It's like the cover to the best bad romance novel ever. I'm sure the total number of embarrassing Fawkes / Codex fanfic will have mysteriously doubled by morning. Seriously, Wil? Cawkes? You are such a twelve year old. ;)

Weird synchronicity. During kiddie nap time today my husband turns to me and says, "I feel like watching some Next Generation - season 2 or 3?" I left it up to him, and next thing I know, I'm watching "Evolution". Then I wander over here to look at my RSS feeds and...bam! Blog entry about watching "Evolution". It's a pretty good episode. It explores some great themes of morality and personal responsibility, and I also remember being really glad to see Dr. Crusher back in place of Pulaski when watching this the first time. :)

How funny that you mention the time you "spent some time in a shuttlecraft together." I just turned on the TV after reading this . . . and there was "Final Mission", in which Wesley and Picard spend some time in a shuttlecraft. Ah, synchronicity. This was lovely to read. It's always nice when you find out that the actors and writers you admire really are admirable people.

Oh man, I can just imagine the horrible sinking feeling as you sat in traffic with no phone. But hey, maybe you'll stick out in the casting director's mind now -- erm, in a good way, I mean -- going in on the second day of auditions. I'm cheerfully hexing anyone else who auditioned for the same role, because I'd love to see you in a regular role on a new series. :D

You know, the best thing about this post for me was catching it on the LJ feed with a banner ad at the bottom that reads in big, bold black letters: I'M POPULAR AND YOU'RE NOT. It just made me laugh, in light of how worried you were about coming across wrong. :D

I'm loving the Nerf Herder reference, too. That song was just on during the lunch request hour on my local radio station the other day. :D Now I'm going to send this to my hubby and destroy his productivity for the day, too. Woohoo!

Wil, you seriously have the babiest baby face ever. Why are you surprised at getting carded? :D I get carded in pretty much any situation in which someone might consider checking ID, and I'm tickled pink every time it happens. Maybe women have a different perspective on looking young? Maybe it's just me. :)

This was a hilarious read (you didn't even have to be there). Nolan's reaction was priceless! Maybe a lightweight piece of plastic in the bottom of that basket would help? Just something to spread out the load and prevent the new soda from making a sudden bid for freedom. ;)

Just listened to the keynote, and it was every bit as awesome as I suspected it would be. Way to go, Wil! Speaking as someone who's been both an MMO GM and a public relations rep in the gaming industry, I love that the main theme of your speech can be summed up as "gaming is a social exercise, so don't be a dick." Both players and uptight anti-games lobbyists alike can benefit from that message. Thank you!

How funny is it that there's already been a barrage of comments from the female readers screaming, "Hey, I like lasers and robots too!" :D (Yes, including me.)

Considering that PAX outgrew its original home and has now moved into the very large Washington State Convention Center, AND the estimated 30,000 attendees -- I'd say 200 books would probably be a safe bet. Even the very first year the place was constantly packed, despite a tiny exhibit hall (we exhibitors were crammed in there like sardines, even though there were only 10 companies showing games) and maybe half as many cool activities as they have planned for this year. From open to close each day there was a flood of people crowding the halls. The thing that really struck me funny about that first year at PAX was that the restrooms were reversed: the women were coming and going with no problem and the men had a line halfway down the hall.

umm, "some band" that Mike Nesmith was in in the '60's is none other than The Beatles. Sheesh. I sure hope you're kidding! :D
