were doing may have been harmful. It's like eating eggs. Good for you... NO- BAAAAAAD BAAD! Oh, wait, no, .... not so bad. Hahha! I was SO freakin' annoyed when I separated out all my recycle items and then saw the town drop all those bins into the big regular garbage truck AAGHFFFHHFRRRRRMMP!!! Guess it all comes down to money... Ratfinks.

Darcie's musings on your post: I LOVE the turtle - I want to take him home! **** I am jealous of your tan! **** I am so glad the media was GOOD TO YOU - honestly, what have you ever done to them to be stinko? They better be nice to you! I am going to buy People for the first time in about 5 years :) ***** Guava jelly sounds GOOD. I like the fact that you are taking your time getting back into the groove of the real world. ***** Rick Astley - where the heck is HE! I love Rick Astley and I am not ashamed! I almost FAINTED when I found David Glasper (from Breathe) on myspace and he put my band in his top friends at #2 - HOLY MOSES! Wow. You can't believe that feeling. Ok. I am going to stop. But seriously when I met my boyfriend James he and I had a great laugh when Rick Astley came on in the restaurant and he said "Wow. Rick Astley. Michael McDonald's voice, Howdy Doody's face" WOW. OMG. I kinda gave him a teasing what for on that one. I love and adore Rick Astley!... but that sh*t was funny. ***** The walls have eyes. ***** Hello to the family!

Thanks for the late pass on this post - it's been a crazy week! OK this is super doof-a-licious but we didn't get to see SBM until it came onto video because we were too young at 12 and 10 to see it in the theater... Wah! So when it came to video AND I was finally able to convince my mom we should watch it it became iconic for my best friends and myself - in particular me and my friend Alex. A couple years later, she ended up moving to another town kind of far away and we had the whole summer before she was leaving (Hey - six towns away is FAR when you're 15!) So we ended up having what we STILL call the Stand By Me summer. We would listen almost exclusively to 50's music -notably the soundtrack, and reminiscing about our friendship and so on and so on. Her last day on our block, we drank Cokes in glass bottles and made a pact (it stuck - we're 34 and 32 - OK yes I just reminded all of us how old we are - and are still best friends). And this is the super geekiest of all - that night the sky looked like the blue faded huing in the poster for the film which we refer to (still) as the Stand by Me sky. I know this is super sentimental but I thought I should let you know about it anyhow. That film had such an impact. I honestly wonder if it took a group of boys coming of age to help unify friendships of girls coming of age??? I wonder if boys who watched that film took the same things away as we did? This was super cool of you to post - particularly the process as a young person and actor that this role took you thru. You are so freakin' cool, man.
