Thank you for sharing this, Wil. I'm in tears, unsure what to say. I think I can relate in some ways. I've had one death that I've yet to fully deal with. I also feel terrible now for bringing up River during our interview. Maybe that is just silly for me but had I known this, I wouldn't have brought it up. I think this took guts to share. Thank you, again, for sharing it.

Reading this was fun! And it made me even more excited that my youngest (12 in April) will be attending his first gaming convention this weekend and playing his first tabletop RPG (a friend of mine will be running it, so I know he'll have a fantabulous first experience). I think I just squee'd again for him. I honestly do not know who is more excited that he is attending his first gaming con and will be playing a load of games he's never had the opportunity to play before: my son or me.

Yes, that is Smurfette in my pocket. But that's not why I'm so happy to see you ;)

HA HA! I remember that picture! I couldn't even imagine being in the spotlight like that as a teen. I probably would have vomited. Every time my youngest makes mention of wanting to be "known" and tells me of his latest scheme to become famous, I always cannot help but to say, "Dude. You so don't. It sucks! Privacy is a nice thing."

Quite enjoyed it. Mrs Canton is my favourite! Happy Thanksgiving!

OOOO! More evil evil characters. Most wonderful. Now I'm going to spend too much of my time wondering what show it is you are auditioning for. Break a leg and all that!

Welcome back to Canada! I can't wait for this episode. I wonder what Kid2 will yell at the screen this time. Last time it was a series of, "Shut up, Wil! Don't! OMG! YOU IGNORANT PRICK! I said, SHUT UP!" Then he looked at me and said, "Man, it's a good thing I know Wil is a really nice guy in real life. Because the guy he plays is a dick! And he does it so well, for a moment I questioned why you like him, mom."

Canada will miss you being in her. But I'm sure Pasadena misses you more. I'm glad that you're stay in our lovely country has been a pleasant one. And these videos cause me to gigglesnort to no end.

I'll say it again, that story was all kinds of wonderful. And once again, thank you for your part in raising Lupus awareness. Between you, John and Stephen Fry, it has been a really good month for Lupus, especially considering it is World Lupus Awareness Month. You're a good man, Wil.

This is just too fantastical for words! All I could think while listening to you read this and using all the wonderful voices you used, is: 1) "Man! As a child, story time in Wil's house must have been so fun! His boys are certainly lucky. His grandchildren will certainly enjoy it.", and 2) "Now I want to build a fort in my living room consisting of furniture and blankets and flashlights and fake fire and gather all the "children" to listen to Uncle Wil tell us stories around the campfire!" Loved it!

All week, your timing has been amazing! I was just talking about Lupus. All I can say is thank you from the bottom of my soul for doing this. On behalf of Lupus warriors every where, I cannot say how much this really means. The past little while has been extremely difficult for me... and that is really all I can say about that before I fall apart for the millionth time today. I will be sure to spread this awesomenicity all over the place. You and John are too awesome for words. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

BWAHAHA! Once again, Mr. Wheaton, your timing is perfect. If I ever needed a laugh, right now would be it. My Lupus is currently trying to kick my ass worse than it has in close to 4 years. But now at least I can laugh through my tears. UGH, shut up, Jules! That was wonderful!

And this is why, on days where people on the internet test my patience to the max, I find myself saying, "Internet... I wish I knew how to quit you."

RE: Happy Accident on Dancing Barefoot pic Happy Accident is the name of my Bob Ross velvet painting Total Aside. A conversation which took place earlier between my youngest (11.5) and myself: Kid2: I've come to the conclusion that "Stand By Me" is, and will continue to be, the best movie of all time. Me: You're a smart kid. I think it is so cool that both my boys (oldest just turned 15 on the 8th) look up to you. Totally awesome that they have geeky role models outside of myself. Your trip to your garage has yet again reminded me that I'm not a teen any longer.

Check out the handy-dandy left sidebar. Specifically, "Read My Other Work", where there are links to LA Weekly, SuicideGirls, Amazon.

I try and make a habit of including @ when I'm talking about someone on Twitter. My reasoning for this is, I don't talk behind someone's back. If I talk about someone and they are not present, I make sure they find out what I have said. I hate gossip. And I hate talking out of school. So to make sure nothing can ever get back to anyone a la "telephone wire game", I make sure they know I am talking about them. Also gives them the opportunity to share their side, pov, etc.

I don't think you were wrong. There is more to the conversation that I am assuming you missed. The person behind the twitter said he did his research and all that he could find was "net neutrality and ECA... Period". A lot of people, including myself, came back with, "then you didn't do your research. Have you read any of his books? Read his blog? Listened to any of his interviews, podcast?" And to make it even more sad, if he really did his research and looked in GamerPolitics own archives, he would have found the following: http://gamepolitics.com/2008/05/01/actor-wil-wheaton-weighs-in-on-gta-iv-controversy I had tweeted, "I almost gave @GamePolitics a Pro Tip on how to go about getting an interview. But my nerd rage is about to get the better of me so I won't" because honest to Bob, if his intent was to get you to do an interview or talk to him about how you've advocated, the dude went about it the wrong way. IMO he should have done his research first, found out every thing you have done, made notes about information he wanted but couldn't find and, most importantly, found out who you were. And by who, I mean who you are as a real, normal, every day person. Someone who just happens to have a high profile job, giving him some extra leverage to bring light to certain issues. And then approached you with something like, "Hey Wil. You do loads for the gaming community! Mind if I ask some questions for a story?" But then again, what do I know. I've only had the awesome pleasure to interview normal people who are lucky enough to have high profile jobs. The guy claims his intentions were free from malice. However, if he had any clue about the gaming culture or who you are as a person, he would have approached it in a completely different way. IMO, he was completely off base. He ended up following me after I sent him a lot of near nerd rage-y tweets. I followed him back, only so that I could find out what more was to be said on this matter. Anyway, just my two cents.

Late Happy Birthday, Wil. Wished you a happy birthday on Twitter yesterday but did not see this post until today. It was my website's 1 year anni yesterday. That was not intentional. I was a little OH NO, when I came to the realization earlier this week. I hope you had a fantabulous day, sir! How does it feel to be 38?
