I don't give you good odds on getting your Kindle back, but I admire you for trying. Also, I have mine password protected so in the event I lose it, whoever gets it won't be able to go on a spending spree. Finally, remember that if you don't get it back, you can still get back all the books and games you purchased for it on a new device. Good luck, Wil.

Even though I am a US person, working in the airline industry, we use 24 hour time so often that I didn't realize you had done something unusual with the time until I got to your footnote. Then I was like, Oh yeah, most people don't read time like that. Of course, military and ex-military people are somewhat used to it as well. Glad the audition went well and I hope you get the part.

The brewcade idea sounds totally awesome, and I would go out of my way to visit it if I was ever in SoCal. Definitely, a place for geeks who drink beer.

I won't be at the con, but I completely understand your not wanting to get sick and limiting contact with fans. Travelling is stressful and I've gotten sick during or immediately after a trip too many times to count. I always take some Airborne with me now and it does seem to help. Anyhow, hope you are having a great time at the con, that your travel home is uneventful and safe, and that you don't get sick!

Awesome post Wil, even though it was a sad one. Sometimes death takes a while to sink in...when my father passed away, it took me well over a year before I started to process it (and when I did it was not in healthy ways.) Thanks for sharing. Stand By Me is a great film, it's kind of eerie how much stuff in it came true in real life.

Wow, that's wild! I have an autographed copy of Scott's book, and of some of your books as well. Two great things that go great together. I have seen that Infini-tee advertised on his site but I didn't remember about it until I saw you mention his name. I've stolen his one tagline "Your hide will make a fine poncho!" as my signature on some message boards (ones that have a sense of humor, of course.)

The first airline I ever worked for (a regional carrier) was in the midst of a Chapter 11 restructuring towards the end of my time there. This was before company email was common (in 1995) but we did get "daily updates" transmitted across a printer and distributed to our office. In one of the updates, it talked about how we as employees needed to strive to maintain a PREFESSIONAL attitude. Nice word to misspell, guys. In another one, they began a sentence with the word "as" misspelled as "ass." So, one of my co-workers and I used to joke that "Ass always, we needed to strive to be true prefessionals." Good times. The airline did ultimately survive their time in bankruptcy before being bought out by American Eagle a few years later.

This story kind of reminded me of another blogger I follow who usually starts his entries "In which..." Glad the soup was tasty. The Guiness bread sounds awesome!

I loved Letterman back when I was in college and let's see that was...holy crap! Twenty YEARS ago? What happened? I still like catching him occasionally but he definitely has mellowed a lot...but like you say, perhaps a lot of us have also.

Very sorry for your loss, Wil. You and Anne gave Ferris an awesome home.

I lived in Vegasland for about three years. All the good old trashy dives have moved off the Strip...you can still find some on Boulder Highway, though, along with cheap steaks.

I remember one time at Famous Dave's, when I was living in Wisconsin, I had a waitress come by and ask me if everything was all right. (Not excellent, though.) I had already eaten most of my food at this point (it was very good) but I told her, "No, it tastes HORRIBLE! I can't stand it!" And I thought she would get the joke when she saw my empty plate but instead she looks like she's about to break into tears and says "Really?" I had to assure her I was joking. I think I left a larger than normal tip that day as well.

Man, that sounds awesome. If I could be there, I would, but there's this unfortunate "work" thing that will keep me away. Hope everyone who can make it has a blast!

Awesome cartoon, Wil. That would be cool if they could make it a series of some kind....anyhow, thanks for sharing, it was great.

This is one of those posts that I have no idea what is being discussed but I still find it awesome. I guess I'm not a gamer.

It's kind of scary how close this comic resembles the time I met Wil after his Dancing Barefoot reading in Hollywood. Except that I ran to get a pen instead of a knife.

I'm fond of the show Chuck myself for obvious reasons but I think you should pursue whatever you desire most.

The leatherbound edition sounds extremely cool. I can't afford that, but I just may have to pony up for one of the Special Edition regular signed ones...
