Sure sounds good. Perhaps similar to one of my favorites, Deschutes Brewery Obsidian Stout? Is the "Bronze Dragon" name in honor of the bronze dragons in "The Dragonriders of Pern"?

I heard Robert Picardo was at JPL for the Mars Curiosity landing. You didn't happen to be there, did you? It would have been cool if you were. BTW, where's the video you announced you would be doing for them? Has it been released yet?

I won't be at GenCon, living as I do quite some distance from Indianapolis, but I hope you will appear at a similar event in the PacNW someday. I'll be sure to attend. Two games I highly recommend: Small World and 7 Wonders. Both have a degree of complexity but are learned fairly quickly. Game time is reasonable, too (about 90 minutes). Stay well.

Thanks for the memories, Wil. Each of us has a story exactly like this . . . only different.

This is probably the single-most astonishing, amazing, far-freaking-out photograph I have ever seen. Yeah. It speaks volumes about what is RIGHT with humankind, at a time when we are often overwhelmed with its cruelty, violence, and insolence. You can see the whole world--from Mars.

You HAVE 165 friends??? I didn't think you had that many people following your blog . . . ;-) Happy Birthday, Wil!!! May you always be as lucky as you are today, and may each of us find someone who loves us as much as Anne loves you.

If I use Sculpey to make brain tokens, does that make it Skull-pey?

That is so cool. I love Star Trek in all its forms, but our exploration of Mars is way, way cooler, because it is REAL. I am sure you'll love doing the video. I know I would.

Having been a San Francisco Giants fan for longer than you have been alive, I know of what you speak. Congrats.

I guess TypePad didn't follow the Wheaton Maxim (found at the top of the WWdN In Exile blog), and will now have to bid adieu to one of their coolest bloggers. Their loss.

J. S. Bach said, "Success is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration." Or something like that. And he probably said it in German. Anyway, congratulations on your 'baby.' I can tell you are proud. I admire your humility. Some in your position (too many in sports and entertainment) rarely stop and take a moment to be truly grateful. Cool, guy.

Wil, can you do different voices for the different characters? The reader in the Harry Potter audiobook series did that well, and it makes a difference both in enjoyment and ease of following the action. Look forward to this production.

I started watching this when it was nearly midnight. Thought I might watch for five minutes or so. Ended up watching the whole damn thing. Figures.

I miss River. "Stand By Me" is one of my favorite movies (and the short story "The Body" by Stephen King, is pretty good, too), and every time I see River fade away at the end, I always get something in my eye. Both eyes, actually. I am glad you are still around, Mr. Wheaton.

Please don't hit Benjamin Franklin with a hammer, even if he did come up with the inane idea of daylight savings time. Three reasons: 1. He's dead. 2. You probably don't know where's he buried. 3. I really like Ben Franklin.

I'd go into space whether I got to play with toys or not (but that would be a bonus). I have to be satisfied with seeing the ISS soar by on clear nights.
