I can't wait until my kids are ready for Highlights! I loved it, along with Cricket. Right now my daughter gets the Highlights Puzzle Buzz publication, which is, you guessed it, all puzzles! Hidden pictures and sticker puzzles etc. It is so cool for the pre-reader. She loves it!

Just to add my librarian thanks! We do what we do because we love helping people. I work with college students, myself, but with two small children at home, there is no end of curious questions. Julie Alvarez wrote a lovely poem entitled "Why I am in Love With Librarians!" http://www.libraryjournal.com/lj/ljinprintcurrentissue/873295-403/why_i_am_in_love.html.csp Thanks, Wil.

I love my futuremug, and that it's mostly just for me to appreciate. A co-worker saw it and said "oh, that's clever- your mug is reminding you that your tea is hot, so be careful!" I just smiled...

I'm so sorry about your loss. I lost both my cats (almost aged 17) over 4 years ago and I still cry. Riley will need your hugs to help her adjust as well. She does know her best friend is missing, you are not imagining it.

Ms. Pac-Man is my favorite game of all time! No question, no hesitation. I remember riding my bike to the 7-11 to play as a kid. The only place around here that still had a machine is now closed. :( If I knew of a location to play it and drink beer, my daughter might not get that college fund...

I loved this story the first time, thanks for the reminder. (oh shit, have I been reading WWdN for that long?) Don't ever think another book of stories, however slim, won't fly off the virtual shelves! You are a great writer.

Oh, yeah. Riding my bike to the 7-11 to play Ms. Pac-Man in the summer. That's the stuff. I always feel the nostalgia when I do see a rare arcade these days. Thanks for the reminder. :)

Good perspective. Thanks for making me think about it. Maybe it's just because the really loud Christians are the crazies and the nice, normal, live-good-lives types are too busy to run about and beat others over the head with their beliefs. Signed, Fellow-(former)Lumper-of-Christians

Seriously? Since when is peace at Christmas offensive? Or any time, for that matter. Dang, watch out for doves and olive branches.

Wil, I'll read you where you write. Sometimes on bloglines and sometimes here, but always reading it. Love the Better off Dead ref. One of my favorites: I had to buy the guy a new hat. Thanks for all the fun over the years! (and the heartfelt stuff too) aj
