I finally started watching this show this summer, catching up on all the episodes, and then it was cancelled- it's sort of like when you made a new friend at grade school, only to find out their family was about to move. I love the show and the main actors are all fabulous, and it is so exciting to see you performing as something that is, again, totally different from your best-known roles and even really different from Fawkes on The Guild. I would love if there was a movie, a musical, a movie musical theme park, or anything from Eureka after this. If there isn't, I guess we'll just remember it as this one little perfect show...I'm also excited that there is a whole season coming we haven't seen, and hoping there was as beautiful an ending as I want there to be.

That long? I've been reading for about 7 or 8, then. I'm glad you stuck with it, though, and I'm glad I've kept reading. As for MetaFilter, their webdesign hurts my eyes. So there.

I only really just started to watch this show, starting with Season 1. It's great, and I haven't even gotten to the parts with you and Felicia Day as guest stars. I hate how all my favourite shows get canceled, sometimes before I even realized they were becoming favourite shows...

Reading this story again makes me think about River and others who had a lifestyle that, as you put it, you "don’t have room" in your life for. It is so sad, and yet I am so thankful that you didn't have room for it, and that you have made so much beautiful work since then. I hope that someday, no one will find "room" in their lives for such self destruction, even though I know that's probably impossible.

Exactly. I plan on going to SDCC next year, and if I do, I'll probably wait in all the same lines because it's worth it to spend time talking with people I admire about things we have in common, as well as telling them I love their work.

As someone who once went to a W00tstock and then stood in line for a good hour+ to get your autograph (not like that is a long time compared to some, I'm sure), I find it offensive that some people decide to break all the rules. You, and others who do awesome things that geeks admire, have a time and a place when you offer to meet fans, and a time when you want privacy like anyone else. I also agree with what you said about that moment- that's what matters, and I've commented on your entries about it before. It was never, for me, about getting your signature. It was about getting to talk to you and others I've met at concerts and plays and cons and getting to actually talk to you because, weird, you're actually people too.

Reading this reminds me that last year when I went to the SDCC W00tstock, not only was each guest who I didn't actually know really nice to me, but for approximately 45 seconds, I got to talk to you and you made me feel like it was super-important that I was there. If you remember (which I admit was unlikely), we talked about Rocky Horror and your blog. I could tell that you were all torn between wanting to go to bed and desperately wanting to talk to each of us in the audience, and that was what made it great. We know (or should) that you all see thousands of people over the course of a con, but it doesn't take much for the people we stand in line to see to either make or break our days(or even months), and last year W00tstock made mine.

Hey, ten years on, if you hadn't changed / switched gears somehow, people would be complaining about THAT. Do what you love, do what you want, want to do what you do, it's what led me and so many others to start reading your blog in the first place.

I wasn't born until 1987, so for a long time this was just an event in history for me. Four years ago, though, my freshman year of college, one of the people in my college's directing class did the play Defying Gravity by Jane Anderson, which is a fictional retelling from the eyes of Christa McAuliffe's daughter. It was haunting, it was beautiful, and I realized that it doesn't matter how many people died, it was a tragic event. Even now I don't know if it hits me the way it hits people who lived through it. Also, this song is amazingly beautiful, though it took me a few minutes to really understand what was happening.

w00tstock was awesome, and everyone was great. It was also great to meet you Wil, and get your picture, and that you never seemed to tired of talking to people, signing things, or getting pictures with random geeks like myself, or telling me that my being in Rocky Horror was "rad". Thanks for an awesome cap to my visit to CA.

Why didn't you dress like this for W00tstock on Thursday? I suddenly feel cheated.

While I'm not sure how recently this actually came out, this week at Target I ran across Sun Chips bags that brighly announced "FIRST 100% COMPOSTABLE CHIP PACKAGE". Yes, that's right. To coincide with Earth dy, they have spent the last year slowly rolling out bags that fully decompose in... Continue reading

Greenopolis.com recently posted an article about Coca-cola's new square bottles, starting quite a discussion about their eco efforts. What I noticed missing in this conversation was the truth about some of their overseas activities. First, a large percentage of Coke's bottling plants are located in the South American country of...

I love Holy Week. Truly, I do- I love the way that each day has a specific meaning, and that we can really sit down and relate each on to the time in the Bible when it happened. And while I'm not too eager to sit around debating how absolutely... Continue reading
The waistband makes the skirt sweeter, flirtier, and more the "milkmaid" that the name channels. Very nice.

First off, I'm on break and stole my camera back from my dad. Success. And pictures in the future! If I had readers, and I don't think I do, I would ask them if they know anyone else left-handed who knits backwards. I knit rather quickly and efficiently the way... Continue reading

What? I have a blog? Since when? But really, considering that on the top of my goals list was reinventing myself as someone who blogs and changes lives through internet activity...FAIL. But no fear- this week I am at home on spring break, so I have plenty of time to... Continue reading

During the season of Lent, our Daily Chapel services at school have spent Wednesdays focusing on the seven deadly sins. Fittingly for me, today was about lust and gluttony. Why fittingly? Well, in my own life, I'm trying with all of myself to be as non-gluttonous as possible, only to... Continue reading

For as long as I can remember, I've had this gift for finding money. Not really substantial amounts, typically, but things like money in my pockets or my dresser that I forgot about, or change on the street, or pennies in my car. Lately, I've been even luckier than usual.... Continue reading
So, here I am. Attempting to blog, attempting to do so while making some sort of difference, attempting to do so while also being interesting. And now for something completely different. My goals, set out earlier this year, reiterated for posterity's sake: This year, I will write 12 short stories-... Continue reading
