I think I had that magazine... This post will make me look twice at my own scrapbooks. In my memory all those awkward years were full of turmoil and anxiety, but there are plenty of photos of genuine laughs and smiles and goofiness - evidence that it wasn't all that bad. Thank you for sharing :)

Limited size of the original image makes photoshopping a bit restricted, but here's an attempt: http://flic.kr/p/ayJZgt

Every time I see this photo of you, I want to draw a red Swingline stapler in on the corner of your table. :)

One of the things I love about John Green's books are the way they convey ideas such as these. Wil, this particular quote reminds me of your blog post about Getting Excited and Making Things: http://wilwheaton.typepad.com/wwdnbackup/2009/11/get-excited-and-make-things.html (link added for readers who might have not read it yet, it's a wonderful post) Quotes and posts like these inspire me to create - thank you for sharing! :)

I watched this unfold yesterday and I've enjoyed reading your input on the matter today. My hope is that if douches are called out on the douchery more often, perhaps it will make the world a better place.

I suggest a pub done up like a D&D tavern, massive tables made out of old barn doors for gaming, wenches serving beer.

It is astounding to me that anyone would treat people that way, but especially you. You - of all celebrities I've seen - probably spend more individual time with your fans at autograph sessions than most other celebrities combined. It's obvious you put a lot of thought and consideration in the time you spend with your fans... and every time I've stood in one of your lines that was the sentiment of everyone around me as well. You are highly appreciated for the effort you put into visiting with us... I hope you won't let a couple of vultures dampen your spirit.

That's the same look that I have when I see photos of myself from that time period! :)

I worked at a portrait studio for 4 years, we all had epic sicknesses run through us over the Christmas season due to the high volume of people we had to interact with, regardless of how careful we were, and how often we sprayed down the door knobs with lysol. You get that high volume of people, it's germ city. You probably already do this, but bring hand sanitizer and use it often. Oh, and at ECCC this past April when you took a photo with me and my daughter, standing up and leaning over the table rather than walking around it was entirely cool - and probably saved time for the people in line behind us. There's no reason for you to get huggy buggy with the crowd. You already interact with fans a great deal from behind the table, and it is appreciated. Do whatever you need to stay healthy - that's my vote.

That's an excellent perspective to have, and I really needed help finding good perspective today. Thank you.

My nieces (ages 18 and 19) recently found the "Do You Want To Date My Avatar" video on Youtube, so I encouraged them and their friends to go watch all of The Guild. It's moments like these where I feel like I'm making a good contribution to the future of Geekery by helping to guide young minds.

That must be surreal to hear yourself in a game. I imagine it's not like a scripted TV show, where the reruns are always the sames lines in the same order. It's also nice to know I'm not the only person who finishes TMBG lyrics when I hear them, before moving on with my original thought.

I'm picturing Ralphy in "A Christmas Story" going blank on Santa's lap and squeaking out "football". I can't tell you how many times I've had that DOH! moment about 5 steps out of a conversation opportunity. When I went to California for my honeymoon 15 years ago, KITT was still there, but he wasn't speaking. I still can't decide if it was some kind of personal violation to take my husband's photo in a sleeping car.

The video does seem to be saying "I'm a Geek, but I'm not... you know... a Geek-geek", which is unfortunate. The concept seems good, but the delivery is almost apologetic. On the topic of Geek in Real Life - I was profoundly proud when I walked my daughter to the bus stop yesterday. Three other moms had already arrived with their kids and were chatting, and as I approached one said "Ooohhh... Jerry Ann will know!" "I'll know what?" I asked. "What's the difference between a DS, and a DSi?" Why yes, as a matter of fact I *do* know. As I discussed the pros and cons of the latest Nintendo hand-held with the moms, my daughter climbed aboard the bus and waved at me through the window... ...holding up the Spock "Live Long and Prosper" fingers (which she just learned how to do after seeing Star Trek in the theaters with us) I'm still glowing with pride, and happy to wave the LLaP sign back right there in the middle of the street.

Awesome! I missed Sunday, but now at least I get to see your performance even though it's not live. It was great to say hi on Saturday though. I hope your trip was fun, your Twitters about beating the toaster in video games were hilarious. :)

Good luck on your next audition, and on your way home maybe pick up a charger that can plug into your car for your cell phone, to help avoid future issues. :)

I remember working in a portrait studio in 1992, and the owner (who had actually been a rocket scientist before opening the studio) told me all about the new technology of digital cameras, and how someday studios will be able to take pictures of clients and preview them on a screen instantly, and how much paper it would save to only print the pictures the clients wanted. It's amazing how time flies.
