I'd say Stephen King eat your heart out, but I'm sure "petal" could take care of that. Great story Mr. Wheaton.

You have every right to feel as you do and behave as you did, and I think some of your fellow folks in the limelight will be thankful you gave voice to something they must all feel. Those people who accosted you are no better than the stalkers and paprazzi who torment people and I for one wouldn't blame you one bit if you gave them the Sean Penn treatment ;)

Oh, what I wouldn't give for a whole 6 hours of sleep. I've been plagued with insomnia for the past week due to withdrawal from an anti-anxiety drug I no longer need (or want). It leaves me as tired as ever but incapable of finding a comfortable position for more than 30 minutes at a time. I can actually feel my intelligence and sanity slipping away from me a little more every day. As for feline alarm clocks, my master dutifully wakes me around 6am every morning. He tries the gentle approaches first; purring loudly in my ear, or gently nudging my forehead with his damp nose. If neither of those work, he decides to walk around and over me again and again with claws extended. All of this is his subtle way of saying "You know, a bit of breakfast would be lovely. Hop to it." I can definitely empathize with your plight/honour of being the employee of a cat. And as always, please keep on bloggin'!

Still as great a read as ever. Hope you had a happy Canada Day (since you're an adopted son of Canada through your stays in Vancouver) and have a happy Fourth!

I'm in the same boat as you SillyJaime. I live about 800km north of Vancouver and the city I'm in is, IMHO, just the right size. I've considered moving to Vancouver, or at least the GVA, once or twice; usually for better job opportunities or better access to entertainment (concerts, plays, etc). But the thought of spending half my day in the car going to and from work keeps me here. And thank you Wil for showing me the silver lining. I too am thankful.

There is no shame in them at all (the Lego games, that is). I'm proud to admit I'm a 43 year old single man with no kids who happens to own every one of the Lego titles. They are a lot of fun with some subtle bits of humour for the adults who play. As for Counter-Strike, you sick bastard! Just kidding, I'm sure they're fun, I just got tired of getting pwned all the time by kids young enough to be my son.

It's funny, my favourite Stephen King stories are his non-horror stories. In addition to the two you mentioned, his Dark Tower anthology gets re-read often.

I remember sitting in the high school cafeteria, enjoying a bear claw and waiting with friends for our first class. Just before the bell rang, one of our other friends came in and told us that the shuttle had just exploded. He was the class clown type and so we all sat there waiting for him to spring the punchline and when it didn't come we just moved along to our classes. Obviously, it hadn't clicked yet. It was such an impossible thing that we were unable to take it as anything other than an admittedly tasteless joke. Lunch came, and a few of us decided to walk to the nearby mall. At that time there was a Sony Store just opposite the entrance and it had the requisite wall of TVs. There was a crowd in front of the store and we walked up to see what was going on. Just as we approached, the wall of TVs hammered us with the footage that is now burned into my brain; the trail of smoke blooming large and splitting off into two twisting trails. I can't tell you what the rest of the school day was like, it was a blur. We might have just sat in front of all those TVs watching that awful footage, still waiting for the punchline that never came to tell us it was just a tasteless joke. I do remember it was only a couple of days later when the tasteless jokes came in earnest. How many astronauts can you fit in a Volkswagen? I punched the guy who first asked that. Sure, jokes are our way of trying to minimize the pain. But at that time it felt too much like sacrilege.

That was great, you need to talk to the guys at B.B.T. and thinkgeek about making a truly geeky music video for that with the cast of B.B.T.
