I was so spazzed that I wasn't going to make it into line to get Anne-Stitch to you. With the PAX prank (Never Forget!!!) taking so much time during your signing slots last year I nearly didn't get Wil-Stitch to you. SO glad I was able to make sure she made it to you, and it was extra special to be able to actually give her right to Anne! I knew I was the end of the line and that you had ALL THE THINGS to still see and do so didn't want to take a load and a half of your time. I'd really wanted to make the matched pair going back a few years now because I told you a really special story way-way-way back at PAX East about my Dad and watching ST:TNG. You signed my Kindle and wrote a super sweet note on the back. I wanted to do something to say thanks and to make sure you knew how much you really are appreciated by the community. PAXers are pretty fiercely tied together and we love all our peeps! So much so that we make weird stuff for each other. :-3

I had an awesome time. Most of my PAX was taken up by Cookie Brigade and the Lando Society. I'd actually been second in line that afternoon signing when we came to induct you. Sadly, you were running late (not like you're human or anything), so I had to slip out of line and high-tail it to get my Lando stuff. I came back after and was super bummed because they'd closed off the line. I explained to the [e] that I just wanted to hand off my cross-stitch project. Seriously, I made that thing almost ten months ago, for East! It needed to go HOME! He was nice and let me. Um.. You kind of made my day when you took it. You probably barely remember your reaction, but for me it's pretty priceless. I love making stuff for people, and I was so pleased with how that came out since I was working from a tiny image of the 'you' sprite and QRCs are so unforgiving. I just wanted to make something for you to express my appreciation for letting me share a story with you over a year earlier. A reasonable person has to know that you cannot possibly remember every interaction with every fan, but for us it's kind of a big deal. I got to tell you about my Dad, and you were generous with your time in listening to it. I spent a lot of my weekend around Bioware, with a mustache stuck to my face. I stood on the front steps of the convention centre and told all how I Learned to Accept my Facial Hair and Love the 'Stache (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFdAFf1OYgo). I gave out a ton of cookies (Cookie Brigade did $14,276 for Child's Play) and I may have played some games. Just a few. At one point I waited in line a second time (or is it technically third) for you to quick-sign my PAX Forum Badge. I didn't linger, even though I wanted to, because DAMN but you looked bushwacked dude, for realz. #truefacts Did some kind of con-funk go 'round? Seemed a lot of Bandland was out of sorts. I loved the Dragon Age panel. Felicia Day was an awesome surprise. My hubby actually had seen her earlier on the floor and thought somebody was 'cosplaying' her or just looked a lot alike. When he told me that I laughed myself into choking. It was an awesome PAX. Never Forget! :-{

Did you happen to write the trim crochet pattern? I've not got an up close look at it but the idea of dick trim amuses me to no end. I really want to make it to trim dishtowels with. I was going to embroider a bunch of dicks onto towels for a housewarming gift for a good friend. Tiny, crocheted, cotton string dick trim would be AWESOME! And we all know it's not the SIZE of the trim but how you place it. ;-)

Yes.. I am familiar with this feeling. The same thing happened the other day while I was texting back and forth to my Mother-in-law. I finally dialed her, she picked up, and I promptly said, "This is SO much easier!"

Am I the only one who thinks she looks like a young Mira Furlan (Delenn) from Babylon 5?

Like many former Star Trek cast members Wil developed a predilection for strange, non human species.

Sharing this amazing weekend with so many different people of the same or similar ilk as me was incredible. From RPG geeks to video game geeks, board game players, craft geeks, sci-fi geeks.. Everything in between. Than, to get to cap it off by getting to meet you and tell you the story about my Dad made for a memorable event. Thanks for signing ALL my books! All 165 of them. Sunday's Kindle Girl.

I know what you said about the mortar of gaming holding friendships together is true of my group. We all game together and have amazingly strong friendships. The man I married and who I've loved for a decade is a person I met while playing a text based RPG online. We still play that game, just from the same room, on laptops. I have friends in age brackets I'd never have become so close to without having met through the veil of an RPG. Pax is amazing, because all these people, yourself included, understand this. For us it isn't weird or hard to understand. For us it's NORMAL.
