The eggshell business is a typical situation when you're dealing with narcissistic people like my dad. God, all the tiptoeing around my mom did--awful. Divorce can be a beautiful thing. Of course, when it's a parent...only relatively recently did I break the emotional shackles and free myself. When my dad threatened not to come to my wedding, in fact. My father-in-law is eerily similar to my dad, but I am pleased to say that my husband is not at all!

I'm way late to the party here, but this made me think of a cool piece about the moon landing and South Africa by my dissertation advisor: http://www.theatlantic.com/past/docs/issues/99jul/9907apartheidtv.htm. A good read.

It is possible that I may have had to read parts aloud to my husband. Quite possible. P.S. finally got to watch our Tivo'd Big Bang Theory, and we so enjoyed it! I hope you get to reprise your Evil Wil Wheaton character sometime.

looks like another show I don't normally watch will be appearing on the TiVo in the near-ish future :) what you said in your update reminds me of something Stephen Colbert has said: he often feels like he has to apologize to the writers afterwards for mucking up their jokes! I can see how you'd feel responsible for doing justice to the writers' work, and it must be even more pressure when you have only the one shot at it.

looks like you've far exceeded your goal, but I wanted to celebrate Ferris's awesomeness and add a little bit from me and my husband, in memory of the wonderful dogs we've had in our lives as well.

finally watched the ep on the TiVo, and my husband and I loved it! Absolutely perfect casting...we couldn't imagine anyone being a better fit for that role. Awesome. Hope we'll see Chaos again!

Oh Wil, I just saw this. I am so very sorry. Losing a friend is terribly hard, whether he or she has two legs or four. I'd love to read more Ferris stories, if you'd like to write them (not if it's too sad right now, of course). I'm sure those stories will be part of your family's history forever.

Happy 37th, Wil! Hope it's been a fun one.

Yes! I think his speech hit all the right notes, and that was one of the highlights. President Obama. It just sounds so good.

Aw, Wil. This is why we love you. In, uh, a totally non-sweaty way, of course!

We knew this already, but: Ryan totally rocks! (Uh, no pun intended.) I'm with those who say that this will be a good joke between you two...eventually.
