Can't wait to see it. You fit in so well with that show. Two awesome geeky things that are geeky-great together.

I think your teeth are adorable the way they are.

Speaking of awesome stuff that you do, Wil, is there an ETA on the extras from the Happiest Days audiobook that you said you'd make available (for free!) so that those of us who bought the paper/ink book wouldn't feel left out? Thanks.

I love that you said "jimmies" and not "sprinkles." I wish I didn't like sweet things. =)

I'm a total anxiety puppy. And occasional panic attacks. Thanks for being a kindred spirit!

We can't make it this year (we're TWO hours from the con, though), but will do everything we can to come next year. Do you think you'll be back then, too? It was great to meet you last year.

Met you at last year's Phoenix Comicon! You were as awesome as I thought you would be. I wish I could go this year, but alas, other obligations are keeping me at home. I hope you have a great time, and I really hope you come back again next year. I will be there next time! Oh yes I will!

I've had the same experience, Wil. Not with writing (though I'm sure it would apply to that if I tried to write more often), but to everything in my life that I have to get done. When I get to bed at a decent hour, I get up at a decent hour, and more gets done. Simple as that.

Don't worry about living up to your reputation. Some of your reputation on here is that you're human, you're just a regular person who has had great opportunities and has marvelous skills. So if you ever think you mess up, it just makes you more human. It's like you run a support group for us geeks here. Thank you!

@falnfenix - Thank you thank you thank you! I've wanted grownup sized footed PJs for years. Wil - Every post you make just adds to your awesomeness. You should tour the country having playdates with kids under age 10.

I know exactly what you mean about hearing your own words back from your child. My daughter is 7 and often spouts wisdom back at me! It always makes my day.

You definitely get Extra Geek Points for referring to Venn diagrams. Those are my favorites! And I, too, would be in the middle of the diagram with you. Thanks for the link!

I totally concur about the importance of reading, and loving to read. I'm quite busy and rarely have time to read during the day, but every single night before bed, I read. My kids (aged 7 and 4) have caught on and read often, too. My 7 year old daughter reads whenever the opportunity presents itself, though not always at bedtime. My 4 year old son, though, who has been reading for about a year, not only reads whatever he can, but he now has a bedtime ritual that involves reading several of his books. Makes me beam with pride.

Let us all know if you'll be heading down Route 66 again next year. We can all come out and wave as you drive down the road! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your last Route 66 road trip experience, since you drove through some areas that I've driven through so many times. Sending positive family outcome vibes your way. You wouldn't be who we all know and love if you didn't put your family first.

We just saw you in January in Phoenix! I wish you had had these then. I would have bought one in heartbeat. Any chance you'll change your mind and print enough to sell online? Those of us that can't get to another event on your tour this year would certainly buy them up. I especially want to read your ACME script.
