Cry all you want, Wil - we had to put one of our cats, Pepper, down over 5 years ago, and I still miss her. I miss her sitting on my lap, purring so loudly and vigorously that we started calling her "Hemi". I'm tearing up now just thinking about her. But you're right - it will get better. Just not right away and likely not for a while. That hole in your family will always be there, and while, down the road, you may get another pet, you will never be able to replace Ferris. Riley will eventually recover, too - don't worry. Animals are far smarter about these things than we may realize.

So sorry to hear, Wil. I've been through the loss of a pet, too, so I can sympathize. My condolences to you and your family... I will miss hearing about Ferris.

Happy birthday, from one who will officially be in her mid-thirties later this year!

I play that game all the time with my friends - only caught two real celebrities with it: Gallagher while walking on the Vegas strip, and David Crosby at a Paul McCartney concert.

Niiice. I took advantage of early voting on Saturday (my disabled mother wanted to do it, so I went ahead and did it, too - yay, peer pressure!).

This is absolutely brilliant - and someone has waaaay too much time on their hands. But still, I wish I would've thought of it!

Confession time: I owned that picture, along with others. Many others. I had a subscription to Teen Beat (which I still believe was far superior to Bop, et al.) that I'd convinced my grandmother to get for me for my sometime-in-the-early-teens birthday. Between that picture and last Saturday's NKOTB concert, I am officially in full-blown nostalgia mode.

This is just a reminder that I will be in Cleveland this weekend. And not Sacramento. Le sigh. $#*% OLAC/MOUG Conference and their selection of Cleveland as a conference location.

My mother has had to watch two friends die slowly and painfully from scleroderma - so I applaud you on participating in this. And I think Jan and Irene would be happy, too. Jan loved TNG, by the way.

Oh, the clown sweater - and with George Michael stubble, too! The likeness is amazing... btw, when will that clown sweater be turned into a t-shirt? *That's* what needs to go into the Cafe Press store!

I'd love to, if I were closer to Seattle - I'll sit here in Chicagoland and patiently wait for the mountain to come to Mohammed. :-)

Wow... a blog that got me both nostalgic *and* angry. Already signed the petition and friended them on MySpace. As for my first time? It was with my dad. Yep, MY DAD. But we went incognito... http://littlenicola.tripod.com/rhpsfull.jpg

D'oh! That was my favorite part of visiting Vegas a few years ago... I was hoping to go again early next year and see LOVE, and was planning on re-visiting the Star Trek Experience. :-(

I remember sneaking in to see the movie with another 12-year-old friend of mine... she recently sent me one of those "sorry for all the shit I put you through when we were teenagers" emails because she's shipping off to Iraq in August - and we've shared tears and memories via the Internet - I told her about how I always associated her with Chris and myself with Gordie. Stand By Me was an integral part of my formative years, and will always be one of my top five favorite movies. Your character helped me come out of my shell and stand up for myself. As far as my favorite blog posts - I'd have to say any of the at-home stories where you marvel at Ryan and Nolan, or where Anne rolls her eyes at your geekiness. The way you write them, I really feel like I'm sitting in the living room with you. Whether through your acting or your writing, you've been a part of my life for over twenty years - and "thank you" doesn't begin to cover it.
