Wil, thanks for another great post! I have always enjoyed libraries and was a voracious reader as a child and am again as an adult. They're like a gallery of life stories, reference material, and far away worlds...all at your fingertips. I got back into reading in 2008 when I borrowed (by happy accident) and read (as there wasn't anything on TV) my first sci-fi novel and thus became the latest-blooming geek ever! In 2009, I decided to donate a dollar to my local library for every book (or other item) I borrowed over the year. I wrote a check for $220.00 for 2009 and $213 for 2010. The staff were a bit stunned about my $1 per book borrowed donation the first time I did it. Then last year, they actively tried to guess the number of books I'd borrowed. I'm not rolling in dough or anything... I just think of the library as supporting my 'reading habit' since I don't smoke or like coffee. I hope other people will read this and consider supporting their libraries anyway they can. Libraries are a more important than anyone ever realizes until they don't have access to one.

This post was great! Thanks Wil! I love reading your work! Your post reminded of my own "tech makes you stupid" moment that occurred after coming home from work particularly drained and foggy. I found myself standing at the front door of our house pressing the unlock button on the remote and I could not figure out why I wasn't hearing the door unlock. A slow realization lifted the fog and a smile spread across my face as I looked blankly down at the remote in my hand; the remote key-less entry fob for my car... Then I began to think why can't we have a 'smart remote' that just knows what we want to unlock or open? Mind you, I'm still waiting for my own personal jet-pack that my friend M.R. promised me in grade 5.

Wil, As I was attempting to wait patiently for your next post, pod cast or whatever... I remembered that you wrote/spoke about how music is much more than filler for you and that you rarely listen to the radio. I think you should check out Pandora by The Music Genome Project. It’s amazing- just like having your own personal DJ for every mood or mindset. Since I didn't find a reference to Pandora in your blog, I felt I should share. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and that it helps with the challenges you are facing!

A motion has been brought forward by starshine diva... "You know what I miss? Wil recording his thoughts before and after an audition. Those made the best podcast pieces ever!" and seconded by ZiggyNJ... "What she said! I am dying for another episode of Radio Free Burrito and the ones where it was you going about your day were great." All in favour say 'Aye'! Aye! Don't you just love democracy Wil?! :)

"I suck at poker" "Trust me, I know from firsthand experience (Hee Haw. Hee Haw.)" "I'm retarded" Wil buddy, will you please cut yourself some slack! Who needs enemies when your are this self-depreciating? (Are you sure your not Canadian...we're really good at it too.) You're a multi-faceted person, and poker is just one facet of your life. Besides, if you aren't make mistakes, you aren't learning anything. Alright then! You can stop now with the mental "D'ohs!" and get back in the game of life. My work here is done... :)

Speaking of prop bets... where's the story about you having to answer to 'Wesley Crusher' for a day? I'm sure there's a good story there...

Wil, wonderful post. When I read it, I could feel that tingly feeling when you go from air conditioning to the warm reality of driving on a summer night. It's kind of a metaphor for the Vegas you were experiencing at the moment - altered reality gives way to the real deal - in order to experience the real deal you have to let reality in. I think your post today should make it into your next book. I've been lurking here for a while and just want to let you know how much I enjoy your "Descriptive Blogging". Good luck with the sleep thing. I'm willing to bet that Vegas has multiplied something as desirable as ample writing material into... ...Can't sleep...Brain too busy...
